Leonard Ramsey was born in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, where he was introduced to the business environment at a very young age through the family business, Ramsey’s Guest House and Hotel. When he was 17, Leonard moved to the US to attend Bradley University, double majoring in Criminal Justice and Sociology with minors in Political Science and History. He then went into Paralegal studies at Roosevelt University, before going back again for yet another undergraduate degree in Informational Technology.
Leonard began his financial career in the legal department before transferring into a Personal Banker role, which allowed him to work closely with clients and different team members across all departments. From the interactions he had with his clients, he was encouraged to join the mortgage industry. This would let him continue building relationships while also helping individuals and families make their dream of homeownership a reality. Leonard is an advocate for all clients, willing to go above and beyond to help them realize their financial goals.
Leonard currently lives in Chicago, IL, and is married to his best friend of over 20 years with their two beautiful children: daughter, Logan, and son, Liam. The Ramsey’s recently added a new addition to their family, Lightning, an energetic Australian Shepherd. In his spare time, Leonard is a sports enthusiast, specifically basketball, where he loves to give back to the game by coaching AAU girls and volunteering for various sports activities at his kids’ school.
