In 10 Minutes

McKenzie Ryan

Real Estate at Compass / Named Power Broker by Forbes




You are an athlete, performer and New York City Power Broker who walks the streets like a model. If faced with only 10 minutes to get ready for a listing what’s most important your glam from the neck up, your face and hair or the total look neck down?

The most important is the confidence and positive aura that I bring to a first impression. That confidence lies in my total look from the neck down. Feeling beautiful and strong tend to radiate and resonate with those whom I meet— so the entirety of my look is where I am focusing my 10 minutes! My hair and face are typically in pretty good shape!

You receive a call for a listing in LA. If faced with only 10 minutes to pack what are you packing?

I am packing at least 10 dresses, my magenta pink pumps, my black sandal heels, my vintage black turtle neck that was my mother’s and probably 5-6 pairs of high waisted pants. I must have my headphones to listen to music and choreograph dances in my head. I wear the same set of 3 rings which have great significance to me and that’s about all I need to get going! 

If faced with only 10 minutes for some self-care after a hectic day, no phone, no computer, peace and quiet, what are you doing?

I put on my music and I dance in a darkly lit place. Certain songs and music just speak to me, and inspire me to do more. Even after an extremely busy day, I feel motivated to push myself and to dream bigger.

What would you do with an extra 10 minutes a day?

I would spend more time playing with my dog Winter. We’ve been together since I was 14 years old, and lately, I’ve been feeling like I haven’t had enough time to be with her. An extra 10 minutes to play around with Winter would be really wonderful.
