"Don Shaffer came highly recommended to my husband, Paul, and I. He sold our home to a very nice couple in less than a day, with an offer far over our asking price! He and his team member, Rob, helped us to decide on the right community for us to move to. Don knows what he's doing! He is professional, and is determined to do the best job he can for his clients. He's trustworthy, honest, and we felt completely confident in him. We highly recommend him in every way!"

"I would like to recommend Don Shaffer, and the team he has built, to anyone looking for a realtor in the Columbus area. They made the home selling experience easy from beginning to end, and always answered the phone when we had questions about the process. I look forward to using them again!"

"Mr. Shaffer and The Shaffer team are very wonderful to work with. When Mr. Shaffer came to our house for the first time, he was very pleasant, knowledgeable and has years of experience. We felt very informed and at ease he would definitely take care of us. That is exactly what he and the Shaffer Team did! Thank you for everything."

- Joe and Robyn G.
Don did an outstanding job helping us sell a home. He set the expectations and we’re able to exceed them with every turn. He is very tuned into the current market and knew exactly what we needed to do to get the most out of the home. This is our second time working with Don and I will continue to work with him on all my real estate transactions!

- Elizabeth B.

I can’t speak highly enough of Don Shaffer. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and hard work ethics are very much appreciated. He made would have been a very stressful time for us in selling our home into a very simple process. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to sell your home.

Don is really fantastic to work with. He had now sold 2 homes for us in the past 3 and a half years. This time around, he was able to get our home listed and in contract quickly. We closed about 2 months after listing. We moved out of state one month into the process and Don jumped in and helped us to coordinate remedies and made the final month go very smoothly. Don is an expert in real estate in Central Ohio. The best thing about him is that he stays involved with his clients after closing. We have reached out to him multiple times since he sold our first home; questions about who to use for glass replacement, plumbers, etc. He is always quick to respond and always has a recommendation. He has a wealth of knowledge that goes past closing. Thanks again Don!!

Don Sold our last home in one week for our asking price. He stayed in touch with us over an extended period of time while our new home was built and after several delays. He also sold both my daughter's homes just prior to us this last summer. He always has great enthusiasm and energy.

Don Shaffer has been my realtor since 2001. He and his team are the best! 
Don and his team are extremely professional, considerate and thorough. If you have used other realtors to sell a home with no results look no further... this team can get your home sold! Hands down! If I could give 10 stars, I would!
- Melissa M.-Feb 2020

Would give 10 stars if we could! Don and his team were professional, respectful and successful! Don sold our parent's home in 4 days. He made the process very easy and absolutely painless. He responded to every text, call and email we sent almost instantly and answered every question we had. We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their house or looking to buy a house. Don and his team were just wonderful.

I would like to highly recommend Mr. Don Shaffer as a top realtor. My wife and I obtained Mr. Shaffer's services because we were in a unique situation. We had to sell our house quickly, so that we could move back into our other house. We knew this would be a difficult task due to the economy. After careful consideration, we chose Mr. Shaffer. When I first spoke to Mr. Shaffer, he went over what our options would be due to our particular circumstances. I'm must say that the whole process can be a bit confusing and overwhelming but Mr. Shaffer put us at ease. He was very informative and had an answer to all of our questions. He made the process so simple for us. The house sold very quickly and all the paperwork was completed promptly with no problems. We feel that if it wasn't for Mr. Shaffer's expertise that our house would still be on the market and we would be in a very unfortunate situation. We thank him for all his hard work and efforts and would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about putting their home for sale.

- Scott W.

I recently sold my house; when I started, I didn't know where to begin. Driving home one day, I saw a HER sign that led me to Don Shaffer. Don and his team made the selling of my house flawless. He came in to my home and told me exactly what I needed to do to sell it and within days of placing my house on the market, I got an offer. I know everyone's experience will not be the same but Don and his team will make it happen for you. Mike from his team also guided me through building my very first home. I could not be happier. Thanks Don, Mike and team.

- Zena W.

My wife and I worked with Don Shaffer to short sale our home in Pickerington. Don is highly knowledgable of the area, and the overall process of how to get the best results in the right time frame. Don is highly professional and kept of informed during the entire process. I highly recommend Don as an agent.

- Tom & Kelly

I would like to take this opportunity to relay my recent experience with Don Shaffer and The staff at The Shaffer Team. As a homeowner forced into short sale in lieu of a divorce Don was very understanding, sympathetic and courteous toward my specific situation. Because I am a business owner who travels quite extensively I needed an agent I could trust that was up to speed on all aspects of the short sale process and one who was willing to work hard and in a timely manner......Don Shaffer IS that agent. A complete professional, Don always had MY best interest in mind. The staff at The Shaffer Team was always in direct communication with me as well, courteous, diligent and professional. In light of my specific circumstances, Don Shaffer and The Shaffer Team did it right.....always putting me first and staying in direct communication and on top of all things, at all times, every step of the way. I would strongly recommend Don Shaffer and The Shaffer Team to anyone with real estate needs, of any kind. They have proven that their knowledge and professionalism are top notch in the industry, and I look forward to working with them again in the near future...working towards a purchase.

