Ryan D’Aprile, Founder and Coach
Lindsay Miller, CEO
d’aprile properties began in Chicago’s West Loop, when a small number of agents came together under a shared perspective on the real estate industry. If they could eliminate conflict and unnecessary competition, they could foster a unique company culture, one built on a foundation of collaboration and teamwork. They would share ideas and experiences, and approach the very concept of customer service in new and creative ways. Every agent would have the confidence and support they needed to achieve their own personal and professional goals. And in turn, the company as a whole would gain strength and flourish, ensuring a singular client experience with each and every transaction.
Today, despite hundreds of agents serving clients in four states, and three consecutive years on INC magazine’s list of the 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America, founder Ryan D’Aprile and CEO Lindsay Miller are dedicated to maintaining the company’s boutique feel. The pair have worked together to craft an ever-evolving coaching system, one that ensures each and every team member, from first-year agent to seasoned top producer, feels valued and engaged on a daily basis.
The key, according to D’Aprile, is maintaining that personal connection. “We are very hands-on with our agents. I personally know and have coached every agent on our team. Lindsay and I feel that maintaining an intimate, family-like atmosphere within our company is the foundation for all our success.”
That success has allowed d’aprile properties to establish their #daprilecares program, dedicated to giving back to the communities they serve through charitable programs and fundraisers. By utilizing the combined volunteer efforts of their entire team, they feel that they can be agents of real change for worthy causes across the Midwest.
In the end, D’Aprile and Miller still enjoy the challenge that comes with helping an agent build and maintain a successful business. The goal is to keep every agent thoroughly engaged, while always looking for new ways to exceed their clients’ expectations. “We build lasting relationships with our agents, making sure they feel supported, valued and primed for success, each and every day,” Miller says. “That sense of fulfillment and positivity naturally comes across on the client end, and is what drives every successful transaction, every home purchased or sold.”
