Growing up in Kenosha, WI Ralph's family owned several businesses.
Ralph's first job in Sales was as a "telemarketer" in 1989 and an assistant to a successful local real estate broker. After serving in the US Air Force from early 1991 to the end of 1994, Ralph joined his family business in the automotive industry gaining valuable experience in marketing, branding and finance. In 1999 Ralph left the family business to pursue a career in the real estate industry, and worked as a mortgage loan officer, and mortgage broker. During those years Ralph became an expert not only in mortgages but also in marketing and began a system of training real estate agents on how to market and convert buyer leads. In 2006 Ralph started a real estate company with a vision of providing "Raving Fan Service".
Ralph grew his company and thrived while other companies suffered during the great recession by marketing pre-foreclosure and foreclosed properties as well as helping homeowners that needed to sell.
As the market recovered, Ralph along with his business partner Ben Gentile reinvented real estate marketing in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northeastern Illinois creating quality content based marketing.
After owning their own brokerage(s) for 12 years, Success Realtors, Inc joined eXp Realty along with their 19 agents to become the largest team in Southeastern Wisconsin to join eXp Realty.
Our local team has agents specializing in every market from Chicago to Milwaukee and our eXpansion team now covers the entire US as well as several international markets.
