Tariq “TK” Khwaja is a 20-year veteran of the mortgage industry, holding top sales and management positions. After years of experience, TK believes he has found the best home possible for himself with Paramount Bank, a lender that allows him to provide the best financing options on the market with minimal to zero overlays that would prevent clients from obtaining the same financing with other banks.

TK has received numerous accolades, such as:

  • Chicago Agent Magazine in their “Who’s Who of Chicago Real Estate” lists from 2013 to 2021
  • 5 Star Professional awards from 2014 to 2018
  • Chicago Agent Magazine “Lender of the Year” nominations in both 2014 & 2015
  • CS Modern Luxury Magazine’s Real Estate Visionaries 2016 & 2017
  • Chicago Agent Magazine’s Loan Officer Of The year nomination 2017
  • Chicago “Power Players” in Michigan Ave Magazine for business /charitable ventures in 2018 & 2019
  • CS Modern Luxury “Top Luxury Real Estate Industry Leaders” 2022

He is seen as an integral member of the Chicago Real Estate community and believes his passion for real estate sets him apart from other lenders. He has been speaking at the Chicago Association of Realtors YPN Breakfast since 2017 and most recently helped write the “Lender Sound Off” in Chicago Realtor magazine in the fall of 2020 issue which was sent to all 15k + members of the association. On top of this list of accomplishments, Tariq is a founding board member of a 501c3 in Chicago dedicated to improving the lives of hospitalized children through toy drives and fundraising events. He is also a donor to organizations including the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Ronald McDonald House.

About Pearson Realty Group

In 2009, Pearson Realty Group was first established with only a handful of dedicated brokers. Today, Pearson Realty Group has expanded to a full-service brokerage that has climbed the ranks to one of the most successful Chicagoland real estate brokerages, and home to a team of over 80 reliable and accomplished real estate brokers, distinguished property managers, and incredible support staff. Our ever-growing brokerage is constantly challenging the market through the use of innovative technology, strategic marketing tactics, construction experience, and exceptional customer service.

From 2010 - 2020 Pearson Realty Group completed over 2600 transactions resulting in a total transaction volume of $500 million. We have steadily increased our market share every year since we've started our business, leading to high exposure through online marketing, advertising, signage, direct mail, and email campaigns.

What does this mean for your home? More exposure leads to higher page views, an increase in showing requests and a shorter market time for your home.

Additionally, over the past 3 years Pearson saw a 59% increase in brokers, 72% increase in management business, and has grown 85% in administrative support. Our growing team has propelled us forward in the industry, allowing us to close more deals efficiently and successfully.

The founder’s of Pearson Realty Group include Kirby, Austin, and Parker Pearson who all began their careers at the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, The Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT/CME). During this period, Kirby built one of the most successful treasury commodity brokerage firms in the Chicagoland area owning seats on the CBOT and doing business for the majority of large brokerage firms, banks, and hedge funds in the area. After building a thriving firm, they decided to expand their business in the real estate industry.

In 2009, Kirby joined his two sons, Parker and Austin Pearson to form what today is known as, Pearson Realty Group. They moved from the Chicago Board Trade to its current location in Noble Square. Since the start, the Pearson's have offered a variety of services including investment property management services, homeowner association management services, and Noble Title Insurance Agency. Additionally, they sit on the board of a 501c3 non-for-profit Benevolent Housing Association and have completed various developments such as multi-family and commercial property investments. Today, Pearson Realty Group is an award-winning full-service real estate brokerage serving Cook County and various surrounding suburbs.
