Kerry Kidwell

Kerry Kidwell was born on a 640 acre livestock and grain farm near Shirley, IL in the early 1950’s. He attended a country grade school (Ben Funk) and later graduated from Heyworth High School. His next educational adventure took him to the University of Illinois (go Illini!) where he planned on becoming an engineer.

That didn’t work out so well, but Kerry did end up with a degree in Business Administration in 1973. He worked on an MBA, but quit for lack of money. He worked several different jobs, from factory to construction to basketball referee in the 1970’s. In 1979, Kerry obtained his real estate license after getting “stuck” on his first house purchase. He later bought the brokerage he worked for, and ran his own company for about 10 years, going back in sales for someone else at that time.

Kerry became interested in real estate education along the way, and started teaching prelicense classes in 1988. Shortly thereafter, he got involved with teaching CE throughout the state. He now teaches a variety of classes throughout Illinois and the nation.

He also became involved in a plethora of REALTOR® activities and leadership roles. The following are a few highlights:

  • Local Association President, twice REALTOR® of the Year and in 2004 was selected to the BNAR Hall of Fame
  • State District Vice President and chaired many committees and task forces, including Seller Disclosure Task Force, for which Kerry earned a Presidential Medallion.
  • CRS of the Year, Educator of the Year and REALTOR®-Associate of the Year were three other honors he earned at the state level.
  • At the national level, he have served on many committees and groups, including the one that started the current Realtor Public Image Campaign.  In 2005, he chaired NAR’s Education Committee.
