Ryan grew up in Louisiana and moved to Austin in 2001. He started Spyglass Realty in 2008 as a place to be a solo agent with a couple of agents. In 2015 he started to put plans in place to take his “team” into a real brokerage and built systems and processes in place to grow the team.

In 2019 he sold his last home and by 2021 he had grown the brokerage to 42 agents and in 2022 he had 100 agents. He doesn’t hire new or part-time agents and his leadership team’s main focus is hiring agents that have the potential to double or triple their production.

Ryan has served in an advisory role for many real estate platforms as well as other tech companies. He served on the customer advisory board for Workplace by Facebook and The Genie.ai. He keeps up with current technology trends and is always looking for ways to contribute to automation and technology services.
