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!
"The attention that Ryan gave to our needs as first time home owners, made me feel confident about our decision and excited to make it happen. A particular philosophy in his service that made me feel good about the purchase was his transparency in regards to our commitment to the property. He made sure we were as informed as we could be about the characteristics of the home, and that we were comfortable with the decision we were going to make. He wasn't just showing a house, He was bringing us to our home."

Ryan was very responsive to all questions, he is very knowledgeable in his field and took his time to explain things to us. Even though we communicated solely via emails and phone conversation, as we reside in the U.S., we appreciated how reachable he was.
