BROKER AND INVESTMENT CONSULTANT (15 years experience)
Investors and Flips,
Information is power in this business and my goal is to provide my clients with the information they need to make the right decisions. I have a background education in marketing and business, 15 years of experience in mortgage lending, licensing education, property sales, management, maintenance and leasing. As such, I bring a lot more than keys to my showings.
Born and raised in the Chicago area, I have spent my whole life here. I understand Chicago as only a local can and will navigate you through all the different pockets and neighborhoods that collectively make up this great city.
From the quaint tree-lined streets of Old Town to bustling towers in Streeterville, to lake view condos in Rogers Park and turn of the century lofts in the South Loop, I have lived in many of the city's neighborhoods. I have experienced the commutes, dined in the restaurants, shopped at the boutiques and frequented the pubs that bring life and a unique style to each of them.
I have watched many of our most popular buildings grow from vacant lots to thriving communities. I enjoy educating people on the history, attractions and many benefits there are to live in Chicago and the surrounding area.
Let me share my knowledge and insight as I help you target the neighborhood and property that best fits your individual style. I am an expert in home buyer representation and negotiations with a focus on first time home buyers and investor portfolio management. So, whether you are new to the process and in need of explanation or a seasoned investor looking to dig into the numbers, I am ready to help you from offer to close.
When it's time to sell, I will price, list, advertise and sell your property fast and with an attention to detail that provides piece of mind. I show dozens of properties every month which keeps me in tune with buyers and the pulse of the market. My experience along with a dedicated marketing team and cutting-edge technology is guaranteed to succeed.
Backed by the power of The Porter Group, my clients experience the highest level of service in the industry. Make it simple!

Clients are saying:
"Ryan was professional to deal with and helped us filter through the many options to find what was suitable. I would recommend and would certainly work with Ryan in the future."
"Ryan worked incredibly hard down the stretch and went above and beyond to secure that the deal would get down with an extremely difficult seller to work with."
"Ryan is very knowledgable about the market, the different Chicago neighborhoods, and is really good at reading people and knowing what they will need/want in a building. I've used him twice for home searches and been very pleased by his attentiveness, communication, and knowledge of the process. I would recommend him to anyone!"
"Ryan is not one of those realtors that does it for a "hobby" or supplemental income. This is Ryan's career and his profession. He is fantastic at what he does. He is very knowledgeable about anything and everything with Real Estate, Appraisals, Closings, Loan Origination, Home Improvement vision, and even the legal side of real estate. He always answers his phone, give you valuable insight and feedback, talk you out of stressful situations, and he possesses that unique sense of when to push you a little (when we needed it) and when to give you your space. We used Ryan to sell our Chicago condo and we used him again to buy in the suburbs. He never said no to a showing, he exhibited EXTREME patience with us, and ultimately he found us the home of our dreams. Our closing was seamless and he was involved in every aspect of the transaction, making sure we understood everything. He'll go above and beyond because he genuinely cares about his clients. Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned real estate investor, you would be doing yourself an extreme disservice by not having Ryan in your corner."
"Ryan goes above and beyond for his clients and works very hard to get the best deal possible for you. In terms of work ethic, research / knowledge in real estate and professionalism, Ryan takes his job very seriously and is great to work with. We were happy to have him represent us in the sale of our condo and he delivered exactly what he promised."
