Real Estate

Real estate is an industry built on relationships. Buyers, sellers, investors, and lenders depend on not only our legal acumen and business advice, but also our connections with key players in the real estate arena. Time and time again, our network has proven invaluable in getting our clients' deals over the finish line.

Real Estate

No business operates in a vacuum. This is particularly true when it comes to real estate, where deals are negotiated within a complex system of legal, financial, and regulatory elements. Clients call on Much to guide them through single-asset and portfolio transactions across the country, from purchases and financings to sales and leasing. We never forget the human factor and develop strategies that consider the different personalities and motivations that surface in every project.

Our clients own, develop, finance, and manage properties in many industries, including multifamily, industrial, office, medical office, restaurants and hospitality, manufactured housing, cannabis, retail, and long-term care.

“When I founded Cinespace Chicago, we had one building with five soundstages. Over the next several years, the Much team helped me expand the Cinespace real estate footprint to 11 buildings with nearly 50 soundstages over 60 acres in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. Much not only helped me grow my property, they helped me grow the family business into a billion-dollar enterprise.”
