Cannot Say Enough Good Things About My Recent Transactions!

“Lauren Rau, realtor with Century-21 of The Gene Group, recently sold my house and I purchased a house through her. Lauren flawlessly guided me through both transactions. Lauren and her team from The Gene Group guided me through the best way to set-up (stage) my home and their professional photographer took beautiful pictures. My home sold almost immediately. Before I found my forever home, Lauren showed me a few potential homes. Her advice on taking my time and not rushing into a transaction saved me from buying the wrong house. When I did find the right house, she guided me through that process which led me into obtaining the bid for it. Through both transactions, Lauren was “always” available to speak to me. She would always answer my calls or texts immediately. She was always kind and patient with me. She gave me so much support and guidance and always kept me informed and updated. Lauren would let me know what was completed and what needed to be done next. I felt 100% in good hands with her. She was never pushy and her expert advise was always appreciated and very helpful. The Gene Group has a team of great employees that makes Century 21 a smooth-running real estate business. I cannot say enough good things about my recent transactions with Lauren and The Gene Group. Choose Lauren for your next real estate needs and I promise you will not be disappointed!”

I Cannot Say Enough Great Things!

“I cannot say enough great things about our realtor, Virginia Dybala. She was driven, honest, fierce, patient, hardworking, drop things in minute to show us a house, and I could go on. In the end, I’m glad that we chose her to help us. If you are in the market to buy a house, please consider reaching out to her. She will NOT let you down!! Thank you Virginia, for helping us with our new home.”

So Amazing In The Recent Sale Of My Home!

 -Jonathan Funk


Friendly and Professional!

“Everyone I interacted with was friendly and professional. Leslie Bennett helped me buy my home. She listened to my (often changing) criteria and gave me positive encouragement every step of the way. When I would get tunnel vision or hyper focused on something irrelevant or inconsequential, she would review my goals with me and get me back on track without making me feel bad about it. I relied on her insight and expertise to help me navigate the market, and trust her implicitly. I’ve been recommending her to friends and family since I started working with her, I’ll continue to recommend her and I plan to work with her in the future for any real estate needs. I tell everyone my agent is a unicorn! Engaging, caring, and warm yet possesses a wealth of knowledge, an unmatched work ethic, and an eye for detail. There is simply no one else I would want by my side during this massive step in life.”

Excellent Throughout The Entire Process!

“Kwana was excellent throughout the entire process. We were buying the house from overseas and she helped us through every step of the process. She made it clear that she was representing our interests and her top priority was that we were happy with the purchase. Kwana was assertive when she needed to be and was there to talk us through each process. She advised us on what amount to offer and fair values for the area. She really knows her stuff.”

 -William Clark 


Giving Us Confidence Each Step Of Buying A Home!

“Erin and their team were fantastic! Very easy to work with. They delt with our situation with ease, giving us confidence each step of buying a home. We could contact Erin at any time of day and she would respond. Was very knowledgeable with the market and what areas we should look at. I highly recommend.”

 -Collin Cutler


Their Level Of Responsiveness, Expertise, And Overall Flexibility Was 2nd To None!

 -Dane Harding


Went Above And Beyond!

 -Steven Stricklin


Guided Us Through The Listing, Sale And Closing In A Very Professional Manner!

 -Frank and Melissa Schacherer


Provided Many Additional Services That Ensured That Our House Was Viewed In The Most Positive Light, Which Resulted In A Very Quick Sell!

“This year, we ventured out into a very competitive housing market with the hopes of having an offer accepted on a home that our family could grow into. We decided to work with Britney Bennett at The Gene Group and it was one of the best decisions that we made! Britney was quick to respond to our (many) texts and ensured that we were always able to view the homes that we were interested in – sometimes on very short timelines. She was honest and very hardworking throughout the entire process! When it was time for us to sell our existing home, Britney provided many additional services that ensured that our house was viewed in the most positive light, which resulted in a very quick sell! I would not hesitate to work with Britney again in the future. She made a daunting housing market a little more bearable and it was a pleasure working with her!”

Caring, Friendly, Understanding, Professional, Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Organized, Timely And Just Flat Out Outstanding!

“The Gene Group is absolutely amazing. Caring, friendly, understanding, professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, organized, timely and just flat out outstanding. Every question was answered immediately. They researched issues if they couldn’t answer about a prospective property. They went out of their way to move our closing closer to my office because I had a work issue that day. There is just no way to thank them enough! The properties were always within our search range and requested dollar amount. If they didn’t work out for whatever reason, properties were immediately available for other options. Our agent, Jennifer Olekas, was so helpful through the process. Went out of her way many times. I was tasked with finding my Mom a condo in Ohio so she could move from Florida. That is never easy. Other than a facetime viewing of her new condo she didn’t get to see it until the day she closed! and she loved it. She totally trusted our agent! Just the best customer service I’ve ever experienced when trying to purchase a home! Thank you, Jennifer and the entire team at the Gene Group! You made our lives so much easier during a very difficult process!”

 -Emily Mcgowan


Goes Above And Beyond To Help You Achieve Your Real Estate Goals!

“We love Gene and his team. He’s been so good to us. He was helpful, patient, attentive, trustworthy…there’s not enough space to add it all… throughout the selling process. Gene goes above and beyond to help you achieve your real estate goals. He is so knowledgeable and is able to explain things in a way you understand. He’s so patient and doesn’t push you to do anything you don’t want to do and will guide you to make the best decisions for you and your family. Gene and his team are also really just good people who genuinely want you to be happy. Gene is not just an agent. He’s like family and treats you that way. We can’t thank you enough Gene Group!! We love you and wish we could bring you with us to Maine to help us here. You’re truly one of a kind! 
-Alana DaSilva-Demo





Could Not Have Had A Better Experience, In Fact We Have Never Had A Better One!

“My wife and I had a significant challenge. We were moving back to the states from Germany. We had never been to Ohio before and had been in Germany for 12 years. We desperately hoped to find someone that understood our situation and was willing to work with us remotely and was willing to get to know us and speak truth to our options. An answer to prayer, was Erin Kristbaum. She is patient, understanding, professional, businesslike with a gracious and warm personality. After an amazing cross-section of available homes and selective tours we were able to find the most wonderful home. We could not have had a better experience, in fact we have never had a better one.”

 -Rob Stecker

Nothing But Professionalism!

“Nothing but professionalism. My realtor Jennifer Olekas was amazing..super nice and knew her stuff. I also liked how they provide you with an interior designer to assist you with the best pictures for your house. The team was great and would definitely use Jennifer Olekas and team from the Gene Group again.”

 -Alicia Zirbs

Extremely Accommodating!

 -Zachary Morgan


So Professional!

“Najee Shine was so professional, understanding, and human. While going through the process I had a death in my family and needed to take a week to get affairs in order and prepare/attend a funeral. That meant so much to me, as a first time home buyer, the process is nerve wrecking, and add on grief of a lost sibling. Najee’s understanding on the situation showed me he was the correct realtor for me.”

 -Anthony Branch


Very Knowledgeable And Patient!

“Helped me find the house that best suited me. The housing market was very aggressive this year and finding a home was a chore. Houses were selling fast and many sold above listings. Met Danielle and she was a tremendous help. Very knowledgeable and patient. She walked me through all the processes and offered very valuable advice.”

 -B.J Gough


Made The Whole Process Such A Breeze!

“Joane Wire did a PHENONMENAL job helping me with the purchase of a new home. She made the whole process such a breeze!

 -Julie Beyer


Been Tremendous Throughout The Sales Process, Top-Notch!

“The service of the agent has been tremendous throughout the sales process, top-notch! She has helped us with the steps of the sales and covered the group well. She has helped us reach contractors and services as needed and we do not have to make blind phone calls. She has even gone the way to help us in getting the furniture set up for the viewing. There have been no misunderstandings in our communication with the busy agent and we are satisfied with the service. “smart, solid, solutions” is the right description.”

– Amanda Davidson 


The Whole Group Was Wonderful To Work With!

“The whole group was wonderful to work with. They worked hard for us to get us exactly what we wanted. From day one they researched for us and when we wanted to see a house they were able to get us in. During moving we were able to use their moving truck for free which was amazing! Our realtor negotiated and worked through some questions and road blocks to make our home selling and buying processes as smooth as could be.”
– Stacey Niebruegge


Absolutely Wonderful In Helping Us Find The Perfect Home For Our Family!  

“Kwana Jones-Becker was absolutely wonderful in helping us find the perfect home for our family! She really took into consideration all of our needs and wants in a home and selected the best houses for us to see. In the end, she found the best one! She was so patient and very responsive with us during the process. We are so appreciative of how hard she worked to do all of this and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house! Leiah and Jenni with The Gene Group were great to work with. They were very responsive, helpful, and communicated clearly in their emails.”

 -Erica Evers


Greatly Relieved The Stress Of Selling A Home. I HIGHLY Recommend This Group!  

“Great overall experience. We were first time home sellers, which was rather stressful for us. However, with the help of The Gene Group, they were able to assist us in anyway possible, which helped greatly relieved the stress of selling a home. I HIGHLY recommend this group.”

 -Richard Swain


Were Nothing Less Than Phenomenal. They Operated As A Well Oiled Machine!  

“Erin Kristbaum and the team at the Gene Group were nothing less than phenomenal. They operated as a well oiled machine. From day one they provided a superior experience. They had presentations, staging teams and points of contacts in the community to help expedite any issues we came across. Erin also continued to help us even after the sale was completed an we had moved from the area. I would highly recommend this group especially Erin Kristbaum for any real estate needs.”

 -Michael Shaw

 -Denise Alford


Beyond Helpful!  

“When my sons father passed away suddenly we were left with trying to fix and sell his home. It was in terrible condition and needed so much repair and updating that it felt overwhelming. Kylene was beyond helpful with setting me up with contractors to get the work done. Her constant help took so much burden from my shoulders”

 -Kelina Dayton


The Gene Group Provided Peace Of Mind Through Each Step Of The Journey!  

“The Gene Group exceeded our expectations not only in coordinating the search to find a new home, but also in providing the tools to stage and market our current home. As a result, within three days after listing, the “sale pending” sign was displayed in our yard. At the start, our realtor, Erin Kristbaum, intuitively realized the main challenge for us was finding a new home that would meet our requirements that were set quite high. It’s hard to believe, but the first home visited was a perfect match and a contract was skillfully written by Erin that was accepted over many others. Moving forward, the talented Gene Group Team provided a seamless coordination of staging, video and marketing so that our current home was highly desirable in the current competitive market. As mentioned earlier, it sold in 3 days. The buying and selling of a home can be quite a challenging process, but looking back ,The Gene Group provided “peace of mind” through each step of the journey. It is our privilege to recommend this group to others.”

 -Deborah Schlarb


Exactly What We Needed To Help Sell Our Home!  

“Erin at The Gene Group was exactly what we needed to help sell our home. The home had previously been on the market with no offers and hardly any viewings. We waited two years and tried again with Erin. She told us exactly what we needed to do to get it market ready, helped us to understand the cost efficiency of doing that work, got three estimates for every job, coordinated all the work (because we are out of state), and put out every “fire” that came up. We got three offers over our asking price the first day. Easiest home sale ever!”

 -Erika Schwartz


We Had A Fantastic Experience!

“We had a fantastic experience working with Kim McAndrew at The Gene Group! After finding out about a military move with little notice, Kim and her team were able to help us determine that selling our home was the best option for us, helped us stage our home, and had beautiful pictures taken in a timely manner. We ultimately had multiple excellent offers on our house within hours of listing! Kim also worked hard to accommodate the timeframe of our move out of state to aid us in a smooth transition out of Dayton. We’ll be recommending her to all others we know moving to or from the Dayton area!”
– Sydney Feibus

Went Above And Beyond To Make The Process As Quick And Streamlined As Possible!  

