Kevin Rutherford moved to Chicago from Montreal, Canada in 1989 with a degree in Finance from Concordia University in Quebec. A Wilmette resident for over 19 years, Kevin has unique insight into the North Shore schools, especially New Trier High School, where all 3 of his children have graduated.

In his first year in Real Estate, he earned the coveted "Rookie of the Year" distinction, and since then has been among the top 2% of all agents company-wide.  As of 2017, he ranked 35th company-wide, with over 2400 agents.

For over twenty years, Kevin’s career flourished in the financial industry. He worked as a Currency Broker and Equity Trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. During that time, he became an expert negotiator to secure the best price for major investment dealers, hedge funds, banks and proprietary trading groups in foreign currency and equity futures and options. As a proven operations and relationship management leader, his financial prowess and expert negotiation skills transfer perfectly into the Real Estate market. He is a versatile professional who performs optimally in ever-changing, fast-paced environments.

Kevin is deeply involved in the North Shore communities. He coached Park District soccer for ten years and hockey for seven years. He  organizes numerous local poker and golf tournaments, including one to benefit the Wilmette Warming House, a safe environment for teens.

Kevin has an innate ability to put his clients at ease throughout the entire Real Estate process and beyond.  When working with Kevin one has the sense that he puts his clients first, always gaining their trust and confidence and has a track record to prove it!

He works extensively with North Shore builders, from finding new development opportunities to selling the finished property.

"Kevin helped us with the sale of a home in Skokie in 2017 where my parents had lived since 1999. He was very patient in a difficult situation. Yet he was also proactive, had resources for potential home improvements before listing, and was always available. We listed the home on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (the delays due to our inability to have the home ready before that time), and we closed on a sale before the end of January. I recommend Kevin and would gladly use him again."

"Very professional and knowledgeable about local area that he is serving. After the condo was sold, he thanked us for the business and took our family out to dinner. Very thoughtful and easy to recommend."

"We moved to Illinois by the end of 2017. We contacted Kevin about two months prior to the move and he gave us a great selection of properties from where we selected those that best fitted our needs. He gave us a great advice to find our place. He showed us the properties and carefully responded to our concerns regarding the amenities of the properties and the services, schools, and parks in the neighborhood. He helped us to negotiate the best conditions. Once we picked the property we made the lease in one day. Kevin is very professional but, above all, he is honest and kind.

"Kevin did a fantastic job for us, especially considering we were moving to the area from out of state. He was very responsive to answer questions quickly and set up multiple viewing appointments on short notice. It was particularly useful to have him offer to do tours of properties over facetime on his cell phone while walking through homes. This helped us make a very focused short list and maximize the limited time we had for in-person visits to the area. In the end we are thrilled with the home he helped us find and we highly recommend him with no reservations!"
