"Don has a good understanding of the market. He did a very good job of guiding us through the process of setting a realistic price, evaluating offers and closing the deal." Mary, now of Tennessee
"My daughter and I had a very positive experience with Don Shurts. Don helped us find our new home and patiently walked through over 44 homes looking for the perfect one. He pointed out features we may have missed and gave very thorough explanations about the buying process. I highly recommend Don Shurts. He is thorough, returns messages in a timely manner and has great attention to detail. We were very impressed with him. Having been in the AF and moved every 3 years, I've dealt with many different Realtors and he is by far the best Realtor I have worked with in my 24-year house searching experience. He gets an A++ for his professionalism and expertise!" - Kathy, Huber Heights
"Don and Cyndi were instrumental in our relocation to the Dayton area in early 2010. In fact, the real work started back in 2009. Don patiently worked with us looking for that perfect fit, eventually, connecting us with a builder. I would highly recommend this team not only for their patience and work ethics but more importantly, for what I have learned of their lived values." Dave & Barb, Springboro, OH
"To those of you who may be looking for a Realtor you need to look no further. Don and Cyndi Shurts were a joy to work with from the initial conversation of selling my home until the last paper was signed. My situation was a little unique in that I had already relocated out of state and then decided to put my house on the market. Don and Cyndi took care of every little detail including finding someone to fix a few minor problems with my home. They went out of their way to make it as easy for me as possible so I would not have to keep travelling back and forth from TN to OH until the house was sold. They kept me well informed of the progress with my home. Their honesty and commitment to getting me the best deal possible on my home were immeasurable. I count it a privilege to have had them represent me in the selling of my home." - Phyllis, now of Tennessee
"We recently worked with Don Shurts to buy an investment property. What an absolutely pleasant and rewarding experience! I would highly recommend Don for your real estate needs. He did his homework, was prompt, thorough, and provided an exceptional service to us. His quick response to our questions or requests was impressive and he always gave us an honest assessment. He truly took our interests to heart and was not just “trying to make the sale”. His integrity, professionalism, and personable approach leaves a lasting impression. We will definitely be going back to Don for any future real estate transactions. Thanks so much, Don!" -Barb and Bob, Beavercreek, Ohio
"I just wanted to say thank you to Don. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and looked at a wide range of houses. Don explained the process and had excellent references for inspector, and title agency. Very happy with his service and enjoying my new home! Thank you." - Lee & Viktorija, Englewood, Ohio
"If you are looking for an amazing real estate agent to work with I highly recommend Don Shurts. He is extremely knowledgeable, listens to your needs, and makes top-notch recommendations. I would have never found my home without Don’s help. Don was always available and really worked hard to help me buy my house. Everyone in Don’s network, from bankers to home inspectors, was also very hard working and professional." - Dan, Kettering
"Our experience with Cyndi Shurts was awesome. She made us feel as if we were her only customers. She encouraged and advised us over our journey to sell our home, and would recommend her to everyone. She was FABULOUS!" - Johnny & Melissa, now of Cleveland, Ohio
"Hi, I began looking for a Realtor and did a lot of research. I found Don Shurts with RE/MAX. I verified references and finally made my decision to have him list my Springboro home. Don was always professional, answered every question I had, and worked hard all the while the home was for sale and I was in another state. He handled everything. He had the home listed promptly and his pictures were great. After advertising on all the websites he is associated with, the house was under contract in two weeks. I was shocked. He continued with all necessary work and we closed under a month later. I believe he really looks out for his clients best interests and is realistic in this tight housing market. I would recommend Don Shurts to anyone that is selling their home and am sure he would do just as well for anyone looking to buy a house. Thanks Don for a great experience." - Christopher, Springboro, Ohio
"Some people think of real-estate agents as strictly salespeople. Don was more of a consultant and trusted adviser during our home-buying adventure. He is quick to listen, slow to speak, and excellent at providing advice and direction. Don helped us get into our “dream home” and we’re confident he can do the same for you." - Neal & Christy, Springboro, Ohio
"We first met Don Shurts when he spoke at a homeowners class we took downtown. He and his wife seemed very friendly and knowledgeable. We were right. Being first time home buyers, we were a little scared. Don went out of his way to make us feel more at ease and kept us informed at all times. Thanks again, we love our new home!"
