Essex Completes Quartet of Multi Sales Across North Side

Essex Realty Group recently completed the sales of four multifamily properties across Chicago’s North Side. Two of these sales were accounted for by one seller and one buyer, who were not identified: 2031 W. Armitage Ave. in Bucktown and 826 N. Winchester in Ukrainian Village, which traded for a total of about $1.5 million. The firm’s Abe Eilian and Doug Fisher represented the seller, and Matt Welke, Vic Ciancetta and Matt Feo represented the buyer.

The brokerage also arranged the $1.3 million sale of 738 N. May St. in West Town, a six-unit building that was gut rehabbed in 2011. Essex’s Doug Imber, Kate Varde and Clay Maxfield were the brokers on the transaction.

Maxfield and Varde also represented the buyer in the acquisition of 5526 N. Artesian Ave. for approximately $557,500.
