Commercial Real Estate Broker
Al Coulolias’ nearly 30 years of experience as a business owner – in addition to his knowledge of
commercial real estate – makes him an excellent resource on sales and negotiations for his National
Realty Network clients. His educational background includes a bachelor’s degree from Loyola University.
Al spent the bulk of his business career founding and then leading a telecommunications corporation,
which reached $15 million in annual sales. The operation was ranked in Money Magazine’s “Top 500
Fastest-Growing Companies” in 1985 and 1986. After selling his firm to a publicly held company, Al
became an equity owner in a foodservice company. The intense marketing strategy he helped develop
and implement, allowed this firm to dramatically increase its annual revenues beyond $100 million. This
firm was sold to a Fortune 100 company. Then Al turned his attention to commercial real estate,
becoming a partner in a Chicago real estate venture. This allowed Al to hone his skills in property
management and leasing, plus a number of aspects of real estate investment. In addition, Al joined a
national commercial real estate firm. Here, he successfully represented buyers and sellers in multi-million
dollar transactions. Al is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, the
National Association of Realtors, and the Northern Illinois Commercial Association of Realtors. He holds
an Illinois Real Estate Broker’s License. Al also is a past board member of Holy Apostles Church in
Westchester, Illinois; a fundraiser for The Alzheimer’s Association, The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.
Al is a volunteer for The Feed 6 organization which is a series of meal packaging events that feed hungry
children and their families. He is also a Mason and a Medinah Shriner.
