Description

The real estate business was in the doldrums in 2008 when retail broker Sims left a large local firm (United Properties) to hang out a single for the local office of Mid-America Real Estate Group, based in suburban Chicago. He started on his own, but today that local office has 30 employees, including 10 brokers. Mid-America Real Estate-Minnesota now manages and leases 6.7 million square feet of retail real estate in Minnesota and represents dozens of national and regional tenants.
