"Many, Many years of experience"

Jill and the team were great. They know this area from many,many years of experience. Our property was competing for other similar ones in the area but they found a buyer. That's the goal! 

"Knowledgeable, Understanding, Honest" 

Ryan has been our real estate agent twice. Sean is knowledgeable, understanding and honest. Will use them again.

 "Always keeping their clients their first priority"

Sean and Jill Ryan are amazing, to say the least. I have worked with many professionals over the years and I insist on getting things done right. The Ryan's exceeded our expectations and are true professionals. Sean and Jill Ryan are at the top of their game and make things happen. We recently purchased a home that was in foreclosure with Ryan Realtors. The negotiations were intense and they jumped through hoops to make it happen. In my opinion they are second to none, tenacious and aggressive, always keeping their clients their first priority! With the Ryan's you find a rare mix that you don't often find in any industry today: They know their product, the real estate industry, and they work harder than anyone for their clients. If you want players who make things happen, go with Sean and Jill Ryan.

Jill was amazing!  She gave us great advice and helped us every step of the way!  From guiding us with a price to list our property to finding us local handy people to help us get ready to sell.  They went above and beyond in all aspects of our experience!

"I sold six days after it went on the market"

Sean & Jill and their team were great. They gave me an honest appraisal on the market value of my house, hints on how to present it, and leads on workers to do the repairs that were beyond my skill to correct. I sold six days after it went on the market for the price i wanted. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

"You can't go wrong in choosing the Ryan's for your Real Estate needs"

Ryan & Company really have their fingers on the pulse of what is happening in the local marketplace which is a huge asset when buying or selling.  I have been doing business with them for about 10 years and they have always provided excellent advice and service.  Sean is an excellent negotiator and  in several instances has produced a higher sales price on my listings or a lower purchase price on my buys than I thought possible.  You can't go wrong in choosing the Ryan's for your Real Estate needs

"Went above and beyond to provide me with FANTASTIC service" 

I'd like to provide the following testimonial to your FANTASTIC service!!!I wish to thank Ryan and Company, Realtors for listing and selling my mother's home in Wauconda.  Their professionalism was above and beyond my expectations.  After interviewing several local realtors, Sean's knowledge of the local market and local ordinances was extremely helpful in preparing the home for sale.  The constant updates of showings to prospective buyers was impressive.  I would recommend anyone selling a home in the Wauconda and surrounding area to look no further than Ryan and Company.  Sean went above and beyond to provide me with FANTASTIC service.

Thank you again for all your help.

"follows an honest business model with integrity"

Dear Ryan Team,

Thank you for all of your hard work in getting my condominium rented for a 15-month lease in less than 2 months time. Your company showed an incredible amount of professionalism and dedication. Most realty companies would have viewed my small lease needs as less of a priority. The attention that Jill Ryan showed my condominium and me could never be matched by any other realty company. The advice I was given was what helped my unit get rented in a timely manner to wonderful tenants.

Ryan and Company Realtors follows an honest business model with integrity. I appreciate the realtors using their professional judgement to not just take the first tenant that came along. The background checks they provided allow me to rent with a feeling of protection and comfort.

Thank you 

Kerry Berger

"Guidance on our purchase was much appreciated"

"My wife and I used Sean and Jill to look for a new house. We couldn't be happier with the results of our new purchase. No doubt Sean is an expert in Real Estate, and his . He could tell you why houses aren't selling, and correctly predicted the outcome of our negotiation.A Pro to work with...." 
Great Results, Experts with High Integrity!

"happy with your services"


I think all of the staff at Ryan and Company Realtors is great! Ren and Julie both have a knack of getting everything organized in a timely and correct manner. They always present themselves on the phone as completely calm and ready, willing and able to do whatever needs to get done. Jill was completely on top of getting both my primary home and area rental listed with MLS and ready for showings by taking pictures, etc. I could always count on you to give my up front, honest advise and feedback. These are the two reasons I ultimately selected you and Jill when making my decision with whom to list. (I interviewed realty company personnel from four firms before making my selection). I appreciate how you tell me how it is, the facts, the current market trends, etc. Although neither home sold, you were successful in finding suitable renters very quickly for which I am appreciative. I will not hesitate in having you list both homes for sale again-once the market improves or I can't stand being a landlord anymore, whichever comes first!

