Integrity is the cornerstone of Ryan’s business. He believes a mortgage should be about building relationships and helping his customers achieve their home financing goals, not just a transaction. As a Fairway Independent Mortgage Branch Manager, Ryan takes a consultative approach to the home loan process by customizing each transaction to help his customers achieve their home financial goals. Many loan officers can get you a loan. Ryan’s mission is to get you the right loan for your Orange County home.


The Ryan Grant Team has been a pioneer in transforming the way that the consumer looks at their mortgage lending relationship. For over 13 years, Ryan and his team of outstanding professionals have provided a level of value to their clients that is not common in the mortgage business. This has allowed them to become the #1 Mortgage Lending Team in Orange County, CA and among the top 25 in the United States.

In a typical mortgage experience, you would call a lender and tell them what you would like and the sales person would tell you if they can help you and at which terms you would get. We simply believe that on the consumer's end, this experience doesn't provide them with any value at all. Any mortgage company will tell you what you CAN do, but very few will help you understand what you SHOULD do. Our team takes the time to better understand your holistic financial picture and our advice is based around the short and long term goals you may have set out for yourself. We spend time with each client, either in our office or through a virtual meeting, to walk you through every step of the process and to ensure you have clarity around making an educated decision.

We want you to ask yourself the question, “Who is really benefiting from the lenders suggestion?” In a typical mortgage experience, the lender is benefiting. When working with our team, it’s important that you know that our Mortgage Advisors are compensated on a salary, not based on 100% commission like most mortgage companies. This allows our team to give you unbiased and well thought out advice and guidance, regardless of the outcome, not only now, but for years to come.

Our team believes that because we often times are helping you with your largest financial asset (your home) and your largest debt (your mortgage), that we have a fiduciary responsibility to proactively help you make smart decisions, before, during and well after your initial transaction with us. We have a goal of helping all of our clients grow their wealth over time, reduce their debt for a debt free retirement and plan appropriately for their future.

Ryan and his team have not only dedicated themselves to helping enrich the lives of the families they serve, but to helping the community as a whole. The Ryan Grant Team has a charitable division of their group called “Grant Team Wishes” which is dedicated to helping underprivileged families.
