"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."
"" We just wanted to say thank you very much for helping us buy (and find!) our new home and guiding us through the process. You are the best! Do let us know if we can help write a good review for you somewhere, would be glad to recommend you to others. All the very best to you! ""
"" First off, you deserve HUGE kudos. Dave and I can’t thank you enough for all the effort you put into the sale of our loft. You are incredible at what you do. I will be recommending you to everyone I know in Chicago. You truly made the process of selling our condo from out of state, a breeze. You went WAY above and beyond the call of duty to get this thing off the market. We truly appreciate all of your efforts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.""
"" Ryan was very professional to work with in finding my first home. His expertise in the Chicago real estate market was a great help for our purchase from start to finish. I would recommend everyone looking for a personable and knowledgeable real estate work with Ryan Parks.""
"" I met Ryan when he came to my company to give a presentation for first-time home buyers. At that time, I had already started looking for my first home and had spoken with a few real estate gents. After Ryan’s presentation, I already felt more knowledgeable and calm about buying a new home. Ryan has a large knowledge of Chicago’s neighborhoods and is able to help you better understand areas you may not know very well. Being a first-time home buyer, I am much more comfortable using a veteran Realtor. Ryan will not steer you wrong and will leave you in a better situation than when he met you.""
"" When selecting a real estate professional, we decided to hire someone who was going to look into our best interest. When going through the home buying process for the first time, Ryan helped us to understand the important details that we would've overlooked without his professional guidance. Buying/selling a home can be a very labor intensive process and Ryan took on most of the responsibility, to take that work off our shoulders. With that said, he helped to educate us to make a great decision. I have recommended Ryan to my friends and clients and have no doubt they will be in great hands.""
"" Ryan is a great Realtor! Ryan was the perfect Real Estate Consultant for me. He listened to my requirements and put together a list of potential homes. He drove me around Chicago explaining in detail each neighborhood/unit. Ryan did not sell me on every unit, but rather he showed me units that were good for my requirements and ones that were not. Ryan found the perfect condo for me in Roscoe Village, and I couldn't be happier. Anytime I meet someone looking for a home I automatically recommend they use Ryan.""
"" Thank you for all of your time and effort working with us to buy our first condo. Your dedication working online to send us information helped make the inter-state purchase successful & efficient. We are looking forward to the move.""
"" Ryan is easily the most professional person I have met to date. Having known Ryan for over 14 years, he does an amazing job of separating business from personal friendships. He is a high integrity person who I know can not only get the job done right, but on time with great attention to detail. I would recommend Ryan to anyone that is looking for an agent who is the best in the business.""
"" Ryan Parks helped us find a great condo at a great price. He was dedicated and accessible at all times throughout the process, and he was an excellent resource for us as we navigated the real estate universe for the first time. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family looking to buy a place.""
"" Ryan was the steady rock in our home buying experience. He helped us find a home we loved. We looked at over 100 properties prior to working with Ryan and he was able to hone our search immediately. From contract to closing was not the smoothest process due to our lack of experience, but Ryan was there for us every step of the way. He gave us sounds advice at every opportunity. Without his help we would not have closed on time. He was phenomenal.""
"" Ryan proved to be exceptionally knowledgeable of the Chicago market; particularly given the amount of distressed properties currently on the market. His insight proved invaluable in deciding which property was the right fit. Despite a year long endeavor, Ryan was patient and willing to work through the many obstacles until I was finally able to find the right condo. Going forward, Ryan will be my first choice when looking to buy/sell real estate as well as an easy recommendation to friends, families, and co-workers.""
"" We have worked with Ryan on both sides of the transaction - home purchase and sale. We were impressed right away with his knowledge, ideas, and commitment to our needs, and remain impressed with his professionalism and client service.""
"" Although I know Ryan Parks on a personal level, he was professional every step of the way. He was very responsive, and timely as well as thorough with any questions I had. And being a first time homebuyer, there were lots of questions! His keen eye picked out details that I could have easily overlooked and he really took the time to understand what I wanted out of the property. I really couldn't say enough good things about my experience with Ryan. From the mortgage broker to the property lawyer all recommendations through Ryan were stellar.""
""We hired Ryan to sell our condo during an extremely tough time as far as selling property is concerned. The condo sold in light of the fact that two other homes were in foreclosure at the same time we were trying to sell ours. Ryan was thoughtful, careful about how we proceeded forward, and allowed us to use him as a venting machine. We would hire Ryan again in a heartbeat. He is knowledgeable, punctual, and has a great sense of humor. Much needed during a time of such high stress.""
""We used Ryan to help us buy our first condo/home a year ago. He was terrific throughout the entire process. Being first time buyers, he was able to walk us through the initial steps, from something as simple as just knowing what kind of place we should be looking for, all the way to the end. We definitely would not have found our perfect home without his help and patience. He always made us feel like we were his most important client. Not only all of those great things, but he also went on national television with us and appeared on House Hunters. He's the man!""
