Ron Rubin hangs his license at RE/MAX Metro Realty in Seattle, but he is also the self-proclaimed “anti-real estate agent.”
Ron likes to keep things simple, staying focused on what’s most important and not worrying much about what other people think about him. He’s not one to get excited about awards – not because he doesn’t appreciate it – but because he doesn’t enjoy basking in the spotlight. Ron’s claim to fame in high school was having no claim to fame in school. He’s been fired from every job he ever had and that’s why he became a real estate agent. But with a stellar team, legendary systems and ~$16M in BuiltGreen certified new construction home sales last year – he is obviously no slouch. Ron is well known in Seattle for taking care of his builder clients with bulldog loyalty and finding deals through thick and thin.
One of the first times I met Ron he was wrestling his young toddler at a playground on Queen Anne and explaining that while it’s difficult to have babies without grandparents nearby, he expects nothing from them because it allows him to accept everything that comes from them with gratitude. Perhaps the culture of thankfulness comes in part from his experience narrowly escaping the tsunami that ravaged Thailand in the winter of 2005. He and his partner Rebecca stayed in Thailand to set up a guerilla relief fund called Waves of Mercy to provide “zero-red-tape” monetary aid to the people who needed help right away.
Ron’s MO is connecting resources to his people who need it - no need for a spotlight or a claim to fame.
