As a licensed Illinois Real Estate Broker and a member of the Illinois Bar Association, Kyle works on commercial and residential projects. He can examine opportunities efficiently as a lawyer and as a real estate broker utilizing both skills simultaneously. He began his real estate career as a lawyer in 2010, providing legal services to clients experiencing hardship caused by the real estate collapse. As Kyle built his practice he became an expert in drafting, negotiating, and reviewing complex real estate documents and transactions in and out of court.
In 2013 Kyle started a hospitality group located in Illinois which he sold to the venture capital group Sterling Bay in 2016 at a significant profit. After the sale Kyle became a vested managing partner and Co-General Counsel at Atly’s Group, a private equity group out of Chicago. Atly’s Group became very successful in the disaster relief space and Kyle exited the group in 2020 at a high multiple. In 2019 Kyle became a founding partner of Perfect Balance Investments. The group focuses on consulting and investing in start-up companies. The strategy is to find companies who have found a problem that needs to be solved and have a proven path to solve that problem better than others. Kyle prefers to take an active role to help introduce companies to strategic resources to improve the business, grow revenue, and prepare the company to acquire new companies, sell, or merge.
Kyle believes that the best opportunities present themselves in a down economy. He understands that interest rates will continue to rise and the true opportunities will be presented to cash buyers who can move without entanglements and with swift decisive action.
