More About Me

Welcome to my Website

I want to personally thank all my past and current clients for bestowing on me Century 21's Pinnacle Quality Service Award for my service to you! It just goes to prove that I aim to honor my motto of "Straight Talk, Honest Answers and Hard Work from Your Real Estate Consultant for Life". This award is presented annually to a very select few who have strived to achieve the highest results for their clients for numerous years in a row, and have succeeded to where their clients have provided testimonials to their service.

With extensive and thorough real estate experience in all of the Indianapolis areas including Downtown, Meridian Kessler, Butler Tarkington, Carmel, Fishers, Avon, Brownsburg, Zionsville, Noblesville and other communities around Indianapolis, as well as intimate local area knowledge, I work extensively to help buyers and sellers meet all their real estate goals.

As a listing agent in Marion and surrounding counties, my extensive marketing plan gives a homeowner the opportunity to get the maximum value for their property.

For buyers, I help negotiate the best possible deal and search until I find the perfect property. Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful sale or the purchase of a lifetime.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home or would just like to know some more information about anything to do with real estate, feel free to call or email me.

Thanks again for choosing me as your on-line real estate resource for the greater Indianapolis Metro area.

Professional Background

I have been a licensed REALTOR with Century 21 since 1996. I started with Century 21 At The Crossing, which merged with Century 21 Scheetz. I decided to stay with the proven brand, the #1 recognized name in Real Estate, and the Scheetz name was synonomous with quality service. I have closed over 600 transactions, and there is nothing like being a part of the purchase of someone's first home. It is special.

I believe that the Quality Service Pinnacle Award I achieved is more important to any amount of money I could make, because it it a rating scale from my clients. I have to achieve a very high rating with EVERY transaction in order to maintain this, and I do.

I also enjoy working with new and experienced investors. Having been in the rental market my entire life with my family, I understand the whole process, and more importantly, I live it with the properties I own today.

I strive to be the best advisor for my clients; will keep an open line of communication, and keep the upmost confidentiality with my clients.

Please rely on me for all your Real Estate needs.

Personal Background

I have been in Indianapolis since 1989, after a brief stint in 1986. I have lived in many places prior to Indy, and settled here because I had met my beautiful wife, Mary, and because the people of Indy are unlike any others in the USA. Indianapolis is a city that has always progressed forward, always wants to be at the forefront of the nation, always strives for greatness, much the way I do.

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Food Science & Nutrition, which is a tremendous help with my Real Estate career.

I graduated from St. Charles Borromeo Preparatory School, in Columbus, OH, and credit this education with my love of knowledge and to strive for greatness. At St. Charlers is where I was taught the Golden Rule- to treat all others as you would want them to treat you, to always do the right thing regardless, and be a good listener.

I come from a family of 4 brothers and 1 sister, and along with my wife's family, have 28 nieces and nephews, and 9 grand nieces and nephews!! They are both large families, and we are all still very close thanks to the guidance and inspiration of our parents.

Personal Interests

Along with my beautiful wife of 20 years, Mary, we have 2 great children, Anna and Patrick. Anna has help us become fans of theatre, with her involvement with Young Actors Theater. Patrick enjoys sports, including rugby (my passion), and computers.

Like I mentioned above, my passion, next to my family, is rugby. I have been a part of the sport since 1978 in every aspect. Currently I am coaching one of the High School Club's I helped form in 1990, The Royal Irish Rugby Society (we have won the National Club Championship 4 of the last 7 years!); assisting referee's as a coach mentor, and helping Patrick become an all around player. Rugby is a lifestyle, one that many of my friends have lived around most of our lives, and I hope to be able to be invloved with it for the rest of my life as well.

Outside of that:

> Coached numerous sports, won championships too numerous to bother here.

> I was an original member of the Century 21 Scheetz Foundation, which assists those with housing and other needs throughout the Greater Indianapolis area.

> I am involved with my parish, St. Thomas Aquinas, where I helped form The Aquinas Men's Service Club, which helps the school, parish and community in many ways. 

> I am a Past President of the Board at the Northside Knights of Columbus where I served for 9 years, and am a 3rd Degree Knight, .

> I have been able to spread my mission of giving to my family where we help at the Boulevard Place St. Vincent dePaul Food Pantry and many other charitable organizations and efforts.

> This inner mission started with my family through my parents, and will continue in mine.

Community Involvement

I have a firm belief and a mission of outreach to my community and my parish. I am or have been involved with the following organizations:

> Century 21 Scheetz Foundation

> Knights of Columbus, Council 3433

> St. Thomas Aquinas Men's Service Club

> St. Vincent dePaul Society

> Indiana Youth Rugby Association

> Indiana Rugby Referee Society

> Young Actors Theater

> Boulevard Place Food Pantry

> Coach, Royal Irish Rugby Society

" Terry sold our house in 13 days for near asking price in a bad market when homes were not selling, let alone getting asking price. He then virtually held our hand through the buying process while lenders were going belly up and financing was scarce. His expertise, not only on the market side, but on the financing side as well helped us effortlessly close on our home during a very volatile time." 

Andrea Gregory

"As our REALTOR, Terry was a tremendous partner. He helped us through the process of buying and selling our homes from start to finish. He provided us with advice that we trusted, responded promptly to our questions and completed the task with great results. I strongly recommend him as a Real Estate Agent" 

Angie Ziliak

" Terry Rankin is very well-versed in his field. He explains and develops the required transaction paperwork in a very timely and easy-to-understand manner. He knows the market well and I have a high level of confidence in his work and ethical approach to sometime challenging resl estate issues. Would hire for his services again ina  heart beat."
