Working with the best in the business is the only choice in real estate today, and Ryan Maloney and The Long Group have recently aligned with @properties, the #1 independent brokerage in Illinois and #1 real estate firm in Chicago.

@properties shares our commitment to offering the most comprehensive and professional marketing, sophisticated technology, and expert market knowledge, supporting the highest standards of service and representation YOU expect and deserve. With local leadership and national and international reach, we’ll bring results to clients wherever their buying and selling goals take them.

Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, in 2004 Ryan moved to this great town and he loves calling Chicago home!  He completed two years of undergraduate studies at Kennesaw State University in Georgia before finishing out his Political Science degree at Loyola University-Chicago.

One of his deepest passions growing up was playing tennis. It was perhaps fate (and a bit of luck!) that his first job in Chicago was with Midtown Tennis Club—the largest indoor tennis facility east of the Mississippi. His position and responsibilities grew quickly and within a year he was promoted to Sales Associate and led his team for 3 consecutive years thereafter. In 2009, he was named Top Sales Associate for Tennis Corporation of America.

After 5 years of accomplished sales work, he left Midtown to pursue his Master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration at DePaul University, and graduated in 2011 with an MPA.  During his studies, in 2010, he was selected to join 15 emerging non-profit professionals for a grassroots exchange program funded by the U.S State Department.

The group assisted in the development of a user-friendly, interactive website to engage young professionals on climate initiatives, environmental news, and mutual ‘green’ interests between Turkey and the United States. The opportunity was life changing, and Ryan returned home to earn his ESL Teaching Certification and moved back to Turkey for a year to accept a 1st grade English teaching position with Istanbul International School.

Following this interesting and diverse journey, Ryan decided to combine his love of Chicago with helping people and earned his real estate license and accepted a broker position with Prudential Rubloff Properties in April 2013.  In January 2014, he was asked to join The Long Group with Jennifer Long and is excited about this new step as an @properties broker.

Clients are saying:

"Ryan has been the go to agent for Washington Elmwood Apts., since 2014. He is very professional and makes the whole sales and rental process painless, but most importantly Ryan is a pleasure to work with."

"Ryan is the absolute BEST around. A challenging issue came up while my property was under contract and he handled it with patience and clarity and was super supportive as we dealt with it. We felt like a seamless team from beginning to end throughout the excitement and the challenges. I'd recommend Ryan to anyone without hesitation."

"So thankful to have gotten to work with, James Ryan Maloney! As a first time home buyer Ryan was extraordinarily helpful. On top of being friendly, accommodating and great to work with personally, Ryan was also able to take me through the full step-by-step process of finding and buying my first home. He was patient and generous in taking me around to see many different options, and always available to chat about the buying process, while dealing with my first-timer nerves along the way. He was able to address all my questions and concerns in a clear and professional manner, including making a success recommendation for a loan officer, lawyer and inspector leading to a fast and successful closing. Even after closing Ryan made recommendations for painters and people to help finish my floors. I would highly recommend working with Ryan, he is thoughtful and kind while being knowable about Chicago's real estate scene . Having come through the process, I couldn't imagine getting to the other side of closing without him."

"Ryan was the best and made purchasing my first home a great experience. His knowledge and organization in realistate is unbelievable. He took the stress out of my hands from start to finish making this process as smooth as can be. I highly recommend Ryan and can assure you he will thrive at finding you your dream home as he did for me. :)"

"Ryan made the whole transaction so easy. He was able to recommend a lawyer, inspector, handyman and fireplace specialist. Always a positive attitude and a great attention to detail. He made the whole process fun while being a total professional. Thanks Ryan"
