Ryan also made Top Producer Magazine, a nationwide publication. Ryan has facilitated over $1.5 Billion in distressed real estate transactions.

Paradyme's objective and core passion are in line with "Impact" investing. Ryan’s “forward thinking” leads in today’s capital environment. Through ESG, our focus is on sustainable assets planning for 20-30 years down the road. A true wealth mindset mentality. Along with filling a direct need for housing and workout-turnarounds for small businesses with real estate holdings. With more than a dozen projects in the pipeline at any given time, averaging $250 Million, Garland’s diversified platform structure is what most alternative investors are looking for in today’s volatile marketplace. Ryan is recognized throughout Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Riverside Counties.
