Real estate encompasses everything. Homes, investment properties, condos, farms—they all make up the same facet of life.

The main thing they all have in common is that they represent an opportunity to change your future forever and become exponentially better off. Whether you require a land agent, a residential property professional, or a skillful negotiator, investing in real estate isn’t a decision to take lightly.

However, it is one that Ryan Collinsworth believes should be open to everybody. As a Flower Mound real estate agent, his primary passion is helping people embrace the life-changing effects of investing in real estate.

Having led six Keller Williams offices and garnered accolades from D Magazine’s Top Producer to Best of Denton County, Ryan combines his skills as a commercial, residential and land agent with his grasp of wealth generation to be the best real estate agent in Texas for his clients.

“I take a full circle view,” he explains. “We don’t just want to sell you a home; we want to partner with you to build wealth.”

That partnership begins by sharing top tips and invaluable insight. Here are three unmissable ways to set yourself up for success from a local expert with an ambitious attitude:

1. Pivot your perspective

It can be challenging to shake the feeling embedded in us over generations that land is solely to live on. Property can make for a fine home or prove a productive agricultural asset. But, in every circumstance, investing in real estate is also an opportunity to transform your life and your family’s future.

“Look at your purchase as an investment, not just a home,” Ryan proclaims. “Real estate is the best and most secure way to build generational wealth.”

To secure long-term financial prosperity, you should be open to diversifying rather than closed to new possibilities. Ryan Collinsworth leverages his expertise as an agent to assist with residential as well as farm and ranch properties. As time progresses and properties change hands, his broad perspective aims to keep generations returning to his astute advice and wealth-building wisdom.

2. Economize efficiently

If done with the guidance of a financially-focused realtor, investing in real estate can provide tantalizing benefits. But take a second before you place an offer on every piece of land you can find. Investing within your means is vital for your mental well-being and that of your bank account.

“Stay in your budget,” Ryan advises. “You want to enjoy your home, not stress over finances.”

“The homes people buy are often the largest investment they will ever make,” the Flower Mound real estate agent continues. “While this is true, it does not have to be overwhelming.”

It’s okay if you don’t know where to start. As an experienced professional with a background in residential and commercial real estate, farms and ranches, and land development, Ryan Collinsworth believes speaking to someone who knows your property type is critical. 

Moreover, integrity is a crucial value to seek in your chosen partner. If you’re parting with a significant sum, you need someone who will be honest about your prospects.

Ryan begins by considering people’s circumstances. Then, he nudges them toward the most sustainable investment, providing grounded guidance rather than selling a falsehood.

While his goal is always maximizing returns and investment opportunities, Ryan has also helped over 700 families turn the key in their dream homes because the two shouldn’t be exclusive.

3. Create constructive connections

If you haven’t yet gathered, succeeding in real estate is all about the people around you. Knowledge is power—and money.

It’s just logical. The more individuals you take advice from, the less likely your investment will fall short of your expectations.

“Surround yourself with like-minded people who encourage you to grow in wealth and focus less on material possessions and more on long-term investments,” Ryan recommends. “Always think bigger!”

If one Flower Mound real estate agent isn’t enough, this well diversified agent has a whole network of them, along with developers, builders, and investors who all might mention something you hadn’t thought of.

There might be opportunities you hadn’t noticed, either. Ryan can access off-market properties, gather offers before listing, and arrange everything from staging to financing. His wife, who joined the company in 2023, has an educational background that ensures the process and all its intricacies never become overwhelming.

“The agent you work with is as good as the database they have,” Flower Mound real estate agent Ryan adds. “You need someone who knows this area inside and out!”

Whatever their position on the latest investment opportunity, consult people whose hearts are in the right place. Values make transactions. The values he has always focused on are God, Family, Business. There’s a reason why Ryan Collinsworth has kept honesty, integrity, relationships, and resourcefulness at his core for 21 years.
