Ryan Runge

  • Ryan listed and sold my home

      Ryan and his team just helped us closed another transaction. The purchase took longer than we anticipated due to property title complications. Ryan and Lisa helped us with a thorough investigation. Thank you so much again for your help.

    • Ryan helped me buy a home

        Ryan (and his amazing team) were there for us 100% while we were trying to buy a house in what turned out to be the toughest housing market in decade. We were out of state buyers, but Ryan made it easy for us by doing countless virtual tours. He had a knack for identifying potential issues with each house, as well as the features that would later contribute to a great resale value. He made himself available to answer any questions we had throughout the process, and never pushed us to do anything we weren't comfortable with. We are very grateful to Ryan and his team for all of their help and expertise. We loved working with Ryan and would absolutely do so again!

      • I don't even know where to begin! We went through 2 other agents and 5 months of losing house after house we bid on because of poor advice. The owner of our my husband's company gave us Ryan's number and said he is the best. But with a small budget, we thought he would be out of our league and not work as hard for us. We couldn't have been more wrong!! We met at a coffee shop just to check him out. He listened to every word we said. When we were done talking he spent a couple minutes on his laptop finding us exactly what we were looking for. Ryan came prepared to show us a house right then and there. Ryan had the experience and knowledge to give accurate bid advice that would compete with cash offers yet be well below value, giving us instant equity if accepted. Contracts were drawn up that night and we got the house! Let me tell you it's after Ryan's job was long done that we found out how much he cares and how hard he works for his clients. We ran into a couple snags with some issues having nothing to do with Ryan but he ALWAYS answered his phone and helped us through everything... when he didn't have to. Ryan was the best thing that came out of the whole thing! He always stood by us; quick to respond to every request. When buying a home you hope everything goes smooth and you have to trust your agent because there is so much an average home buyer just won't know. On the rare chance that something does pop up, you need to have an agent like Ryan Runge in your court. He will go to bat for you every time! The FIRST person we want over to our house when it's all done, is our FRIEND Ryan Runge!

      • I have gone through about 13 agents since 2009. Some agents, after asked about the particular linoleum floor, will tell you they are the best floors they've seen in years. Anything to get you to put the offer in so they can collect their commission. I have even had some agents, after being asked about a particular property, tell me it is crap and instead consider the home they are a listing agent on. Ryan is none of these. In over two years he showed me around 20 homes and puts offers on 10+, all of which I lost in bidding wars. Anyway, The home Ryan secured for me had the winning bidder back out and finally put me in a majestic house have have spent 5 years trying to find. You are not going to find a better agent, I guarantee it.

      • Ryan Runge's professionalism and communication skills are superb. We had never bought a condo before and didn't realize the processes were so challenging. Ryan was always there to guide us through. Ryan is very transparent. He related to us the special assessment $43,144.50 for this condo up in the front though this amount was not shown in its sale websites. Ryan did the market analysis with us and frankly provided his professional opinions. He respects our thoughts and is not pushy at all. Ryan is an excellent listener and understands us so well. Hes amazingly knowledgeable about the industry and always able to provide us clear and precise answers. We fully understand how extremely busy he is yet we feel as if we were his only client. He attends our requests promptly regardless it's evening or during weekends. Hes really client-oriented and looks after client interests. And he gave out his best to carry out our decision. Ryan possesses diplomatic charisma and is very pleasant to work with. His dedication to satisfy his client is fantastic! Thanks so much, Ryan!

      • Ryan is very professional and helped us not only sell our condo for a price we are happy with, but he negotiated for us to get a rent back which "crossing our fingers" will prevent us from having to move twice with our home purchase.

        - Kyle - Bellevue, WA
      • Mr. Runge helped us to purchase our second home in Bellevue. Everything was done over the phone or via email since we live in California. He is very responsive with great local knowledge. His attention to details really impressed my picky other half (I am hoping she is not reading this.) Overall, I would highly recommend Mr. Runge if you are looking to purchase a property.

        - Trang - Bellevue, WA
      • Working with Ryan was a blast! Not only did he provide an excellent selection of homes for us to look at, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the areas we were looking in and was able to answer every one of our questions. Ryan was also very professional and incredibly friendly. It's clear within just a few minutes of meeting him that helping his clients is incredibly important to him. Ryan also had recommendations for inspectors and movers and each one hit the mark! I'll definitely refer any of my friends looking for their next home to Ryan.

        - Darren - Duvall, WA
      • This was my first home purchase and Ryan was really helpful. I started the process of searching for a condo and within 6 weeks I was closing on my condo. Ryan was always available at all hours of the day for any questions and always responded in no time. Great experience.

        - Shawn - Renton, WA
      • I am most appreciate of his professionalism. He repeatedly took me to see condominiums ,even if I do not have a decision he still continues to search the condominiums for me. Finally I brought a condominium in Mercer Island. Ryan Runge 's attitude is excellent ! I would like to recommend all my friends looking for their next house with Ryan.

        - Betty - Mercer Island, WA
      • Simply the best real estate agent you can possibly work with. Ryan helped us sell our home as well helped us buying our new home. He should be the first agent anyone to contact for their real estate buying and selling needs. Very knowledgeable, honest and responsive. I have recommended Ryan to friends and family and will continue to do so.

        - Ilker - Renton, WA
      • NOT kidding! Hands down THE BEST agent I have ever/you'll ever work with. Ryan is aggressive at sales, patient with seller/buyers, and really knows his craft. Efficient contact (email/text). Man! I can't say enough about this guy. I am in awe and that's pretty hard to do. Listed and sold house all within 30 days. Price sold was higher than listed. My lifelong agent for all things real estate. I HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable, yet aggressive seller in the King County area (or anywhere else). Could not be happier!!!!!! Thanks, Ryan.. from our entire brood. You're the best! And, no, I am not affiliated with this guy except that he sold my property. Thank you Ryan from my entire family/brood. You're the very best!

