Real Estate Profile: Collin Schaible

Industrial sales associate, NAI MLG Commercial

Title: Industrial Sales Associate

Company: NAI MLG Commercial

Education: Marquette University, graduate in 2008, double major in commercial real estate and marketing.

Family: "I’m the oldest of five siblings and originally from Kansas City, Mo."

City of Residence: Milwaukee

What are you working on? "I have several listings throughout Milwaukee and I’m currently listing a group of great buildings that fit a variety of users. I have the Heather Business Center available for sale and lease in the northwest section of Milwaukee that fits a flex user looking for a good blend of high end office and warehouse space. I also have space available as far south as the airport, as far north as Germantown, and as far west as Hartland. I’ve been working hard on finding tenants and buyers for these deals and look forward to closing my first one."    

How does the market look to you? "If there is one word I could use to describe the market it would be hesitancy. From speaking with business owners and company presidents, many local businesses in the Milwaukee area are fiscally doing well, yet they are apprehensive to move forward with any major real estate decisions due to specific issues such as the uncertain and volatile state of the economy as well as the new political landscape. However, with all that said, businesses are still out there looking to expand and grow, which for brokers is always a great thing. I think businesses are just a bit more cautious in their approach and are doing more research into what they want before they pull the trigger on a real estate transaction."  

What was the best deal you’ve ever been involved in? "The best deal I ever got involved in was getting into this business and having an opportunity to work for MLG. It’s an incredibly exciting business that I’m thrilled to be involved in."  

What was the funniest moment of your career? "I wouldn’t say that there has been a single specific moment, but rather a cumulative one. During the day-to-day operations of being a broker, including cold calling, networking and attending other industry events, you meet a variety of people running the spectrum of personalities. Some of the people you meet are pretty unique (to say the least) and at times can be some of the most entertaining people you can ever imagine. But it’s a part of this business that I love and really enjoy. It certainly keeps things interesting and unique."
