Clients are saying:
"Ryan was wonderful to work with. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the areas in which we were looking to buy but also understood what a growing family needed. As first time home buyers, he guided us through the process and was incredibly responsive. The entire process from beginning to end felt almost effortless because of Ryan's expertise - I would highly recommend him!"
"We can't say enough positive things about Ryan. As first time home buyers, his knowledge of the process and willingness to guide us through every step was invaluable. He was incredibly responsive, and flexible in working with our busy schedules throughout the search. With all that goes into a first time home purchase, our experience couldn't have been easier, or more reassuring that we were making the right decisions along the way. When we are in the market again for a real estate investment, we will definitely be calling on Ryan for his help. Thank you for everything Ryan!"
"Hotdiggity, Ryan was AMAZING in our three-flat sale. I don't think there are enough words in the English language for us to communicate our appreciation of all that he did and all that he is. Ryan created marketing materials that generated 4X the amount of showings than we had with a previous realtor. He helped us with complicated negotiations with an out-of-country buyer. He managed our expectations when things progressed at an unusual pace. He facilitated attorney discussions that were complex and hard for us to understand. He was a trusted advisor when we needed perspective. And so much more."
"Ryan was involved in selling our condo in Lincoln Square. He was very knowledgable on the area, priced our condo at a fair price to sell and was very involved in preparing us in staging to sell. We sold the condo within 30 days of it being on the market. He was a true pleasure to work with."
"Ryan and his team went above and beyond to help my wife and I both buy our first single family home as well as sell our prior condo - both in Wicker Park within a 6 month period. His suggestions around minimum improvements and staging paid off quite well - we had 2 offers on the first day of listing and sold a few days later. Ryan's professionalism comes through in his thorough research, market instinct, attentiveness and objective advice. Ryan puts the customer first and genuinely wants you to come away satisfied. We never felt pressured to do anything and could not be more thrilled with the results. We would definitely Ryan and his team again should we decide to move again in the future."
