The experience of purchasing his first condominium in Chicago's River North area led Ricky's love of local real estate, and ultimately, his decision to pursue his real estate license in Illinois.

With a decade of experience in data analytics, Ricky is able to provide accurate sales information for all of Chicago's neighbourhoods, allowing him to determine the best pricing strategy that will work for his clients. This has also given him the opportunity to leverage a wealth of real estate expertise by working with two of Chicago's top producers, whose annual sales of over $100M rank the team in the top 1%! His established team of attorneys, lenders, and contractors are able to facilitate the entire real estate transaction from beginning to end whether you are a buyer, seller, or renter.

Outside of real estate, you'll find Ricky watching football matches (being from Zambia he refuses to call it soccer) featuring his beloved Manchester United, on the golf course during the summer months shooting anywhere between 85-100, or entertaining wedding guests by showing his skills on the dhol drum for an internationally known group, Dhol Beat International.

Clients are saying:

"Ricky is the best. I would recommend him to anyone. He really listens to your needs and is responsive to them. He was with us every step of the way. We’re lucky to have found him."

"Very good broker and very professional, taking time to listen your request and make sure he does his best to help you to obtain the place that you want. It's already the second time that we are working with Ricky and he found our new place in only one week. We warmly recommend him and for sure if we plan to move one more time he will be in charge of our new project. Thank you so much Ricky !!"

"Ricky was instrumental in finding an apartment for me and my friends on two occasions. He was always able to find apartments that met our location and price preferences. On top of that, he was always prompt with communication and resolving potential issues between myself, my roommates, and the landlord. I would recommend him to anyone looking to obtain any sort of housing in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs."

"Ricky is an amazing person and a true professional who will make sure you will get the place you are looking for. One of the best we have seen in the business."

"I really appreciated Ricky’s openness and honesty, assertiveness, and willingness to negotiate better and fairer terms for me without me even asking. He sincerely took the time to get to know my likes/dislikes which was apparent in his ability to anticipate what I wanted out of a home. He was reliable and quick with communication. Ricky made this experience comfortable for me and I felt like he had my back. Appreciative for his help through this process."
