Robin & Ginny H.This is terribly late getting off to you Mary but I can’t thank you (and also Sue), but especially you enough for all your help, guidance, encouragement and just being there for us. You are a treasure! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The cats send their thanks too – tee hee!!
Andrew & MollyWe have been working with Mary for many years to find our dream home. She has grown to be a friend. It was a pleasure to work with her and she never gave up on us! Thanks Mary and the Columbus Team, we love our home!
Jacob & Kristen S.Sue and the entire Columbus Team are professional, courteous, and importantly, EXPERTS at buying and selling in Columbus. We bought and sold with the team and couldn’t be happier with the service, advice, and expertise they bring to the table. Thank you, Sue! We will miss you!
Colin Veatch and Bridget VerdeyenThe Columbus Team was amazing to work with when purchasing our home! They were incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and truly listened to what we were looking for when buying our new home. We cannot recommend them enough! Thank you!
Peggy NewkirkI’m not a stranger to Real Estate transactions, but in all honesty, Patrick Florence was the most sincere and helpful agent I’ve ever dealt with. He is the best!
Jaimie BrandtSue was excellent to work with as an agent, promo package was outstanding (light staging, video shots, printed materials) – very satisfied and will recommend!
John and Cheryll B.All-star team will work hard and has access to all the best resources if you are buying or selling a home. You could not find a realtor with more expertise or dedication in helping you complete your real estate transaction.
Taylor & ZachWe loved our homebuying experience with Heather and would recommend her to anyone.
Renee KasunMary was super helpful! Her knowledge and experience were excellent! She made a very tough process easy and manageable.
Sara S.Sue was very accommodating for our appointment needs and requests, even last minute! We valued her knowledge of the market and experience which was crucial in navigating the uncertainty and uncharted territory we are all encountering currently.
Kathryn YordePat Florence is an expert! He is seasoned, knowledgeable and decisive. He’s not only a real estate agent, he’s a life coach! Many times I would call him for a pep talk as we navigated buying a house during the pandemic, and every time he reassured me with solid advice. He never led us astray.
Mike and NicoleOur experience with The Columbus Team was great! Mary Allen was very knowledgeable of the city and surrounding areas. She was able to share her insights with us, which we found very helpful as first time homebuyers. The team worked very hard to help us close on time and through any issues we experienced Mary worked tirelessly to help us find our home and we couldn’t be happier! She was always positive and encouraging throughout the process. She was very quick to respond to any questions! We really enjoyed working with her!
S & K ThomsponErin and her team made the home buying and selling experience a pleasure! They were knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Deirdre & Jeff C.The Columbus Team was fantastic in helping us find a new home and sell our old one. They truly take a team approach. Everyone is knowledgeable and friendly. They are always very responsive. We will definitely recommend them and use them the next time we move.
Jan F.In the midst of COVID-19 and multiple uncertainties, Erin Ogden Oxender was able to support me in the home buying process from afar. She also had been very patient and able to look out for my interests for months preceding my sale. In “normal” times I would have been much more hands on, but was able to trust and rely on her and her team during the entire process. Thanks to all of you!
Adam & Julie T.The Columbus Team was super helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire home selling process. We sold our home very quickly by following their recommendations to prepare the home for selling. Would highly recommend this group!
John & Susan GTake your business model and create a component to teach others; because whatever you’re doing, works!
LindaSelling during the Covid-19 pandemic added additional stress to selling a home. The Columbus team provided reassurance and the sale was completed quickly and safely.
Ken & SheilaStay as you are! There is no better two words explaining how my wife and I feel that The Columbus Team is the best. The way they make you feel is like family.
Katie HolzapfelMary was an amazing agent. So patient and encouraging. I looked at many houses but none were the right fit. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen but Mary had enough hope for both of us and eventually it paid off and I got “the one”! She was always quick to respond and very accommodating to my schedule. I recommend her to everyone!
