Michael Pierson is the ultimate Chicago real estate success story. In two decades, his tireless work has led him to his current position as President of BHHS KoenigRubloff Realty Group, one of America’s top real estate companies. Michael Pierson began his career at Arthur Andersen & Company upon graduating from Purdue University. He then moved to IBM Corporation where he began a successful sales career. Upon entering real estate in 1985, he quickly became a top producer and soon became Broker/Owner of the prestigious and successful, Seery & Keim Realtors, which was acquired by GMAC in 2000. As Senior Vice President and Gold Coast Branch Manager of Koenig & Strey's Gold Coast office, he led the office growth to over $1 billion in annual sales, ranking them 2nd nationally in closed volume and Gross Commission Income (GCI). He was highly instrumental in securing the firm’s exclusive marketing agreement to represent one of Chicago's most prestigious buildings, 401 N Wabash.
In 2005, Pierson was named Executive Vice President and General Sales Manager of Koenig & Strey, overseeing 17 locations and all branch office operations. In 2006, Pierson was named the MVP nationally at GMAC Real Estate. Pierson and Chris Eigel acquired Prudential Preferred Properties in 2007 and then successfully acquired the prestigious Rubloff firm in September of 2009. Pierson was hugely instrumental as President and Chairman, leading Prudential Rulboff to one of the top 35 firms nationally in the Real Trends Power Broker report. In 2013, Prudential Rubloff was acquired by HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate. That same year, Pierson was honored in the “Swanepoel Power 200”, an exclusive list showcasing the nation’s most powerful people in real estate.
Then in April of 2014, the legendary firms of Rubloff and Koenig & Strey were merged to form Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group. Pierson currently serves as President of the Chicago area powerhouse with nearly 1500 agents and staff and approximately $3.5 billion in annual sales and thousands of closed units. Michael enjoys his time with his two successful daughters Meghan and Meredith and his partner Kevin. He is an avid tennis player and reader. He is a huge fan of modern architecture.
