Local Veteran Learns of Top Salesperson Honors on Veterans Day
This past Veterans Day, Dan Kauffman spent the afternoon at Arlington National Cemetery, taking part in a traditional Wetting Down Ceremony. Uniquely designed to honor fallen soldiers, the ritual reunited Dan with comrades he met during his deployment to Iraq eight years ago during Operation Enduring Freedom. Dan often says that his success as a new home sales manager for Schell Brothers stems from the dedication and expertise he gained from spending 13 years in the US Army Reserves. So, it was only fitting that, when Dan returned home after a customary Veterans Day commemoration, he learned that he was one of six sales professionals nationwide to be honored as a Silver Finalist for excellence in new home sales. Dan Kauffman is a new home sales manager for Schell Brothers at Breakwater in Lewes, Delaware.
Dan’s award was one of nine Silver Nationals received by the Schell Brothers and its family of companies, including Echelon Custom Homes and Echelon Interiors. Having received five Silver Nationals last year, Schell Brothers nearly doubled that number in 2010. Presented by the Sales and Marketing Council of the National Homebuilders Association, Silver Nationals are handed out to the top vote recipients in several categories. These recipients then become national finalists for the Gold Awards which will be announced and presented January 12, 2011 at the Builders Show in Orlando, Florida. In addition to the top sales award, Schell Brothers was honored for excellence in new home product design, interior merchandising, television advertising, print/Internet marketing campaigns, and website design. Rebecca Fluharty, a designer at Schell Brothers, received honors two years in a row for the Milton home at Heritage Creek. Last year’s honors were for the conceptual design, while this year’s award recognized the team’s ability to bring the concept to life. This unique Victorian home is now available to tour at the Heritage Creek community by Schell Brothers in Milton, Delaware.
Schell Brothers is located at 55 Cascade Lane, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Twin brothers Chris and Preston Schell have set the standard for home building excellence and responsible land use in Coastal Delaware.
