Ryan grew up in Augusta, GA. Upon graduating high school, he joined the Coast Guard, where he supervised a boat crew performing Search & Rescue, and Law Enforcement. While stationed in Elizabeth City, NC Ryan met his wife, Michelle. After his service, he became a law enforcement officer in Augusta and obtained his real estate license, investing in residential homes. The birth of their first child resulted in a move to Coeur d¿Alene, where he continued to sell real estate. During the downturn, Ryan became an investigator for the WA Department of Revenue, which moved his family to Spokane. He has continued his real estate career with Century21 in Spokane.
Michelle grew up in Northern CA where she attained her A.A. She then enlisted in the Coast Guard where she was trained as an Aviation Maintenance Technician. During her service, she met her husband, Ryan. This development caused her to choose between a career in the service or being a wife & mother. She happily chose the latter, leading her family to move to CDA, Idaho. After years of raising their child, she decided to join her husband in working in real estate. They joined Century21 Beutler & Associates because of the company¿s strong mentoring, team dynamics, tools, and support to help them give the highest customer service level to their clients.
In her spare time, Michelle enjoys nature & animal photography, hiking, canoeing on the Little Spokane River, & motorcycle rides with her husband. Ryan is an avid fan of MLB baseball, MotoGP motorcycle racing, classic cars, and the outdoors. He aspires to participate in summer track days at Kent, Washington¿s Pacific Raceways, and solo hiking the more obscure parts of the Colville National Forest. Michelle has volunteer experience with the UGM Crises Shelter for Women and Children. Ryan volunteers with Spokane School District¿s Citizen¿s Advisory Committee and holds a leadership position within the religious community.
