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 25 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 people buy & sell real estate. It occurred 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 pleasure of working with. 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 Sarasota & Charlotte County. 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 over 20 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 families 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.
Team Manager/Real Estate Specialist
Hi, I’m Alisha Colligan, a Realtor and Team Manager on the Rhonda Gustitus Team. What drew me to the real estate industry is the fact we get to change lives everyday by helping families with their real estate dreams. Everyone is different and has their own story and their own needs, I love that our team gets to learn these stories and help them get to their next chapter in life.
A little about me… 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 help our team grow. We are always looking for top talent, have an amazing marketing plan, and most importantly helping people achieve all of their real estate goals. Please call us so we can help make your real estate dreams come true!

Hello, my name is Connie Bennett, a Buyer’s Specialist for the Rhonda Gustitus Team at Keller Williams Realty. A little about me, I grew up in Bradenton, FL and they are still some of my best memories. I got married and moved to West Virginia, where my husband and I were successful real estate investors for 28 years. (It’s never too early or too late to start investing) Moving back to Florida, I wanted to help others, and with my personal Real Estate knowledge putting that to good use was a natural choice. Having bought and sold homes and businesses, I wanted to help others find their dream homes and educate them on investing in real estate.
Joining the Rhonda Gustitus Team was my best decision. We have over 25 years in real estate experience, always putting our customer’s needs first and pride ourselves on 5-star service to every customer. Seeing how hard we work to go above and beyond for our customers because we genuinely care about people and our community, has been an excellent fit for me. I am proud to say I am part of a top producing team that truly cares.
