“I first met Ryan when we were selling our home. My first impression was that he not only had done his homework about my home, but that he truly understood our family and wanted to sell it for us. When the deal was done, and I had now spent more time with Ryan, there was no doubt that he was the one that was going to find us our new home. Our move was quite emotional and so finding a house to meet our needs was not easy. Ryan listened, observed-got to know each of my kids-their likes and dislikes, as well as mine and my husband. After looking at many homes, he took an inventory for me-when I was most over whelmed. We sat down and made a list of what he had observed-what I was drawn too, what I absolutely hated-how big a home we really needed-the space-he took into account our lives . When we walked into the last house we looked at one another-he knew and I knew. This was my family’s new home. I had to have that house and Ryan was going to make sure we got it. There were 4 other offers. I have no doubt that Ryan’s amazing personality, knowledge and integrity sealed the deal for us. He truly cared. When he met me at the driveway to give me the keys I really feel he was as happy for us as I was. I not only got a house, my family got a new friend.” –Marla B.

“Ryan is the consummate business professional excelling in helping his clients to find the home of their dreams. Aside from his in-depth knowledge of the geographic areas that he represents and his understanding of the intricacies of current real estate legalities, we found that probably Ryan’s primary attribute that contributes to his success is his keen ability to ask the right questions and listen carefully to the answers. That skill enabled him to find us the house we were looking for.” –Jack F.

“I’ve been immersed in the real estate industry for 25 years and have encountered hundreds of commercial and residential real estate brokers and agents.  Of all the residential agents I’ve interacted with, Ryan is the tops.  He is proactive, smart, professional, and diligent.  He focuses on the client’s needs and then goes above and beyond to address those needs.  I will gladly recommend him to others.”  –Jeff S.
