Mike Rust  - REALTOR®

I'm a Florida native and have spent the last 27 years in Alachua County. I have a diverse background as Polish and Spanish linguist in the US Army and have spent many years in real estate, spanning mortgage lending to real estate investment.

I'm a husband to Amber and father to Jacob and Paige. When I'm not assisting families in what is most likely the largest financial transaction in their lives, I'm playing music in a local band, The Medicine Show.
