Learn More About Our Story & How Real Estate Rumble Started

The Real Estate Rumble is a charity boxing event with participants from local Real Estate, Lending and Construction Industries.

It was founded in 2013 by Ryan Cotter and Greg Pekarsky out of their mutual enthusiasm for real estate, boxing, and helping those in need.

The fighters are volunteers with levels of experience froDSC_0431m beginner to moderate. No professional fighters, just the good people of the community willing to give a little hard work & sweat for the greater good. Proceeds will benefit charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago.

We really enjoy bringing the industry together to have fun, stay in shape, and also help our community in the process! We’re always looking for volunteers, fighters, contributors, and sponsors to help out, so please don’t hesitate to give us a shout if you’re interested in being involved!
