Meet the Team
Born and raised in the Lower Mainland Chris and his family are proud to call Vancouver home. Licensed as a Realtor since 2002, Chris is passionate about the career he’s chosen and it shows.
Not one to limit himself, Chris specializes in many facets of the real estate world including making first-time buyers comfortable with the intricacies of the buying process, assisting sellers in marketing their home for maximum exposure, assembling land that’s ripe for development and managing sales for new residential projects.
Chris prides himself on his ability to focus on his client’s needs while remaining mindful of their wants. He strives to exceed their expectations and enjoys the pleasure of making his client’s dream a reality. His honest, clear approach allows him to build solid, trusting relationships with mutual respect as the cornerstone.
In this fast paced, ever evolving industry Chris realizes the importance of incorporating technology into his business. This allows him to provide a high level of service and open direct lines of communication which are vital for a smooth, successful transaction.
There’s Chris Ryan the Real Estate Agent. Then there’s Chris Ryan the Philanthropist.
With the former, the track record speaks for itself. Licensed since 2003, Chris has sold more than $700 million in real estate throughout his career. He was ranked the No. 1 Sales Agent in his RE/MAX office in 2016, was also named a Top-10 Individual for the local RE/MAX franchise in 2016, and has achieved the RE/MAX Platinum Club (2015) and Chairman’s Club (2016) Awards for annual sales.
Born and raised in British Columbia, Chris was voted one of the top three Realtors in the Vancouver Westender’s Best of the City for 2017. Not only is he one of the most recognized real estate agents in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland Area, he has also been featured on Oprah and Forbes.
As an internationally licensed agent — enabling him to market and sell properties worldwide — Chris manages a premiere team of Luxury Real Estate Agents and has affiliates located all across North America specializing in helping buyers and sellers find properties in the best neighbourhoods. He is also a Certified Global Marketing Agent, a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and a member of the Million Dollar Guild.
Chris’ unbeatable combination of integrity, competence, and a demonstrated ability to handle even the most complicated transactions with ease and grace is the reason why more than 90% of his business comes from referrals or repeat clients.
That list includes financial planners, lawyers, bankers, professional athletes, celebrities and executives. His network is also one of the largest in his field with a client base that includes buyers from every continent.
In 2015, he decided to join RE/MAX because of both its international recognition as the leading real estate organization and its commitment to the community. That firm belief in the importance of giving back also drives Chris’ passion to help others.
Chris got his first taste of philanthropy at nine years old when he raised more than $2,000 by selling chocolate bars at school to help preserve the Amazon Rainforest. As a teenager and into his 20s, Chris proudly sponsored a number of children through World Vision. Continuing his passion of helping others, he travelled to Haiti in 2012 with Compassion Canada and he helped sponsor the building of a Kenyan village in 2014 with the Unstoppable Foundation.
He is now an ambassador for World Housing, an organization which provides homes to families living in slums in the developing world and fosters communities where families can thrive with safety, security and access to life-changing resources. In 2016, he was also the highest contributor to the Children’s Miracle Network in his RE/MAX office, giving a percentage of his income to the charity as well as the Fraser Valley Pediatrics Ward.
In addition to his professional and philanthropic accomplishments, Chris is also an author and speaker. His book “Passion Hunt”, which is set to release in 2018, teaches individuals to find their passion and monetize it.
In 2011, Chris was selected as one of the finalists in a nationwide search for a talented personality with a big dream to have their own TV show on Oprah’s OWN Network. His pitch was featured first on her preview reel and he was personally endorsed by Oprah himself. In 2016, he was featured in a Forbes article on mentorship and how it’s helped him become an accomplished entrepreneur.
As well, he’s completed personal excellence education courses from the Baron Mastery Institute, including Authentic Speaker’s Academy for Leaders and C.O.R.E. Affluence System for Leadership.
All this is why Chris Ryan isn’t just another Realtor. Whether it be his professional career or his philanthropy work, Chris’ life-long dedication and passion is to help people and give back in as many ways as he can.
