Brad Suster, owner of Luxe Property Management LLC, is a is Chicago real estate developer who has been called the Anti-Demolition Man, as written in the Chicago Reader:
Unlike many developers, Suster doesn't sell most of his landmark-quality properties after renovation. He holds on to them, even if the rents are too low for him to break even, intending to sit on them for ten or twenty years, "if not forever." He strives to maintain the integrity of original features. Miguel Salgado, captain of one of Suster's work crews, has often found himself trying to persuade him of the impossibility of preserving certain damaged vintage elements. Once the two argued about a badly mangled front door. Salgado said it was beyond salvation but Suster wouldn't hear of buying "some new door."
"This is beautiful!" Suster implored. "Please, fix it--whatever it takes."

According to Michael Busch, Burling Bank CEO:
"It’s important to let startups know that there are banks in Chicago that want to encourage what they are doing, and to work with them. A startup may just need a deposit account. They may need a lending facility. They may need introductions to private equity investors. A bank like Burling Bank can provide these introductions and be a valued partner with startups."