My wife and I needed to sell a home that we owed way more on it than it was worth. We went over all of our options and decided that a short sale was our best choice in avoiding a costly foreclosure. We solicited the help of Don Shaffer and his firm to assist us because he has a proven track record of dealing with residential short sales. Don provided us with excellent professional real estate service and within a short time we had a buyer. Our first attempt to get approval from the bank failed but Don said to keep trying. There was a 2nd unsuccessful attempt but Don kept trying. Finally on the 3rd attempt, we received short sale approval, which saved us from taking a major hit to our credit. Because of the bank, the process took 7 months, but Don stuck with us the entire time. We highly recommend you consider Don Shaffer and his firm for all your real estate needs.

- Mark P.

Don Shaffer was our agent in our short sale and we were glad. He guided us through the short sale process which had mistakes made by our lender. His aggressive style and extensive experience are good match to go toe to toe with a big five lender who was less than cooperative and organized for the short sale process. The short sale was successful due to Don's short sale skills. Our advice for anybody completing short sale is to use Don Shaffer. He has been to the rodeo before and is not afraid of the bulls.

- Susan K.

I am so thankful that we were able to work with you and your team with both our homes. Working with Wendy on the new house was a great experience. She was always available to answer any questions we had and she made us feel like we were her only clients. Angie was awesome to work with as well. You have definitely exceeded your reputation. I couldn't have chosen a better team to represent me and my family. The level of personal care you all show is amazing. Everything you have done has been truly appreciated.

- Sarah and Brian

I was 100% satisfied with the handling of my house. I felt you were honest and upfront about the market including pricing of the house. I will definitely pass on a good word for you if I get the opportunity.

- Bonnie

It was a great experience, overall. We encountered several bumps along the way but we are very happy with where we ended up. Don answered any and all questions and concerns throughout the home buying/selling process.

- Andrew

The overall experience with The Shaffer Team was excellent. They are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

- Beth

Don and The Shaffer Team were very open, honest and told us how to prepare our home for the market. They are an excellent team, followed up on email and phone calls. We rate them a 10, 10 being the best. We think they all deserve thanks.

- Bobby & Betty

It was a pleasure working with your team. Ron and Angie were great! Couldn't ask for a better team. Thanks Again!

- Jennifer W.

I am happy to report that wendy Esker was very efficient and was so easy to work with during my purchase of the condo. Provided information and kept me up to date on all aspects of the transaction. Again, thanks to Wendy for a smooth closing which made things so easy for me.

- Gaynelle P.

Don is an amazing listing agent. He helped us through the entire process and answered any and all of our questions. We had to leave town before the closing occurred and he handled all the closing details on our behalf. I highly recommend Don and his great team! :)

- Scott & Janetta K.

Don is awesome; really chill guy and definitely knows his stuff! He was available to chat the same day I emailed him, came out within a few days to check out our house, and had it listed within a week. Thanks to his advice and expertise, it went into contract within 24 hours! We're moving to Florida and have already found a house there, so getting our house in contract so quickly has been a huge stress reliever.
Keela is very responsive and always ready to help with any additional questions! Really great team!

- Michelle M.

Our house sold for asking price within four days! It took us a little longer to find our dream home (from when we started looking to when we put and offer in was 5 months). Don personally went out of his way to work with us. Finally we found a house and placed an offer, only to find out there was another offer on that house. The reputation of the seller was that he was a difficult older guy. Whatever magic Don pulled worked for us. And we got our home; in perfect timing to welcome our baby two months later. We LOVE our home and couldn't be more happy!

- Brandon and Carly W.

Don, Wendy and Keela have been fabulous to work with! Don listed our house and it was in contract in 2 weeks! He was always quick to answer our questions, even on vacation! Wendy jumped right in and drove all over with us to find our new home. She was so patient and helpful. Keela has been such a help with all the details including scheduling different things and getting everything in order. The team was right there with us the whole time and made the process as smooth as it could have possibly been.

- Scott & Summer W.

Our home sale closed today. Bittersweet because we loved that house (but job requires a move) but a relief because our awesome realtor took away all stress in the process and ensured a smooth transition. We cannot say enough about Don and team. The utmost professionalism yet so down-to-earth. Felt like doing business with an old friend. Thank you so much, we so appreciate it!!!!
