556 Tremont St.
Boston, MA

Let this real estate agent know you found them on Boston magazine’s Find It Boston.

This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Ryan J. Glass began working in real estate by answering phones at a Boston firm his freshman year of college. It didn’t take long for Glass to realize real estate was his passion. Many of the agents Glass worked with encouraged him to get licensed and give real estate a try. In 2009, at only 19 years old, he became licensed and began selling part-time while he finished his degree. Glass initially sold in South Shore where he grew up. In 2013, he changed to the Boston market and joined Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. Glass has consistently been a top producer. In 2017, Glass was awarded Realtor magazine’s 30 Agents Under 30—achieving a 10-year dream. In 2018, he sold more than $20 million in real estate. After a decade in the industry, Glass has the same level of passion for real estate he did at the beginning and can’t imagine doing anything else.

What do clients have to say about you?

"When I decided to buy a home in the competitive South End market I reached out to Ryan to help me get started. His wealth of knowledge about the market and attention to detail quickly cemented my confidence in his abilities. He was always very responsive and easy to get in contact with despite my hectic work schedule and frequent trips overseas. Once we found a home that I loved Ryan worked tirelessly to ensure that my offer was accepted. Ryan helped me compete against multiple other offers and come out on top in less than 36 hours. After my offer was accepted Ryan was there every step of the way to make sure everything stayed on track. It was such a pleasure working with Ryan and I will most certainly work with him again in the future. I couldn't recommend him more highly." - Matt C.

"I could not have asked for a more dedicated realtor than Ryan. He worked tirelessly with us to search for and eventually land the perfect home for us. It was amazing to have all the major items on our wish list for our new home checked off! Ryan was also able to sell our previous home for 24k over asking. Ryan was a true professional – he was readily available and handled the curveballs associated with simultaneously selling and buying a home with ease. I wholeheartedly recommend Ryan to anyone in the Boston area looking for his or her dream home." - Todd and Jess M.

"Ryan has helped me buy two condos now. Both in markets where many properties were selling for over-ask. Ryan helped me get both at great deals. He is responsive and always available to answer my questions day or night. I would recommend Ryan to anyone in need of a realtor!" - Mike F.
