Antje Gehrken is the President and Managing Broker of A.R.E Partners, a boutique brokerage that developed the MACH3 (M3) approach to real estate. With over 17 years of experience representing investors, home owners, lenders, and property owners, she takes a hands-on approach with the operations of A.R.E. and creates a go-to market strategy specific to each client.
In 2016, Ms. Gehrken was designated as a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), which recognizes her as an expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. The process to obtain this appointment--which includes extensive coursework, a portfolio of approved commercial transactions, and a 6 hour final exam--seeks to ensure that its designees are proficient in their field not only in theory, but also in practice. There are over 150,000 commercial real estate professionals in the U.S.; of these, only about 6 percent hold a CCIM designation.
The designation is another notch in Ms. Gehrken's belt: In 2015, she was appointed to the Chicago Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors, where she holds a position through the 2017-18 term. She was hand selected to be on its exclusive Executive Committee for 2016-17 as well as serve as Chair of its Professional Development Advisory Group. Ms. Gehrken also serves as a Trustee of the Board for the CAR Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the association. She also served as a Mentor for the Goldie B. Wolfe Miller Women Leaders in Commercial Real Estate Initiative. In 2014, she was named as the Women's Council of Realtors' Entrepreneur of the Year.
An expert in the valuation and disposition of bank-owned and distressed properties, Ms. Gehrken counts many institutional clients as her base and has developed A.R.E. Partners to become a preferred vendor for the City of Chicago's Troubled Buildings Initiative. She is also a court appointed Receiver.
After representing investors, home buyers and sellers, developers, property owners, institutional clients, as well as the courts in Northern and Central Illinois, Ms. Gehrken became licensed to expand A.R.E. Partners into Indiana. With an office in Highland, IN, A.R.E. Partners celebrates significant growth in the real estate market and continued representation of clients who are investing, buying, and selling in Indiana as they consider many factors including a lower cost of living and lower taxes.
Born and raised in Chicago, Antje lives a work hard play hard life and, when not providing real estate services to her clients or guidance to ARE's team members and other members of the real estate community, enjoys tennis, reading, being outside on warm days, new challenges, and spending time with her family.
