COMMERCIAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
We are very pleased with the growth of our commercial property management portfolio. Properties include office buildings, retail shopping facilities, and mixed use properties, in the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago. We realize that to be successful in this economy, the relationship between ownership and tenants must be stronger than ever. That is where our "hands on" approach to property management comes in to focus. We are currently growing this division and look toward doubling our commercial management portfolio over the next few years. For more information about commercial property management, click on Request A Proposal and we will be glad to provide more details and prepare a proposal for your property management needs.
Go to the "Our Listings" tab at left and click on the category that fits your needs to view our current listings. Whether you are looking for a new place to call home or a new home for your business, all of our current listings are ready for your virtual inspection. Once you see a property that matches your needs, let us know and we will be glad to set up a showing. If you don't see a good match in our list of available properties, call and let us know what you are looking for so we can try to find the right fit for your needs.
COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION MANAGEMENT
If your condominium or town home association is looking for help, you're in the right place. Our association management portfolio includes the first property built in Chicago as a condominium to new construction, from a 10 unit building to a 10 building complex. We understand that no two associations are alike. We take the time to get to know your association's needs so that we can provide the service that is best suited to your organization. Let us show you what we can do for you. Click on Request A Proposal to find out more about the services we offer and to request a proposal.
REDEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION
Our newest division, Redevelopment and Construction, focuses on working with property owners to get the most out of their properties. When it is time to move a property in a new direction, we can provide assistance in developing a property to its highest and best use. We work through the design and architectural drawing phase; the municipal approval phase including zoning, architectural review, and permit approvals; as well as the construction phase. We also work with commercial properties performing build-out and renovation services for owners and tenants alike. We would be happy to work with you on your next development or construction project.
Schermerhorn & Co. was formed in 1967 and started out serving Evanston and the surrounding communities. Our company was founded by J. P. Schermerhorn who served as Chairman of the Board from 1967 - 2012. Over the past 45+ years we have expanded our service area to include the North Side of Chicago, the North and Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, and Southern Wisconsin. We employ a very "hands-on" approach to managing the properties in our portfolio. We get to know our clients' needs as well as the needs of the properties themselves. Our goal is to enhance the value of each property we manage through constant attention to the specific needs of each property and client. We live in the communities we serve and look forward to continuing our commitment to the Real Estate Industry for many years to come.
Certifications and Recognitions
As Real Estate Professionals the commitment to our profession is a key to our knowledge and growth. Our agents are members of the National Association of Realtors, Institute of Real Estate Management, Illinois Association of Realtors, and the North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors.
We have eight experienced property managers in our office. Each manager focuses on individual property types in order to provide our clients and customers with knowledge and professionalism specific to their property's needs. Our managers have over 100 years of experience between them. We are all committed to the Management, Leasing and Sale of Real Estate.
Office and Staff
Our office is fully equipped with an integrated network of computer and communication systems. We have full access to all the Residential and Commercial Property Listing Services, the Public Record Searches, and other tools and services that our agents need in order to better serve you.
Our accounting staff has the tools and programs they need to keep track of each property's financial records. On a daily basis all receipts and disbursements are recorded to each property so that the property manager has the latest financial information at their finger tips. This allows the property manager to keep our clients up to date as to the financial condition of their properties.
Our administrative staff provides the support necessary to allow our managers to focus on your needs. They are the backbone to the personal approach we use in our business. When you call, you will speak to our staff immediately. Your call will be answered personally and you will be directed to the appropriate manager or staff member without having to push buttons in an impersonal phone menu. Our staff will help you with whatever request you have. From general inquiries to emergencies; we are with you every step of the way.
