With nearly two decades of proven success under their belt the father-son duo Jim MACK McClelland and James MACK McClelland founders entrepreneurs and real estate developers couldnt have imagined that a small Ma Pa operation consisting of a little over twenty employees would become pioneers in the real estate industry and grow into the innovative full family of real estate divisions that it is today. These independently run divisions cover all major aspects of real estate and are comprised of residential commercial new construction landscape and real estate investments. Situated in a Chicago-land suburb just about twenty minutes south of downtown MACK Companies is one of the most sought after real estate firms in the United States. We are comprised of smart talented industry professionals who share one common goal Raising the Quality of Life. This simple principle of leaving people and things in better condition than as originally found has paved the foundation and made way for MACK Companies to grow to an organization that continually proves to be a leader in the industry. The MACK Companies brand culture and values express what the company is as a whole. It is a culmination of what people see feel and hear with each business transaction. The company exercises the following five core values B R A N D C U L T U R E V A L U E S Knowledgeable Dynamic Caring Dedicated Humble COMPANY VALUES02 Cloud Gate Millennium Park Chicago IL. THE MACK EXPERIENCE03 MACK Investments is an integral division of MACK Companies that provides turn-key residential real estate investments to individual and institutional clients worldwide.

I N V ES T I N G SMART Real estate is the perfect investment to round out a diverse portfolio. It offers advantages many traditional investments cannot and includes several qualities that can enhance the return of a stronger portfolio. Every investor knows the value of having a solid portfolio and single-family rentals provide a long- term investment for people who want to expand their holdings. Whether you want to increase the number of assets you currently own or are wondering if an SFR is the right investment for you consider these four factors An investment you can leverage your way into An investment that appreciates with time An investment that provides monthly cash flow They fit into any investment strategy Your principal is safe Rental properties provide tax breaks SFR investing can be a simple process BENEFITS04 Choosing to partner with a turn-key provider grants our clients the opportunity to invest in real estate passively and to do so with experts who can advise and provide the best industry services. Whether its a portfolio of 10 or 100 homes real estate managed by professionals saves investors countless hours in the acquisition redevelopment and daily maintenance required to sustain quality investment properties. Understanding Your Goals Two major factors contribute to earning returns on a rental property Cash Flow and Appreciation. Investing for cash flow is built on solid fundamentals and represents the income you collect each month from the property over a short period of time. Investing for appreciation can pay significantly higher returns on your income but over a longer period of time. Investors can choose either situation based on their goals. We offer a hybrid model allowing our clients an opportunity to invest either way a formula that is not made possible by everyone. UNLIKE COMMERCIAL PROPERTY INVESTMENTS In an emerging digital world people remain in homes telecommuting Monthly income relies on occupancy not business success Turn-key models allow entry for first time investors UNLIKE MULTI-FAMILY INVESTMENTS A large pool of buyers exists for single-family homes Single-family is easier to finance Single-family residents stay 2.7 times longer than multi-family UNLIKE PURCHASING SHARES OF A REIT Decisions and control of the assets are yours alone 100 cash purchase is not mandatory Leveraged financing enables higher returns A downtown view of the Chicago River from the Michigan Avenue Bridge.
