Josh “JK” Kalinowski

CEO & Fearless Leader. Achiever.

Always summer-ready.

Josh, “JK” leads our family through the ups and downs and empowers our leaders to build each of the companies. Josh began our firm because he knew there had to be a better way to do real estate than what he experienced as an agent. Josh created The Legacy Group: a company focused on helping agents succeed in order to leave a lasting impact. So get ready to be pushed and challenged to level up because Josh is an expert in doing hard shit on purpose and loving it (Icebaths, 75 Hard, Spartan races, you name it!). Every Tuesday, experience the most motivational moment of your week with a fresh “Josh talk” to close out our office meeting. Josh is always finding new ways to challenge us to reach new levels of success in our business, relationships and fitness. Although Josh is a pretty busy guy - most of the day you’ll see him in the halls, on a Zoom call or in a meeting - he always makes time to help you out when you need it. Josh will invest in you and challenge you to believe in your worth and ability to succeed and go after what you want in life.
