Ricky Eilerman Ricky Sells Georgia

Ricky Eilerman is a true man of service, first serving his country and the people of Effingham County as a soldier in the United States Army for 5 years as an MP and Sergeant. He is extremely proud of his military career and is a huge supporter of his brothers and sisters still serving in the military today, as well as those who have served in years past. Ricky continues to serve his community today as both a full-time firefighter in Savannah and as a licensed REALTOR® in Effingham County.

Ricky found real estate through the guiding hand of his lovely wife, Ivy Eilerman, who is the Area Manager for On Q Financial in Savannah, GA. Through encouragement from Ivy and a fellow firefighting real estate agent in Florida, Ricky decided to take the leap of faith and begin his career in real estate. He attended Real Estate School through the Georgia Real Estate Commission and passed on his first attempt. Shortly thereafter, Ricky earned the Rookie of the Year Coldwell Banker Award in 2017. “I love helping people pick out their homes,” says Ricky. “Real estate has been the perfect fit for me.”

When Ricky and Ivy started their family, they relocated from Florida back to Ivy’s hometown in Effingham County. “There’s no place I would rather raise a family than right here in Effingham County. I absolutely love the connection and the small-town family feel of Effingham,” explains Ricky.

Ricky is a man of service to his community and country as a firefighter and Army Veteran, but it is obvious his family is what he finds the most pride in each and every day. “I love my wife,” said Ricky passionately. “I love singing and playing guitar with her, and it is something we love to do together quite often.”

The value Ricky places on family is also evident in his approach to real estate. Being a family guy, Ricky knows what is most important to young families looking to buy and sell in Effingham County. “I know what it’s like to have to make those big decisions as a parent while worrying about how they will affect your family. I know because I have been there! I want people to rest at ease, knowing I understand, being a Dad myself,” explains Ricky. Working with Ricky is stress-free, as he is not focused on rushing the deals to make a commission. He is able to support his family through his full-time job in service allowing the process of buying a home take direction from his client’s timeline and not his own. “I don’t care if we close in 30 days or 100 days. I want what is best for YOU,” explains Ricky. Ricky is honored to have the opportunity to work with the people of Effingham County. “I love serving Effingham County and bringing people into Effingham County. If I get to help pick out our future neighbors, what a true blessing that is,” explains Ricky. “I am proud of what I do, and I am proud to continue to serve.”