“Britney Bennett made my experience as a first time homebuyer so straightforward and stress free! She is responsive, professional, kind, and extremely hard working.

Almost two years later when I suddenly moved out of state, I had so much peace of mind with Britney helping me sell my first home from 2,000 miles away. She went above and beyond to make the process as quick and streamlined as possible. I would absolutely recommend Britney and the Gene Group to anyone looking to buy or sell!”

 -Laura Pegram


Did An Amazing Job!  

“The Gene Group was recommended by my sister-in-law. Because we were building out of the Cincinnati metro area we had two separate realtors. For the build in Warren County, we had Erin Kristbaum, She did an amazing job. She was always available by phone. Erin attended pre-build meetings, inspections, and the closing. She also constructive and reassuring advice. I highly recommend Erin.”

 -Richard and Kelly Paquette

Went Above And Beyond To Meet All Of Our Selling And Buying Needs!

“Selling and buying a home can be super stressful, but with Erin Kristbaum from The Gene Group it was not only easy, it was fun! Erin was consultative, transparent, responsive and went above and beyond to meet all of our selling and buying needs. She even hosted our open house and viewings while we were on vacation, ensuring that every detail was taken care of from start to finish. Even more, she always went out of her way to communicate with us. In short, I’d highly recommend Erin if you’re looking to sell or buy. She’s simply the best in the Dayton area.”
– Erin Putman

Was Amazing!  

“Lynsey was awesome!! She really was amazing for almost eighteen months until we finally found the right property! “

 -Bill and Annette Mangan 

Their Work Was Professional, Timely, And Supportive!  

“We would like to gives our sincere thanks to Kawna and all the Gene Group staff for their hard work in helping us find a home. Their work was professional, timely, and supportive. The very friendly staff made it a joy for us to work together. I will certainly recommend them to anyone I meet looking for a home.”

 -Steve and Vicky Wisecup

Had Many Resources To Help During The Buying Process!  

“I was a first-time home buyer and Kylene made the whole experience an awesome one! Kylene was very well informed on the property, had many resources to help during the buying process, answered any questions I had throughout the purchase, worked with the sellers to find a deal that suited both parties, and most of all was very responsive in her communications (text, call, and email). I highly recommend Kylene if you’re looking for a realtor that is very responsive, always open to questions, and will work non-stop to get you the home of your dreams! Thank you so much for helping me to obtain my dream home, Kylene!!!”

 -Mike Trombley

Outstanding Service From Start To Finish. A Stressful Time Made Stress Free By This Team!

 -Derek Zyma 

The Gene Group Has Been The Best Choice We Have Made!

“The Gene Group has been the best choice we have made when it comes to buying and selling our home. Adam has been available and professional throughout the entire process. He even showed us a home on New Years Day. I will recommend The Gene Group to anyone that is looking to buy or sell.”
– April Marshall

Authentic, Effective, And Exceptionally Responsive.  

“Erin Kristbaum is an authentic, effective, and exceptionally responsive agent who served as our buyer’s representative in Dayton, Ohio. I would characterize her as “Top of her Class” in real estate transactions knowledge, customer service, and professionalism. But her skills don’t stop there. Erin is an astute observer — not only of the possible pit-falls and concerns in a listed property, but also of the people with whom she’s working. We tried early on to provide a summary of our house preferences and she dutifully took them on board. But Erin clearly was noting our reactions and body language when we looked at (and discussed) every property. She also knew which properties might not be quite right for us based on the dialogue my wife and I were sharing privately, but in Erin’s company. Erin shared her insights at just the right moments and thoughtfully noted how and where our preferences were evolving. When it came time to discuss our purchase offer, Erin skillfully researched the market as any good agent would, but she went above-and-beyond with some additional market science and helped us map out brilliant negotiating milestones, which may be the area where she excels. Impeccable integrity and hard working, Erin Kristbaum is one of those real estate professionals who probably should be training other agents. If we decide to buy another property in the Dayton, Ohio area, we won’t rely on search engines or other peoples’ recommendations; we’ll probably just find Erin Kristbaum and say, “Erin, we’d like your help.” My wife and I believe we could not have done any better when we entrusted you to help us find a place to call home after being stationed overseas for more than 16 consecutive years. When a rare bottle of wine shows up on your desk some day in the near future, you’ll know who it’s from. Enjoy it in the knowledge that you deserve every drop of it!”

 -Michael Tedesco

Was Able To Overcome An Obstacle With Low Stress To Me! 

“Kylene is awesome! We called on Christmas Eve thinking we would just chat after the holidays, but instead she called back and was more than happy to answer all of our questions. Through the process she was always available. She made the purchase super easy. She is very personable and we were happy to work with her. She is extremely competent and was able to overcome an obstacle with low stress to me!”

 -Keli Ann

Our Experience With The Gene Group Was Nothing But Professional And Helpful!

Our experience with The Gene Group was nothing but professional and helpful. We were selling a pretty unique property, but with the help and expertise of our realtor we got the right buyer and we couldn’t have done it without her. I would highly recommend The Gene Group to those looking to buy or sell.”
– Jacklyn Taylor

From Start To Finish The Gene Group Was Wonderful.  

“From start to finish The Gene Group was wonderful. Gene was very responsive, kind, and professional. He followed up on any and all concerns and was our advocate throughout the process. We would highly recommend The Gene Group to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home!”

 -The Nieves

Simply The Best! Went Above And Beyond In Searching Out Houses.  

“Being a new home buyer seeking to relocate to Dayton, Ohio, appeared as a very daunting proposition when I started looking for a real estate agent. Being unfamiliar with Dayton and its surrounding areas, it had to be someone with scads of patience to put up with all my many questions regarding both finding a home to meet my requirements AND regarding the whole process. My real estate agent Beth App, with The Gene Group, was simply THE BEST! She went way above and beyond in searching out houses she believed would be a good fit. She never lost her patience, has a great sense of humor, and always got back to me in a very timely manner. Without any reservations whatsoever, I would recommend her to anyone at any time, anywhere. Thank you Beth!!!”

 -Joan Barber

I’m A First Time Home Buyer And I Could Not Have Done It Without My Agent! 

“I’m a first time home buyer and I could not have done it without my agent Olivia. She knew everything that was going on with the houses I looked at. She listened to my needs and wants and found houses to look at that didn’t waste my time, which I appreciated. She showed me the perfect house and we both knew immediately that it was the one. The house buying process can be dizzying at times, but my agent kept me informed and I had full faith that she was a seasoned veteran and knew what she was doing was in my best interest.”

 -Shauna Sottoway and Logan Perkins


Prompt, Diligent, And Thorough In Their Approach!


“We have used Gene and the Gene Group for over ten years. Each experience has been outstanding. The Gene Group has helped us purchase and sell confidently and intelligently. Gene and his team are prompt, diligent, and thorough in their approach. The Gene Group has allowed us to be competitive for over a decade. As our family has grown, Gene and his team have risen to the challenge of finding our perfect fit. We recommend the Gene Group to those looking for honest, reliable, and confident realtors.

 – The Crawfords


Providing Excellent Advice And Guidance Through The House Sale Process! 

“Jennifer Danishek and The Gene Group were nothing short of amazing. I was selling my father’s home (the house I grew up in) from out of state. Jennifer was the most kind and understanding, while providing excellent advice and guidance through the house sale process. I could not have asked for a better Realtor! I recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone”

 -Mike Dichiaro

Made The Process Meaningful And Smooth! 

“To whomever is looking for a home:

A little over a year ago, I reached out to Sarah about buying a house. Being new to Ohio, I didn’t know the specifics of the different areas to buy in. However, Sarah went out of her way to make me feel like I was apart of her family; that made the process meaningful and smooth. Even with the craziness I had going on in my life at the time, Sarah made herself available all times of day and night with my crazy work schedule. In fact, she went out of her way to come by job to help me close out some due outs prior to the closing. I must say after reaching out to Sarah in July and being able to close on my house with keys in hand by the end of August 2020 was an amazing stress reduced experience. Thank you Sarah. You are truly amazing.”

 -Tim Jones

Phenomenal Communication From All Points Of Contacts Within The Realty Company! 

“We met Kylene at an open house for the house we were interested in. Instantly we knew she would be a good fit for our needs. Kylene was prompt and upfront about everything that we needed to do on our end and supported us through the buying and selling process. We would recommend her over and over again to anyone looking to buy or sell! Phenomenal agent and phenomenal communication from all points of contact within the realty company! Thank you all so much for making our dream home a reality!! “

 -The Dennisons

The Gene Group Offered A Level Of Service That We Hadn’t Experienced Before! 

“The Gene Group offered a level of service that we hadn’t experienced before from listing to sale. The virtual staging was exceptional and the photos showed the home in the best light. Kwana was fantastic with her attention to detail and personal attention. Once the listing went live, we had showings the very same night thanks to her network and marketing. We were very pleased with the whole experience and would highly recommend The Gene Group to anyone who asks!”

 -Ruchi Shah

They Were So Helpful, As First Time Home Buyers During A Pandemic! 

Working with the Gene Group and Lyndsey was fantastic. They were so helpful, as first time home buyers during a pandemic and a fast moving market we didn’t know what to expect. Any questions we had were answered quickly and Lyndsey was so quick to respond to any inquiries. She went above and  beyond in every way and we are so happy with our new home!

 -Alexandria Kragt

The Gene Group Was There With Me Every Step Of The Way

I found a house that I was interested in, so I emailed the realtor, Lyndsey to ask about it. I received an almost immediate response. She got the information of what I was looking for, and sent some homes that fit. When we found that perfect house, Lyndsey and The Gene Group was there with me  every step of the way. The communication was amazing from everyone there, and I was at ease every step of the way. They took the time to explain things we didn’t understand and helped us every step of the way. An amazing group of people to work with!

 -Lynn McCabe

I Have Nothing But Good Things To Say About My Experience! 

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with the Gene Group and Erin Kristbaum.

 -Valerie White

 -Thomas Cunningham 

Pleasant And Always Helpful! 

Our agent was always willing to drop what she was doing to set up a time for us to look at houses. Our agent constantly went out of her way to schedule everything around us. Our agent was pleasant and always helpful. The process on The Gene Groups end was smooth and we were so excited about our new  home! We will be recommending The Gene Group to all of our friends and family!

 -Ashley Wetzel 

Extremely Knowledgable And Pointed Out Things To Look For In A Home! 

Leslie Bennett is truly one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and she pointed out things to look for in a home that we would never have thought of. She would tell us her opinions, and guided us in the right direction. She took as  much stress out of a very stressful process as she possibly could for us. You can truly see the love and passion she has in her career and for the people she helps. We looked at around 6 or so homes before we put in an offer. On a multiple offer listing, she made sure we came out on top to get our offer accepted. During negotiations, she kept us updated and worked tirelessly to make sure we got what we needed. I could go on forever about how amazing Leslie is at what she does and how much she cares about her clients. My recommendation for Leslie and The Gene Group could not be any stronger. If we ever look to buy or sell our home in the future, I’ll be coming back to Leslie!

 -Brittany McClain

The Entire Gene Group Made You feel Appreciated, Which Isn’t Exactly Standard When You’re The Client

Our agent from The Gene Group was referred to me by a close friend. We are so happy we took their advice and jumped in with Our agent. Her patience and descriptive answers to all our never ending questions was much appreciated. The entire Gene Group made you feel appreciated, which isn’t exactly  standard when you’re the client. I’ll only ever do business with Our agent and The Gene Group.

