Ryan grew up in the small town of Cobourg, Ontario but found his way to the Nation’s Capital to pursue a degree in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. Although he discovered that a career as a Kinesiologist was not his true passion, he did manage to find his wife along the way! Erin and Ryan met on the first day of “frosh week” and haven’t looked back since (awwwwww).
Following his undergraduate degree, Ryan went on to complete a Masters in Human Kinetics with a focus on Intervention and Consultation, as well as a Bachelor of Education. When all was said and done though, and with a hat trick of degrees (plus the accompanying student debt!) Ryan realized he wanted to pursue the entrepreneurial spirit he had been ignoring, but in a way that allowed him to tap into his formal education. Enter stage left – Real Estate.
It didn’t take long for Ryan to realize he made the right move...in his first year he was Rookie of the Year at his Brokerage. Three years later he was extremely honoured to be recognized by Coldwell Banker International as one of the top 30 under 30 agents worldwide (and the only Canadian!) in its inaugural year. He consistently lands in the Top 10 at his Brokerage, but more importantly he continues to receive the Ultimate Service award which is based solely on client feedback. Ryan is also an active member at the Ottawa Real Estate Board as part of the YPN committee, and has taken/continues to pursue extra courses and designations as part of his commitment to continuous learning (check out an article on his passion for learning here!
Whether you’re a first time buyer, seasoned seller or successful investor, your best interests are always at the forefront of Ryan’s mind. Having some fun along the way helps round out the signature experience and often leads to lasting friendships with clients and their families.
