Employee Spotlight - Meet Tony Sardinas!
Building trust is every bit as important as building homes. At Ernest Signature Custom Homes, we specialize not only in creating unique homes that are perfect for your lifestyle, we build relationships that last. Our employees are the backbone of our relationship-building team. As the leading homebuilder in Savannah, GA, we know just how important it is to find just the right people to work side-by-side with our customers, constructing, designing and putting the finishing touches on their dream homes. It’s important to us that you get to know our team members, so we’re introducing one of our finest to you today! Tony Sardinas is one of our top Sales Agents, and he has been with us for almost four years. A graduate of The University of Connecticut, he majored in Political Science, but discovered a true love for real estate fifteen years ago. He’s licensed to sell homes in both Georgia and Florida. Originally from Connecticut, he spent 20 years in Florida before relocating to Richmond Hill four years ago to be closer to family. One of the bonuses of the move – our gorgeous weather. “After 20 years of heat in Orlando, this area has the best of four seasons,” Tony says. He and his wife, a nurse at St. Joseph’s/Candler, have two sons, one a sophomore at Richmond Hill High School, the other in seventh grade at Richmond Hill Middle School. We asked Tony what sets an Ernest Signature Custom Home apart from the competition, and he was quick to praise the quality of their construction. “I have sold other builder’s homes and Ernest by far builds the best quality homes in the Greater Savannah area.” He also enjoys working for a smaller, family-owned company, rather than a large corporation. “I want to continue helping people achieve the American dream of owning a home,” he continues. “That’s absolutely my favorite part of my job. It’s great that what I love the most about working here fits right into one of my career goals – I want to stay on the top of the list of the most successful real estate agents in the Greater Savannah area.” Customer service ranks first with him – which is probably why he’s one of the best sales agents in our region. “Listening to people’s concerns and making the home buying process easy is the key to great customer service,” he says. “I also make sure to remind them to look at the workmanship of the different builders and realize that ‘you get what you pay for’. When they do an objective comparison between our homes and the competition, they see that a lot of features that are upgrades with other builders are standard with our company.” When we asked Tony the million-dollar question – what is the most interesting thing you keep in your garage, he surprised us with the answer. “I have a book case that I made in wood shop over 30 years ago that still looks great and we use every day,” he replied. We had no idea that not only is he a customer service pro and a top salesman, he’s also pretty handy with saws and hammers. We should probably ask him what books he has in that case...there’s sure to be a great answer to that question too!
