From the moment we first meet to the moment we hand over your keys, our team works hard to ensure that your home building journey is as enjoyable as can be. At Schaeffer Family Homes, we’ve done away with the idea that buying a new home means months of stress; instead, we’ve turned the process into something fun.
We believe that the beginning sets the tone for the rest of the way — which is why we’re so happy to have Ashley Fortunato as one of the first people you’ll interact with! As one of our sales specialists, Ashley’s positivity shines through in everything she does, and we can’t wait for you to experience her incredible energy.
Anyone who’s ever met Ashley can instantly sense her kind, caring heart, so it comes as no surprise that prior to joining the Schaeffer family, Ashley worked as a medical assistant as well as a coordinator for a non-profit that helps illness/injury patients coordinate fundraisers. With a lifelong passion for helping others, there’s no one who embodies our mission better than Ashley.
When it comes to her role, Ashley says that she’s most grateful for the supportive work environment that inspires her every day. “Everyone that works for Schaeffer really loves their job, and therefore, goes above and beyond for customers,” Ashley says. “It’s exciting to be part of a family-owned business where you’re able to get to know your customers and help them build their dream homes!”
Before coming into work every morning, Ashley particularly looks forward to learning something new. Whether it be something about the homebuilding process or products on the market (or advice from a colleague!), Ashley is always open to new knowledge and experiences so she can continue to provide the best service possible.
Outside of the office, Ashley is most likely hanging out with her friends and family, and exploring the diverse food scene in Philadelphia. She also loves to spend quality time with her two beautiful rescue dogs, and fosters dogs whenever she can (see, we told you she has a huge heart!)
All of us at Schaeffer Family Homes want to thank Ashley for everything she does for our team and our homeowners! For more information on our homes and communities throughout South Jersey, please give us a call at 856-208-5118. We love working with Ashley, and we know you will too!
At Schaeffer Family Homes, our friendly and knowledgeable team wants nothing more than to make your days extraordinary. We understand the true meaning of home and family inside and out, and make sure that your journey to move-in day is just as sweet as life in your new home will be.
This week, we’re happy to introduce you to an employee who brings positivity to our office and homeowners everyday. Krista Cipollone, our incredible new home sales specialist, is one of the reasons why your homebuilding process is easy, informative, and fun from start to finish.
After graduating from the University of Scranton in 2015 with degrees in broadcast communication and Spanish, Krista started her career in television production in Philadelphia. While she loved working as an associate producer, she was ready for something more challenging… And luckily so, because that’s how she found her Schaeffer family.
In April 2018, Krista joined our team as a new home sales specialist, truly coming full circle — her mom had always worked in real estate and property management, and Krista always had an interest herself. When it comes to her role, Krista’s most excited about our brand new Carriage Mews community in Berlin Borough, (where she lives in her own Schaeffer home!) and absolutely loves hearing the enthusiasm and excitement in a customer’s voice when they’re talking about the “must-haves” in their dream home.
“It’s special to be part of the process of building a new home,” Krista says. “Buying a home is a big decision, and designing your own home makes it personal! I love taking a role in the process of helping people find their dream home.” We may be biased, but you can trust us when we say that when you’re going through this exciting (and emotional) adventure, there’s no one warmer, more kind, and more insightful than Krista to have on your side.
It’s no surprise that Krista’s just as adventurous and fun-loving outside of Schaeffer… When she’s not in the office helping homeowners, you can find Krista staying active while snowboarding, playing tennis, paddle boarding, bowling, playing ping pong, and traveling, as well as cheering on the Broad Street Bullies as a Philadelphia Flyers Ice Girl.
Krista also loves animals, and volunteers with a West Berlin rescue called Balanced Buddies Res-Q. She says that her dog, Sully, is her absolute pride and joy, and loves extending her affinity for furry friends outside of her home. Just as thoughtful as she is hard-working, Krista’s an incredible addition to our team. We’re so lucky to have you, Krista! Thank you for all that you do for Schaeffer and our homeowners.
For more information on our homes and communities throughout South Jersey, please visit our website or give us a call at 856-208-5118. Krista can’t wait to work with you to help bring your dream home to life!
Josh Adams is our new Land Specialist. He handles land acquisitions and assists our customers with finding just the right lot. “I love the chase involved in finding land,” says Josh. “I enjoy working with people and building relationships, and finding creative ways to find lots and sell properties.”
As a newer member of the team, he has a unique perspective on working here. “It’s a great environment, and I’m fortunate to be a part of it! I’m looking forward to helping people find a place to spend their lives. I’m also excited about the fact that there’s a picture of Vanilla Ice that randomly appears somewhere in the office!”
Prior to joining Schaeffer Family Homes, Josh most recently worked as a sales associate for Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach, Realtors® selling resale residential homes, new construction, and land. Prior to joining BHHS, he worked for Atlantic Five Realty where he specialized in selling residential subdivisions to builders. He attended Moorestown Friends, and Rutgers Business – Camden.
Josh loves cooking and anything related to food. In fact, “there’s a good chance that food is going to come up in any conversation!” He also thinks that “golf is the greatest game ever made.” He loves Philly sports (Go Birds!), and competing in just about anything.
Fun Facts: He has made wine his entire life. And has done belly flops in the Mediterranean Sea.
When you’re ready to work with an expert like Josh, contact Schaeffer Family Homes at (856) 208-5118. We can’t wait to get started building the home of your dreams.
