Buying a home is a big event for most people, and one that doesn’t pass quickly or quietly. There is so much more than the HGTV shows portray when it comes to finally settling down in your own piece of property and it is best to prepare for the rollercoaster of emotions that come with it.

Family ativities in Ithaca

Ithaca is such a family friendly town. It is a big reason why I felt so confident in raising my family here. I'll be updating with family activities soon.

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


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

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

I started Welcome Home Ithaca to showcase all things Ithaca and all things home. I love my area, this industry, the people I meet, and the outcomes I bring. Call, text, or email for residential or commercial buying, selling, and investing. I look 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. "

" We could not ask for more in an Agent. Rio's work was completely seamless, she was great to work with and advised us accurately and we are now settled in our beautiful new home. We would recommend Rio to anyone and everyone looking to make a home purchase. "

" You'll have your own opinion of realtors after your first experience with property, but if you are first time buyers or new to the Ithaca/Finger Lakes area, I can recommend young Rio Lange. She knows her market: new construction, old neighborhoods, and farm properties, and will find you a home  and shepherd you through finalization details. She's knowledgeable, tireless, detail oriented, and extremely pleasant to work with. Her firm Keller Williams is nationwide and holds a reputation for superior service. "

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!
