As a local market expert, I can help you find the neighborhood that's perfect for you and help you make the most out of living there. I work in tandem with you by finding out your criteria, then emailing you the listings I think will be the most interesting to you. You decide always what fits in your schedule and when you would like to go out and view properties. Once you find that perfect place, I will fiercely negotiate on your behalf to achieve the best outcome and securest possible investment. As a person entrenched in technology, I also am happy to communicate with you on any social media platform, if that is your preference, allowing you to share listings you have interest in with friends. As someone who grew up on the North Shore and has also lived in the city, I enjoy helping people make transitions either from the city to the suburbs or vice versa. I can help provide you the resources you need in either location.
Listing with Ryan
Technology is king in today's market. In order to sell your listing you need to have it on every major home search site and give it the largest amount of exposure possible to potential buyers. This is something I feel I am particularly adept at. I aggressively market your listing online with a strategy to draw in buyers. First impressions are crucial, and your home's photography and presentation are key components in getting those online buyers to request an in-person showing. I also place your home on my own social media pages in addition to all of the home search sites (Zillow, Realtor, Trulia, Yahoo and more), youtube, and I even assign a url customized website for your home so that it can be "googleable" and easily found. In addition to utilizing technology, I pound the pavement with traditionally marketing techniques, ensuring that every broker in town hears about your listing and is as excited to show it to their clients as I am. I will also keep in touch with you as regularly as you would like with a detailed marketing report of what has been done to sell your home and an analytics page of your home's online virutal showing views. Ultimately though, my value propostion to my clients is that I will sell your home. Period.
Personal Background and Education
I am a graduate of New Trier Township High School, and am always happy to share my experiences with the North Shore school system with parents looking to move their children to the district. I also matriculated with a B.S. of Commerce from DePaul University as a Real Estate Major, since I knew that my passion for real estate was going to lead me into a successful career here on the North Shore. I currently own property and live in the Evanston community and enjoy the close proximity to the Lake Shore, diverse neighborhood, and easy walk to restaurants, movies and of course the easy metra ride into the city. In my small amount of free time not selling real estate I love to play and watch sports, Go Bears and Bulls! And take my dog 'Violet' out for runs.