Island Lake boyhood home / estate sale

Dear Sean,

I am writing to express my thanks for successfully guiding me through the selling process of my parents home in Island Lake. This is the home which my parents raised my brother and I in, having lived there from 1977. This has not been an easy task for me. As you know, there were significant hurdles, including: local foreclosures, tight credit, work needed to the home, and a significant amount of items requiring a new home.

I am taking the time to recognize the excellent guidance and extra effort you displayed throughout the sales cycle. Some items, in no particular order: expert guidance on list price & current market conditions; marketing the home; referrals & arrangements of tradesmen, with a view towards the bottom line; being available at all times & extremely generous with your valuable time; acting as a general contractor; and following the most expeditious path through the process.

As someone who admittedly is stingy with compliments and even less inclined to spend money, I can tell you that you did an outstanding job and exceeded my expectations. I had no concept of the time and effort that you would cheerfully invest in the sale of my family home when I hired you. I say without reservation that you earned every dime of your commission.

My message to your prospective selling customers is simple. The fact that there are homes on my (former) street that have been on the market months & months & longer, rotating through multiple realtors, speaks for itself. As the slogan states, Ryan and Company are "The Results People". There is no need to look further.

All this is to say nothing of the laughs and stories we shared...

Wishing you every success in the future. 

Paul T. Murphy

Thank you so much for your help!

Dear Sean & Jill
Thank you so much for your help on getting 220 Main St. rented, with a 3-year lease. I really appreciate it.

Sincerely, Candice

There is much more to selling than meets the eye..

Sean & Jill
I would like to take the time to Thank You for all the help in the successful sale of the duplex at 911 & 913 East Liberty St. Wauconda. This Experience has taught me a real lesson in the part you played in this sale. There is much more to selling than meets the eye, anyone thinking it will be simple to sell a house is nuts. Thanks again and would never use anyone else to buy or sell with, if there is ever anything I can do for you please let me know. 

Thanks again Joan & Hank Endler

We all know how scary selling a home can be...

Dear Sean,
I wish to take this opportunity to let you know how much I appreciate the excellent service your firm rendered to me when I was selling my home in Wauconda earlier this year.

We all know how scary selling a home can be, therefore, it was reassuring to me to know that you and your staff were always there ready to respond speedily to my questions or concerns with valued counsel.

Sean, I shall have no hesitation in recommending your firm to anyone seeking the service of a professional realtor. 

Kindest regards, Valerie Chisholm

You and your company have been a great help to us.

Thank you very much for scheduling a cleaning for my house. You and your company have been a great help to us. 

Lisa Dahl

You are so Awesome! Thank you for all your help!

You are an amazing realtor. You made it happen. From the VA first saying our new home was a condo, to termite inspection, to everything else.

Thank you very much 

Gary and Annette Baker


We recommend Ryan and Company Realtors and rate it a four-star Real Estate Office.

1st Time Home Buying Made Easy!!

Ryan and Company Realtors were absolutely fantastic for us in our buying process. We mainly worked with Jill Ryan throughout the process and on occasion also spoke with Sean.

We were first time home buyers who knew very little about the home buying process. Jill understood that from the beginning and made sure we were walked through every step. We spoke of the area we wanted and within minutes she had a few listings for us. She spent hours answering questions, providing listings we might be interested in, and showings of those homes. A few times we found a listing that peaked our interest, with the market as 'hot' as it is, they would setup a showing quicker than we ever expected which really showed their determination to find us our perfect home.

Jill and Sean were always available to speak to us, even when we stopped by their office unexpectedly!

We could not thank them enough for making this important decision and process as easy as they were able to do so for us. We love our home and would recommend Ryan and Company Realtors to anyone!