Chris & Jeff, Huber Heights, Ohio
"Don & Cyndi, We want to thank you for all your help in finding us our new home. We truly appreciate everything you have done for us. You were more of a friend to us than a 'business transaction' and that means a lot; you actually cared about us and what we were looking for. We look forward to a friendship with you and your family and we really do mean it when we say "don't be a stranger." Please stop by anytime, we'd love to have you! Thanks so much!" - Justin & Jessica, Englewood Ohio
"We are a military family and didn't know anyone in the local area. I found Cyndi online, during a property information request. Several months before we moved from LA to Ohio, Cyndi answered so many questions about the local area and schools - questions she had to research and really didn't have to answer. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome and provided a lot of information. She sent houses for us to review and had houses set up when we arrived. We've had several Realtors before, but none even come close to Cyndi. If you are looking for a Realtor - Cyndi should be your number #1 choice. Thank you for making our family feel at "home" and helping us find our home!" - Dave & Tracie, Beavercreek Ohio
"We are newcomers to the area and had a limited amount of time to search for a home. Cyndi sent us a packet of info on the Dayton area and kept in touch while we awaited military orders. During the short window of time, we had to look for homes, she worked her schedule around ours, was highly organized (packets prepared & GPS programmed in her car) so we remained focused and organized during our search. She was kind, open and honest and remained with us throughout the entire nerve-wracking process of trying to buy and build long-distance. She always answered emails and correspondence quickly, too, even while on vacation! We highly recommend Cyndi, not only as a Realtor, but as a kind, caring individual, great to work with." - Keith & Lynne, Beavercreek OH
"Don & Cyndi have been a real blessing to us. We've known them for a long time and have always loved them. They helped us in every way possible and made everything go so smoothly. We are very happy in our beautiful condo! We thank them very much for all their help!" - Emma Lee, Kettering, Ohio
"Don was the perfect partner for selling the house my mom had lived in for 53 years. As an attorney in St. Louis, I have decades of experience with corporate deals but little experience in residential real estate, especially in Ohio. Don was very familiar with the local market and local practices, and when I ran out of answers, he had them. When decisions were needed, we thought things through together. He held my 83-year old mother's hand through the process when I was out of town, and explained things to her with courtesy and patience. He was always reachable and easy to deal with in person, by phone and by email. We sold the house at the right price in just a couple of months in a tough market. For my mom, this was a once-in-a-lifetime transaction that we had to get right, and I'm glad we had Don on our team." - Mike, St. Louis, MO
"Don & Cyndi, Thank you for being our Realtors. You did all that you could to sell our house as fast as possible. You answered all of our questions whenever we needed information from you. You went above and beyond what we were expecting out of a Realtor." - John & Sue, now of North Carolina
"I just wanted to thank you for helping us purchase our 1st investment property. I appreciate how you kept us informed every step of the way. Even though we were on vacation for a few weeks before the closing, you kept us informed and all the details together for us. Because of your hard work, the entire transaction went smoothly. We didn't have all the troublesome, last-minute demands that we have had in our previous home buying experiences. Thank you so much for everything you did to make our buying process a wonderful experience!" - Dennis & Cheryl, now of Florida
"Thank you, for aiding in the sale of our home. You are a true professional. Through your careful planning and marketing strategy, you allowed my wife and myself to focus on our move to Chicago. You removed all stress from us and allowed us to spend the majority of our time looking for our new house in Chicago. You also put our number one concern first, our pets! As my wife and I have no children, our cats are our children. You took this into consideration while showing our house, and once again removed any reservations we had. Thank you so much for your dedication to your profession!" - Todd & Deborah, now of Chicago, Illinois
