Ready to move to downtown Chicago or to a Chicago neighborhood, but want to rent before you buy? As managing director for Peak Properties, Shane Rachman and his team can help. Rachman is leading Peak Properties through an expansion, growing from a successful full-service management and leasing operation to add a for-sale brokerage, servicing clients who need purchase and sale services in addition to leasing, management and investment services.
Currently, Rachman oversees the leasing of more than 600 buildings serving more than 12,000 renters. He manages a team of more than 20 rental agents and support staff and works with property owners, investors and institutions to keep their buildings occupied and analyze prospective deals.

He has collaborated with others at Peak Properties to restructure the administrative side of the leasing office and is interested in all facets of the real estate industry, and he plans to grow the brokerage’s technology to streamline services and create the best possible consumer experience.
Previously in the medical device industry and now with three years in the brokerage business under his belt, Rachman credits his knowledgeable mentors for assisting him in launching his second career.
