Andrew Freeman graduated from the University of Denver in 1987. Raised in Chicago, IL, he returned from Denver to begin his real estate career with Corporate Realty Advisors, a leading industrial real estate firm specializing in industrial brokerage in the O’Hare Airport Market.
In 1990, Freeman returned to Colorado to join the Denver Office of Grubb and Ellis. For the next decade, he honed his skills as a highly successful real estate broker focused on industrial real estate in the Denver/Boulder market.
In 2000, Freeman established his own company. Drawing on the expertise he gained from his brokerage career, he has consistently uncovered extraordinary investment opportunities based on his in-depth knowledge of the greater Denver and Chicago markets. Freeman’s first acquisition was a vacant 20,000 square foot industrial-flex property in Boulder. Understanding there was a very limited supply of competing properties in the market, he placed the property under contract and negotiated a five-year lease with Lockheed Martin Corporation within only 45 days. Now, nearly 20 years later, the property remains100% leased to Lockheed Martin as part of the Freeman Portfolio.
Since his first acquisition, Freeman has steadily built a solid industrial real estate portfolio in Colorado and Illinois. Conservative underwriting combined with sound statistical based assumptions has resulted in an exceptional industrial portfolio that generates strong cash flow with limited downside risk. Combined with well-timed exit strategies, Freeman’s operating strategies have produced strong internal rates of return to investors.
