The Directors of Barrister understand what it takes to finance and manage rooming houses. We have over 90+ years of collective experience in forming, operating, financing, leasing, and purchasing fraternity housing.
Most of us started out “learning by doing”. We recognize that this is not the most efficient means to house our Chapters or facilitate our volunteer alumni. We are acutely aware of the level of effort it takes to establish a volunteer housing corporation, let alone operate a volunteer housing corporation. Frequently, a local housing corporation cannot take advantage of efficiencies of scale, shared processes, or the financials to withstand a downtown in tenancy. That’s where Barrister comes in.
We established Barrister to invest in housing for our undergraduate members, leverage technologies and tools to engage and manage properties, while still focused on delivering a quality housing experience. We want to retain, enhance, and improve the housing available to our undergraduate members–helping to contribute to a memorable undergraduate fraternal experience.
We’re passionate about sharing our lessons and experiences to serve our members and clients.

As a Director, Rusty evaluates the housing needs for Delta Chi’s chapters and works to acquire competitive housing on each campus.

As an undergraduate member, he served his chapter as “B”, “D”, Associate Member Counselor and Convention Intern.
