Kevin Irish

Omaha, Nebraska-based entrepreneur Kevin Irish began his successful career in the town he long has called home. Recruited to CBS Real Estate Company to sell real estate, Mr. Irish eventually acquired the firm. Under his leadership, the company experienced unprecedented growth. Kevin Irish increased its share of the Omaha market by more than 35 percent and led a team who performed a minimum of 6,000 real estate transactions per year. Eventually numbering in excess of 650 agents, his firm was named Omaha’s finest real estate business six years in a row by Omaha Magazine. The business attracted the attention HomeServices of America, a unit of billionaire Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which eventually purchased it.

In the years that followed, Kevin Irish took on a new challenge as Associate Broker at his residential development enterprise, Kevin Irish Development Company. During this time, Mr. Irish helped to develop more than 600 acres of real estate. He led the development of numerous Omaha-area subdivisions, including Legacy, Lincoln Place, Greyhawk, Plum Creek, Briar Hills, Chestnut Ridge, as well as number of apartment complexes.

In 2011, Kevin Irish shifted his focus to a new business endeavor, launching The Mobile Paw Spa, LLC, a roving pet-grooming service. After less than a year in business, the Mobile Paw Spa already has groomed more than 800 Omaha-area pets. The spa travels from customer to customer in a fully equipped Mercedes Sprinter, offering the convenience of on-site services. Owners may schedule their pets for hand scissoring, de-shedding, de-matting, and toenail polishing. Kevin Irish’s company also features hydro baths, a pet-cleaning system that gently massages the skin, while penetrating the thickest coats. Following the bath, pet owners may further pamper their pets with conditioners and colognes.
