"Searching for a good realtor is something you NEED to do, finding an amazing realtor is just luck. Let me tell you our story. We interviewed a realtor, thought they did a great job, said that the next realtor we were interviewing really has to step up their game. And he did! Ryan Torris provided a COMPLETE assessment of our house, discussing a complete strategic approach on how to market our home, value our home, and what projects to complete to best show our home. After thinking about it and being very impressed we decided to use Ryan. Ryan quickly gathered his tools and started doing small touch-ups, things like switch out our LED lights, caulking all windows, updating light switches ect. That was all in the 1st few days, then COVID shut down the world. We were relocating from Airdrie AB to Winnipeg MB. How are we supposed to sell a home when everyone is staying home. Well, we had Ryan on our team, and just didn't know he was going to be our star player. Ryan volunteered to check on our home every few days (insurance requirement) then also sanitized our home for every family coming into our home to ensure they were safe. We were getting stressed, our house was not selling due to COVID. Ryan kept us calm, reassured us of our decisions with pricing. He kept his cool, and we know were were in good hands. Then the market started picking up, we had multiple people coming and viewing our home within a few weeks. Finally, we had an offer! then it fell apart.... We were disappointed, stressed, it was now end of May, our house was on the market from the start of COVID (Mid March). Then Ryan, our star player went out, talked to the other realtor, gained back interest in our home and got the offer back on the table with more money, WOW! Finally, our house sold. But we weren't done with our star player. We had cleaners / movers that needed access to our home, Ryan again stepped up. From start to finish, I would give Ryan Torris 6 stars out of 5. We were so pleased with everything he did for us and he did a lot more then any realtor I have used before . Thank you Ryan! All the best to you and your Family. Take care - Clarence and Heidi!!!"
"Ryan did an amazing job selling our home. Everything was explained in great detail and our house sold very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank-you so much Ryan. Great job!"
"Ryan was the best Real Estate agent we could have asked for! We felt like he gave us a very personal and dedicated search for our perfect home, in a very comfortable and no pressure manner. He spent a great deal of time finding homes for us to look at, and very patiently explained the pros and cons of various house issues we found together. His experience with construction and renovation of homes was invaluable and gave us enough info to make good decisions about the houses we were looking at. Ryan is a very relatable and down to earth person who we felt very comfortable talking to, and he made the experience of buying our house an easy and enjoyable one. I would very highly recommend using Ryan to find your perfect home."
"Our family had the pleasure of working with Ryan to find a new home for my mom in Calgary. As my mom currently lives in Florida and was needing to complete the purchase from abroad, we required extra support. Ryan was extremely patient, kind, helpful and professional through the entire process. The purchase was truly seamless, without incident. We can’t thank him enough! Look forward to staying in touch and working with him again in the future!"
"Ryan did an amazing job with us for the sale of our home. He is knowledgeable about the industry, had a great strategy to move forward, confident and personable."
"Ryan takes a modern and analytical approach to Real Estate, backing everything up with data and utilizing extensive marketing avenues. Ryan also goes above and beyond with his concierge services, I barely lifted a finger during the whole process. If you need a Real Estate agent in the Calgary Area, Ryan's your guy!"
"Ryan Torris went above and beyond working with us to sell our home. The great advice, communication and his willingness to help out made for an awesome experience! His Marketing strategy went far beyond our expectations! We were referred to Ryan by a dear mutual friend and we instantly connected. He is an honest, caring man. It was obvious from the first introduction meeting that he is very passionate and incredibly proud of his work. During the process,he is continually keeping us updated on the progress so there are no surprises. Thank you Ryan for doing such a great job for us!"
"Ryan was recommended to me by a friend after I was disappointed in other realtors I had talked to about my property. His concierge service is the best in the business! He helped me make my house look and sell for the best price possible. While others I knew were only getting one or 2 viewings, mine was constantly being viewed and in a tough market, that made all the difference!! I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone needing realtor services!!"
