Best Real Estate Agent in Columbus Ohio

Ok, I don't know about the best but to me, Donald Payne and his team do an amazing job. With thousands of Facebook followers, a great social media campaign and the time he takes for clients no matter the budget, Don is the one to call. I have never met a more dedicated agent.

Last winter, Don calls me and asks about business. It was currently  2°  outside and yet he was traipsing through the snow showing property. Don said that it doesn't matter what the weather is doing, people still have to buy and sell houses. His dedication to his business and to his clients is more than simply a business relationship, it's personal. While many of my clients focus on high-end, luxury properties, or more expensive clients, Don focuses on the client regardless of the price. He doesn't  care if it's an $80,000 house or a $480,000 house, if the client needs any type of property in any particular range or needs to sell a house, Don gives them the same amount of attention and care.
To me, as a real estate marketer, this is highly important. I once worked with a real estate agent that gave a completely different level of service to someone buying or selling a $400,000 house and someone selling a $100,000 house. Yes, the commission is different, but the service needs to be the same. I remember hearing from the folks with the lower-priced home that they couldn't get their agent to call them back and they just didn't feel like he cared.

I certainly don't get that from Donald Payne.

Donald has been helping people in Columbus Ohio for years and with his team of family and friends, he focuses not only on getting buyers the right home to helping sellers regardless of their current financial situation. Don helps with people in short sale situations, foreclosures, or people that need to sell quickly and need a cash offer. Whether its investments, distressed borrowers, or high end luxury condominiums in downtown Columbus, Don does not discriminate.

So, even though I get paid to advertise for Donald Payne I don't always write blogs like this. I really do recommend and highly endorse Donald Payne with Vision Realty in Columbus Ohio. He served many different areas around the Columbus market including Lewis Center, Gahenna,  Worthington, and numerous other communities and smaller villages surrounding the main city. If you're moving to Columbus or you need a referral, don't hesitate to call Donald Payne with Vision Realty.
