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.
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.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Canal Winchester, OH.
My wife Lori and I just sold our house in a less than a desirable area and purchased a big beautiful home in the country thanks to the help of our agent Carlton Shaffer. I am grateful for Carlton's loyal and dedicated service.
Some real estate agents get a reputation for being greedy or pushy, or they are not receptive to what their clients want, but Carlton is the farthest thing from that. He listened to us, took his time explaining the process of selling and buying, and was realistic with the time table and the costs involved.
The negotiations did not go smoothly, but Carlton remained diligent throughout. He spent late nights drawing up contracts and sacrificed time and money for us to buy our dream house. Through a series of small miracles, we were able to get the deal done. Lori and I could not be happier! We are grateful for Carlton and will recommend him to anyone we come across that is buying/selling.
I would like to recognize and celebrate Carlton’s dedication and generosity. It's rare to find a man of his character.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Obetz, OH.
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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Plain City, OH.
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!
