Ken Rusch was born in raised in Santa Rosa, California to a real estate developer from the Tri-cities. After serving four years in the United States Army, Ken was honorably discharged in 1996 after his father’s passing where he transitioned into the family business. He moved to the Kittitas Valley in 2002 where he began his career in property management. Although only living in the valley for the past 16 years, his ties extend back to the 1930’s, when his grandparents migrated from Oklahoma and started their family. With both of his parents being in real estate and property development, Ken has spent most of his adult life in and around the real estate community. When Ken is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, his Wife Deena, 3-year-old son Karsten, 2-year old daughter Kennedy and 17-year-old step–daughter Kodee. Ken is also a director for the Kittitas County Association of Realtors and helps in the community, when time permits.
