At age 16 Kevin started working as an apprentice for his father's custom home building company, Rynes Development of Lake Forest. Kevin worked as a general contractor for 10 years, perfecting the extensive process of building million dollar luxury homes along the North Shore and Lake Geneva area. He oversaw the project from start to finish, from finding the vacant land and staking it out, to obtaining the certificate of occupancy and helping the clients move in! Kevin worked side by side with the contractors, trades, inspectors, and villages to insure the final product exceeded every client's expectation. These invaluable years of hands on experience provide him with an unique, in depth of knowledge of home construction and design.
After deciding to branch out from his father's company, he joined a small boutique brokerage in Chicago. Here he focused on rentals, multifamily housing, and investment properties, even rehabbing some of them himself. He formed strong relationships with investors, as he was able to guide them in purchasing properties that would offer long term returns. Following the market trend at the time, he dove into the foreclosure and short sale market. Kevin broke office records in this niche due to his tireless work ethic and drive. He gained an in depth understanding of finance, lending, and the secondary market all while meeting the diverse range of client needs and price points.
Kevin is proud to be an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group, a nationally recognized, award winning brokerage. Both buyers and sellers benefit from his extensive knowledge and background merged with KoenigRubloff's maximum market exposure and cutting edge resources. Kevin grew up in Lake Forest and graduated from Loyola Academy. He went on to Barat College where he focused on Business Marketing. Kevin lives on the North Shore with his wife, daughter, two sons, and two dogs. In his free time, Kevin enjoys coaching lacrosse at his alma mater.
