There is a lot of buzz out there today about the current “seller’s market.” However, the reality is that buyers still have leverage & utilizing that leverage can save you thousands. Please read what my clients say about the buying process:
Ryan handled the sale of my previous home, and helped me find a new place. I cannot say enough good things about him. Buying and selling a home can be an extremely stressful and arduous experience. He made the whole process a breeze. He is knowledgable, professional, and made himself available every step of the way. I intend to recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks for all your help Ryan!!

Ryan was extremely helpful all the way throughout the home buying process. As a first time home buyer, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. However, after speaking with Ryan it was very clear that he was going to be a great resource. His connections made finding a lender, inspector, electrician, etc., very easy and they were all great at their jobs.
Ryan also took the time to understand my needs and wants and searched high and low for houses that I would like. He was not pushy, and when I came across a house that I was on the fence about, he said to trust my gut and let this one pass if I didn’t love it because other houses would be available. This shows that he truly is looking to serve the customer and give them what they want, instead of trying to make a quick buck and selling a house that didn’t fit the customers needs.
Ryan also knew the metro area real estate market very well and was able to give good estimates as to how much a specific house should sell for, based on the quality of the house and the neighborhood. He is an extremely friendly and knowledgable real estate agent and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy a home.
Ryan is an excellent Realtor. He made our home buying experience effortless. We would definitely recommend him to anyone. We have purchased and sold many homes over the years, and Ryan is the best Realtor by far! He responded quickly to any questions we had. He always addressed our concerns fully and never left us with any doubts.

Ryan Cole was very professional and approachable throughout our experience as first-time home buyers. He was able to handle details that were out of the ordinary with efficiency and skill. So glad we had him on our team!
Eleanor & Jacob, Minneapolis
Ryan was incredibly helpful and very involved from the time we barely started the search process until the time (and even after) we moved into the home! He’s very knowledgeable and knows what to look for both inside and outside the home for signs that it’s in good condition and has been well cared for, which was very important to us. Thanks to Ryan, we found the perfect home for us, and felt taken care of throughout out the process. I highly recommend him!
Renee & Ricardo, Richfield
He is very thorough and throughout the process has gone above and beyond simply buying and selling homes. He recommended or found contractors when necessary, helped us create and maintain a budget and schedule in regards to projects at our new home, and kept everything else on track in what would otherwise have been an overwhelming summer. Best of all, he found us our dream home and we just moved in! We couldn’t have gone through what we did without him and will absolutely use him with any residential real estate decisions going forward.

I have a new respect for real estate agents after working with Ryan. Ryan found us a new home and then sold our existing home within 3 days. From the start I really got the feeling from him that he wanted to help us find the RIGHT house for us, not just make another sale. He went out of his way to research and find background info on homes we looked at (like finding out building permit info etc.). He never shied away from being honest and telling us that a house didn’t seem to meet what we were looking for and to keep looking, which really helped build trust where other agents would push to make the sale. He then helped us get our existing home ready for sale, on the market within a few days, and sold in 3 days later. Where he really shined was in all the behind the scenes work he did, from negotiating pricing, to helping coordinate photos, inspections and such. The behind the scenes work was eye opening to me. Ryan built for us a sense of trust and confidence in him and his work that I was so thankful for and I don’t thin kI would have felt with other agents.

Great to work worth. Gave great insight into the housing market and after a few showings truly understands what you want as a buyer. I will continue to use him in the future for home purchases and recommend him to any home buyer. Being a first time home buyer he made my process smooth and completely stress free.
Ryan was referred to us by a friend and we are super thankful. He did a great job hearing what we liked best about our first few homes and, in no time, we found OUR house. He was quick to help us shift into the negotiation phase. It’s nice to be able to say we got a “great deal” in this market. We highly recommend Ryan!
-Brooke & Bryan, Eagan
Ryan truly made buying our first home a straightforward, easy to understand process. He was THE critical factor in finding, negotiating, and closing our home. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable about the market, the initial buying process, negotiation tactics, and the closing process. He also has invaluable insight around maintaining your new home and making your home your own after purchase, and went above and beyond in helping us understand both the home buying and contracting market environments. In addition to the above, we also had a lot of fun – which was a product of Ryan’s ability to work hard while simultaneously making a relatively overwhelming event feel like an enjoyable one. Ryan – Thank you again for your time and effort, we could not be more appreciative.
-Tina & Adam, Maple Grove
We would never have been able to come in with a competitive offer on the property we just closed on without Ryan’s expertise – his ability to sniff out what the seller was truly interested in lead him to suggest putting an offer in with a rent back scenario which was no skin off our back given the situation and won us the deal! I’d highly recommend Ryan as your realtor. His thoroughness, willingness to admit and research anything he didn’t know and background in various other sectors of the industry (financial, etc.) are top notch and professional.
-Tara & Jordan, Minneapolis
Ryan is an outstanding realtor! He was exceptionally knowledgeable in helping us through both buying and selling, getting us a good price on both ends. He is very strong at negotiating and we were able to sell our home very quickly. He was available anytime we needed him for anything. We have worked with several realtors before and he was the best we’ve ever had. We give him the highest recommendation!
-Kelly & Matt, Minnetonka
Ryan was well educated on our market and came to our home well prepared. Ryan was responsive and we appreciated his negotiation skills through the buying process. There were a lot of options in Minnetonka and Ryan was able to take our list of “must have” and generate a quality list of available properties. My wife and I have bought and sold several homes and this was by far the best experience we have ever had. We worked with Ryan on both the buying and selling of our properties during this transaction. Ryan sold our existing residence in 30 days and we had 3 offers on the table within 3 days of listing the property. Thank you Ryan!!
-Brandon & Danielle, Minnetonka
Ryan is awesome to work with. As a first time home buyer he made the process smooth and not stressful. Very knowledgeable, pleasant, and enthusiastic. He’s quick and efficient, the house I purchased was viewed around 6pm and the offer was in just a few hours later. Ryan’s work is his passion and it shows as he was accessible during his vacation as well as shortly after the birth of his child. 10/10 would buy a house with Ryan as my realtor again and will recommend his expertise to friends and family.
-Victor, St Louis Park
Ryan went above and beyond to ensure I found the perfect home. He was patient while I explored several (very different) neighborhoods and ultimately pointed out the house I ended up with. He is proactive and on-top of all the details which made buying a house a pleasure and not a chore. I would highly recommend Ryan to everyone.
-Sally, Golden Valley
Ryan Cole was very helpful with selling our old house, all the while helping us find our new home. My wife and I were very impressed with his work ethic, knowledge of different neighborhoods, negotiation skills for selling and buying. We more than recommend Ryan Cole to anyone needing a real estate professional. After experiencing home buying with Ryan, we couldn’t imagine having used anyone else. A great realtor!
