The Johnston Group was established in 2018 from humble beginnings in Tampa, Florida. Ryan Johnston started this business with funds he saved from working at his 9-5 and hard-money loans. Each project finished has been increasingly higher quality than the one before it.

Not only is Ryan finding & funding the deals, he is the designer, the general contractor, quality control, and the realtor. As the owner operator, Ryan is involved in every aspect of the business - for now.

Each project we take on, we learn and grow from, with the goal of completing projects the right way - not cutting any corners in the process.

Meet the Owner

Ryan has been around the residential industry since he was born! His dad played a key part early in his life by getting Ryan involved with his work as a carpenter. Ryan's dad would take him to his job sites, make him spot errors in blueprints, and encourage Ryan to design and build his own projects at a very young age.

In high school, Ryan would take on side-jobs with his dad to earn some extra money until he went on to Ball State University to get his bachelors degree in Architecture with a minor in Sustainability. Every summer, Ryan would come back to work with his dad and get more hands-on experience.

After school, Ryan went on to work on massive projects with general contracting company, Walsh Construction. Ryan worked on several million dollar and billion dollar projects around the United States - ranging from airports to student housing to highly-complex medical facilities. This period of time at Walsh was invaluable experience as he learned how a large general contractor and developer would look at, and plan for, a project of grand scale. He took this experience and applied it to the business he was dreaming of until he could get the funds to take on projects himself!
