I have been the REALTOR® of choice for buyers and sellers since 1979. I specialize in helping first-time homebuyers, new families, single families and more in Columbus real estate.
Meet Donald Payne
Columbus Real Estate Professional - Lewis Center - Gahanna OHIO
I am a certified REALTOR®, agent and broker for top-rated Columbus realty firm Vision Realty, Inc. I bring my clients 32 years of experience and dedicated service, 21 of which have been spent building a reputation of excellence at Vision Realty. I assist both buyers and sellers in the Columbus area, primarily serving two story single family home, townhouse, ranch, multi-level/split level, short sale, and bank owned property transactions.
My military background has prepared me to both meet—and exceed—these expectations and requirements. My service to my country is a unique preparation for my career, and attests to the level of proficiency, experience, and personal dedication I bring to my clients and profession, allowing me to handle real estate transactions with the savvy of a skilled businessman and the honor of a friend.
As a military and family man, I am no stranger to hard work, see the honor in service to my community and my neighbors, and it is this principle and work ethic that are the key personality traits on which I have built a solid reputation and practice. My dedication to my family, church and civic duties have endowed me with the ability to truly listen to the needs of my clients, bringing my clientele a peace of mind that is priceless. My practice has weathered the storms of the real estate market over the past decade and emerged strong—it is a home that he has built on a solid foundation of trust, respect, honor, integrity and experience.
What I Can Do For You
Buyers and Sellers Agree
I personally understand the challenges and stresses of searching for a home, brokering Columbus real estate transactions and the general upheaval of moving. My goal is to provide my clients with the type of service I would like to receive, while bringing an element of fun to a process that is generally laden with frustration.
Combining the latest in marketing information, advertising savvy, effective negotiation skills, a high-quality professional network and an in-depth knowledge of both the community and the market at large, I blend creativity and professionalism, which has earned me both a loyal client base and the respect of my peers.
Patience, persistence and integrity are the defining elements of how I handle transactions from first meeting to closing, bringing my listening skills and clear communication to every transaction to ensure a smooth, stress-free closing. I don’t simply serve my clients; I am committed to meeting the needs of my new neighbors.
When choosing a REALTOR® who is knowledgeable, experienced and personally committed to reaching your goals, one need look no further than me. What’s your vision?
