2008 wasn’t the best time to open a new office, but the Charles Reinhart Company looked to expansion as the way to ensure the future.
Reinhart South, now located on the corner of State Street and Eisenhower Boulevard in Ann Arbor, opened January 7, 2008 in a small office on Washtenaw Avenue. Facing the bleakest economic situation since the great depression, Manager Dawn Foerg began the process of recruiting top real estate talent to the company. One agent at a time, South grew. By early 2009, 15 agents called the South office home. Still fighting the economic crises, the office grew to more than 40 licensed Realtors by the end of 2010. Today, South is among the five top producing offices in Ann Arbor.
Culture at Reinhart South
Dedicated and driven to succeed, Reinhart agents enjoy an excellent reputation both within the industry and within the community. In addition to their strong productivity, Reinhart South agents contribute to our communities by their involvement in charitable and civic organizations. From the Feet and Friends Colon Cancer Run/Walk to the Downs Syndrome Buddy Walk to the Walk for the Cure, South agents put in miles every year. We are represented on the Boards of Camp Placement of Washtenaw Counties, Ele’s Place, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, the University Musical Society, the Legacy Land Conservancy and the Arts Alliance. We are active in Kiwanis and Rotary. We serve on the Ann Arbor City Planning and Human Rights Commissions and Ann Arbor Tax Review Board. We volunteer at the VA Hospital, Hospice, the Thrift Shop, and the Huron High Booster Club.
Because we know that the real estate business can be stressful, we created a place for “fun” in the office. Every October we hold our annual Halloween Pet Parade and Costume Contest. Dressed up and ready to play, we walk the dogs and award a prize for the best costume. Every dog gets a treat bag, and we laugh at them and ourselves.
We organized an annual South Office Craft Show to support our charitable donations fund — the Patricia Williams Memorial Fund — named after one of our favorite agents who passed away recently.
The People at Reinhart
Our support staff is selected to the same rigorous standards as agents and managers. Working as partners with the agents, the relocation, closing and marketing departments provide the highest quality referrals, closing documents and advertising materials in the industry.
Leading the company toward the future, our administrators are on the cutting edge of new technologies, changes in business models and new opportunities. Reinhart succeeds because of our people. Our people succeed because of Reinhart.