"I recently purchased my home. He was the listing agent and who I contacted for a showing. I did not have a realtor. I felt so comfortable with him that I chose to use him as my realtor. He explained the dual agency relationship. As this was not my first home purchase, the neutral role he played, worked well since I understood the process. He checked in regularly throughout. ensured that I understood what was next, answered all questions, and referred various services/professionals as his concierge service is also included. For many weeks after I moved in, he continued to check in to ensure I was settling in and that it was going smoothly. Professional, connected, and responsive. Thanks Ryan, love my new home!"
"Before I put my house up for sale I had a lot of work to do. Ryan helped me organize some trades to get the work done and he also spent his time working on my house. I was in a little deep and Ryan was such a huge help to me the whole time. I can't say enough good things about Ryan, he made the process easy and comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home."
"Ryan is an amazing Realtor to work with and to trust in the Sale of your home. He walked us through the step by step process of getting your home ready for listing and selling. His provides a concierge service to help streamline all the processes involved in selling. He took on the tasks of some minor repairs and upgrades at his own expense and time! All said and done from listing to final offer we were under 30 days! I put total trust in Ryan and will recommend him to anyone looking for Great Realtor!"
"This was the 3rd home that my wife and I had purchased and by far the easiest and least stressful of them all. Ryan's professionalism and expertise is unmatched. His attention to detail and promptness in answering all our questions/concerns and in coordinating viewings/appointments was truly impressive. No matter the request and no matter the time, Ryan was available. This is extremely crucial when buying a home as time is of the essence in order to tender an offer and ultimately secure the purchase. Ryan exceeded all our expectations and went above and beyond to ensure we were fully satisfied with our new home. He didn't just facilitate the purchase, he also made sure all aspects of the purchase were taken care of; from coordinating inspections to recommending brokers, lawyers and the various trades as part of our renovation project. We cannot thank Ryan enough for all that he's done and continues to do. Without his wealth of knowledge and graciousness in offering his time we would have never been able to have our dream home! To those of you in the market to buy or sell your home, you'd be making a huge mistake and leaving money on the table if you don't go with Ryan as your next Realtor. PERIOD! Thank you Ryan! You're the best!"
"If I was the type of person to rave about something I would rave about the service I have received from Ryan...since I don't rave I will just say he has been amazing. His concierge service has made selling my home a much less stressful experience than it would have been. Getting full asking price in today's market has made him a 'miracle man' with my neighbours. I have never before come across a realtor who arrives in 'working clothes' with tool kit to do minor repairs prior to staging; yet this has been my experience with Ryan. Concierge service continues with my move to the apartment that he helped me purchase. His early life as a contractor is proving valuable as he coordinates the renovations in this apartment. I guess I have been raving!"
"Ryan is diligent, thorough and extremely knowledgeable about real estate and homeconstruction. I have used him both to renovate and to sell my property. He doesn't need big fancy billboards because his work speaks for itself. You won't go wrong working with Ryan. You could go wrong if you don't!"
Sara & Bryan
"Selling our home seemed like a stressful thing to do - and then we hired Ryan - and all the stress seemed to disappear. Right from the initial meeting, he was extremely well prepared, honest and very transparent. Anytime we had something come up that needed attention, he was over to our house with a solution and would execute with ease. Having a construction background - Ryan has contacts for EVERYTHING and EVERYONE - which made it quick and easy to get jobs done ! We were able to sell our home on the first showing at FULL asking price. Ryan is a miracle worker and will work hard for you ! Thank you again for everything you did, we will only use Ryan’s services from here on out !!"
"Ryan was terrific with the whole sale of my home. On the ball with everything going above and beyond. He took care of all my cares and concerns and made it a very smooth transition from my home of 21 years to my new home. I’d recommend Ryan Torris and Blackrock CIR highly."
"Amazing service with getting the house ready and staged! The concierge service was so helpful with all the big and small details that come with selling. Ryan went above and beyond as an agent!"
"Ryan was great and very accommodating. Being a new home owner I would definitely recommend this company for real estate!"
"Ryan is very straight forward and was very good at keeping us in the loop. He answered all of our questions honestly and bluntly (even when we expected a more sugar coated version hahaha.. we appreciated getting a straight answer instead of a bunch of fluff). Ryan is also well connected, he seems to have contacts and solutions for everything we needed, including several renovation questions that came up. Thank you for everything you do, we wouldn't consider using anyone else!"

