Arthur Rutenberg Homes announced on Monday that Barry Rutenberg and Associates, its Gainesville franchise, is its eighth-best selling franchise for the fiscal year 2018-2019.
This is also Barry Rutenberg and Associates eighth year being in the company’s prestigious Top Club, which rewards its top 20 percent of sales consultants, by sales volume, with an exotic vacation.
Brenda Banks, vice president of sales and marketing for Barry Rutenberg and Associates, will join 10 other sales consultants from Florida, the Carolinas, Indiana and Tennessee on a trip to Montreal, Canada later this year.
Barry Rutenberg and Associates president and builder Dale Kinsell said Banks is well deserving of the honor.
“Brenda is passionate about what she does,” said Kinsell. “She is a driving force not only in Gainesville but throughout the entire company. We purchased the Ocala Arthur Rutenberg franchise in 2012, and with Brenda’s guidance we’ve just had our best sales year there also.”
Banks, a Gainesville native, began her real estate career in 1992 and joined Barry Rutenberg and Associates in 1997 to learn more about homes and construction. She became part of Arthur Rutenberg Homes when Barry Rutenberg joined his father Arthur as a franchisee in 2007.
Since 2012, Banks has sold a total volume of $136 million and annually ranked within the top 10 REALTORS in the Gainesville-Alachua County Association of Realtors. She is also part of the Thomas Group Realty, LLC team.
Today there are 42 Arthur Rutenberg Homes franchises in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Indiana, and Ohio. The company is known for its vast network of model home centers and portfolio of nearly 80 home designs ranging in size from 1,800 sq. ft. to over 7,000 sq. ft.