 -Jennifer Milas

Went Over The Top To Make Our Unfinished Home Get The Best Price Possible! 

“Erin went over the top to make our unfinished home get the best price possible. So much so we got above asking offers! Thanks Erin and all your support at the Gene Group.”

 -Paul Sinopoli

Walked Us Through The Entire Process, Made Sure We Fully Understood Every Scenario

Leslie was the best agent we have ever had! She walked us through the entire process, made sure we fully understood every scenario we could’ve been and made us feel comfortable the entire time. She dealt with all of our emotions, was available to us anytime we needed and made us feel like we were  her only clients (even though we are FAR from it) we would’ve never known she had so many other people she was working with! We hardly felt the stress of buying and selling at the same time and that was all because of Leslie and the Gene groups full service model. In addition to our realtor and the staging service, we also were able to have the luxury of using the Gene Group moving truck which was an awesome bonus and got rid of the stress of having to rent a moving truck. If we ever buy again, investment property, vacation home, anything we will start with Leslie and the Gene group first!

If You Are Looking To Buy Or Sell Your Home, You Need The Gene Group On Your Side

If you are looking to buy or sell your home, you need The Gene Group on your side. We were always one of the first to see homes as they entered the market which led to a perfect home. They did an amazing job staging our home and ensuring it sold quickly for above asking! They do a great job of  helping you get what you want, and keeping it simple for you as a buyer and seller. They give great advice, have amazing knowledge of the market, and I wouldn’t consider another realtor/agency for any future purchase. Highly recommend The Gene Group


Attentive And Helpful Through The Whole Process! 

Kwana was a great person to work with! While we were a complicated case, she was attentive and helpful through the whole process of both selling our house and finding a beautiful new one. We also really enjoyed the Gene Group staff in helping us to prep our house for sale, which resulted in us  being able to have multiple offers the same day our old house went on the market! We highly recommend The Gene Group, and Kwana Jones-Becker!!

Made The Process Of Finding The Right House Simple And Stress-Free! 

Having Leslie B. as our buyer agent was a pleasant experience and made the process of finding the right house simple and stress-free. There is no question that Leslie was easy to work with and responsive to all of our requests and questions. We were very pleased that she was always ready to answer  our questions no matter the time, whether it was during the weekdays or weekends, day or night. Additionally, she was willing to go above and beyond showing us different houses and new constructions regardless of the long distances (Big thanks to Anthony for driving her a couple of times to the Cincinnati areas). She gave her honest opinions about the house and neighborhood when asked. She didn’t just try to sell us a home but was genuinely helping us to find a home that met our needs. As a matter of fact, we changed our home search criteria multiple times, but she always had a good attitude and continued to work well with us. We strongly recommend Leslie to anyone with real estate needs. Furthermore, we would like to shout out and thank The Gene Group’s staff who was behind the scenes taking care of the smooth buying and closing transactions. Thank you all!

 –The Do’s Family

Available To Answer Any Of Our Questions And To Offer Expert Advice

Olivia is the best real estate agent ever! She is always available to answer any of our questions and to offer expert advice and insight on our home buying experience. We looked at dozens of homes over several weeks and Olivia never once pressured us to buy one. She was very patient and down to earth. Thank you for everything!

 -Craig Kavanagh


Everyone Who We Came In Contact With Was Beyond Helpful!

Our agent helped us sell our house in under one day after multiple offers. Our agent was knowledgeable about the current market, quick to respond to our endless questions, and was an overall pleasure to work with. In addition, she helped us with the purchase of our new home in the ever changing/competitive market we are in today. We also had a great experience with the office staff at the Gene Group! Everyone who we came in contact with was beyond helpful! We recommend the Gene Group to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase a home. 

 – Sara McGarvey

Associates At The Gene Group Handled Everything With Professionalism! 

Everyone at The Gene Group was super helpful from listing and selling through the purchase of our dream home! There were lots of challenges due to COVID but the associates at the Gene Group handled everything with professionalism. After accepting an offer on our home we began to get frustrated in  our search for a new home. We were shown all the houses we wished to look at but were encouraged to look at others we had not requested. We are so glad our agent took us to look at other homes; we ended up completely surprised by one of the showings and we are now in our Forever Home!! We couldn’t be happier!! Plus, we were able to use the moving truck which helped save money on moving expenses.

 – Shannon Jones

Our Experience With The Gene Group Was Very Positive! 

Over the years, we’ve bought and sold many times and had a number of different experiences. Our experience with the Gene Group was very positive. The video, in particular, was fantastic with many comments from our friends on how well it was done. Our realtor, Jennifer Danishek, was very  professional and helpful in taking us through the process. This was especially challenging given the demands associated with the pandemic. Overall, we were most pleased with being represented by Jennifer and The Gene Group.

 – Gary Steins

Has Been Awesome To Work With! 

Kylene Hussong has been awesome to work with. She showed me many houses and was very patient with me. I gave her my wish list of what I wanted in my new home. And she found that home. In fact I moved in today and I am so excited and love this home so much. She knew exactly what I wanted and she  found that for me. She has been as excited as I have been about this new move. I would recommend her and as well as the gene group for any real estate needs.

 – Catherine Burton

Went Above And Beyond To Make The Process As Smooth As Possible! 

The Gene Group was a no brainer, and Britney was great! We were in a unique situation trying to sell our home while buying a new home, but with VA Loans that meant closing on the selling home first. We were nervous that we’d end up homeless for a few weeks but Britney negotiated both our contracts  to make it an easy closing, move, and overall process! She was constantly keeping us informed throughout the process even when she was out of town. Britney & the entire Gene Group went above and beyond to make the process as smooth as possible.

 – Claudia

Even During A Global Pandemic, The Agents And Their Associates Were Able To Secure Everything Required To Purchase! 

Even during a Global Pandemic, the Agents and their associates were able to help secure everything required to purchase an amazing home. Between viewing homes through video chats, to helping negotiate additional time during the buying process. I worked as closely as possible with two Realestate  Agents during the whole process, and even several months later have remained in contact. They have been integral for creating a smooth transition while I move between, not two different cities or states, but two different countries separated by an ocean!

 – Nick Taggart

Very Professional And Helpful In Finding Our Forever Home! 

The Gene Group, and Olivia in particular, were very professional and helpful in finding our forever home and navigating the home buying process. Olivia was very patient as we were very specific in what we wanted to allow room for our family to grow, and found us several houses with a wide range of  options to look at, in what was a limited market at the time.

 – William Gruner

Most Professional, Responsive, And Courteous Real Estate Team We Have Worked With!

As First Time Home Buyers We Could Not Have Asked For A Better Experience!


Working with Kim McAndrew & The Gene Group team was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Kim was so responsive during the process of searching, answering questions any day of the week and making herself available if something popped up that was sure to go quick. As first-time home buyers  we could not have asked for a better experience. Once we found a house and began working with the rest of The Gene Group team we experienced the same professionalism, responsiveness, and overall helpfulness we experienced with Kim. We would recommend Kim and The Gene Group to anyone looking for a realtor in the Dayton area!

It was my first time buying a house. I was new to the area and had no idea where to begin. Britney provided a ton of insight into the areas she thought would be best for me.

I Am So Thankful For This Agency!

This was my husband and I first time purchasing a home. I told a friend of mine I was looking and she reccomend a wonderful realtor named Leslie Bennett. It was my first time hearing about The Gene Group and I am so thankful for this agency. Leslie made us feel 100% at ease with the entire process. I had many questions being a first time home user and she never made me feel like I was stupid for asking. We loved working with her and even created a friendship from the experience. I have recommended Leslie to a few of my friends who are now buying their first homes thanks to The Gene Group. Thank you so much, my husband and I could not be happier in our new home!

 -Kristyn Bridges 


The Gene Group Walked Us Through Every Step Of The Way! 

“Olivia Nicodemus was our realtor and was fantastic. She was very responsive to our questions and concerns with buying and selling a house and would ease our anxieties and worries.  Olivia is very knowledgeable in the business and the area we were looking in.  She is so nice and sweet and made us very comfortable.  We HIGHLY recommend Olivia Nicodemus as your next realtor.

The Gene Group was outstanding as well when it came time to get our house ready to sell.  Being our first time selling a home, The Gene Group walked us through every step of the way.  They made our house look great by staging it well and providing a professional photographer to take some awesome quality photos.
Our house was pending in 5 days from when it listed.  We had an overall fantastic experience with The Gene Group and Olivia.”

 -Michele Grogean

We Couldn’t Have Asked For A Better Team To Have In Our Corner 

I highly recommend The Gene Group. From setting pricing to staging, listing, showing, and negotiating a contract, the Gene Group team made the process smooth and easy for us.

 -Sarah Steele

Very Impressed With The Professionalism Of This Company

I was very impressed with the professionalism of this company. My agent, Brittney Bennett, worked diligently to complete the purchase of my new house.

I would highly recommend The Gene Group and Brittney Bennett.

 -Jane Smith

Erin And The Gene Group Team Are Truly Remarkable!

“We are not new to selling or buying homes, but selling with Erin Kristbaum and the Gene group team was an entirely new experience. Her regard for us and the real estate profession in general permeates every single decision, communication, and strategy. Erin led us through the process by simultaneously applying her practical and logical expertise and moral obligation to us as the sellers. Our enduring trust in her was a result in her adeptness to effortlessly straddle both knowledge and ethics. Erin and the Gene group team are truly remarkable.

And, if you aren’t already convinced, I am sure this will do it. We were under contract in 48 hours at over asking price. Sell or buy with the Erin Kristbaum and the Gene Group.”

 -Catherine Bornhorst

Listened To Our Needs, And Found Just What We Wanted!

Our agent worked so hard to find us our perfect home. Our agent listened to our needs, and found just what we wanted. It was like we were working with a friend we had always known. We would have never found our home without Our agents help. Our agent even changed their personal schedule to show us a house, that we now call home.

 -Richard and Michelle  Keggans


The Gene Group Set Themselves Apart By Keeping Communication Flowing!

Communication was key! Gene Pridgett and everyone at the Gene Group set themselves apart by keeping communication flowing during the entire home buying/selling process. We ran into a time crunch with both of our closings and Gene and his team kept us apprised of every development along the way! We  bought and sold our house with them and would never think of working with anyone else!

 -Jake and Krysta Stefanow


Very Responsive!

“Our agent was Britney Bennett. She was great. Very responsive (usually within minutes). Held Open Houses often, met with multiple vendors, in fact, she coordinated with vendors while we were out of town. Also did a good job negotiating.”

The Gene Group Have Exceeded My Expectations Beyond My Wildest Dreams!

The 3 different times I have sold or bought a home with the Gene Group they have exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams. Gene is so incredibly knowledgeable and truth be told I challenged him with so many questions and he was always quick to respond and so thorough and knowledgeable with  his answers. I would literally never choose another realty firm. From the top down every facet of the Gene Group is amazing at handling the task and operations assigned to them. Can’t say enough about this team of people!

 -Christopher and Jessica McIntosh

Made The Transaction And The Ease Of Purchasing Very Comfortable!

“As I began searching for a house I knew that Kwana was in the real estate business and let’s just say that it was the best decision ever.  Kwana was able to create a profile of what I had to have and things I would like to have.

