"It was so nice to work with such wonderful people! They helped me find the perfect house for me and my dogs! Thank you so much!

 -Abra Milenthal

"Working with David and Laura was great! They kept us immediately informed of anything that might fit our needs. They were actually on vacation when the house we bought came onto the market, but that didn't stop them from texting us about it as soon as it hit. We've also worked with them to sell our current home, which sold before it even hit the market! Couldn't recommend The Powers Group enough!"

-Mike and Sarah Eckel

"The Powers Group worked with my family to purchase our first Bexley home! David and Laura were helpful, patient, and readily available. Their knowledge of and love for the neighborhood made the search experience exciting and fun. We feel like we gained a community, not just a home."

-Philip and Robyn Storer

"As a recent hire to the Ohio State University, we luckily found The Powers Group listed as one that works with the University. Our family is not from Ohio and we knew very little about the Columbus area and really hit the jackpot with these realtors. After an extremely productive "house hunting" half day with The Powers Group, we know we saw the best available homes to meet our family needs. They also consistently gave us spot on timely and helpful advice during the process. Even after all of this, that was just the beginning of their help with our home purchase and relocation. Although we were living five hours away they consistently helped us with subcontractors and installation deliveries locally until we could move our family into our lovely home (thanks again to The Powers Group!). They are extremely efficient and knowledgeable, but even more importantly down to earth and incredibly easy to work with and they made this a pleasurable/non-stressful life event. Also they were amazingly consistent with prompt communication from start to finish 6 weeks later. I highly recommend The Powers Group for anyone in greater Columbus."

-Doug and Holly Graham 

"We listed two homes with David and Laura as winter was approaching. Both homes were sold quickly and at a fair price. The processes were expertly handled. We moved out of town and relied on David and Laura to handle some details that went above and beyond! These were modest homes and we were treated with a huge amount of respect and courtesy! Will recommend David and Laura to anyone (and I already have!)."

-Colin and Jen Brown 

"We engaged Street Sotheby's International Realty to assist with multiple home sales and purchases over the past 18 months, and are greatly appreciative of everyone's efforts. Dave, Laura, and Megan of the Powers Group put forth an outstanding marketing effort, while also bringing to us a keen understanding of the Columbus market that was invaluable to our decision-making process. Furthermore, we are grateful for their patience and professionalism. We strongly recommend the Powers Group and Street Sotheby's International Realty to future home buyers and sellers."

-Peter and Julie Hathaway

"David and his team were extremely professional and congenial. They communicated promptly and efficiently. They made an assessment and managed my expectations in such a way that what could've been a very stressful experience was actually mostly enjoyable. My sincere thanks to them.” 

-Roscoe Betsill

"David and Laura Powers with Street Sotheby's helped my wife and I find our first home. Very honest and they make themselves available for you. They get our full recommendation and future business."

-Jon and Grace Dixon

"We had a great experience on both the selling and the buying side. We sincerely appreciated the attention to detail Megan, Laura, and David paid to staging our house for photos. Their advice regarding pricing, and David's negotiating skills when the offer came in. We were very pleased with the outcome. When it came time to buy, it was a very tight, tough market. They listened to our needs and did not give up. At times they pushed us out of our comfort zone - to try houses we might not initially like and that was a good thing. In the end, David helped us get out of a contract for a house that was not what we wanted upon inspection and further reflection, and Megan showed us the house across the street. It was a perfect fit! We had one more tough contract negotiation, which David navigated like a champ, and we were finally home owners again! YAY!"

-Patti Markham 

"David was always available to answer our many questions as we progressed through the challenges of buying a home in a new city. We appreciate also the addition help from Laura and Megan.

-Warren and Felicia Bousquet

"Dave found us a great home in the tight Bexley market. He was outstanding through the whole process and made the whole move as painless as possible for our whole family!"

-Mitchell and Deborah Grayson

"Best case scenario... Our house sold quickly for more than we thought we would ever get and then we found our dream home. It was a wonderful experience and David, Laura and Megan were wonderful to work with. We have found our forever home thanks to the Powers Group!! They're the best in the business!"

-Asher and Angela Abenaim

"We had no idea what to expect when we started, as we bought and sold our first two homes "for sale by owner" many years ago. Our experience with Dave, Laura, Megan and their team was beyond our expectations. They were responsive at lightening speed, accommodating of our crazy schedules, and had a wealth of information about really nuanced aspects of a purchase in the community we were considering. It really was priceless support and guidance during an emotional time. I would recommend them to anyone embarking on the home buying journey!!"

-Melissa

"Moving to a new city because of a new job was exciting, but also scary. David Powers and his team helped us with so much, beyond just selecting a new home. He oriented us to the community, gave us useful recommendations on schools, and was patient with us during our search. Ultimately, David helped us locate the ideal home for our new family. We can't thank him enough.

-Chris and Anne Garcia

"The team did a great job leading us through the sales process. Being first time sellers, we were very nervous but they answered all of our questions and helped us sell our house above listing price."

