Challenge: Arthur Rutenberg Homes has a rich legacy. Founded in Florida in the 1950s, the company has grown in scale and prestige. Originally a small home builder, Arthur Rutenberg himself is credited with positioning the kitchen in the heart of the home, introducing the split-bedroom floor plan, focusing on great views throughout the home, widening hallways and doors, and much more. Today they assist builders to create their own building franchises, with the slogan “We help the customer get in business for themselves, but not by themselves.”
Strategy & Solution: After a thorough evaluation of the north side office market, CARMEN Commercial Real Estate Services identified office solutions that best met AR Homes requirements and requested proposals from those building owners that were specific to meeting their client’s needs. Chris Carmen successfully leveraged his long-standing relationships within the Indianapolis real estate community, as well as his 30+ years of experience, and negotiated lease terms that not only met but exceeded its client’s expectations.
Additionally, the CARMEN team assisted AR Homes with the search and procurement of cost-effective office furnishings to further reduce the firm’s setup costs.
