I worked with Ryan in purchasing my recent fourplex acquisition. He was the best Real Estate Agent I have worked with. He understands what an investor is looking for and knows the Phoenix area inside and out. I can’t recommend him enough. I will definitely work with Ryan again when I am ready to purchase my next investment property. – Chris B.
Ryan and his team including, Drew Madigan, helped me secure my first investment property in the Phoenix area. As a new investor and future landlord, I valued the knowledge and experience of an agent that also invests in real estate. Ryan was able to walk me through all the steps and provide valuable insight from his wealth of experience as both an investor and agent. The service was second to none and anytime I needed anything during the home buying process, Ryan and his team were just a quick call or text away. Ryan and Drew were always on the same page and seamlessly worked to together to provide a wonderful home buying experience. I would highly recommend Ryan and Drew to both residential customers and investors alike. - Peter K.
If you are in the market for an investment property in the Phoenix Metro area, Ryan Swan is THE person you should be talking to! I recently purchased my first investment property with Ryan as my guide throughout the whole process and I am truly lucky to have reached out to him and retained his services. From spending over an hour on the phone with me giving me in depth analysis on the different neighborhoods (since I am a long-distance investor), to setting up and MLS portal for me after we defined exactly what I was looking for, to giving me a local investor’s take on the different properties I was considering making offers on, then going through a full day of inspection on the offer I was able to get under contract (after about a month of searching), then ultimately helping me negotiate down the list price, suggesting local lenders and closing without a hitch, Ryan was there every step of the way. I couldn’t dream of a better experience. – Ike E.
Where do we start? First and foremost, Ryan is an excellent person. Finding a trustworthy, patient and wise realtor set the tone for an unparalleled buying-experience. As you'll see in the other reviews, Ryan has excellent knowledge of the area and shrewd negotiation skills. Perhaps most important, is that he cares about the right fit for you as a person/family. He is a great listener and custom-tailors his approach to finding properties and areas that are suitable to your goals as a buyer. My wife and I found exactly what we wanted; a home in an appreciating-area that is suitable to become a cash-flowing asset when we move out. Throughout the process we felt supported and were made aware of every upcoming issue - ensuring we were prepared for each step of the process. We were comfortable running by all questions we had with Ryan and could always trust a sincere & researched answer. For us, choosing Ryan resulted in a teammate and mentor with the goal of equipping us for success in our real-estate goals. We are grateful to have a great property, a sincere friend and wise mentor. - Charlie T.
It was our first multifamily purchase and Ryan’s insight, advice and guidance were invaluable. He helped us find the property off-market and guided us through the entire process. He was just great to work with and we highly recommended him! – Lella B
As a Phoenix native, Ryan not only knows every neighborhood and local, but uses that knowledge to negotiate his deals. He should be trusted by first-time buyers and experienced homeowners alike due to his expertise in the buying process, his responsiveness and attention to detail, and his record of successful closes. I’m glad I chose Mr. Swan as my realtor for purchasing my first home, and will be using him again when it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. – Jeff K.
Ryan was recommended to me to help find and buy a new home. He listened and asked helpful questions regarding the many items I was looking for and wanting to avoid in a new home and its location. Even though I was looking in a wide area of the Valley, he was always patient and available, courteous and perceptive during my search. He was continually refining the search for me as we saw homes and he asked me what I liked and didn’t like about a home. He helped me actually enjoy the whole process from start to finish and was always professional and educated about the facts and aspects of the purchases process. He was at my side and had my back in the negotiation, inspection and closing process. I really liked his title company and the person in it he suggested I work with. I was glad to have had him represent me and I love my new home and location. He followed up and even helped me feel settled after the sale. I would highly recommend Ryan Swan to others. – EAP
Ryan was referred to us by a work colleague after failing to find a Realtor we trusted to help us find our perfect home. Ryan went above and beyond every experience we had dealing with Realtors. He was extremely professional and was more interested in what we wanted for our perfect home and community. He listened; he advised, he showed us relevant property (many — all across AZ), and he let us decide what was best for us. I’ve dealt with several Realtors in California and a few now in Arizona; and I may be dating myself, but I consider Ryan to a “Top Gun” realtor. If you want a knowledgeable, caring, professional, then I would highly recommend Ryan Swan as your realtor. – Vince G.
I would highly recommend Ryan to anybody interested in investing in the Phoenix area. As out of town investors, Ryan took care of all of our needs, from locating an appropriate property, to every details of the inspection and the closing process. He recommended professionals and went out of his way to make sure that we felt comfortable and understood everything that was going on throughout the entire process. As investors who don’t live in the area, I cannot emphasize how important it is to have someone you can rely on and call at any hour of the day. I worked with many agents before I found Ryan and none were as considerate, reliable and helpful as Ryan was. – Shlomo & Nadav
Stop your search and hire Ryan. I started connecting with agents a few months ago and was open to any deal at all in Atlanta where I lived or Phoenix, where I could move. I got in touch with a few real estate agents and wholesalers, and most of them promised to return calls but never did or just set up lame MLS searches and barely followed up. Ryan responded to my initial email immediately and talked me through various investment opportunities including multi-families, house-hacking, student rentals, etc, set up and refined great searches for all options, spent hours on the phone with me analyzing why properties would or would not be a good fit, and more. I decided on a live-in flip to start, and Ryan showed me the house remotely via some great professional-style photos and helped me submit a competitive offer, negotiate, and close from across the country. Ryan knows real estate from his own experience flipping and managing his own rentals, and he definitely knows the Phoenix area having spent all his life here — his recommendations for the best dentist and breakfast burrito really hit the mark. My first deal was so easy, and I’m really appreciative of all the advice he gave me. He’s not just a rock star professional, he’s a great person — he’s easy to get along with, fun to work with, and incredibly thoughtful (he stocked my new fridge with the essentials, changed light bulbs when he knew I would be pulling in from out of town late at night, and made minor fixes before I even knew issues would annoy me). I’m so glad to have found Ryan and am already working with him on offers for my next deal. To many more! – Melissa N.
