About Christine

I am an (almost) lifelong Dayton resident, and have lived in all areas of Dayton. I am a retired City of Dayton Police employee with an impeccable work ethic. I will LISTEN to you, I will work hard for you, I will make you and the buying or selling of your home my top priority! I have a lifelong love of traveling and try to do as much as I can. I am a 'crazy dog lady' and have two beagles (Cozy and Franklin) that run our household. I am a diehard football fan (go Bucks!) and love spending time with my husband and friends watching football! I am married and have a son and an 9 year old granddaughter. I started in real estate as a 'retirement' job when I retired from the City of Dayton Police, but it quickly became a passion of mine and is a full time part of my life. It is my goal for every buyer and seller I work with to leave our transaction knowing they had 100% of my attention and a 100% great real estate experience. I was honored with a perfect 5 star rating from my relocation clients last year, and my goal is to achieve that level of client satisfaction every year.

About David

Having grown up in the Dayton area I’ve lived here my entire life. I graduated from Wright State University with a Masters of Business Administration degree. During school I worked for myself cutting grass and landscaping so a move to real estate was kind of natural in the sense that the real estate field allows you to “cut your own path” so to speak. So, in 1993 I studied, took my test and received my license. Things have gone well since then. So well, in fact, that I was named as an Associate Partner in 2004. Most of my family lives in the Dayton area so I think I’ll stay around for a while. Outside of real estate my biggest interest has to be automotive. I really enjoy tinkering on my big block “71” Camaro and “86” Corvette Pace Car.

About Rhoda

I have been in the real estate industry for over 14 years, since graduating from the University of Colorado with a BS in Finance. My early career years were spent as a loan officer helping clients with the financing of their home. My occasional opportunity to help clients select the best home for them was personally very rewarding and resulted in a career change for me as a licensed real estate agent. I enjoy assisting clients to buy and sell their homes in the Dayton area.

Laurie Westheimer
Coldwell Banker Heritage
About Laurie

I have been passionate about real estate for as long as I can remember. So many of the stories we tell are about the idea of "home." But, as is the case for so many, I did not just grow up and become a Realtor. I actually had several careers before landing in this field, but that experience definitely helps with the many hats I wear with this career. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in English Literature with a plan of going to law school. Instead, I spent 15 working as a Litigation Paralegal where my duties spanned from interviewing accused criminals (in jail), to preparing and serving paperwork, to finally writing motions and managing complex commercial litigation files with paperwork that took up entire rooms and clients who were often worried about the outcome of their lives and livelihoods. I left that world to try my hat as an entrepreneur and I owned a popular and successful boutique for almost 10 years. In that span of time, I also was asked to be the marketing and public relations/media manager for a professional soccer team. Why do I mention all of this past experience? Because being a Realtor is not just about opening doors for people and looking at homes. It requires strong communication skills (speaking, writing and listening), patience and understanding working with people who are in emotionally charged situations and who don't always see eye-to-eye. It takes solid organization and management skills as well as an understanding of the contracts and forms and timelines to keep transactions together. It also takes the ability to advocate for clients and negotiate even in the most challenging and uncomfortable of situations. It also requires strong knowledge and "tech-savviness" in creative marketing and social media. It requires patience and the ability to think outside the box to come up with creative solutions when problems arise. These are all skills I learned and perfected in my various careers before becoming an agent. Becoming an agent is the best decision I have ever made. Since 2015, I have sold over 100 homes and rank within the top 5% of agents in the Dayton/Miami Valley market and across the country. I love working with clients through the entire process from the fun part (looking at homes!) to the more challenging parts. For buyers, that means helping them learn the process from start to finish (even if it is their first time), helping them get financing (sometimes involving credit repair or alternative loan solutions), and writing competitive offers to get the home of their dreams (even in a sellers' market). For sellers, that means coming up with a solid plan on how to get a home sale-ready within a specified timeline and advising them how to get the best price and with the terms that work best for them. It means coming up with a customized marketing plan and campaigns that find the most-likely buyers. For both, it means dealing with inspections and repairs, appraisals and deadlines. Sometimes everything goes smoothly, but even when things get challenging, I have the ability to think on my feet and problem solve. My clients repeatedly compliment me on my creative thinking, dedication, negotiation skills, compassion, professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness, sense of humor and clear communication skills. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I would love to help you with your real estate goals. Looking for additional resources? Check out my website at theWestheimerGroup.com.

Dakota Shannon
Keller Williams
About Dakota

Visit Dakotasells.com Buying or selling a home is a monumentally important transaction, so it makes sense that you want a Realtor that you trust – someone who puts you at ease during a process that can be exhausting. Dakota Shannon understands this. It was his own unpleasant experience with a Realtor when he bought his first property that inspired him to earn his license and help families achieve their dream of finding the ideal home. A Centerville High School graduate, Dakota combines the elements of old school real estate that never go out of style (like genuine, friendly customer service and prompt attention around the clock) with the vital aspects of the industry today (like expert proficiency in implementing Internet, social media and other technological tools to reach the right buyers and sellers). Passion, high energy, due diligence, communication and commitment are traits that Dakota demonstrates and why he is respected as a Realtor you can trust. Raised by a single mother, Dakota Shannon learned the value of hard work; and the importance of character and integrity at a young age. As a boy, he dreamed of owning a house as fast as he could after high school. Becoming a homeowner was a symbol of progress and pride, and he reached that milestone in his early 20s. Inspired by a sincere commitment to providing clients dedicated service and maintaining consistent communication from the first meeting to the closing, Dakota has carved a niche as a Realtor who generates results. The longtime Dayton resident studied business management at Sinclair Community College, and he has a voracious appetite for professional development and personal growth. He is also an avid sand volleyball player, spends abundant time with his beloved dog, Shelby and girlfriend Ashley. And how many Realtors do you know who can represent you as a buyer or a seller, and make you laugh with jokes? Dakota infuses his sense of humor in YouTube videos that offer real estate tips. He was even a performer in The Last Realtor Standing event at Funny Bone Comedy Club. Whether you are buying or selling, Dakota is a Realtor who you can trust to protect your interests in every stage of the process.

Kunal Patel
Coldwell Banker Heritage
About Kunal

From the minute I went into real estate, I knew I wanted to make things easier for my clients. From selling a property to moving into your dream home, I want to make that process as positive and memorable as possible. Too often, moving can become laborious and lengthy, an experience that both sellers and buyers want to avoid. To do this, I look to technology and how it can improve the overall real estate process. That’s why I was the first realtor in the Dayton area to invest in a 3-D tour technology system. This system photographs an entire house and then compiles a 3-D layout of the home that can be uploaded to the Internet and shared with a home’s listing. It allows buyers both local and from afar the chance to ‘walk’ through a home and provides a 360* experience that traditional photos cannot offer. I also utilize electronic document sharing whenever possible. This ensures that documents can be updated, reviewed and signed in real time, without the time lag that paper documents impose. Real estate transactions require a certain amount of work, but my goal is to look at the logistics of each transaction, and provide effective efficiencies wherever possible. As a Dayton native, I have a full understanding of the local area and what each unique community has to offer. Couple that understanding with my formal training and I believe I have both the skills and the organic knowledge of our local area that is needed to be one of the most effective realtors available. A graduate of The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Logistics and a Master of Business Administration from Wright State University, I have advanced my knowledge of business and can effectively tailor it to my clients’ buying and selling needs. I understand the market and what Dayton has to offer and look forward to providing my clients with their best real estate experience possible.
