New SVP will co-lead Metro Commercial Real Estate’s Chicago office

Reuben Rischall joins Metro Commercial Real Estate as a senior vice president, following five years with Iowa-based Buyers Realty Inc. He will co-lead the new Chicago office, located at 1332 N. Halsted Street in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, with senior vice president Jonathan Hyman. Opening this month, the office will focus on urban transactions.

Rischall works with hospitality and retail clients on a local, regional and national basis to serve their commercial real estate needs. Throughout his real estate career, Rischall has partnered with both established and start-up tenants and buyers to drive their site selection, leasing, development and sales process. He currently represents Office Depot, Dollar General, Harbor Freight Tools, Cricket Wireless, Colectivo Coffee, Royal Kids, Furious Spoon Ramen Shop, Bombay Wraps, Wonderoll and Mott Street.

In addition, Rischall represents high-profile landlords and developers by marketing, negotiating and executing their leasing and sales needs. He recently completed a redevelopment of a vacant 100,000 square foot shopping center and is now in the process of a similar redevelopment.
