Austin Parker – an Associate on the Birk | Sklar team – has been promoted to Advisor after nearly two years with the company. In this new role, Parker will focus on helping investors buy and sell multifamily properties between two and four units throughout Chicago.
“It’s an honor to work alongside such incredible people,” Kiser Group Advisor Austin Parker said. “The work we do at Kiser Group impacts not only the clients we serve, but also residents across the city. I’m proud to be part of this team and look forward to assisting investors in a greater capacity.”
As an Associate, Parker focused on the South Side market supporting the company’s top producing brokers. “We’re excited to see Austin have an even greater impact on our brokerage clients in this new Advisor role,” Partner Aaron Sklar said. “His dedication and ability to exceed expectations are a recipe for success – for both himself and our team.”
“When Austin came on board, he brought a fresh and unique perspective to our team,” Partner Noah Birk said. “This promotion is a natural and well-deserved step for someone with his skill set, and we know he’s going to do great things in his career.”
In addition to Parker’s promotion, Kiser Group hired Ben Goldman as a new Associate to support the Birk | Sklar team. Goldman is a recent graduate of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he served as president of the Rho Epsilon Student Real Estate Association. He brings with him experience in business operations, leadership, leasing and marketing.
“The Birk | Sklar team has experienced great success in the past few years,” Kiser Group Principal and Managing Broker Lee Kiser said. “We’re excited to see their continued success and anticipate additional further growth.”
The announcement of these new roles comes on the heels of a very active first half of the year for Kiser Group’s Birk | Sklar team. In the first half of 2021, the team brokered 30 buildings totaling 533 units across Chicago’s south and west side neighborhoods, and this year’s momentum is expected to continue.
