Ryan McCann: Cleveland’s most awarded real estate agent

An industry veteran who sold his first property in 1998, Ryan McCann built his reputation in the bayside area and parlayed it into his present stature as one of Queensland’s – if not Australia’s – most successful real estate agents.

In his long and illustrious career as an agent, Ryan McCann’s friendly nature and natural talent for the competitive world of real estate have seen him break many sales records and win numerous industry awards.

“If you look after your clients, your career takes care of itself.”

Even after being named the No.1 real estate agent in Queensland 2016 & 2017, No.1 in Thornlands and being ranked in the top 5 agents in the country, Ryan McCann has never been one for believing his own hype. From his rookie days, he was taught that, at the end of the day, in any property transaction, it’s all about the client – not your commission and certainly not your ego. He says remembering those wise words has been key to his success. Asked whether his million-dollar clients are any different from the first-home buyers who’ve scraped together a deposit, Ryan McCann can honestly say not at all.

“It’s an emotional process and everyone’s got the same motivations; they want to move on to the next stage in their life. For example, I got a huge buzz out of getting the highest price for Raby Bay in 2016, which was $2.975 million under the hammer. And I get the same buzz out of that as I do selling an apartment to a first-time buyer for $232,000. The people are not different at all.”

The Ryan McCann approach

Ryan McCann has a way of establishing an instant rapport and building long-term relationships with his clients, who end up buying and selling property with him again and again as they climb the property ladder. They keep coming back simply because they’ve had a good client experience and know he’ll look after them.

They appreciate his down-to-earth, approachable nature and endless enthusiasm for the process. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Ryan has a knack for getting clients the results they want. No wonder he is the market leader in the bayside area.

When asked what makes him different from other agents, Ryan McCann says:

“I think I care more about the results and the client experience than most agents probably would. I do take the results I achieve personally. I genuinely do pride myself on getting the ultimate best price for my seller and I just don’t like coming second.”

Love of the local market

As a young 20-year-old just three years out of Ormiston College, Ryan McCann took to the real estate industry like a duck to water. He was fortunate enough to have natural sales ability, luck on his side and industry-leading mentors who taught him everything they knew. Ryan sees property sales as more of a ‘vocation’ than a career choice.

He bought his first house at 19 years of age and was the youngest person to buy a house in the sought after waterfront estate of Raby Bay.

During his tenure in real estate, Ryan McCann has consistently been honoured with industry awards based on outstanding sales results and career longevity.
