The Deutsch Team
Cincinnati, OH 45238
I constantly remind myself of a quote from Warren Buffet that I like: "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it." Everyday I strive to deliver a positive experience for my clients. This is accomplished through the collaborative efforts of my team who are dedicated to the success of your housing transaction. The Deutsch Team is a group of real estate professionals motivated by success, happy clients, and a constant pursuit of personal excellence and self-improvement through our work. We also care about you, each other, and a community presence that is involved and gives back through an attitude of service. There really is no substitute for good old-fashioned hard work and persistence. Our goal is performance that produces results. In today's climate, we find that you have to push really hard to make it through the hoops and processes that sometimes look more like road blocks! This is why persisitence and mental fortitude are so necesary to making sure the deal comes together and stays together. Afterall, our mutual goal is to sit at the closing table.

The Deutsch Team
Coldwell Banker is a full-service broker. We deliver a true one-stop-shopping opportunity for home buyers and sellers. Options available to you include: home warranty, concierge service, home mortgage loans, closing preparation, title insurance, relocation assistance, contractor referral, luxury home special marketing, and many other creative and small details of support and new ways of thinking that differentiate us.
Top producing agents do not work alone. The Deutsch Team Manager, behind the scenes and often unknown to my clients, is Kathy Deutsch, who works full-time at the office and manages and leads the whole team effort with database management, marketing, finances, administration, and special events and promotions. Our team has 3 licensed realtors: myself, Sandi Wethington and Sherilyn Reynolds. Both Sandi and Sherilyn are Residential Sales Specialists on our team and they assist all our buyers. My selling and pricing experience puts me squarely in charge of all our listings. This team effort lets us focus on selling your house and getting you ready to start the looking process for a new home concurrently. We are further assisted with daily operations by two Administrative Office Assistants who both have years of experience, commitment, and top notch skills. I bring with me a small army of bright, dedicated, and professional people who are all working for you. These defined roles on our team are why can do our job best: we delegate, communicate, and focus to support your goals.
Our team is all about performance, results, and service for our clients. We deliver information and expertise during and after a real estate transition. Our reward is to earn your referral.
My vision is to provide my clients with service that goes the extra mile and to do this with integrity and honesty. I am not interested in doing a mediocre job. I like success and I like it when my clients are satisfied and happy. I will tell you the brutal truth, not just what you want to hear. My job is to help you get results and attain your goals to the best of my ability. I cannot control everything in the marketplace, but my knowledge and experience can be a benefit and resource to you. How the process unfolds, evaluating criteria and timing, and giving input to decisions in your best interest are very important to me. I view your situation as if it were my own. You won't find another realtor who cares as much as I do. One thing I can guarantee you, I will think "outside the box" and keep you involved with each step along the way.
Top producers like me agree that total market recovery, which is a more balanced interaction of supply and demand for housing, may be some time away. We feel certain that the 2015 market will be strong, with pocket communities experiencing value improvement. Still, as long as interest rates are attractive for credit worthy buyers and job security is certain, then buyers are active. IT'S STILL AN AWESOME TIME TO BUY, UPGRADE, OR CHANGE YOUR HOUSING, PERHAPS THE BEST TIME EVER IN THE LAST 30 YEARS!!
Areas of Expertise
Currently I rank among NRT's Top 1,000 sales associates, this achievement places me in the Top 2% of all NRT sales associates nationwide! Typically I am in the Top 5 at Coldwell Banker each month.
As a realtor, selling experience is perhaps my best credential. The Deutsch Team sold over 200 homes in 2014, despite market conditions, we continue to out-perform the market. Most of my listings were sold in an average of 120 days on the market. There is no magic formula, just good old-fashioned hard work and persistence. Massive marketing and getting the property price right from the start got my sellers results because buyers saw a perceived value. Compare this with the statistics that your average agent sells about 6 homes per year! This is my livelihood, I don't work part-time, and I take it seriously. Furthermore, the whole Deutsch Team works on each property as an individual case bringing buyers and sellers together. Whether the market is up or down, depending on your perspective, having an informed and posititve attitude is a necessary ingredient that experience has taught me. Real estate transactions have changed a lot, you need an agent who stays in control of your property file and keeps everyone updated with the current course of events. When you need results, performance counts!
Previous to being a realtor for CBWS, I owned two other businesses over the last 15 years, both of which I started from scratch and later sold. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and I know what it means to start small and grow something into a success. Personal sacrafice and long hours is a way of life for me. During this time, I began to personnally invest in commercial property in Western Hills, so it was natural for me to then gravitate towards real estate.
