Ryan Kane

As founder of Kane & Partners, Ryan Kane has established himself as one of Northern Nevada’s most elite realtors. With over a quarter billion dollars in sales and climbing, Ryan and his team offer a masterful approach to residential real estate in the very unique market of Reno, NV and its surrounding areas. Born in Detroit, Ryan moved to Reno/Tahoe at the age of 6 after his father retired as a running back in the NFL. Combining his in-depth knowledge of the region with his sharp business sense and an aggressive approach to negotiations, Ryan has consistently ranked as a Top Producer in the state year after year.
In 2017, Ryan was enshrined in the RE/MAX International Hall of Fame, and just 1 year later, he produced the highest sales volume of any RE/MAX Professionals agent. In 2021 Ryan was honored with the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award. His enthusiasm and love for real estate is only topped by his passion as a father and husband. Ryan is a true family man and loves to think of his clients as extended family, knowing well that the bond created through the home buying process is very special. “It’s not uncommon for my clients and I to follow up our business relationship with an ongoing friendship. You can become quite close with a buyer as you help them navigate and succeed at the important purchase of their life.” When out of the office, Ryan is an avid skier, golfer, basketball player, and coach for his kids’ sports teams. He loves spending time on his boat with his family and being surrounded by lifelong and new friends alike.

Jim Elliott

Jim began his real estate career in 1st grade. Well, maybe it officially began in 2004, but he’s been fostering relationships in the Reno/Tahoe community since he began elementary school, and relationships are the cornerstone of his business. “It’s not business– it’s personal. There are people and families at the heart of real estate transactions, and they each have their own goals. Those become my goals, too.” Selling your home with Jim is an experience based on exceptional service and extensive market knowledge.

Year after year, Jim is among the top industry professionals in closed transactions. He understands that great customer service is the key to earning his clients’ trust, referrals, and their repeat business. Referrals from satisfied clients account for more than 90 percent of his business. On a personal note, Jim has lived in Northern Nevada his entire life and is very appreciative of the beautiful surroundings and outdoor lifestyle. When not working (or sometimes while working), he loves to be outdoors enjoying the many mountain trails or serene lakes in the region.

Nick Abe

When it comes to real estate agents, we dare you to find someone more fun and driven than Nick Abe. Nick started his real estate career in 2015 and has always been with the RE/MAX brand. He hit the ground running and has worked his way up the ranks earning production awards year after year. In 2020, Nick earned the prestigious RE/MAX Hall of Fame award and is consistently in the top percentage of Realtors for production in all of Northern Nevada. Nick prides himself in great communication, excellent negotiation skills, market knowledge, building deeper relationships, and just generally being easy to work with. Nick’s clients start out as just that but by the end of the transaction, they are lifelong friends.

Nick was born and raised in Hilo, HI and after graduating in 2000, he moved to Reno, NV to go to the University of Nevada. After graduating in 2005 with a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Political Science, and a Minor in Psychology, he spent his years honing his customer service skills in the service industry bartending at some of the most busy and popular nightclubs in Reno. This is where he fostered his love for connecting with people, and taking care of their needs and wants. Nick was hired to open two bars from the ground up and also train all of the in-house staff bartenders in a large casino on customer service, building rapport, sales, and general guest relations.

When not helping his clients build wealth and financial stability, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Jaclyn, and their three boys – Ryland, Brecken, and Taron. Always helping coach and practice baseball, basketball, and soccer, if there’s any time after that, you can find Nick singing and dancing at concerts, on road trips with his family, swinging the sticks on the golf course, or snowboarding up at Mount Rose.
