What do Clients Say?
"When people ask why they need a real estate agent, our experience with Patrick Ryan is a great answer. Patrick knows Chicago forwards and backwards, both the real estate market and the city itself. He knows the ins and outs of the various neighborhoods – the condo buildings themselves, the nearby restaurants and shopping, the accessibility to parks and transportation, etc. – and consequently helped us find the perfect location and condo unit.Patrick helped us with every aspect of the purchase, having many suggestions for mortgage and insurance companies, inspectors, movers, contractors, etc. He advised us at every step in the process, handled the negotiations masterfully, was in constant contact with us, and was very accessible. And despite the stress associated with buying real estate, Patrick made it enjoyable.We wholeheartedly recommend Patrick Ryan for anyone in the real estate market. Working with him is a pleasure."Karen & Rich, relocation from New York to Millennium Park luxury condo
Being the youngest daughter in a very Sicilian family made looking for my first home a unique experience for all parties involved. We had a very specific idea in mind of what we wanted and where we wanted to be. Even though the idea of what we "knew" we wanted changed, a few times, Patrick kept me motivated to keep looking and made the process fun. He stuck with us where most people would have given up and I'm so happy he did because he found us the perfect spot! Even after the purchase Patrick has continued to help by using his developer background and not only recommending where I can make improvements but providing me with contacts of who he knows that can do the job. I absolutely loved working with Patrick and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a new home."Stella, purchased 3 bedroom penthouse condo in Palatine
"Patrick was an exceptional realtor. Over the course of 6 months Patrick maintained dedicated and in tune with all of our needs and changing opinions. Patrick made the process of buying a new home easy and fun. There was not a day in which I didn't feel that Patrick was available to talk or meet us at the last minute to see a home. It is rare that a realtor becomes someone you consider a true friend but with Patrick that was the case. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our new home and we have Patrick to thank for that!"Sarah & Ian, Sold condo in River North, purchased Single Family in Wicker Park
