Our Philosophy - Quality Vs. Quantity

We work with a fairly sophisticated clientele that demand a high level of hands-on service. Therefore, we typically work with only a limited number of buyers and sellers at any one given time.  Our focus is to always look out for the best interests of our clients. 

We also seek to continuously educate ourselves in order to stay ahead of the curve in an always evolving real estate industry.

The "Power Of Two".

Being a husband and wife team gives our clients two full-time professionals each with specific areas of expertise and unique personalities. We both specialize in luxury homes and apply our training and experience in distinctive home sales to help you successfully buy or sell - no matter what your price point. Our associations allow us access to marketing resources not available to most agents.

Although we are business-minded, we do appreciate the personal side to our profession. We thoroughly enjoy helping our clients by being a good resource for them. Whether someone needs to find a doctor for their children, a good handyman, or just needs the name of a good local restaurant, we’ll be there to lend a helping hand. In fact, many of our clients become our friends, which is one of the greatest rewards of being in real estate. 
 

We truly enjoy our work and strive to maintain a healthy balance between work and family life.  Read on to learn about Dan and Amy, your Schuman Team!

SOLON OHIO LUXURY HOME MARKET EXEPERTS

 

As previously mentioned, luxury homes are one of our strengths. We apply our specialized training and experience in distinctive home sales to help you successfully buy or sell - no matter what your price point. Our association with the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing allows us access to marketing resources not available to most agents.

While we service the entire Cleveland real estate market, no one knows Solon, our hometown, better than us.

Solon has been ranked the #1 Suburb in the area by Cleveland Magazine two out of the last three years. While Solon's reputation locally is well-known, Solon is also gaining attention nationwide as well.  In 2009, the city was listed by Money Magazine as 23rd in its list of "Best Places to Live in the U.S." The Solon School district also ranks among the nation's best. In fact, Solon was featured in Newsweeks list of top public schools in their spring 2009 issue.

Solon is a popular place to live for those relocating to the Cleveland area for many reasons. In addition to the top ranked school system, Solon is also in close proximity to the airport and downtown, making it ideal for business executives. There are also more luxury homes in Solon than any other Cleveland area suburb. Here is a brief summary of some of Solon's most exclusive developments:

 

SOLON OHIO NEIGHBORHOODS

 

BRIAR HILL - With homes built in the late 1940's and 50's, this development offers old world charm on park-like 1-3 acre lots.  Boasting it's own pond for swimming and recreation, Briar Hill offers a bit of the country living in the heart of Solon. Homes prices range from $250,000-$500,000.

CHAGRIN HIGHLANDS - Chagrin Highlands was developed in the 1990’s and differs from many other subdivisions in that the homes here sit on at least 1 acre. The picturesque wooded lots and spacious luxury homes make this neighborhood very popular for those relocating to Cleveland from out of state, as well as local move-up buyers.

HERITAGE ESTATES - Homes in Heritage Estates were built in the 1990's. They have open floor plans and are considered large, with the average home being approximately 3500 square feet. The lot sizes are nice and often wooded as well.

HUNTINGTON WOODS - This well-situated central Solon development consists of two phases. Homes were built from the early 1990's with the last home being completed in 2000. This development has sidewalks, and is walking distance to the Solon Center for the Arts and nearby shopping. All homes here were built by Dinallo and Wittrup, custom home builders who are know throughout Solon for their high quality and customer satisfaction. Homes here range in value from $350,000-$515,000.

HERITAGE LANDING - Located conveniently off SOM Center Road, this subdivision consists of two housing styles. Part of the development contains single-family homes on about .5 acres built in the mid 1990's and range in price from $400,000-$550,000. The newer portion of Heritage contains cluster homes built after 2000 that sit on approximately .25 acres. Many of the homes here have master bedrooms on the first floor and are considered lower maintenance as the monthly fee associated with them covers lawn care and snow removal. 

NORTH HILL - Unique development in the heart of North Solon.  With homes built in the 1960's and 70's, North Hill offers homes with unbelievable charm set on beautifully wooded 1 acre lots. A true neighborhood development in every sense boasting it's own pool, tennis courts, and calendar of social events just for North Hill residents. Not your typical Solon development. Prices range from $375,000-$575,000.

NORTH PARK  -- Premiere upscale North Solon development. Homes built within the last 7 years situated on large lots ( .75 acres+ ) and priced mainly in the 700's, 800's, and 900's.  Impressive finishes and upgrades abound in these fine Solon luxury homes. 

THE PRESERVE - Like many other large subdivisions, The Preserve was also built in two phases with most homes here being built in the early to mid 1990's. A large development with sidewalks, homes here range in value from $350,000-$550,000.

ROLLINGBROOK -- One of the most distinguished developments in Solon boasting homes on at least 5 acres of land. The homes here were built in the 1980's and are priced from $650,000 + but rarely come up on the market. Located next to Signature of Solon, this development is truly a gem of Solon.

