NASHVILLE, TENN. Dec. 3, 2013 – Brothers Steve and J.R. Ernst, owners of the home building firm The Ernst Group, LLC of Hendersonville, Tenn., have become the first Tennessee builders chosen to partner with Arthur Rutenberg Homes, a nationwide custom home building franchise firm. The Ernst’s have years of building experience, managing their own home building firm since 1994, and will now do business as Arthur Rutenberg Homes.
“We consider it an honor to be chosen as a custom home builder under the Arthur Rutenberg franchise umbrella,” said Steve Ernst. “Partnering with Arthur Rutenberg Homes gives us the experience of a nationally-known 60-year-old home building expert with a portfolio of more than 80 award-winning exclusive home designs, yet allows us to offer that home-town personalized service to our local Nashville community.”
Steve and J.R. have successfully built custom homes throughout Nashville and the greater middle Tennessee area. They will operate their franchise in Hendersonville, Tenn., with a focus on building distinctive homes in the greater Nashville area. The benefits of working with a national franchise include better value through volume pricing on building materials and supplies, access to the latest home designs, and a business model that creates a better building experience for clients.
“We’ve identified a location for our first model home in Fairview Plantation and the construction has already started,” said Steve. “We’re excited to be on board with the Arthur Rutenberg Home brand while expanding our impact in the Nashville area’s growing home building market.”
Steve, who will operate the franchise as its president, is a graduate of Auburn University, Auburn, Ala., and received an MBA in marketing from Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tenn. J.R. is also a graduate of Auburn University and will be actively involved in the franchise. Together Steve and J.R. bring a wealth of energy, experience and knowledge to their new franchise.
