Rusty Rains, REALTOR®/Broker
My Philosophy About You
First, let me thank you for taking the time to read this - You have the choice of literally a thousand real estate agents in Indiana and you’ve found yourself here. That’s a good start for both of us.
My name is Rusty, and it’s important that you understand who I am and what makes me unique in this space. I am foremost a husband and father. My wife and I have been married for 2 years and we have a young daughter. I was born and raised in Columbus, Indiana, but currently I reside in Greenwood, Indiana. I have also lived in Orange County California and Peoria Illinois. My wife and I have hectic lives just like you! We are raising our young daughter, living out our faith every day, and making time for our family. Nothing is more important than my family. Sure, I know that it’s not a good business practice to tell a potential client that there is something more important than you. I want you to understand that my passion for my faith and my family is what makes me understand your needs better.
Let me clear up the mystery of “why” I perform as I do as a real estate professional. You see, I’ve been with my clients, clients like you, when they have just found out that their parent has died unexpectedly, when their child has been accepted to the perfect college, when they found out a child is sick, when they find out the house they’ve always wanted is going to be theirs, when they discover that the addition of a new child is going to require expansion, when they have to sell their home in order to survive, when their worlds are crashing down, and when life is the best it’s ever going to be. I get the privilege of being there for both good life experiences and some bad ones as well; but all are experiences. For many these are monumental experiences in their lives and I get, for the briefest of times, to be a supporting character in my client’s story. My passion is to ensure that my brief part in your life-story has a positive legacy.
To most real estate professionals, the client is a “deal” or a “transaction”. However, to me, you’re the person who is trusting me to safeguard your interest, give you a better consumer experience and be a trusted advisor so that your story can find the best possible happy ending.
I know that there are always opportunities, often small opportunities, that can make any experience better. I aim to find those opportunities and ensure that your experience is the best possible. It’s why I have invested heavily in advanced training in many aspects of my practice.
I’m here to serve you. You are the employer and I am the employee. It’s my responsibility to serve your needs and protect your interests. Feel free to reach out to me and see how I’m unique and how I can partner with you and your family to have a positive experience selling or purchasing your next home.
My real estate career started in 2007. I went through the F.C. Tucker School of Real Estate. I then joined a firm in Columbus called Team Advantage GMAC. They were eventually sold and became Real Living Team Advantage. I went to Remax Results for 2 years and then had an opportunity that moved me from the area. Upon the return to Indiana, I had to find the best fit for me and my family. I want a culture that will let me serve my clients and help us both succeed.
During my real estate career, I have served on the leadership team for the Crossroads Association of Realtors. I was the Treasurer, I sat on the Board of Directors, and I was an Operating Manager for the MLS. I also lead marketing events for my previous firms.
Juli is my wife and we’ve been married for over 2 years. We have an amazing daughter that was born March 2017. That was a scary time for us do to her being 5.5 weeks early. We enjoy spending time with family. We also have a German Shephard mix dog named Baylee and 2 cats Bella and Landon. Yes, we love animals. In addition to being an outstanding mother and wife, Juli also works as a Marriage and Family Therapist for Adult and Child. We attend church at Greenwood Christian Church.
