In 2001 started out in real estate with my best friend as an investor in Maricopa County, better known for the major city that lies within it's boarder: Phoenix, AZ. Here we researched and purchased foreclosures. It was a time when you didn't have to "know" anything about real estate and you still could make money. How times have changed, and thankfully so have I.

In the "glory days we would buy a house on Tuesday, fix it by Friday, sell it on Sunday. With my "knowledge" I moved to Florida in 2004, and became a licensed Realtor(R). For two years I helped dozens of families in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Lehigh Acres buy and sell homes. As i began to see the world start to change in 2005 I went back to my roots and expertise in Foreclosures and Short Sales. I began to build my book of business 100% from Short Sales. Currently over 90% of my business is listing and selling short sales. I help buyers find great properties, at reduced prices via short sales and foreclosures. Most of the buyers i work with are cash paying clients, and those that need financing i have a direct relationship with a lender to help them through that process. All in all I would say my strength in the Real Estate Business is knowledge. I became a student again, and feel that any true expert is the best student. This mentality allows me to properly prepare CMA's, BPO's, and communicate good information to sellers, lenders, and buyers alike on a piece of property. This information allows for 99% success on Short Sales, it allowed for almost 50 properties to be sold in 2009 via short sale and almost 40 in 2010.

My biggest plight now, is to get 100% deficiency judgement waiver for all my short sales. This is not a focus of many agents and it leads to many homeowners down the wrong path.

    Bought a home in 2012.
    Justin passed my expectations of a real estate agent. He was very kind, friendly, and down to earth. We worked with him a little over 2 months. The whole time he was on top of everything. This guy knows what he's talking about when it comes to real estate! I wouldnt recommend anyone else but him. If you arent working with Justin Rusicka, your missing out!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Fort Myers, FL.
    No pressure, spent the time with us & listened to what we wanted. After narrowing down to 10 properties, all of which we visited & liked, we found this property and settled on a price. A few other things worth mentioning about Justin; he helped the homeowner and us settle on a great price and saved us $14k, he narrowed our list, printed specs, & coordinated the house viewings & arranged for keys the same day we first met him for the same afternoon visits! We were finished by 6pm that same day! Honest, straight forward advice, & trustworthy, teaches Bible study at his church!  MoreLess

    Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $75K in Fort Myers, FL.
    I was referred to Justin to help me shortsell my investment condo that i was upside down in over $130,000. I have perfect credit and wanted to keep it that way. I didn't have to stop paying so my credit didnt get hit with late payments. Justin was very knowledgeable and an excellent negotiator! He not only did all the leg work and handled everything with the lender, he also helped me short sell my investment property without having to pay a penny at closing. All my friends who are still upside down on their investments cant believe im finally FREE!! Justin honestly is a short sale expert. I highly recommend him to everyone who wants to be free of their upside down headache! Or if they just want to purchase a home. He also sells homes in fort myers. He will be my fort myers realtor from now on. Thank you!  MoreLess
