Top 100 People in Real Estate: What Sets Cutler's Dominic J. Fonte Jr. Apart

Top 100 People in Real Estate - Dominic Fonte - Cutler Real EstateAt Cutler Real Estate, we know people make the biggest difference here in Northeast Ohio. Building a team of real estate experts who care is the key to helping our buyers and sellers. When someone in our team stands out, we celebrate their achievements alongside them.

Realtor Dominic J. Fonte Jr., an important part of the Cutler Real Estate team, was recently featured in Top 100 People in Real Estate Magazine. This isn't the first time Dominic's hard work, dedication, and care have gotten attention from industry press, but it is one of the biggest awards out there.

A Leader in Ohio Real Estate

Top 100 People is a publisher that shines a spotlight on thought leaders in various professional fields such as law and finance. A panel of distinguished judges selects the individuals featured in each publication. With so many luminaries out there, the choice is always a difficult one.

Dominic was selected from a competitive field of dozens of real estate professionals from all around the United States. The Top 100 People in Real Estate Magazine write-up lauds him for his hard work and his down-to-earth nature, focusing on what's most important: The people he serves.

With 30 years of experience and more than 3,000 transactions behind him, Dominic has built his career brick by brick. In addition to his work with Cutler Real Estate, he is also known for his eponymous firm, Dominic Fonte & Associates, which has earned hundreds of high-flying reviews and testimonials.

The Power of the Personal Touch in Real Estate

Describing his approach to real estate leadership, Dominic says, "an informed decision-maker is a happy decision-maker." Long before today's modern real estate marketing, Dominic was on the cutting edge of his field by building his entire approach around his clients and their specific needs.

Every client is unique, so Dominic prides himself on the personal touch.

For years, a dedication to personal service has been at the forefront of Dominic's philosophy. "We take whatever time is needed to make sure [our clients] feel calm and confident throughout the process," he's quoted as saying. That includes communication before, during, and after a transaction.

With more than 330 reviews on the Cutler Real Estate website alone, it's clear that Dominic has made a strong impression. "Dominic is the real deal," raves one customer. "He did an AMAZING job." Another says: "Dominic made the experience of selling ... very seamless and stress-free."

He has also been called "a real pleasure to work with" and "a true professional."

Although he is very approachable, Dominic's sharp intellect helps him look beyond the obvious so his clients can make the most of any market conditions. He has helped buyers and sellers alike navigate major events like the Gulf War, 2008 recession, and the COVID-19 pandemic. He excels at providing advice about opportunities at times when it is difficult for the average person to uncover the full truth about the market.

A Real Estate Thought Leader

Dominic's personal traits have been a big part of his success in real estate. From the beginning, he was self-motivated and eager to innovate. Living in North Canton with his family, he believes others would describe him as "honest," one of the most important aspects of connecting with others in real estate.

Dominic attributes some of his success to his deep roots in the area. Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, his five children have been through the North Canton area school system. Highly involved in the community ever since attaining Eagle Scout status as a young man, he has served on the North Canton city council for close to a decade.

All in all, we here at Cutler Real Estate are honored to work with Dominic J. Fonte Jr.! We look forward to standing beside him for many years and hundreds of transactions to come. We believe we can speak for the Northeast Ohio real estate community when we salute Dominic for his tireless efforts.

If you need real estate insights, you can count on Dominic and the rest of the Cutler Real Estate team are here to serve you. Contact us today to learn more or get started.

Cutler Realtor Jim Camp Brings Awareness with Daffodils Across Ohio

The Ohio state flower is the carnation, but there are plenty of other beautiful flowers adding their colors to life throughout the state. One of them is the daffodil. Also known as the narcissus, the daffodil has been a symbol of rebirth for thousands of years because it's one of the first flowers seen every spring.

Realtor Jim Camp of Cutler Real Estate wanted to find a way to honor the nearly 800,000 Americans who have perished due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That figure includes nearly 27,000 Ohioans. Virtually everyone has a friend, neighbor, or family member who has suffered.

Jim is well known as a team player. He believes it's important to come together to tackle big challenges. It's just as crucial to remember our past and where we've come from. As the holiday season arrives, so many people will be thinking about those they've lost. Jim wanted to do his part for their memory.

Daffodils Across Ohio - Fairlawn, OH - Cutler Real Estate

Jim, the son of a broker, was licensed in Philadelphia at age 18. He settled in Ohio soon afterward and first held his Ohio brokerage license in 1978. Since then, he has had the opportunity to touch the lives of thousands of families and had received heartbreaking news from many people throughout 2020-2021.

To recognize the hard work of frontline workers as well as those lost from Northeast Ohio to Columbus to Cincinnati and beyond, Jim proposed the "Daffodils Across Ohio" service project. The goal was simple: Gather enough daffodils so they could be planted and provide new life all throughout Ohio.

