Marci was able to sell and close on the home with expert efficiency! She and her team were a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use them again.
Marci Press & team are great! We just sold my house in March and got well above asking price. She listened to our wants and needs, and was very responsive through every step of the way to keep us in the loop (as we were selling remotely from the other side of the country). My husband previously bought his house with her, as did his parents. We all strongly recommend Marci as your realtor of choice in the Columbus area!
Testimonial Letter - March 2022
My experience with Marci Press & Pros was simply amazing, from start to finish! My agent helped me find the right houses to visit and, as I'm an out-of-town buyer, she worked hard to set up many viewings for me in one weekend. Then, after I found a house I wanted to put an offer on, the Seller did not like my out-of-state lender. Once again, MP&P to the rescue! Through their connections (built from years of experience and their excellent reputation), I was able to get pre-approved from a new lender -- on a Saturday of a holiday weekend, no less! They also helped schedule the inspection within the contract-required 7 days (again, without their connections to trusted, highly-rated professionals, I could not have made that happen). I truly felt supported by Marci Press & Pros from day one. In this market, a Buyer needs someone who will support them through the process, and be able to handle any barrier that gets in the way. You simply can't choose a better partner than Marci Press & Pros! Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions and purchases you'll make -- put your trust in Marci and her team, and you can't go wrong.
Marci is the best! She takes time getting to know clients and what's really important to them. Her team treats you like family and shoots it straight. I can't imagine feeling more comfortable with anyone else in the business!
Testimonial Letter - January 2022
Marci assisted me with selling my condo and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. From start to finish, Marci exceeded all of my expectations for a realtor. She was extremely helpful and responsive in the time leading up to listing my property and beyond the closing. I highly recommend Marci for buying or selling your home, and I have recommended her services to family and friends.
Testimonial Letter - October 2021
Working with Marci was easy at every step. She gave me helpful feedback on questions about the sale. She also helped in preparing the home to sell. Then her group helped me find and purchase the new condo that I am moving into, something very hard to do in this market.
Wow! Marci was wonderful to work with. So many things stand out about Marci, but two things that set her apart is how she communicates clearly and timely and how reliable she is. She made us feel like we were her only client. As a huge bonus, Marci also has excellent contacts that allowed us to get work done at the house quickly and at a great price. We loved working with Marci and would definitely recommend her to friends and family.
Testimonial Letter - August 2021
I have worked with Marci on the sale and purchase of homes multiple times and I can confidently say she is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her expertise and professionalism are unmatched in the market. She is gracious and very talented in dealing with the harsh challenges of the real estate business. I would never use anyone else.
Marion and Randall Slaybaugh
We can’t thank Marci enough for her patience and dedication while we looked for a house during one of the worst times in history to buy a house! She was very honest with us every step of the way and helped us find a house we are so happy with. We highly recommend her!
Sarah and AJ Prosak
Testimonial Letter - June 2021
Marci and her team were on top of their game and communicated with us throughout the entire process of selling our condo. We highly recommend Marci for any real estate transactions.
Mark and Beth Workman
Marci is an absolute rock star! We have worked with Marci to buy and sell multiple homes over the years. I can't say enough good things about Marci. As a buyer's agent, Marci is easy to work with, learns your family's needs, and helps you find the perfect house. Once you find your house, Marci makes the process of actually buying and negotiating stress-free. During the last down market, Marci sold our home _before_ listing and for a good price. This most recent time, Marci got our house in contract within about 30 hours of listing and for more money than our list price. The results Marci is able to achieve are a testament to her skill, knowledge, and preparation. Marci helps you through the buying and selling process so that it is worry-free, and you can focus on moving into your dream home. She's a tough advocate for you when she needs to be, and takes a softer approach when appropriate. I wouldn't work with anyone else. Highly recommended!
This was the second house I've sold with Marci and wouldn't consider anyone else. Aside from knowing her business inside and out, as a individual she is the genuine article. A warm and compassionate person with whom I give my full trust even when selling a house while living out of state. She took care of absolutely everything and put my mind at ease of any worry regarding the home I was away from during the selling process with constant communication and remote signings. Marci and Maggie made an incredibly stressful and emotional process very easy for me, and for that, I am forever grateful.
Testimonial Letter - March 2021
A friend suggested that l contact Marci Press to see if she could help me find a home. I was not so sure that l could find my first home in the current market. From the moment that l spoke to Marci Press l knew that l would be in good hands with regard to my home buying process. Marci was on her way to a closing for another client when she took my call, listened to and understood what l was searching for in the housing market. She explained her own work ethic and the Home Central Realty philosophy and then demonstrated her "right now" approach to business by being responsive and "right now" with me. I remember one evening l had called Marci about an issue that l was having and she actually stepped away from the birthday party that she was attending just to take my call and help me work thru the issue! Marci assured me of her best and l received exactly that. Her strong knowledge and experience about the housing industry was quickly apparent as she recommended various tradesmen and resources when l needed them and then checked in with me and encouraged me, at least weekly, as l worked with one of her expert Realtors. l did, in fact, enter into contract to buy a home within 1 week of that first call to Marci Press (l had been searching without any luck for 2 months prior) l closed on my darling little house 30 days later! I owe it all to Marci Press and her team - definitely recommend - phenomenal experience!
Marci was amazing in selling our home! We relied heavily on her expertise on 1) how to prepare our home for sale 2) setting an asking price 3) selecting a specific sales strategy 4) how to take advantage of her team's knowledge and talent for advertising on social media and describing and photographing our home. We were thrilled with the sales process and the offers, all beyond our expectations. While Marci's real estate "smarts" are the main reason to hire her, the other thing that sets her apart from any other realtor we've used is her unique ability to make you feel as though you are her only client. You know that she has lots of other clients but you feel like she puts all of her effort into doing what's needed to sell your home. Plenty of communication, lots of tips and helpful suggestions for the whole selling and moving process. We heartily recommend Marci and her team!

