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
“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. Stephanie 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!
“Stephanie Westfall 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 Laurie Westheimer, who is an absolutely GREAT agent!! Laurie 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 Laurie 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 Laurie 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 Laurie 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. Stephanie Westfall was our first initial contact person from Gene Group & she remained our point of contact through the entire process. Stephanie 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 – Stephanie won. When it came time to close – she was on top of her game. Stephanie 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. Nicole Bradley 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 Nicole 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. Nicole 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!”
– Bobbie & Dave Murphy
The Best in the Business!
“We cannot say enough about Ray Nicodemus and the Gene Group! From the beginning, Ray 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. Ray 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. Ray 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 he 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! Rays 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 Jenny Edwards in purchasing my first home. Jenny 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 Jenny 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
“I worked with Ray 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
“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 Ray 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 Ray Nicodemus at the Gene Group. He was friendly, helpful and made the whole process of buying our first home fun. Ray engaged with us during each house we looked at and offered helpful advice while also allowing us to form our own opinions. He even indulged us by taking us to see a house in the country that we knew we probably couldn’t handle. Ray answered all of our questions in a timely and helpful manner. I would recommend Ray 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.“
– Andrew & Erin Sanford
“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!
“Ray 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!
“Nicole 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!”
– Cody Eanes
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.”
– Jake & Jessica McKinley
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.
– Mark & Shellie Coleman
Professional At All Levels – Flawless!
“We purchased a home in the Sugar Creek area and had an awesome experience with Nicole Bradley representing us. I would like to say from day one Nicole 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…“
– Jamie & Chastity Ramirez
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
“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!
“Olivia is very personable and helpful in every way. She responds back to phone calls very quickly. She will make appointment for your convenience, not hers. She will research your question and have your answers quickly. I will recommend Olivia every chance I get. She was wonderful to work with.”
– Diana Hall
Best Buying Experience Ever!
“My realtor was amazing! Best buying experience ever!!! She was there every step of the way!!!! She made everything fast and easy with lots of convenience for my husband and I. We Felt comfortable and confident in everything the Gene Group did for our buying experience! We will always recommend our family and friends and even strangers to go through this company!!! 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!
“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 Stephanie 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
“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
“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
“I had a fantastic experience using The Gene Group. Stephanie was very knowledge about all the neighborhoods we explored and quick to offer advice or point or troubling signs she may have seen in a property. I couldn’t have had more fun touring homes than I did with her!”
– Jason McIntosh
Came Through for Me!
“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!”
– Ellen Carrison
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!”
– Joe & Erika Lindsey
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!”
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 Stephanie Westfall. 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 – Stephanie 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 Stephanie for your diligence and patience, and for helping us find our Dream Home!”
Hemanth & Scarlett Gujjola
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.”
– Jim & Dawn Smith
Impressed with the whole team!
“We were so impressed with the Gene Group. The whole team is patient and was willing to answer all of our questions. From the staging to the selling we felt communicated to and taken care of. Also, if we ever had a question or concern they responded quickly and worked with us. We will use them next time we sell and will recommend them to anyone.”
– Brad & Steph Rogers
Purchased First Home and Couldn’t Be More Pleased!
“Gene helped my husband and I purchase our first home. He got us the deal of the century! We couldn’t be more pleased with the location, and the size of home we got for our money. He is very knowledgeable and helpful, especially for first time buyers. He also has a lot of resources for good inspectors, loan officers, etc. Gene genuinely cares about his clients! .”
– Sara Kight
High Quality Realtor Experience!
“The Gene Group is a highly professional organization with top quality customer service. Olivia Nicodemus was my Realtor and she helped find the perfect house for me! I would highly recommend using the Gene Group if you are looking for a high quality Realtor experience. I will be using them for life personally and I couldn’t be happier with my new property and home.”
– Bradley Marion
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. Unlike other agencies, they listened to what I wanted and were responsive to my needs. Through working with the Gene Group, I was able to learn a great deal about my target area and find the home of my dreams.”
– Cathy McClure
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! “
– Jen Manley
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!!! “
– Russell & Katie Hulbert
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.”
– Dave & Bobbie Murphy
Ready To List!
“When we were ready to list our home we decided on Stephanie Westfall 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. Stephanie 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. Stephanie 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 Stephanie 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!
“We wanted a house and quick, but we didn’t want to spend too many of our weekends searching. Stephanie 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 Stephanie took charge and handled everything! She even coached them through the paperwork so that we could close in a timely manner. Stephanie exceeded our every expectation and we’re very grateful. We couldn’t be happier with our new home!

– Ricky & Kayla Bennett
Cross Country Relocation!
“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!”
– Geoff & Laura Levine
Needed to Sell NOW!
