Since 1978 Alfred Klairmont has directed Imperial Realty’s portfolio to what is now more than 100 properties in the Chicagoland Metropolitan Area having over 6.4 million square feet of commercial real estate. Under his leadership Imperial Realty has grown to become one of Chicago’s Largest Real Estate Firms. With an established reputation of integrity and forward thinking and with a long-term viewpoint, Al is hands-on in the process of finding, buying, rehabbing, leasing, managing and maintaining Imperial’s commercial properties. Most acquisitions were purchased as distressed properties and have been subsequently guided to success through rehabilitation and repositioning to meet the needs of the respective marketplaces. Al directs a staff of 40 professionals which includes legal, architectural, space planning, brokerage, leasing, management and maintenance expertise.
Additionally, in March 2007, Al was inducted into the Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame and in 2015 into The Chicago Association of Realtors Hall of Fame.
