Coordinate Properties is a woman-owned, Chicago-based commercial real estate service with deep local roots in the industry and expert knowledge of the contemporary market.
Principal, Founder & Managing Broker
Amanda has worked in many facets of commercial real estate throughout her career. Starting as a legal intern at the office of the Cook County Treasurer, she gained knowledge of the intricate nature of real estate taxes and the interplay between government and commercial business. Her experience in the public sector continued as a judicial extern for Justice Charles E. Freeman at the Illinois Supreme Court, where she drafted opinions that would later hold precedent in Illinois state law.
After law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law, she sought an opportunity to marry her interests in both law and business and entered the private sector. While working for other commercial brokerages in Chicago, she began to manage a diverse real-estate portfolio as the chief legal counsel and preferred broker of Megara Properties.
Amanda is versed in lease drafting, negotiation, commercial and residential closings, title searches, property management, collections, and commercial evictions. Given her strong entrepreneurial upbringing, Amanda hopes to re-define Megara’s portfolio through development and to evolve with Chicago’s ever changing real-estate landscape. Seeing a serious lack of woman led commercial real estate brokerage and development companies, she started Coordinate Properties as the vehicle to accomplish her endeavors.
