Buyers, sellers and developers have consistently turned to Ryan Preuett for his unrivaled service and expert knowledge of the luxury market’s unique challenges and opportunities. A global real estate adviser at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, Preuett has built his rapidly expanding business almost exclusively through referrals and repeat clients. He provides an efficient, concierge-style approach to his clients’ needs with an emphasis on saving their most valuable resource — time.
Preuett’s dynamic marketing strategies, rooted in his deep understanding of purchasing drivers, employ cutting-edge technology to target the audience most likely to buy his listings. Since launching his real estate career in 2012, he has drastically increased his business each year, and he holds the highest average transaction size in his office at more than $1.75 million.
After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2002, Preuett settled in Chicago and honed his natural people skills in the hospitality industry for 10 years. His customer-focused approach and valuable network of contacts made his transition to real estate an instant success. He quickly earned the title of top-producing agent in his office. Crain’s Chicago Business named him to its Most Influential Brokers list in 2018 and 2019, and Chicago Agent Magazine nominated him as an industry MVP at its 2016 and 2018 Agents’ Choice Awards.
As a member of Sotheby’s Market Leaders Forum and the Top Agent Network’s advisory board, Preuett is a natural-born connector whose robust network extends throughout the country. The past year has reminded him the importance of remaining dynamic and focusing where clients need him. “There has been a trend of relocating primary residences to tax friendly states as well as second and third homes becoming a much bigger priority. Providing the best service to my clients is paramount and it is not uncommon for me to fly to make an in-person introduction and/or assist in the out-of-state buying process.”
