Connelly Elevated to Principal at 33 Realty

Sean Connelly has been named principal at 33 Realty. A leading middle-market broker specializing in multifamily, Connelly has amassed career transactions valued at $400 million plus.

Connelly (pictured) joined 33 in 2014 as a managing director of investment brokerage, and has played an instrumental role in the firm’s growth ever since. Under his leadership, 33’s investment brokerage team has accomplished over $100 million in sales each year over the past three years.

Additionally, 33’s sister company Cubed Construction landed one of its largest construction projects, 1,000-plus units of student housing in Hyde Park; and 33’s property management company was awarded several management assignments.

“Not only is Sean a great leader, but he is also an excellent broker,” said 33 principal Drew Millard. “Professionals with his skill set are few and far between. He is an invaluable member of our team and a driving force behind company growth and culture.”

Connect Chicago Fall 2019 will take place Oct. 29 in Chicago. For more information, or to register, click here.