Jeff & Nycole Van HornErin was amazing. She understood our needs and wants in a home and was able to find exactly what we were looking for. She was always available to use and always had our best interests in mind, especially during the negotiations. Everything went extremely smooth thanks to her. This is our second time using Erin @ The Columbus Team and it definitely would not be our last!
L & H KaufmanI just wanted to let you know how WONDERFUL Terry Zellar was as an agent!! I appreciated her expert advice, knowledge and patience for her job. Finally after 5 LONG months of looking at over 50 homes in many areas, we finally were able to buy the perfect one for us. Everyone at the office were so helpful and kind. Terry was always ‘right there’, always returning calls quickly, with a smile. Her patience, was probably the best. She looked at what we wanted/needed and would call other REALTORs and would find the homes to look at first. Thank you Terry, you were wonderful!
Scott Sibley and Cathy KusmaTerry was very supportive and patient in our home search. She was very responsive in finding answers to questions. Also appreciated her low pressure style and allowing us to find a place we are comfortable with.
MeredithMary helped us buy our home, and then helped us sell that same home. She provided great advice and helped us to ensure that both transactions were simple, and beneficial to us. She was flexible and Worked around our schedules. She was very knowledgeable of the value of the home and insured that we were getting the best value for our money. Mary, and the team she works with were a joy to work with.
Rebecca & Erik AlexanderWe Love Terry! The whole team was great and I credit Lisa with helping us sell so quickly. Continue being so online/text accessible. We felt informed and connected and were able to move through transaction quickly.
Scott and Cathy J.Dear Terry- Scott and I would like to sincerely thank you for all your help & patience in finding our condo. We truly appreciated your relaxed “chill” personality, your frankness and ability to find the answers to all of our questions. You are a real credit to your profession and we wish you & your family the best!
Carol & Rick WhiteTerry was so patient and helpful with my everlasting questioning. She always kept me informed when there were “bumps” in the road. I could not have dreamed of an easier process to sell the property. I will definitely return to The Columbus Team when/if I have another real estate transaction. Thank you so much!
Stephanie KleinIf you are looking for a honest real estate agent, who has good communication and follow up skills, it’s Mary Allen.
Jonathan and Barb FortkampMary was awesome! Our home buying adventure was a bit untraditional and extended over a year as we delayed in selling our old house as part of a larger commercial transaction. Mary was very responsive and helpful in evaluating home values. In two circumstances MARY and the team recommended lower asking prices, which though rejected by sellers at the trim, ended up being much closer to final sell price. The house we ended up with we originally weren’t able to see at the appt, but Mary encouraged us to go back and see it and we fell in love with it. Once the offer was in the process was smooth and clear and Mary guided us through all the steps. Thanks for everything!
Barb FortkampMary was wonderful to work with and was very patient with our family. She knew exactly what we were looking for and was very knowledgeable about price and locations. She really helped us make wise decisions. We are in love with our new home.
Gina StuderMary was wonderful… A long time friend of the family, I knew it would be a comfortable working relationship. What we appreciated the most was her years of experience and her even keeled temperament which was helpful during a very emotional experience.
Jennifer WileyMary was extremely patient and encouraging through the whole process. She took a lot of time to show me multiple listings and was very responsive to my questions and concerns. The KW Capital team was AWESOME and took the worry out of selling my home. They provided knowledgeable vendors to help with repairs and home inspections. They were very pro-active in marketing my condo and guided me through every aspect of the buying and selling process. The only ‘heavy lifting’ I did was to call a moving company, and they were able to provide a list of moving companies and a nice discount. I would recommend them to anyone!
katietfreeze via ZillowHeather was a dream to work with! She was super attentive from the beginning of the process all the way PAST closing making sure my house hunt, negotiations and closing went perfectly smoothly. Her knowledge of the area and the buying process as a whole was so helpful coming from very little experience. I always knew what was going on and what next steps were. She was always available for questions and provided a speedy and helpful response. I would highly recommend Heather as a realtor to anyone searching or selling in the Columbus area. She found me my DREAM home and I felt like I was working with an old friend the entire time! Heather Gott is simply the best!!!
user163972 via ZillowI feel like Heather held my hand through the entire process. She was kind and never seemed phased by my million questions. I would highly recommend her.
