Chris is an author, Forbes contributor, multimillionaire real estate investor and adviser and a philanthropist.
As a seasoned real estate adviser of over 16 years, Chris Ryan is recognized as one of North America’s industry leaders in all facets of real estate. Chris is now focused on building a legacy that aims to make this world a healthier place from an environmental and humanitarian standpoint.
Prior to many of his notable successes and accolades in real estate, Chris authored a novel titled, “The Passion Hunt – Find Your Passion and Purpose in Life”.  A key philosophy shared in his book includes the concept of full spectrum wealth, meaning “to be truly wealthy, one must achieve wealth in all areas of life such as physical, mental, spiritual, financial, relational and legacy wealth”.  He will publish and release this book in 2019.
Throughout his work and life, his overarching goal has been to make people more conscious of what really matters in life.  In 2010, he enjoyed a few inspiring seconds of fame when he appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show where he was shortlisted for an opportunity to have his own show.  Chris was showcased first on the sizzle reel which aired his message: “I want to make people more conscious”. From that experience he continued to level up his life, additionally fueled by his desire to create a loving family of his own and means to support them. Two years later he met his beautiful wife, Chelsea and married in 2015. In 2017, they welcomed their first son Andreas.
During this time, Chris went on to become the founder of his own real estate group called Luxury Lifestyles, which he later expanded to become Beyond Properties Group. Beyond Properties Group consists of heartfelt leaders joining together out of a desire to make a positive change in the real estate industry. They created their Core Values around giving back, transparency and evolving in both the industry and themselves. BPG takes on initiatives that are environmentally or humanitarian focused and has initiated beach cleanups around the world, building community and camaraderie by removing garbage from beaches and oceans.
Chris is a recipient of numerous awards in the real estate industry, ranging from donation contributions to number one team and individual awards such as the Chairman’s award and Hall of fame award.  His success in the real estate profession has led to many news articles and being featured on CBC, Forbes and local Vancouver newspapers. His recent move to eXp Realty has supported the expansion of his heart led real estate group worldwide.  He is also an ambassador for the Non-Profit group known as the World Housing Association ( Chris continues to focus on his passions to help leaders lead, businesses grow and create larger impact through his philanthropy work.
Chris incorporates his heart led leadership in all areas of his life.  His passion is to present those around him a better sense of who they really are, why they are here and their respective natural talents.  His intention being that this will carry over and radiate to those they support and influence. He has fully adopted the quote: “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want” – Zig Ziglar
Chris has coined the acronym L.I.O.N – Leading Inwardly Outwardly Now.  This approach will lead to the ability to identify opportunities on the horizon, above the status quo, without hesitation and beyond any limiting beliefs.  He aims for success in a world guided by one’s inner LION and he believes to be a true leader we must lead from the heart and project that vulnerability (and strength) at all times.  This approach leads to true, lasting positive impact upon oneself and others.
His number one passion remains to give back through inspirational leadership and legacy building. His laser focus on becoming his best self and achieving full spectrum wealth has culminated into an opportunity to further promote the message of increased consciousness, awareness, purpose finding and legacy building.  His intention is to help identify and support bright lights and new talents: makers, creators, successful athletes, actors, business founders, CEO’s and independently wealthy. The ripple effect of supporting this demographic will lead to positive impact upon the millions of people they also influence. Chris is currently in planning stages to create impactful retreat spaces that will offer heart based, conscious influencers a place to gather and unlock their full potential, while building out legacies of their own.
Chris and his beautiful wife Chelsea and his son Andreas spend the majority of time in Vancouver, Canada and Maui, USA. They are currently looking at properties in southern California to also call home.
