Ryan is the best! This is our 3rd real estate transaction with him and he continues to impress us! Ryan is highly experienced and super professional, he sold our place at asking while setting a new neighborhood comp - all before listing on the MLS as he leveraged his brokerage’s internal exclusive listing. Ryan kept us informed every step of the way so the transaction was very smooth as it always is with him. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for an amazing real estate agent in the greater LA area!!!
Ryan helped us buy our dream house in a tough seller's market. As a tech family relocating from the Seattle area, we are type A, do things by the book, and have many questions. He impressed us with his hometown understanding of neighborhoods, traffic patterns, schools, and resale value knowledge. He’s also super funny and kept our spirits up throughout the whole process. We are SO thankful we had Ryan in our corner from start to end.
When we reached out to Ryan, we had a wide geographical range—we knew we would be relocating back to Los Angeles but had not yet narrowed the location thing down. He was patient and educated us on the various neighborhoods—strengths, quirks, and challenges of the neighborhood of each house we visited. Most importantly, Ryan took the time to learn what was important to us as a family, beyond square footage and superficial features. As a result, he could confidently make recommendations based on his vast experience and his knowledge of our needs.
He was not afraid to say when a house didn’t seem like a good value or a good fit for our family. However, ultimately it was our decision, and Ryan never pressured us one way or the other.
His business and negotiation acumen was first rate! His mortgage contact was excellent. He helped us write competitive offers and his advice was always spot on. When putting in offers, Ryan was good at getting the price right and suggested the right conditions, too. Because of the red hot seller’s market with very low inventory, when we didn’t get a house they were all due to other factors (e.g. no limit offer, unlimited rent-back with an unspecified closing date, etc.). While it was frustrating to miss out initially, Ryan helped us to be patient and not panic, even when it seemed that no suitable houses were coming on the market for a while.
When we had an offer accepted on our dream house, there were several highly stressful road blocks in the process. Ryan was relentless in clearing everything up and giving us great advice throughout. He also had great relationships with inspectors and contractors and helped us get to and through closing with care and support.
We give our highest recommendation of Ryan and his team.
Working with Ryan Shaw was a pleasure from start to finish. From the first meeting, Ryan was clear, concise and methodical. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and thinks every detail through - staging, photos, timing - in order to put your listing in the best possible position for sale and profit. He was responsive and communicative throughout. Perhaps best of all, Ryan delivered above and beyond all of the goals he laid out for us at the start. In addition to being excellent at his job, he’s also a great guy and we will always consider Ryan a friend.
Where do I begin reviewing Ryan? FIVE STARS. I can't imagine a more knowledgeable, professional, and responsive agent. Ryan represented my elderly parents in the sale of their un-remodeled Hollywood Riviera home of 55 years. (He was referred by my parents' financial planner.) He handled everything from start to finish, as my parents had moved out of the area and one had become seriously ill. Bottom line, Ryan fully understood my parents' particular situation and then negotiated and went to the mat for them. He has a busy roster, yet I always felt we were No. 1. We could not be happier with the outcome, which was well over asking price. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND.
Ryan is the best there is. Being able to fully trust someone in such a complicated process is invaluable. He is personable, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and tough. He is absolutely the guy you want in your corner!
Ryan and his team did a great job guiding us through our first home sale.
He answered all of our questions and even answered questions we didn't know we had.
He was able to get us an off market offer that was higher than any previous sale in our community.
The staging made our house look like it was out of a magazine. Our friends and family didn't even recognize the house after it was staged. I'm sure it added tens of thousands more dollars to the offer than if we didn't stage it.
The transaction was so easy and stress free. We'd highly recommend Ryan for any real estate need!
At first I thought my property was ready to sell, Agent convinced me otherwise, and I’m really happy that I listened.
Without his help, I wouldn’t have been able to sell my property for more than my asking price. Professional, considerate, and very experienced, Agent helped me prep my home, marketed the heck out of it, and was amazing at the negotiation table. If you’re selling your home in Sample City, talk to Agent.
