Commercial Real Estate


At Wintrust, we work to provide our commercial real estate clients with advanced financial solutions. As a locally-based company, Chicago is our specialty. We’re proud of our local roots; it's what allows us to have a true understanding of what our clients in the area need. But, we also know it's not just about loans. Our team focuses on customer relationships and provides an exceptional level of client service.

Our experts know your business and understand your needs. We have a significant capital commitment in construction and engineering, so we’ve built a team of experienced construction and engineering professionals to tackle the needs of the industry. We support you from initial planning to loan approval, closing and servicing. Whether you’re building new, acquiring, renovating or refinancing, we're here to help. 


We offer a variety of commercial real estate lending solutions including commercial mortgages and construction loans. We finance value-add projects, rehab and repositioning loans, construction loans, bridge loans and permanent loans. Our team can help with buying or refinancing commercial buildings, as well as financing upcoming construction projects. We offer flexible financing and provide various length term loans.


Wintrust Commercial Real Estate offers 1031 exchanges to help clients protect and manage property. Often when property is sold, tax will be owed on the gain. If an individual plans to use the proceeds from the business or investment property sale to buy a similar type of property, a 1031 exchange offers tax savings for the next real estate investment.
