Sales “Junkie:” Few sales leaders possess more extensive experience — and irresistible enthusiasm — than Erika Frantz. A voracious student of life and self-proclaimed sales “junkie,” Erika believes that sales is a noble profession and that salespeople who act in the best interest of their customers provide a valuable service to society.
After graduating from Butler University with a B.S. in Marketing, Erika began her homebuilding career in 2001 as a sales counselor in the Greater Indianapolis Area. Thriving in a tough market, Erika honed her craft during the real estate downturn and moved quickly through a series of progressive sales management and executive positions for National Top Ten & Fortune 500 Homebuilder, Beazer Homes. She served as Vice President of Sales for the Indianapolis Division and led her team to be the #1 Builder in the state of Indiana four years in a row and repeatedly was awarded with operating the #1 Sales Team in the Company based on Net Sales and Customer Experience.
All-Around Family Woman: When she’s not showing homes, on the phone, or placing sold signs on her listings, Erika resides in Carmel with her husband, Ryan and their daughters, Lexie and Vivie, who are their pride and joy. Ryan is Senior Vice President & Area Manager for the Indianapolis and Lafayette Divisions of Ruoff Home Mortgage. Erika and Ryan find deep happiness spending time with their family and friends, and enjoy community and church activities. They are members of Northview Church, involved with Safe Families for Children, and experience extreme gratitude through this program. Erika and Ryan love to golf and visit the beach.
Erika was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She has deep roots in Indiana and is proud to be a Hoosier. One set of Erika’s grandparents own a Farming Corporation in Jay County, so planting a seed and growing a crop is no secret to Erika. On the other side of the family, Erika’s Grandfather and Great-Grandfather are members of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame (Murray Mendenhall Sr. and Jr.). Erika knows that practice, competition, talent, and teamwork are vital to any successful business.
Erika looks forward to assisting you with all of your real estate needs.
