Our Company | Kunkel Commercial Group

Relationships before profits.

It’s a simple philosophy. Our neighbors become our clients and our clients become our friends. Serving your best interests is what drives us. We know that if you’re happy with our service, you’ll tell your friends and colleagues and our business will continue to grow and flourish.


Growing up in Highland, Illinois, Dave Kunkel learned firsthand the true meaning of Midwestern values – where hard work is appreciated, your word is your bond, and a handshake is your contract.  After graduating from SIU-Carbondale in the mid ‘80’s, Dave began his career in the commercial real estate industry. After learning all aspects of the business, he was ready to start his own company in 2007, Kunkel Commercial Group.

Like many entrepreneurs, Dave believed there was a better way. So he made a commitment to create a firm where he could truly help his clients. A firm where relationships are put in front of profits, and clients are treated as individuals, not property addresses. While commercial deals can be extremely complex and time-consuming, Dave and his team will be your advocate and guide you through the process every step of the way.

As word spread about KCG’s client-centered approach, more and more building owners and those looking to buy or lease property turn to Dave and his team of professionals. Today, KCG’s portfolio consists of a wide variety of properties, including office, medical, retail, industrial (including self-storage facilities) and land.

The KCG team is poised to be your local, independent commercial real estate partner. No one knows the Metro East commercial real estate market better.
