Ryan was born and raised in Dallas, TX, and has served as a Mortgage Loan Originator for the past two decades.  He began his mortgage career shortly after moving to Austin, Texas in 1995, where he currently resides.  

Having experienced the booms and busts of the housing industry over the last 20 years, he’s developed tremendous experience on how to navigate the mortgage market and ensure his clients always receive the best care and attention, regardless of the environment. 

“I pride myself on doing what’s right for my clients, ensuring they’re getting the best deal and making the best financial decision… even when that means referring them to another lender, or showing them a different financial path that doesn’t involve my services.  Do right by your clients, and everything else will take care of itself.”

In recent years, Ryan has worked hard to build an entire team dedicated to the success of our clients, in addition to continuing to originate loans directly.  He leads the vision of the Leahy Lending Team (powered by HomeTown Lenders®)  , and instills his same passion for client satisfaction to each and every team member.

When not helping a client buy their first home, vacation home, or dream home, you’ll often find Ryan on Lake Austin or in Rockport, TX doing what he loves; fishing and enjoying family and friends.
