Ryan Speight

Speight Built is led by Ryan Speight who has been constructing custom homes in the Wake County area since 2007. A native of Greenville, North Carolina, Ryan comes from a family entrenched in all aspects of real estate, construction and development, thus creating an active involvement from an early age.

Upon graduation from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management, Ryan relocated to Raleigh where he began to focus on upscale residential construction while earning a Master of Business Administration degree from North Carolina State University. Ryan has received many industry acknowledgements and awards including Gold medals in the Wake County Parade of Homes in high-end price categories, the 2016 Raleigh HGTV Smart Home, and the 2015 Duke-Progress Energy Green Home.

The combination of these experiences equipped Ryan with an in-depth knowledge of high-end construction and the ability to incorporate energy-efficient practices and smart technology, which are becoming increasingly important in today’s housing environment. His passion for quality of material and attention to detail have crafted a brand that clients come to. Ryan currently sits on the Raleigh Advisory Housing Committee and is a frequent speaker at Builder Panels discussing market trends and construction techniques.
