Raveis has been recognized by the Swanepoel Power 200 as one of the Most Influential Leaders in the Residential Real Estate Industry every year since 2016. Prior to rejoining the family business, Ryan held positions with a top strategic management consulting and research services firm as well as a venture capital-backed internet services firm, where he led the implementation of the nation’s first broker-direct online mortgage platform.
Van Dyk has been a top loan officer for 15 years and covers Hingham, Scituate, Norwell and Duxbury on the South Shore of Massachusetts. In order to win this annual honor, mortgage originators must close at least $30 million in loans, delivering outstanding results in a challenging mortgage market.
