Taurus Modal Group rebrands as TMG Real Estate Advisors, expands offerings

Taurus Modal Group, a Chicago-based real estate advisory firm focused on tenant and buyer (occupier) representation, has announced its brand re-launch as TMG Real Estate Advisors (TMG). Coinciding with its five-year anniversary, the TMG brand embraces the firm’s industrial and office real estate brokerage roots, while also recognizing its broader focus as a multi-disciplinary real estate advisory firm.

TMG’s expanded service offerings include strategic consulting, construction services, supply chain solutions, project management, lease administration, portfolio management and workplace strategy.

Amid the current economic conditions stemming from COVID-19, TMG has quickly stepped up to address the shifting operational and capital expenditure needs of its occupier clients across essential industries such as third-party logistics (3PLs), pharmaceutical, insurance and those in the logistics cold chain.

“We have always strived to be an innovative corporate real estate services firm—delivering solutions that go beyond sale and lease transactions. By incorporating data-driven analytics, business intelligence and focus on the tenant experience throughout the lifecycle of the process, we are setting up our clients for continued success beyond the current crisis,” said Marat Safir, co-founder of TMG Real Estate Advisors.

Focused exclusively on real estate occupiers, TMG is unencumbered by the inherent conflict of interest that most firms face when representing both landlord and tenants. This distinction has been exceptionally valuable amid current real estate volatility, as clients look for trusted advisors like TMG to identify optimal space solutions, evaluate potential new markets, right-size operations and workflow and to identify creative financial structuring.

“While our competitors are weighed down by the burden of multiple listings and vacant properties, our focus on tenants and buyers has allowed us to be more nimble and jump in quickly to help our clients evaluate their real estate exposure in the midst of the pandemic,” said Dan Smolensky, SIOR, co-founder of TMG Real Estate Advisors. “During the COVID-19 crisis our supply chain solutions group has experienced almost no slow down; in fact we found several new opportunities. We have been leveraging our technology platform so our clients can continue to evaluate properties without ever stepping foot inside the property.”

Since its founding in 2015 by industry veterans Smolensky and Safir, TMG has completed millions of square feet of sale and lease transactions while achieving more than 270 percent revenue growth. TMG is on its way to similar success with the addition of its construction, workplace and project management offerings. With a partner network spanning more than 300 markets across the globe, TMG services its clients globally.