      • Ryan is so helpful with every step of the process. He is great to work with. Always very positive and happy to help with questions or concerns. I have recommended him to friends of mine as well.

        - Derek - Seattle, WA
      • Ryan knew the market well and through his pricing strategy, he got us a price $17,000 over asking. He answered all of our questions clearly, patiently, and immediately either by phone or email. He is an excellent listener and communicator and is honest and ethical. I highly recommend him with no reservations.

        - Linda - Kent, WA
      • Count on Ryan for ANY of your real estate needs! Whether you are in the market of selling or buying, Ryan should be your FIRST pick as your agent! You can't ask for anyone more on their P's and Q's, as Ryan! I personally, only want to deal with people who are genuine and not out for the dinero. With Ryan, I gained a friend...and not just an agent. Cheers to Ryan!

        - Matt N - Federal Way, WA
      • Ryan went above and beyond what anyone would/could have done from start to finish. His communication verbally, socially and written were outstanding. He answered every question we had. When things became confusing he tackled it like a pro. He was understanding and patient of our emotions & concerns about moving after 25 years in the same home. We couldn't be more pleased, thankful or grateful to Ryan.

        - Nanci - Kent, WA
      • Through the process Ryan stayed focused. He did not pressure me when I wanted something different. I felt he had my best interest at heart. This is not the first house transaction using Ryan although the other times we were purchasing and not selling.

        - Melinda - Seattle, WA
      • Ryan made the process effortless. He has a keen eye for detail on the house, but isn't pushy about what he likes or doesn't like about the house. He called out issues, but normally waited until after we had a chance to digest. He talked us through our thoughts on the house, gave us local info and his feelings on the area and value of each home. He also had great suggestions on renovations and options for fixer uppers. We would use him again in a heartbeat, and I'll be recommending him to all our friends!

        - Chris D - Covington, WA
      • Ryan was great throughout the entire process. He took the time to explain every step and he was very knowledgeable throughout. You can tell that he really loves what he does.

        - J.B - Kenmore, WA
      • Ryan is low-key, very meticulous and professional, trustworthy. Got my home sold quickly and higher than my asking price. Ryan took care of all the details for me.

        - A.M - Seattle, WA
      • We have done three purchases and sales over the past six years with Ryan. We have also used Ryan as property management. He and the team of professionals he has assembled are outstanding. Two of the sales were difficult but Ryan navigated all the hurdles and went way above and beyond in ensuring everything was handled correctly. He has our total confidence and respect and have been very fortunate to have him represent us. Look no further because Ryan is the man!!!

        - JD - Kent, WA
      • Ryan and his team helped me sell my home and buy a home. I normally dont write reviews but Ryan deserves my time and recommendation. Ryan made sure that I was satisfied with the entire experience and reminded me each step of the way that his only concerns were my concerns and when hiccups happened, he made every effort to address them - above and beyond! He is definitely a person that you can trust which I believe is one of the most important part of the client and agent relationship. Thanks Ryan for helping us to get top dollar for our sold home and finding our new place which we LOVE!

      • We used Ryan Runge, owner of American Classic Homes in Renton for our sell and our buy. Ryan is an agent that pays close attention to what his clients are actually looking for. Out of all the home searches we had, the one the Ryan created for us matched us the best. He has a good eye, ear, and intrinsic sense for what his clients want. We had been searching for our forever home for years- Within 24 hours of him designing a home search for us, knowing our needs and wants (which is hard to do for a husband and wife with different tastes) we were under contract on our dream home. 24 hours later our home was listed and under contract and we had multiple offers all above asking price. Ryan even got a carpenter out to fix some posts in record time before our home was shown. Ryan was an expert in the areas we sold and bought in, and his professional reputation definitely helped us secure both deals. We definitely recommend Ryan for any of your real estate needs. He will keep you safe contractually and that is super important when selling and buying one of the largest transactions of your life. Thank you so much Ryan!

      • We have purchased two houses with Ryan and absolutely love him! He gets back to you very fast. He really knows his stuff. When viewing properties Ryan looks at everything the average realtor might miss. On top of him being extremely good at his job hes a great guy. I would highly recommend Ryans services.

      • Ryan and his team were exceptional. The level of communication was really great. They kept us informed on every step, and when there was no activity to report, they still touched base. We never felt left out or forgotten. They really took care of us and made us feel important. It was truly a great experience.

        - Andrea W - Auburn, WA
      • Ryan is the most LEGIT agent in the Great Northwest! He is honest, hardworking, and meticulous. He fights for his clients yet is cool calm and collected. I recommend him to everyone I know.

        - Ryan N - Auburn, WA
      • My husband and I got the pleasure to work with Ryan and Lisa. They gave us great advice on the homes we looked at and communication was excellent. Homes sell quickly and they were able to accommodate us if we wanted to see a house ASAP, that was important to us, that also made us feel like we were important to them. There is so many kind words to say about them but I think the most helpful review I can say is that Ryan's experience and efficiency is invaluable. He helped us find our first home and we are so grateful to both of them. Above all else, they really are just a bunch of enjoyable people to be around. We recommend them to our family and friends all the time. *5 stars

        - Aiana - Renton WA
      • Ryan and the team were amazing!! Great support through the whole process!!! Highly recommend them any time!! He knows the area, houses and market like the back of his hand. He even has his own moving truck you can use for free when you move! Count on Ryan for all your real estate needs!!
