Tiffin real estate

Tiffin’s real estate services continue to grow

stepping-stone

Elaine Thomson and Judy Riley

Stepping Stone Realty was started in 2010 by Elaine Thomson, with an office in Upper Sandusky. Over the past six years, Thomson has grown her businesses with satellite offices out of realtors’ homes and in July 2016, she opened an office with two additional agents in the Tiffin Mall.

“We work in Tiffin so often anyway, it just made sense,” she said. “I brought Judy Riley and Greg Sarver on to work with me here and when you have multiple people working so hard and doing such a great job, they need an office.”

Combined, the realtors in the Tiffin office bring more than 35 years of experience to the company. They have sold more than 25 listings in the past year and pride themselves on their availability to customers at any time of day, and on weekends.

“They look out for the client first and foremost,” Thomson said. Riley added, “We work well together because we have the same work ethics and values.”

Over the past year, Tiffin has seen growth in the market of home buying and selling. Listed below are other real estate services new to town:

  • Slate Real Estate – Slate opened their office at 1660 W. Market Street, Suite C, in April of 2016 with three partners; Marcia Focht, Britny Focht and Sara Wingart. Since their opening, they have added real estate professional Mike Martin to their office. Read more.

Bill is happy to be opening a business in his hometown and giving back to the community. “Every house sold in the first year will benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and we often help out with charity auctions, like the St. Francis Mardi Gras, the Mercy Hospital Gala and 4-H auctions at the county fair.”

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz sees the new venture as a credit to the community. “With all of the positive economic and community development happening in Tiffin, it is a great place to buy a home.”
