The pandemic forced a number of businesses into survival mode in 2020, but for Taylor Johnson client Interra Realty, a year of unexpected challenges was also a year of growth, with the firm’s multifamily transactions up nearly 20% over 2019. That performance is a testament to the tenacity and ingenuity of Interra’s team, including emerging leaders like Jeremy Morton, a director at the firm. Morton was one of the first Interra brokers to launch virtual walkthrough videos, allowing investors – including out-of-state buyers – to tour properties remotely. Taylor Johnson incorporated his pandemic pivots into a successful nomination for Connect Commercial Real Estate’s 2021 Next Generation Awards, and Morton was one of just 10 CRE professionals named to the Chicago & Midwest list. Morton and the Interra team have kept busy so far in 2021, brokering multifamily sales in Chicago’s Wrigleyville, Lakeview and South Shore neighborhoods in recent weeks.
