Working with the best in the business is the only choice in real estate today, and Ryan Maloney and The Long Group have recently aligned with @properties, the #1 independent brokerage in Illinois and #1 real estate firm in Chicago.

@properties shares our commitment to offering the most comprehensive and professional marketing, sophisticated technology, and expert market knowledge, supporting the highest standards of service and representation YOU expect and deserve. With local leadership and national and international reach, we’ll bring results to clients wherever their buying and selling goals take them.

Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, in 2004 Ryan moved to this great town and he loves calling Chicago home! He completed two years of undergraduate studies at Kennesaw State University in Georgia before finishing out his Political Science degree at Loyola University-Chicago.

One of his deepest passions growing up was playing tennis. It was perhaps fate (and a bit of luck!) that his first job in Chicago was with Midtown Tennis Club—the largest indoor tennis facility east of the Mississippi. His position and responsibilities grew quickly and within a year he was promoted to Sales Associate and led his team for 3 consecutive years thereafter. In 2009, he was named Top Sales Associate for Tennis Corporation of America.

After 5 years of accomplished sales work, he left Midtown to pursue his Master’s degree in Nonprofit Administration at DePaul University, and graduated in 2011 with an MPA. During his studies, in 2010, he was selected to join 15 emerging non-profit professionals for a grassroots exchange program funded by the U.S State Department and Turkey. After completing the initiative, he stayed overseas for the next few years and taught 1st grade English at an international school.

Following this interesting and diverse journey, Ryan decided to combine his love of Chicago with helping people and earned his real estate license and accepted a broker position with Prudential Rubloff Properties in April 2013. In January 2014, he was asked to join The Long Group with Jennifer Long and is excited about this new step as an @properties broker.

Ryan specializes in the north side of the city. He has called Andersonville, Ravenswood, Edgewater, and now North Park his home. In fact, 94% of my clients from 2014-2015 reside in this part of Chicago.

He spends much of my free time enjoying our beautiful lakefront and playing tennis at one of our great outdoor courts.
