Background & Experience

Ryan McElveen is a Real Estate Broker and serves as an Advisor at NAI Koella | RM Moore.

With more than 13 years as a real estate broker, McElveen has an extensive background in sales, leasing, and creative financing of commercial and residential properties.

Ryan started his career in the industry in 2008 as a licensed real estate broker in California as a sole proprietor after finishing his baccalaureate at California State University, Northridge, with degrees in both Real Estate and Finance.

In 2010, after incorporating his brokerage and obtaining a Master's in Business Administration from Pepperdine University, Ryan had a team of 15 to 20 salespersons actively engaging clients and was focused primarily on acting as principal in seller-financed real estate transactions in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Washington.

In 2015, Ryan had expanded his brokerage into Nevada and Washington and was actively pursuing transactions in each state until he joined MGR Real Estate in 2018 as a Broker Associate to better focus his talents and partner with regional commercial real estate brokers in California.

In 2020, Ryan moved to Tennessee to focus on becoming a part of Celebrate Recovery at Faith Promise and to be closer to his father and family in Kingston. He later became affiliated with NAI Koella | RM Moore the following year.
