Rhonda Gustitus

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!

Tony Gustitus

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.

 

 

Yoan Rosell

Real Estate Buyer Specialist

My name is Yoan Rosell, one of the buyer’s specialists for the Rhonda Gustitus Team at Keller Williams Realty Peace River Partners. I have been part of this team for the past 4 years and I have enjoyed every second of it. I was born in Cuba, and moved to the United States 15 years ago with my family, with the hope of achieving the American dream. I fluently speak and write Spanish and English, which gives me the opportunity to help those clients who might face language barriers. One of the main reasons I decided to join the Real State business is because I enjoy helping others, especially those families who have a dream to buy their very own home; there is no greater feeling than helping others achieve their dreams. I am here for you, I want to help you own your dream home!

 

Chris Pizzolato

Real Estate Buyer Specialist

Hi I’m Chris, a Buyer’s Specialist on The Rhonda Gustitus Team! I want you to know I am 100% dedicated to my clients and I will work diligently to help you find your next home. A little about me… I was born in Gary, IN which is just outside of Chicago. My family moved to North Port, FL in 1988 when I was just 8 years old and I have lived here ever since. I went to school locally and then went on to graduate with two degrees in Business. On my first job I quickly learned that building relationships would be the key to my success. I was able to earn referrals no matter the business I was in because I became the person everyone knew, liked, and trusted. In the past I was an insurance agent and then I went to work for a global pest control company. I worked closely with realtors and after 6 years in the pest control industry I decided to go into real estate for myself. Some of my hobbies include reading, traveling to see new places, and personal fitness. Luckily for me I met a wonderful woman named Sarah while I was at the local gym. We have been together for many years and we have an amazing son Remy who was born 09/07/17. Have you ever wondered what drives someone? What motivates me to be the best I can be is Sarah and Remy. They are the reason I do what I do and push myself to be the best. When you choose me to become your Realtor I also become your friend. I am your local resource for all things Charlotte and Sarasota County. If you ever need anything please ask me first because I have a strong network of local professional vendors and more than likely know the best person for the job. I look forward to getting to know you and working toward helping you purchase your next home.

Ginger Blomberg

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.

 

 

Alisha Gustitus-Colligan

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!