The Buckeye State will now bloom with thousands of daffodils thanks to Jim and his colleagues.

Collecting More Than 14,000 Daffodils

Jim's vision was quickly embraced by his team at Cutler Real Estate. But everyone knew they had to go beyond their own office, even their own network, to make the biggest impact possible. Word spread quickly from Cutler Real Estate through Ohio's community of REALTORS.

All in all, Realtors purchased and planted more than 14,000 daffodil bulbs.

In late November, a donation of 500 bulbs was received at Ohio's statehouse in a grand ceremony. Gov. Mike DeWine, Sen. Jay Hottinger, and a variety of other community figures accepted the donation on behalf of state residents. Jim noted that his idea was inspired by Gov. DeWine's 2019 inauguration speech, where he related that his father, then battling cancer, encouraged his children to plant daffodils in the fall so they would remember him in the spring.

Daffodil Donation - Cutler Real Estate

In 2020, Jim received the Mary L. Pollock Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades of tireless service to the real estate profession. "Daffodils Across Ohio" is poised to become another important part of his legacy. It also speaks to the dedication, camaraderie, and community spirit of Ohio's REALTORS®.

Ohio REALTORS® President Seth Task noted that the response of the state's real estate professionals to "Daffodils Across Ohio" was "remarkable." He also thanked Jim for his unique contributions, saying, "each spring, hundreds of daffodils will emerge across the grounds of our beautiful Statehouse." This would serve" as a reminder of our loss and tribute to the can-do spirit of the first-responders and health care professionals."

Daffodils Across Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Here at Cutler Real Estate, we believe in making our community better one day at a time. Homeownership is the way to foster greater stability and commitment within the community. It means a better future for children and more opportunities to start a business, get an education, and advance together.

Don't Curse the Wind ... Adjust Your Sails

Agent Interview - Cutler Real Estate

Cutler Real Estate's own Dominic Fonte shared his insight in a recent REAL Pros 20 Minute Webinar Series by REAL Trends discussing today's ever-evolving real estate environment.

Fonte was joined by REAL Trends Vice President Scott Wright, William Coin of Beverly-Hanks REALTORS®, and Wendy Moore of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Drysdale Properties in an effort to highlight how successful agents are adjusting to the current business climate.

REAL Trends provides brokerage services such as consulting, valuations, mergers and acquisitions, and business planning. Brokerages and agents alike look to REAL Trends as a source for news, analysis, and information on the residential brokerage industry. The weekly Trendsetters Agent Panel is just one more way REAL Trends is helping those in the industry move their businesses forward.

Importance of Video

Wright asked how agents like Fonte have stayed connected to clients through the COVID-19 health crisis. Fonte said he continues to have success with email videos as a means of keeping in touch with clients, even if they don't plan to buy or sell a home right now.

"Video's huge," he said. "I think when people have a traumatic experience like 9/11, or 2008, or the Gulf War, or what's happening now, it's not our normal lifestyle, and everyone's freaked out … but the old-timers we keep plugging away.

"How I stay connected is instead of doing email, I do email videos, and I make sure I'm reaching out to them," he continues. "Not necessarily if they want to buy or sell, although if they want to of course we'll help them do that. But just educating them, seeing how they're doing, see how their families are, are they getting their yard work done. Just to try to be there and just provide what's really happening from our perspective if they are in the market, how do they do that in a safe manner."

Preparing for a Rebound

With the country beginning to open up again following the shutdown in many states, Wright asked how agents are preparing for a rebound in the market. For Fonte, it's a matter of top-of-mind awareness and reassuring buyers and sellers.

"It's just a matter of educating people like how we're doing showings," Fonte explained. "If you're not willing to want to go out, we understand that, but if you do have to go out—say your mom has to go in a nursing home and you have to sell her home, how do you do that in a safe manner? Or if you're relocating out of state because you have to take another job. They can't wait for the coronavirus.

"I try to reassure them that if you are in a position where you have to do something, I'm here for you," he continues, "and here are the three or four things we're doing as far as protections, not overlapping showings, and how we also do the virtual walk-through."

Consistent Communication

While no one can be totally prepared for an event such as a global health pandemic, seasoned agents know what it takes to keep their businesses moving forward. For Fonte, that means consistently staying in touch with the database of customers.

"You want to make sure you don't just have a real estate experience with them and forget them," he explains. "You want them on a plan, an action plan, a workflow. I find the quickest way to do it is by video because I can blast out 80 short videos in an hour or so because you're not really stuck on the phone. Then if it's an older person or if it's someone who doesn't use email, you can use texting, and you can also make a phone call. Many times, people don't answer live, you can just leave them something short and sweet and compelling, to let them know you're thinking of them."

