Ryan's Bio

Ryan Skelly has over 20 years of experience investing in and managing real estate, oil and gas, and financial products for corporations and families.   Working for global companies like ExxonMobil and Goldman Sachs, he has worked on many acquisitions and financial transactions.  This experience taught him the power of leverage and the value of relationships.   He is a 1998 Business Graduate from The Citadel and makes his home in Texas. 

Additionally, as the founder of a consulting company, Ryan understands the importance of remaining nimble to outperform larger competitors.  He appreciates the challenges of managing cash flows through uncertainty and market fluctuations when you don’t have the resources of a Fortune 500 company to bail you out.

These two groups of experiences led to his employment with Willow Bend Mortgage.  Today’s successful executive, entrepreneur and working professional never has enough cash on hand to be an attractive risk to banks and lenders who are still using rigid forms and risk management models that are decades old.  Ryan Skelly understands, and appreciates, the facts that scare away, or delay, traditional bankers.  Are you:

  • Needing to close in 45 days or less
  • Wanting a fast answer and technologically smooth process
  • Too high a loan to value for one property, but have equity elsewhere
  • Building a home and don’t want to have to sell your old home before starting
  • Buying or building a second home or investment property
  • Getting divorced and managing equity
  • Earning most of your income from commissions, bonuses, K1s or 1099s
  • Looking to free up cash from equity for renovations, improvements or investments
  • Seeking a personal advisory relationship over a cold banking transaction

Willow Bend combines the benefits and experience of a 25-year-old mortgage company with the technology and creative problem solving of a start-up.  Willow Bend Mortgage has access to billions of dollars of capital without the red tape of a bigger bank.  They underwrite the lender in-house, with a more holistic approach, and look at your complete situation and all of your assets. 

Whether you are looking to close faster, or just avoid the endless financial forensics, call them so you can get back to your successful endeavors.

“"I met Ryan seven years ago, and in that time I’ve come know him as a totally trustworthy, ready-to-drop-everything-to-help kind of friend that everyone desires. He can easily win you over with his smile and his wittiness alone, but then you find out that at his core he truly does care about people. He’s a rare find. A true friend."”

- Andrew C. | HOMEOWNER
