Stream Realty Partners expands Chicago team with hire of experienced tenant rep

Brian Duffy

Stream Realty Partners has hired Brian Duffy as senior vice president of tenant representation. With seven years of tenant representation experience, Duffy will help source new and support existing leasing efforts, assist in recruitment to expand the team and source and execute acquisition and development opportunities.

“Our Chicago office is quickly expanding its footprint and the addition of Brian was crucial for growth with current and future clients,” said Patrick Russo, managing director at Stream in Chicago. “Stream’s platform is agile and enterprising, structured to deliver the efficiencies of scale with speed. We look forward to Brian leveraging that flexibility and help us build one of the strongest teams in Chicago.”

Most recently, Duffy served as director of tenant representation transaction advisory at Cushman & Wakefield, participating in over 125 transactions valued close to $600 million. His clients span all sectors in size and scope, including technology, manufacturing and legal.

“I had previously heard about Stream, but when I learned about how you are empowered to act in the best interest of your clients, unencumbered by layers of decision-making protocols focused on the bottom-line, that is what drew me in,” Duffy said. “I can truly do what is best for my clients while maximizing my potential across all sectors of commercial real estate.”