Marci is hands down the best realtor that we have ever had. She is extremely knowledgeable and made us feel as though we were her only client. She handled everything flawlessly and all we had to do was sit back and relax. Highly recommend her and would use no one else.
Faith & Bryan Shaw
Testimonial Letter - January 2021
Marci is an impressive professional who employs just the right touch of deft guidance throughout the process of selling a home without being overbearing. She was always responsive to my questions and was extremely helpful in setting expectations and making suggestions for what i could do to enhance the presentation of my home. She inspires confidence and helps to minimize the angst of navigating the sale process from pre-listing to post-closing. My experience with Marci occurred during the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic but that did not prevent her from exceeding my expectations.
Testimonial Letter - November 2020
We teamed up with Marci and her team in the summer of 2016 to purchase our home in Grove City, Ohio. My wife was able to find our home in under 3 days. 4 years later, many great experiences, friends, and memories were made in that home and we decided to stick with Marci and her team to sell the home as the military told us our time in Grove City Ohio was up. Marci was above and beyond and could not have made the process any easier with our strict timeline and amidst a pandemic. We worried none, and met all expectations on the sell of the home. We have made a great business point of contact and if Ohio is somewhere we want to retire, Marci would be our first call.
Chardell & Nick Robinson
Marci and team are wonderful! I would highly recommend them! Marci has been my realtor twice now and both times she was very organized, informative, knowledgeable and just all around fantastic. Marci is very personable, helpful, and great at what she does and anyone working with her will be pleased with the results!
Marci was invaluable in the sales process. She tried to make things as easy and effortless as possible. She was incredibly responsive and so knowledgeable. I was so happy to have her guidance. I highly recommend Marci Press!
Marci has helped us buy two properties and we're looking forward to having her be our listing agent soon. We toured over 20 homes with her the first time in a 2 month period and she helped us purchase a piece of land over a 6 month process the 2nd time around. She is a great communicator with timely and complete replies to all of our questions and will advocate for you as her client. She's been a wonderful asset and we would highly recommend her to friends, family, and to you.
Michaela & Jonathan Barteldt
Marci was a delight to work with throughout the home-selling process. Her knowledge and expertise was impressive and her commitment to us from beginning to end was flawless. I highly recommend Marci if you are selling your home.
Barbi & Dave Healey
Testimonial Letter - October 2020
Call Marci! If you are reading this, you are trying to decide on a realtor and I am here to tell you to call Marci. She is a Superstar Realtor! I used her expertise to buy my very first home and found she was genuinely there representing my best interest. Answering questions, so many questions! Seeing so many homes, sometimes 2 and 3 times. Needless to say, Marci helped me buy the perfect home for my family. 15 years later when it was time to sell, I called Marci to get the job done. I was in contract after one weekend of showings with several offers, and sold at $12,000 over asking price. Call Marci for all your real estate needs; she is a SUPERSTAR!
Testimonial Letter - June 2020
When I was ready to sell my house I didn't expect the process to be easy but that's what it was! Marci Press & Pros are just that, PROS! My house was on the market not even a weekend and there were so many showings that it sold that same weekend. I moved out of state before the sale was complete and had to sign the papers. The process was flawless and again very easy. I highly recommend Marci and her team!!
Testimonial Letter - April 2020
When we moved back to Ohio from Texas a friend referred us to Marci. She helped us find our house and after 14 years we decided to move and we turned to Marci again to help us buy and sell a house. She was great to work with and she really cares about her clients.
Testimonial Letter - February 2020
Marci is beyond intelligent, resourceful and professional. She is a master at what she does. We met Marci at an open house. We instantly connected and were happy to work with her as we found our next home. My husband and I were impressed with her work ethic and knowledge about the area. She helped us navigate some of our early finds and the "bidding wars" in what was an ultra-competitive market. She's so well connected that anything we needed, she was able to refer us or help us find. She was amazing. Marci was not only our realtor. She became our friend. Selling our condo and buying our house at the same time (while pregnant) was a process (as anyone who has done it knows). However, Marci's experience, wisdom, thoughtfulness, attentiveness and smile made it all seem easier for us. We appreciate her and very highly recommend her to everyone!
Testimonial Letter - January 2020
Marci was always easy to work with. She responds immediately and has an infinite amount of patience. She showed me many condoes and never made me feel that I was a burden. She was always willing to show me many places until I found the one I wanted. She was a real advocate for my interests. I have recommended her to many people because I valued her expertise so much. Marci helped me get my condo ready to sell by providing people to paint it and make small improvements. My condo sold very quickly.
Testimonial Letter - December 2019
The search is over. It doesn’t matter whether you're looking for a realtor or you're looking for your next home, or looking for a buyer, Marci is the answer. I first learned about Marci from a mutual client of ours. When he first said her name it sounded familiar to me but I wasn't sure how I knew it. The client and his wife both raved about Marci, both in tirelessly helping them find their spectacular new home and with instantly selling their old one. In my business I strive to network with anyone who is at the top of their game, gets such rave reviews, and goes above and beyond for their clients. When I got home that night I actually had an OSU football schedule magnet that Marci had sent out to everyone in my neighborhood on my refrigerator. I didn't even realize it was from her...despite having her picture right there on it. I went to meet her at her old office in Gahanna, a location I passed everyday on my way to and from my own office. During the following months I had been working ridiculous hours on some intense projects and often not making it home until 10-11-12 at night. The crazy thing was, when I passed Marci's office in Creekside, her office light was always on and you could see Marci's bright red hair still working away in there. A couple times I stopped in just to say hi, I knew how nice it was to get a break in the monotony on those long nights. I got to learn first-hand about Marci's work ethic, and the sheer volume of business that she was doing. Not only that, she owns and runs the company. I mentioned to Marci that I might consider selling my house. 4 days later I had a very nice couple knock on my door; say "we heard you were considering selling your house." I called Marci and said "what did you do?!" She told me to name my price, I did, at a ridiculous price, the couple walked through my house the next night, and I had a full price offer in my hands the day after that. That was magic. A couple days later it finally hit me that I was about to be homeless and panic set in. Inventory was at an all-time low in Columbus. Marci setup an MLS search for me, my perfect house hit the market at 6am one morning and I instantly started blowing up Marci's phone. At 6am. She called me back at 7am and she scheduled a showing for lunchtime that same day. By the time we got there, the sellers had already received 2 offers and had already countered one of them and were preparing a counter for the second. Marci again worked her magic and had the selling agent stop the phone; we ditch both other buyers in line and got me in contract. She worked both deals perfectly seamless so I was able to move on my terms with the proceeds from my sale going straight to the previous owners of my new house. After that experience I began raving about Marci to my friends and clients as well. She has since become the realtor for a dozen folks in my circle and Marci often comes up in regular conversation due to her work ethic and successes. Marci has 3 sons that are the driving force behind her work ethic and she has treated me like her 4th from day one and continues that love to this day.
Testimonial Letter - November 2019
I have completed 2 transactions with Marci personally and another with a member of her team and they have all been great. Marci helped me purchase my first residence a few years ago and walked me through the process from start to finish in a way that helped me make the best decision I could while taking all the stress out of it. I acquired my condo at a great price and could tell very early on that Marci wasn't concerned with making a quick sale and genuinely cared that I was picking the right place for me and getting a deal I was comfortable with. I should note that prior to purchasing the condo I had never met Marci, she was the listing agent for the property so when I called to schedule a viewing I asked her to help me since I didn't have a realtor. I was so impressed with everything that I knew I had found my realtor going forward. Earlier this year my wife and I decided it was time for something bigger so we started house hunting and took tours of several properties. The final property we looked at came on the market and we knew it would go fast so we wanted to see it the same day and due to prior commitments Marci was unavailable that night, but put us in touch with Alex on her team so we could see the house immediately. Alex was great and we ended up purchasing the house with his help. Although we didn't buy the house from Marci directly she still called or text me almost daily to make sure we were happy and everything was going as planned. When we went in contract on the house it was time to list the condo for sale so Marci got it listed for us. The condo was sold in less than a week and we got exactly the price we wanted, which was more than I thought we could actually get due to the time of year. We couldn't be happier with our experiences with Marci and would recommend her to anyone. Anytime we have needed anything or had a question, including the 5 years between buying and selling the condo, she has always been there and made sure we were happy. At this point it is like dealing with a friend who happens to deal in real estate and she will definitely be handling all of our transactions going forward.
Testimonial Letter - August 2019
Marci Press, the owner and principal agent of Home Central Realty, did an absolutely wonderful job of marketing and selling our home. We had never seriously thought of selling it, but early this year illnesses and advancing age made an immediate move to an assisted living facility in a more favorable climate imperative. From our very first meeting with Marci it was clear that she knew the local market thoroughly and that she could be trusted implicitly to represent us in our absence. We could not have been more right. Marci got to work immediately. She made great suggestions that helped us show the house to its best advantage, and she helped us sell not only the house but the incredible collections of things we had accumulated and treasured over the years. The net result was that we sold the house more quickly than I ever thought we could, we sold it on terms that we would never have thought possible, we got more for it than we expected, and Marci was a delight to work with throughout. We will recommend Marci and her team to everyone we know and value without any reservation whatsoever. We are forever indebted to her for helping us to get on with our lives as quickly and as smoothly as we did.
Testimonial Letter - July 2019
We were impressed by Marci's responsiveness and knowledge of our neighborhood. She did a great job getting the best offer for our home and ensuring a smooth transaction.
Testimonial Letter - June 2019
Marci knew we were in the market when we called at 10AM one Sunday morning. We caught her driving back from a family event in Cincinnati wanting to see a house THAT DAY. Marci drove right over for the showing, we put an offer in the that day. Marci did a thorough evaluation of the house we needed to sell. She made many showing suggestions to improve the house, which resulted in us getting more than we thought was possible. Our first buyers backed out suddenly. While we were moping, Marci was negotiating with the realtor of the next best offer, and we had a new offer (which closed) the next day. Very thorough Extremely thoughtful Knows the market (and marketing) better than anyone in the business. If you are looking for the best realtor, Marci fits the bill.
Debbie & Tim Murnane
I rate Marci as high as possible because she was outstanding in helping me relocate to Columbus. She is market-savvy and I had confidence in her knowledge of the marketplace. After a quick trip to Columbus and several hours and house visits with Marci, she had a solid idea of what I was looking for. In fact, I had so much confidence in her that I bought my place without ever seeing it. I saw it the night before the closing and I was thrilled with my purchase and her guidance. She also found an excellent loan officer that was easy to work with and economical as well.
We are so happy with all the hard work and effort that Marci and her team put into the selling of our home. She was very helpful with any questions we had throughout the process and she was able to sell our house in record time for around what we had hoped. Her expertise really paid off and she was a pleasure to work with. Highly highly recommend!
Anna & JR Dobbs
Marci provided exceptional service and was always available to assist me while buying and selling a house. I would recommend Marci to anyone to sell or buy a home because of her knowledge and professionalism.
Heidi & Mike Rogers
Testimonial Letter - January 2019
I highly recommend Marci Press for all of your real estate needs! She is thoughtful, kind, patient, professional, honest, EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE and a pleasure to work with. She helped me get my dream house, but if I ever do move again, I would only trust Marci.
Marci is a class act! She dedicated an immense amount of time to help us find the perfect home, even doing several FaceTime walk-throughs for us as we were buying from out-of-state. Her knowledge of the greater Columbus area was extraordinarily helpful as we were looking for a home we could invest some money into and get a good return. Her availability and guidance made the home-buying process seamless; especially for first-time homeowners. Finally, Marci's responsiveness and attention to detail is unmatched. Her willingness to talk to us at any hour and respond immediately to texts and phone calls sets her apart. We 100% recommend her to any home buyer!
Marci was absolutely AMAZING! From the very beginning of our stressful process of selling and buying, I never felt like a client to Marci. She treated me as a friend. She was extremely tentive to my needs and concerns. She was always able to be reached. Marci always understood me, my concerns and took everything very seriously. I literally cannot explain how many times she went above and beyond what I ever imagined. She is a women of her word. She simply amazed me. She is the best realtor anybody could ever ask for. She followed through from start to finish and I couldn't be happier! I give Marci Press a 10++ stars! Thank you for everything, Marci! You are truly the best!
Stephanie & Tim Bryant
Testimonial Letter - December 2018
Ours was a unique and very sensitive situation. Selling the home of a loved one, a home we grew up in. Marci understood this and while very professional she was sympathetic to our needs. We had deadlines to meet throughout this process and Marci made sure we stayed on top of them. She went above and beyond. Marci will tell you like it is. She's very honest and knowledgeable and will follow through until the end. Everything is urgent to her even if it's not. That's why she gets things done. Marci is a joy to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the future. Call her today!!! She'll take care of you!

