When you meet Rick Brunton you’ll quickly realize that he is defined by the importance he places on his knowledge, strong work ethic, and positive attitude.  Even though he pushed himself to be one of the top five of his high school’s graduating class, and excelled academically in college; Rick didn’t learn his iron-clad work ethic from a book or by sitting in a class room.

He learned it working long hours with his father who built a successful grocery business to support the family.  At the time Rick thought that he was learning the grocery business, but in time he found that he was really learning life lessons that he now applies every day in his professional and personal life.

“I have a degree in business, but I have learned so
much more running my own business. I apply
that knowledge to my clients’ real estate dreams.”

Rick’s father wasn’t someone who just operated things behind the scenes, he was there from the time the store opened until it closed, every day. You could find him stocking the shelves and working the checkout stands throughout the day, attending to the needs of every customer.

At the advice of his father, Rick enrolled in college while maintaining his full time job so he could further his aspirations. While majoring in business he learned the fundamentals of business theory, law, and history; but never forgot the lessons he learned working with his father.

With the drive to continue working hard and further his education, Rick joined the Army Officer Candidate School. Upon earning his honorable discharge, Rick assumed ownership of the family business and successfully continued to help it grow before deciding to sell it to a larger company.

When this savvy businessman isn’t working with his clients these days, he and his wife, Cheryl, serve on the finance committee of the local YMCA and participate in programs that fund scholarships and help to send children to day camp.

Rick understands that learning about something in a classroom and applying that knowledge in the real world are two different things, but when combined with his life experiences and dedication they have provided him with a unique advantage in this difficult market.

Rick has continued to further his education in real estate, a dedication that has propelled rick to become one of the top real estate agents in South Franklin County. Rick is a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and a Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), which many equate to a masters degree in real estate.
