About Us

Industrial Commercial Realty and Investment Corporation is an Illinois licensed Real Estate Broker. It was founded by John Schutzius to provide commercial brokerage services to owners, tenants and investors of industrial, commercial, or investment properties in the western suburbs of Chicago, the Fox Valley, and North-central Illinois.

We are unique in that we use face-to-face marketing, maintaining the personal touch while also utilizing technology to market properties or identify prospective sites. There is no substitute for personal contact with our clients, prospective clients, fellow brokers, economic development corporation staff, appraisers, lenders, and others involved in the commercial real estate marketplace.

We also employ comprehensive research methods to identify every property in a given market with similar characteristics. We track the ownership, tenants, and current status of those properties. We believe this gives us an advantage in serving our clients' needs.

Call us today to discuss ways to maximize the value of your property, find a new location for your business, or identify investment real estate.
