Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties, LLC is pleased to congratulation Ron Kalpak as Salesperson of the Year with 59 transactions totaling over $32 million in total dollar volume.

Kalpak's unwavering dedication to selling Reynolds' homes and homesites, as well as resale listings for Reynolds property owner, has earned him this title for the third time in his career with Reynolds. He was also part of the sales team of the year in 2014.

"Helping people fulfill their real estate goals and dreams is what I enjoy," says Kalpak.

Kalpak began his real estate career at Reynolds Lake Oconee in 1992 and has experienced a lot during this time, however, nothing could have prepared him for the circumstances of 2020.

"Shut downs and social distancing surprised everyone and caused my real estate business to slow to a near stop," he says. "All I knew was that God was in control and I decided to take the unbelievable opportunity to spend some quality time with my wife and 2 daughters. I wouldn't trade those three months for anything."

Despite these challenges, Ron was named the Salesperson of the Month in March and then again in August as the real estate market here at Reynolds began to shift rapidly.

"It was like someone flipped a switch. People from all over the country began to realize that Reynolds checked all of their boxes at a time when peace and quality of life were at a premium," says Kalpak. "My phone became a virtual tour machine with some people purchasing through video without being able to visit. Finding new ways to maintain the highest level of service was a must."

Kalpak has become and expert at selling the Reynolds lifestyle while raising his family here at The Landing and can't imagine seeing themselves anywhere else.

In addition to fishing on Lake Oconee, Ron is an avid fisherman as well. He recently netted a 30-inch rainbow trout from his favorite North Georgia river, The Soque. "Being so close to trophy trout is just one more reason Reynolds is the perfect location."

"I am so thankful and honored to have achieved this recognition amongst the most professional group of real estate executives I've ever met," says Kalpak. "I look forward to another year of helping both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals."

"I am very pleased with Ron's performance this year. His hard work and passion for Reynolds is outstanding and he is so deserving of this award," says Lee Arberg, Senior Vice President of Sales for Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties, LLC. "2020 was a difficult year, but our entire sales team did a great job and we ended up having one of the most profitable years to date. I am excited to welcome even more people to the Reynolds family in 2021."