"Where do we start?! You have been wonderful! The process of buying your first home can be intimidating & overwhelming, but you were there every step of the way. You went above and beyond what I would have expected from a Realtor.You returned every phone call, every email, and answered every question! Not only did you show us every house you possibly could, you were non-judgmental and supportive every step of the way! You paid attention to details and listened to every "want" that we had & found our dream starter home and even welcomed us into it with a New Homeowners Welcome Basket that had everything we needed for a new home. You go the extra mile and think of things that we couldn't through the whole process. I will recommend you & your husband to family, friends, co-workers, anyone who is in need of a new home because you truly are our real estate consultant for life! From the bottom of my heart, Kimberly." - Kimberly, Kettering
"Dear Don and Cyndi, I still can't believe the way both of you went above and beyond any of my expectations and surpassed all prior experiences of working with a Realtor. You guys took me under your wing as if I were a family member. I'll never ask another real estate question of anyone but you all. (Even if I have to call cross country!) Love you guys, Bonnie" - Bonnie, Miamisburg, Ohio
"As a home inspector and faculty member of Hondros Real Estate College, I have the opportunity to work with numerous real estate professionals in the Dayton Ohio real estate market. Through years of experience with many agents, I must state without hesitation that Don and Cyndi are by far the "Best of the Best" in professionalism, ethics, and experience of the Dayton home buying and selling professionals. While most real estate agents prefer to be absent from the home inspection process, Don and Cyndi have never failed to miss one. This fact alone proves to me that they TRULY have their Dayton area clients best interest at heart. The home inspection process is often tedious and long, but Don and Cyndi remain steadfast to assist their clients through asking experienced questions on their behalf (and sometimes in their absence) that might otherwise have gone unanswered, and to allow me to perform my job for their clients unhindered. Through observing numerous times the unrivaled client relationship that Don and Cyndi have, I can assure you that they both have received my respect and referral above ALL others in the Dayton Ohio area." - Bill, BC Warner Inspections & Thermal Imaging
"I really can't say enough about Don. My husband and I are first time home buyers, and we weren't sure of what the market had to offer us. Don came in like a knight in shining armor-- offering patience, guidance and advice. He acted more like a friend than a person in sales. He was never pushy, always kind and acted like we were his only (and most important) clients. I would recommend Don and Cyndi to anyone looking to buy a home."
"I found Cyndi by just browsing a home sale ad, and we stuck with her through our house hunting ordeal! Cyndi was so helpful, understanding and very, very, patient with me, which is saying a lot from a pregnant woman!! She helped me to understand what we were signing for and even helped us out with a terrific home inspector! I will recommend her to anyone looking for a home. I truly feel like we walked away with a "home" and not just a house, and a gained a very dear friend in the process!"
"We worked with Don & Cyndi to sell our home. They were excellent. Very professional and down to earth. They made us feel like we were their only clients. We really liked the way that they are very current in their advertising, even making a YouTube video of our house, to get it seen by as many people as possible. We would recommend them to anyone!"
"Don Shurts is an amazing Realtor. He was always available to answer all of our questions, big or small. We really wanted a Realtor that wasn’t going to be pushy or try to upsell us into a bigger home, and Don fits this requirement. When we toured different homes he gave his honest opinion, from a personal level, and not from a “business transaction” level. It was almost as if he was purchasing the house with us. He really made us feel like we were his only clients and his only priority. We have dealt with other Realtors in the past and none of them come close to the same level of service that Don provided us. He found out we had a water leak after we purchased our home and Don called us to find out what was going on and wanted to make sure it was right, he didn’t just leave us hanging once the transaction was complete. We highly recommend him and feel he is an exceptional Realtor."
