Commercial Division

Janko Realty & Development, operating since 1980, is extensively involved throughout central Illinois in the acquisitions, management and brokerage of commercial/industrial property.

Janko Realty and its affiliated companies are developing three industrial parks with over 400 acres in the Illinois Valley. Janko Realty is a member of the Commercial/Industrial Multiple Listing Service, which covers all of northern Illinois and the Northern Illinois Commercial Association of Realtors. In 1995, Janko purchased four commercial/industrial buildings in the suburbs of Schaumburg, Elk Grove Village, Lake Forest and Bedford Park. The Janko Company plans to continue progressive purchases of industrial buildings as investments.

Janko Realty became an independent in 1995 as the company evolved into more commercial/industrial sales and leasing. The strategy has worked well as many companies are looking to move into rural areas.
