Real Estate Agent Joins Dream Town as Part of O'Connor/Hebson Group

Dream Town Realty welcomes Nate Ryle. He is one of seven agents brought into the company last month as part of the O'Connor/Hebson Group. Mr. Ryle is an established Chicago realtor who specializes in residential home and development sales.

Chicago, IL, June 25, 2010 --( Dream Town Realty, a pioneer in online Chicago real estate, welcomed Nate Ryle to the company last month. He is one of seven new agents to join Dream Town in May as a member of the newly formed O'Connor/Hebson Group. Mr. Ryle has been in real estate for eight years and is experienced in selling residential developments.

Mr. Ryle is a National Association of Realtors Accredited Buyers Representative and a top performing agent in the Chicago area. He obtained his real estate license in 2003, directly after relocating to Chicago following college.

"It's kind of funny how I got into this business," Mr. Ryle explained. "I had an interview for a typical sales position in Chicago and was not at all impressed with the job, so I walked out of there, saw a real estate company around the corner and walked in. I really liked what they were doing and what was involved. Within two weeks I was working for them and eight years later I'm still here!"

Mr. Ryle's introduction to the housing market actually began as a young child growing up in the family business, which built homes for adults with disabilities. He says his upbringing taught him the value of real estate and is responsible for a strong work ethic and dedication to exceptional customer service. Part of Mr. Ryle's career was spent in Arizona, where he was a Sales Manager for the #1 sales group in the state selling large-scale conversions.

Today, Mr. Ryle works predominantly with home buyers, sellers and developers. In his new position with the O'Connor/Hebson Group at Dream Town, Mr. Ryle's focus is mainly in North Side and downtown Chicago properties. His team is also marketing several condo buildings and properties in residential sub-divisions throughout the city. View a listing at

"We have an outstanding crew of agents headed up by two very accomplished Chicago realtors—Barbara O'Connor and Colin Hebson," said Mr. Ryle. "Both were top producers at their previous offices and seem to know just about everyone in this business there is to know."

The O'Connor/Hebson Group formed in May as Ms. O'Connor and Mr. Hebson transitioned to Dream Town from other Chicago brokerages. The group brought in dozens of listings, as well as a handful of professionals from around the area. Other agents to join Dream Town last month with the group are Nycholle Brown, Lloyd Smith, Joffre Colbert and Carrie McCormick.

Dream Town has plans to expand its office space to a fourth location in Lincoln Square, out of which the O'Connor/Hebson Group will be based. The brokerage already has two offices in Lincoln Park and one in the West Loop.

"This is an exciting time for Dream Town," said Yuval Degani, president of Dream Town Realty. "We are growing, developing new programs and expanding our services." As managing partner and co-founder of the 12-year-old company, Mr. Degani has built Dream Town from the ground up. From the onset, the brokerage has been a pioneer in online Chicago real estate with one of the most advanced and powerful home search engines available to today's local consumers. Dream Town's business model focuses on client satisfaction. The company offers a Service Excellence Guarantee (view at
