Accomplish the Impossible

Clients retain Hilco Real Estate for our knowledge, experience, and track record of success maximizing value and minimizing costs. These clients own or lease a wide variety of assets – retail, restaurant, and grocery; office space; and warehouse, manufacturing, and industrial.

While it is true we have become well known in the industry for successfully working on a number of very distressed cases, in fact the vast majority of our work is for healthy clients or mildly stressed companies.


“The job you performed was extremely complex, requiring all parties to agree, with no other options. The process took time and patience. You demonstrated an incredible skill to be able to communicate and keep an open dialogue. Your unwavering dedication through this difficult process gave me the confidence that you could get this job done, which all of my advisors said was an impossible task. Well, you accomplished the impossible and in my view saved our company. For that I am forever grateful.” 

– Douglas G. Reuhl, President and CEO, American TV & Appliance of Madison, Inc.

Heartland Food 

“Hilco Real Estate was an invaluable resource during the restructuring and acquisition process. Hilco operates with deep knowledge of real estate and restaurant operations. They worked so efficiently and effectively with our real estate team that they became an extension of our company. With their guidance and teamwork, Hilco saved us millions of dollars, and I would not hesitate to use them again.”

– Joel Aaseby, CFO, Heartland Food LLC

The Dolan Company

"Hilco Real Estate and their deal managers have made an incredible difference for our company. As a collection of local operations in cities across the nation, our leased office spaces were sometimes too large or overpriced. During a reorganization of our company, Hilco worked with landlords and our management team to revamp these leases to reflect our current needs, saving us a large amount in the process. I highly recommend Hilco; they get the job done.”
