Get to know


Rio Lange graduated from Cornell’s Business School with a focus in Marketing and Design and chose Ithaca as the perfect place to raise her family and start a career.


During her time at Cornell, she studied hospitality management, marketing, architecture and design, property management, event planning, finance, and entrepreneurial business planning. Rio considered many different career paths in these fields until she found that running a real estate business would utilize every single one.   

After Rio's own home-search and real estate agent interactions, she was determined to set a higher standard of service than she was coming across time and again. Rio joined Keller Williams and started her own business as a REALTOR. She focused on exceeding client expectations and redefining home-marketing, quickly realizing this business is a true passion of hers. 

Rio started Welcome Home Ithaca to showcase all things Ithaca and all things home. She loves her area, this industry, the people she meets, and the outcomes she brings. Call, text, or email for residential or commercial buying, selling, and investing. She looks forward to earning your business and referrals.  


" Rio went above and beyond the call of duty, showing us so many houses in a short amount of time. We moved from out of state and Rio's knowledge of the neighborhoods, her connections with contractors, and her understanding of the Ithaca market made it easy for us to find the perfect home! You can  count on Rio to be responsive and she is easy to work with -- we highly recommend her. "

"Rio helped us purchase a home, sell a rental property, and then eventually sell our main home when we had to move unexpectedly out of state. She has been so wonderful to work with in every situation. She is professional, quick to respond, and so helpful. She is patient and happy to explain all the ins and outs of different scenarios without being pushy one way or another. She took the most beautiful pictures of both properties we sold! She clearly has an artistic eye when it comes to photographing a house and really bringing out it's full potential. She also went above and beyond for us in the last sale, staging the house for us at no increased cost, and even removed some of the things we accidentally left behind in the basement for us. She seems to be very willing to do the extra work to make sale go as smooth as possible. I would strongly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. We are so thankful that she was recommended to us!"

"Rio is by far the best agent I have ever worked with in purchasing/selling a house. She is incredibly knowledgeable and quick to action. There was not a single answer she wouldn’t track down or problem she couldn’t solve. You will not find a better agent. Do yourself a favor and hire her!"


Danielle and Gabe

Rio has been absolutely fabulous during our home buying journey! Being brand new to the area we were originally set up with a realtor through USAA as part of a promotional program and were highly disappointed, we were having to pull teeth to even get answers about homes. From the minute I  contacted Rio about using her services, she did not stop going at bat for us. Any request or question I had she had an answer within a few minutes. There was a home not even on the market yet that she got us first showing for since she knew how much I loved it! We will be closing on that home tomorrow because of her persistence of getting us in there. She gave amazing recommendations of a lender to work with as well! Definitely cannot go wrong with using Rio! If you want somebody who is accessible and will get things done quickly for you, shes your gal!
