Interra Elevates Smazal, Feldman to Sr. Managing Partners

Interra Realty has promoted Joe Smazal and Brad Feldman from managing partners to senior managing partners. Smazal has completed more than $200 million in multifamily sales since 2017, while Feldman has closed more than 80 multifamily or mixed-use property sales collectively valued at more than $100 million during the past three years.

Recent deals brokered by Smazal include the $30 million deconversion sale of 445 W. Wellington Ave., a 15-story, 117-unit condo building in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Smazal helped to educate more than 100 individual owners on the benefits of a bulk sale, guided them through the voting process and ensured a successful close.

Brad Feldman

Feldman joined Interra in 2011, a year after its founding, and has been instrumental in the firm’s success. Over the past three years, he reportedly has ranked second out of all Chicago multifamily brokers in the number of sale transactions over $1 million.
