Mr. Emil Cherkasov
Principal Broker / Founder

When I was 10 years old my family immigrated to Michigan from the former Soviet Union. When we arrived, we had only $500, a few material possessions, and did not speak English. Knowing first-hand the sacrifices my parents made and the challenges they overcame is a continuous source of inspiration to me.

Working in commercial real estate gives me the opportunity to help others pursue their "American Dream" - whether it's finding the best space for a tenant to grow their business, representing a client's real estate portfolio, or maximizing an investment property. My history, passion for helping others, and specialized service in local commercial real estate gives me an edge in a very demanding, fast-paced industry.

I invite you to meet with me personally, discuss your business goals, share your history and allow Forward Commercial Group to be your brokerage of choice.
