What We Do

We are a small team doing big things in Columbus and the surrounding area. Yet, we do nothing alone. We intentionally surround ourselves with trusted partners and advisors who are experts in their respective fields.


We are RELATIONAL, not transactional.


We serve with RESPONSIBILITY to deliver EXCELLENCE.


From our humble beginnings, we have been driven by an OBLIGATION of responsibility and excellence to both those before us and those we serve.

Our Beginnings

We have deep appreciation for our founding members, Paul J. Falco, Jim Smith, and Don Kelley. Our history includes the ABCs (or ABCDs) of real estate: Appraisal, Brokerage, Consulting, and Development. Our core competency is a reflection of our Founder, Donald W. Kelley who is a renowned local real estate expert. Patrick Kelley worked side by side with Don for over 30 years and continues the legacy.  Don and Pat were born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and are grateful for the opportunity to live, work and raise their families in this community.