This allowed me to look at some houses on my own. We found a few houses to look at and she was available at the drop of a hat. She would always change her schedule around due to my availability and that means a lot when your a single mom trying to get everything done.
The first house was amazing but I wasn’t quite ready to make an offer as I wanted to keep looking. Best decision ever as I found a house I knew was “the house” and I really really wanted to look at. One dilemma, Kwana was out however as any good realtor does she found me one of her associates to help out. Things at first didn’t happen due to the seller accepting another offer but it came back up for me to look at and Kwana would be back and ironically or schedules actually coordinated and I was able to see the house.  Fast forward three months and I am now a first time home buyer with the house I really wanted.  Kwana went above and beyond to ensure that I was happy, answered a lot of questions and I mean a lot. She ensured that if she didn’t know she found out.  Even after purchasing the house, Kwana has reached out to me personally to ensure that I am still happy!!! Kwana made the transaction and the ease of purchasing very comfortable and for that I am forever grateful.”

 -Janie Montague

Helped The Process Go Smooth!

“I had the pleasure of working with the Lyndsey Jones, and she was a pleasure. Always was there for me when I called and asked silly questions.. She helped the process go smooth.. I got the house that I wanted and love. Thank you to the Gene group an Lyndsey too..

 -Delores Gibson

They Made The Entire Process Stressless And Easy!

Olivia Nicodemus and the Gene Group were amazing. They made the entire process stressless and easy. From the moment Olivia scheduled the visit to see my home, to the offer and counter offer process, through knowing the perfect mortgage broker, she knew exactly what needed to be done and what I needed  to hear and know. Wonderful experience!

 -Lorie Risner

Kept In Touch With Me Through Everything!

I met Britney Bennett by chance when her husband came to give me a quote for interior painting. I was getting ready to list my condo for sale and had not chosen a realtor yet. Her husband happened to mention that his wife was a realtor and the rest is history. Britney was fantastic. She gave me wonderful feedback and suggestions. I was relocating out of state before listing my unit and Britney stepped up and handled so much for me. She met service providers for me and kept in touch with me through everything. I can’t say enough about how helpful she was and what a truly wonderful person she is. I would definitely recommend her for her knowledge, her personality and how trustworthy she is

 -Susan Brown

As First-Time Home Buyers, I Don’t Think We Could Have Gotten Any Luckier!

 -Kelsey Pearsall


Was In Constant Contact With Me As We Discussed Homes!

I met Adam O’Brien with The Gene Group after visiting a listing I found on Zillow. Adam realized that the home we visited wasn’t what I was looking for and after chatting for a while following that walk-thru, he offered to help me in my home hunting journey. Adam set me up with numerous  walk-thrus and was in constant contact with me as we discussed homes and the overall buying process. He helped me find a home inspector, a loan company – basically anything that I needed to buy my home. Adam and The Gene Group will be my first call when I choose to buy or sell again!

 -Mike Treon

So Accommodating And More Importantly Honest!

“There are not enough good things to say about Leslie. First and foremost she is extremely client oriented and upfront about home shopping. We never once felt pressured to buy anything we were shown and Leslie was more than willing to show us any property at any time that fit our schedule. She was so accommodating and more importantly honest about the condition that a home was in when we were looking around. That only helped reinforce the fact that she truly cared about the investment we were making. She was able to instantly spot anything wrong with the homes and let us know what we were getting ourselves into. It’s not just about a sale with her, it’s about ensuring we got exactly what we wanted- our perfect home. She really knows what she is doing and you can tell she is in her comfort zone talking about the properties. Overall, it was nothing short of an amazing experience. We were so glad we were able to have Leslie and The Gene Group in our corner. We have recommended Leslie to everyone we know who is buying a house!

I highly recommend the Gene group. Excellent on all levels.

Kind Hearted, Fierce & Loyal Realtor !

Britney Bennett at The Gene Group was great! We were first time home buyers so as you can imagine there were a lot of questions and Britney answered all of them quickly and accurately! She would promptly drop her daily plans to show us houses and did whatever she could to make our experience easy! She listened to all of our wants and needs taking everything into account, she also provided resources for us to help our search and research possible neighborhoods. Through this experience, Britney has proven to be a kind hearted, fierce & loyal realtor! She will go above and beyond and I would recommend her to everyone!

 -Kaitlyn Kirk

They Have Top Of The Line Processes And Technology !

Every aspect of the process was exactly what we wanted and expected AND THEN SOME. We have purchased many homes in the past and this was by far the best. Even better was the experience as being sellers – they have top of the line processes and technology, not to mention the professional staging and photography – both made such a difference. The dedicated administrative staff for all the behind the scenes work helped to ensure everything went smoothly and efficiently. Most importantly, our realtor was so accessible and knowledgeable, understood how we wanted proceed (especially the sale of our home) and made it happen with real time market knowledge and analysis. Never even got to have an open house due to having multiple offers within the first couple days being listed. We will be using their services for the sale both my elderly parents homes. I can’t say enough positive things except that I would have no hesitation in recommending, without hesitation to all my family, friends and coworkers. Keep up the outstanding work!

 -Dane Zimmerman

Very Knowledgeable And Professional !

The Most Professional And Responsive Team!

My wife and I have purchased and sold three homes (Louisiana, Texas, and Ohio) prior to working with the Gene Group.  We both agree that Gene and team are, by far, the most professional and responsive team we have had the pleasure to have on our side through the selling process.  What stood out was the up-front, honest, and realistic expectations expressed prior to signing with them.  Additionally, like most stressful home sales, unexpected twists and turns found their way into the process.  Gene, with his team, were proactive in both taking charge of the situation and communicating with us the challenge and path forward. From start to finish, I felt that Gene was there for us, well prepared, and ready to take on any challenge. We very much recommend The Gene Group!

The Gene Group Did Amazing!

The Gene Group did amazing in helping us find and then close on our new home. Our realtor was able to get our house sold and find us a house we wanted in the neighborhood we wanted when we didn’t think it would be possible. We saw the house the first day it came on the market and the house was ours the next day. The whole process was seamless and anything we needed the Gene Group was quick to respond. We will use them in the future and tell others to go see Our agent and the Gene Group.

I Would Highly Recommend The Gene Group!

We just bought our third house with The Gene Group. We worked in particular with Tammy Mercado. I have never been so impressed! We were buying a house in OH while living in another state, and never once did Tammy hesitate to help us in any and every way possible. Tammy went to numerous houses and did video tape walk throughs of the homes. The videos were very well done, detailed, informative, and were essential to finding our new home. Tammy was always easy to reach, whether by phone, text, or email. She provided us a list of restaurants and things to do in the area where we were looking to buy. Very helpful! Our closing process went easily. I would highly recommend The Gene Group!

 -Samantha Benasutti 


Landed Us Our Dream Home!

I have known Our agent, of the Gene Group, for years. I chose Our agent to be our realtor because I know what an honest, caring, and trustworthy person she is. Not to mention SMART and spectacular at what she does. Our agent is always available for us, has great connections (contractors, stagers, photographers, brokers, etc), she has had wonderful mentors, and has made our selling and buying experience virtually stress free. She landed us our dream home by knowing the market well and having superior advice on tailoring our offer to fit the market demands. She’s super fun, high energy, and just an all around great person. We love her and recommend her to everyone!

– Jessica Ashley




I Could Not Be Happier With The Experience!

I was looking for my first home and I did not have a realtor. I found Our agent online with The Gene Group and I could not have been happier. Nicole was so easy to work with and very helpful. This was my first home and I did not know a lot but Our agent was there to answer any questions I had at anytime (she even texted me back when she was on vacation). I could not be happier with the experience I had with Nicole and The Gene Group. I still keep in touch with Our agent! 

 – Paula Grodner

We Had A Great Experience With The Gene Group!

We had a great experience with the Gene Group! Our realtor, Leslie, was very accommodating, knowledgable and always available. She really listened to us and understood every aspect of what we were looking for in a new home. As first-time homeowners, we had a lot of questions and she made the buying process very enjoyable. We highly recommend her and have already passed along her information to friends and family. 

 – Trevin Fondriest

We Had A Great Experience Buying Our Home With The Help Of The Gene Group!

We had a great experience buying our home with the help of The Gene Group and our Realtor. Jonathan and I had no experience with the home buying process and she walked us through everything, and was very informative and unbiased. We had trouble with several buyers being unreasonable and Our agent handled it very well and kept us calm. The type of house we wanted was a bit unique, but she showed us many options. We felt we were in very capable and helpful hands. I would highly recommend Nicole and the Gene Group to anyone needing a realtor, and often do. 

 – Rebekah Bischoff

Helped Us Find Exactly What We Were Looking For!

“Olivia Nicodemus was wonderful to work with. She was patient and knowledgeable and helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a home. I would highly recommend Olivia and the Gene Group to anyone looking for their dream home! 

 – Bronwen 

We Could Not Have Been Happier!

“Kylene listed our home and we had our closing in just over a month. It was listed right before Christmas and we had four offers within a week. Kylene, and the Gene Group team, never missed a beat even though it was right in the middle of the holidays. We were thrilled, especially since we live in Florida and it was handled remotely. She was immediately responsive to every call, e-mail, and text. She met inspectors and contractors when they went to the house and on several occasions she stayed while they completed their jobs. We have bought and sold 6 homes during our marriage and we could not have been happier with Kylene’s friendly demeanor, helpful advice, responsiveness, and professionalism. We highly recommend her and would use her again without hesitation. 

 – Jeffrey Perkins

Very Pleased With Overall Experience!

“Very pleased with overall experience. Kylene Hussong did an outstanding job from beginning to end of the process in the sale of our house. Listed and closed within 45 days 

 – Larry Owens

Sold In A Few Days With The Gene Groups Strategy!

When deciding to put our home up for sale we were in the dark on who to list our home with. I saw that a family friend had their home listed with the Gene Group and decided to check into them and request more information. What happened next is what made them so amazing to work with. Within a few minutes of requesting information, I received a phone call from Erin Kristbaum and that was the best thing to happen to us during the selling/buying process. She put our every need, want, our nervousness at ease very quickly. We were in contact nearly everyday whether it was her sending me listings or talking about what we need to do to get the house ready, it was truly amazing to have someone in your corner that really has your best interest in mind throughout the process. Once the house finally hit the market, it was sold in a few days with the Gene Groups strategy for selling homes at full asking price plus closing paid for. When the journey started we were fearful and uneasy about the unknown but Erin went above and beyond to sell and help us find our new home and if given the chance to do it again there is no one else we would call!!!

 -The Grays


I Highly Recommend Them. My Wife And I Just Can’t Say Enough Good Things About The Experience!

“Our agent Olivia with The Gene Group worked her butt off to find us the right house to fit our budget. She prepared us as to the market, what to look for and she has many resources that helped us during and after purchasing. In the negotiations we were able to get a new roof put on the house along with new heating and air. The house inspector she got for us was awesome. He schooled me really quickly on things I would have overlooked. Saved us from possibly making a poor purchase at one time. Well worth money spent. You need The Gene Group and Olivia on your side either selling or purchasing a home. I highly recommend them. My wife and I just can’t say enough good things about the experience we had. Even after the purchase we received a Christmas card from them. They stay updated on your satisfaction and if there was anything they could do for us. Just don’t get service like this much any more. 

 – David Tock

Diligent About Getting Everything Completed In A Very Timely Manner!

“Olivia Nicodemus is an outstanding reality agent! She had me in the home of my dreams in no time at all. She was diligent about getting everything completed in a very timely manner. She was also super friendly and knew her job very well. 

 – Amy Howard

They Answer Any Questions You Have And Work Hard To Help You Get Your Dream Home!

 -The Higgins



The Gene Group Went Above And Beyond!

