Ryan Hill Realty in Naperville said it has merged with Century 21 Affiliated, based in Madison, Wisconsin.
The Ryan Hill Group, will operate under the Century 21 Affiliated brand, and will bring a heightened level of service for homebuyers, sellers and owners in the western suburbs of Chicago.
"We could not be more excited to welcome Ryan Hill Realty to the Century 21 Affiliated family," said Tom Bretz, Chicago CEO of Century 21 Affiliated. "Naperville is a well-established community, and we are thrilled to team up with Teresa Ryan and her team."
Broker/owner, Teresa Ryan, and her brokerage at Ryan Hill Realty have been recognized as top agents locally as well as nationally, having gained awards from as far back as 2006. The most prestigious ranking from 2013 to 2017 is on Real Trends and The Wall Street Journal's Best Agents in America, and The Thousand lists. In 2017, Ryan ranked at No. 84 for Individuals by Transaction Sides.
"I have spent the past 12 months considering every brokerage franchise brand. I looked for the right company that shared the core vision of who we are, not just what we do. A large part of that was to ensure that the company we aligned with believed in serving the community," Ryan said.
"I'm looking forward to this new direction for the Ryan Hill Group and myself," Ryan said. "Over the years, Ryan Hill Realty achieved an amazing level of success as a luxury boutique real estate company. Now, I have every confidence that the Ryan Hill Group will achieve an even higher level of success."
The new office, now under the Century 21 Affiliated name, will house 75 agents and will continue to serve residential, luxury, commercials and investor clients.
