5 Star Land Company meet Ryan Nelson

Ryan Nelson  Ryan Nelson is a 5th generation cattleman from Wilton, California. His ancestors raised cattle in places such as western Iowa, Nevada, and northern California. Ryan has had an interest in cattle and agriculture in general since he was a kid helping the family raise registered Angus cattle, and producing a bull sale to provide cow/calf operators with Angus bulls of the highest quality. Real estate also runs in the family as well, Ryan’s father, Mark, is the Broker for Five Star Land Company, Inc. His oldest sister is in ranch brokerage in Oregon, his brother works in commercial real estate, and another sister sells residential real estate in the East Bay Area.

  Ryan graduated from California State University, Fresno, and is a very proud Bulldog. He has a B.S. in Animal Science with an emphasis in Livestock Management and Production, and is a member of Alpha Gamma Rho. While attending Fresno State, Ryan realized that real estate was also competing for his attention. He had two separate summer internships with CB Richard Ellis, a commercial real estate firm. While he enjoyed real estate, agriculture was still tugging at him. In 2010 he obtained his real estate license and merged his two favorite worlds and started selling farms and ranches.Ryan Nelson

  Ryan prides himself on putting his clients first, and taking an honest, no nonsense approach to doing business. Ryan feels that a great relationship with a client and a client’s best interests are more important than a commission check. He has successfully merged the old school way of doing business instilled in him by his father with technologies of the world today to better suit his clients’ needs.

  When not working in real estate, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife Hailey and son's Jhett and Cort.