Marci is wonderful! Thorough, responsive and knowledgeable based on her decade+ career. She always made us feel like she had all the time in the world for us.
Kelly & Jack Johnson
My wife and I bought our first house with Marci as our realtor. We cannot possibly recommend her highly enough. Marci was very committed to finding the house that was just right for us. She was constantly available for advice & guidance. The only reason our offer was ever accepted for our home was due to Marci’s suggestions and negotiation ability. We were very inexperienced & nervous as first time home buyers, but Marci made everything so much easier. As long as we live in Central Ohio, she will be our realtor. And she will always be our friend. If you hire her, I guarantee you will feel the same way.
Erin & Sam Scheidlower
This box is not large enough. :-) Marci's professionalism and personal touch went miles in creating a great experience and a swift transition when we were in the process of selling and relocating out of state. She has the network and the negotiating skills to make it happen. Marci was always very proactive in maintaining contact and helping to relieve those times of stress which come from large moves. So truly appreciate the experience of working with her and also calling her a friend.
Kay & Vinnie Mason
We were house hunting from out of state and Marci was beyond helpful every step of the way. It was a very hot market when we were looking and Marci was able to meet us or have an associate meet us to see houses as soon as possible. We drove 8 hours just to see one house! Marci was very useful in helping us ask the right questions when sitting through a discussion on a new build as well as helping us negotiate the final price on the house we did purchase. We look to use Marci again when it comes time for us to leave the Columbus area.
Meghan & Jim Fink
Testimonial Letter - October 2018
Marci is a real pro. We have used Marci for two primary residences in the past 5 years. We continue to recommend her to others. What I like best about Marci is her commitment to excellence and her attention to details. What I respect most about Marci is her understanding of what is most important in life and in business.
Mary Jane & Jim Matcham
Marci and her staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped us to sell our home and get great offers well over asking and at the same time helped us find our next dream home that met all of our very specific needs.
Kayleigh & Corey Snyder
Marci was amazing to work with when selling my home. She guided me along the way and gave great advice. She was always quick to respond and flexible. Once the house was listed it sold in 2 days. I would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family!
Marci helped us both buy our new house and sell our old house. We couldn't be happier with both experiences. She is gracious, professional and very effective. She was able to find a house that we loved that fit our requirements but wouldn't have been something we normally would have considered. She helped us overcome unexpected difficulties during many aspects of our purchase and sale experiences. I have never had such an outstanding real estate experience with such a delightful agent...ever!
Randall Slaybaugh & Marion McClelland
Testimonial Letter - September 2018
Marci is the most dedicated, caring person and will work tirelessly on your behalf to make sure you find a home you love! My husband and I were amazed at her attentiveness, timeliness, and negotiating skills. She made buying our first home such a fun experience!!
Courtney Jones & David Etters
Testimonial Letter - July 2018
Marci was referred to me by a mutual client. They told me about Marci's work ethic, professionalism, and ability to both close their new purchase AND bring multiple offers (this was years before the booming market we're in today) on their existing property overnight. Overnight. They called her a rockstar. I told myself that I had to meet this person. I met her. She's a g.d. rockstar. She goes the extra hundred miles for every one of her clients. Marci's "why" is deeper and truer than any other realtor in town and her results are the proof. There are so many talented professionals in this industry in this town, but I solely refer Marci Press because her drive, her knowledge, and her awesomeness are second to none.
Marci was very professional and patient in helping us sell/purchase our 2nd home. We used Marci in the process of buying our 1st home in 2013 and will not trust anyone else in making one of life's biggest choices again. Very knowledgeable in her field and is always available for Q & A.

Marci was awesome to work with!! This was our second time working with her. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Marci always made herself available to answer all our questions and was very prompt at returning phone calls. She is a true professional, top notch negotiator, and she worked hard to sell our home quickly!
Amy & Craig Telesz
In a very competitive market, Marci helped me find just the right new home for me, and negotiated the deal that got me into contract. Then she guided me through the process of getting my old home on the market and sold in no time. She was easy to reach by phone and always responsive to questions. I had a great home buying/selling experience with Marci!
Testimonial Letter - August 2017
Working with Marci Press has been a wonderful experience. She is knowledgeable, professional, and truly cares about finding the perfect home for her clients.
Aviv & Ryan Bruno
When we started to search for our new home, we knew an experienced, knowledgeable, professional and honest realtor was important. We found exactly that and more in Marci. From the moment my Wife and I first met her, we knew she was the right choice. The housing market, when we started our search, was absolutely crazy. Houses were going for far more than the asking price and were selling before we were able to see the house. Marci was so accommodating when we did find a house we wanted to see. Marci ALWAYS listened to what we wanted and truly went above and beyond to make sure we were informed and able to make a sound decision. Not once did Marci ever pressure us to buy a home. In fact, at one point, my wife and I were really torn as to whether we wanted to put an offer in on a house. So we asked Marci her opinion. She responded with "Do you want me to give you my opinion as if my kids were buying this house?" Marci then quickly informed us that this was not our house and we should keep looking. This house was one of the most expensive houses we looked at and never once did she think with her own pockets. The knowledge Marci has of the about the industry and the central Ohio market is second to none. Marci listened to what we wanted in a house and got us exactly that. Literally exactly what we wanted right down to the gas stove. By truly listening to what we wanted, Marci showed us a home that was $30,000 less than the budget we set and our taxes are half of what other houses 1 mile away are. I went into the process of buying a home a little hesitant. Everyone I knew talked about how crazy the market was and the lack of available homes for sale. Well, Marci made sure the ENTIRE process was enjoyable and smooth. She was with us the entire way from our first signature to our last. One thing my Wife and I agree on is we wish we could buy houses more often just so we can use Marci. SHE IS A TRUE GEM! Her negotiating skills, even in this market, are more than impressive. You can research other realtors, but I firmly believe you will not find anyone better to represent you during such an important time. Marci - We can't thank you enough for everything! You were more than we could have asked for and will miss working with you!

