4 Midwest Real Estate News ® Special Supplement www.rejournals.com HONORING THE BEST OF THE BEST This issue of Midwest Real Estate News ranks as my favorite every year. The Best of the Best issue is the one time all year in which we honor those real estate developers, brokerages, lenders and other affiliated businesses who make this such an amazing industry to cover. It takes real skill to survive in the commercial real estate industry. This has been made abundantly clear during the last several years. The national economic slump hit our business especially hard. This wasn’t surprising. You can’t expect consumers to go on shopping binges when they’re struggling to pay their mortgage loans each month. You can’t expect companies to invest in new office space when they’re doing everything they can to keep their doors open for another week. What is the good news? The commercial real estate industry is now firmly in the midst of a slow, but steady, recovery. Just check out our recent issues of Midwest Real Estate News. You’ll see brokers, developers and lenders from across the Midwest talking about the signs of hope they are seeing in their markets. These commercial pros are seeing every commercial real estate sector – even the hard-hit office and retail sectors – improving. Simply put, there is more commercial real estate activity taking place in 2012. And that’s good news. You can bet, too, that the commercial real estate companies that ranked in this Best of the Best supplement are behind our industry’s recovery. These are the businesses, after all, that survived the hard times. These are the businesses that persevered even when the country’s economic troubles seemed insurmountable. We’re fortunate that the commercial real estate industry is home to so many business-savvy companies and individuals. And we at Midwest Real Estate News Magazine are happy to showcase these top companies for our readers. Just a quick note: The companies showcased here rank as the largest commercial real estate firms that responded to our survey. Remember, we can’t rank those companies that don’t respond to us.
