Looking to the Skies 

Ryan Gillen had a good job with Anheuser-Busch Inbev in Louisville, Ky., but he felt selling beer wasn’t making the kind of positive impact on the world that he was seeking. His father, a long-time real estate practitioner, encouraged him to join the business, and he’s glad he did. “I truly feel it’s my calling to help as many people as I can, and real estate is my avenue to achieve my dreams,” says Gillen, 27. His team specializes in working with military clients relocating to the prominent Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. In fact, two of his team members are veterans (one served in the Army, the other in the Marines). “Culture is the most important element I preach to my team on a weekly basis,” says Gillen, who leads three agents and two assistants. “Our team is there for each other when we need help the most.”