Working with Marci was an absolute delight. As first-time homebuyers, she made what by all rights should have been a very stressful, intimidating experience fun, exciting, and totally memorable for all the right reasons. Marci guided us through every step of the home buying process and was always straightforward and honest, especially when she felt like a particular home was not in our best interest (i.e., steering us clear of the not-so-desirable locations). It was very clear that Marci was not just out to make a sale but genuinely committed to helping us find our dream home. Not to mention she went above and beyond on more than one occasion -- including bending over backwards to help us get an offer in on time while she was on vacation. Even though that offer fell through, Marci reassured us with her positive attitude that the perfect home was out there. When we did find the perfect home, Marci again came through for us in spectacular fashion by taking our (frequent) calls and helping us get an offer in on Mother's Day while she was spending time with her family. We're thrilled to say that because of Marci's hard work and dedication, we were able to find the perfect house to start this new chapter of our lives. We could not have asked for a better guide through this journey. We certainly were "M Pressed!"
My husband and I were first-time buyers with busy work schedules needing to find a new home quickly to avoid renewing a rental lease. Marci made herself available to answer questions and see homes on a moment's notice. We saw a variety of homes in a variety of Columbus neighborhoods and Marci provided helpful, insightful information along the way. After several showings, she helped us find exactly what we were looking for in terms of size, home style and neighborhood. She helped create an offer the buyer did not turn down! We are extremely happy with how Marci and her team made the process fun, informative and low-stress as possible!
Testimonial Letter - April 2017
Wow! What can I say? Marci is absolutely fantastic. The five stars are not an understatement. I have not read any other reviews but I'm certain there are plenty of five star reviews by her name. She is very responsive to any questions you may have. She is also experienced with many connections. Through Marci I was able to find a gem of a home and through her connections was able to get carpet, painting, house-cleaning, and movers. All at a great price. You simply can't find anyone better.
Testimonial Letter - March 2017
Marci was such a pleasure to work with while my husband and I bought our first home. She was extremely knowledgeable and was available at any time, any day. Thanks so much Marci!
Marci was great. She worked so hard and was so efficient. She encouraged me to ask questions and was responsive and her answers were easy to understand. She walked me through every step of the process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Marci Press!
Testimonial Letter - January 2017
Marci helped me sell my Grandfather's home at full asking price within 4 days. I was living out of state which could have been challenging, but Marci made the process pain-free. Marci was always available to answer all of my questions, and as a first-time home seller, I had many. Marci made me feel very comfortabe with the process, and her staff was super helpful as well. I would defintely recommend her!!
The home buying experience with Marci Press exceeded our expectations. Her patient professional approach brought us to the perfect home and neighborhood for us. We looked at many properties but felt very comfortable expressing what we really wanted. Marci and her staff were exemplary in getting us into a great home and with an amazing turn around for closing. On Schedule! Many Thanks!!
Kay & Vinnie Mason
From the beginning Marci was there every step of the way while we searched for our perfect home. She never had any problem meeting us at a house and worked around our schedule. She helped us understand everything along the way and always looked out for what was best for us. She will work for you and help you find what you want no matter how long it takes.
Katie & Jeremy Stuhlfauth
Marci was a great help in getting our rental property sold under the conditions we needed. Marci was responsive and patient and helped thanks to make it a smooth process. Thanks Marci.
I cannot recommend Marci highly enough! She arranged the sale of my home in record time at asking price. All who worked with her during the sale - the photographer, the stager, the office manager and the title company representatives - were extremely talented and competent. I found the time of my move (Christmas - who moves at Christmas?) to be very stressful but Marci's steady presence, excellent communication, and innate compassion kept me going. Each descriptor of her competence (Local knowledge, Process expertise, Responsiveness, Negotiation skills) listed is absolutely true. Thank you, Marci!
I could not have asked for a better realtor! Marci Press listened and understood exactly what I was looking for. She was very patient with my "pickyness". Her and her whole team made my home buying experience perfect! I love my house!
Testimonial Letter - December 2016
This is the second time I have worked with Marci, although this time on the sale side, and I honestly cannot express enough thanks to Marci for her assistance. I am, once again, an extremely happy customer. This particular situation was very delicate and she handled working with myself and my ex husband with extreme professionalism, providing advice and support when needed. When the initial contract fell through, Marci had our house re-listed and sold within 24 hours. She kept us informed of all phases of the sale. The tools that Marci uses to show the home, and to sign contracts made the process from the seller's point seamless and effortless. I hope to work with Marci sometime soon in the near future for the purchase of a new home.
Testimonial Letter - November 2016
I cannot say enough about Marci Press. She was the best. She helped me every step of the way in finding me a finance company ( who were fantastic to work with) to recommending contractors to sell our home. Her knowledge of areas and knowing the markets was indeed a big plus. When we finally found the house she worked her butt off to make sure we got our bid accepted. I love my new home Thanks Marci. I look forward to working with you on the sale of our other home!
Marcy rocks!!! She was able to sell my home in ONE DAY!!! She was extremely helpful in closing the deal. Great communication, results oriented and works crazy hours to make the customer feel important. She managed working with the buyer's agent to make the sale happen and negotiate the best option for me. She is the best at what she does and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have a successful RE transaction. Thanks Marcy for all you have done for me!
We bought our first home with Marci in May of 2012 and she was very knowledgeable and patient with us as first time home buyers. She helped us negotiate a great deal on the property and was there for us every step of the way! We then listed the same house with her in September of 2016; in less than 5 days on the market we had two full price offers! Marci was great at walking us through the selling process and we were able to close the deal in just over a month. We will definitely use her again if we purchase another home in the Columbus area! Highly recommend both Marci Press and Home Central Realty!!
Testimonial Letter - September 2016
There is no other Realtor I would trust more than Marci!! My husband and I were in need of relocating from Florida to Ohio in 30 days. Marci gladly took on our challenge and put our mind at ease every step of the way. Her communication skills are top notch! Had we not found the perfect Realtor we would have been in a very stressful situation. One of my favorite things about working with Marci is her positive attitude that is infectious. She is a phenomenal negotiator and takes any amount of time needed to explain all forms and scenarios to you as a client. She truly cares about her clients and puts their needs first. Marci even took the time to follow up with us after closing to see how we liked our new home. We were so fortunate to get to work with her and will be her clients as long as were here!
Marci was so wonderful to work with. She is extremely professional and works diligently to get everything you want. She is a go-getter and we are so glad we went with Marci to assist us in buying our house. If we ever need to sell our house, we will absolutely use Marci as our realtor.
Testimonial Letter - July 2016
Marci was a pro from beginning to end! She helped me get the house ready to show, kept me informed at least weekly, and was great when it came time to sign a contract. She kept in contact with the other realtors showing the house and kept me informed about each showing. I have sold 3 other houses previously and always had a major glitch along the way; however, with Marci there were absolutely no problems. If I were to sell or buy another house in Columbus, she would be my first call!
Hello, When I first met Marci Press, I knew 100% that she was the individual that would sell my property. Marci Press is an awesome negotiator, she knows her profession, and takes a proactive approach to closing an creating a successful outcome in real estate. Marci Press is not only very knowledgeable but also has an A-1 personality to boot. I will recommend Marci Press to my friends and colleagues, also, call Marci Press of Home Central Realty again, myself. Thanks, Pat
Marci is a great person and an excellent realtor. I used her for both the purchase and sale of my home and definitely recommend her! She is helpful and responsive.
Testimonial Letter - June 2016
Marci is the hardest working person in the industry and its not even close. You simply cannot argue with her results. Sometimes people would rather use a family friend etc instead of a top ranked professional, I selected Marci Press and got a better deal and I guarantee a better friend.
Working with Marci as our realtor while purchasing our first home was an absolutely wonderful experience. She helped fill in all of the knowledge gaps with it being our first purchase, and made us feel comfortable through the search, the offers, and the closing process. Marci makes herself available literally AT ALL TIMES via phone call, text, and e-mail. Marci's personality is a pleasure to be around and she is a fantastic lady, I could not recommend her services more.
Marci was such a pleasure to work with. She was patient and took the time to find out what we liked to navigate us to the perfect home! We felt we could call her at any time and ask questions. She was high energy and advocated for us through the negotiation process. I would And have recommended Marci to others. We love our new home!
If you would like the perfect realtor, Marci Press is the one. She is a hard worker, helpful and very knowledgeable about real estate and procedures. Marci has exceptional experience and is very dedicated to her clients.
Testimonial Letter - February 2016
I sold my property after I had already moved out of town. Marci did a great job of de-cluttering the place to enhance its appeal without me having to return. She also handled all the negotiations and financial matters in a professional manner. I'm completely satisfied with how this sale was handled.
Testimonial Letter - December 2015
We had a wonderful experience selling our home with Marci. The first thing she did was give ideas on what buyers are looking for. Then she hired a stager who was awesome as well. With their help we were able to get our home ready to sell. When the house went into contract things became tense due to the buyers realtor being very rude. Marcie was able to "calm me down" even though I wanted to end negotiations. She is a skillful negotiator with a very calm personality. She was always respectful of our wishes and was excellent in explaining each step of the process. We would definitely use Marci again.
Marci is an amazing person. She knows her real estate very well. She went above and beyond for us to get the home that we loved. She's always responsive to her emails and phone calls. We were always able to get a hold of her when we needed to. She showed us many many houses during our house search and relentlessly worked to get us the dream home that we currently own. She's a great negotiator as well. I highly recommend Marci Press for anyone that's buying house/condo. She's the best in the area. Contact her and she will find you your dream home.
Testimonial Letter - November 2015
Marci was great to work with in the sale of our home. She helped us to get top dollar for our home and it went into contract within a couple days of going on the market. She did a great job of explaining the process and going through each of the steps with us. She also made herself available any time that we had questions including when she was out of state on vacation. She definitely works hard to provide the best service possible. I would recommend her to my family and friends.
Testimonial Letter - September 2015
My experience with Marci was overwhelmingly positive. She is knowledgeable, intuitive, and highly personable. Most important she was responsive to my questions and concerns at every stage, and addressed my worries with reassurance. I look forward to working with her again when I sell my current residence in the Spring.
Marci helped us sell our first home. It was an antique home in a neighborhood with crazy demand and market prices that were blowing minds. As first timers, Marci helped educate us on where our home really stood and what we needed to do to make it market ready. Even when we didn't understand the feedback coming from our showings, Marci kept us informed (and from making rash choices). Everything was so smooth and easy that after we'd prepped the house for sale all we had to do was get out of the way of any potential buyers and be ready to sign documents. With most of the documents (until closing) being signed electronically, the whole sale was very fast and incredibly smooth.
Without Marci, we could very easily have made some very bad choices in a very good market. Without a doubt, from listing to sale everything went like we were filming a tv commercial. Nothing goes that smoothly. Ours did.
Testimonial Letter - August 2015
The Golden Door award goes to Marci Press! She is an A+ superstar and hands down THE agent to work with in Central Ohio. Marci is an excellent communicator, handles the ins and outs of the sale from start to finish, and even has time to laugh and enjoy the process. I can't imagine having anyone else on my side. You will be well-represented and can rely on her experience, dedication, and team of professionals to help the process of selling a home move along and get you the best price. Her communication style and frequency is unmatched in my experience. I was always kept in the loop and the next step, plan B (or C) was always thought out. When she says trust her, do it! I couldn't recommend her more strongly. Make sure you give Marci and her Home Central Realty team the chance to represent you in your real estate transaction.
Thank you, Marci, for transforming this complex process into a memorable journey. I am truly impressed by your professionalism, friendship and care through this sale.
All the best!
Marci was such a pleasure to work with! I felt like she really went out of her way to make sure my husband and I found a house that we loved. I would definitely recommend Marci to anyone looking for a house!
Testimonial Letter - July 2015
Marci was wonderful to work with. I never had a realtor who was so proactive and helpful through this process. She went beyond expectations.
The house was listed and sold at a good selling price within 6 weeks of me contacting her.
I will definitely recommend Marci to anyone needing any type of real estate help.
Testimonial Letter - June 2015
Marci was absolutely outstanding. We had no previous experience when we bought our first house and she walked us through every step. She took the time to explain every little thing and always made sure that we were comfortable with and understood exactly what was going on. She laid out a timeline for us from the beginning and stuck with it. I have gladly and confidently recommended her to others. Thank you, Marci!
Marci was the perfect companion for our first home purchase! She pinpointed exactly where we should be, she let us expand beyond that area, and then come back to it when we realized that she was right all along. She provided us with amazing service, we always felt like we were her only client. We'd provide her with a list of 6 homes at lunch, and that night we'd be walking through them. She provided the perfect amount of advice and guidance, but let us come to our own conclusions. The whole relationship was very much a partnership and we could not have asked for a better person to guide us through this process. Would (and will be) highly recommend Marci to anyone.
Testimonial Letter - May 2015
Marci is the consummate professional. She is a tireless worker always wanting to ensure our satisfaction. She was very prompt with all her responses to our questions and inquiries. She was aggressive but not pushy. I would highly recommend Marci for any of your real estate needs. We used her services to purchase a condo. Give her a try, you won't be disappointed.
Beth & Mark Workman
I am very impressed by the services Marci and her team provided, very knowledgeable, supportive and honest. My house went into contract next day after listing it and sold within a month. I live in Texas, we never met face to face, so she handled/took care of EVERYTHING for me. I am very grateful and definitely recommend Marci Press and her team. Thank you Marci.
Testimonial Letter - April 2015
Marci was very professional and trustworthy. She helped us get the house of our dreams and was very patient and quick to respond! I would definitely recommend her for anyone buying or selling their house.
Marci helped me to buy my first home, and 4 years later, when I was ready to sell it, she had it in contract in less than 2 weeks for the asking price. Marci is honest, knowledgable, patient, thorough, confident, and above all kind. During the time we worked together to sell my first home and purchase my second, she made herself so available at any time of the day or night that I felt like I was her only client. She was always on my side and did not rest until I had found my dream home. I will never work with any other realtor.
Testimonial Letter - March 2015
Ms. Press was very professional in the selling of our property. We were very impressed with all the information she had in our process. She was able to give us so much information in getting our property sold. We had several conversations with Ms. Press during the process. She kept us updated on showings, how and what other properties in our area were moving.
We will strongly recommend Ms. Press to others.
Testimonial Letter - January 2015
I cannot give Marci enough praise. I am a real estate investor who lives out of state. Marci gave me a reasonable expectation of what to expect from the Beginning of the process, she was aggressive in pricing, and marketing the property. She would call me regularly to give me an update, even when there was no new news. Marci was professional in every aspect, and I wish more Agents had her work ethic, professionalism, and courtesy. I’m sure you will get an honest assessment and someone who has your best interest in mind.
My wife and I choose Marci on a friends recommendation. She impressed us with her superior knowledge of how a home should be prepared for sale. Her rapid response and solutions to our questions was very impressive. The homes were prepared per her requests and were under contract within three days. Yes, I used plural homes as she sold two for us and both were under contract within three days. I would highly recommend Marci to anyone selling or buying a home.
Larry & Ludmila
As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and wanted someone who was patient in guiding us through the process. We wanted an agent that made time for us and would listen to our specifics in what we wanted in a home. My husband and I faced a challenge in working at opposite ends of the city and were looking for a middle ground for our commute. We also had to have a home with a soul that reflected our personalities. Marci immediately accepted our challenge. She let us know that she was available whenever we needed her and assured us that she was on our team. She educated us in what to look for in homes and really took our interests to heart. We found our new home within days of it being listed on the market. We are very happy with our purchase and highly recommend you seek Marci to help you find your new dream home. You will always be impressed with Marci!
Testimonial Letter - November 2014
Marci explained in great detail every step of the process. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had as quickly as possible. My property was in contract just days after it was listed! I highly recommend this professional, intelliegent, realtor! I will never use anyone else!
Testimonial Letter - October 2014
Marci is the kind of agent I would refer EVERYONE to work with! She is honest, caring and kept us informed every step of the way. She became like family in the few short months we worked together. I can't imagine buying or selling a home without an agent like Marci on your side. Thanks Marci - you ROCK!!
It was a pleasure to work with Marci Press. She is truly a professional. She listened to my requirements and showed me a long list of properties to choose from. She was extremely supportive of my schedule and worked with other agents to allow me to view all the properties that I was interested in. She was communicative to a fault. Her Customer Service is like none that you will find with any other agent. From start to finish Marci is the agent that you want on your team. Marci, you made my transition to OH a pleasurable experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart....
Testimonial Letter - September 2014
Marci was very responsive to our needs as first-time homebuyers. She made sure we knew exactly what to do during each process of buying our home. She checked on us frequently, often just to see if we needed anything. She offered her professional advice, which was much-appreciated, but also didn't try to rush or pressure us. Marci is always enthusiastic and is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and process. You really can't go wrong!
I read reviews of several agents in the area before I decided to work with Marci.. and she did not disappoint! Marci went above and beyond in making sure we understand the home buying process (being first-time homebuyers), was very patient (we viewed a lot of homes!), flexible, understandable, thoughtful, caring and very professional. When we were ready to make an offer one morning, Marci took us in at lunch time to complete the offer sheet to lock down the home! Offer was accepted and we officially went to contract only an hour or two after we sent the offer! Without Marci's help and expertise, we would not have been able to purchase our home.
It has been a pleasure working with Marci and if given the opportunity to work her again, we will not hesitate to reach out to her to BE M PRESSED once again! Till then, we highly recommend Marci to anyone looking for the best of the best agents out there.
My wife & I met Marci two years ago through a mutual business contact and although at that time we were not ready to buy our first home we were impressed by her ability to cater to our needs that we called her back when we were ready to buy our home. Professionally, Marci is well versed in the day to day activities of the real estate business. She was prompt to answer all my questions and provided her professional advice as we navigated through our first home purchase. As a person, Marci is caring, kind and fun to be around. I would highly recommend her as your agent.
Thanks for all you did Marci!