Jack RouzerErin, Jeanne & Lisa were energetic on our behalf – anticipating and allaying all our misgivings and meeting all our peculiar requirements.
Matthew Rasmussen & Jennifer HayesPat was very knowledgeable and could not have been more helpful. He made selling our home easy. We have worked with him twice (listing two different homes) and will absolutely recommend him to our family & friends.
Kelly & Genie Spangler-BraithwaiteGreat job – great communication by all members. Thank you!
Richard and Claire DaubneyMary was with us every step of the way and was willing to go above and beyond to help us purchase our dream home! We are so thankful for her and The Columbus Team. Everything was easy and each step of the home buying process was explained to us. Mary gave us good advice and helped us make smart decisions! She is invaluable!
Victoria HessPat is a long time family friend and we have used him for several transactions. Selling your parents home is an emotional task to say the least, but we Know Pat, we Like him, obviously, and most of all trust him!!! He was just the best as usual during the process. Very empathetic and sensitive to the nature of the sale. We love you Pat! P.S. Jeanne and Edie were great as well!
Dustin & Muriel KeithI cannot begin to thank Mary and her team for her (their) knowledge, help and patience during our home sale with a “difficult” buyer. You all made a stressful and challenging experience better than I could have expected. Truly exceptional service and professionalism. Sincerely, thank you!
Mark & Nancy JonesWe just wanted to thank your for all your hard work in making the sale of our house such a smooth transition. It was a pleasure to work with your team. If I hear of anyone else needing a great Realtor team, I’ll send them your way!
Seiko & Momiji AndresThank you so much for your big help! We appreciated especially because you’ve done so much after we left Ohio. We couldn’t complete selling without your help. Thanks again! Mahalo
Yonni & Heather GiatisThank you for everything! Patrick, you always answered our questions and eased our fears, we appreciate all you did for us and will strongly recommend you! Patrick was recommended to us by a colleague as we began our search for our first home. Patrick served as an excellent resource and is a genuine, honest person – we trust him implicitly. Patrick was always available to answer our questions and his flexibility worked well with our busy work schedule. When placing an offer, we looked to him for guidance and valued his opinion and we are incredibly happy with our home! Even after we moved, Patrick has reached out to see if he can be of further assistance. We strongly recommend Patrick and we were immensely pleased with his work ethic and kindness during the purchase of our first home!
Josh and PaulaThis is the third house I have purchased. Patrick is, by far, the best realtor I have used. First, he has a great knowledge of the market and is honest. He has a keen eye and evaluate potential properties honestly and points out positive attributes and flaws of these properties. You can see his experience when you walk prospective homes. The professionals that Patrick recommends our first class experts. From the home inspector to the lending company, they were all a great experience. Patrick is in no rush to get you to purchase a property. He is patient and wants you to find the right house for your family, even if this takes time. Our family is grateful for his honesty, professionalism, and kindness.
Colin VeatchI did not know what to expect in my first experience with buying a home. But I’m glad I had the Columbus team to patiently walk me through and explain each part of the process. It really helped me focus on making sure that I was choosing the right home for me.
Cyril Scott PlessingerI recommend all my friends to the Columbus Team in Columbus. When I sell you will be the only company I will call. Thanks for all of your help in the past. Mary Allen could not have been more helpful she dealt with my times of convenience and made a good choice of recommending the carpet cleaning man who did a great job too.
Kay and Jon MarshallTo Edie, Jeanne, Sue, Erin and all the members of the Columbus Team. Thank you for your attention, thoughtful consistent and thoroughly professional handling of our real estate needs. It was a pleasure to work with you. Thank you also for the several gifts, handmade holiday decoration, donation to eh Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and bamboo cutting board. Bamboo in Asian culture is a sing of prosperity and good fortune. I’ll take that!
