Ryan is an associate covering West-central & SW Idaho where he is client-centric-serving his clients in real estate activities that are focused on their family, their assets and their goals. That said, his focus is mostly on large ranches, farms, mountain & hunting properties, but his business background involves him in commercial, investment & residential real estate, as well. What he enjoys most is that his time each day is blended between business, ministry, his wife, two sons and friends; with all parts having equal priority. The "fun" part of his business is helping ranchers work cows and help hunters in the Rocky Mountains with his sons, Wes and Blake, plus fishing, shooting, farming, cutting wood and fixing fence. Ryan's passion is helping ranchers and farmers with their needs, which is probably a product of his own ranching heritage from a long line of ranching families in both Idaho and California. His whole family is involved in the ag-life with his wife, Heather, leading a 4H sheep project and they help with a lot of FFA projects, too. While at Cal Poly State University in 2001, Ryan was a livestock judge and also judged cattle shows at County Fairs.
But his biggest joys come from mentoring the younger generations as they grow into becoming leaders in the community. Growing up in a family that focused on faith, hard work, and education has given Ryan the values he has today. His family was in the oilfield construction and the cattle business-livelihoods that helped teach him early on the value of hard work and working with others. In his ten years in a corporate role as Operations Director, he led a group of over 600 employees in the food manufacturing industry. His focus was not only increasing production and cutting costs, but more importantly helping his employees reach their full potential. This is where he believes he learned how to treat and serve people.
Now his wife Heather and he endeavor to cultivate those values and traditions in their family life with God at the center of it all. Heather and Ryan have been married since 2006 and have two sons, Wesley and Blake, both of whom he admires and learns from every day. His son, Wes, has Muscular Dystrophy and he feels blessed to be in his life as he brings the family such joy. Ryan is a member on the boards of Midvale Church of Christ, Love Inc. and Midvale FFA Alumni. Ryan also serves as a volunteer with the Midvale Fire & EMS, lending a hand in emergencies.
