Board, Immediate Past Chair

Rick Kane

Raised as an "Army brat", Rick settled in Waynesboro over 35 years ago. Rick graduated with distinction with a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Tech in 1977. In 1981 he entered the real estate industry and was awarded the local Rookie REALTOR of the Year award and in 1982, 1983 and 1984 the REALTOR of the Year award.

In 1985, he was recognized on the Virginia Association of REALTORS Honor Board as President of the local association. The next years he received the 1986 Salesman of the Year and has served twice as the local president. Rick is a 1985 Graduate of the REALTORS Institute (GRI) and also was awarded the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation in 1985. This designation represents that he has had additional education and experience which places him in the top 3% of all U.S. Realtors. Additionally, he has been awarded the Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) Designation and the Accredited-REO agent accreditation dealing with the foreclosure market.

In 1990, after seeing the movie, "Field of Dreams", Rick realized that although very successful in real estate, he still had a passion for residential architecture. His 20-year association with Westhills Company, the area's premier builder and Westhills Ltd. REALTORS, allowed him to practice both.

His background in architecture (CGP-Certified Green Professional) is a real asset in his real estate career. Extensive knowledge of construction and design afford him opportunities to offer constructive criticism of homes being considered by his clients. Rick has made Waynesboro his permanent home. He believes that serving his community is a privilege and a duty. He was a Trustee of his church for 24 years, a two-time President of the Kiwanis Club, Kiwanian of the Year 2013 & 2014, a former firefighter, soccer and baseball coach, two-time President of the Waynesboro Association of REALTORS and a three-time president of the Augusta Home Builders.

In November of 2010, he became the owner of Westhills Ltd., REALTORS
