Stop your search and hire Ryan. I started connecting with agents a few months ago and was open to any deal at all in Atlanta where I lived or Phoenix, where I could move. I got in touch with a few real estate agents and wholesalers, and most of them promised to return calls but never did or just set up lame MLS searches and barely followed up. Ryan responded to my initial email immediately and talked me through various investment opportunities including multi-families, house-hacking, student rentals, etc, set up and refined great searches for all options, spent hours on the phone with me analyzing why properties would or would not be a good fit, and more. I decided on a live-in flip to start, and Ryan showed me the house remotely via some great professional-style photos and helped me submit a competitive offer, negotiate, and close from across the country. Ryan knows real estate from his own experience flipping and managing his own rentals, and he definitely knows the Phoenix area having spent all his life here — his recommendations for the best dentist and breakfast burrito really hit the mark. My first deal was so easy, and I’m really appreciative of all the advice he gave me. He’s not just a rock star professional, he’s a great person — he’s easy to get along with, fun to work with, and incredibly thoughtful (he stocked my new fridge with the essentials, changed light bulbs when he knew I would be pulling in from out of town late at night, and made minor fixes before I even knew issues would annoy me). I’m so glad to have found Ryan and am already working with him on offers for my next deal. To many more! – Melissa N.
