    Ratings & Reviews

    I needed to sell my house and listed it with another Realtor first and then tried it FSBO. Neither worked so I call on Ken Wightman, who is the expert in the Victorian Village/Short North market. He gave me some suggestions on changes, which I reluctantly made, but it made all the difference and the house then sold quickly and efficiently. I wonder why I didn’t go for the experienced market leader in my neighborhood in the first place. He knew what it would take and got it done. I would highly recommend him.

    Sold a home in 2014 in The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43201.

    I know a lot of Realtors but there is only one like Ken. He is on top of his market, knows just about every house in the Short North / Victorian Village area. And because he lists more than any other Realtor, he knows what is coming to the market before they get there. Anyone can unlock the door, but he will get you the inside scoop and help you all the way through the process. I give him my highest recommendation. He has been instrumental in my success in the rental real estate market in Victorian Village.  More Less

    Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Victorian Village, Columbus, OH.

    We needed to sell our existing house first to buy a new house. We didn’t realize how difficult the process is.   Because of Ken’s experience he was able to guide us through the turmoil and get us into our new home in spite of issues that unexpectedly arose. We recommend him highly especially if you are in a highly competitive market. He was an excellent advisor throughout the process.  More Less
