Clients Testimonials

When my company was expanding nationally, we need to rent office space on many cities around the country.  Ira Perlman from Howard Ecker & Company led our projects and was terrific.  He understood our needs, scoped out the geography, negotiated on our behalf and presented us with good options.  We never could have done it without their help.  It greatly minimized my time required.  When we decided that we needed a larger corporate facility, they were part of the team of our “build to suit” development.  Ira and Howard Ecker always were OUR advocates

Howard Ecker and his team have been trusted advisors of mine for over a decade and through three different companies. No one is better at representing tenants from simple to complex lease situations. The deep relationships that Howard brings to the table ensure that you will always have excellent rent options and favorable lease terms. I highly recommend Howard Ecker and company.

Working with Valentine at Howard Ecker has been a truly wonderful experience. She has consistently negotiated on my business’ behalf at our downtown Chicago flagship location and was immensely helpful with the location search for our suburban satellite office. She is incredibly knowledgeable about rental agreements, market value and attractiveness of location.  I have always believed the well-being of our business is her priority and never doubted her moral integrity. I plan to continue a very long relationship with Valentine and the Howard Ecker firm.
