We don't have the most agents. Or the most offices. But we're serious about paying personal attention to every single person that comes to us. And we have the statistics to explain every square foot of every neighborhood in Columbus.
In the end, we think that matters more than size, any day of the week.
The Parsons have been in the real estate business for over a combined 55 years and have brokered hundreds of transactions worth over $100 million.
Some companies claim they can deliver more buyers and sell houses faster because they have offices all over the Ohio, maybe even the world.
The truth is Columbus listings are sold by agents who live and breathe Columbus. Offices don't sell homes. People who know the neighborhood do.
Our clients initially choose to work with us for our reputation, knowledge, and intense focus on results. They choose to work with us again when they realize how rare it is to find authenticity in a vanilla, big box industry.
A family helping families.
Buyers from all over the world can easily find our listings - they're side by side with everyone else's on all the top websites: Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, and all the national brokerage sites.
When it comes time to move beyond a list of properties, we know the schools, the people, the micro-climates - the details that define the differences between Worthington, Clintonville, Dublin, and Grandview. In other words, we understand the things that matter when you're deciding where to live your life.
