Interra Adds Associate Brokers for Next Phase of Growth

Interra Realty expanded its brokerage team with two new associate brokers, Michael Duckler and Mark Dykstra. Both are based at Interra’s downtown Chicago offices.

Duckler most recently was an agent with CAA Brand Consulting, the Los Angeles- and Chicago-based entertainment and sports marketing agency within Creative Artists Agency, where he developed strong client service, marketing and management skills. Dykstra recently earned his bachelor’s degree in management from Indiana University. While in college, he had several internships in investing, proptech, and tax and accounting.

“As we continue to expand, it’s imperative for us to hire and develop young talent who will fuel our next chapter of growth,” said David Goss, co-founder and managing principal of Interra. “Michael and Mark will work alongside senior brokers to learn the Interra way, delivering the same personalized service and hyperlocal expertise that, together, differentiate our firm.”
