About Us

Texas’ Trusted Home Financing Team

Founded by Ryan Leahy, the Leahy Lending Team has been proudly serving Texas clients since 2002. We’re based in the heart of Austin, Texas, and have the ability to serve clients throughout the state, and several other states.

Through his hard work, dedication to client satisfaction, uncanny ability to structure a deal, and relentless efforts to always close on time, Ryan quickly became a top mortgage loan originator in Austin, Texas. He built his business and reputation through his amazing client base and strong network of referral partners. 

Ryan and the Leahy Lending Team have been recognized as one of Texas’ top home financing producers by The Austin Business Journal. Leahy Lending has also received the Five Star mortgage Professional award every year for nearly a decade. 

In 2020, Leahy Lending experienced exceptional growth, blossoming to 30+ team members. The team helped more than 900 families with their home mortgage needs and surpassed company benchmarks for volume and on-time closings. This explosive growth allowed Leahy Lending to join with HomeTown Lenders® in 2021, allowing us to take our loan services to the next level. 

With hundreds of 5-star reviews on Google and Yelp, our track record of client success speaks for itself. Now, powered by HomeTown Lenders®, Leahy Lending is 100% confident we’ll provide even better service and value than ever before. 

Our Vision

Change the World of Those We Touch

Our vision is simple: It is our responsibility to materially change the world of those we touch. We pride ourselves on communication, expectations, and satisfaction. This means helping you buy your first home. Structuring an investment property loan to grow your future. Helping you cash-out equity to pay off debts, pay for college, or for other reasons.

It also means ensuring our team members are equipped to work hard and be successful, while strongly encouraging and pushing a healthy balance of work and life that is so hard to find nowadays.

We understand through our success, we can help others in the community that we may not have met. The Leahy Lending Team believes strongly in giving back to our neighbors, and regularly participates in donations to local charities. This includes the Boy Scouts of America (several team members, including Ryan Leahy, are Eagle Scouts), Community First, Austin Pets Alive, The Capital Food Bank, Life Austin, Trotter House, and others.

We appreciate what we’ve been blessed with, and know that none of this is possible without YOU… our clients and partners. Thanks for continuing to return to us, time and time again. Thanks for introducing us to your friends, family, coworkers, and clients. We welcome your call any time, and look forward to helping you again soon!

  • 5 star review  My friend suggested Ryan Leahy's lending team as we were first time home buyers. From the initial stages of introductory discussions, we found Ryan to be very patient, prompt, attentive & responsive to any questions or queries we had. During entire Home loan process, he and his team was always on top of everything, guiding us through with proper due diligence expected. Due to this we were able to close on time even while on tight schedule. Ryan is a great person, very professional & pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Ryan Leahy & his team !!

  • 5 star review  Ryan, Jay and the entire team at were BEYOND helpful during my refinancing process. They made everything so easy for me and my co-signers (who live across the country!) and I could not be happier with the outcome. They also connected me with a home insurance agent as I needed a new plan and I was able to save even more money! Saved big bucks during a tough time and now I have my go-to folks! Thank you Ryan, Jay and the entire team!

    thumb Anika Kleingartner
  • 5 star review  Ryan was absolutely terrific to work with. I initially contacted him after doing research on mortgage brokers. He was very attentive to my long-term real estate plan and offered his expert opinion about how better to execute it. During the loan process, he and his team were on top of everything, and Ryan was available to answer all my questions along the way. We had a quick turnaround to close on the property and Ryan and his team made it happen! On the closing day, he called to congratulate me. He is a great person to work with, very professional, and extremely personable.

    thumb Trevor Walker
  • 5 star review  Ryan and his team are simply top notch. From pre-approval to closing we have received nothing but stellar service and frequent updates. As first time home buyers, we were not sure what we were getting into, but Ryan helped us figure it out quickly and easily. Even our realtor said that Ryan and his team were the easiest lenders they have ever worked with. I will definitely be recommending Ryan to my friends and family.
