Ryan Samuelson, an integral part of the Ruhter Auction & Realty team, brings to the table a rich heritage and unique perspective grounded in his personal journey and professional expertise. Joining our company in 2013 after his family exited their 100+ year John Deere dealership legacy, Ryan's roots run deep in the agricultural and equipment industry.
Before contributing his talents to the family business, Ryan was actively involved in hay and livestock, providing him with invaluable firsthand experience that aids his understanding of our clientele's unique needs.
Ryan came on board with his Nebraska real estate license already earned and wasted no time in securing his Broker's license. By 2015, Ryan expanded his reach to Kansas, completing both his real estate license and Broker's license there.
In February of 2014, Ryan further honed his auctioneering skills by graduating from the esteemed World Wide College of Auctioneering. Just a month later, he conducted his first auction. Since then, Ryan has had the opportunity to lead several personal property and equipment auctions, gleaning insights into the intricacies of conducting a professional auction. Ryan readily acknowledges the vital role of the clerk in a successful Live auction.
As the auction industry continues to evolve, Ryan and the Ruhter Auction & Realty team have adeptly navigated the changes. They've seamlessly transitioned to online-only auctions and Simulcast auctions for both real estate and equipment. As Ryan notes, "The Auction business will continue to change and the companies that continue to adapt in the marketing aspects will thrive."
Away from the auction house, Ryan is a dedicated family man, residing in Hastings with his wife, Julie, and their three children, Morgan, Breck, and Irelyn.
As a co-owner of Ruhter Auction & Realty, Ryan continues to demonstrate his commitment to adaptability, professionalism, and excellence in service, leveraging his diverse experiences to create successful outcomes for our clients.