Wright also asked how each agent has, and continues to deal with, the stress of the health crisis, and Fonte was quick to point out that adapting is the best way to approach such an event.

"We have great bike trails and walking trails," he said. "I have a hybrid bike so I can go 15 miles and then on the way back, I can cheat a little bit. I'm all about nature, birds singing, and having a little bit of fun.

"So, it just helps you recharge your batteries and remember, all this hard work we do, what's it's really about?" he concludes. "I'm not cursing the wind, I'm adjusting my sails."

Promoting Your Home Online Amidst Social Distancing

Virtual Home Tours & Open Houses - Cutler Real Estate

With stay-at-home directives and social distancing in place, the real estate market needs to get creative with facilitating the buying and selling of homes. Cutler Real Estate is doing just that by offering virtual open houses that allow sellers to showcase their properties online and enable buyers to get an inside look at homes for sale—all while complying with efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Learn more about virtual showings and open houses, how your home is marketed online, and ways to get your home ready for the best results.

What Is a Virtual Showing?

Our Realtors now have the ability to offer a "Tour via Video Chat" request option to your online listing. Buyers are afforded the convenience of choosing a date and time to view the home via Skype, Zoom, Google Duo, or WhatsApp. Once the request is submitted, the Realtor will contact the interested buyer to confirm the virtual showing.

Virtual Showing Request - Cutler Real Estate

At the appointed time, the Realtor will connect with the interested buyers via their preferred video app and provide them with a tour of the home and property in real time. This method allows all interested parties to maintain social distancing, while still giving buyers a detailed look at the home.

What Is a Virtual Open House?

A virtual open house essentially moves a traditional, in-person open house online. Your Realtor captures your property and home interior via video, then promotes that video presentation via Facebook or YouTube.

This format allows your Realtor to showcase the best features of not just your home but your property and neighborhood as well. The video presentation can highlight street views, an open-concept layout, a finished basement, and a remodeled kitchen. Your virtual tour can also shine a spotlight on sought-after outdoor areas, such as a pool, outbuilding, or patio.

Virtual open houses also offer buyers and sellers convenience. For sellers, your Realtor can schedule a video session at your convenience with minimal, if any, social contact. In turn, homebuyers can watch a virtual open house when it premieres on Facebook or YouTube, or they can choose to watch it online at a later time.

How Is My Virtual Open House Promoted Online?

The next step is promoting your virtual open house, and this is where Facebook and YouTube come into play. Your Realtor will prepare a 15- to 20-minute presentation from video footage of your property, then upload it to either YouTube or Facebook. Both platforms utilize "premiere" features to allow for the scheduling of a video "go-live" date.

Once added to YouTube, your virtual open house will feature a countdown to the premiere of the video. Your Realtor will then promote the virtual open house via Facebook and other social media platforms to generate interest in the event. Premiering the virtual open house video on Facebook is similar and allows your Realtor to easily promote the video presentation to a targeted audience.

Once a virtual open house video is uploaded, your home's listing page will feature a virtual open house link at the top in red, further showcasing the upcoming presentation.

Virtual Open House - Cutler Real Estate


During the premiere of the virtual open house video on YouTube or Facebook, your Realtor will have the opportunity to interact with commenters in real time, answering any questions they have on your home. Potential buyers will appreciate the ability to communicate with the Realtor, as well as the opportunity to see a property without leaving their home.

How Should I Get My Home Ready?

Just as you would with an in-person open house or showing, you should thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom, including areas such as closets, pantry, and laundry room. A virtual open house includes all aspects of your property, so you'll need to make sure the outside looks as spotless as the inside.

A virtual open house video provides your Realtor with a way to focus on the "wow" factor your home offers. Whether it's a great home office or an updated kitchen, be sure to spend extra time preparing those areas.

Once everything is video ready inside and out, use this checklist on the day of the video shoot:

Interior

  • Turn on all lighting, including under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen.
  • Make sure televisions are turned off, and cords are out of sight.
  • Open curtains to let in natural light.
  • Pull blinds to the same height.
  • Do one last sweep around the house to clear away any clutter.

Exterior

  • Limit seasonal decorations.
  • Ensure any outdoor furniture is clean.
  • Put the trash can out of sight.
  • Pull any stray weeds.
  • Park vehicles away from the house to clear the driveway and garage.

Navigating Real Estate in a COVID-19 World

COVID-19 Response - Cutler Real Estate


A message from Cutler Real Estate President Andy Camp:

As we all face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, our first priority at Cutler Real Estate is the health of our clients, employees and the communities where we live and work. We are also committed to supporting our clients through this challenging time.

Many of our clients are still out looking at homes, putting their homes on the market, writing contracts, and closing on life's biggest transaction. As a company, we will be there for our clients.

