Joe Smazal

Senior Managing Partner

I sell apartment buildings in Chicagoland. Current and prospective clients will find me to be honest and direct, and I’m proud of my reputation for putting my client’s interests before mine. In 2014, I joined Interra from a large, national firm. Interra’s platform is great for my clients, and it’s been rewarding to help the firm grow and improve.

I have personally sold over 200 properties, comprised of over 4,000 units, for a total consideration of over $650,000,000. In recent years, I’ve been the most active broker in the sale of $2MM+ multifamily buildings in Chicago.

In addition to being a broker, I’m a devoted dad (Jack and Will), overachieving husband (Kate), yard-tinkering Chicago resident (Lincoln Park), erratic golfer (VERY erratic), multifamily owner/operator (small buildings/great locations) and homegrown Hawkeye (marketing and entrepreneurship).
