CHICAGO—Kinzie Real Estate Group just turned five this month, and its history has illustrated the recovery and growth in the region’s real estate market. The Chicago-based firm started out specializing in servicing distressed real estate, a good business in 2011, and by the end of that first year, Kinzie had grown to just under 20 employees. But these days it helps launch and build new luxury multifamily developments, among other projects, and now has more than 50 employees across three divisions and over $100 million dollars in construction activity slated to start this year.