Nathan Irwin & Donna CampanaOur Realtor Mary Allen, was able to show us houses very quickly which met our needs, as we had a limited time to find a house. She explained the paperwork to us step by step so we did not feel overwhelmed. She was knowledgeable and easy to stay in touch with. We were very satisfied with her!
Don and Erica ClarkKeep doing what you are doing, you obviously have a recipe for success. Every person we worked with was the epitome of professionalism and courtesy. you have an awesome team!
Dustin & Molly CordroyWe absolutely loved working with Pat!!! He is an awesome Realtor to work with. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time home buying experience. Pat kept us at ease and was so helpful every step of the way. Pat was very encouraging, always professional and courteous. Working with Pat was Great! From Patrick to Jeanne O’Keefe and Edie James selling my house was much less stressful than anticipated. Their guidance, advice and support they offered was the best. Patrick was here through it all with me. Patrick listens without judgement and always offers the best advice. I can’t say enough about him. Your team is very lucky to have him. He is one of a kind just like Edie and Jeanne.
Abby & Brandon GreenSuper with happy with our new home! Thanks to Patrick realize a dream we have had. Thanks to Edie for helping answer our numerous questions about closing and for helping us realize this dream as well. Words cannot express how happy Branden and I were with the Columbus Team. Patrick was amazing! He really helped us understand the whole process of buying a house, and when we were stressed he would help ease our anxieties. We will definitely refer our friends to the Columbus Team and we will come back to the Columbus Team in the future.
Mary Ribe & Mike ZimmermanGreetings from Florida. Thanks for everything! You guys were great! Sue and her team were terrific every step of the way. In contract within 48 hours. Sold and moved within seven weeks. All this in large part due to the staging recommendations, photos and advertising of the Columbus team.
Eric & Jessica RhodesWish that Mary could have come up to NW Ohio to show us homes. She was our realtor when we purchased our first 2 homes. We were very pleased that we received an offer so quickly and were able to move forward to closing. So that we were able to purchase our new home.
Teri MeiderI have recommended Mary to several people. Keep doing what you are doing!
Chuck and Anna MilliganPat was great. Very helpful throughout the process. His help didn’t end at closing, as he has continued to graciously answer questions.
Rhonda B. & Ada B.I want to take this opportunity to thank you for such a wonderful experience in buying a home. I have lived in 7 markets and never had a Realtor provide the service, knowledge, sensitivity and compassion you have to my mother and me. When we met 3 years ago, you realized that I wasn’t able to purchase a home at that time due to trying to sell my home in another state. That didn’t stop you. You called on a regular basis, seeking out what my needs were and always touching base to see if you could be of help. And 3 years later, you helped us find and purchase a home with great and memorable experience along the way. Who could ask for more than that! I realized at that time, you were the Realtor for me. Your persistence, service and caring over 3 year goes unprecedented. You were so caring to my 85 year old mother (by the way, she has a crush on you). You made sure she was part of the process and provided transportation for her (when I couldn’t). The closing experience was outstanding! Not a problem at all. Your calm demeanor, knowledge, creativity and persistence is to be highly commended. You have followed up with me several times since the purchase to see how things are going and if all is well. The wonderful experience continues. I have told my story many times since you helped my mother and me buy a home. I have used our experience with you as a model for my managers and sales staff. You are the best and I am sure The Columbus Team values you as much as we do. My many thanks to you. I am and will continue to recommend you as the Realtor of Choice! Please feel free to use my comments, my name and phone number so that I may tell your current, potential and future clients that YOU ARE THE BEST and if they want a great experience for one of the single most important decisions in their life, that Patrick Florence should definitely be a part of it!
Jeff & AndreaSue was very knowledgeable about the selling market in Columbus. She was wonderful to work with and always kept us up-to-date on our listing! Erin was great to work with on our purchase. She knew just the right questions to ask to get us into our dream home. There were a few bumps along the way and Erin was always available to reassure us that everything was being taken care of. It was a very stress free process. Edie has been great to work with in coordinating our closing and handling renting our other property. She’s extremely detail oriented and always available.
