Founded in 2017, Bluegrass Financial Partners became into existence out of Ryan Snellen's desire to provide his clients with independent and honest financial planning. Ryan spent time in the corporate financial planning world where he saw first hand the limitations of corporate firms.
Ryan is a decorated Hall of Fame runner with honors and records held at both Central Hardin High School and at Belmont University. His competitiveness is what drives his work ethic. He is always working to provide the best options for his clients. Each client relationship is unique and an ever improving landscape.
Early in his young adult life Ryan dove head first into the Nashville real estate scene by purchasing a few properties within a mile from downtown. A risky, yet fruitful move for a young entrepreneur. In the years to follow there have been many other investments; from antique cars to additional real estate endeavors. It is safe to say Ryan does not shy away from a challenge, all the while maintaining trust and security. He is passionate about many things be it family, his church, running, private piloting, or antique cars. Though he finds most excitement in building lifelong relationships with those who've instilled their trust in him.
