About Brian Maude With over 28 years of experience working in the real estate industry, Brian brings a multitude of skills developed on the front lines to ensure the best possible outcome for his clients. Starting out selling residential real estate in a small boutique real estate office in downtown Barrington he went on to design, build and sell a variety of homes in the area. He was later invited to join the family construction company where he moved up the ladder to become vice president of construction. This is where he learned the importance of putting the customer's interests first. He was told "if you look out for your clients best interests you will always have work". His ability to bring in projects on time and within budget always kept him busy. This attention to detail and focus lead to commercial real estate development where he learned to contract, design, develop, market, negotiate and sell $98,000,000 in commercial real estate properties. He successfully negotiated deals with top corporate real estate managers at Walgreens, Mobil Oil, Shell Oil, Thornton Oil, Good Will Industries, ALDI, McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, Indeck Industries and others. His many years of successfully rezoning and developing commercial properties in multiple states has sharpened his negotiating skills and developed an ability to overcome whatever obstacles were thrown in his path. Let Brian's 28 years of analyzing, negotiating, and project management skills coupled with Sotheby's International Realty's exceptional marketing platform successfully guide you through the twists and turns of today's real estate market.