In order to continue to provide the same high level of support to our clients, our entire organization will have to adapt, adjust and work together like never before.

Real Estate in Times of Uncertainty

Much of the news these past few weeks has been regarding the unfortunate events and circumstances caused by COVID-19. Day-by-day and hour-by-hour, news is changing on how to best address the COVID-19 matter.

As your trusted Realtor, I'll stick to real estate and defer to experts like the CDC for how to best address your health and safety. I don't want to minimize the effect this current situation has on other aspects of life, but I wanted to offer some insights and reassurance regarding my area of experience – real estate.

You might be worried about your home's value at this time of economic upheaval. That's understandable and completely valid. The good news is that for most homeowners, the best course of action, as well as the easiest, is to do absolutely nothing. Just sit tight, be thankful that you have a nice place to gather with your loved ones, work from home, or even self-quarantine if needed. At times like this, it becomes abundantly clear that your home is so much more than just an investment.

Fortunately, real estate has historically proven to be a relatively stable and sound investment in times of crisis. For example, Dr. Marci Rossell, a leading economist who specializes in real estate, noted that the housing markets remained stable in the aftermath of 9/11.

The Economic Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Real Estate Market from LeadingRE on Vimeo.

Housing Market Graph - Cutler Real Estate

In the days and weeks following 9/11, there was a real sense of panic and uncertainty. Airlines completely shut down, conferences and events were canceled, oil and stock prices became hyper-volatile, and news stories predicted economic activity could grind to a halt for quarters if not years. Sound familiar?

Fortunately, the shock that 9/11 delivered to the world economy was short-lived. It was a classic V-shaped economic deceleration characterized by a rapid decline followed by a rapid recovery. Housing markets were the least impacted by 9/11. Unlike the stock and bond markets, real estate markets move very slowly. At a time of economic uncertainty and volatility, based on past events it's a pretty safe bet that real estate will remain a bastion of stability.

For those who are actively in the real estate market currently and wondering how the pandemic will affect buying or selling:

Buying A Home

  • We live in a digital age of real estate where information is abundant and available at your fingertips, without even leaving your home. Set up a Homefinder Account to get started.
  • This current COVID-19 crisis may actually slow down the market enough for an active buyer to have a greater opportunity to secure a home purchase, with less competition from other buyers.
  • The recent rate reductions and questions about how the economy will impact a buyer purchase are valid. It is more important than ever to have a trusted mortgage partner to help guide through these times.  Fortunately, I can introduce you to an expert.

Selling a Home

  • Cutler Real Estate has the goal of always being a leader in real estate marketing technology. In times like these our forward-leaning marketing tools and strategies are helping sellers even more than anticipated.
  • Our selling system incorporates the abilities for home buyers to view your home digitally in every manner possible. We know buyers are searching voraciously online and we ensure your home stands out in their searches.
  • In days and weeks ahead, we may see buyers making offers on our well marketed homes without physical showings. This is nothing new to us as we have provided this virtual opportunity for buyers and sellers for years, and on occasion we have worked with out of state buyers who make sight unseen offers.

The Impact of Federal Reserve Actions on Mortgages

  • The Federal Reserve has recently made some large interest rate cuts. However, it is important to remember that these cuts do not necessarily impact mortgage rates.
  • We should hopefully see rate lock options stabilize. The question looms where mortgage rates will settle, but we should hopefully see the large swings slow down.

In these days and weeks ahead as news continues to come out about COVID-19, we want you to know that as your trusted real estate adviser we are on the front lines of the market. There are a lot of unknowns, but we will closely monitor the situation and are always available for any of your real estate needs, questions, or concerns.

Wash those hands and give us a call. We welcome the opportunity to be of assistance.

A Complete First-Time Home Buyer's Guide

Buying a home is both an exhilarating and stressful experience—whether you're a real estate aficionado or are delving into the home buying process for the first time. But with the right support system and a little help from some trusted professionals, you'll be settling in to your dream home before you know it!  To help you through the home buying process, we created a first-time home buyer's guide. This guide will break down the steps of buying a home so you can start the process feeling completely prepared. From figuring out your budget to finally being handed the keys—we've got some helpful tips for you right here!   

First Steps:

1.) Ask yourself: "Is it really time for me to buy a home?" 

Before you even start looking, it's important to consider why you want to buy a home. Because you've heard that renting costs more than mortgage payments? Or maybe because you are planning on living in the area for a longer period of time? By taking a moment to consider why you want to buy a home will allow you to narrow down your wishlist and will help you make important decisions down the road.   

