We can't say enough good things about Ryan and his team. Ryan has helped us purchase and sell our home. We couldn't be happier. We highly recommended Ryan to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. Ryan and his team have gone above and beyond to make our move to Chicago as smooth as possible. Thank you for all of your help! You have truly made it easy.

As first time home buyers my wife and I were green to real estate, yet Ryan and his staff took the time to answer every single question, take every call, respond to emails we sent at 11:30pm on Sunday evenings and even showed my wife and I the same home twice on numerous occasions due to our conflicting schedules. He helped us understand the process clear as day and I would confidently recommend him to anyone.

Without Ryan and Jennifer I would have been lost. As a first time home buyer I had very little knowledge. Ryan explained it all! The whole process was a success and I would highly recommend First Class Realty. You won't find a realtor as thorough and as professional!

On our purchase we faced a competitive bidding situation. Ryan knew how to structure the offer so the seller wanted to negotiate with us rather than the other party. On the selling side he gave us excellent advice on how to stage our house. Then his photographer produced a video tour that was better than anything we have seen from any other broker. He helped find a buyer f in less than a week. When we had 2 bids, he skilfully negotiated with the prospective buyers resulting in an excellent offer that closed the deal. Less ... More

I met Ryan after seeing his real estate sign at a townhouse that I was interested in. I had not placed my home on the market and I was unsure of what to do. Ryan met me at my home within a couple of days of viewing the townhouse on the internet. He was understanding and within days my home was photographed and on the market. Ryan sold my home quickly and also assisted me with the purchase of the townhouse. He was helpful in making these transactions occur quickly and smoothly.

Ryan always called potential home buyers right away and showed the property in a timely manner. My property was a very unique process and Ryan was very knowledgeable and had many resources to close the deal. He worked with my mortgage broker and closing attorneys very well. 5 Star Experience! Thank you Ryan

We met Ryan early in our process. We were looking to cut our commute time and had a house to sell. Ryan helped us pick an agent more familiar with the location of our previous home. He helped us to understand the ins-and-outs and helped us avoid some properties that we liked but may have been tough to sell down the line. We ended up purchasing a new construction and he helped us negotiate some terms that we didn't even know were important - like making sure the builder was responsible for germination of the lawn and that the topcoat on our driveway needed to wait a year for everything to settle. He and his team were great to work with. We'd definitely recommend Ryan. Less ... More

We had been trying to sell our home on our own without a lot of luck. We hired Ryan to help out because the home was pretty unique. It had been in the family for a long time and had a lot of sentimental value. Ryan kept us informed about everything and handled some of the challenges that came up. When some of the negotiations got a little tough, Ryan helped us understand how to best handle them and when we ran into an issue with our septic Ryan took care of that, too. We were able to sell the house and join the rest of our family in AZ. Thanks, Ryan. Less ... More

When I met Ryan, I wasn't sure what I wanted. My search area was gigantic and really had no direction. With Ryan's help, he asked a lot of questions and helped me define the area I needed to be looking in. He also introduced me to the thought of owning a multi-family property, which I'd never considered. He taught me how to analyze the property and ran a 5-year projection, which had me hooked. I ended up buying a 2-family and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Without Ryan's help, I would probably still be looking. I'll definitely call Ryan when I'm ready to buy my next place. Less ... More

My fiancé and I probably spent more time working with Ryan that most clients. We looked at over 40 houses over a period of about 2 years. Ryan was great to deal with and his team took care of everything. We submitted all kinds of offers and often dealt with lots of competition because I was looking for a fixer-upper. In the end, all of those homes were in high demand, so he helped us find a great home in a neighborhood near the schools where we'll probably be for a long time. Ryan goes above and beyond for his clients. It's not everyday that you find a real estate agent who will schedule a showing on a Sunday afternoon with less than a hours notice ( on his bicycle).

Our house had expired from the market with another agent. We had only had a handful of showings and no offers. We hired Ryan and he brought his team in. He advised us on the market and how to position the home and his team helped us get our home ready. We got some tips on staging the home properly and we did everything Ryan's team asked us to do. We went from a handful of showings in 90 days to over 30 showings and a great offer in under 30. It was awesome. Thanks, Ryan.