Tammy and The Gene Group did an amazing job helping me find the perfect Property. Not only did Tammy set me with automatic updates on new listings, she took the time to answer my questions no matter how small. Tammy gave me some great advise but truly listened to my wish list. One thing that also stood out was how prompt Tammy was when it came to showing me a home. I would text her a house I was interested in and in moments she had responded with a time to view it. I have had experiences in the past where I felt like I was more of a burden than anything but The Gene Group went above and beyond anything I could have expected. Thank you very much for everything!!

 -Aaron Couch 


The Whole Group Was There For Us!

Our realtor Jennifer didn’t rest until we found ‘the one’. She set up 15 showings on one day alone! She gave us her professional opinion, and gave pros and cons to each house, which really opened our eyes to things we hadn’t noticed. She was amazing! So professional, and made the whole buying experience wonderful, which we had never experienced before! The whole group was there for us. 

 – Andrea Miller

Very Knowledgeable On All Aspects Of The Process!

Our agent is a fantastic agent! I couldn’t ask for a better person to help me with purchasing my first home. Our agent is VERY knowledgeable on all aspects of the process which was invaluable to me. Our agent was patient, responsive, and super accommodating to our work schedules. I highly recommend Our agent if you’re looking to buy a home! 

 – Matthew Pedroza

I Would 100% Recommend The Gene Group!

“Heather was absolutely incredible. My home search was really long, sometimes frustrating and difficult, but Heather made it 100% worthwhile. I would 100% recommend the Gene Group. Everyone there was really kind and helpful and made my home buying process as stress-free as possible.

 -Sean McCarthy


I Had An Amazing Experience With The Gene Group!

“I had an amazing experience with The Gene Group. My agent, Leslie, is honest, caring, and the best at what she does. She helped me a lot in the process of buying my first house and I would not have been able to do it without her. I couldn’t have asked for a better agent.

 -Abtin Jalaee

 -Zofeen Khan


I Highly Recommend The Gene Group!

I highly recommend the Gene Group. Our agent was amazing. I had so many issues with my house that I didn’t know about and had to do so much but she stuck by me and helped me every step of the way. Our agent was very good at letting me know the ins and outs of what was going on and always kept in touch with me. My house was definitely a challenge and one she will never forget! But she is amazing and so is the group. 

 – Sommer Riethmaier

Seamless Experience For Us With A Very Happy Ending!

If you are looking to buy (or sell) we highly recommend The Gene Group. Our agent, Leslie Bennett, was amazing! Leslie is professional, knowledgeable, responsive (on top of every detail), and friendly! Leslie worked diligently to help us find the right home to meet all our needs. We are very appreciative of all her hard work through this process which resulted in a pretty seamless experience for us with a very happy ending – our wonderful new home!

 -Greg and Pam Dixon


Extremely Helpful In Our Search And Purchase Of Our First Home!

“Our experience with The Gene Group was perfect! Our Realtor Leslie was extremely helpful in our search for and purchase of our first home! She was constantly updating us on new homes on the market and keeping us updated once we were under contract. She was helpful and knowledgeable during the whole process! I would recommend Leslie and the Gene Group to everyone!

 -Megan  Bennett


You Will Not Be Disappointed By Choosing The Gene Group!

Our agent was fantastic throughout my whole home buying experience. As a first time purchaser, I was unsure of what to expect, but she was able to guide me through and answer every question. I inquired with Our agent and had an offer in on a house within one week, which is crazy in the current market. Our agent was there for the inspections, brought me coffee and bagels (she is seriously the best) and was available at anytime to chat. I absolutely adore my home and I’m so thankful I reached out! You will not be disappointed by choosing The Gene Group! 

 – Chelsea Hall

Kept Me Informed And Updated In An Extremely Timely Manner!

Olivia Nicodemus sought me out after she saw that my house was “For Sale by Owner.” She reached out to me for her service with the Gene Group, but she was never pushy in trying to let me hand the reins over to her. In fact, she wished me luck, gave me advice, and just checked in every once in a while in how I was doing. After my attempts failed for about a month and a half, I decided to go with Olivia and the Gene Group. She was extremely quick in her evaluation and listing, and gave me all the advice I needed to help sell the place through them. Throughout the showings and open houses, she kept me informed and updated in an extremely timely manner. Even as I moved 5 states away, she still made herself available and kept me in the loop at all times. I would highly recommend Olivia and the Gene Group for her expertise, politeness, responsiveness, and overall ability to sell a house within the best interest of her client! 

 – Kevin Grieshop

Advise Was Always Sound, Unbiased, And In Our Interests!

“Britney Bennett was a pleasure to work with and a true professional with a wealth of valuable experience to offer even a veteran home-buyer. Despite working with us while both out of state and locally, her advice was always sound, unbiased, and in our interests. We were continually impressed by her responsiveness, helpful insights, and impressive follow-through on questions we had and issues that arose throughout the process. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR TIME AND EFFORT! 

 – Ed Tuttle

Extremely Personable And Only Looked Into Our Best Interests!

The Gene Group was everything and more to us! They made our home searching and buying so easy, especially due to the fact that we were first time home buyers and had no clue how the process worked. Olivia Nicodemus was our realtor and she was great! She was extremely personable and only looked into our best interests. I highly recommend this group of realtors! 

 – Jamie Voight & Jacoby Walton

Very Flexible And Knowledgeable About Home Buying!

“Jennifer Danishek did an amazing job finding a first home for my wife and I. She was great at contacting the sellers and setting up a showing time very quickly and sometimes even that same night! She is very flexible and knowledgeable about home buying.  

 – Evan Slattery

Patient, Kind, And Supportive The Entire Time!

It was a wonderful experience through and through. I actually worked with my realtor Olivia off and on over the last 2 years before we finally found what we wanted and she was nothing but patient, kind and supportive the entire time. Oliva always responded quickly, answered all of my questions no matter how silly and was nothing but cheerful and supportive. Couldn’t have done any of this without her!

 – Jennifer Dowell


Sold Our Home Faster Than Anticipated!

“Our agent was available whenever we needed her, and she was proactive in solving any issues with the selling process. We sold our home faster than anticipated and earned more from the final sale than expected.  

 – Will Haas

The Staff At The Gene Group Is So Supportive!

“We used the Gene Group to both sell and buy our new home and couldn’t have been more impressed.. Our agent was so professional throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer questions, and when she wasn’t sure of something she made sure to find the answer as quickly as possible. Their approach to selling is truly unique. From the incredible staff, to the staging and photography. Everything was a smooth process. After less than 24 hours on the market, we received a nearly full price offer on our home and gladly accepted! The staff at the Gene Group is so supportive and truly understands anything that is needed to buy and sell your home. The purchase of our new home was quite complicated, but Our agent was up for the task and her negotiation skills were top notch! We will definitely be using Our agent  for all of our realty needs in the future! Couldn’t be happier with the Gene Group as a whole! 

 – Matthew and Rachel Jessup   


Made It Possible For My Dreams To Come True!

Our agent made it possible for my dreams to come true! Even though I sent her a text message at 6AM one morning about a home for my family and horses I saw listed on FB at 3AM the same morning she made it possible for us to go take a look and, with her knowledge and energy, make an offer at noon that day. Thank you so much! Having my horses once again on my own property makes my heart sing.  

 – Su and Bill Schmidt

Got Our Asking Price In Less Than 3 Days!

“The Gene Group sat down with us from the start and walked through our house and told us what they would like to see to get top dollar for our house. We did what they suggested and got our asking price in less than 3 days. We would use them again without hesitation.

 – Nick and Myra Gagliardi   


Made Me Fell As If It Was A Million Dollar Listing!

I wondered if I was the Gene Group’s only client because I felt like all their attention and time was on selling my home. Through their app, I was notified of every single step of the way. I knew scheduling times of staging, photographs, viewings and even (my favorite) immediate feedback. Everyone was helpful and diligent in solution solving. It was refreshing to have positive solutions for every possible setback. My home value was under $100K but the Gene Group made me feel as if it was a million dollar listing. If you are looking for a realtor, selling or buying, the Gene Group is the only way to go.

 – Maria & Jennifer Flo


Very Professional, A Great Communicator, Wonderful, Sincere!

Would you like a realtor that is a great communicator? Our agent is your realtor! Looking for a realtor that is on top of things quicker than you can think if it? Again…that would be Our agent! And, not only very professional, but a realtor with a wonderful and sincere personality? You must call Our agent at the Gene Group! After working with a company that didn’t seem to care for the clients at all, what a refreshing change. If we ever need real estate services again, we will definitely call Our agent at the Gene Group. Thank you so much, Our agent, for helping us get our house. We LOVE it!  

 – Cindy & David Blair

Efficient and Proactive, Always With Our Best Interest in Mind!

Olivia was a wonderful agent to work with. She was very patient with us and let’s go at our own pace. Once we made a decision she was on the ball to make it happen. All parties we dealt with that interacted with her commented on how efficient and proactive she was. She always had our best interest in mind and helped us through the entire process. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding agent.” 

 – Nathan Cumming

Made What I Thought to be Impossible, Possible!

Olivia was so helpful throughout my buying process. From the first time she showed me the perfect house for me, until the closing process. She made what I thought to be impossible, possible! I recommend this group to anyone looking for a caring, hardworking, and compassionate company to help them  along the way to find their perfect home! 

 – Jodie Meyer

Made the House Buying Process Stress-Free, Comfortable & Easy!

The Gene Group, in particular Olivia Nicodemus, made the house buying process stress free, comfortable, and easy. She listened to us, took into account our financial situation, and made us a priority every day. She only showed us houses that were close to our price range, had amenities we were looking for, and were in the area we requested. What we appreciated the most about the experience, was Olivia’s confidence that she would find a home that was perfect for us, and she delivered! 

 – Sarah & Hans Lonsinger

Outstanding Experience!

Our experience with the Gene Group was outstanding. Being it was our first time purchasing a home, we couldn’t have asked for a better company to work with. They made everything go so smoothly and it truly was a great experience. If we ever need to look for another house in the future we will be  sure to use them again, and we suggest anyone and everyone use them for their home buying/selling needs. Our agent truly was amazing!!! She knew exactly what homes to show us based off our wants and needs and truly made the process fun and easy. She was a true rockstar!!!

 – Cindy Albright & Travis Graving


Incredibly Responsive, Knowledgeable & Hard Working!

Our agent is a wonderful realtor, whom I’m happy to endorse. She’s incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and hard working for her clients. Also happy to have her as a new friend!

 – Bill & Diana Bodell

Responsive, Enthusiastic And Informative!

Heather Brock was our Gene Group real estate agent. She was a joy to work with. Heather was responsive, enthusiastic and informative. She helped answer our questions, arranged opportunities to revisit the property we selected for contractor measurements. She communicated via text and phone and we  were able to sign documents remotely. The close process was efficient. The Gene Group office was charming and was conducive to a stress free atmosphere. Working with Heather has been a great experience.

 – Dorian Choice & Robert Odon

Knowledgeable And Timely!

“I could not have found a better brokerage than the Gene Group. The entire staff was knowledgeable and timely. Eugene Pridgett helped me get the exact house I was looking for and I’m extremely happy!

 – Brian Clemmer


Absolutely GREAT Agent!

We worked with Our agent, who is an absolutely GREAT agent!! Our agent helped us find our new family home. She’s such a wonderful patient person who handled our search with such professional. She did an amazing job. We loved working with her have recommended her to all our friends looking to sell or purchase a home. Thank you  for all your hard work.”  “Realtor worked hard to find collection of homes that fit our needs. So many homes were made available for viewing that it was apparent the realtor listened to us closely and looked for homes that she would consider for a family member.”

