Butler Burgher Group Accelerates National Growth with New Chicago Office

Posted On September 3, 2013

DALLAS – (September 3, 2013) Butler Burgher Group is pleased to announce expansion to the Windy City. The firm’s national reach now includes an office in Chicago, located at 200 West Monroe Street, Suite 610, which is now open.

The expansion was sparked by the recruitment of five highly reputable valuation professionals to the already experienced BBG team. Mike D’Alessandro, Managing Director, is leading the efforts in Chicago. He is a seasoned multi-family specialist, particularly in the agency business, with strong Midwest market knowledge. Many of D’Alessandro’s clients are also long-term BBG clients in other cities, and all are excited about the synergy already established.

Joining D’Alessandro is Chad Bosley, MAI, MRICS in the role of Director. Bosley is also well known in the region as an industrial specialist and brings significant experience in office and retail as well. His core clients have been REIT and Institutional clients, which also match up well with existing BBG relationships.

The team is rounded out with Jim Kozak, Senior Appraiser; Gene Hart, Analyst and Debbie Maynard, Project Manager. With this high-level talent, the Chicago office is expected to become a dominant player in the Midwest and top producer within the company. This team brings multi-family, industrial, office and retail specialists to the table, adding to the depth of experience BBG already offers.

“The development of a Chicago office was a strategic effort,” said CEO Diane Butler. “We are thrilled by this move. This further expands our Midwest Region [existing offices in Detroit and Cleveland], which is headed by Marc G. Nassif, MAI, LEED AP.”

“We have been critically evaluating Chicago for some time. I couldn’t be more excited about this incredible team and the decision to join BBG. As our company grows, Chicago will become a key market for us to serve the entire region.”
