Ryan made buying a house a lot less stressful. He went and searched for a house in the neighborhood we wanted. His background in construction and engineering made buying a house much less stressful. He found our perfect house and it wasn’t even on the market. I would highly recommend him.


Words can’t describe how thankful my wife and I were that we chose Ryan to be our realtor for our first ever home. Ryan was incredibly patient while we walked through house after house after house. He was very informative and was able to answer every question we threw his way. Most importantly he showed incredible attention to detail in every home we looked at and the house we ended up buying. Ryan is a true professional. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new home.

Ryan helped me navigate through the process of purchasing my first home, and was incredibly patient and willing to walk me through all the details that come with buying a house! He was always easy to reach when talking through each step, and made sure I had every concern and question answered along the way. I highly recommend Ryan, and will definitely be sending others his way!


“Absolutely fantastic Realtor from first call to close.

My wife and I are first-time homebuyers who have backed out a couple times in the last few years due to a loss of confidence/trust in our realtors. It’s such a difficult market to find a home–and as we are an Active Duty Army family serving outside the continental U.S., we had to search remotely.

Ryan called back to an initial inquiry very promptly and immediately established trust with his knowledge and honesty. We never once felt like Ryan was trying to pressure us into a sale. We conducted a fair amount of independent research on the local market before choosing Ryan, and his honest answers to our questions confirmed he was the right guy for us. He had plenty of experience with the VA Loan, and as a well-connected and respected Columbia native, his word carried weight in transactions. I was extremely surprised at how quickly Ryan got us under contract for a home in our desired range and location.

In previous experiences, Realtors would stay very engaged for the first few days and then relegate us to an assistant. We never had this issue with Ryan. He was available 24/7, always responded quickly, and was very helpful and patient in walking us through some of the finer points of first-time homebuying. He had excellent recommendations for all local services and utilities, and seemed to know just about everyone in Columbia. This was extremely helpful as out-of-state buyers.

Ryan’s knowledge of local construction codes and property management made the walkthroughs extremely efficient. He didn’t beat around the bush, giving frank and sound analysis that was later echoed by the various home inspectors. I’ve experienced realtors in the past who clearly overlook serious flaws–we did not have this issue at all with Ryan.

When we faced some unforeseen administrative complications at closing, Ryan worked closely with the buyers and kept us informed at all times. He truly went above and beyond to close the sale.

I cannot recommend Ryan enough. There’s a reason he’s generally the highest-rated realtor across a plethora of rating websites and forums. If you are a veteran and/or active duty servicemember venturing out into a VA Loan for the first time, rest assured that Ryan will guide you safely through the process.”
