How Kale Realty got started:



In 1951, Sol Kale grew a fledging uniform company into one of the largest suppliers of Police, Postal and Fire department uniforms in the country- he even supplied the uniforms for a couple famous Chicago movies including Backdraft and the Blue’s Brothers. Sol went on to found his family-run real estate company which continues to thrive today as Kale Realty. tailorshop Kale which is short for the old family name, Kaluzna, has long roots in the South Loop neighborhood. A Kale has been on Roosevelt and Jefferson since 1921 and in 2007 the city honored Sol by naming the street after him. De Koven/Jefferson for Chicago History buffs is the famous past location of Ms. O’Leary’s farm where many say was the start of the great Chicago fire in 1871. Currently it’s the site of the Chicago Fire Academy right behind the Kale Realty office.