 – Kimberley & James Hardick


Marketed Our Property Masterfully!

The Gene Group marketed our property so masterfully that we received an offer, over the asking price, after only two showings of the property. Initially, we were intrigued, but a bit skeptical about using the (free!) services of a “stager,” and while her recommendations resulted in a bit more work  than we had intended to complete (total renovation of the kitchen), I’m also convinced that the stager’s recommendations (all of which we followed to the letter) allowed all the hard work we had put into improvements to the house and property to show to best advantage. It took us six weeks to complete the work recommended by the stager (because we did some of it ourselves, and had to wait on the availability of contractors for others), and we feared the property was going on the market “too late,” but to receive an offer two days after “going live” with the promotional materials, proved well worth it. We ran into a snag with the appraisal process, but the The Gene Group had done their homework, and we believe the true value of our property is reflected in the results. I used The Gene Group to find the property initially, and then to sell the property to eager and appreciative buyers. I will definitely use The Gene Group again in the future, when we seek a retirement home in the Dayton area.

 – Cynthia Patterson

Worked Very Hard To Get Every Detail Taken Care Of!

Listing our home with The GeneGroup was the best decision we made throughout the process of selling our home. We originally listed our home in August 2016 with another realtor, but after months of minimal effort from the realtor, very few showings and a 9 month contract, we removed our house from the market in March of 2017. Still wanting to sell our home, we reached out to the GeneGroup, whom we had heard of from a friend. We received an immediate response from Gene, and within the week they came out to view our home. The walkthrough was quick, and very thorough. They gave us a list of possible updates we could do that would help “show” our home better. After that was completed, they came back out to our home to stage it. The staging process was probably where we were most impressed. The stager came out and spent hours in our home while we were at work. When we came back home, our house looked more beautiful than it ever had! Shortly after, professional pictures were taken, and it was listed within 24 hours. We loved how quick this process was. Jen reached out to us when it was officially on the market, and within the hour we had a showing scheduled. 4 months later, our house was sold! Gene fought for the best pricing for us, and was very quick to respond to us when we needed. Jen helped answered every question that we had-no matter what time of day it was. They worked around our schedules the week of closing as best as they could, and worked very hard to get every detail taken care of. Every future endeavor in buying or selling a home, we will definitely be using the Gene Group!

 – Gabe & Lindsey Stapleton

Always There for Us!

From the first time Our agent met with us until we signed the papers for our new home she was always there for us just a phone call away. We asked her many many questions and if she didn’t know the answer she found it out. All of the people at The Gene Group was always there for us. We can not give enough praise for her hard work and she made us feel so special. We will definitely recommend your group to any one we know that is moving.

 – Paul & LaDonna Wilcox


Everything You Would Want in a Realtor!

When we first signed up for Gene Group they had a very quick response time. However, they did not blow our phones up constantly wanting to do a showing. Very casual to start. Our agent was our first initial contact person from Gene Group & she remained our point of contact through the entire process.  Our agent did a great job as our realtor. She took into account our living/moving/work situation & she accommodated our schedule every time. She followed up on all reports we requested during the showing process and most importantly she showed us over 15-20 homes without batting an eye. She was realistic and wasn’t afraid to express her opinion or expertise. When it came time to negotiate – Our agent won. When it came time to close – she was on top of her game. Our agent followed up with our loan provider weekly, she kept us updated constantly. She was everything you would want in a realtor and had a great attitude. Two thumbs up.

 – Michael & Gwyn Daley

Sold Our Home Incredibly Quick!

Olivia is an awesome realtor and it’s obvious that she loves what she does! She knows so much about real estate and was able to help us sell our home incredibly quick with very little notice. She is available for questions almost anytime and goes out of her way to show you that she is working for you. I recommend her to anyone who asks for a good realtor in the Dayton area!

 – Ashley Williams & David Welsh

Made the Whole Experience Very Easy and Pleasant!

I begin looking on line at houses for sale in the area that I was interested in during the winter months. Our agent sent me the current market listings faithfully for months until I was ready to make the move. My house was under contact, so I contacted Our agent and ask her to set up.several  house to see. I told her exactly what I was interested in & the amount I intended to spend. She had five houses in the area I was interested in and also the size and amount I wanted to spend. Out of the five houses, the third house was perfect for me. I made an offer and it was accepted. I closed today. Our agent was great to work with. She made the whole experience very easy and pleasant.

 – Myrenia Millen


Sold 2 Homes!

“This is the 2nd home that The Gene Group has sold for us, and just like the first, we were not disappointed. The knowledge and professionalism of Gene and the staff is outstanding. From the Staging, which really is the key, to the Closing and everything in between went very smooth. Listed it on Tuesday and had an offer on Friday for full asking price! We highly recommend the Gene Group!”

The Best in the Business!

“We cannot say enough about Our agent and the Gene Group! From the beginning, Our agent blew away our expectations. We were first time home buyers and he patiently guided us through the process and answered all of our thousands of questions. Our agent is very professional, yet down to earth, knowledgeable, fair, understanding, and easy to talk to. In the present real estate market, homes are pending sale within 24 hours of listing. There were several times where we were in multiple buyer situations, including the home we purchased. Our agent worked at all hours of the night, responded to us as if we were his only clients, gave us great advise, and in the end, got us the home we love! Every service Our agent recommended, including our home inspector, title agency, loan officer and repair service were also great and very professional-maybe some of the best in the business! Our agent work shows that he cares a lot about what he does and has a passion for real estate! We will never use another agent and would recommend him to anyone!

 – Vince & Kari Clements

Expert Knowledge & Experience!

I recently worked with Our agent in purchasing my first home. Our agent was extremely personable and understood all of my preferences when it came to looking at different properties. She was immediate in all of her responses and showed expert knowledge and experience when it came to negotiating the terms of purchase. I do not have enough great things to say about Our agent and the rest of the employees I encountered at The Gene Group! I will definitely be taking advantage of their professional service in my next home sale/purchase.

 – Jeffrey Popella

Great Communication!

“I worked with Our agent from the group and I’m very satisfied with all his hard work for finding me my first home! Great communication, always made himself available for showings and kept every promise he made!

 – Alexandra Triplett

Absolute Pleasure to Work With!

The Gene Group was an absolute pleasure to work with. They helped us sell our home and purchase a new one. Gene Pridgett took excellent care of us and always answered any questions we had very quickly. The staging team did an amazing job at staging our home to sell. Our house sold very quickly and  for a great price. When looking for a new home to buy, Gene was so patient and helped to make sure we found the right home for us. Anytime an issue would arise, he would communicate with us and take care of the issue right away. Everyone with The Gene Group was so professional and really took the time to make sure we, as clients, were highly satisfied. I would highly recommend The Gene Group to everyone I know that is interested in buying or selling a home.

 – Cody & Rachel Gill


Dream Experience!

From start to finish, The Gene Group made buying and selling our homes easy and enjoyable. We purchased a home the same day we received our loan approval and we also sold our current home in less than 24 hours. It was a dream experience that we could not have planned any more perfectly. Our realtor was not only professional but also very down to earth and made the overwhelming process seem effortless and fun! The staging advice made our home look sleek and sophisticated and was evident in the professional photography, all provided by The Gene Group team. Within minutes of our listing going “live”, there were cars driving out front of our home ready to request showings. Everything was managed electronically through apps which allowed my husband and I total control over scheduling showings, which we appreciated with a small child in the house. We highly recommend using The Gene Group for buying or selling your home

 – Pete & Emily Ankrom

Incredible Professionalism and Expertise!

The professionalism and expertise that I received from Gene Pridgett and his team was incredible.  My home sold OVER list price in just a few days. We also received several offers. The free staging – (that I didn’t think I needed because my home was empty) was extremely helpful in selling my home.   It made a big difference in the eyes of the buyers.  I would highly recommend The Gene Group and will use them again if I decide to buy or sell my home.

 – Melissa North & Chris Eichler

Made the Whole Process of Buying our First Home Fun!

We worked with Our agent at the Gene Group. He was friendly, helpful and made the whole process of buying our first home fun. Our agent engaged with us during each house we looked at and offered helpful advice while also allowing us to form our own opinions. Our agent even indulged us by taking us to see a  house in the country that we knew we probably couldn’t handle. Our agent answered all of our questions in a timely and helpful manner. I would recommend Our agent personally to anyone. He also had access to an amazing home inspector, title company, and repair man whose services we utilized and were very impressed with them too. Bottom line- the Gene Group cares about their work and it shows.

Extremely Knowledgeable!

I could not be any happier with my experience with Eugene and his team. He is extremely knowledgeable and really wanted to find the best value for my money. The best representation of The Gene Group is reflected through the professionals they associate with. The inspector made sure to look in every nook and cranny during our inspections and saved me from buying a money pit. He did so well that I was nervous to have him inspect the home I ended up purchasing! I will be a customer for as long as I live in the Dayton area.

 – Tyler Mays

Patient, Upbeat & Responsive!

Our agent was very patient with us as we made offers on several houses. He was always upbeat and never gave up on us. He also was very responsive to all our needs and often initiated the contact to be sure we knew all we needed to know.  He is surely an asset to your company!”

 –  Thomas & Nancy Osborne

Incredibly Helpful Every Step of the Way!

Our agent was incredibly helpful every step of the way in the process of getting our new home. She was persistent with helping look for contender houses and was always on the ball to get things done as fast as we needed. I’m so thankful that I picked the gene group to help me with my new purchase!”

Sold 2 Homes While Buying Our “Forever” Home!

“Great experience working with the Gene group!  Truly a group of professional real estate experts that want to succeed and help their clients achieve their goals and dreams in a home purchase.  We searched across 5 counties in the Dayton, OH region until we found EXACTLY what we were looking for in  a new home purchase.  We did this all while selling our primary home and selling our rental property as well. 

Olivia Nicodemus made the process work with ease. Our primary home was on contract within a week and the rental home on contract in about 40  days.  Impressed with the team’s overall knowledge of the current real estate markets and the services bundled with the sales commission.  What helps the gene group stand out is: 1) Staging expertise to make sure the home is presentable and looks nice to prospective buyers 2) Embracing technology; excellent marketing online (needed in today’s world); Properties marketed on all websites that people use today allowing for maximum visibility; Docusign is a great tool that allowed us to read and sign offers/legal documents “on the go” through an iPAD/smartphone app (we loved this) 3) Professionally taken pictures and 3D walkthrough was awesome! 4) Responsiveness was Excellent!  If there was ever a question that could not be answered or more information needed, the Gene Group would get the answer for us. 

Well done Gene Group and Olivia Nicodemus.  We recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home.  We are thankful you navigated us through selling 2 homes all while buying our “forever” home.”

Sold My Home and Bought a New One in Record Time!

“It isn’t possible to have a better experience than with The Gene Group. Their professionalism is outranked by none! I sold my home and bought a new one in record time, and I couldn’t be happier. This is not an exaggeration: We had an offer on our home less than 24 hours after putting it up for sale. I attribute this success to Olivia’s “homework” that she gave us before staging did their walk through and the Gene Group’s fantastic staging team. Listen to the stagers- they know what they are doing. Buying our new home was made simple with Olivia’s “no nonsense” attitude. I trusted her opinion on every matter that came to mind. She handled/arranged the all of inspections on our new home seamlessly. When it comes to Olivia and The Gene Group, there are no surprises. (Except for happy surprises- like an early closing) Olivia Nicodemus is the best Realtor I have ever dealt with. PERIOD!”