2.) Start saving early 

While you may have heard that you'll be required to put 20 percent down on a home, many lenders will now permit much less, with some first-time homebuyer programs allowing as little as 3 percent down. Before you embark on your home search, we recommend sitting down with a mortgage agent to help determine your buying power. They'll be able to help you figure out what you can afford and how much you should put towards a down payment. They can also help you get pre-approved for a mortgage, which will put you at a massive advantage when submitting an offer on a home.  

3.) Define your goals

Break out the yellow notepad and make a list of all your wants and needs! What is it that your dream home absolutely has to have and what are the things that you could live without? Some examples include: how many bedrooms you need, what neighborhood you would like to live in, and how much work you want to put into your new home. Knowing your preferences before going into your official home search will help you narrow down the list of prospective homes.   

4.) Pick an agent

Buying a home, especially for the first time, can be an incredibly stressful experience. To help you through the process, you'll want a Cutler Real Estate professional by your side! Your agent will help guide you through your home search, purchase agreements, inspections, closing, and anything else that arises during your home buying journey. You can find a full list of our knowledgeable and qualified agents here or, contact us and we'll be able to help find the perfect agent for you!   

Finding Your Dream Home 

1.) The Search

First Time Home Buyers Guide At this point in the process, you and your Cutler agent will start touring homes around the area. During this time, make sure to take advantage of one of our many helpful, home search tools. Use our Map Search Tool to easily find homes that fall within your specific criteria in a specific area. And create a free account with Cutler Real Estate to get real-time property alerts sent directly to your inbox, save searches, and find your favorite properties at home or on the go.   

2.) Stick to your budget 

When you find a home that you love, it might be tempting to put in a high-priced offer that's sure to win. But don't spread yourself too thin—stick to your budget to avoid a mortgage payment you can't afford. Remember that you made a budget for a reason and try to let that home go. We know it's hard.   

3.) Making an offer

First Time Home Buyers Guide Finally, you've found "The One". It's within your budget and has everything you've been looking for. Now it's time to make an offer. Your agent will help you negotiate a fair offer based on the value of comparable homes in the area. They will be with you every step of the way as a liaison between you and the seller's agent and can answer any questions you may have during the process. If your offer is accepted by the seller, you'll officially be under contract!   

4.) Breathe

After you've signed your name on the dotted line, you'll go into the due diligence period before you officially close on your home. During this time, you're likely freaking out—that's okay! You've made a huge, life-changing decision and you're completely allowed to panic. Just breathe. And remember that buying a home is a valuable long-term investment.  

Closing 

First Time Home Buyers Guide You've made it! Closing day is finally here. This is the final step of your home-buying journey. Closing is the official transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer. At closing, you'll sign your mortgage paperwork and solidify your purchase. From there, you'll be handed the keys and can break out the champagne because you're officially a homeowner! Congratulations!   

Have Questions? 

We know a thing or two about real estate, so give us a call! We would be happy to answer any questions you have about the buying process.

8 Elegant Homes in the Akron and Canton Area that will Blow Your Mind

When looking for a home, it's important to find a property with features that are the right fit for you and your family. If you're a fan of the outdoors, you might look for a property with a large backyard and a patio for entertaining. Conversely, history buffs might be on the lookout for charming details and classic architecture. Luckily, our area has a bit of something for everyone when it comes to stunning properties. We've rounded up some of our favorite, jaw-dropping numbers on the market. You'll find everything from stately exteriors, cozy interiors and wide-open spaces, to private libraries, indoor saunas, fire pits and historic details. Happy hunting!

A Private Estate With Picturesque Views

This unique (and gigantic) property is located on two lots in the Estates of Glenmoor. Offering untouched privacy, picturesque views and quality craftsmanship throughout, this home is a marvel any way you look at it. We're particularly enamored with the elaborate backyard patio — perfect for entertaining guests in the summer!

A Beautifully Landscaped Ranch House

This ranch house, located on one of the largest lots in the Woods of Nobles Pond, is cozy and stately at the same time. On one hand, you have the modern kitchen, comfortable living spaces and abundant natural light.

A Man's Home is his Castle

If the castle-like exterior of this Ridgewood property doesn't immediately draw you in, perhaps you'll be taken by the vintage, cozy feel of the indoor living spaces. In fact, the fabulously-designed house was built in 1918 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 — talk about a historic gem! We're in love with the spacious three-car garage and turret-like entryway.

