Brenten Blakeman joined Cawley Chicago as a real estate broker with a focus on valuations and financial analysis on the Capital Markets Team with six years of prior experience. He began his career in medical finance before transitioning into valuations. His valuation skillset was honed valuing privately held small and medium sized businesses and real estate holding entities, primarily for management planning as well as gift and estate tax purposes. This background has enabled him the ability to understand the principals of valuations and apply them to the world of commercial real estate for Cawley Chicago.

As a member of the Cawley Chicago team, Mr. Blakeman performs building and portfolio valuations, lease analyses, and financial projections among other things. He strives to help his clients make sound and informed decisions backed by the numbers. He is able to do this by working closely with Cawley’s team of brokers, each with their own submarket specialties.

In addition to his career, Brenten stays active and is an avid golfer who played collegiately at the University of Dayton. He is also the Director for the non-profit A Long Swim, which raises money for ALS research.
