CHICAGO, IL – ConnectCRE recently featured an article from Interra Realty’s Managing Partner Ted Stratman about the opportunity for multifamily investors on Chicago’s South Side:

More than a decade ago, we started Interra Realty by brokering multifamily sales on Chicago’s South Side. While our business has grown to encompass nearly every corner of the metro, the South Side remains a foundation of our business – in fact, we remain the leading brokerage for apartment buildings on the South Side, according to CoStar data.