"Buying or selling a home can be both exciting and stressful. Ryan's professionalism, open and honest communication, and extensive knowledge makes everything about the process easier. And, on top of all that, Ryan delivers results. I have worked with 4 different real estate agents across 2 provinces and Ryan was the best by far. Let Ryan help you with your sale or purchase - you will be very glad you did!"
"In 2011, I was lucky enough to have Ryan's company upgrade my condo. I have continually recommended him to friends because of his dedication and professionalism in everything he does. He is able to also make suggestions based on his extensive knowledge in the construction industry. Ryan’s drive to help people buy and sell real estate through Blackrock Real Estate fuels his passion in the industry of housing. He is well equipped to help you prepare your home for sale and knows exactly what to look for in one you're looking to buy too!"
Don & Erin
"We have worked with Ryan on two properties, and known him professionally since 2014. We continue to come back to work with Ryan as we trust his advice that if we are going to invest money into a home that we are adding quality, value and future salability. We really appreciate the industry knowledge that he brings to the table as both a CIR Real Estate Agent and Director & Licensed General Contractor of Blackrock Construction. He is a great resource on building codes and local regulations. We found that he has great attention to detail and he has the ability to give us a plan that would re-solve any issues that we found with an older home in a cost effective manner.
Ryan has been excellent to communicate with, he is very personable and takes the time to answer all of our questions promptly and kept us informed throughout our time working together. He is dedicated and hardworking, with strong family values. We are a large family of 7, and we felt so comfortable having Ryan in our home.
We very much felt like Ryan was looking after our interests and wanted to ensure that we were happy with the final result. He was even kind enough to treat us to a Flames Game afterwards, such a great date night for us after we were settled into our home!"
“I have known Ryan for several years now and have been thoroughly delighted with his commitment to me as his client. He has set up a refined apartment search for me that focuses only on what fits in with my expectations. Whenever there has been a property in that search that I have wished to view everything has been arranged carefully and expediently. Because I have more experience of the construction side of his background I know I can trust him implicitly and nothing but the best effort will be provided.”
"I have known and worked with Ryan for almost 20 years. His ability to understand not only your customers wants and needs, but yours is unmatched. Ryan has an extremely high level of both market and construction knowledge which will benefit you 10 fold."
"Ryan Torris isn't your average real estate agent -- especially when it comes to his market knowledge of Airdrie realty. He was happy and willing to educate my girlfriend and I on what our options were. We quickly found out Ryan has excellent attention to detail, and went over and above with his responsiveness when we needed him. THANK YOU RYAN!"
Janet & Dale
"We highly recommend Ryan. Moving back to Alberta after seven years of living in Ontario posed many difficulties. We explained what we were looking for and the area we wanted to live in. Ryan found many places meeting our needs and highlighted one in particular that met our wants. Being a 38 hour drive away, Ryan did online video walk throughs with us, thorough inspections, financial and legal sourcing. We’ve used other real estate agents in the past and none compare to the effort, sincere honesty and follow up from Ryan. Couldn’t be happier with our new home and Ryan spoiling us. Sincere thanks Ryan 😀"
"Earlier this year we wanted to sell our house in Airdrie and move to BC. When we contacted Ryan to be our agent the level of professionalism and knowledge for the industry Ryan had gave us the confidence that he could get the job done. The level of service Ryan gave us was unbelievable, it was stress free and we were always in the loop with no hidden surprises. I wouldn't hesitate to use Ryan for any future real estate needs or recommend him to my family and friends. Thanks again Ryan"
"Ryan came to the first meeting well prepared with good understanding of the neighborhood; he suggested a higher list price than what I had in mind, and my house sold in 2 days. Ryan was easy to work with, always available for a phone call or text. I would definitely use Ryan again."
"I would just like to express my experience with Ryan cause it was a great experience and without him I could not have even got my house finished to list. Needed a few things and instead of just sitting on it like I normal do Ryan gave me the motivation, advice, and even lent me a hand. The guy even brought me chicken noodle soup when I sick. Like who does that these days. The house looks better than I expected thanks to Ryan to get is sold. Thank you Ryan for the motivation, the great advice, the help with everything, and the chicken noodle soup."
