Pro-Israel Real Estate Broker, Who Sells Condos in Trump Tower, Arrested at Chicago Rally for Carrying Gun

The Chicago chapter of the pro-Israel group, StandWithUs, organized a rally on July 22 to show support for the country’s military assault on Gaza. During the rally, a man was arrested by Chicago police for carrying a gun at the demonstration.

Up until now, the man has been identified in the local press. His name is Andrew Glatz. He is 37-years-old and lives in Lincolnwood, IL. However, it has not been reported that he was with the people who were rallying for Israel.

Officer Thomas Sweeney of the Chicago Police Department’s Media Affairs Office indicated that Glatz was arrested around 3 pm and charged with a misdemeanor. He had a conceal/carry permit for his weapon, however, under state law, Glatz is prohibited from having his gun at a public gathering open to the public.

Here is Glatz being arrested:

Glatz is the president of Crown Heights Realty. He boasts in his own public LinkedIn profile that he is a “top producing real estate deal maker” and has “personally been involved in the sale or re-sale of more than 770 condominium units or homes totaling in excess of $400 million dollars.” His sales have been made in upper-class neighborhoods of downtown Chicago like River North, Streeterville and the Gold Coast. And Glatz claims to have sold “more condo hotel units at Trump International Tower than any other broker or brokerage firm.”

He sold NBA basketball player Derrick Rose his “$2.7 million bachelor pad” on the 84th floor of the Trump International Tower.

But Glatz also associates himself with the America-Israel Chamber of Commerce in Chicago. In November 2013, he went on Jewish United Fund—sponsored “mission” to Israel.
