Get to Know Rusty Rains

Providing customer service beyond customers expectations is obviously something you would expect. Nobody does it better. With all of my premier training and guidance from my broker, who use to be with the top 2% in sales in the nation, I know how to get homes sold. I use the latest Internet marketing tools to expose your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers. 

As a lifelong resident of Columbus Indiana, I can put his insider knowledge to work to find a special property in your neighbourhood of choice. I was born and raised in Columbus Indiana. So why choose me as your real estate agent? For one thing, i really listens to you and will work tirelessly on your behalf. I am a real estate agent with passion for realizing people's dreams of home ownership. My 100% customer satifaction rating through a third party company tells everything you need to know.

Prior to becoming a real estate sales agent, I worked for Grindstone Charley's for almost 4 years. I started as a dinning room assistant and worked my way to a cook. As my real estate business began to grow i left Grindstone Charley's to pursue my real estate dreams. I have also worked for Securitas security company for a year.

It has always been my goal to provide excellent customer service. It has become second nature for me, so it only makes sense to place myself into an occupation that fully utilizes my abilities.

As a professional real estate sales partner I assist sellers in marketing theirproperty and selling it for the highest possible price under the best terms available. When I act as a Buyer's Agent, I assist buyers by helping them purchase property for the best possible price under the best terms avaiable. Prviding Customer service beyond customers expectations is with out question.

My question to you: Do you want your home listed or do you want your home SOLD?

Our Heritage:In November, 2009, Brookfield Residential Services merged GMAC Real Estate and Real Living together to build upon both already established franchise networks. Go forward, the Real Living brand will persist throughout the US. To understand Real Living as a franchisor it is best to begin with some insight into of all three companies involved with the merger.

Brookfield Residential Services:Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is an organization focused on property, power and infrastructure with over $90 Billion of assets in management. This financially stable organization boasts a portfolio of powerhouse real estate brands including Royal LePage, LeCapitale and Johnston and Daniel in Canada, and Real Living Real Estate and GMAC Real Estate in the US. Additionally, Brookfield owns and operates the second largest global relocation service company and via the merger with Real Living is making a significant investment in the US, one which will lead to growth and a superior marketing and technology platform for the network.

GMAC:The GMAC real estate brand was launched in 1999 with the acquisition of Better Homes and Gardens. Today, it is a network of prominent real estate brokerages who embrace common values principles and practices of Premier Service. GMAC brokerages will be converting and re-branding to Real Living throughout 2010.

Real Living:The Real Living Brand was launched in 2002 with the merger of three large real estate firms in Ohio. The founding companies within Real Living have deep roots in the business dating back to 1956. In 2002, the new organization had an opportunity to build a new, fresh and unique brand that would unify the three brokerages. And, an opportunity to build a brand with agent and consumer appeal that would fuel a growth and franchising effort nationally. Prior to the aforementioned merger, Real Living had franchise offices throughout 20 states.

Real Living is the brand which is being carried forward for the combined entity. The franchise and agent value proposition has been enhanced for both networks as the best of the best from both GMAC and Real Living were combined to create the best and one of the largest real estate franchises in the US.