"My husband and I worked with Cyndi to find our first home. Cyndi was fantastic! She was always very prepared and knowledgeable about the homes we viewed, the neighborhoods, and the market. As first time buyers, we definitely benefited from her expertise. She recommended houses that not only fit our criteria but our personality and needs. She kept us very up-to-date with houses that came on the market and was extremely responsive when it came to emails, phone calls, and text messages. After months of searching, we finally found the home that fit our family. She was wonderful when it came to negotiating the price and handling all of the details when we went under contract. I highly recommend Cyndi Shurts!" - Kat, Troy
"Don managed the process of selling our home through every bump we had along the way, and also managed to keep a very nervous seller (me) calm as my husband and I anxiously waited for our Dayton house to sell so that we were able to move into the house we had a contingent offer on in CA. His marketing efforts and the online presence he created for our house resulted in an outstanding offer from a couple from VA who fell in love with our place when they saw the pictures online. I highly recommend calling Don and Cyndi if you want a professional, knowledgeable and highly experienced team to sell your house." - Dave & Lillian, Dayton
"From the first time Don sat down with our family, we knew we could trust him. He had done his homework and came prepared to answer our questions and to educate us on every step of the process. His extensive experience selling homes in our area gave us confidence that he knew the market well and would give us all the information we needed to make the best decisions. His wisdom regarding pricing as well as his negotiating skills resulted in selling our home after just 2 weeks on the market! We were grateful for his caring nature as well as his knowledge and expertise. Don comes highly recommended by our family!" - Mr & Mrs. Z, Kettering
"Don was a fantastic Realtor. He patiently helped us work through the sale of our house, we never met in person, I trusted him fully with the transaction, and would highly recommend him to anyone."
"We are so pleased with the service we received from Cyndi. She assisted us in buying a home from across the country and was so accommodating and helpful. She went above and beyond to find the right home for us. You won't be disappointed!"
"We were lucky enough to find Cyndi after doing a Google search for Realtors in Dayton, who knew we would be so lucky to find her first. Cyndi exceeded any expectations we had for our Realtor. This is the first home we have purchased, so we had a lot of questions. Cyndi was more than willing to guide us through the daunting process, questions and all. Cyndi made herself available at all times. She even took the time to spend 4 days with us when we visited Dayton to show us around. My husband and I would highly recommend Cyndi, her work ethic and commitment to her customers is something that is becoming more and more scarce in today's society."
"We were living in a different state and Cyndi took extensive video of different homes for us to view. She was always quick to respond to our emails/phone calls."
"My husband and I recently worked with Don Shurts to sell our house in Kettering. Don did a fantastic job of helping us get the most value from our property despite a tough market. He was very easy to work with and always helpful." - Laura, Kettering
"Don did an excellent job helping my husband and I find and buy our first home. Patient, knowledgeable, and responsive - that's what you want in your Realtor! I would most definitely recommend him to any of my family and friends." Vickie, Englewood
"Don treated us like family. He was honest and worked on our behalf. He was patient and helpful and didn't push in any way. Don negotiated well for us and we were able to get the price and compromise we wanted from the seller."
"We weren't buying a million dollar home, but Don treated us like we were and to us, that's priceless."
"In past 2 years we have sold 2 homes using Don and the experience could not have been better. Not only did we receive the price target we were looking the process went very smooth. Don handled everything from listing to closing in a very professional manner keeping us well informed of every step in the process. We highly recommend Don for anyone selling or buying a home." - Greg & Melissa, Bellbrook
"Don sold our home in Xenia for us. He kept up posted, prepared us for closing, and walked us through the whole process. He and his wife are top-notch and, in our opinion, you can not find a better Realtor. Oh, yes, one more thing. Because Don & Cyndi are so well known, respected, and have great contacts our house sold within 45 days and near the asking price. We could not possibly be happier with the wise advice given and superb service rendered." - Don & Betty, Xenia
"Don is a fantastic Realtor. He was the most responsive of any agent I've ever worked with, even though we live on opposite sides of the country and have never met in person."
