    “I've heard for years that Effler Schmitt is the best realtor in Ohio and always puts his clients' needs first. My 2-year journey to find a new home and quick turnaround to sell my house proved them right. What truly sets David apart is his impressive knowledge of the local housing market. This greatly aided us in making informed decisions throughout our home buying/selling process. David is an excellent communicator, promptly addressing all our questions and concerns, which made the entire experience less stressful. If you're in need of a real estate professional who will truly have your best interests at heart, he is the one you can trust. We couldn't be happier with our experience, and we wholeheartedly endorse Effler Schmitt for your real estate needs. ”

    “Daniel Effler and the entire Effler Schmitt Co team was terrific to work with. I was beyond impressed with Daniel's wealth of knowledge of numerous west Toledo neighborhoods. I believe he steered me in the right direction when I had blinders on as a novice buyer, I felt he had my best interest in mind at all times. In the end we found the perfect house for me in a timely manner in a competitive buyers market. Without hesitation I would strongly recommend Daniel and the entire Effler Schmitt Co team.”

    - Chad H.

    “When we bought a house in Ottawa hills, the market was so competitive with only a few houses on the market. Katie had done an amazing job for us throughout the house hunting process with her expertise and knowledge about the town and her social networks. She listened to even small details of what we wanted and was not hesitant to research our specific needs. She is also transparent… very accessible and responds to our questions very quickly. We spent about a year to find our perfect home, and she was patient throughout this process. She is a professional communicator. She helped us a lot to make a competitive offer and communicated well with the seller side to figure out important conditions. Most importantly, she is an authentic and warm-hearted person. We are so thankful that we worked with her, and we highly recommend her!”

    “Dan Effler represented us as the purchasing and selling agent six years ago and represented us as the selling broker when we sold the house in May 2022. In the Toledo- Ottawa Hills area he’s your ‘go-to’ sales agent. He has decades of experience, knows the market, knows all the players and works hard to get the best deal. I highly recommend him and his group.”

    - Faith T.

    “Dan and his team did an outstanding job listing and selling our home as well as finding our new home. Effler Schmitt's knowledge of Ottawa Hills is unmatched. Dan saw us through the entire process and even put out a fire or two on closing day. Effler Schmitt was fantastic to work with and I highly recommend them.”

    - Aaron S.

    “Kelly and the team at Effler Schmitt Co. did a stellar job as our realtor last summer. From our initial decision to sell our home to the closing of our new home, the team made the entire process as simple as it can get. They were transparent throughout the entire process, and really looked out for our best interests. I’d recommend them to anyone trying to sell their home in Ottawa Hills, Old Orchard, and other surrounding parts of the metro Toledo area.”

    - Andrew B.

    “The Effler Schmitt team guided us through selling our house. They were fantastic to work with, very professional. Hands down the best in town.”

    - Daniel W.

    “We had the absolute best experience working with the Effler team for both the purchase and sale of our home!”

    - Laura R.

    “Beyond professional, personal, and honest! Agents know the area and history of properties available. Would highly recommend to anybody looking to buy or sell. There is a reason they have been around for over 100 years.”

    - Nick F.

    “Dan and Dave did a great job for us. Consider them as your 1st choice!”
