"My wife and I were first time home buyers and had only been in Ohio for a few months. We were very impressed with CJ's knowledge of the area, his patience and experience. CJ was very accessible and set up home showings around our busy, hectic schedule. We would definitely recommend CJ Harrington."Jeffery Schulman (Brunswick, OH)
“CJ represented us through a difficult sale. His wife, Cheryl did an excellent job staging our house and CJ did a great job marketing it. The very first person to come through bought it. We were under contract within about 10 days. Unfortunately we had some challenges with our buyer, but CJ was right there to provide advice and help us work through the challenges. CJ also helped us find the perfect house where we now live today. The purchase went smooth and our sale did as well once things were sorted out with our buyer. We have worked with several real estate agents over the years since we are now living in our 6th house. CJ has been the best and I would definitely use him again. He is professional, highly competent, and always there to provide support and advice. He is not pushy and provides exactly the level of information needed for a buyer or seller to make good decisions.”.