Contacting Sean Ryan is the best decision we've made in years.

For me, buying or selling real estate is a real hassle. It is even more problematic when you live 450 miles away and have not lived Lake County for 38 years. We had to sell the family home to settle my wife's father's estate. We talked to two different local bankers and two lawyers and asked if they were in our shoes, which broker would they get? Without hesitation each said "I would get Sean Ryan". We told a Wauconda family friend of 50 years that we lined up a broker. He said "Get rid of who ever you have and call this broker, Sean Ryan". He laughed when we told him the broker we had already lined up was Sean.

Contacting Sean Ryan is the best decision we've made in years.

When we first talked his manner was brusque, disarmingly direct and to the point. He told us things we didn't want to hear, but he told us the truth. Did you ever hear that from someone in the real estate business? He won't waste your time and won't let you waste his.

If you want someone who wears a red or orange blazer and talks like a politician telling you what he thinks you want to hear, don't bother calling Sean.

He is acutely aware of all the properties on the market and knows the most effective to buy or market real estate.

Sean guided and advised us on how to address all the issues that hit us from left field. He helped us with the well, the septic system, even replacing the refrigerator when it died. Getting a plumber, an electrician, and some muscle for moving heavy furniture were all but a call away for him. We truly believe he knows almost everyone in the county having lived here all his life.

If you are buying or selling and you want someone with no manure, get Sean.
If you want to sell or buy and get results, call Sean and his team. They do the unusual thing these days, they do what they say they are going to do.

Should we move back to Illinois, Ryan Realty is the first call we'll make.

Superior Knowledge!!

I would definitely recommend Ryan Realty. They have superior knowledge and expertise in the areas real estate. They are very honest with the pricing and conditions of the homes.

Tom Murphy

Truly Appreciated!! 

Thank you so much Jill, to both you and your husband, for all your help getting our mom's home ready for sale & seeing it to completion. You both went above & beyond & you are truly appreciated!  All three of us are going to greatly miss our childhood home but we are hopeful the next person will love it just as much as our family did!  God bless!

Mickey Niehoff

Appreciate Your Hard Work!!

Sean & Jill,

Highly Likely to Recommend!! 

 Sean and Jill were recommended by satisfied family members! (Their house sold in 30 days!) We contacted the Ryan's when we decided to sell our house; they came and looked, took notes and measurements of the house and explained the selling process including any documents, but would not discuss a  listing amount until Sean researched market equivalents from area sales.When they presented their recommendation on a selling price, we knew Sean did his homework and wanted to work with us to close a sale at an acceptable price.  Jill's awesome marketing pictures for our sales brochure presented a very nice, eye appealing touch to a tasteful brochure. The Ryan's gave us advice on proper techniques and connected us with their private pool of very talented individuals, on call, to spiff up a few minor faults & touch ups, both inside & outside. They are very tuned into first impressions when they prep a house for a sales opportunity.  We moved before the house was sold and Sean arranged for snow plowing and lawn mowing, as needed. Sean made sure the house was checked regularly just to make sure no problems developed and everything was working and no unexpected problems or surprises with the heat, gas, water or electric.  The Staff is friendly, but all business; we enjoyed working with them, everyone was so very helpful during a very stressful life event!    Jill & Sean have lived in the Wauconda/Island Lake Area forever.  Their deep roots within the community have helped to make Ryan & Company Realtors a well connected, booming business.  This history has allowed them to build a network of friends, business associates and acquaintances that has made them very well connected throughout Northern Illinois; if you want something in particular, they can find it.  They have a list of vendors they use regularly that can take care of any house service you need, whether repairing or just sprucing up and these providers are quick, good and reasonably priced.  We moved before the house was sold and Sean even arranged for our driveway to be plowed and the lawn mowed just before the closing.  He regularly checked the house to avoid surprises.  Their staff is first rate and everyone pitches in to take care of the client.  We are very pleased with their service.