Benefits of Maintenance Free Living

Home ownership has numerous benefits, from financial (building equity) to social (creating strong community ties). The responsibility and burden of routine home maintenance and yard work, however, are not at the top of that list. For those craving the benefits of owning property without the downside of full responsibility, a condo or townhome may be the perfect solution. Buying a condo or townhome eliminates much of the responsibility and expense of routine home maintenance, such as yard work and home repairs, as well as the larger costs that accompany home renovations. That means residents don't have to shell out the money to repair leaky faucets or broken hot water tanks, they can just place a call to management and put in a maintenance work order. And they don't have to spend weekends planting flowers, laying mulch or mowing the lawn, either—with a condo, landscaping is typically maintained by the homeowners association. First-time home owners can often become overwhelmed by the prospect of furnishing and decorating the inside of a home, so it can be a relief to not have to worry about landscaping, yard maintenance and physical activities such as shoveling snow or repairing the roof. Maintenance-free housing appeals not only to older buyers who may want to avoid icy sidewalks and climbing on ladders for safety reasons, but also to young professionals who don't relish the idea of spending all week working just to come home to a long to-do list for the weekend. The free weekends provided by a maintenance-free lifestyle are especially valuable in urban areas such as Downtown Columbus and the inner city neighborhoods, where residents can take full advantage of being close to the action. Many of the city's best bars and restaurants are within walking distance of urban condos and townhomes, as are art galleries, museums and parks. As another bonus, living in a walkable neighborhood can mean relying less on cars and all the expenses associated with them (think gasoline and routine auto repairs). Want to start exploring the benefits of maintenance-free living? We'd love to help you find the condo or townhome that's perfect for your needs!

8 Tools Every Homeowner Needs

Buying a house offers many perks to homeowners—upgrading, furnishing and decorating being some of the most exciting ones. However, splurging on the look of your home without considering necessary investments such as a well-equipped toolkit can result in future struggles and major headaches. The following are essential tools that every homeowner needs 1. Flashlight Tackling home repairs that occur in dark spaces is nearly impossible without the use of a flashlight. It's also good to have a headlamp for those repairs needing two hands in a darker area.   2. Screwdrivers A well-stocked toolkit must have, at the very least, multiple sizes of Phillips and Flathead screwdrivers to match every need. Be warned you may still encounter a need for a size you don't own.  3. Utility Knife There are many things scissors can't take care of, which is why a high-quality utility knife is a must-have in your home. From precision cutting to removing grout to trimming carpet edges to cutting wires—it's surprising the amount of uses this one small tool can have. 4. Hammer A toolkit is never complete without a hammer but it needs to be a good one. Invest in a hammer with a comfortable grip, a smooth head and a claw for pulling nails or plying. 5. Pliers While these aren't always in the list of top tools to have at home, they can always come in handy. From handling small objects to turning bolts to bending metal, a set of pliers with different shapes and sizes will cover every need. 6. Allen Wrench For all the Ikea/assemble-it-yourself furniture shoppers out there, an Allen wrench is a necessary buy. Driving bolts and screws with hexagonal sockets will be much easier with this literal all-in-one tool. 7. Power Drill Surprisingly, a power drill is one of the most used household tools—especially a cordless power drill. From making big holes to mixing paint to driving screws and bolts, this tool is essentially a jack-of-all-trades. 8. Electrical Cord Many projects require corded tools and devices but a lot of these don't have long enough cables to reach an electrical outlet. When choosing an electrical cord, consider safety, energy efficiency and overall performance. Enjoy your new home and have fun with all the projects you can complete with your completed toolbox.

Luck of the Irish and Other Ways to Bring Good Luck for Home Sellers!

Good Luck for Home Sellers Want to boost the chances of your house selling quickly? Most Realtors will tell you the best way to do so is price your home appropriately. But it can be fun to go the extra mile and try to boost your luck with superstitions that have been passed down over the years. St. Joseph Statue The St. Joe's statue ranks as one of the most pervasive real estate good luck charms. Legend has it that burying a small statue of the patron saint of carpenters upside down in the lawn or garden of the home—while also saying a daily prayer— will help sellers move their home quickly and at a good price. The tactic is popular among Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Citrine Stones Other sellers turn to crystals for help with selling. Also known as "The Merchant's Stone," citrine is a golden-hued crystal rumored to attract good fortune to the people around it. Try placing a few citrine stones in a decorative bowl. Feng Shui Increase your home's positivity using traditional feng shui techniques. Energy enters through the front door, so start by perking up the front entrance with new paint, a new welcome mat and a few plants. Make sure the main foyer is as open and spacious as possible, as well—buyers will often make a decision the moment they step inside the house. Numerology Legend has it that luck in real estate comes from the last non-zero digit of the sale price. And according to Chinese numerology, the number 8 is considered to be lucky (while the number 4 is unlucky!). Therefore, consider listing your home for a price of, say, $178,000 or $308,000—and stay away from anything involving a 4! Smudging Some sellers swear by clearing out any negative energy that may be preventing buyers from falling in love with your home. To do so, purchase a smudging stick made of dried sage, found online or at spiritual shops. To complete the smudging ceremony, open a window to allow the negative energy to exit, then light the sage on fire, blow out the flames, and carry the smoking sage into each room in the house. Of course, we recommend a marketing strategy and plan organized by a Cutler Realtor, but a little luck is always welcome. :)

Unplug and Re-Energize

Unplug and Re-Energize In the "always on", dynamic real estate industry, taking time for yourself can lower stress levels and improve your mental wellbeing. Follow these ideas to slow down and re-energize from a chaotic schedule.

