What’s new in the industry?

Ryan McCann enjoys mentoring more junior real estate agents, hosting training sessions and keynote speaking. As someone who has enjoyed a long and varied career in real estate, Ryan McCann has plenty of thoughts on the industry and what it takes to succeed.

After working for Cleveland real estate agencies from a young age and achieving great things, Ryan McCann acknowledged the industry can be challenging.

‘I work really hard. I work long hours. I think most agents out there putting their heart and soul on the line would say the same thing. It’s a hard game – good money when things are going well – but hard work.’

Ryan McCann began First National Real Estate Cleveland in 2015, and the agency has gone from strength to strength since Day One. It is now ranked the number 2 sales office in Queensland for First National Real Estate.
