Education Consultants Renew Space in Frankfort

NAI Hiffman’s Steve Chrastka has represented Educators Advancement Group (EAG) in its lease renewal of 20,521 square feet at the 20624 Abbey Woods Court building in Frankfort, IL. The property recently changed hands via a foreclosure and auction, and Chrastka was able to help EAG navigate through the ownership transition.

“Being a tenant during any transition of ownership, especially in a REO/distressed situation, is difficult,” said Chrastka. “Knowing how to assemble the best team of attorneys and professional services to protect my client was key to completing this transaction. In the end, both EAG and the new ownership were able to form a new partnership going forward, and I am proud to have had a role in it.”

Founded in 2003, EAG is an education consultation firm providing consulting and professional services nationwide to both K-12 level educators and to institutes of higher education.
