Ryan Hill Realty
Since founding Ryan Hill Realty in 2001, owner Teresa Ryan has grown the company to over 40 agents, four divisions (luxury/traditional, foreclosures/ short sales, investments/funds and inside sales) and three locations. The difference, she says, is in the marketing, innovation and agent development.
“Prior to real estate, my background was in marketing and public relations, so I’ve used that experience to set us apart,” she says. “We have the best leads and referral program of any brokerage, using a very unique and focused system to attract more buyers and sellers.”
Ryan Hill Realty focuses on the western suburbs of Chicago, particularly DuPage and Will Counties, and was voted “Best Real Estate Company” by Naperville magazine. Their scope of specialties ranges from luxury properties to foreclosures and short sales, serving the likes of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and other investors looking to purchase, renovate and re-sell/rent.
In June 2013, REAL Trends ranked the Ryan Hill Realty team No. 14 in America, with Ryan on the “Top Thousand” list of Real Estate Professionals. The company also increased revenues by 48 percent and is on track to do the same in 2014. Ryan credits this growth to the company’s dedication to staying ahead of the curve.
Ryan leads by example. She’s a prominent luxury property broker; a Five Star REO and Short Sale Certified agent; a Certified Default Services Professional; a Certified Distressed Property Expert; an Accredited Buyer Representative; and an e-Pro. Being a female business owner, Ryan is also heavily involved with Women Impacting Real Estate Solutions (WIRES) and the National Association of Women REO Brokerages (NAWRB), among many others.
For Ryan, a positive attitude, high integrity, professionalism and helping other people are her vision. “My dad taught me that if you are disciplined,
have a plan and work your plan, you can accomplish your dreams,” Ryan says. “His name – Hill – is a part of this company and is a constant reminder that if we work hard, stay honest and act generously, not only will we enjoy our lives, but we’ll make a positive difference in the lives around us.”
