Meet Ryan

Team Lead | Broker | Hickey Team
Having now lived in Costa Rica for 2 years with their 3 young children, Ryan and Chrissy would be delighted to share their experiences and help guide you to your Costa Rican dream. Ryan was raised in Alberta Canada and eventually migrated west to Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife Christine (Chrissy) to be close to the ocean and moderate temperatures of the west coast.
 
Ryan has always had a passion for real estate and has been buying and selling properties for almost 20 years. Starting small, remodeling distressed condos for resale. Ryan then expanded into the Project Management role converting older apartment buildings into modern individually titled condo units.
 
His renovation company was established in 2006 and operated successfully until he and his young family decided to move to Costa Rica. The hands-on experience renovating and following real estate trends was invaluable in recognizing the hidden potential of distressed properties and just as important those that would never return a profit. Over the years Ryan expanded into commercial real estate by owning and operating apartment buildings and formed a Property investment company in 2007. Managing real property has been a huge asset in developing and understanding the challenges and benefits associated with carrying rental properties.
 
Having bought and sold dozens of properties as an independent, Ryan decided to become a licensed real estate professional in Vancouver British Columbia. He completed the University of British Columbia’s and Real Estate Council of BC’s Real Estate Trading Services Licensing Course. Ryan and his partner and wife Chrissy have successfully remodeled and sold many properties from 1 bedroom condos to multi-million dollar single-family homes. Being honest, and loyal to those you work with and being involved from the beginning has always been the key to success.
 
From identifying unique opportunities, permitting, construction, design, staging, and eventual reselling, Ryan has got the experience to make your piece of paradise dream come true. If it’s a property to call home, a rental investment, or a remodel to increase the value for resell, the Hickey Team can help you find your property.