Testimonial Letter - July 2014
Marci is hands on as a realtor she lets you know all of the process and walks you through. She suggested things to do to make the house sell. The house sold within 30 days. I would use Marci Press again no questions asked. In my book she is the best.
It is my pleasure to give high praise to Marci Press. She represented me in the sale of my house, and though my circumstances were difficult (in the midst of divorce), Marci was perfect.
She's everything you want in a realtor -- professional, caring, knowledgeable, and extremely patient. Marci knows her stuff; we had two offers within 36 hours of listing.
FWIW: I did not select Marci -- my (future) ex-spouse did. Best decision ever.
I can and will give my 100% recommendation of Marci to anyone needing a realtor.
It was nothing but smooth sailing through the entire home purchase process thanks to Marci. She thoroughly covered all salient concerns, promptly responded to inquiries and scheduled necessary events, favorably addressed things I would have never even considered, then hammered out the sale in no time flat.
A+ professional service. I'd highly recommend.
Marci Press is a very knowledgeable, professional realtor. Marci knows the real estate market; her suggestions and recommendations landed us a buyer in two days. She guided us through the sale of our condo, kept us informed on the progress of the listing, provided us with a list of reputable, certified contractors to meet inspection requirements and walked us through the closing.
I highly recommend Marci Press to sale my home, I was very IMPRESSED with her and Home Central Realty.
As soon as Marci was given the go ahead to help me sell my Mom's house it was smooth sailing even with all that is involved with selling a house. She made things convenient for me to sign forms and made some calls for me to set up appointments. She surrounds herself with an excellent staff that gets the job done. She will go out of her way to take care of things and works even on the weekends to keep things moving. She knows how to take care of business! I was impressed.
Marci assisted me in buying a new home that I love! Marci is dependable, always did what you said she would do and in a timely manner. She was thorough and accurate in her work. Her communication was complete and she made sure I understood what she said. I greatly appreciated her patience with me as I was uncertain of exactly what and where I was looking for a house. She provided me with insight regarding locations, etc. I value her professional opinion and continue to work with her to sell my current home.
Marci was very helpful on anything we needed.She went above and beyond the call of duty,like from day one she advised us what to leave in the house so it would sell.She kept us updated on all the potential buyers that went through the house and when it did go into contract,she kept us updated on everything possible.A very professional realtor from start to finish!!
We worked with Marci Press in the Spring of 2013, when she helped us purchase a new home and sell our existing home. Our experience with Marci was excellent all around! This was the first time that we had ever sold a home, so we had to be walked through the process from start to finish. Marci was with us every step of the way. She provided valuable insight on the market, as well as advice on staging our house to make the best first impression on potential buyers. Meanwhile, we began working with Marci to find our new home in a difficult, very competitive market. She was a tireless advocate for us. We looked at numerous potential homes and Marci did a great job with providing professional insight while still remaining focused ultimately on our wants, needs and budget. She went above and beyond in seeking out potential homes for us in a somewhat limited market and also did her best to get us in to see homes as fast as possible, even on short notice. When we finally found the home for us Marci made the contract and negotiation process as smooth as possible. She provided valuable insight on comparable prices, as well as the best approach for negotiating in a tough, seller’s market. She expertly handled all of the details from our first offer all the way through home inspections and the closing process, while keeping us involved and informed. It was a great partnership. When we listed our existing home we received an offer within two days and were in contract within four! Again, Marci made the process as smooth as possible, while remaining sensitive to the emotions involved with selling a home (our first!) It is our great pleasure to give the highest recommendation to Marci Press. She is a true professional: timely, knowledgeable, collaborative, courteous and effective. She is also a warm and engaging person as well. We would absolutely use her services again!