"My wife and I recently worked with Don Shurts to sell our house in Kettering. Don did a fantastic job of helping us get the most value from our property despite a tough market. We interviewed four local Realtors as part of our process - the other three were very pessimistic and one even suggested we look at doing a deed in lieu of foreclosure. Don had a positive attitude and cautioned us not to sell ourselves too short. I am so glad we chose Don. He helped us get feedback from potential buyers on our house, which revealed a key problem - buyers didn't think the kitchen was big enough for a kitchen table, which limited the value of our four-bedroom home. Don suggested a change to the kitchen layout that solved the problem and I think helped us get an offer and a sale! I would recommend Don to anyone looking for a Realtors who is highly professional, has a great attitude, and has great ideas to help get a property sold." - Rodney & Laura, Kettering
"Greatest Realtors ever! Highly recommended. Cares more about making the customer happy than making a quick buck..."
"Don Shurts did a great job in helping us find a suitable home in Xenia, Ohio. We looked and looked and Don was always helpful and patient. We can recommend him without hesitation or reservations."
"Working with Don and Cyndi Shurts was truly a pleasure from beginning to the end and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for an honest and informative buyer's agent. You will not be disappointed."
"Fantastic agent, fantastic service! Fact - we sold our house in 31 days even though there were 5 other almost identical houses for sale on the same street. No one else sold that fast! We owe a huge thank you to Don and Cindi!"
"Don Shurts was wonderful to work with. He listened closely to what we were looking for and lined up homes that were appropriate. He was very thorough in his explanations and gave us his undivided attention. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we looked in. He explained things that we were unfamiliar with and had a great sense of humor. He ensured no glitches occurred and the closings went smoothly. I bought a house with his help and sold a house with his help. Cyndi staged our home for sale and we got an offer 36 days after the house was listed. We were very impressed with their professionalism and expertise. We highly recommend Don and Cyndi Shurts as Realtors."
"Having purchased two properties from Don Shurts within two years we can affirm that he does excellent work. He quickly understood the type of property we were looking for and did his homework to make the process as quick and painless as possible. It's a shame the rating scale only goes to 5's as we would have liked to rate his knowledge, helpfulness and work quality even higher." Gail & Stuart, Beavercreek
"We are beyond pleased with the service we received from Cyndi. She helped us buy a home from across the country, and made the process so easy for us. She video previewed homes, and we came to trust her opinion so much that we ended up buying a home without seeing it in person. She is so friendly and happy, and just a joy to work with. You won't be disappointed." - Nate & Marci, Springboro
"My husband and I had to do the majority of our house shopping and closing from a distance. Cyndi made buying our first home simple and easy. Her knowledge of the local area helped immensely when trying to decide on a location that would fit our needs and still be close to both of our jobs. Cyndi was available to answer all of our questions, day or night. When going over our contracts I think we might have spoken more than 20 times in a single day. She was always patient and willing to take the time to make sure we understood everything we were signing and agreeing to. Finally, Cyndi went above and beyond what we expected from a Realtors. She went ahead and got multiple roof estimates when she found out we would need repairs. She also checked up on us after we had moved in. We loved working with Cyndi and we would recommend her with the highest accolades to anyone looking for a home in the Dayton area."
"Cyndi was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us find our house. She is dedicated to her work and was willing to help in any way possible."
"Cyndi was a fabulous real estate agent. We bought a HAP program house, and she was so on top of all the paperwork that had to be completed. She was helpful, prompt, and had great communication skills with all parties involved. She was also pro-active, which allowed us to close on time. We will recommend her to anyone in need of agent!" - Aaron & Jessica, Beavercreek
"Cyndi is great at what she does. I cannot think of a single area where there needed to be an improvement on her part. Smart, professional, efficient, kind, courteous, all these words describe Cyndi and what you can expect working with her. Oh, and VERY patient! My husband is an engineer and had a million questions and she didn't mind answering each one. If there was anything she wasn't sure about, she would find out and get back with us right away. We both highly recommend her."
"Cyndi was awesome, we had to purchase our home long distance and she made it painless. She searched until she found us homes that met our needs. When we chose the one we loved she worked through all the issues. We are living in the house we love. Cyndi and Don are good people who work hard to make your house buying experience awesome."
"Cyndi Shurts was awesome. We could not have imagined going through the sale of our home with anyone that could have provided the effort, guidance, and support that Cyndi Shurts provided on an everyday basis. Thank you so much, we could not have done it without you!"
