Cutler Real Estate asked Stephanie a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Stephanie's replies.

1. What is your professional/educational background?

I have been everything from a stockbroker to a software engineer; from a yoga instructor to a public relations consultant. I hold both a law degree and an MBA from THE Ohio State University, as well as a graduate degree in international negotiations from the top negotiations school in the world, Erasmus University, The Netherlands, as well as a bachelors degree in psychology and management from Boston College, where I was elected into the Honors Program (top 8% of students). 

To learn more about my background, check out this podcast:

2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?

I love solving problems and helping people achieve their dreams. Real estate allows me

3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?

I live on the border of both New Albany and Gahanna, and I absolutely love it!

4. How do you spend your free time?

I volunteer over one hundred hours a year in the community with groups like Experience Columbus, The Columbus Foundation, The Ohio Farm Bureau, The Department of Homeland Security, and the New Albany Police department. I love to cook, go to live shows, and spend plenty of time trying to exhaust a puppy.

5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?

  1. My wool comforter
  2. An Italian statue my mother brought with her when she immigrated to the U.S.
  3. My phone
  4. A comfortable pair of shoes to wander the world
  5. My survival training from Homeland Security says I should bring three gallons of water so I think they would fire me if I didn't mention that!

6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?

When we bought our house, we were on a short timeline with pretty high expectations for the home we hoped to find. When we spoke to Steph, she didn’t hesitate – she said “let’s get started tomorrow!” She came with great referrals from our friends so we said, let’s do it. She listened to us, to our needs and wants, and she has an impeccable memory of those things as she plans homes to visit. She followed every home interest up by pointing things out that homes didn’t have that we had said were important to us, like a pantry and being “Move-in ready.” She’s got a great sense of pointing things out that may be high cost repairs we wouldn’t have otherwise known about, like bad roof, old HVAC, bad fence, bad driveway. As first-time home buyers, she was excellent with being patient with us with our many questions – she explained everything to us so that we understood. She also took great attention to help us make sure our offers were competitive on homes we really wanted. Steph is responsive, funny, and really took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. I’d recommend Steph to anyone, she’s they KEY to your HOME success !

Stephanie made my first home buying experience pleasant and easy. She was able to understand what I wanted in a house and make good recommendations. She worked around my busy schedule and responded promptly when I had questions. I couldn't be happier with her, and I love my new house!

Stephanie Rucinski has been a true blessing to us! Not only to us but actually to most of our family. She has helped 5 individual families whithin my family with selling and purchasing homes. Her honesty and loyalty cannot be beat! She took her time with us and we could feel that our happiness was her main concern. It took us about a year to find a house and Stephanie was beyond patient with us as we changed our minds many times what we were looking for. She helped us score the deal on our new home where there were many offers and sold our condo after one open house!! She is truly amazing and knows this business inside and out! I can't wait to work with her again in the future!

Stephanie is Awesome! She worked with us to find a great home and was with us through the whole process. She responded to our questions usually within half an hour. She also helped us on some last minute negotiations with the builder after the appraisal came in a little low. Even with that hiccup, we were able to keep things moving and closed pretty much on time. I highly recommend her as she did a great job of representing our interests.

Picking Stephanie to be out Realtor was the best decision we could have made in the home buying process. When we got into a situation where we were one of multiple offers on our home, she made sure we made the most appealing offer but also made sure we didn't over pay. When we were stressed and freaking out over how quickly the market was changing, she made sure we were the first showing. She responded to our frantic texts and phone calls late at night and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. I will never use another Realtor as long as I live in Columbus! Thanks Stephanie.

I cannot say enough good and amazing things about Steph! My husband and I are first time home buyers and we met Steph at an open house she was hosting. From the minute we started talking, I knew she was exactly the realtor we wanted to work with. She kept us well informed of the market, listened to our wants, and helped us find the perfect place to come home to. I felt like we had a friend in this process that completely "got" both of us and truly cared about us throughout the process. After entering an offer that wasn't accepted (which completely devastated us a few years back), she kept us in the best spirits and helped us find our home. She has a heart of gold and worked with our crazy schedules to make sure we saw everything we wanted before we made the offer that was accepted! We are so incredibly happy and fortunate to have met Steph and had her work with us throughout this entire process. If I could give an infinite amount of stars, I would!!

Stephanie has been awesome. She listens, responds quick, and works VERY hard for her clients. After moving to Ohio from out of state, she assisted me in purchasing 2 homes for my family. I always felt like I was a top priority and I highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs.

I had no idea of how the process of searching for a house worked. Stephanie met with me and listened to a horrible explanation of what I wanted. I really didn't know what I wanted. She planned a day of looking at different types and quality of homes to get an idea of what I liked and didn't like. One day after a lot of surfing the web, out of nowhere, she asked if I was interested in a home, I took a late night ride and knew it was my house. The next day I had put in an offer. She put in the offer and kept me updated and was very understanding of me bugging her with questions of when the seller was going to accept the offer. Once the offer was accepted she continued to keep me informed of what will be next in the process of finalizing my purchase. I will recommend her to anyone that needs a realtor. Easy to talk with.

Stephanie is an amazing realtor. She sold our condo in one day and showed us the perfect house to move to that same weekend. Stephanie is experienced, knowledgeable, gets things done, and supports you if/when the buying and selling process gets overwhelming. She even manages to make you laugh throughout it all. I could not recommend her more highly!