Read a book Studies have proven that reading can promote relaxation. Whether it's a mystery novel, self-help book, professional publication or magazine, dedicating time to read can help busy professionals clear their mind and escape from daily stressors. Reading for leisure or business can be enjoyed anywhere, from your local park to your backyard to your favorite travel spot.

Unplug completely More than ever, people struggle with taking time off their electronic devices, which is turning off phones, computers and other devices is important to recover from stress. Interact with people in person, pick up a hobby, go on a hike, or take a spontaneous trip—anything that doesn't include the use of electronics.

Join an adult camp If having a work-life balance is a struggle, it might be time to consider an adult camp to unplug, re-energize and review priorities. These camps are becoming increasingly popular as time demands and stress levels continue to rise among American adults. With over 800 adult camps available in the U.S., professionals are now able to connect with other workers who are experiencing similar situations to theirs.

Treat yourself When all else fails, schedule a lunchtime massage, spa day or coffee with a friend to take your mind off of work and other daily stress factors.

Setting aside time to unwind and unplug will not only reduce stress levels, but it will also improve work performance and increase energy—which every Realtor needs.

Stow New Look Celebration!

Ribbon Cutting at Stow "New Look" Celebration Following the trend of making 2017 the best year yet, Cutler set its sights on Stow as we continue the remodeling project of our offices in Northeast Ohio! Our Stow office celebrated earlier this month its "New Look"!  Realtors, Staff, Family, and Friends attended the celebration. Although the weather outside was cold and snowy, inside the office was filled with excitement, warm welcomes and hugs as guests were welcomed into a modern, open concept work space.   Realtor Work/Training Area!  Shirley Chimento, the Stow office manager, spent the evening in conversation with many visitors, excitedly talking about the much anticipated "new look" of the office. The renovation of this office started in Mid-December of 2016, since then a lot has changed. Most noticeably, there are no more cubicles to be found anywhere in this office. Now, Realtors are able to work together in an open, creative environment!  The Entrance of the Office The hors d'oeurves and desserts were provided by two local businesses in Stow Ohio. A delectable arrangement of stuffed mushrooms, grilled veggies and probably the best meatballs you'll ever eat were catered by family owned and operated, Kirbie's Meats and Catering. And please, do not even get us started on the desserts provided by Custom Cake Creations! Mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, lemon tarts, snickerdoodles satisfied even the sweetest of sweet tooth!

Home Warranty vs. Home Insurance, What is the Difference?

Home Warranty vs. Home Insurance Home insurance and home warranties are similar, but they are not the same. Both provide some sort of coverage for an unexpected event, but coverage and claims are different between the two. For first-time homebuyers the process of buying your first home can be overwhelming and confusing. It is important to educate yourself and communicate your questions or concerns with your real estate professional. One key factor in owning your first home is to understand the difference between a home warranty and home insurance. According to HSA Home Warranty, "a home warranty is a one-year contractual guarantee that should certain appliances or mechanical systems fail due to normal wear and tear during the coverage period, those items will be repaired or replaced, subject to a small deductible."  A home warranty is in place for the first twelve months after closing. On the other hand, home insurance provides coverage due to unexpected catastrophes, such as earthquakes, windstorms, fires and more. It also provides protection for loss of property from theft, including everything from jewelry to electronics. There is no question as to the need for home insurance as your mortgage lender will require you to purchase a policy and have it in place on the day of closing.  It will be required as long as you have a mortgage on the property.  Further, if you were to purchase a home with cash, home insurance is strongly recommended to protect your investment. A home warranty isn't required to close or purchase a new home. However, it can provide peace of mind should the dishwasher or hot water heater break two months after closing. A new home comes with lots of opportunities and a lot of unknowns, so this type of coverage will provide breathing room should the unexpected happen and be a costly fix. In either case, for home warranties and home insurance, ask questions, understand the coverage you will have, and store the paperwork with your closing documents and house information so you have it handy if you need it.