"Cyndi Shurts was the 'perfect' real estate agent. Not only is she a true professional, but she went above and beyond to make sure our family found the home we were looking for. Instead of pushing us in a particular location or toward a certain home, she went back to the drawing board a number of times to find homes that would meet our needs to show us. Cyndi met us on the weekend and during the week, answered questions via telephone and email, and built her schedule around ours. Once we had picked a home, she helped us with the paperwork, inspections, etc., and even left us a super-nice home welcoming gift. Our transition into our new home was made a lot easier because of Cyndi. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to my friends or anyone new coming into this area. And best of all, our family maintains communication with Cyndi because she was our agent, but also because we consider her a very special friend."
"Dreams really do come true! At least they did for me. After years of bad stuff in my life, I finally got my Dream Home! With the help of the Lord God and Don & Cyndi Shurts! Exactly in that order. I had lost my husband, my animals, my house and a lot of other relatives in 2001. I had some health problems also. I had to live on a very small disability check in an apartment for several years. I met Don and Cyndi Shurts from a sign on a street corner. For Real! I was out for a Sunday drive and something said turn here. I did and never regretted it. They were pastors of a church right down the street from my new apartment. Anyhow, I got to know them and as years progressed and their church moved and business grew, I lost touch. I had been praying with everything in me for a place of my own.The stress of apartment living was really getting to me. I was on the internet each night looking at houses and praying for my own. One day in 2008, I decided to apply for a loan and was surprised to find that I had qualified. I had kept a business card of Don's and gave him a call. He answered the phone and told me who he was currently with RE/MAX VICTORY. And as it happened the office was across the street from where I lived! Don guided me every step of the way and always took my calls. Even in the evening and when I would get anxious and panic. He did not always answer immediately but I always got a call back within a few hours. Don even explained the whole house buying process to me and my Mom, also sitting in the office. He offered refreshments and gave me several pamphlets to read and study. He even recommended an excellent home inspector. Don was never pushy and very helpful. He never made me feel less than important, even with my endless questions. The first time I went to their website, I saw this huge mansion and horses etc. The American Dream like that I could never afford (I wish someday). Don & Cyndi deal with houses that cost hundreds of thousands, and my house was under the fifty thousand mark. But, I always felt respected and appreciated! Several times Don came to my apartment and picked me up and took me all over the city looking at twelve houses one time, seven another, and at least ten another time. He would look at the listings and send me the list to look over and give him feedback on which ones I'd like to see. It was truly an adventure and we saw some firsts for both of us in house decor and construction. I did not get the first house I had my heart set on, or the second one. I was disappointed a few times before I found the right one, that had the right feel for me. Each time Don was encouraging and upbeat and told me not to give up just yet.
I do have to Thank Cyndi for letting me take up so much of Don's time. When I finally found the right house for me, Don was there to see it from a male perspective. Women look at cute and cozy stuff. Men look at the structure, roof, etc. It helped to have a fresh set of eyes. Don was experienced in real estate and has had hands-on experience as a homeowner. Don knew the right questions to ask and negotiated the price to where I could afford it. He was even there for the house inspection, asked questions and explained the results! He was even there at the closing! As a widow, it was comforting knowing that Don was my guardian angel through the whole process of finding, buying and purchasing my house. The night I got my house, I came home to find a nice welcome basket from Don and Cyndi and even my first house plant! It had lots of useful things in it that I needed to start setting up the house with! It was such a thoughtful gesture!I even got a nice Christmas card and calendar! I would recommend these two people, Don & Cyndi Shurts to anyone! You don't have to be rich to be treated like royalty! They treat everyone like one of the family! My dream really did come true! Maybe someday my finances will allow the huge house with the horses. I will go back to Don & Cyndi for that too. You got to have a dream... God brings people into your life for a reason. I am very blessed to have my new house and I am very happy! God Bless Don & Cyndi & their family!" - Chris, Dayton Ohio
