Joe Smazal

Senior Managing Partner

I take pride in becoming an extension of my clients’ team and in adding significant value to their acquisitions or dispositions when the time is right. In 2014, I joined Interra from a large national real estate brokerage. I have found Interra’s platform to be the best for representing my clients and enjoy having a tangible impact on the growth of an open-minded boutique firm.

Through hard work and great relationships, I’m proud to have established myself as a leader in the sale of multifamily properties in Chicago, evidenced by over $425MM in career transaction volume, including over $300MM since 2017.

I graduated from the University of Iowa where I studied marketing and entrepreneurship, and am now a licensed real estate broker in the State of Illinois. I enjoy living in the Lincoln Park neighborhood with my wife and two sons.