“What can I say we needed to sell fast and Gene just knocked it out the park. Working with Gene was great! He took care of everything. We needed to sell and we needed to sell now. 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…”
– Darren & Heather Gambrell
All I Can Say is WOW!
“All I can say is Wow! We needed to sell our home because we were being transferred out of the area. Unfortunately, this came at the absolute worse time of the year. December! 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!”
– Chris & Claudia Hearl
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!”
– Charles & Porsha Crawford
Everything Went Smoothly
“We were purchasing our first home and asked good friends of ours who they used to help them when buying their first home. Our friends recommended Gene and his group. We met with Gene and started our search. After looking at a number of homes we found one that was perfect. Everything went smoothly and we are now enjoying our beautiful home. 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. ”
– Ben & Meaghan Johnson
Thanks For Taking Care of Us
“Thanks for taking care of us through this entire process! We both appreciated your candid feedback and I’m confident we got this place sold due to your initial recommendations!
I’m glad the buyers are happy with the place, it was a great place to live while we were in Dayton! Likewise if there is anything that we can do (reference etc) please do not hesitate to contact us!
Thank you to you and Rebecca for all of your help! ”
– Jun & Katie Takayasu
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. After we met with Gene we knew that it was a fit. Gene was able to help us find the right home for our needs and helped us every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and are proud new homeowners. We highly recommend Gene and his group. ”
– Fred & Rachel Marion
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.”
– Christine & Kelly Sloan
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.”
– Adam & Kristin Koch
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.”
– Kevin & Danielle Bernhardt
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”
– Rick & Amy 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.”
– Eric & Sandy Ramsey
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! ”
– Joe & Rose Megery
“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!”
Tim & Jenny Cox
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.”
– Todd & Shannon Brown
Took Care Of Everything
“Working with Gene was great! He took care of everything just as I expected. This was my first home and he treated me as if I’ve purchased before. No pressure and answered all my concerns. 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.”
– Robert Slusser
– Robert Connell Jr.
“In the age of over promises and under delivery, you proved to be a dependable professional. You did exactly what you promised and more. I received exactly what you said to expect and I am TOTALLY thrilled with the results. It was a pleasure having you as my agent. I will definitely refer my family and friends to you.”
– Jennifer Keenan
Made Our Relocation Very Easy
“What can we say but thank you! We were relocating to this area from another country and your commitment to the purchase of our home was remarkable, to say the least. You made the transition very easy. Frankly, you are a passionate and hard working professional. We will definitely be
referring our friends to you.”
– Ron & Mandy Denison
Job Well Done
“I can only say thank you for a job well done. You went over and above the call of duty. You are an extremely diligent professional. I really appreciated your help. I will certainly refer my family and friends to you.”
– Ryan Krapf
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.”
– Brian & Nicole Murphy
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.”
– Bridgett Short
Working With You Made Everything Much Easier.
“Thank you again for all your help in the purchase of our new home. I had my apprehensions with buying a new home beyond just the financial aspects of it. And working with you made everything much easier. As friends of mine decide to buy homes, I will definitely be recommending you to them.”
– Scott & Victoria Kreckman
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!”
– Keith & Angie Tickle
Had Almost Given Up
“Thank You! We had almost given up on finding the right house for our family but you didn’t rest until we had succeeded. It was really easy working with you and we will be referring all our friends and family. I would tell anyone that if you’re looking for help buying or selling a home give you a call because they will definitely be well taken care off.
Thanks again, we really appreciate it..”
– Kendell & Tracy Decaille
Started Our Search On The Internet
“When we found your property search site on the internet we had simply just started our search for our new home. From the time you called to the closing day we knew we had gone with the right agent. Your proven professionalism, knowledge and friendly personality made it very easy for us to trust you with one of the biggest purchases in our life. Just wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of us.”
– Rob & Emily Zimmer
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.”
– Bret & Amie Culberg
“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.”
– Darryle & Ophelia Stephens
What A Deal
“What a deal we got on our first home! Thanks so much for all your help you really made the process easy and seamless. If you need a professional reference just send them my way. Thanks again…”
– David & JoAnna Baldwin
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.”
– Nick & Rachelle Tipton
Searching On The Internet
“We met Eugene when searching for our first home on the internet. Being first time homebuyers we were concerned about making all the right decisions. Eugene answered all of our questions and made us feel reassured during the process. We were able to get a wonderful home at a great price. We love our new home. Thank you for your hard work and effort. We really appreciate it.”
– Eric & Jami Summers
Searching On The Internet
“I met Gene through his internet website when I started my home search. I was in no hurry to buy and wanted to find the perfect property. Gene and I searched high and low and we finally found it. In the end I got just what I was looking for and we had fun through the process. I would recommend Gene and his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
– Mary Bortz
Passion And Commitment To Service
