After graduation Ryland moved to Miami, Florida where he spent a whole year doing door-to-door sales and learned all the ins and outs of professionalism, being a speaker, as well as a great salesperson. After returning to Arizona he was introduced into the real estate world by a good friend of his and quickly found out that real estate was where he wanted to be all along.
