About Me

I am originally an upstate New York native and moved to Harford County, MD in 2010. When I’m not in the office or out meeting clients, I enjoy spending time with my spouse and our two cats Mike & Ike. I am on the Board of Directors of Luna’s House Animal Rescue, and I am an animal rights activist, an auto racing enthusiast, an amateur chef, and a terrible gardener. In the hours that remain you’ll be most likely to find me under the hood of one of my project cars, or on the couch trapped by a sleepy Mike or Ike.

My Philosophy

Everyone has things worth protecting in life – let’s talk about what’s most important to you. I can help you find the best, most cost-effective way to properly protect the things in your life worth protecting and guide you for years to come. If there’s a way to better protect you and yours, I’ll do my best to find it!

Years of experience: 7+ Years Customer Service & Sales

Working With Ryan

What Clients are Saying

“By Far the BEST!”

My fiancé and I dealt with Ryan Bastian during our search for insurance. We were in the middle of closing on our home and needed home insurance stat! He was so incredibly professional and handled us with much care. He was quick and efficient in searching for the best deal! During his search, he also found auto insurance quotes that not only saved us money, but offered better coverage than ur current auto insurance at that time. He was by far one of the BEST that I’ve had the pleasure in working with. Highly recommend him!

Saved Over $1000 Per Year

After recently buying a new car I started really looking into new and improved insurance options.  I’ve bin with the same carrier for 32 years, but recently changed agents and we’re new to Gerety. We’re very happy we made the move to Gerety. Ryan Bastian was incredible to work with and saved us over $1000 per year. Super knowledgeable about the industry and products he could offer. Everyone in the Gerety office is very helpful and they seem to really be focused on taking care of their customers. Thank you so much Ryan!

“10/10 Would Recommend”

Ryan has been super helpful in the transition of switching our home & auto policies. He’s super responsive (even on the weekends!) and of course him saving us $70/month was amazing too! If you’re looking to switch insurance companies, reach out to Ryan. He went above and beyond what I was expecting. 10/10 would recommend!“

— Krystal Rusnak

“He Saved Me $$$!”

I called your office to add ANOTHER vehicle to our policy.  Ryan suggested to go over the policy, I’m glad I agreed.  He saved me $$$!  Ryan was patience, professional and very kind.  I know I always have several questions ,because we have everything with you, this is one of the reasons…your Staff!  Ryan went above and beyond.  He stayed in contact through out the day to make sure the changes were completed, he dropped off the documents at Davids shop when they were completed. Thanks again for having the right people for the job!
