Team reviews

I actually didn't work with John Jacobus directly. I worked with Bob Petty with the Jacobus group. I can say that Bob was very patient and willing to explore new areas of Columbus during my search. I also worked with Tracy Anderson and she was very responsive and able to help with questions when my lender was not able.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Groveport, OH.

Our home was in contract two days after going live, and was closed 37 days thereafter. Everyone I dealt with were professional and performed their job more than adequately. My thanks to all involved.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Galena, OH.

List it with him and he will sell it. It is the third property he has sold for me. He will negotiate the best deal possible on your behalf. It will be a pleasant experience for everybody.
