CORFAC International Welcomes Darwin Realty to the Network

CORFAC is pleased to announce Darwin Realty/CORFAC International, in the western Chicago suburb of Elmhurst, IL, is the newest U.S. affiliate to join our growing global network. Darwin Realty is the first U.S.-based firm to join CORFAC this year, building on 2019’s record-setting growth of seven new firms.  

“CORFAC International is thrilled to have a new affiliate in the Chicago suburban market that has such depth of industrial real estate expertise, a proven track record of success in the market and very highly respected brokers in the industry,” said 2020 CORFAC International President Alan Joel, CCIM, of Joel and Granot Real Estate/CORFAC International in Atlanta, GA. 

“Darwin fits into our need for a strong industrial group in Chicago, complementing our existing CORFAC member ProTen Realty Group on the office side. We are now looking at a couple of strong retail/Investment sales groups in Chicago to help round out that mega-market,” Joel added.  

Darwin Realty, which serves the Northeast Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana markets, specializes in industrial and office brokerage, investment sales, asset/property management and development. 

Established in 1975 by George Cibula and Irv Lewandowski, Darwin Realty’s brokers have spent the past four decades cultivating many long-term relationships with the area’s top business leaders and possess a great deal of in-depth local market expertise. 

“As an established leader for industrial real estate services in the Midwest, Darwin Realty is thrilled to become part of the CORFAC global network,” said Noel Liston, Principal of Darwin Realty/CORFAC International. “Serving our clients in the Chicagoland area for 45 the past years, Darwin looks forward to adding global supply chain capabilities through our CORFAC network in the increasingly connected global industrial market.”
