About me

It seems like working in Real Estate was something I was always destined to do. With parents that have brought and sold multiple houses and a childhood journey that spans the length of the country, moving, open homes and houses are in my blood.

Yes, Real Estate is about a property, but it is primarily to do with people. Being understanding, patient, energetic, strong morals, motivated all skills I have gained through life experience I can provide a service unlike anyone else. I have a passion for the Real Estate market and a wide knowledge of multiple areas in our wonderful city. With a wife and 3 wonderful children, I have the ultimate motivation to perform and provide for my family. My Real Estate journey is a chapter being written each day, and I approach every opportunity as a chance to learn and develop. My approach is innovative and focused on changing the way Real Estate is traditionally done and with $8,763,500 of home sales this year, homeowners in New Plymouth are ready to experience a new way of doing things. I’m currently ranked 54th in the country and 1st in Taranaki according to customer reviews on the website Rate My Agent.

You have read my story and I'd love to hear yours and be part of your next Real Estate journey and I promise it will be an experience like no other, just like the slogan of this wonderful region.

A realestate agent with care, innovation and market knowledge! This being my first home and only home that I've ever sold, it was important that I found someone who had the knowledge and sensitivity to walk me through the sale process. Ryan's gentle nature put me at ease, his expertise and understanding of the property market also put me at ease.

Ryan & Miriam

10 out of 10! From the first time we met Ryan, he stood out from the other agents we had met. He was the perfect mix of being down-to-earth, friendly and approachable yet a professional in all our dealings with him. We were not in the same region throughout the selling process, so it was extra crucial that he communicated well and was trustworthy, and he couldn't have been better. Ryan was great with us, with prospective buyers and even with our neighbours. He was an exceptional agent for us and we wouldn't hesitate or think twice to go through him again in future.

Kathryn & Alex

A little gem! I would recommend Ryan and tall poppy to friends or family planning to sell. The clear and upfront costs meant we knew exactly how much we would pay after our property sold. Ryan was relatable, flexible and professional in his approach. Happy customer!

I purchased a property listed by Ryan... Ryan was professional, very easy to deal with and very helpful throughout the entire process. He went out of his way to obtain access to the property for a building inspection, which allowed to go unconditional quickly. Thanks Ryan! We cant wait to get settled in our new home!

Martin & Sue

Very Knowledgable & Kind Real Estate Agent! We meet Ryan at the first open home of the house we ended up buying & right from the start he was able to give us a very knowledgeable run down on the home & area. We were very nervous as we had missed out on previous houses that we had wanted to put a contract on but Ryan spent time talking through any of our issues and did not make us feel that we were taking up his time. He followed up with us on a regular bases through the whole proceeding time and gave us a lovely welcome gift for our home. We can not speak highly enough of Ryan & would recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home. He is one of the good guys in the real estate industry.

Steve & Tracey

Great to work with! We really enjoyed our experience with Ryan. We found Ryan to be extremely professional, he talked us through the process and always kept us informed every step of the way. We would recommend Ryan and Tall Poppy to anyone who is considering selling.

Lisa & Robert

Communication plus! Ryan was open and honest with all his communication about the house. The feedback from open homes have both positives and negatives. When we had offers he was clear about the differences in each one. Made selling an open and relatively stress free process.

JW & Maritsa

Pleasant Buying Experience! Ryan was transparent and was well prepared all the way through the experience. He had good knowledge of the area and did not waste any time to facilitate negotiations between ourselves and the sellers. We are satisfied that Ryan looked after both ourselves and the buyers and can recommend him to future buyers/sellers.


Awesome experience! I'm very glad I had Ryan on the job. From day one he worked along side me and my personal needs. He made it seem effortless to sell my house but always kept me up to date with proceedings. I found him very streamlined every step of the way, only making contact if it was important otherwise he would be working hard in background to produce the best result. As a agent and as a person he is second to none. Wish him all the best for the future.


Having lived in my house for the last thirty nine years I was therefore new to the real estate market and had a very limited knowledge of what was involved in selling a house. I found Ryan to be very knowledgeable about the housing market in New Plymouth and he was able explain and show details of the house sales in the local area. He went through the paperwork I needed to sign and answered all my questions succinctly and with great patience as well as ensuring that I understood everything before I signed. I have enjoyed working with Ryan throughout this time and would highly commend his professionalism,enthusiasm and energy.

Steve & Liz

Awesome real estate agent ! With private selling becoming more common we had to decide to go it alone or engage an agency, in the end after weighing it all up decided to go with Ryan at Tall Poppy, best decision we ever made ! Right from the very first phone conversation Ryan was helpful, only too happy to explain everything and make sure we were fully informed. With his local knowledge of this area he knew exactly where our house fitted into the market and how best to present / market it. What really sets Ryan apart though is he has strong morals to be fair to all parties in the sale process, no hiding things or doing anything that would be considered fair by some in the industry. To top it all off with the outstanding service, knowledge and advise from Ryan we received multiple offers within days of listing that achieved a sale price far in excess of what we had been expecting, we couldn't be happier with the outcome. We would recommend Ryan 100%, an awesome agent and genuine nice family guy as well.


Ryan McFadyen is the best salesperson we have had when selling a property and also having someone ring us to check is the icing on the cake.


Ryan was informative and extremely friendly. He was a huge help and didn't shy away from any questions I had. Overall Ryan was great to work with and abundantly friendly.
