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.

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.

We worked with Carlton this summer on purchasing a home in uptown Westerville. We had been working with him for a while on finding a home in this location. When we found a home that matched what we were looking for Carlton was quick to respond to us or the seller as well as all the other parties involved. He was professional, friendly, and honest in all of our interactions via email, phone, text, and in person. We closed in a record amount of time and were able to start our rehab project immediatly. I would recommend Carlton as a realtor to anyone!
Working with Carlton was a wonderful experience! He met with us several times and provided information for listing our house. He gave us a very accurate estimate of what our proceeds would be from the sale. He also provided an interior decorator to help stage the home and a professional photographer at no extra cost. Carlton is extremely hard working and immediately responsive to every email, text, and phone call. He was very easy to work with especially considering we had to relocate to Florida in the middle of our condo being on the market. He went beyond expectations by finding, painting, and installing a door for us. You will not find a better or more professional realtor than Carlton Shaffer. He gets an A+++ in our book!
We had very long journey to buy a condo. Carlton all this time was very supportive and helpful. He answered all our small and silly questions, always was on top of situation.
Best of the best, and we will recommend Carlton to anyone as realtor.

Carlton is one of the most caring and sincere people I have ever met. He truly cares about his clients and their needs. He even showed up one day with a ladder and materials to help us do some home repairs on our home just to help us out. I would and do recommend him to anyone looking to sell your home. He helped sell our home and build/purchase our new home.

I worked with Carlton in buying my first house. I had many questions to start out, but he took the time to explain in detail as to what my options were. Carlton is very knowledgeable of the market, especially of the greater Columbus area, and worked diligently to help me find exactly what I was looking for. Through his recommendations and with his expertise, I was able to close in no time at all. Would definitely recommend!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Lewis Center, OH.
My husband and I are new to the Columbus area and Carlton helped direct us to area that best fit our needs. He knew great lenders and other contacts to help get us into our new house and to resolve any issues once we moved in to make it our home. He responded to our questions and concerns promptly and with not only answers but information and explanations. Carlton also has knowledge about the market conditions and helped us make an offer that was fair but also gave us some value. I would highly recommend Carlton to anyone looking to purchase, buy or rent a home in the Columbus area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Grove City, OH.
Our house had been on the market for sale for 6 months by another agent. We didn't get any interest from the showings. So we ended my listing and thought we need to make some changes on the house. One day, we got recommendation from a friend that Carlton has done a great job to sell his house. After talking to him, we found him to be very knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful. We decided to give another try. He not only help staging the house, but also spend days on fixing the problems of the house with and without me. After the hard work, the house looks much beautiful and cozy, I have confidence that we will get the house sold this time. In the first week, I got much interest, and we accepted an offer and got the house sold. We feel very lucky to work with him. He is more like a friend who can help anytime. If you are looking for a real estate professional, I highly recommend Carlton J. Shaffer.
