Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from Ohio State in 2002 and proudly worked for one of the premier semi-custom builders in town. I had the privilege of supervising the construction of millions of dollars of inventory in the form of dozens of residential homes and condos in the greater Columbus area for which the average sale price was $461,364. I had the highest customer satisfaction rate in 9 years. When the residential market first started to show signs of weakness in 2006, I decided to switch it up and am one of the few managers to switch from residential to commercial construction. I worked as a project manager for several years at a mid size contracting firm supervising large warehouse construction as well as office and retail renovations. I did not feel travel was ideal for my family so I quickly came to the realization my passion would be better served and utilized into real estate consulting, however, the knowledge and experience gained in those fields has been a key component to achieving results in real estate.  

I joined the Lubinsky team in 2009 to learn everything I could from a recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award winner. This allowed me to hit the ground running, and since then, I have consistently sold millions of inventory a year.  I have routinely performed over 6 times better than average agent, and helped the Lubinsky team earn further honors such being one of the top 25 teams for all of RE/MAX Central and Northern Ohio for 2012.  I left the Lubinsky team in the Spring of 2013 and business has been doing well. I am now growing my own team and have recently brought on an assistant who was a practicing attorney.

I strive to be the best stemming from the obvious viewpoint of my clients and their expectations of an agent. My goal is simply to provide most knowledgeable and comprehensive service possible to all clients.  

Specialties

Negotiation, single family homes, condominiums, bank owned, and bargain homes/investment properties with a territorial specialty encompassing all of central Ohio although my preference is toward the north side market from Hilliard to Gahanna.

12/16/2014 - kmk4206
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $75K in Columbus, OH.

Carlton is a very professional realtor. I had other realtors before him and when I met Carlton, I knew that he was the kind of realtor I needed. You could tell right off the bat that he truly loves what he does. He showed me numerous homes before I found the perfect one in 2011. My home was not that quick and simple to purchase, there was very extensive details and requirements that had to be met. I was a first time home buyer & I had no idea what i was doing or what meant what, but he helped me with every question that I had and was with me EVERY step of the way thru the whole process. He is very patient, kind, knowledgeable,always on time, very quick and responsive with emails & phone calls. Some realtors seem pushy and just trying to make a sale, but that is not the case here with Carlton. He truly cares about his clients and goes well above and beyond to meet all your needs. Anytime I had a question he was always there to answer it and was always very honest about it. You will never meet another realtor like him. I would definitely recommend him for all your realtor needs. I have referred him to several friends(who has also purchased homes from him) and would definetly use him again to sell my current home & purchase my next.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Trabue Woods, Columbus, OH.

It was my second home purchase, and I was purchasing at a price point about $100,000 less than my first home due to a divorce. Carlton was patient with me being picky and helped me look for homes that would give me space for my kids close to their schools. He always got back to me timely and let me know when the other side was being unreasonable. Carlton was able to negotiate a price for my home purchase that was significantly less than the listing price. I would recommend him, and I would use him again.  More Less

Sold a home in 2014.

I couldnt thank Carlton enough for the help he provided with the entire sale process of my property. I used Carlton in the past and wouldn't have gone with anyone else for my recent sale.

He is very knowledgable in the real estate business and works with you from the start all the way to see the ink dry during closing. He never once provided false hopes and was always straight forward and honest in a very competitive and stressful real estate market. I am currently using Carlton for the search of my next new home.  More Less
