Ryan Hodges
Ryan Hodges’ grandparents bought a second home in Bath in the early 60s and he spent his summers here with cousins. His family moved here in ’68 and renovated Oakley Farm. His step-father, Dutch von Schilling, bought into Clarkson & Wallace. In 1985, Ryan returned home with his wife, Mary, and a newborn daughter, Cabell, to join Dutch in Clarkson & Wallace. Ryan’s real estate work, trail running, fishing, and cycling took him to every corner of both counties. “I am so lucky to have been able to focus on the stunning landscape here as a job. I love my work!”  Email Ryan or call 540.969.6700