-Jason and Cherie Caudill

'We could not be happier with how our home buying experience went with the Powers Group. They were timely, professional and went out of their way to meet our every need."

-Todd and Melissa Phillips

"The Powers are not only experienced and thorough professionals, but a true pleasure to work with. The best realty experience we've had by far."

- Matthew and Kelly Allen

"The Powers Group were able to assist with market analysis, pricing, staging our home, preparing us to show, internet presence and all aspects of the speedy sale of our property. On the buy side, they worked tirelessly to research the market, determine which properties met our needs and work around our schedules to visit properties. Their knowldge of building structure, maintenance, and property values helped us decide on a home that is just right for us. I would recommend them without reservation!"

- Mimi and Andrew Roberts

"David is an exceptional agent. I've bought and sold 7 houses in my life and there has never been a agent who was able to better meet my needs than David. He is extremely accessible and makes every effort to make sure his clients find the right house and get the best deal. Even after the house has closed David remains a great contact for various home issues. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is looking for an exceptional agent."

- Christopher Doty

"From Day 1, The Powers Group was absolutely fantastic. We are new to the area, and David spent quite a bit of time orienting us to the community and various real estate options. As we moved through our process, David was with us every step of the way; in addition to staying on top of the (very tight!) Bexley market, he made sure we were getting information about school and community resources as well. When it came time to put in our offer, David was a very strong advocate for us, and when things got a little hairy during the negotiations, David represented our position extremely well. Megan and Laura stepped in to help on numerous occasions and were extremely pleasant to work with as well. We have told everyone we have met so far about our wonderful experience with The Powers Group and will continue to do so! We can't wait to see David, Laura and Megan in the neighborhood!"

- Lynne and Michael Garfinkel

"The Powers group handled both the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home with complete professionalism. All you really need to know is that I would use them again and refer them out."

- Randy Sokol

"David was a great partner in our home search from the outset in indentifying our selection criteria to then looking at potential purchases and then all the way through the negotiation and closing process. David was relentless in his commitment to serve us and ensure that he was helping us meet our objectives, and at all times provided his guidance and market knowledge to help refine and manage our expectations. David invested considerable time and resources to get this deal done since he knew that this was the home that we wanted and that, in addition to all his other professional and personal attributes, is why I would not hesitate to recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the Columbus area."
-Fred Coons

"Dave did an extraordinary job handling the sale of my mother's house -- a complicated transaction that unfolded over several months. (Because I had power-of-attorney over my mother's affairs, I was the client.) From the beginning of the process, when he provided excellent counsel on pricing the house and on preparing it for sale, to the end, when he quickly an efficiently closed the deal, he was the consummate professional. His strategic guidance was always spot-on. He kept me well-informed and involved -- even though I live in another part of the country. And he navigated several surprises -- one buyer's financing falling through, for instance -- with steadiness and aplomb. He offers what everyone wants in a Realtor -- honesty, integrity, great communication skills, and a sophisticated understanding of the local market. I recommend him -- enthusiastically -- to anyone looking for an agent."
-Daniel Pink

"We had a fantastic experience with David and Laura. They brought a wealth of knowledge to us, as well as a broad scope of the neighborhoods and communities. Both personal and professional, we had all questions answered and even more so. We couldn't be happier with their help in finding our home and look forward to working with them in the future."

-Jill and Chris Taylor

"Dave went above and beyond to educate us and provided honest feedback. He is still continuing to assist us! It’s great having an agent born and raised in the neighborhood. What a priceless asset!"

-Laura and Brad Hollo

"Our experience was seamless and excellent. We were moving from N.Y. and David handled all of the details on this end. He always kept us in the loop with emails, phone calls, etc… He was always available and quick to respond. Very knowledgeable of local trades people after closing. He made the entire process very easy. We have now sold and purchased with David Powers. I would highly recommend his services. He’s responsible, professional and has excellent knowledge of Bexley.”

-Catherine & Jeffrey Boutelle

“I have worked with several different Bexley realtors over the years and David and Laura are at the top of our list. Very professional, efficient, readily available, and very knowledgeable about the current real estate market. They were a joy to work with!”

-Michael Roddy

“Laura was fantastic in dealing with what our needs/wants/wishes were & our back and forth on so many properties we saw. She would drop everything to meet us whenever it was convenient for us. This was a big decision for my family to purchase a home & we had a lot of indecisiveness over a period of time. Laura was very patient. Everything was on our terms.”

-Amber Toney

“We couldn’t have hoped for better realtors. They were thorough, professional, kind, and helpful. And they got the job done – in two transactions where anything could “fall through” at any time due to the many factors and individuals involved – helping us buy our new home and selling our old home.Moving is a stressful time in life. Dave and Laura, through their professionalism and attention to detail, made it as stress free as possible and we really appreciated that.”

-Stephen and Missy Bedell

Being first time homebuyers we were cautious entering the market as we had heard horror stories. David and Laura Powers were amazing. They made the process easy and enjoyable, patiently answered our countless questions and made us feel and acted like we were their top priority. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone else.