 – Jennifer & Thomas Walker

Enjoyable and Rewarding Process!

I can’t say enough about how pleased we were with the entire experience from start to finish. Olivia Nicodemus stayed on top of every detail while keeping our best interest at heart. I appreciated that help was offered at any time when we had questions. She was quIck to respond and didn’t waste our  time. She made what could have been a difficult process into an enjoyable and rewarding one. She was very knowledgeable regarding the whole process, so we were very confident with her advice and recommendations. Thanks for helping us find the perfect home!

 – Cody Stanley

Knowledgeable, Courteous, Transparent!


“Having used Gene in the past we were confident in his ability to sell our house and help us buy a new one. What we were not prepared for, was how quickly Gene moved to make both buying and selling happen within our allotted time frame. Gene made a special house visit to listen to our plans to list in the spring. Gene, having done is research, helped us understand the most advantageous time to move was prior to Spring and began work immediately. We received an offer within SIX DAYS of listing. The Gene Group also coordinated our closing dates, enabling us to move seamlessly from one house to the other. Amidst buying/selling our primary home, Gene was also able secure an offer for our second home. Gene is knowledgeable, courteous, transparent, and the hardest working man in the business as far as I’m concerned. We will only recommended Gene to our friends and family looking to buy or sell. Thank you so much!”

 – Charles & Porsha Crawford

Zero Pressure and Great Throughout the Process!


When it comes to real estate this group has got it together!!  We bought a house with the help of agent Derek Tipton.  This usually stressful process with Derek was far from that.  He was a zero pressure agent that spent months with us looking at homes and we never felt any pressure from him on any  house to put in an offer or look at one that we weren’t really interested in.  He was available at all hours for our questions or to look at a home and never made us feel like any offer we wanted to make was unreasonable.  End result = found us the perfect home.  Best in the business for buying a house!!  Then we had a home to sell and needed to sell it quickly to try to avoid 2 mortgages for an extended period of time.  Derek then turned us over to Gene Pridgett.  Once you give Gene the green light to sell your house then put on your seat belt and hang on.  He put us to work and assured us it would pay off.  We did a few minor things per his teams request then they staged our home and took the most awesome professional pictures and when our listing hit the market he sold our house for LIST PRICE IN 16 DAYS!!!  Wow.  Gene and Jen were great throughout the process.  Excellent prompt communication.   All of these people were great and will get recommended to anyone I know.

Professional At All Levels – Flawless!

img_2721We purchased a home in the Sugar Creek area and had an awesome experience with Our agent representing us. I would like to say from day one Our agent was always professional at all levels from meeting us on time to negotiations and after the sale. This was our 4th home purchase and she was  flawless. I have been in the sales industry for 25 plus years and know a superstar when I see one. Please give this girl a try…

Handled All My Real Estate Needs!


The Gene Group is a great company that provided me with a team of experts to handle all of my real estate needs from selling to renting. They took professional photos, staged, provided reliable/reasonable maintenance experts and property manager services. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.

– Lebaron King


Quick & Smooth Process!

“This is our second time working with Olivia. Our house was listed on a Saturday and sold on the Monday. It was a quick & smooth process! She also helped us close on our forever home! We can’t thank Olivia enough for all she did! I highly recommend Olivia. She is very professional and knowledgeable!”

– Anne & Derek Taggart

Really Impressed!

family“We used the Gene Group to buy and sell our house. We sold our house in two days (for more than the asking price!). We were really impressed with the staging that they did, their communication and their advice throughout the process of buying and selling. Highly recommended!”

– Fred & Rachel Marion


Extremely Helpful & Patient!

“Olivia was extremely helpful and patient with me and took the time to explain the things that I didn’t understand and give me her opinion when she thought it was in my best interest. She was very honest, extremely timely on correspondence, and was flexible in working around my third shift schedule.  Can’t say enough good things about her.”

– Jesse Reynolds


“Our agent is Olivia Nicodemus and she is the greatest. She sent us houses and when when we wanted to see them, she got right back with us. We could not ask for a better agent and friend in business. Thank you.”

– George & Kathleen Buchhalter

Wonderful to Work With!

Couldn’t thank her and this company enough!!!!”

– Mireya & Donnie Melton

Moved from Out of State!

“We moved from out of state not knowing anything about the area. Olivia Nicodemus’s communication skills were exactly what we needed to begin our search. We were 740 miles (1190 km) away. We could not simply drive to find a house. Olivia took the challenge via texting back and forth of possible  homes and even completed walked throughs via facetime, it was perfect solution. We only had to drive to Dayton twice. The first was a fun filled day with Olivia and my family walking through houses.  She shared her extensive knowledge about the area services, neighborhoods and openly discussed pros & cons of each location. The second was the day of closing. When we we finally found two houses, which we wanted to make our home, she didn’t hold back on her negotiating skills. We felt as if we were the Gene Group’s and Olivia Nicodemus’s only client.  Olivia Nicodemus gave us confidence in our choices because she knew what we were looking for a home, not just a house.  She listened to our requirements and walked us through to the perfect home. As soon as we made the initial offer Olivia showed her fierce negotiating skills with counters and advice. We finished the entire process, with out a doubt, we got the right price. We have a beautiful home in the Dayton area. We have the perfect location for our lifestyle, commute and with the square footage to enjoy our space. I highly, without any reservations, recommend Olivia Nicodemus for a realtor if you are looking to buy a home.”

– Maria & Jennifer Flo

Responsive & Aggressive!

“The Gene Group listed my home and it sold within 80 days from listing to close. They were very responsive and aggressive. We were very satisfied with the results. Additionally, they helped us buy another home and were knowledgeable about the process and kept us informed along the way.”

– Amanda & Adam Bennett

Top Shelf Service!

IMG_6151“I had to sell a home I had been renting out in Ohio remotely as I had relocated to Oregon. Based on the recommendation of my property manager, I hired Our agent at The Gene Group to be my selling agent. They did an amazing job in handling the whole affair. From working with my property manager  to coordinate the departure of my tenants and scheduling the contractors to prep the place for sale, to working with the Condo Association to ensure everything happened smoothly on their end, to coordinating and advising during the sales process and closing. This is top shelf service and my agent went WAY above on multiple occasions to make it happen. I could not be happier.”


– Scot Alsop

Patient & Worked With Us!

My Realtor Olivia was great, she was very patient with us, and had many great recommendations that we took advantage of. Took a year for us to rebuild our credit to the point to where I could use my VA loan but was worth it. I started out with one of those ads you see on TV but never got anywhere. But with Olivia things went fast and she was always keeping us informed on our situation and homes in our price point.”

– Chris Fretz

Determined – Achieved Our Goals and Dreams!

The Gene Group was outstanding in both selling our home and helping us to buy a home. The staging of our home resulted in our home selling very quickly. Olivia Nicodemus was determined to help us find exactly what we were looking for in a home. She was extremely kind and patient with our search. I  strongly urge anyone buying or selling to have the Gene Group helping them to achieve their goals and dreams.”

– Mark & Shawne Mazzei

First Home!

“Olivia through the Gene Group helped me and my boyfriend to buy our first home. She was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions and problems.”

– Nicole Stacy

Incredibly Helpful!

“I recently purchased a house to flip. Olivia was incredibly helpful with multiple aspects of my journey. While I was working on the house, she stopped by several times to check on my progress and to answer questions of mine to help with color schemes, patterns, and to make sure I was in line with  what could sell quickly. I am very appreciative for all of her professional help. I plan to use her skills more in the future, and I would and have recommended her to friends.”

– Matt Knouff

Fantastic Experience!

Came Through for Me!

IMG_4116“The Gene Group came through for me! I listened to their advice about selling, and the very first people to view the home bought it! And Gene and Olivia were there for me every step of the way. Olivia met me numerous times to view condos, and was a great source of information as well as understanding. I never felt pressured to move on a property, but when I found “the one,” Olivia was as excited as I was! I am so glad I chose The Gene Group for selling and buying-you just won’t find better!”

The Total Package!

“The Gene Group offers the total package. From the stager who made our house look like a model home to the professional photographer whose pictures made our house look like it should be in a magazine to an assistant who answered our many questions at all hours of the day, they have the selling process down. After interviewing different realtors, we knew within minutes of meeting Gene that he would be the agent to sell our house. Our house sold quickly for a higher price than other agents were willing to list it at. We know who we will call should we need to buy or sell in the future!”

Positive, Encouraging & Responsive!

“Olivia and the Gene Group were wonderful! Olivia showed us so many houses in so many locations and the whole time she was positive and encouraging. She was always there when we had a question about the process or a house or a location. She responded to texts, emails and phone calls so quickly. I think we would have become discouraged and given up looking at buying a house if it weren’t for her. She helped us get the house of our dreams!”

Nicole Beebe

First-time home buyers AND new to the area!

“As first time home buyers, finding the right agent was very important to us. We would highly recommend The Gene Group and our agent. After meeting her briefly, we knew she was the agent for us. Her attentiveness and professional demeanor speaks for itself. I was particularly impressed at how patient she was, my husband and I never felt rushed or pressured and I think that is the proper way to shop for a house. She listened to our needs and delivered on the type of homes we were looking for, she was honest in answering our questions (if she didn’t know something) she would say so and let us know – she would get back to us with an answer within several hours. We are new to Dayton and she was very knowledgeable of the area, neighborhoods etc. What we loved most about her was her positive energy, lets face it (the home buying process can be hectic at times) especially during the negotiating process – Our agent truly excelled in this department and was always dead on when it came to comps, bids and counter offers. Furthermore, when deals didn’t go through and we felt discouraged her positive reinforcement and proactive feed back really kept us going. She was fast and responsive to all our questions and concerns, always on time, and open to extending or minimizing our search. Overall – we have absolutely no complaints, the entire process ran smoothly and we are extremely content. Thanks to The Gene Group and all of their staff for their hard work – because good work takes team effort. Thank you  for your diligence and patience, and for helping us find our Dream Home!”

In a word…precision!

We successfully sold (for considerably more than asking price) and purchased property with the Gene Group in four days. The marketing techniques employed…..incredible professional photography and staging, made our property show as nice as it was. Negotiations were easy and inspections went off without a hitch. I think the best word to describe Gene and the whole process would be precision. Surprises were very minimal and Dawn and I couldn’t be more satisfied.

Purchased First Home and Couldn’t Be More Pleased!

Moving From Out of State!

 “Moving to the area from out of state was rather stressful. The Gene Group provided excellent service and made the real estate process surprisingly effortless.

A Wonderful Experience!!!

“Working with Mr. Tipton and The Gene Group was a wonderful experience. I have worked with Derek over the last several years and have purchased 2 homes and sold 1. I continue to give him my repeat business because he is knowledgeable and experienced. My most recent purchase was especially important to me. I looked at several homes with Derek and he was patient and kind as I tried to make this big decision. The house I wanted was in foreclosure and it took 10 offers to finally make the purchase. Derek was very patient and helpful during this process. He offered advice and expertise that I needed at the time. Without his foresight and persistence on my behalf I would not be in my dream home. If you are looking for someone who understands the real estate industry as well as the need to make the right choice at the right time, I would definitely recommend Derek Tipton as a real estate agent for you! “

Our old house sold in 3 WEEKS!!!