We were referred to Ryan by a work colleague. Our family had grown and we needed more space but we had some pretty specific criteria on what we were looking for and where we wanted to be. Ryan helped my wife and I get on the same page, which was a great help. We found a great house to start with, but the inspection didn't go well and we couldn't come to terms so Ryan recommended we walk away. We ended up finding a better house so it worked out in the end. I was out of the country for work while everything was going on and Ryan's team handled all the details. What a great help. We'd recommend Ryan to all our family and friends. Less ... More

Ryan helped me purchase my first home. I was new to the home buying process so Ryan was really helpful. I was originally from the north shore and looking to move south so I counted on Ryan to show me areas I could afford and suited my needs. Ryan kept me focused on key features of each home I was interested in, highlighted the Pros and Cons of each house and never pushed me into a home I didn't feel comfortable in. I'd definitely recommend Ryan and his team in your next home purchase or sale. -Joe Less ... More

Ryan was referred to us from a real estate attorney we wanted to work with. One of the best decisions we ever made was to go ahead and work with Ryan and Jennifer. Right from the start, Ryan was very professional and you can tell that he knows what he is talking about. We worked with a different agent before Ryan and she was no where near his level of expertise. After looking at several homes, we found one we loved and Ryan walked us through the entire process. He puts together an impressive analysis with comparable sales in the area and what he believes from market conditions is a high and low price for the house. Since we were also first-time homebuyers, we had tons of questions. Jennifer is such a great asset to his team, always on top of things and very responsive to email and questions. If were we to ever buy/sell a house in the future, we would 110% go with Ryan and Jennifer. Thanks for all your help in finding our home. Less ... More

We hired Ryan after our previous agent wasn't able to help us sell our home. We'd actually been talking to Ryan for a while - he wasn't pushy and was very helpful. When he listed out\r home, he had his professional photographer come in - we were thrilled with the marketing that was done because we'd put so much into renovating our home. It came out beautifully. We had some issues with our title and Ryan was very helpful in guiding things along. He actually sold the house multiple times for more than we originally had it listed. The title issue really made it difficult but Ryan got it done. He even took the time to stick around and play basketball with our son - we never felt rushed. Thanks Ryan! Less ... More

I listed my home in Taunton in March of 2014. Although Ryan wasn't overly familiar with the market there, he did extensive research and presented us with a very comprehensive analysis of the current and expected market. He gave expert advise on strategy, expectations and timing. Being somewhat of a control freak, it was difficult relinquishing control of the process, but Ryan proved his expertise at every turn, and quickly gained my trust. The house sold in exactly the time frame that he expected, and he quickly worked with us in finding a new home. I highly recommend Ryan's team! His assistant Jennifer is one of the most organized and helpful people we've had the pleasure of working with. Less ... More

Ryan has a motto of "Expect First Class". Well that is what you get when dealing with Ryan and his staff. Ryan brings an enormous amount of professionalism to his craft. His team provides excellent communication and Ryan and his team do a wonderful job in helping you through the sales process from start to finish. No matter the question, Ryan and his team were always there to provide the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure my family was comfortable with the process and explanation. Ryan and his team provide a straight forward, no nonsense approach when discussing upgrades, staging and pricing. Ryan and his team ensured that we had all of the necessary information to make an informed, fact based decision when it came to selling our house.

Ryan is very knowledgeable with his profession. He understands the current market condition and makes sure you understand it as well. This way you know you know what you are getting into. Ex: Is it a good time to sell/buy in the current market. He also is very patient. I looked just using his online tool for six months before I went to see a house. He can be hands on or hands off. At first I went to see the open houses on my own since I didn't need him to be there. However, if I wanted him to come with me to see a house, he did. He explains the P&S agreement better than a lawyer. He also had a checklist for all the things I needed to do before listing the house. He also came with me to the close and went over the HUD. But before that he sent me a quick video that explains what I would need and should bring. He also can explain most if not all the documents that are in a close process on the buy and sale side. In my recent sale, I almost wanted to ask the buyer if he wanted to borrow my agent to help him understand some of the forms he was signing. I recommend Ryan to anyone. Less ... More

Ryan took the time to show us many different houses and was very accommodating with our busy schedules. We actually put in offers on (3) different houses until we got an offer that was accepted. He made sure we didn?t put in any offers that were too high if the house wasn?t worth it. His main goal was getting us the right house at the right price and after what seemed like forever we finally got it. We will definitely be using him again in the future!

