Ron Mercante REALTOR®, SRES
Ron successfully completed real estate pre-licensing classes and received his real estate license in September of 2017 and immediately joined the team at Active Adults Realty. Ron is a Native Delawarean, born and raised in Wilmington, DE. Ron and his wife Lauren now live in Wilmington with their two children, Riley Ann, 8, and Ronnie, 3.
Ron graduated from Salesianum School, one of the most respected high schools in all of Delaware, in 1996. Throughout his childhood until graduation from high school, Ron worked in his father’s restaurant business, a Wilmington favorite, the “Del Rose Café”, learning the basics of customer service and hospitality. He was mostly involved in the catering side of the business since minors are prohibited from working in a Café.
Ron worked other jobs throughout high school gaining sales experience until he landed the ultimate sales job working for MBNA Bank as a Sales Representative for their affinity marketing credit card division. MBNA at the time was the largest credit card distributor in the world and one of the largest employers in Wilmington, Delaware.
Ron attended the University of Delaware after high school and then worked in consumer sales for more than 20 plus years of experience in sales management, finance, and insurance.
Although Ron is new to the real estate industry, he brings to us an extensive background in sales and working with the public where excellent customer service was required. He looks forward to representing clients of Active Adults Realty as they make one of the biggest decisions and purchases of their lives.
