Drawn to the entrepreneurial life of a Realtor®, Ryan McLennan joined Gary Greene and came to the Fairfield office, where he welcomed the opportunity to join the Ellis-Nabors team.
This Texas A&M student is always busy too, starting with adding some well-respected real-estate credentials to his name. He obtained his Realtor’s® license, and quickly set about to complete the Graduate Realtor® Institute (GRI) designation program, which requires ninety hours of classroom work. He is also a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), a certification that less than five percent of Realtors® in the country possess. “With the classroom education I’ve gotten for this,” Ryan says, “I’m that much better prepared to negotiate the real estate process for my clients.”
A Houston area native, Ryan knows his city! This for sure is of great benefit to buyers and sellers. He understands and has a working knowledge of the local culture, schools, areas, and commerce and how that all impacts the home buying and selling process here in our great city! Understanding fully how buying a house is one of the biggest life decisions a person can make, Ryan aspires to help people to do that—and make it an enjoyable experience throughout the process. One of the most important things for Ryan is being trustworthy, which he says,“It’s at the core of who I am and it is critical, I believe, in being a Realtor®. Because without the trust of your client, you have nothing.”
Ryan is a family man, and his family further inspires him to the high bar he’s set for himself—being driven, detail-oriented, ever-learning, and more—in his work.
In his occasional downtime from coaching baseball and striving to achieve his entrepreneurial goals, Ryan can be found out on the golf course, or rooting for any Houston sports team! He loves the Astros, and enjoys going to games! Ryan is also an active member in his church, Hope City, where he attends regularly and volunteers.
