A proud Chicago native and fifth-generation entrepreneur, Marki Lemons-Ryhal is a renowned real estate educator and keynote speaker specializing in social media training for brokers, banks, and title companies. Over the last 16 years, Ryhal, the founder of ReMarkiTable, LLC, has taught more than 500,000 students and written more than 100 classes approved for continuing education.
After earning her Master’s degree in business administration and teaching hotel and restaurant management courses on a collegiate level, Ryhal made a move to real estate, becoming a loan originator in 1999 and opening up her discount real estate brokerage three years later.
In 2007, she became an expert in foreclosure and short sales in anticipation of the market crash. “I have the ability to interpret trends and pivot my business quickly,” says Ryhal. “Today, I’m pivoting my business yet again in the world of real estate due to COVID-19.”
