Working in commercial real estate since 1994. Launched The Modal Group in 2008, merged with Taurus in 2015. Previous brokerage position was with CB Richard Ellis (CBRE), where I was the dominant broker in the northwest/O'Hare sub-market of Chicago. That led to a position with First Industrial Realty Trust on the global acquisitions team to feed First’s $9 Billion of REIT and pension fund capital. Enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys at our home near Wrigley Field in Chicago. I serve on the board of the Cotter Club Boys & Girls Club and Executive Board at Emanuel Congregation. Passionate about boating, golfing, biking, exercising, taking long road trips and the rooting for Chicago sports teams.
Daniel has been working in commercial real estate since 1994. His successful experience at some of the largest real estate firms in the world coupled with a personal desire to stake his claim fueled him to launch The Modal Group in 2008. In 2015 he merged with Taurus Realty creating Taurus Modal Group. Smolensky has completed transactions in excess of $300 million and 10 million square feet in industrial properties and office projects. Daniel's previous brokerage position was with CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) where he enjoyed being the dominant broker in the northwest/O'Hare sub-market of Chicago. That led to a position with First Industrial Realty Trust one the world's largest owners/developers of industrial properties where Dan was charged with identifying buildings to purchase and executing transactions to feed the company’s $9 Billion of REIT and pension fund capital. He considered opportunities in every major market in the US, Canada and Europe. Smolensky lives near Wrigley Field in Chicago and enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys, boating, golfing, taking road trips and the rooting for Chicago sports teams.
