Interra Realty Adds Two Team Members to Support Growth

Interra Realty has hired Michael Sessa as associate and Sydney Wysocki as marketing coordinator to support the firm’s continued growth. Despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Interra brokered $239.7 million in sales in 2020, a 24% increase over 2019.

Sessa will work with Brad Feldman, senior managing partner. A graduate of the University of Michigan, he holds a Bachelor of Arts in economics and Master of Management from the Ross School of Business. During his college years, he completed internships with OCA Ventures, U.S. Bank and Colliers International. Sessa, who grew up in suburban Hinsdale, is a licensed real estate broker in the state of Illinois.

Wysocki joins Interra’s marketing team and, in her new role, will develop and produce campaigns to support brokers, with responsibility for writing, social media, graphic design and more. Previously, she was a marketing assistant with law firm Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP.
