Meet the sales team

Our dedicated team of Sales Managers and New Home Consultants are here to make your dream home a reality.

  • Melanie New Home Consultant

    Melanie Ritz

    Melanie is 100% Ohioan, born and raised. She married her high school sweetheart. Lives in her hometown. Enjoys boating and riding horses. Loves watching her three adorable kids grow up. She describes herself as genuine, energetic, and honest. And most Ohioan of all, she roots for the Buckeyes. But we also think of Melanie as a native Wayne Homesian. Not that she’s worked for us since childhood, but she has been a wonderful New Home Consultant for years and has even built her own custom Wayne home. And after taking a leave for a few months, she says she realized more clearly than ever before that her true passion is homebuilding. Which just goes to prove that some folks are native because of where they’re born, while others are native because of what’s in their hearts.

  • Lauren Sales Manager

    Lauren Glinn

    This is one of those “if you love her, let her go” stories. Lauren had spent about four years with Wayne Homes as a New Home Consultant (a really good New Home Consultant) when she decided to leave us. Naturally, we were disappointed. But we gave her some hugs and sent her on her way with our best wishes … including the wish that she would come back to us one day. We’re happy to say that day arrived. Lauren rejoined the Wayne Homes team with a new title, Sales Manager, and a renewed love for the Wayne Homes approach. As she told us in a report, “I am so proud of the way we treat our customers. After having worked for another builder as well as living in a home built by yet another builder — no one treats their customers the way Wayne Homes does. I also truly believe that the quality of construction for the pricing we offer is unmatched.” Welcome home, Lauren. It’s good to have you back.

  • Jeremy New Home Consultant

    Jeremy Parish

    When Jeremy admitted that two of his favorite things in the world are home design and food, we knew he’d fit right in! Before Wayne Homes, he worked at Pottery Barn as their Design Studio Coordinator and at Pepperidge Farm. Jeremy doesn’t shy away from a challenge – no matter how big! He and his husband, Nick, have tackled the restoration of their century-old home and adopted an English Mastiff, Yogi (who is bigger than Jeremy!). Yogi is kept company by a Schnoodle, Princeton, and a Chihuahua mix, Sissy. Their home is often the setting for amazing meals prepared by Jeremy and entertaining family and friends. With such strong ties to his own home, it’s no wonder that Jeremy loves helping his customers picture their future dream home in their heads! “Everyone here is willing to go above and beyond to help our customers achieve their goals,” Jeremy said. “Each and every one of us really does care about helping them build what they choose.”