Testimonial Letter - June 2014
Marci was referred to us by a friend who was relocated out of state and had an excellent experience selling her home. Marci is a professional and understands the business thoroughly. She does her homework and works with you, leaving no stone unturned. She is prompt and energetic. Marci is in constant communication with you, whether it's something she needs to get with you about or a question you may have...she is on it! Our home sold in three months. We appreciate Marci and her team and would recommend her highly.
I have worked with Marci, both in buying and selling my home. Each time she paid close attention to detail and always looked out for my best interest. She made herself available around my very unpredictable work schedule and did it with a smile. I would never use anyone else!
I have used Marci to list several properties and to buy several properties, and she has done an excellent job on both types of transactions. She is very professional, knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend her to prospective clients.
Marci stuck with us through one of the worst winters we can remember. We looked at so many houses together over seven months. She always maintained that when we see "our" house, we will know it. The market was real competitive for buyers, houses were selling in days. When my wife and I saw the listing for the house we purchased, Marci got us in to see the home within 3 hours of the house going up for sale. We then met Marci at her office at 9pm that night to put in our offer. We knew this was our house and without Marci's hard work and market knowledge, we never would have gotten to where we are now. Thank you so much Marci
Our experience with Marci couldn't have been better. Marci hit the ground running with our search for a condo. She handled every detail in a timely, thorough and successful manner. She responds quickly to emails, texts, phone calls, etc. I'm not quite sure how she does that, but she does! Her negotiation skills are unbelievably effective. Her style and knowledge got us through some challenges along the way.
She was extra attentive with my brother who was the buyer. He has a disability that could have impaired the process, but Marci was patient and went the extra mile for him.
Even after the purchase, Marci has been readily available for follow up questions/situations involving the property. Above and beyond, to say the least.
I highly, highly recommend Marci Press to be anyone's next realtor.
Testimonial Letter - May 2014
When looking to move from our small apartment into our first home, we called Marci Press, who had helped my wife's parents sell and purchase their home. All I can say is WOW! Marci professionally handled the process from start to finish, explaining everything in extraordinary detail to us first time buyers. She is extremely kind, responsive and truly wanted to find us the perfect home! I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy or sell!!!
We had such a great experience working with Marci! Being as young as my husband and I are with no prior knowledge about Real Estate she was so helpful in explaining things and being honest about everything. She gave great insight about things and was so helpful in helping us find our first home and we couldnt be happier with our experience. I heard about her from my parents who she helped sell their house and find them their new house and they loved her so much it was no question who we were going to go to! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!
Testimonial Letter - April 2014
Marci listed our house on a Wednesday and on Friday we had a contract. She was very professional and knowledgeable of the area. The photos taken were of exceptional quality and depicted the house to the utmost. We were totally amazed at her ability to sell this house in such a short period. We will definitely recommend her to anyone that is selling their home. Marci if you read this, "Thank you very much".
My wife and I recently moved to Columbus from 1,200 miles away. We trusted Marci completely with our house search and she came through for us 110%. She knew the town very well, got to know our needs and matched us up with a home we love. She was there for us 24/7 and worked tirelessly for us. We could not have picked a better Realtor.
Marci did a great job on selling my mom's house who passed away at the end of year. She was compassionate, friendly and made the process very simple and quick. Marci was also very helpful and made this process very easy for our family in a very difficult time.
thank you, Doug Martin
Testimonial Letter - February 2014
Marci is a true professional. Her response time to answer and return phone calls was quick and her timing of all situations was excellent. She knows her business and didn't burden us with details; she handled them herself.
She sold our house in under three weeks and we couldn't be more impressed with her.
As out-of-state buyers, Marci went above and beyond the call of duty. She visited the home while it was under construction, took pictures and sent them to us and kept us up to date on the progress of the building process. She also communicated with the builder for us and helped us every step of the way. She always made herself available when we came to town and took many worries off of our shoulders. Marci is very kind, thoughtful and wonderful to work with. It was often very difficult to communicate with the builder, but Marci stepped in and got the information we needed. I don't know if we could have completed the process without her. We would recommend Marci to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home.
Testimonial Letter - January 2014
Marci is a dedicated pro. She knows the market, she follows up and treats clients as friends. She gave us ideas on showing our house without being negative and was respectful of our opinions. Marci was always on time and always upbeat.
If you are looking for someone who knows her business, I'd recommend Marci Press.
Testimonial Letter - November 2013
I was in a financial bind and called Marci about selling my house. She worked tirelessly throughout the sale and I got just what I wanted out of the price. There were some tough negotiations, and Marci handled everything.
I had tons of showings and open houses and was in contract in a month.
She was in contact with me about all aspects of the sale, and had excellent suggestions on how to proceed with everything. She gave me great recommendations on who to call for quick fixes also.
I HIGHLY recommend Marci Press as a real estate agent.
Marci Press is AMAZING!!!!
I decided to list my house with Marci after she successfully sold my mother's house in 11 days. I knew my home in Blacklick would be a tougher sale - but not for Marci. My house sold in 30 days!! Her advertising is top notch!
Marci then helped me find my new home. Through ice, snow, mud , rain and other obstacles she traveled to help me find my perfect home. She never lost her patience with my indecisiveness and always made me feel like I was her top priority.
Marci kept me informed of everything that was happening with the sale of my current home and the purchase of my new home every step of the way. She was always available (weekends and late night) to take my calls and answer my questions.
I would highly recommend Marci to anyone wanting to buy and sell. It's unfortunate you don't need a realtor in your day to day life, but that's ok, because I have found a friend.
Marci was an amazing Real Estate Professional. She knew her stuff and researched the area as well as comparable sales, units that were similar to our interests and other areas we hadn't considered.
She was responsive and honest. She was a great negotiator.
I would use and recommend Marci to anyone looking for an agent in the Greater Columbus area.
Marci was a pleasure to work with. She was knowledgeable, helpful, professional and extremely accommodating. We felt confident with the advice and information she gave. Furthermore, she listened to our requests and our concerns. She helped us find the PERFECT home, and we would recommend her without reservation.
I called Marci after two other realtors tried to sell my house. She sold it within a month. Marci is honest and helps you "stage" the house so it will sell faster. My experience with marci was nothing but professional. When we were closing she walked me through it step by step. I always felt I was in Marci's best interest. Marci Press is a wonderful realtor because she is a "people" person.
I would and have recommended her to my friends and family for the sale of their house.
Marci helped me through the process of buying my first home. As a young, first time buyer, she really helped make the process less stressful and more enjoyable. She always makes herself available to her clients and is always willing to help out in any way she can and answer any questions you may have. I really don't think I could have had a better experience with anyone else. I will definitely recommend her any chance I get. If I ever look to move in the future, she will be the first person I call both to look for a new home and to sell my current home.
Marci went above and beyond my expectations selling my house. I was relocated out of state and she made me feel like we were side by side throughout the entire process. I had numerous showing thanks to the professional way she listed my home. I wouldn't think twice about using Marci again or recommending her to my family or friends, she gets the job done!
Testimonial Letter - September 2013
I recently sold my home in Columbus. I had contacted one agent who was highly rated and he came with a preset value on my home. Lower than I thought my home was worth. A friend then suggested Marci Press. She was professional and yet very friendly to work with. She had sold numerous homes in my neighborhood. My home sold quickly and for more than the previous agent wanted to list it. Marci was very accurate on her estimate of how much my home would sell for and how quickly. She held my hand through the whole process. I was very pleased with Marci and would highly recommend her.
We worked with Marci to both purchase a new home and sell our current home. She is an absolute professional in every aspect of the word. She made it her priority to be there for us every step of the way when we were dealing with a difficult housing market and always had our best interests in mind. She was very accessible and responsive. We spent quite a few months trying to get the right house for us and she always gave us 110%. Once we found the house we were looking for, she assisted us with selling our old house. We received an offer within two days of listing and from the very first showing. She offered excellent advice on staging our home and handled all of the contract negotiations in a very professional manner. I would definitely recommend working with Marci and we would use her again if need be!
Marci was a complete professional through all aspects of the sale! She readily offered solutions & other professionals to remedy issues with the home we were selling when they arose, above & beyond the expectation.
I have already given her card to a co-worker that is planning on buying soon, and would only consider her when in need of a Real Estate Professional in the future.
I know several other real estate agents, (we have 5 rental properties), and have had several real estate experiences over the years. None can compare to this one with Ms. Press!
We met Marci at an open house and although that house wasn't the right fit for us, we pretty much knew right away that we wanted to work with her. She was so knowledgeable in the area of town in which we were interested, which was a main concern of ours. We called her a few days later to set up appointments to look at some houses in the area, and her timing for appointments was very flexible and worked perfectly within our busy schedules. Marci was also great at keeping us informed on what was going on with the market. We started looking right around the time when the shortage of homes for buyers started and so she made sure we were aware that we had to be quick to act (but also encouraged us to be sure the house was right for us and to sit down and talk alone before making an offer). Marci also worked with some of the seller's realtors when we scheduled appointments to make sure we would get to see the house before the seller went into contract.
When it came to putting in our offer, there was another offer against ours and Marci kept us up to date frequently throughout the day and helped us determine what our best and final offer would be which in the end, got us the house!
Marci has an excellent personality and absolutely made the buying process fun. We enjoyed looking at the houses with her and taking in all of her advise from her years if experience in real estate. Marci was very responsive in all communications throughout the process and kept us up to date on anything that was happening on the sellers end. She helped guide us through the process of the offer, counteroffer, securing a loan, inspection, negotiation of repairs after inspection, and finally, the actual closing itself.
We would absolutely recommend Marci to anyone looking to buy in the future. Hopefully we won't be needing her services for a long time, but when we do, we wouldn't hesitate to give her a call!
Marci helped me find my house and later helped me sell it when the time came. I will go to her next year when I am ready to buy again! She is very knowledgeable and very on top of things! She listens and she truly cares about her clients.
Testimonial Letter - August 2013
I can't say enough good about Home Central Realty and Marci Press (Owner-Realtor) . I interviewed the usual suspects and Marci stood out from all the others in her initial interview/presentation. I've dealt with numerous realtors and she is very "Special" a Pro in every way. As she mentioned : " This is NOT a hobby, but my profession"
Marci was a complete professional through all aspects of the sale! She readily offered solutions & other professionals to remedy issues with the home we were selling when they arose, above & beyond the expectation. I have already given her card to a co-worker that is planning on buying soon, and would only consider her when in need of a Real Estate Professional in the future.

