Meet the ESR Team

Ryan and Tiffany Kelly

Owners of
Ecuador Shores Realty

Ryan and Tiffany are both Florida beach natives and met in the summer of 2008. From early on in their relationship they knew that they had something special, and in Tiffany’s words “this was going to last awhile”! They were married in 2015 at the Don Cesar Beach Resort in St. Petersburg FL, and soon after welcomed a beautiful baby boy who is their world. They both love being parents and share a deep passion for life and family.

Tiffany has been in administrative and executive account services for over 12 years and is a diligent and focused individual. She is responsible for much of the day to day tasks that keep ESR running smoothly including contracts, scheduling, PR and more. She is the ying to Ryan’s yang which makes for a perfect husband & wife team, that helps keep Ecuador Shores Realty the power house that it is.

Ryan has been in sales, management, and training for over 30 years and brings a level of ethics, professionalism, and success to the business that is hard to find in today’s market. Ryan credits much of his integrity and character to his loving parents Buzz and Carol Kelly, who helped instill in him a strong moral code and desire to “always do the right thing”.
Ryan and Tiffany began in the Manta Ecuador real estate market in early 2011 and noticed early on the strong need for ethical and professional real estate services. Upon opening Ecuador Shores Realty, they quickly became known throughout the area as the top pick for anyone looking for honest and trustworthy real estate representation. Through years of hard work and dedication, they have earned the trust of locals and expats alike, as well as more letters of recommendation from area builders and companies than all other expat agencies combined! Today Ecuador Shores Realty continues to dominate the local market as the #1 top producing and most recommended expat realty company in the area, and we owe it all to clients just like you!
Victor Mena has lived his life dedicated to helping others. He and his family operated a thriving business here in the Manta area for over 20years. To help serve in a time of need, he spent several years over seas in the Middle East as a firefighter during the Iraqi conflict.
Ryan and Victor met on one of Ryan’s first trips to Ecuador, and from the very beginning they developed a deep bond of friendship. As Ecuador Shores Realty grew, it was our great pleasure to bring Victor in as part of the family! Over the years Victor has been an integral part of our business. His local knowledge and experience, plus fluent English, accentuates his abilities and accomplishments. He shows a dedication to clients and their happiness that is hard to find, and everyone always comments about what a positive experience they have working with Victor!

Wes Keir

ESR Team agent

Wes Keir is another Florida native who found his way to the beaches of Ecuador. Coming from a business background and history of owning a successful company, he decided to venture out of the continental US and opened up his own real estate company in Puerto Cayo Ecuador in 2015. Within just a few short years he quickly rose to the top of the local market there.
We met Wes when he first moved to the area and became quick friends. When Wes decided to expand his market reach and join the ESR team, we were happy to welcome him on board! Today Wes is a valuable part of the ESR team and has continued his dedication to client service that earned him his track record of happy clients!
Stella is another of our Ecuadorian natives and also speaks English fluently. She previously worked in administrative areas for several large companies, managing multiple accounts and team members.

With Ecuador Shores Realty, Stella currently handles much of our business in the major city of Guayaquil, specializing in the affluent area of Samborondon. This area is known for high end luxury homes and condos along the riverfront, and Stella has become a quick expert in the local market. She is helping to expand the ESR brand in one of the most desirable areas of the country, and we look forward to seeing all that she accomplishes!

Bruce Flemming

ESR Team Agent

Bruce is a US expat out of California who decided to spread his wings outside of the hustle and bustle of the mainland, and move to the beachfront in Manta Ecuador. He quickly found his calling as a real estate, helping other fellow expats to follow in the same steps that lead him to the beach life.
Bruce has traveled all over Ecuador and has learned plenty about the country and local markets. He is a wealth of knowledge about what Ecuador has to offer, not just in Manta, but in other areas as well. He continues to be a solid and trustworthy real estate agent and we are lucky to have him on the ESR Team!

Every Great Accomplishment Starts With The Decision To Try


We would like to officially announce to all of our current and future clients that we will be welcoming our first child into the world on or around November 7th 2016 and we could not be happier! We think of all of you as close family and friends and we are thrilled to be able to share this wonderful moment with you. The future star’s name will be Gage Kelly and we look forward to all of you meeting him!


Well ladies and gentlemen it is finally official….WE’RE MARRIED!! After close to 6 years of dating I decided to make every guy in the world jealous by taking the beautiful, now Mrs. Tiffany Kelly, off the market forever! We were married in an absolutely gorgeous setting at the famous Don Cesar Beach Resort in St Petersburg Florida and were surrounded by our loving family and friends for what was truly one of the best days of my life! I love you Tiffany Kelly, and look forward to everything that the future holds for us!

I’m a Florida Boy in the truest sense of the word. I have sun in my heart and sand in my shoes. I’ve always had a special connection with the ocean and with the people who live by it. Through high school and college, whatever job I had, I always found time to break away for surf and travel.

That’s not to say I didn’t work hard for the good life. Early on in my career I realized that if I wanted to achieve positive results, I had to work hard to accomplish my goals. So I pursued my professional passion – sales and entrepreneurism – and I worked in investor relations industry for the stock market for over 15 years. I’ve managed firms, opened new locations, trained teams of representatives and sales floors, even owned my own firm and I’m proud to say that I achieved a track record of success at virtually every place I’ve worked. Yet all those awards and urban high life weren’t a substitute for the sun and water. In 2011 my brother and his wife moved to Ecuador and I began to make trips to visit them.

One visit and I understood why they moved. The ocean, the climate and the wonderful culture were exactly what I had been dreaming of. So when my brother called and told me about an investment property he heard about I jumped at the opportunity. Over the next year, myself and my two business partners bought and sold two more large properties. It was then that the “light bulb” really went off, I saw the true potential of the country’s West coast and the decision was made to live here full time. Happily for me, my longtime partner and new Fiance (and now wife) Tiffany was equally enthusiastic, so we started our new adventure and relocated together.

It wasn’t long before we became well versed with Ecuador’s real estate market, especially the area around Manta where we now live. All along this coast we’ve made local friends and key business/political connections as we’ve progressed to be the premiere agency in town . We’ve learned where, how and when to rent, lease, buy or sell a wide variety of real estate from condos and homes to raw land. If it’s on beach, we know how to help you!

Today, we are the absolute #1 top producing and most recommended expat real estate company in the greater Manta area. I work as hard as I ever did, but I love it that much more! Instead of an intense rush hour drive to work downtown, before breakfast I sneak in an hour of surfing on the beach behind our condo. Instead of the high pressure sales of the stock market, I help people find their dream locations to live and invest on the coast. And instead of wondering why the world can’t get along, I enjoy international cultural diversity everyday!

Our Commitment To You

If you are interested in living or investing along the West Coast of Ecuador, it would be my privilege to provide you with honest, dependable, experienced real estate service.

I am committed to helping you realize your dream by showing you options, acquainting you with the culture, and making sure you have a secure, positive business experience.
