Licensed in: MT
Raised in the small southwestern town of Dillon, Montana, Ryan has had an intense passion for the land and the outdoors since he was young. Growing up, he was surrounded by three Blue Ribbon trout streams and a sweeping valley that afforded him tremendous hunting opportunities. While enjoying these stunning amenities, he also assimilated the traditional work ethic that a ranching community prides itself on.
Ryan enjoyed a long, successful career in insurance and risk management while watching his father, Tom, build a best-in-class ranch brokerage. Ryan’s strong desire to follow in his father’s footsteps, coupled with his sustained passion for the land and sporting pursuits, eventually brought him to Fay Ranches, where he lives his dream every day, selling Montana ranches with the premier land brokerage firm in the country.
Ryan’s humble, hungry, and smart mentality led him to immediate success at Fay Ranches. His dedication to providing clients with meaningful advice drove him to achieve the only land-specific designation backed by the National Association of Realtors, the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC). Ryan is one of less than ten land specialists in Montana who has earned the ALC designation. He is also a member of the 2021 RLI APEX Producers Club.
The pursuit of a client’s goal is where Ryan excels. Whether assisting a buyer searching for a farm, ranch, or recreational property, or a seller choosing to transition assets, Ryan’s work ethic and acumen inevitably help his client find success.
Like many of his clients, Ryan enjoys multiple sporting pursuits. His appetite for chasing giant whitetails is enormous, yet he loves pursuing all big game and does not hesitate to spend time on many of Montana’s amazing fisheries. He is an avid student of wildlife and habitat management and is a certified Quality Deer Management Steward.
Most importantly, Ryan is an extremely proud husband and father. His entire family loves the outdoors and spends much of their free time together in and around the great Montana landscape.
