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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Dublin, OH.

I am a first time home buyer and did not knew much so one of my friend had suggested Carlton..After I met Carl couple of times and him explaining me the whole process I was convinced that he would help me find our dream house

We had started looking for our house in May 2014 and might had looked at close to 70 houses both online and scheduling..The whole process was very painfull as we had a tight budget and we're looking for houses built after 1995 within Dublin school dist,at one point I lost intrest but Carl gave us hope when we needed it most..He tried to fit our budget and all our priorities and send at least 2-3 listings everyday..Carl was a thorough professional and never tried to push any property on us..He was very patient in showing and scheduling the properties even during off hours..finally we found our dream house and closed in Oct 2014..I waited for 2 months to write this review as I wanted to give my true feedback after staying in our house..Its been exactly 2 months and I can say we are very happy with our house and have made right decision to choose Carl as our realtor...  More Less

Bought a home in 2014.

I am not really someone who writes reviews because of the time and effort involved but I absolutely need to write this one to let others know about what an exceptional experience we had with Carlton Shaffer.

There are no words that could possibly express our gratitude and satisfaction after having the enormous pleasure of working with him to find and purchase our first home.

Not only is he an extremely knowledgeable agent who knows a lot of people in the field, is well-liked by them and gets things done in record times, but he is also a very caring, human and genuine family man.

He helped us find the perfect home, and then walked us through the extremely confusing process with incredible ease; He coordinated with all the parties (appraisers, lenders, plumber, electrician, etc) and made it all happen for us even though many said this probably wasn't going to be the home for us because when we came to him we weren't even pre-approved and only had 48hrs to place a bid but, somehow, this wizard of the real estate field made it all happen for us; all of it with the best attitude and optimism. One other thing that we really loved about him was how approachable he was... any question we had, any concern, anything we threw his away he handled not just with professionalism but with the most candid and helpful demeanor of any real estate agent we met during our search. We actually found that a lot of them were rather arrogant and made us feel like we were bothering them because our budget wasn't the highest by any means. With Carlton, we felt like we were his top priority, as I'm sure all his customers feel. This gentleman is the best in central Ohio. He really took care of us and we'd like to recommend him to you. If you are looking to buy or sell property, you would be hard pressed to find an agent who would even compare to Carlton.

Needless to say, Carlton is now a member of our extended family and we hope to have the opportunity to do business with him again in the future.

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
