Ryan Desch, REALTOR® ABR®
Citing calls to duty and service, Ryan is active with the Lawrence Board of REALTORS as well as the Kansas Association of REALTORS. Serving as a director of the board and numerous committees at the local and state level, Ryan exhibits a wealth of experience and knowledge about the world of real estate. Currently, Ryan is the 2019 LBOR President-elect and is looking forward to representing local REALTORS at the state and national levels.
Locally, stewardship of the Lawrence community is a top priority for Ryan. As the 2018-19 inaugural Chairperson of the Lawrence Board of REALTORS Community Foundation, Ryan has helped to organize fundraising and volunteer opportunities for local housing-related needs. Ryan has been instrumental in developing an ongoing relationship with Lawrence REALTORS and Family Promise of Lawrence through programs like Project 913 and Keys to Good Tenancy. In 2018 Ryan was recognized with the Lawrence Board of REALTORS Mary Jones Good Neighbor Award for these and other efforts.
Ryan is the broker/owner of a brand new real estate company in Lawrence, R+K Real Estate Solutions. We are a consumer-focused brokerage aimed at empowering buyers and sellers. If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t have a choice in the one-size-fits-all real estate world, then R+K is here to give you another choice! It’s important to have a good REALTOR by your side, but it’s even more important to have someone who’s allowing the client to make choices that fit their needs, not the needs of their agent.
Ryan resides in Lawrence with his wife Katie and insists upon the importance of running a family-focused business. Having taken a cue from his time as a manager at Nordstrom, Ryan maintains a high level of customer service with his clients. Ryan is a family man, a sharp dresser, and a whiskey enthusiast. He’s a great agent to choose when buying or selling a home!