Ron & Andrea BartoschPatrick Florence of The Columbus Team went far beyond what we expected to help us find a house in our price range in the area we liked. He never made us feel like we were a bother even when we had seen tons of houses or when we had silly questions. He knows real estate and is very good at buying and selling houses! He is patient and dedicated with first time buyers!
Bonnie MorganMy experience with Erin Ogden and The Columbus Team was fantastic! Erin was my “second set of eyes” in Columbus while I tried to sell my home in Michigan (over 3 years). She was always available to answer questions and guide me to where I needed to go. Closing was a breeze with the help of The Columbus Team. Erin recommended a great attorney that handled a particular need concerning the deed. The teams’ help went beyond closing to recommend a handyman and painter to help me through those tough first few weeks. How could anyone ask for more!
Wayne Piper and Dave ProctorDave and I are more than pleased to highly recommend the services of ‘The Columbus Team’ to anyone who is either preparing to sell their home and/or to purchase a new home. Through each step of the process we were guided and helped with not only patience but with careful and thoughtful attention to our needs. Sue helped us prepare our home for sale and did an excellent job of negotiating not only its sale price but also helped us negotiate a purchase price for a home that we initially thought was beyond our price range. Patrick guided us through the inspection process as well as the closing on our new property. At each step of the way, Sue, Patrick, and the team demonstrated the highest levels of professionalish but did so in a manner that both instilled confidence and made us feel like good friends. When we’re ready to move again (and we hope that’s not for a considerable time) we will certainly turn to ‘The Columbus Team’.
Mary BoothI felt the team were my “cheerleaders” always telling me everything would work out and it did. I will always remember Edie asking me where I was going to move. She said she would help me find a place. Everyone always asked how things were going in my life. I really appreciate that care and concern. I am enjoying my new place. Thank you for the effort everyone put in getting my house sold.
Emma McCandlishPatrick was awesome. He helped put our minds at ease in purchasing our first home! We truly value and appreciate his opinion and knowledge. Thank you!
Traci DixonMary Allen is a trooper! We looked at houses in the morning, evening, rain and snow. She quickly picked up on what I wanted in a “home” and helped me find a perfect fit. Her knowledge of the area and home buying in general is invaluable.
Ron and Britney CiderErin and The Columbus Team made our first time home buying experience so easy! We had a very specific area in mind and a limited budget. Erin was so dedicated to letting us know when new properties fitting our criteria came on the market. She also was extremely flexible with our scheduling needs. It took us nearly 5 months to find our “right” home (as well as several “wrong” ones), but Erin and her team never lost steam. They even came in at the last minute to do some additional work in order for us to close on time. I would absolutely recommend The Columbus Team to anyone looking to buy a home!
Janine Cannell and Ryan HaniganErin was wonderful to work with. She was especially helpful and willing to work around our busy schedules. She is very knowledgeable about the market/system and was a great teacher.
Joanne EubanksThe Columbus Team provided immediate listing service on multiple properties. Their expertise was especially valuable when determining selling prices given the challenging real estate climate. Weekly updates were reassuring and present, even when we were out of the country. Their leadership position in the real estate field is well deserved. I highly recommend their services to list, price, market and sell homes in Central Ohio.
Zillow User 0828837“You will find your forever home…just stay focused!” This was the mantra that the Keller Williams Columbus team echoed over and over as they carried us through the entire process of selling and buying. We began our journey in 2012 by getting straight, honest and positive recommendations for saving for our next home. We experienced a few bumps in 2013, in the midst of preparing to sell and buy Sue and her team stuck by us. When we were ready to pick back up, she helped steer us in the right direction of “what to do with the house to sell it”. We eventually found a buyer who loved our home as much as we did. I am so grateful that we found our forever home under the wonderful guidance and support of Sue and the Columbus team.
Maggie Foxarcher“Patrick Florence was extremely helpful and patient with us as we searched for a home in a very specific neighborhood. We appreciated his guidance, his responsiveness and his positive demeanor throughout the entire, sometimes stressful, process. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in Columbus.”
