Founder, Real Estate Specialist
Hello, I’m Rhonda Gustitus, formerly of Milford CT. I have a terrific story to tell of how I settled here in sunny South West Florida with my wonderful family and started my 20 year career of being a Realtor! My husband Tony and I decided to get away from the cold weather and take a vacation to Florida. We took along my fun loving mother Rose Marie, and my Grandmother Elvira. When we arrived in Florida we rented a minivan and traveled down the East Coast and up the West coast, visiting all the tourist attractions and breath taking beaches. We absolutely fell in love with the West coast of Florida as it reminded me of home. Very family oriented! We knew then we wanted to move to Florida! We began researching jobs, schools & general statistics of the area and really were impressed at what we found. Schools in Sarasota & Charlotte Counties were among the best in the state. Honestly, this was one of our main concerns being blessed with 3 incredible children, we wanted to make sure they received the best education possible. I quickly began my career as a Realtor and absolutely fell in love with the idea of helping my customers buy & sell real estate. It appeared to me that it wasn’t just a job, it became my passion to listen to my customers’ needs and to provide them with all the information they needed to make them feel comfortable and confident in their real estate decisions! When my customers are happy, I’m happy! Presently 80% of my business is from receiving referrals from my amazing customers of whom I have already had the great experience of working with. Today my team of 10 consists of my husband Tony & I, our four Buyer Specialists Ginger, Yoan, Yoel, Miki, & Andrew, our Transaction Coordinator Jodie, Listing Coordinator Kamlin and our office Manager Alisha. We are the “Rhonda Gustitus Team”. I am proud to say, I have the best Real Estate Team in South West Florida! Feel free to call me anytime if you would like to know more about this incredible area we live in. My team specializes in the areas of North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Venice, Nokomis, Englewood & Rotonda. All are just a short drive from one another and if you ask me, the “best place to live” in South west Florida! I look forward to meeting you!
Commercial & Residential Real Estate Specialist
Hi I’m Tony Gustitus, I am originally from Bridgeport Connecticut. After graduating college, I moved to Milford Connecticut. I owned two businesses in Milford and worked for the largest wine & beverage distributor in the state. I moved to Florida 22 years ago with my lovely wife Rhonda and our three children. I immediately joined John Hancock as a financial & estate planner for a few years. I then decided to join my wife and become a licensed realtor. Shortly after, I received my real estate brokers designation. Working every day in this rewarding industry, helping individuals and family find their dream home, business, or satisfy their investment needs is what I live for! I am looking forward to helping you and your family with all of your real estate needs.

Real Estate Buyer Specialist
I was born and raised in Tomball, Texas. I studied computer sciences at UT at Austin. Throughout my professional career, I was an assistant store manager at a popular food chain. When I relocated to Bradenton, Florida, I worked with a large bank and eventually became a lead teller. In every career the most important aspect was to ensure top notch customer service and that is a skill I carry over into everything I do. After being involved in various real estate transactions, I came to the realization that I could provide an experience to buyers second to none. I soon joined the Rhonda Gustitus Team where I’ve been given the opportunity to do just that. As a buyer’s specialist I focus all my efforts on providing not only great customer service but knowledge stemming from a team base of over 100yrs experience. I am familiar with the needs of the buyer and help to anticipate anything you might come across in your real estate transaction. I look forward to the opportunity to help you and your family find the perfect home.
Real Estate Buyer Specialist
Hello, I’m Ginger a buyer’s specialist from the Rhonda Gustitus Team. I have been a licensed Realtor for 32 years with the first 25 being in the state of CT. As a broker, I owned and managed 3 RE/MAX offices for a period of 10 years and then sold them in order to purchase a Keller Williams franchise which I grew to employ 100 agents. My educational background includes a BS in education which I put to use in a real estate school, The State Academy of Real Estate, that I founded and managed for 5 years before relocating to Florida. In Florida, I obtained my broker’s license to allow for the greatest number of options with regard to my affiliation with an agency, but ultimately I decided to become associated with the Rhonda Gustitus Team at Keller Williams Realty. The combination of a great Realty company with a professional team like the Rhonda Gustitus Team made the decision an easy one. I am now a buyer’s agent for the team, one of 4, and I help to train and motivate the other buyer’s agents. Having been exposed to many real estate teams over the years, I can say with certainty that the Rhonda Gustitus Team is among the most professional I have come to know. I consider it a privilege to be part of it.
Real Estate Specialist/Office Manager
Hi, I’m Alisha Gustitus, a Realtor and Office Manager on the Rhonda Gustitus Team. I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing from The University of Central Florida. I lived in Miami for three years where I attended Florida International University before transferring up to Orlando to finish my degree at the University Of Central Florida. My last semester of college I was offered a position in a Marketing & Advertising company and soon worked my way up to Office Manager & Production Coordinator. I worked with that company for over 6 years learning the ins and outs of print and online advertising as well as what it takes to manage a company. I was ready for a change and after talking extensively with my parents about their team and all the success they have had helping people in the real estate industry I decided it was time to make another move. I soon joined their team as an office administrator, learning their systems and keys to success while taking the necessary real estate courses to get my own license. Now I am able to apply all of my knowledge and experience to continue to help improve our systems and make our team grow. We are now ten members strong, have an amazing marketing plan, and most importantly helping people achieve all of their real estate goals. Please call me so I can help make your real estate dreams come true! My cell phone number is 941-525-6550!

Hi! I’m Joyce Berry, the Office Coordinator with the Rhonda Gustitus Team at Keller Williams Peace River Partners. My story began in Brooklyn, New York and boy can I tell you a story or two!

However, I have lived in Central Florida and now on the Southwest coast of Florida for a total of forty years with Florida living. Oh yeah, I also lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for five years. So, yes! I am a Steeler’s fan! I put myself through college later in life while also caring for my two children and my husband Ron. My degree is in Business Administration.