Cutler Connect with Clinton Jones

Hi I'm Clinton Jones with Cutler Real Estate at the Upper Arlington Office What drew you to the Real Estate industry? What made me decide to become a Realtor was after working in corporate America for over 12 years I got tired of wearing a suit and tie and being told what to do so therefore I got into Real Estate to be my own person, now I don't have to wear a suit and tie all the time I love wearing this suit but I hate wearing a tie. The other thing is working with clients I enjoy working with people and helping them find their dream home. What do you enjoy about working in Real Estate? What I enjoy about working in Real Estate is working with different people, everyday it's a different challenge. No two days are alike and you never get bored. Also when you're out searching for homes you'll come across that diamond in the rough, a building that's never been touched for years. And then you find the right buyer and turn it in to their dream home. What would you say to someone starting out in Real Estate? What I would say to someone first getting into Real Estate is to be patient, you're not gonna have the clients like a Realtor has that's been in the business for 20 plus years. It takes time. You have to understand that most Realtors takes over 3 years to build up their clientele and have a backup plan. Know what you're going to do when things are a little soft in the market, know what things you're gonna do when things are thriving in the market. Don't get overwhelmed, don't get stressed out, enjoy yourself. What's the most challenging thing you find in Real Estate? The largest challenge I've found in Real Estate today is all the technology that's used. When I first started in Real Estate over 15 years ago all you had was a telephone and a piece of paper to write everything down. Now, you have a smartphone, a tablet, your laptop, and about 15 apps to use. Not only do you know how to use them, but you have to show your client how to use all these apps and when to use them and when not to use them. That's what makes Real Estate challenging to me.  Why Cutler Real Estate? Cutler Real Estate has helped me in my career by offering a wide variety of training classes to help with all the new technology. They also have a great management team in order to help you with any questions you have. So I hope to see you at Cutler Real Estate.

Where Real Estate and Art Effortlessly Collide

Earlier this month, with much excitement, we reopened our Kent office. We couldn't think of a better way to start off 2017, as we celebrate our 70th Anniversary as a company. For Cutler, the opening of this space in revitalized downtown Kent holds high hopes and anticipation for yet another momentous year. Our new space, touting modern décor with pops of our signature Cutler orange, is similar to that of our Downtown Wooster, New Albany and Powell offices. Visitors walk into a space unlike any real estate office they've ever seen. What makes this office unique is that it shares space with Group Ten Art Gallery, a group of local co-op artists.   A before/after shot of our Kent office! Visitors can expect to be warmly greeted by the Stow office manager, Shirley Chimento and a smiling Administrative Assistant.  Our Realtors and guests are able to easily conduct business in an open concept work environment. To the left of the office entrance, visitors are engulfed into a world of eclectic works of local art. Art is not what typically comes to mind when thinking about a real estate office. However, in Kent the two spaces effortlessly collide into one wonderful space of creativity and business. Essentially at this office, once you sign the papers to purchase your new home you can then purchase a piece of art for your new home!   #CutlerLovesKent On behalf of Cutler Real Estate, we would like to thank the city of Kent, Mayor Fiala and Lori Wemhoff, Director of Kent Chamber of Commerce for celebrating with us in the Grand Reopening of our new office. The city of Kent has been an incredible location for Cutler Real Estate since 2005 and we truly appreciate the city for its ongoing support of our mission to simplify the complicated real estate transaction, while creating an exciting and enriching experience. Our Kent office sits at the corner of Erie and Haymaker nestled beside the Kent State University campus in the newly revitalized downtown Kent. The office is open daily from 8am to 5pm.

Attention Homeowners, Protect Your Home from Ice Dams

Dangers of Ice Dams
Ever heard of an ice dam? If you've experienced the home damage that can be caused by these wintertime hazards, you won't soon forget the term!

An ice dam is a hump of ice that forms at the edges of a roof, caused by snow and ice. Ice dams may be caused when the attic gets warm enough to melt the underside of a layer of snow on the roof. What happens next is water drips down the roof until it reaches the colder eaves, where it refreezes. Gradually, all that water grows into a mound of ice. Dams can also be caused by gutters that trap snow and ice, which can build up high enough to provide the foundation for an ice dam.

Icicles hanging from the edge of the roof are a good indication that an ice dam may be forming. Ice dams are more commonly found in older homes that lack proper insulation and ventilation.

Once they've formed, ice dams can cause plenty of property damage. As an ice dam grows bigger, melted water can back up behind it and seep underneath shingles, penetrating the roof. That water can drip down into the home, causing peeling paint, warped floors and sagging ceilings. If the ice jam becomes heavy enough it can fall, tearing down gutters and shingles along with it.

The best way to prevent ice dams from forming is preventing the roof from warming in the first place. To do so, add extra insulation in the attic and seal off any air leaks from the main living space. Cover unsealed attic hatches or whole-house fans with weather-stripped caps, and seal and insulate HVAC and exhaust ducts. Gutters should be cleaned in the fall so water, rain and melted snow can flow off properly. And after snowfalls of 6 inches or more, use a roof rake or shovel to remove snow that has accumulated on top of your home.
