Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame: Conor Commercial’s Vicki Mutchler

Every year, Midwest Real Estate News inducts a new class into the Midwest Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame. Today we take a look at the busy career of Vicki Mutchler, vice president of capital transactions at Conor Commercial Real Estate in Rosemont, Illinois.

Vicki Mutchler, Vice President, Capital Transactions at Conor Commercial Real Estate, has 20 years of experience managing land acquisition, development and financing in the commercial and residential real estate industries. She has a strong financial background and extensive cash flow modeling and evaluation experience. Work, acquisitions, development and project finance are among her many attributes.

Mutchler manages all of Conor Commercial’s credit and equity partner relationships while overseeing the financing of the company’s new development projects and the refinancing of existing transactions. She also supports the management team in project analysis and strategic decisions and is a member of the company’s investment committee.

“For a speculative developer, some of the biggest challenges in selling commercial real estate are upfront when you’re designing a building and figuring out what features your building should have without knowing the potential future tenant and buyer needs,” said Mutchler. “It is important to make a building as versatile as possible in order to attract the most tenants and buyer pools.”

Mutchler received her Masters in Real Estate Development from the University of Southern California, followed by a Bachelor of Business Administration in Real Estate and Marketing from the University of Wisconsin. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Goldie B. Wolfe Initiative for Women in Leadership and a founding member of the Building Industry Association’s Next Generation Group.

Mutchler is also a member of the National Association for Industrial and Office Real Estate (NAIOP), the Urban Land Institute (ULI), the Real Estate Finance Forum (REFF), the Industrial Women in Real Estate (IWIRE) and the US Green Building Council. She enjoys spending time with her family outside of the office, watching her son and daughter play sports, and traveling as a family.
