Team reviews

I worked with Bob Petty. Bob forwarded me MLS listings for months. Whenever I decided on a different area he would switch the area and make sure to point out new listings. I was leasing a condo and was informed the owners wanted to sell in a quick manner. We went on one Sunday and looked at three houses that from the pictures looked nice but when we saw them in person they were far from what I wanted. I asked Bob if there were any others in the area. He made a phone call right away and we went to two more properties he suggested within 20 minutes. They were the same price and it was easy to see which was the better value. We made an offer that night and my offer was accepted shortly after. Bob also gave me a great referral for a lender who secured me a great rate and was so quick we had the docs approved two weeks before the owners could even move out. I love my house, thanks for the help Bob!

Bought a home in 2014 in Olentangy, OH 43035.
Primary point of contact: Sue French

I highly recommend Sue French if you are planning on selling or buying a condo/house. She helped us buy our house in a matter of 2 months! Her stellar negotiating skills got us a great deal, too! It was reassuring to know she always had our best interest in mind, and her willingness to work around our schedule was very helpful. We would have been completely lost without her guidance throughout the entire process. Sue is a wealth of knowledge and definitely knows her stuff!  More Less
