Eric Garrett


As Founder and President of The Garrett Companies, Eric Garrett directs the strategic planning, growth and profitability of the Company. Eric began his career in the 1990’s as a broker for Marcus and Millichap (M&M) in Chicago selling multifamily projects around the Midwest. Eric was the company’s Rookie of the Year and had immediate success averaging over $100 million per year in sales. Eric learned two invaluable lessons from his time at M&M. First, he learned the importance of site selection and understanding what makes a strong site from a mediocre site. Second, he learned the importance of solid underwriting during the development process.
