President & Managing Broker
T.J. Rubin is the founder and Managing Broker of Fulton Grace Realty. In a few short years, T.J. has grown Fulton Grace Realty from a one-man apartment rental service into one of the most well-respected and fastest growing residential real estate firms in Chicago.
After graduating from Vanderbilt Law School in 2005 and practicing law for three years, T.J. lost his job during the economic downturn. With nothing to lose, little real estate background and a burning desire to succeed, T.J. decided to start a business helping landlords fill their vacancies. After many sleepless nights, T.J. earned his first check and was officially reborn as a real estate entrepreneur and Managing Broker of Fulton Grace Realty.
T.J. orchestrated the company's moves from his living room to now two spacious and modern offices, one in Lakeview and one in West Town, that he designed and developed. A third Fulton Grace location is scheduled to open in North Center in mid-2017! Fulton Grace's consistent and astounding growth landed it on the Inc. 5000 list in both 2015 and 2016 where it is recognized as one of America's fastest growing companies.
Under T.J.'s leadership, Fulton Grace's brokerage division successfully completes thousands of real estate transactions each year. Its property management division currently oversees the management of well over 1,200 residential units throughout Chicago (and growing each month). As Managing Broker of Fulton Grace Realty, T.J. has been featured on NBC Chicago, AM 560 The Answer, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Agent Magazine and various other local and national periodicals as an expert in Chicago residential real estate. T.J. has been consistently recognized by the Chicago Association of Realtors as a "Top Producer" in residential sales and leasing.
