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 17 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.

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.

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.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Dayton?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Dayton?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Dayton to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Dayton is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
