GREENSBORO, Ga. — After discovering Reynolds Lake Oconee during a watersports weekend, Kalpak became head tennis professional.
Two short years later, Kalpak joined the sales team in 1992.
“Helping people fulfill their real estate goals and dreams is what I enjoy,” said Kalpak. “I do feel that nearly 30 years at the same property, as well as living within the community with my family, is invaluable experience that you just can’t teach. I love what I do, and I think it shows.”
Tennis is a huge passion for him. He is a proud founder of the Lake Oconee Academy Tennis Club, and is an active participant in the tennis program and tournaments at Reynolds.
“If it weren’t for tennis, I probably would never have gotten into real estate! After giving a tennis lesson to a sales agent, I was offered a job as his assistant. The rest is history as they say…”
Kalpak also enjoys fishing in his free time. His extensive knowledge of the local waters has led to multiple Reynolds Bass Tournament victories, including the record for the largest one-day catch in tournament history — 20.5 pounds. He may even tell you where to find the best honey holes on Lake Oconee, so you can catch some bass yourself. Quite possibly his favorite spot on the lake is where he proposed to Heidi, the catch of his life! He calls is “proposal point.”
Kalpak has become an expert at selling the Reynolds lifestyle while raising his family here at The Landing and can’t imagine seeing themselves anywhere else. For Kalpak, a self-proclaimed “big foodie,” few afternoons are better spent cooking on one of his four grills or smokers. Ribs, chicken, salmon, steak — if it can be put on a grill or smoker, Ron can cook it. Flanked by his wife and daughters, Niah and Love, there is no place he would rather be.
“With hundreds of acres and miles of shoreline left to develop, I am excited to see the vision unfold. I’m even more excited to play a role in sharing it,” said Kalpak. “I look forward to another year of helping both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals.”
“Ron had a great performance this month,” says Lee Arberg, senior vice president of sales for Reynolds Lake Oconee Properties, LLC. “He is a valuable member of our team, and I look forward to his continuing success in this community.”
