Ryan C. Smith, Investment Associate with Marcus & Millichap

Ryan specializes in the sale of retail, office and mixed-use properties in the northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C. as well as in the southeast quadrant, specifically east of the Anacostia River.  With the explosion of interest in many neighborhoods east of the river in recent years -- such as Anacostia, Congress Heights and Deanwood -- Ryan spends a significant amount of his time assisting local owners in realizing the valuable potential of their commercial assets.  His interest in commercial real estate began in 2008 prior to attending law school while working at a prestigious New York law firm on complex wills, trusts and estate planning matters.  Ryan continued to develop his skill set while working on highly confidential commercial real estate transactions in one of the nation’s most demanding markets, New York City.  From his experience in the legal field, he works diligently to maintain his clients’ confidentiality while providing zealous representation and a sharp focus on his client’s goals.  With a wealth of knowledge and practical experience in real estate related matters, he is dedicated to helping clients make sound real estate investment decisions.  Ryan received his Bachelor of Arts from Hofstra University and attended The Howard University School of Law.
