With more than 350 investment sales transactions to his record since joining Marcus & Millichap, Eric Bell ranks as one of the most successful multi-family specialists not only in the Midwest but in the entire country.

As a senior vice president of investments at Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, Bell has consistently proven the importance of market smarts, hard work and an unwavering commitment to clients. There is no secret formula for success here. But Bell's strategy of doing everything possible to close the best deals for his clients has paid off.

Today, Bell enjoys fierce loyalty from his clients. This loyalty has served him well, allowing Bell to rank as a top producer consistently during a career that has spanned 25 years.

At the same time, Bell is committed to his industry. His peers say that he regularly takes time to mentor the younger agents at Marcus & Millichap, teaching them, too, the benefits of hard work and an in-depth study of markets. The results of this teaching are clear; many of the young agents tutored by Bell have gone to notch their own successful careers in commercial real estate.

As one nominator said, "Eric believes in teaching fundamental skills, hard work and commitment to excellence."

This same path to success has made Bell a key player at Marcus & Millichap. Besides helping lead the Chicago office to several impressive sales milestones, Bell has earned more than his share of prestigious honors. Marcus & Millichap officials have recognized him as one of the Top 10 investment professionals in the firm. And Bell has earned numerous sales recognition awards during his career, including the coveted Chairman's Circle of Excellence award. Bell has also won five Chairman's Club awards and 11 National Achievement Awards during his time at Marcus & Millichap.

"Few, if any, can match Eric's track record of helping his clients accomplish their real estate goals," said one nominator. "He is one of the most accomplished multi-family specialists in the entire Midwest."
