Commercial Real Estate Financing

First Midwest Bank’s Commercial Real Estate Group (CREG)  is committed to providing high quality financing solutions1 to the Chicago marketplace. Unlike other local financial institutions, First Midwest takes a long-term view of commercial real estate lending. That is why we have continuously been an active lender, even during economic downturns. Our team of experienced and dedicated professionals knows what it takes to get your deal done.

  • We are accessible and accountable, providing you with one point of contact throughout the loan process; from application to approval to closing and beyond.
  • We are consistent and reliable, delivering what we promise with certainty of execution.  
  • We are streamlined and efficient, handling all underwriting and portfolio management in-house. What’s more, all of our credit decisions are made locally by people who understand the marketplace.
  • We take your deadlines seriously and adhere to all time constraints. If we cannot provide the type of solution you require, we will inform you early in the process. We value your time as we do our own.

Our Relationship Managers average more than 20 years of experience in commercial Real Estate Financing. We serve our clients anywhere within First Midwest's expanding footprint - which currently includes:

  • Chicago metropolitan area
