About Ryan

Ryan Lee has been in real estate for almost twelve years! He came to Chicago fresh out of college at Michigan State University with a communications degree and dove right into the business at Keller Williams. He and his mentor Nick Libert moved to Exit Realty for six years where he won a couple Bronze sales awards at Exit Realty Int'll Corp and their business grew year over year. In the fall of 2014, he moved to @properties and continued to be a Chicago Association of Realtor's Top Producer from 2012-17 including being in the top 1% in 2016. April 2018 he moved his business to while partnering with Kim Kappelman

Ryan prides himself with the relationships he establishes with his clients, always putting their best interests first and "not thinking with his wallet"-a phrase he uses often when describing other brokers. It's always best to do what is right for a client and never push sales which he sees in the business all too often. He specializes in listing properties for his clients but also thoroughly enjoys finding homes for people and creating that connection with them as often it will be the biggest thing they buy! Transitioning families from condos to larger homes in Chicago or the suburbs is also a process he enjoys

Outside of work, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife Katina and two dogs Cooper and Louie. He loves playing golf, running on the lake, and hanging out with friends as well, but mostly, the conversation turns to real estate!

Testimonials:

"Ryan found us an absolute gem! Met and exceeded all of our expectations. He went above and beyond when searching for us. He really made our first time buying a home enjoyable." - MW

"Ryan is a great broker, he was so helpful through the entire process. We looked at several properties and Ryan was very candid with his feedback and wanted to be sure we found the absolute perfect option for us! On top of helping us find out perfect place this time, he also helped us find our previous condo and also sell the condo for a great profit!!!" - AH

"Ryan was diligent in helping our expanding family move to our new home, as he helped to sell our condo in the city and look for our future home in the city and western suburbs. I was always impressed with the amount of traffic Ryan and Joey generated at our condo and appreciated his straightforward and honest communication. While it took longer than we initially expected, Ryan saw it through to the end." - MC

"Ryan and his team were wonderful. We were from out of town and they made accommodations to show us properties during the time we were in town looking for a home. We saw over 40 properties in two days which Ryan and his team had to get scheduled and permission to show us. Overall, outstanding job!! I would recommend Ryan and his team to all my friends and family!" - PJ

"Thanks for all of your help!! Excited for the next one :)" - CA

"Ryan did an outstanding job helping my wife and I buy our first home. We started with a very wide set of criteria, and Ryan helped us narrow down our objectives quickly in a consultative way (no pressure). His knowledge of the Chicago (downtown and suburban) real estate market is very strong. Ultimately, we ended up buying a new construction condo in a neighborhood (Logan Square) that we were not initially familiar with, as Ryan helped educate us on the buying process, the dynamics at play in various neighborhoods, and many other factors. And we felt very comfortable by the time we were locked into our decision. Ryan was extremely responsive, did not pressure us, and always provided great insight when we questioned any aspect of what we were getting ourselves into. We would definitely recommend Ryan, as our experience with him was excellent." -CW

"Ryan was very knowledgeable and helpful through the entire search process. We would not have been as successful without Ryan's help. We would definitely recommend Ryan to any of our friends & family who are looking for a home in the area." -NG

"Ryan did a fantastic job in meeting our high expectations. He worked smart and hard for us, which proved necessary when our first deal fell through. Ryan was able to get the train back on the tracks and we had our place sold only a few days after the unfortunate first attempt." - SA

"We dealt with Ryan's associate Joey Tanzillo. Joey made the whole process go smoothly and was a pleasure to work throughout. We looked at almost 15 properties over the course of a few weeks and came away with exactly what we were looking for in our first home. He was extremely responsive and on call at all hours.I cannot recommend Joey enough." - SH

"Ryan was great to work with! He helped us find our home very quickly! He did a great job of really listening to our needs and requests and was able to find multiple properties that fit our criteria. He was always quick to respond to questions or concerns and was easy to get a hold of through e-mail or phone calls and texts. He went out of his way to be available on our schedule and supported us through the entire process. I was confident having Ryan as our agent from start to finish." - KY

"Ryan is one of the best buyer's agents in Chicago. He is very sought after for both his expertise & his excellent work-ethic. He not only works hard for his clients, but he guides them through the home-buying process to make each client make a stressful move a breeze. Ryan is a colleague I look up to & am constantly learning from. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" - KH

"I have consulted with Ryan on numerous occasions where I have needed advice or help regarding anything real estate. He's extremely knowledgeable and reliable. He's a great guy to have in your corner." - RG
