About the Author

George Carlson (now conducting business as the Broker & President of Conversion Specialists, Inc., dba CSI, Inc., hereto referred to as “CSI”) has been involved in the conversion of apartments to condominiums since 1992. Properties have ranged from 13 to 264 units per condo conversion project and the average size has been just over 100 units.

He has been a Residential Real Estate Salesman, Residential Real Estate Broker, Brokerage Office Sales Manager, Commercial and Residential Property Manager, Condominium Association Manager, Multi-Family Property Marketing & Leasing Director, and Real Estate Syndicator. He has been a licensed Real Estate Broker in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio.

Mr. Carlson graduated from Valparaiso University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with emphasis on Marketing and Management. He was licensed as an Illinois Real Estate Salesperson 1974 and became an Illinois Real Estate Broker in 1976. From 1975 to 1984, he was a Sales Representative and Office Manager of a family-owned franchised real estate office. In 1984, he sold real estate for RE/MAX.

In 1985, Mr. Carlson purchased his first large property through a real estate syndication. It was a 53-unit apartment project in a suburb of Chicago. At that time, he co-founded a real estate property management company and a real estate investment company. The companies grew with the acquisition of more properties. His duties encompassed overseeing the marketing and management of over 10,000 apartment units in 9 states (in the Midwest United States and in Florida). The average apartment complex was over 250 units. The properties ranged from small apartment buildings to complexes with multiple high-rise structures with underground garage facilities.

In 1992, Mr. Carlson did his first condominium conversion on a 98-unit apartment property. Since then he has performed condo conversions on numerous apartment properties in different states of the Midwest. He has also consulted with developers, helping them with their conversion projects.

CSI, Inc. is currently managing and leasing condominiums and homes for over 100 investors in the Chicagoland area, and focusing on listing and selling residential properties. Further information about CSI can be obtained from the CSI website at “”.
