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.

Sold a home in 2010.

I worked with Carlton in 2010 to sell my current home and buy my new home. He was absolutely wonderful! Not only was he knowledgeable and friendly, he really cares. This comes across in his detail-oriented work. He was always easily reachable, able to answer all my questions and concerns. He was able to sell my house in an extremely tough housing market. My new home was a new build and his experience in construction of luxury homes definitely came in handy. He visited the site weekly to make sure everything was going according to plan and being done properly. This was awesome! Took the stress of building off of me. Carlton handled any issues directly with the construction supervisor for me. Carlton consistently performed at an above average level to other realtors. I had a different realtor when I bought my first home and can definitely say the lack of personal investment is noticeable in hindsight. Carlton takes your family in, makes your wants and needs his. He even helped with staging my home for sell. How many realtors do that? I mean they'll give you all the advice, but he actually gets in to doing all the work with you. I gave his name to my friend and sister-in-law. Both used him to sell their homes and buy their current homes. They always tell me how happy they were with him. I know if I decide to sell again, I wouldn't hesitate to use him.  More Less

Bought a home in 2010.

I strongly and without hesitation recommend Carlton for use by any friend, family member, or business colleague that you wish to provide with a positive experience in the stressful and emotional world of real estate. Having moved many times in over 20 years of military service, I have experienced many different realtors. I can say that Carlton's unique combination of likable personality, high realtor IQ, and strong business acumen is amongst the best I've ever worked with. What separates Carlton from the others is his ability to establish and create a caring and mutually inclusive relationship that makes you feel like he has a personal stake and risk in the purchase or sale of your property. He can be counted on to respond, communicate, and take action effectively and efficiently. Timeliness is never an issue with Carlton. He knows his game and protects his interests foremost --- the relationship he has developed with his clients. I have used him before and plan to use him again now as I sell a home and move to another location. A+++ rating for a true real estate professional.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Southside, Columbus, OH.

Carlton was very helpful in the purchase of my first home. I have not worked with carlton for very long. I told him what i was looking for in the purchase of my first home. I had other realtors before him that was not helpful and did not provide me with what i was looking for in my first home. Carlton was able to do that for me and my girl friend. I plan to purchase some rental properties in the next couple years and plan to use carlton from here out.  More Less
