Kirby Pearson has been in the real estate industry for almost 20 years, and is the Founder and Managing Broker of Pearson Realty Group. 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). His company 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 many distressed properties discovering his passion for real estate. In May of 2009, Pearson Realty Group was first established with only a handful of dedicated brokers. In 2013, the company’s REO team ranked 21st in the nation in transactions by sides according to Real Trends The Thousand as published in the Wall Street Journal. This accomplishment set Pearson Realty Group’s team to become first in Chicago for a number of transactions. Today, Pearson Realty Group has achieved the top 1% sales record for high volume transactions in the Chicagoland area for multiple years in a row, and is a full-service real estate brokerage serving Cook County and various surrounding suburbs.
