Broker/Owner and Founder of Pearson Realty Group, Kirby Pearson, grew up in the construction/real estate business.
After graduating with a Finance degree from the University of Wisconsin, he built a successful commodity brokerage firm owning seats on the Chicago Board of Trade CME. KGP Inc. was one of the largest treasury futures brokers at the Chicago Board of Trade doing business for the majority of large brokerage firms, banks and hedge funds. During this period Mr. Pearson bought and sold distressed properties.
In late May 2009, Pearson Realty Group moved from the Chicago Board of Trade CME to its current location. Now, Pearson Realty Group is a full service real estate brokerage firm serving Cook County and various surrounding suburbs.
Pearson Realty Group has since become one of the most innovative and technically advanced real estate brokerages in Chicago. In 2013, the REO team ranked 21st in the nation in transactions by sides by Real Trends The Thousand as published in the Wall Street Journal. This accomplishment set Pearson Group’s team first in Chicago for number of transactions.
