Born and raised in northeast Ohio, Sean grew up spending as much time as possible outdoors. When he wasn’t playing sports, he could be found alongside his grandpa fishing local lakes or spending time with family and friends at their rural camp in western Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest. In his early teens, Sean completed his hunter education course, taking the first steps of a lifelong journey as a dedicated conservationist and avid sportsman.
After college, Sean’s professional life started when he moved to Columbus, Ohio. No longer bound by time commitment of training and playing collegiate soccer, his free time outside of work was completely dedicated to hunting whitetail deer, waterfowl, and seeking solace through all things outdoor related. Always willing to introduce newcomers to the outdoors, he has mentored dozens of new hunters and has taught several classes as a certified hunter education instructor for the state of Ohio.
Sean’s lifelong interest in real estate and recreational property was the catalyst to pursue his realtor’s license to specialize in helping others find the property of their dreams. With an extremely successful career in sales, marketing, and business development, coupled with several years working in the hunting and conservation space, Sean brings a variety of valuable skills to United Country Real Estate.

Ryan finds working independently a strong plus to his working style. He gains satisfaction in independent strategizing and executing a plan to fruition benefiting both the company and his clients. However, opportunities to work with a team, as lead or participant, he finds are great ways to encourage creative thinking resulting in greater productivity.
Ryan’s “client-centered”, easy-going style of working has been essential to developing good client relations and contributes to the success of United Country Realtors and Auctions. He is a member of the Columbus Board of Realtors and will soon have his Broker’s License.
He is best at seeing the “big picture” then backing into the details of a client-focused strategy. He enjoys the challenge of helping clients envision the possibilities and creating a working plan for their property regardless of the property size. He believes all clients deserve to be treated with respect, feel they are being heard and expect their buying or selling needs to be met with professionalism and integrity.
One of Ryan’s many interests includes flying camera drones, which he incorporates in his business. He continues to seek out and improve ways to better photograph properties with a drone to highlight the best aspects of a property, especially in remote areas. As a life-long resident of central Ohio, Ryan is knowledgeable in both cities and rural areas.
In addition to drone flying for business and pleasure, Ryan enjoys rock climbing, camping, primitive hiking, lake fishing, cooking for friends and family, and especially, leisurely exploring the beaches on Anna Maria Island, Florida.