Testimonial Letter from LinkedIn - July 2013
Top qualities: Personable, On Time, High Integrity
“Marci was recommended to me by a friend who knew her capabilities in the Real Estate market. She was able to find a home to my liking in Gahanna within my price range and negotiated with the sellers to meet my tight time frame. The whole process was smoothly and aggressively handled by Marci and I would recommend her to anybody who needs a stress free transition.” July 30, 2013
My family and I engaged Marci Press as our real estate agent following a referral from some friends of ours. We were planning a cross country move from Ohio to Texas and needed to sell our house as quickly as possible. We knew after our first meeting that we were in good hands. From beginning to end she was there to guide us through every step of selling our first home. She worked until all hours of the night to get our house listed quickly with the best photos and description possible. Her tireless efforts produced a full price offer and contract within 24 hours of listing. Marci walked us through every action all the way through closing. We left the closing table in a moving truck to Texas and she even wanted to know that we made it home ok. We can’t say enough how M PRESSED we are with Marci’s extraordinary ability as our agent. Not to mention a as a friend.

Testimonial Letter - Spring 2013
We worked with Marci Press in the Spring of 2013, when she helped us purchase a new home and sell our existing home. Our experience with Marci was excellent all around! This was the first time that we had ever sold a home, so we had to be walked through the process from start to finish. Marci was with us every step of the way. She provided valuable insight on the market, as well as advice on staging our house to make the best first impression on potential buyers.
Meanwhile, we began working with Marci to find our new home in a difficult, very competitive market. She was a tireless advocate for us. We looked at numerous potential homes and Marci did a great job with providing professional insight while still remaining focused ultimately on our wants, needs and budget. She went above and beyond in seeking out potential homes for us in a somewhat limited market and also did her best to get us in to see homes as fast as possible, even on short notice.
When we finally found the home for us Marci made the contract and negotiation process as smooth as possible. She provided valuable insight on comparable prices, as well as the best approach for negotiating in a tough, seller’s market. She expertly handled all of the details from our first offer all the way through home inspections and the closing process, while keeping us involved and informed. It was a great partnership.
When we listed our existing home we received an offer within two days and were in contract within four! Again, Marci made the process as smooth as possible, while remaining sensitive to the emotions involved with selling a home (our first!)
It is our great pleasure to give the highest recommendation to Marci Press. She is a true professional: timely, knowledgeable, collaborative, courteous and effective. She is also a warm and engaging person as well. We would absolutely use her services again!

To Whom It May Concern
We recently worked exclusively with Marci Press and Home Central Realty on the sale of our home in the Preserve and the purchase of a new home in New Albany Links. She was extremely informed about the markets and always went the extra distance to satisfy our questions and request for information. From the beginning of our working relationship with Marci, we knew the experience was going to be successful. Marci sold our home in a very competitive market, very close to our list price in under 60 days and assisted us in the successful purchase of a new home through a relocation company which was not and easy transaction. The entire process of listing our home, selling our home and moving into our new home took under 3 months. We felt confident and secure that we had the right real estate professional on our team through the entire process. Several contingencies had to be met in order for all the pieces to fall into place. Marci was on top and ahead of all the issues and kept us properly informed and advised us on complicated issues. She earned our trust from the beginning and became our friend by the end. If you're looking to get results and work with a pro, go with Marci Press.

We drove all over town looking and then going back and looking again - needless to say I struggled with deciding! Marci never added pressure or made me feel as though any of the trips were a waste of time, but instead, each were a valuable fact gaining mission.
With all of her time, attention, wisdom and effort, I am in a home I love and feel good to go home to! I tell all my friends about her great service!
Testimonial Letter - December 2012
My wife and I engaged Marci Press of Home Central Realty to help us both find a new home and sell our previous home. We were impressed by Marci at every step of the process.
Marci took the time to meet with us to get a preliminary sense of what we were looking for and what our goals were. After that, we were off to the races looking at new homes with Marci.
We really appreciated that Marci did not just show us houses, she educated us throughout the process. Thanks to Marci, we learned what to expect from houses in our price range. That was enormously helpful in gauging whether a house was overpriced or a good deal.
My wife and I ended up looking at quite a few houses because we were looking for just the right place to call home. Marci never lost patience with us and always remained hopeful and cheerful. She also helped us explore other options (like building a new home). Again, Marci's expertise was of great value when we spoke to builders.
People tend to be afraid that realtors will be pushy and just interested in selling you a house as quickly as possible. Marci is not like that at all. She always had our best interests in mind. Marci will earn your trust every step of the way.
Thanks to Marci, we found a beautiful house that we now call home.
Because my wife and I were unsure how long it would take to find a new house, we asked Marci not to market our old home until we bought a new house. Unbelievably, once we gave Marci the green light, she had a buyer lined up for our old home so fast that we closed on our old home about a month after buying our new home. In this market, selling a condo that fast is nothing short of amazing (especially when there were one or two other units for sale in our building!).
Marci always made herself available and answered all of our questions, no matter how silly. She responded promptly to any questions or comments.
I recommend Marci Press without reservation. We will certainly call on her for our future real estate needs.

