About Ryan Rodenbeck

Ryan is the owner/broker of Spyglass Realty and started his career in Austin as an investor in 2001. In 2008, Ryan began Spyglass Realty with his wife, Angél Rodenbeck. He focused on building a team of highly trained Austin agents who concentrate on real estate consultation rather than just sales. Ryan began to adopt techniques for marketing homes that are above and beyond, putting a listing on MLS and taking a photo with a camera phone. He is a student and teacher of digital and social media marketing, using techniques to ensure that each listing in his firm is marketed to the largest possible audience for his agent's clients. Keeping up with the latest digital and social media trends is paramount to Ryan. 

In addition, Ryan studied negotiation techniques to ensure that he and his agents were trained in collaborative negotiations. His goal is to hire only agents with the most experience or potential so all Spyglass Realty's REALTORS® are vetted. Ryan has served on the board of directors at Austin Board of REALTORS® and several committees. He teaches social media classes at ABoR and contributes to Inman Magazine's monthly column.
