Stroudsburg –

Matthew J. Rubin, Realtor, has joined Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates as a Salesperson in their 304 Park Avenue office.

In 2010, Rubin took the required courses and passed the State examination to receive his Real Estate license.  Prior to joining Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates, Rubin was employed at Keller Williams Real Estate. 

Originally from Brooklyn, Rubin and his wife have lived in the Poconos for the past 12 years.  Prior to real estate, Rubin spent 20+ years in the stage and theater district in New York City.  Rubin worked on a number of productions, Broadway shows and television series before retiring and becoming a full-time Realtor.

Rubin’s motto is to “always give back to the community where you live”; and to that end, he has been a part of “Help Family Promise”, he volunteered for “Run for the Red”, was a participant in Stroudsburg’s “Clean the Town” and every Friday, donates his time to Pocono Medical Center. 

Rubin has a unique perspective in that every sale he makes he gives a small portion of his commission to the charity of the buyer’s or renters’ choice.

Rubin will be located in the Stroudsburg office and will mentor with Christine A. Scrofano, Senior Vice Pres. who recruited Rubin.  Rubin plans to take part in the new program by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate corporate which hosts a “Welcome to the Greenhouse” series of classes online, Pod-casts and seminars to understand more about the marketing materials offered by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate®. Rubin also is a candidate for “FAST TRACK” a newly set of classes designed by Wilkins that was designed for those agents that are hired that already have experience and a book of business.