Testimonial Letter - November 2012
I called Marci Press after noticing that her real estate business sold
two houses on my street within a month. My home had been on the market
twice previously over the last two years, with no results. I had been
recently widowed and never bought or sold a home on my own. I needed
someone who could get results- someone I could trust.
Once I had the opportunity to meet with her, I was convinced she was a
professional. Her manner made me feel quite comfortable, as she
patiently explained to me the 'what, why and how' things are done. Marci
offered suggestions regarding 'staging', and pictures were taken of my
home that were quite flattering to the unconventional floor plan.
That very weekend I had 2 offers .
I always felt and knew that I was her first priority.
She always returned phone calls promptly, making herself always
available to address any concerns I may have had.
The other homes Marci showed me were always the type I wanted - always
within my price range.
I would consistently recommend Marci Press to anyone buying or selling a
home. My experience with her was nothing but superb.
I not only had a wonderful real estate agent, but I have also gained a
Testimonial Letter - July 2012
After living in our Gahanna home for about sixteen years, my wife and I decided to move to Cincinnati to be close to family. Although we had sold another house previously (sixteen years ago), our knowledge of the real estate process was rusty and full of holes. The fact that we loved our house and were not emotionally ready to part with it made the prospect of selling it even harder. What we needed was not a cut-and-dry realtor but someone with a sharp brain as well as a compassionate heart. In walks Marci Press of Home Central Realty.
Marci was patient with our questions and respected our attachment to our house. She had great suggestions for staging. Her communication with us--through phone calls, texts and emails--was prompt and clear. She was gentle but firm in her transactions with prospective buyers and their agents. We had many showings and a reasonable offer within six days of listing. From the day we signed the agreement to list the house to the day of closing, Marci supervised each phase with excellent attention to detail. We wholeheartedly recommend Marci and Home Central to anyone looking for a realtor who combines professionalism with humanity.
Ray and Lauri Nandyal
Thank you for the terrific job you did in selling our condo! This is a very challenging market for selling a condo and we really appreciate all your efforts on our behalf. To go from listing to closing in less than three months is just incredible in this market! You gave us good advice on pricing and preparing our condo for sale. You also did a great job in marketing our condo. We know that our condo was not a big ticket listing, but we always felt that you were doing your utmost to promote the sale of our property. You were very responsive and kept us well-informed. We cannot thank you enough for making this process so quick and painless. We were referred to you by a friend and you can be sure we will be enthusiastically recommending you to others in need of a real estate agent. It was simply a pleasure working with you. You are the best!

I wanted to say thank you for selling our house so quickly and for all the time and hard work you put towards that end. I really appreciate the tons of communication from the emails, voice mails, and texts, and for consistently meeting with us to make sure we knew everything and felt comfortable with all that was going on.
We were very happy that our house sold, but sad because there were so many memories in that house, on that street and in that neighborhood. It’s weird how we get so attached to wood, brick and cement when there are human memories linked.
Anyway, thanks again and we were very M PRESSED!

We highly recommend Marci Press because she is ethical, analytical, market-savvy, and client-focused. We replaced our first realtor – a big name in town who completely ignored our listing – with Marci after interviewing a number of productive Gahanna-area agents. We had already relocated to Texas for my husband’s job and Marci was the only agent who made herself available via Skype to discuss the marketing of our home. She really understands the power of the internet with regards to home sales right now. Her online marketing was far superior to what we saw from our first realtor. Likewise, she used traditional print (postcards) to keep our home in the minds of the residents of our greater neighborhood. Marci also took the time to make sure our home was ready for all the showings she produced for us. It was always easy to reach Marci by phone or text and we were in frequent communication in the short 5 weeks it took her to secure a contract for our house. Marci understands how to price a home in this buyers market. She pays close attention to the competition for each of her listings. We were happy she helped us shorten the sales cycle for our home compared with our competition in the midst of a very challenging home sale market.

Testimonial Letter - December 2011
I am a 24 year old accountant who recently purchased my first home. During such an enormous decision, I needed a realtor who would provide me with honest advice and emotional support. Buying a house with Marci was the best decision I’ve ever made.
I confided in Marci during our first meeting that I was not at all sure about my decision to purchase rather than rent. I was attracted to the financial prospect of owning, but I was scared, as I knew the decision was a huge commitment. Marci’s professional expertise and motherly nature were just what I needed to lead me to the right decision.
It is obvious that Marci is good at what she does, not because of her desire to make a sale, but because of her passion for helping people. She finds fulfillment in making others happy, and she did not allow me to make my purchase until we were both sure that it was the best choice for me.
I love my home and I am so thankful that Marci was at my side throughout the whole ordeal. Marci’s greatest gift is that she truly cares, and I will never be able to express how important her support was during a momentous time in my life.
Testimonial Letter from Jenny Bickley and Neale Murray - January 2012
The process of house hunting was a daunting one for our family, as this was our first time buying property in this country. Fortunately, we were lucky enough to meet Marci Press of Home Central Realty at an open house that we attended. Marci is a highly responsive and approachable agent, who guided us down the very LONG path to a house that we love.
At such an important time in our lives, we were lucky to have someone we could trust and someone who genuinely wanted the best for our family.
Thank you Marci
Testimonial Letter - November 2011
We want to offer our deepest gratitude for all the work you did for us in helping us find our way home. We have been looking for a property like this for the last 10 years, and we are so happy to be here!
Your tremendous amount of expertise and valuable resources made a most challenging situation a mere project to be worked through. Our buying process was interesting, to say the least, and we honestly feel your tireless effort, persistence, and personal commitment is what made it possible for this transaction to close.
We cannot say enough about your honesty, integrity, positive attitude, and encouragement. You have a rare talent of believing in what could be possible while maintaining realistic expectations. Communicating that talent through to your clients is an even more admirable gift. That is why you will be the ONLY Realtor to whom we will emphatically recommend strangers, acquaintances, colleagues, clients, friends, and especially family.
Thank you from the bottom of our heart for being so good at what you do and for sharing that gift with us.
Our very best regards and deepest thanks,

Testimony for Marci Press with deepest appreciation from Tracey Ballas!
This is undeniably one of the most difficult times in our nation's history to sell one's home. So now, more than ever, we needed a realtor who could get the job done. That person was Marci Press!
Most people know someone with a real estate license. However few know a consummate real estate professional the likes of Marci.
She cared about us as clients and treated us as people, rather than a means to a commission.
Her clear and faithful communication was helpful and comforting. I trusted her to represent our needs when discussing issues with potential buyers and other realtors.
She understood that good marketing leads to sales, so she provided a top notch real estate photographer to capture the character of each room and the charm of our outdoor space. She transformed those images into an eye catching brochure and MLS page to entice potential buyers to take the next step.
No matter how many clients Marci was serving, she personally handled every showing and open house. She instinctly knew how to balance stepping back to give a potential buyer space to look and converse with asking questions and providing pertinent information.
Marci exuded such warmth, humor, tenacity and positive energy that at times I forgot how stressful selling a home can be.
Marci is the secret weapon to selling a home in any neighborhood and any economy!
Testimonial Letter - August 2011
It has been delightful to work with you the past few months as you helped us find our new home, offered suggestions as we readied our “old” home for sale, and represented us in selling our home from listing to closing in less than three months! You presented our home for sale well and facilitated the sale supportively during a challenging “buyer’s market.” We were so “M Pressed” at your timely responses to ALL our questions and concerns. Your excellent advice and many contacts were extremely helpful to us at every step during our real estate ventures. We will happily direct our friends to you knowing they will benefit from working with an outstanding and dedicated professional. Thank you for making our real estate experiences such positive experiences.

As first time home buyers/owners, my husband and I knew nothing about the ownership process. We needed help – professional help. This is where Marci Press of Home Central Realty came into our lives. What a blessing she was and still is.
Marci is knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and friendly and we love her. She is the best! We are so thankful for her and her help.
The purchase of our home went very smoothly and quickly. We love our new home and can’t thank Marci enough.

Testimonial Letter - June 2011
I just wanted to say thank you for making the sale of my home during these economic times a pleasurable experience. You were my realtor when I purchased my home in Dublin, Ohio a few years ago…..and I knew I made the right choice when I asked you and your company to represent me in selling my home, as it sold earlier this year.
You assessed a fair value for my home and planned a well thought out approach in selling it in such a very competitive market in this area. You responded quickly, put me at ease, and kept the process moving forward always in a very professional manner.
The published photographs your team took representing my home, the open houses at key times, the competitive price on my home and your understanding of the real estate market proved to be the right moves in selling my home at the opportune time and at the right price. I am very pleased.
Much success to you and your company in the years to come.
