CHICAGO (April 5, 2024) – Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty proudly announces the affiliation of Brian Blackmore, a seasoned veteran in the commercial real estate industry. Blackmore brings over 30 years of expertise to Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty, with a specialization in land sales and land development consulting. He will be instrumental in driving the growth of The Blackmore Group alongside his partner, Sandra True, focusing on both residential and commercial real estate in the Chicagoland market.


Blackmore will be serving his clients from the Coldwell Banker office located at 6400 N. Northwest Hwy. in Chicago. He and his team provide expert consultation to residential and commercial developers, guiding them through all phases of the development process to yield exceptional results.


Blackmore said, "I’m happy to share that I’m rejoining my Partner, Sandra True, at Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty to expand The Blackmore Group. We are looking to add both residential and commercial agents to our team. After nine incredible years, it's time for me to bid farewell to Caton Commercial and move on to the next exciting chapter of my career.”


Dan Spiegel, vice president of Coldwell Banker Commercial, welcomed Brian's addition to the team, remarking, "We are thrilled to have Brian Blackmore join Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty. His extensive experience and proven track record in commercial real estate, particularly in land sales and development, will undoubtedly elevate our services in the Chicagoland market."


Blackmore's illustrious career spans various roles, including his tenure as the founder and principal of Blackmore Land Development Services (BuiLDS), where he provides expert consultancy in land development and construction management. He also serves as senior vice president of development services at New Path Construction and Consulting, offering vertical construction services and helping clients transform their visions into reality. Blackmore's dedication to his craft and his commitment to excellence earned him recognition as Caton Commercial's top broker from 2019 to 2023. He served as senior vice president of Caton for more than eight years. Blackmore was previously affiliated with Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty from 2011-2015.


"There is a shortage of small industrial buildings in the Chicago market and elsewhere. I don't let that challenge stand in the way of helping my clients fulfill their visions. I offer them a full-service collaboration, finding a piece of land on which to build, guiding them through zoning and financing, and helping them put the whole development together," said Blackmore. "With Coldwell Banker, I now have access to an established worldwide network that will greatly enhance the service I offer my clients.”


Blackmore is a graduate of Purdue University Northwest, holding a degree in construction technology. He is a licensed real estate broker in Illinois but has arranged deals in more than 10 states. Blackmore is a tireless researcher who understands all aspects of the land deal (both on- and off-market) and how builders value land assets. He excels at the disposition of residential and commercial land deals, creating additional value through the renegotiation of permit fees and communicating outcomes clearly. By virtue of his negotiation power, and unique industry position, Blackmore

is able to maximize asset value while passing cost savings on to his clients.


Prior to affiliating with Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty, True worked with Blackmore at Caton Commercial for five years. A former telecommunications system engineer, True holds 63 U.S. patents. She brings her knack for innovation to the real estate industry, offering new and creative approaches to business development and client support.
