My husband and I recently relocated to Dublin Oh from Philadelphia. I must say that Lee Ritchie could not have done a better job in helping us find a home. She went above and beyond, working night and day to help us on our search. She always returned our calls ASAP and made us feel like we were her most important clients. I will forever be grateful for how seamless she made this process, turning a usually stressful situation (buying a house) into a fun and exciting adventure. Thank you Lee!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Harrison West, Columbus, OH.
Lee provided a level of service above and beyond! She was able to very quickly help negotiate a competitive offer that was accepted and continue to over deliver throughout the entire buying process: From Showings ---> to Closing! She also is very familiar with getting people in touch with the correct team of inspectors and financing. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone and have already passed her info on to a few friends. Thank you for the excellent service!!!!
This is another out of town success story. We live in California and were interested in finding a home in Columbus. Thinking that since the housing industry has been depressed for the past few years, we expected that agents would be falling all over themselves to represent a serious buyer. That simply was not the case. Many agents wouldn't call us back. After a few rather frustrating false starts we discovered Lee. She bent over backward to accommodate the challenges presented with the buyer in a distant city.
Lee is the dream agent. She is very communicative and returns calls and emails promptly. Although more often than not she would answer calls the first time. She seemed very attuned to modeling her interactions to accommodate our preferred style of interaction. She is very knowledgeable on the Columbus market, very detail oriented, a gutsy negotiator and just a really nice person. Our closing had a few bumps in the road due to the seller's agent dropping the ball. Lee handled all this like a champ. We really felt like there was never a cause for alarm because Lee had it all in hand. We had such a high level of confidence in her that we had her handle the final walk through and closing herself. We highly recommend her and will happily be working with her again in the future.
My husband and I were helping our son find a condo in either Short North or the Brewery District, or Grandview. We are not from Columbus, and we knew these areas by name only. This was our son's first move from apartment life to home ownership, so we were all very cautious. We noticed Lee from the reviews written about her knowledge of Columbus in general and areas close to downtown in particular. Our trust in her grew as she honestly and openly told us her recommendations as to whether a condo was going to be a good location for our son or not. Every time, she was spot on. We also started doing our own homework, looking for new areas and specific location based on our budget. After suggesting one in particular, Lee told us the area was not a great option, knowing what our son wanted and knowing that resale down the road would be a challenge. When we went to the area, we knew she was right! Our budget wasn't as high as some that Lee has sold, yet she treated us like we were the only clients she had. Once Lee was able to pinpoint our son's exact priorities, she immediately suggested we look back at a condo we'd see weeks before. She was right. The location was perfect, the size was right and the price was reasonable. Lee also helped us through the discussions with the owner and recommended an outstanding home inspector. Her assistant, Paul Ritter, has been outstanding during the process as well. His attention to detail helped tremendously during the closing process. We couldn't be more impressed with Lee and recommend her highly.
Lee was an exceptional partner in finding our first home. She quickly gained our confidence and became our trusted adviser in this process. Her communication was immediate, clear and informed. Her process and team was first class, which helped us to feel at ease with the many steps of the home-purchasing process. It is no exaggeration to say that working with her was a joy; she is a truly talented real estate professional that I whole-heartedly recommend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Merion Village, Columbus, OH.
I was a first time home buyer and new to the Columbus area. Lee took her knowledge of the Columbus real estate market and found me my first home. From the start of the process to the end of the process Lee delivers excellent customer service and made my feel comfortable about any questions or concerns I had during the home buying process. Lee knows the real estate market, she can get you in contact with the best loan officers in town, and can deliver a streamline home buying process.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Scioto Woods, Columbus, OH.
Lee helped us sell our current home and buy a new home. I couldn’t be happier with both transactions!
Lee was honest, yet respectful, in giving us suggestions on things to change/update before we put our house on the market. She even helped up stage it for pictures and showings. Her eagle eye and resourcefulness helped sell our house in two weeks! The process couldn’t have been easier.
Our house sold so quickly that we hadn’t even gone to look at any new homes. Lee was right on top of it. She really took the time to understand what we were looking for and set up and refined our search website accordingly. There were multiple offers on our dream home and Lee helped us craft the winning offer. The time between contract acceptance and closing had a few hurdles and it was very was emotional and stressful, but Lee made all the difference. She was there to answer questions and phone calls at all hours of the day and night. And, she has the best lenders, contractors, etc. Overall, we are extremely pleased with Lee’s service (and her Client Care Specialist, Paul – he is just as fantastic!) and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Columbus market.

I am a fist time home buyer and Lee was very helpful in all aspects of buying a home. She knew the area where I was looking very well and helped me choose a great house. She also had a great list of lenders, home inspectors, contractors, ext to help with the whole buying experience. She was always available if I had any questions with the home buying process and had a lot of great advice for me when I needed it. I would recommend her for anyone looking in the Columbus area who wants a great home and a smooth buying experience.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Delaware, OH.
My husband and I were first-time home buyers, and had a wonderful experience working with Lee. Her experience in the real estate market was obvious, and we always felt that she had our best interests at heart. She truly was our advocate throughout the buying process and we couldn't be happier with the result! Her communication was excellent and she was always available to answer any questions that came up. I would recommend Lee to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially first-time buyers.
