Thad Rankin

Ok, so when it comes to home buying and selling, one of these is more pertinent than the other. However, they are both near and dear to my heart. For purposes of why you’re here, I’ll try and stick to homes.

And you are?

Thad Rankin, nice to meet you! I am a Realtor, but also father…husband…friend. A Wisconsin native born and raised in La Crosse but have spent the past decade in the beautiful lake, forest and kettle moraine infused area of south-eastern Wisconsin. I will admit I’ve moved out of state on at least 3 separate occasions and can assure you the reason I’ve come back every time is because this is indisputably the greatest state in the entire world. Unless you’re here seeking my out-of-state relocation support in which case…I hear that place you are moving to is really nice this time of year!

So…why Real Estate?

It’s always been something I wanted to pursue but I wanted to be ready. After serving in the Air Force and following that up with a decade working in Compliance and Audit, I was comfortable I had enough experience to support my claims of having high attention to detail and ability to keep cool under pressure. However, the MOST important thing I took away from all those years working with data and spreadsheets is this: It’s horribly, horribly boring. Which is ultimately what brought me to this unbelievably rewarding profession! Because you know what’s not boring? You!! You are not boring!

I became a Realtor because my passion lies in building relationships and being the real estate expert to any and all who give me that opportunity. From the first conversation I have with you through to closing on that sweet real estate deal, I have the pleasure of getting to know you; getting to know what you’re passionate about, your unique situation, your likes and dislikes—it all matters and the more I know, the better I can serve!

I will ALWAYS put your best interests FIRST. Plain and simple. You deserve that and you should never accept anything less. Especially when it comes to making one of the biggest and most important investment you will ever make.

With that guarantee comes my ever-growing and up-to-date knowledge of the ins-and-outs of real estate, strong negotiation on your behalf, and a relentless pursuit to see your home buying and selling goals and dreams come to fruition.

So, we good? Or maybe you’d like to know more? Reach out! I’d love to hear from you!
