Keely Polczynski is a 19-year veteran of CBRE where she serves as a senior partner in the CBRE Chicago Capital Markets Institutional Properties team. Following four years of underwriting, due diligence and deal analysis work in CBRE’s Institutional Group, Keely ventured to sole practitioner with the inception of the urban Investment sales practice at CBRE in 2006, growing it to be the dominant market-maker in downtown Chicago by touting the sale of some of the most significant and prominent properties amongst Chicago’s high streets, universally recognized commercial corridors and emerging markets. In 2019, she joined forces with industry veteran Blake Johnson to cover the sale of institutional office towers in Chicago’s CBD.

As a member of CBRE’s Institutional Properties Group, Keely provides a full scope of services required for complex property transactions in her representation of private equity funds, life insurance companies, pension funds, as well as public and private REITS. She consistently delivers superior value to her clients by getting them premium pricing and attractive terms, in turn establishing herself as a top producer in the industry with sales surpassing $5 billion, as well as ranking among the top 10% of all CBRE brokers nationally in 2016, 2017 and 2018. In addition to being regularly quoted in industry publications such as Crain’s, Midwest Real Estate News and Chicago Tribune, Keely serves on the board of CBRE’s Capital Markets Group, CBRE’s America’s Producer Advisory Board and is actively involved in the CBRE’s Women’s Network.
