One recipient is chosen each year by the SIOR Chicago Chapter Executive Board as a member they feel exemplifies outstanding achievements both in and out of the commercial real estate industry.
The award’s namesake, Richard G. Levy, was a highly-revered leader within the real estate community who typified the elements of professionalism, business acumen and strong personal and business ethics that represent the goals of each Chicago Chapter SIOR member.
Receiving the award was especially meaningful to Steven, as Levy served as a principal alongside him at Podolsky|Circle’s predecessor firm for 13 years, and was a fellow member of the SIOR Chicago Chapter.
“Richard Levy was not only my business partner, but a close friend and unofficial older brother. Our relationship spanned approximately 30 years,” Steven said.
Approximately 150 people attended the event, including Steven’s wife and daughters as well as Levy’s widow, Penny Levy, and all three Levy children and their spouses.