We recently listed our home with Ryan Cook. His business philosophy "Expect First Class" never fell short. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism in all aspects of bringing our property to the market and negotiating a quick sale. We are ecstatic with the results. Following his lead we made necessary upgrades, and staged the home both inside and outside. His network of contacts teamed to allow this process to meet our budget. What really secured the target buyer was the home design photography layout and high-tech marketing supplied by Ryan. From start to closing Ryan was always accessible and prepared to address the tasks at hand. We sold our home the first weekend on the market and received a buy in excess to the listing price. Thank you Ryan. "We got First Class!" Less ... More

Ryan's belief is "everybody should expect first class service" - and first class service is exactly what you get with Ryan. As a first time homebuyer I was grateful for Ryan's guidance, knowledge, and professionalism, and was so touched by his patience and thoughtfulness each step of the way. Ryan connected me to 'the best of the best' in lenders, inspectors, and lawyers - and from our first meeting to the closing working with Ryan (and his wonderful partner Janet) felt natural and easy. Every step of the way I was grateful to be in his good hands. The true test of any professional relationship is the question "would you refer this person to your friends and family?" and my answer is 100% yes. Do yourself a favor and call Ryan - he is truly first class! Less ... More

Ryan has helped me purchase two properties in the past year. In addition to his negotiation skills, Ryan?s analysis of investment properties is first-rate. Most importantly, the purchase of a property involves many players ? sellers, agents, lawyers, etc. Call Ryan when you?re ready to put someone on the team who will set the bar for professionalism and execution.

Ryan was an excellent buyer's agent for my wife and I in purchasing our first home. He accompanied us on over 40(!) showings over a 1.5 year period, showing patience and professionalism throughout. Living in Boston but having grown up in RI, we focused our search on towns with easy access to both (mainly Foxboro, Mansfield, and North Attleboro). Ryan was instrumental in showing us desirable areas within these towns. He worked to educate us and was understanding as we frequently shifted our criteria during the first 6 months. As time went on, our search was constrained by the lack of inventory on the market in late 2012/early 2013. Even as we decided to increase our budget, Ryan advocated conservatism and caution. He wanted what was best for us, and repeatedly advised against going outside our financial comfort zone. Within a couple minutes of meeting Ryan, it's clear that he is an intelligent pro who loves what he does.We enjoyed spending time with him and are very happy with our new home. Highly reccommended!

Ryan was so professional from the moment he stepped into our home until the closing. He went above and beyond with the showcasing of our home. We had 34 showings in 30 days. He was always available for our questions, concerns and anything else that might have come up. If we ever decide to buy another property I wouldn't hesitate to call Ryan to help us out. Not only was he our realtor, but I feel he has become a friend.

Ryan was extremely helpful in guiding my wife and I through the process as we sought to buy our first home. From providing a comprehensive guide to buying a home (which we frequently consulted even months into the process), to being able to quickly identify faults with prospective properties, to responding to our questions in no time, Ryan's years of experience in the field removed any unpredictability from buying a home. Ryan's professional attitude and accommodating approach shone through by making himself available to view homes at whatever time was convenient for my wife and me. Additionally his willingness to embrace today's technologies helped us zip through the final paperwork and made it possible for us to close in a rather tight time frame. Since Ryan makes it quite clear that the client is priority number one, and since he proved himself valuable at every step along the way, I would be pleased to work with him in the future and I highly recommend him to anyone else looking to buy a home.

He created a wonderful portfolio and video of my condo, which displayed my property beautifully. He worked with me in trying to create new ways to market my condo. He went above and beyond the norm by setting up a catered open house with a delightful chef who created appetizers with a cranberry theme to highlight our nearby cranberry bogs.