SIGNATURE OF SOLON - Signature of Solon is a prestigious gated community consisting of two phases and has 354 home sites, ranging in price from $600,000 - $1,000,000+. Homes in Signature have all been built within the last 8 years with some new construction and lots still available.

Membership to Signature Country Club is a requirement for anyone buying a home in Signature of Solon. Signature has a professionally designed 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, a pool, and one of the largest clubhouses in the state allowing for casual or fine dining, private rooms for intimate dining, or large rooms perfect for wedding, bar-mitzvahs or large corporate gatherings.

THORNBURY - Thornbury is a picturesque upscale non-golf course community with over 250 newer homes situated on beautiful lots of at least .5 acres. Home prices range from $550,000+.All homes in Thornbury have been built within the last 8 years with some new construction and lots still available. Sidewalks and location make this a very desirable community.

TIMBER TRAILS - While there are only 39 homes located here, it is a very popular neighborhood. Homes in Timber Trials were built in the mid 1990's and have open floor plans and modern amenities. While it is not considered a luxury home development like Signature or Thornbury, the homes here have a lot of the same features, but are more affordable.

Testimonials for Dan and Amy Schuman

  • Roberta
    10/28/2013

    Amy and Dan Schuman were immensely helpful in helping to stage our house for sale and navigate the problem of no comparables in the neighborhood for pricing. The house sold very quickly but we had an unusual problem with our buyer. Dan and Amy's personal touch supported us through a very anxiety-producing situation. They Professionally, they researched the legal ramifications, helped us renegotiate, and successfully closed the deal. It was a pleasure working with these 2 professionals.

    Amy and Dan have been an awesome team to work with! They were responsive and quick to schedule showings when new properties came on the market. I am a first-time home buyer in this state and they were very knowledgeable in contract negotiations, patient in explaining the specific real estate rules applicable to this state, offered strategic advice without being pushy or negative, and on top of moving the process along. Amy and Dan are a great team and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

    Amy and Dan were responsive to our needs and provided excellent direction during the decision making process. Once the contract was finalized they were very helpful with getting everything prepared for a smooth closing. They are a part of the neighborhood and were committed to helping us every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone as they know the intricacies of the real estate process and understand the city of Solon very well.

    Dan and Amy listened to our needs and developed a custom marketing plan for our home -- it focused on bringing a limited number of high potential buyers to the house instead of relying on open houses and multiple showings. In this regard, they masterfully utilized the realtor network to publicize our home and to generate enthusiasm. In addition, they accurately read a housing market that was turning positive due to increasing demand and low home inventory. They suggested an asking price $10,000 more than other recommendations we received. The net is that we sold our home quickly for a price that I don't believe we would have gotten if we were with another realtor. What more could you ask for in a realtor?

  • Monica

    Amy & Dan helped us greatly in our relocation. They were knowledgable about the areas where we looked - Hudson, Aurora, Solon, Chagrin, Bainbridge and when they did not have direct knowledge they quickly put us in touch with people who did. Dan & Amy were organized and accommodating - I toured about 20 homes in 2-3 days and enjoyed the process. They quickly put together data to assist in making an offer and handled the buying process cleanly. In addition, inspectors, painters, etc we used during the purchase process and after were excellent. I would highly recommend Dan & Amy Schuman.

    Dan and Amy Schuman provided me with outstanding real estate agent services. They were very creative in staging my home to make a good impression for potential buyers. Moreover, as I live several hundred miles away, they went the extra mile to be available for providing access to inspectors and service personnel. They kept me well informed as to progress and customer feedback. They also provided timely and appropriate recommendation for pricing and sales strategy. I highly recommend their services to anyone wanting to sell their home in the Cleveland area.

    Awesome experience. Patient. Attentive. I am hard to please and expect a lot from people who get paid to provide services. We took Amy and Dan on quite a quest to find our perfect house. And the definition of our perfect house changed as the process continued. They never complained... and then... one day... viola! the perfect house. Then they wrapped up negotiations with a win/win/win. I usually don't like to give 5 star ratings across the board. Seems unrealistic and not well thought out... but in Amy and Dan's case... they earned every single one. We have introduced them to other family members already and friends who are in the market. Thanks again you two. We love our house.

    Dan was very patient and understanding when it came to assisting my husband and I with looking for our first home. We were able to tell him what we were looking for and he would come back with a list of homes. I loved how he was able to provide information about the areas and homes... All in all our experience was good, he made us feel like our home search was as important to him as it was to us.

    I found Dan and Amy Schuman in Zillow I was reading Dan's articles on current real estate market! Then I started emailing Dan back and forth, I was very tentative in the falling market at that time and our first home has depreciated but clearly we have outgrown it already and we would like to change cities... Dan was just very patiently answering my emails, not pushing me to any decision just a nice resource for me at first... Eventually our family did start looking at homes together and we enjoyed the whole process, I remember Dan says " I am very honest " to a fault but we appreciated his honesty and assistance in the whole process, he was also very responsive and easy to communicate with...we are almost 3 years in our home now and we LOVE Twinsburg!