-Melissa & Paul Selner

"David is an extremely effective and personable real estate professional. He has a deep and detailed knowledge of his market and pays close attention to his clients particular needs throughout the sales process, keeping his client fully apprised along the way. He's a great person to partner with and has a high level of communication which instills trust through the process. He will provide creative, out of the box solutions to the unique circumstances of real estate sales.”

-Robert Ferguson 

“Laura and David are who we turned to when my mother needed some extra care finding a new home near us, in the city we love. They clearly knew how important it was to have my mother in a safe welcoming place that would afford her the ability, both financially and physically, to stay for years to come! Both David and Laura provided extra attention and time to help us achieve the right situation for my mother. Settling was never an option!!My husband and I know David and Laura to be wonderful members of our community and great parents, but have not had the opportunity to work with them as professionals. They were wonderful!

-Lori Ann Feibel 

"We had a wonderful experience buying our first home, due largely to the assistance of David Powers. David brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the Bexley area. He is also an expert listener, and as my husband and I discussed what we liked and did not like about various houses, he helped point us in the direction of homes that fit our preferences. David is a genuine, friendly, enjoyable person to be around, which we appreciated as we spent hours walking through homes and discussing our options. We felt that his follow through and attention to detail were exemplary. Though we purchased our home over 6 months ago, David continues to follow up to make sure we are settling in well, and to answer any questions we have about the house and neighborhood. We truly enjoyed working with David Powers, and fully intend to call him if and when we ever move away from our lovely new home."


-Katie and Graham Baldwin

“We had a great experience with David Powers, from the first discussion to the final sale. We had a tough situation with a rental house that had a tenant in it. David and his staff worked with our tenant and helped make her transition into a new place as smooth as possible for all of us. We wouldn’t have been able to sell our home without that. We had listed the home with 2 different agents within a 5 year span prior to David and his team, and never received a single offer. He was very professional and communication was great throughout the entire process.  David did his homework prior to our listing and kept us informed at all times. He met or exceeded all of our expectations!”

-Scott & Jenni Remeis

 

“David & Laura Powers are true professionals at every phase of real estate. They let us know immediately of all new homes hitting the market that may fit our needs. They helped connect us with other quality area professionals such as lenders, home inspectors, contractors, etc. to make our transition as smooth as possible. Finally, they did and excellent job in helping us stage and market our prior home for sale. We would recommend the Wagenbrenner Company and David & Laura Powers for anyone looking to sell or buy a home.”

-Bill & Julie Kay 

“David and Laura are the ultimate real estate professionals. During the past 6 months of looking for a property I never felt as comfortable with a real estate professional as I did with them. Their advice and counsel was Extraordinary.”

-John Rentz 

“Our home selling and buying experience was excellent. Dave and Laura always had our best interests in mind during the listing process, the remediation process, the closing process and even in the post possession process. We feel that we weren’t a commission. The contacts that Dave and Laura provided for remediation followed through as promised. Above and Beyond what I have ever experienced in a Realtor.”

-Ben W. 

"David and Laura exceeded our expectations. They were both extremely helpful and made themselves available at all times. Without them we would not have found the perfect house."

-Adam R. 

"David was wonderful to work with and my wife and I highly recommend him. We found him to be easy to work with and tactical in his approach. Where I believe David differentiates himself centers on service and making the process easier for his clients. For example, there were numerous non-standard third parties we wanted to consult that fell outside of the standard real estate transaction. Instead of simply forwarding us a name and number and leaving it up to us...he reached out to the third parties directly and coordinated consult. We were able to focus on our day jobs while he was going above and beyond to make the process easier."

-Matthew McPeek 

“Dave… made this as smooth as can be. Going above and beyond to get us in contract, in the house we wanted and were critical in the closing process.”

-Benjamin Stein

“We recently moved to Columbus from out of state, and we were unfamiliar with the area. David provided insight into location, valuation and maintenance that increased our confidence in our decision. David’s recommendations for property inspector, lender and title agent were also excellent.”

-Grady & Dana Burkett 

"Dave was great to work with from start-to-finish. He helped my wife and I buy our first home and we could not be happier with it. When you do business with Dave, you only deal with the best. From lender, to inspector, to title company, etc., everyone that Dave is connected with is trustful, has your best interest in mind, and is an expert in their field. When we sell the house we are in now, it will be through Dave. When we buy our next house, we will go through Dave. No questions asked."

-Jack Rafferty 

"It was wounderful working with David and Powers Group"

- 2016 Seller

"As first-time homebuyers, we wanted to work with a Realtor we could trust. As soon as we started working with David, we knew we had made the right decision. David took time to understand our needs, and patiently worked with us to find the right home. We were very happy to work with David, and we strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."


-Sejal and Bhavik Kothari

 

“David and Laura went over and above what any agent should have to do. They lead us though a very painful purchase with a smile and reassurance the whole time. They contacted all kinds of professional people to make sure we got the best right place. I was so impressed with their honesty,   ….We would all recommend David and Laura to everyone!!!!”

-Linda Blackburn 

“Dave and Laura service level was excellent.”