I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to our realtor, Gene !!! The search started in April and just finished last week. That’s a long time of putting up with me and my high maintenance needs! Gene never once made me feel like a nuisance or laughed at my ignorant questions (& I had a lot!) He was patient with us while we took months and had tons of showings to find the right house. I was also very impressed with his business team who staged our house and helped get it on the market. Our old house sold in 3 WEEKS!!! Yes, you read that right!!! 3 WEEKS!!! Buying and selling a house is scary and exciting. I am very appreciative of Gene’s knowledge, patience, and honesty along the way. If you are thinking about listing your house or maybe just contemplating a move in the near future, do yourself a favor and call The Gene Group!!! Thanks a million Gene!!!

Flat Out Delivers!

“First this is long overdue. We could have applauded Gene and Rebecca’s talents and professionalism the day after they first took on the task of selling our house. And now with over a month behind us I’m afraid I won’t do justice to them after so many days of enjoying and getting settled in our new home. Gene is very knowledgeable and honest. He displayed a genuine concern for our best interest and he works hard. Bottom line, we would not hesitate to recommend Gene. This man delivers.”

Ready To List!

Sean-Robyn-Duley“When we were ready to list our home we decided on Our agent with The Gene Group. This was a great decision on our part! Our home sold in 10 days thanks to her diligence and the professional services offered by her realty group. Our agent was always available when we needed her for questions or concerns and worked around our busy schedule. She even came over late after our daughter went to bed so we could talk with her without being distracted. She was the definition of professional and worked with us to help us feel like we were getting the deal we wanted when selling our house. Our agent and The Gene Group offered us current market information, home staging services and professional photographs and we feel that this combination is exactly how our house sold so quickly! The experience of working with Our agent and The Gene Group was outstanding and our family could not have been happier working with anyone else.”

– Sean & Robyn Duley

Needed To Buy Fast!

Hess“We wanted a house and quick, but we didn’t want to spend too many of our weekends searching. Our agent took no time at all to assemble a short list of the best prospects based on our preferences.  She was even patient with us when we texted her our updates at all hours of the night.  We needed a big yard for our dogs — Check!  We needed a garage or a basement — We got both!  We wanted a house with lots of natural light — Let the sun shine!  She did such a great job from the very start that we found our house on our first outing.  The sellers didn’t hire a Realtor of their own so it could’ve been a nightmare, but Our agent took charge and handled everything!  She even coached them through the paperwork so that we could close in a timely manner. Our agent exceeded our every expectation and we’re very grateful.  We couldn’t be happier with our new home!

Cross Country Relocation!

Levine“We were referred to Gene from friends of ours who had transferred into the area. Moving into a new area from out of state is always a challenge. To make it even more interesting we decided to build new construction. Gene worked with us and the builder to ensure that everything was moving according to plan and helped us with the necessary information we needed to keep on top of our new construction project. Today, we are enjoying our dream home! If you are buying, building, or selling I would recommend Gene and his group of professionals. Thank you for making this an easy process!”

Unfortunately, we needed to sell at the worse time of the year. Didn’t matter. Gene and his team had our property ready to go and we were sold in DAYS not MONTHS! All I can say is thanks for helping us make a difficult situation so much easier. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

I’d highly recommend Gene and his group to anyone considering buying or selling real estate in any market! Quality job! Thanks so much…”

We followed Gene’s plan and our property went live. The next morning we had a buyer. Who sells in hours let alone in December! We also got top of the market for our property. I’d recommend Gene and his group in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much for all your help!”

Perfect House Perfect Execution

“Thank you immensely for helping us find the perfect place, AGAIN! There was no doubt that after our first home purchase that we would be working with you again. With you in our corner we never lost sleep, argued, or worried about what was to come. You laid out the processes as they would occur, explaining what each step meant in a simple yet effective way. We never expected to have a realtor who was so genuine, knowledgeable, and effective. I have ALREADY recommended you to my friends, family and colleagues and will continue to do so. We can now enjoy marriage in a home that fits our wants and needs, and it was all thanks to you!”

We also had fun at The Gene Group’s Annual Bowling & BBQ outing—great time. We would recommend Gene and his group to anyone looking to buy or sell. “

Found Just The Right Home

“We were purchasing our first home and we were asking our friends who’d they recommend to help us with our purchase. We had two friends that recommended the agent they had used.

We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and are proud new homeowners. We highly recommend Gene and his group. “

Relocation To Ohio

” We were relocating to Ohio for a job opportunity and we only had a few days to find our new home. Needless to say we were stressed and under pressure to find something that would fit our needs. A good friend referred Gene to us and while I valued my friend’s opinion I was still apprehensive. After we got started and continued to progress I realized that my friend had done me a favor. Gene was able to help us find a great property at the price I wanted to spend and handled the transaction with me being in transit. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer Gene and his group.”

– Ruby Gonzalez & Family


Made New Construction Easy

” I met Gene when I was looking for a property to rent. When I called he asked, “If I can afford a rental payment had I considered buying a home” While I had thought about it in the past I just hadn’t decided to make it happen. We talked for a while about my wants, needs and goals for a home and Gene mentioned something that I had simply not considered—NEW CONSTRUCTION. Long story short I decided to build and I have a beautiful new home. Gene helped me through the entire process and I apologized to him over and over for asking so many questions. Gene really took care of my daughter and me and I highly recommend his services to anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate.”

Sold First In A Tough Market

” Friends of ours referred Gene to us. They had successfully sold their home and we were now in the market to sell ours. We knew that this was a tough market, but with a job opportunity at stake we really needed to sell. Gene provided all the information we needed to make educated choices in this tough market along with resources that helped make our home stand out from the rest. With over 48 other homes for sale in our market we were one of the first to go under contract. We were very happy with Gene’s services and would recommend Gene and his team to anyone thinking of selling their home.”

Found Our First Home & We Love It

“As first time homebuyers we decided to drive our desired neighborhood and see what we could find. We called Gene from one of his listing signs and inquired about a property. We decided to work with Gene and his team and we were glad we did. Looked at several homes and finally decided on one that was just right. Gene helped us take care of everything and we love our new home. We’d easily refer anyone looking to buy or sell their home to work with Gene and his group.”

Right Away We Knew It Was A Fit

“When my husband and I decided to sell our house I didn’t take it lightly. You see I had lived in it since I was 2 (36 years). We interviewed several realtors and decided to partner with Eugene Pridgett. Why? Right away we thought he was a fit for us- business oriented, family centered, and was a realtor as a professional not as a side job or anything else. He came prepared with folders full of data and information. He had done his homework.

A few months later we are pleased we made that decision. He was wonderful, as was his stager- Rebecca. We listened to the stager, made the house into what she knew would be desired by buyers. She even came over and hung the majority of the items on the wall! That was a lifesaver- with both of us working full time we were strapped for time as it was in the process. We treated the staging like the house was not longer ours. And did it ever work. The house went on the market on a Friday evening and by Sunday we had had 5 showings and a full price offer . We would be moving out in less than a month!
Then we started to look for a replacement home. One that fit both our needs and desires. Again, quickly we found what we desired. Gene gave his advice when asked and patiently went with us to look at several houses at times that were conducive to our schedule. The entire time he talked and joked with our kids, got to know us, and gave a personal touch to the entire process.

The entire process was painless and smooth. No surprises. No unexpected bumps or problems. Gene was with us through the entire thing always quickly responding to our questions no matter how trivial. At the end of the journey, when we had closed on our new house and were there for the first time Gene arrived with the most personal of presents- a hardbound book with pictures of my childhood home and at the end a picture of our new house! As our family and friends have looked through it we get many comments, but one stands out most of all “This is from your realtor? Wow. That’s class. He really cared for you guys and did a great job on everything.” And they are right- this could have been a very emotional process for me and instead it was the most wonderful.

Thanks Gene for everything you did!

Amy, Rick, Chaz, and Aaron Weiser”

Everything Went Smooth

“We’ve known Gene for a while now and mentioned to Gene that we were in the market for a home. We really didn’t know what we wanted, but Gene knew us. Gene got in contact with us one day and he said that he had a new listing that he just knew would fit our style and needs. Two days later we were homeowners! Everything went smooth, unlike the first home we purchased years ago. Thank you for doing such a great job and making the process so easy. We couldn’t have purchased the house without you and your team going above and beyond! We have already referred two friends and always tell everyone that if you want it done and done right call Gene.”

Went The Extra Mile

“Thank you for doing such a great job with our relocation. You went the extra mile to ensure my wife and I were at ease with such a big transition. You and your team of professionals and resources made a difficult relocation easy! These few words of praise don’t do justice to how much you actually did for us. We couldn’t have purchased the house we did at the price we did without you and your team going above and beyond! “

Great Experience

“Working with Gene was a great experience. We were so impressed by his professionalism and his wealth of knowledge. Gene helped us find exactly what we were looking for, and best yet, we were able to purchase our new home with instant equity. Gene’s help didn’t end with the closing; his redesign/staging specialist helped us with the feel of our home. We love it. His network of contacts was a huge asset to us. We would definitely recommend Gene and his group to anyone. We couldn’t ask for a smoother, more positive experience. Thanks!”

Made It Happen

“After listing our property for a year with a big name agent and not selling we were ready for a new option. We met Gene and his group on the internet and after interviewing several agents we decided that Gene’s market plan and industry knowledge fit us well. After about 3 weeks I’m glad to say we are sold. We were finally able to buy our new home and move on with our lives. If you need to get the job done call Gene and his group. We are glad that we did.”

Working with Gene and his resources allowed me to purchase my new home with less down payment than I thought It was going to be and I was able to keep my monthly payments low too!

I’d definitely recommend Gene and his group to any first time home buyers without question.”

Made A Way Out Of No Way

“Thank you so much! We had our home listed for over a YEAR with an agent that just put a sign in the yard and hoped it would sell. Gene took over the sale of our home and was able to make things happen. Honestly, I truly didn’t think we would be able to sell in this market given our situation. Bottom line, he made a way out of no way! I would definitely recommend Gene to anyone wanting to sell their home.”

Not Another Run Around

“I just wanted to say thank you for all your work with the house. No other Realtor wanted to help us purchase our first home and we didn’t know how we were going to make it happen. When we met you we knew that it wasn’t going to be just another run around. You did what you said you’d do and we really appreciate it. Can’t wait to enjoy the holidays in our new home!”
“Thanks so very much for taking the time to work with us.”

Time Was Of The Essence!

“Being military my family and I had a tight deadline to relocate. I met Gene several months back at one of his open houses and thought I’d give him the opportunity to help us. Glad I did! From the time we found our new home to close was 16 days! Not to mention a great price for the property and a great loan from one of his lender partners. I had to be TDY and had no time to waste. Gene and his team of professional resources were able to coordinate everything seamlessly and without delay. I would definitely recommend Gene and his group for anyone buying or selling their home. Without question!”

Made Our PCS Easy

“We appreciate your effort and dedication in our PCS! I had only been to Wright Patterson Air Force Base one time on TDY and didn’t know much about the area. You provided the necessary information we needed to make a quality decision from afar. From school information, crime statistics, pictures, videos, private portal access for easy documentation flow, quality lender choices, to simply which highways could possibly give us the worse commute to work in the morning was invaluable. Thanks so much for taking such good care of us.”

Effortless PCS

“Always difficult moving to a new area with only an assigned sponsor that may or may not be available to you. Your knowledge of the market area and ease of transferring information allowed us to purchase a great home without the fear of not knowing if we were spending too much. This might not be praise worthy enough for all the help you provided. Thank you so much for making our PCS to Ohio one of the easiest thus far.”

Needed To Move Fast

“Our family was growing and we needed to move up to a home with more space. Gene was referred to me from a family member and the quote was “if you want to get your home sold fast give him a call.” So we did and a month later we were under contract. Another month or so later we were in our new home. Thanks for your help and expertise.”
