About

My name is Cody Ruegg and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. First off I would like to thank you for visiting my Tour Factory page. We live in a time where every second matters, so thank you so very much.

I started in this business in 2006 (good timing on my part) but in actuality my career in real estate began much earlier than that. My grandfather, grandmother, father and mother... also some distant relatives were or still are in the real estate business. Some of my fondest memories are of sitting with my grandfather, who has since passed on, as a child and as a young man listening to him tell stories. He was a great story teller! My grandfather is a big part of who I am today and who I aspire to become. He was a true friend to many people, even some people he had never met. He was also a pioneer in the real estate business for his time and always looked for new and innovative ways to help people.

We are now in a time of ever expanding technology where people are able to search out information on anything and everything imaginable from the comfort of their own home. Because of the technological advances made on a daily basis todays homebuyers and sellers are much more educated than previous generations. As a professional real estate broker I feel the two most important elements of tis business are client relationships built upon trust and commitment to serving my clients needs. The second, but equally important, is marketing using the most current and up to date technology available to the real estate industry. Because of todays technology home buyers are able to search for homes without leaving the couch. Pretty awesome. However, todays technology can also create problems for home sellers and buyers. While listing your home on the market it is critical to have the right marketing in place. Your home and the marketing of your home has just been put under the light of a very high powered microscope for the general public to examine. When home buyers are looking for homes the list of criteria they are looking for can be quite substantial. Todays home buyers will study a listing like they are cramming for the attorney Bar exam the next morning. If a buyer sees something as little as the wrong word used in the description of a home they will be lost forever. Ironically, in my experience the buyers that I have worked with over the years have purchased homes different from what they were looking for, yes still similar but I can't tell you how many times I have had a buyer say "I don't really like this house but because it's in the neighborhood we are looking in we might as well take a look" and next thing I know they are making an offer on that house because something wasn't included in the marketing that made all the difference in the world.

Again, if you're still reading thank you for your time:)

As I mentioned earlier, my business is built on trust and relationships. My business starts and ends with a handshake. A handshake is my commitment and the bond of my word.
