Expansion to Chicago enables CARMEN Commercial Real Estate to empower businesses to accelerate their growth.

Chicago, IL – Answering strong demands for its Tenant Advisor services, CARMEN Commercial Real Estate has announced plans to expand by opening an office located in downtown Chicago. CARMEN has recognized an increasing demand for its Tenant Representation services outside Greater Indianapolis, particularly in Chicago.

CARMEN is a Commercial Tenant Representation firm that has established a reputation in the industry over the past 24 years for its deep commitment to advocating for the rights of tenants during commercial office negotiations. CARMEN’s clients have continually asked the firm’s President, Chris Carmen, to help them with expansion plans outside the state of Indiana. The firm has met its clients’ needs through its network of Tenant Representation firms around the U.S.

In addition to its existing clients, CARMEN has garnered interest from businesses located in several new markets outside of Indiana and particularly from Chicago. “The conflict of interest that occurs when commercial real estate brokers represent both tenants and landlords isn’t exclusive to Indiana,” said Chris Carmen, President of CARMEN Commercial Real Estate. “Businesses leasing office space in every city find themselves the underdog in the lease negotiations when the real estate brokerage firm representing them also represents the landlord — leaving them to fend for themselves because the broker’s loyalty will almost always favor the landlord,” he continued.

The Chicago expansion marks CARMEN’s first office outside of Indiana. “Our new Chicago location extends CARMEN’s heritage of delivering extraordinary representation and advocacy for businesses of all sizes with an exclusive focus on tenant needs,” said Carmen. “The demand for our services keeps growing,” he said. “We are thrilled and incredibly motivated to meet the needs of our existing and potential clients’ growth goals. Of course, to do so, it also means that we have to grow too.”


CARMEN has focused exclusively on tenant representation and providing clients with corporate real estate services since 1993. Businesses that lease new office space or negotiate an existing lease, get CARMEN’s full attention. The CARMEN team consistently represents the interests of office and industrial tenants and never the interests of landlords or landlords’ agents.

As the Tenant Advisor, CARMEN provides clients with up to date market intelligence, resources, and extensive industry experience, which we leverage to get clients lease terms that consistently beat the market.  Ultimately, we save clients time and money and CARMEN’s continued client relationships are evidence of the success of meeting and exceeding our clients’ needs.
