Meet the sales team

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

  • Sara Sales Manager

    Sara Judge

    Sara’s dad initiated her passion for design and construction, so when she started her career with Wayne Homes as a Design Consultant, we knew she would be a perfect fit. Now, as a Sales Manager, Sara is continuing her passion by helping customers create and build their dream homes with our Portage team. When Sara isn’t helping our customers build their dream home, she is spending time with her husband, their two children, and boxer, Murphy, in her own Wayne home. Together, her family enjoys being outdoors and boating. Her family is very active and, as most moms would say, her children keep her on her toes!

  • Lauren New Home Consultant

    Lauren Reihl

    Prior to working at Wayne Homes, Lauren was a bridal consultant. Now, instead of focusing on the “big day,” she will be focusing on the “happily ever after” with her soon to be homeowners. “Everyone has an idea of their own dream home,” Lauren said. “I am very excited to help my clients customize their home and turn their dreams into a reality.” Lauren grew up close by at Berlin Lake and graduated from the University of Mount Union in 2016. In her free time, Lauren enjoys staying active outdoors, including wakeboarding, surfing, flyboarding, and any other extreme watersports, and is an avid runner. If she has to be inside, she enjoys cooking magnificent meals and entertaining.

  • Lauren New Home Consultant

    Lauren Wisnor

    “Home is such a loaded word that means so much to so many people,” Lauren said. “Home is where family gathers and memories are made.” And home is exactly what Lauren will create for you as your New Home Consultant. Lauren came to Wayne Homes after graduating from Walsh University in 2017 where she majored in Corporate Communications and played soccer. When Lauren isn’t at the office, she enjoys spending time in her hometown, Elyria, Ohio, with her parents and two sisters. She also enjoys fishing with her boyfriend and working out. She doesn’t have a family of her own yet, but when she does her goal is to build a Meridian Legacy with plenty of open space for entertaining.
