Steven L. Joseph

President/CEO

in

Steve has been representing tenants on an exclusive basis since 1987.  Throughout his career, he has completed transactions valued at over seven billion dollars.  For multiple years, Steve was one of the top producers nationally for the Trammell Crow Company, and the top producer in Chicago.  After being a principal with Trammell Crow for many years, Steve realized how big of a conflict of interest the national real estate firms have in the marketplace.  In 1998, Steve left Trammell Crow to start Gibraltar, a full service, conflict-free real estate advisory firm strictly dedicated to representing tenants.  Because Gibraltar does not represent landlords, or manage properties, Steve is able to avoid any potential for conflicts when representing his clients both locally and throughout the U.S.