Guisinger (via Zillow)Sue, and the team were very responsive to my needs in selling my Aunt’s Condo. I strongly recommend this group of professionals in purchasing/selling real-estate.
Gary9442 (via Zillow)Four years ago when we needed to find a home very quickly to move into, we contacted Patrick Florence regarding a home that had been on the market for several months & proposed a lease-purchase agreement. They were willing to work with us & the seller of the home which turned out to be a win-win situation for all party’s involved. Patrick & Sue were both very helpful & accommodating. We recently closed on the house and are very pleased with how the whole process went. We would not hesitate to refer other’s we know to Sue & her team!
Zillow User 52122439We met Pat through neighbors and due to his knowledge of the area we were looking to purchase in, chose him to be our realtor. As first time home buyers the process seemed daunting, but Pat walked us through how the process would go and was available to answer our (many) questions. My husband and I greatly appreciated his knowledge, patience, and advice. Pat was able to provide us with a list of reliable home inspectors and companies to use throughout the home buying process. Upon finding our dream home, we dealt with some communication challenges from our loan processor. Pat helped guide us through these challenges and we were able to close on our home. My husband and I couldn’t be happier in our new home!! I have already recommended Pat to friends and would not hesitate to do so in the future.
ktzigs (via Zillow)I have worked with Patrick Florence from The Columbus Team to purchase two homes now. Both times, he was so friendly and easy to work with. He was very patient and never pressured me to rush such a big decision. Patrick is very accessible, responsive, and knowledgeable. He was always willing to go out of his way to help me out, even after I had closed and moved into my new home. Edie James, the closing coordinator, was also very friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend The Columbus Team to anyone needing to buy/sell a home. They are all very professional and personable!
fraur0 (via Zillow)In a poor market for selling, Pat was very persistent. He found a tenant and managed my property for three years. With his advice during negotiation, I was able to sell my property for more than I thought I would be able to. I was very happy with the experience.
Zillow user 20140609195500984Couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience. Professional throughout with our best interests in mind 100% of the time. Would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home in Columbus. Always felt informed of what was going on.
Anita Gastaldo (via Zillow)We contacted Patrick a year before we went on the market. We had questions about getting our house ready to sell and then selling, along with finding a new home. He was great every step of the way. I am very impressed with Patrick and the rest of the team was wonderful as well. If I ever have to buy or sell again, I will use them!
Lauren Tonetti and Brian RueThe Columbus Team made a stressful process stress free! We knew they had our best interests at heart and were wonderful to work with. We would highly recommended them to anyone buying or selling a home.
Joe BruckmanAs a first time home buyer, Mary and her team listened to what I was looking for, answered all of my questions, and offered advice and guidance whenever I needed it. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home. Her responsiveness and organization made the process easy. The expertise of the entire team was much appreciated.
Kerry E. WapleI chose The Columbus Team because of their experience and professional reputation. Not only did I benefit from that but their attention to detail, follow through and perseverance helped me get the most from my property and made this whole process go very smoothly. This dynamic team has strong ethics and knows how to navigate in this industry. They were great guides that gave me the confidence I needed during tough decisions. I so appreciate all of their efforts!
Robert and Emily HyattPat was an amazing guide as our realtor. He gave us his honest opinions about properties as we were house hunting and understood our need for our growing family, sometimes better than we did! I can’t say enough kind words about both our realtors. Pat & Sue were always available and very patient while we looked at houses. I would recommend The Columbus Team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Allison & PaulThank you so much for our beautiful house. Mary, we are so fortunate to have you as our realtor, and project boss. You have been so reliable and provide a wealth of information. Ricky, you have been a great contractor and handyman. We are so lucky that our first house is one that really feels like ours, and that’s something we wouldn’t have without you. We can’t wait to have you over for dinner for a proper thank you, and we promise not to sneak any housework in! Thank you again for everything. We’re so glad to have you as friends.
