You were super to work with. Agreeing to have you house staged made all the difference. Old Oaks will not be the same without you, but you have left a legacy that will not be soon be forgotten! Wishing you all the happiness in the world in your retirement home in North Carolina.

Richard Vickers (Seller in Old Oaks)

We’ve partnered with Al on several home purchases and sales.

Appreciate his real estate expertise, knowledge of old homes, local market knowledge, and client responsiveness. Would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell, especially in the OTE area.

The Chamblins (Buyer in Bexley; Seller in Woodland Park)

Al helped us buy and sell a home during our time in Columbus.

He is GREAT and has a real appreciation for older homes. He is also very smart, flexible, and a good communicator. Take all of his advice, we did and got well over our asking price which enabled us to buy our next home outright. We love Al and would definitely do business with him again!

Edward Seigerst (Seller & Buyer in Olde Towne East)

I had a complicated situation in selling my house, and Al did a great job handling it.

He communicated clearly, responded quickly, and I never felt pressured or rushed to accept an offer. I worked with a few other realtors before him, and he is the only one I'd use again or recommend.

Rebecca Jadway Seller in Woodland Park

I would highly recommend Al for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Columbus area!

!! He made the selling process as easy as possible and was just who we needed to help us sell our home at the price we were hoping for. Al was as committed, if not more committed, to sticking to the plan! He was great to work with, always available, committed to process, very much an expert in all things real estate and marketing. Al specializes in historic and higher value homes and has extensive understanding about the Olde Towne East and eastern downtown neighborhoods. Thank you Al for helping us through this process!!

Curtis Thomas (Buyer in German Village)

Positive: Professionalism Al Waddell is such a fantastic relator that I used to twice!

He helped me sell a house in Old Towne East a number of years ago and he just helped me purchase a house in Gahanna. Al is responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness Al is amazing.

.smart, easy to work with, responsive and professional with a really good grasp of the particulars of the market. He provided knowledge, confidence and was very good at coaching us through the process of selling our home as well as advising us how to make our home most desirable to the buyer. He also gave excellent, reasonably priced references to stagers/contractors/repair people when we needed them. Impossible to go wrong with Al. Sharon Pearson Old Oaks

Sharon Pearson (Seller in Old Oaks)

My wife and I got to know Al through a number of open houses that he held throughout the Olde Towne East and Franklin Park neighborhoods.

When we decided to list our home, we didn't even bother to call another agent. Al's expertise in this area is second to none. Many real estate agents claim that they will go above and beyond to market and ultimately sell a home. Unfortunately, many simply just slap a sign in the yard, hire a decent photographer, and put the listing online. Al truly went above and beyond. He hired an excellent photographer and aggressively marketed the property and the open house on a number of different sites (Facebook, Zillow, Realtor, Columbus Dispatch). We had over 60 people through the open house. Al also made some beautiful printed materials of our property for the open house and showings. Keep in mind, these extra costs are on the real estate agent's dime. If you are buying or selling a home in Olde Towne East or Franklin Park, you would be a fool not to talk to Al first.

Drew May (Seller in Franklin Park)

Al represented a buyer who purchased our house, and he was great to work with.

He was knowledgeable about the entire process, provided great representation to his clients and provided good insight during the negotiation process. Al was exceptionally good at communicating to all parties during the sale. If my wife wasn’t a realtor 😊, we would absolutely use Al on future transactions.

Local Guide·32 reviews·10 photos Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value When we wanted to sell a house we owned in Westerville, my wife and I wanted a realtor that we could trust completely.

Al Waddell exceeded our high expectations. His knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail made the sale of this house easy for us. Highly recommended!

Don Hubin (Seller in Westerville)

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I can't imagine a better real estate agent than Al.

He's completely trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable, experienced, patient, and fun to be around.

Andy (Buyer in German Village)

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Al is an exemplary agent.

His passion for helping to protect his clients , whether they are sellers or buyers, is superior to many. His honesty is refreshing and there is no doubt his clients come first. I have seen his negotiation skills , he is able to bring people together which to me is a crucial component of being a great agent. These are my personal opinions and is not necessarily the opinions or beliefs of the company I work for.

Jonathan Sadler Professional Mortgage Lender

Al’s biggest strengths are his composure, knowledge of the area, and professionalism.

He was always available to answer questions and offer solutions. One always walks away from a real estate transaction wondering: could I have done better? While that question is almost always unanswerable, I feel confident that Al gave us the best representation that we could have gotten that led us to a favorable outcome.

"My fiance' and I really lucked out in finding Al. We were first-time buyers and he took as much time as needed to help us along and teach us everything we needed to know. Ended up with a great place. He is very professional, helpful, and very good at what he does. Would use him again if we ever bought or sold in future."

"As a firs time homebuyer, I had no clue how to select a realtor. Luckily Al was my first choice! Al was very helpful throughout the entire process and always available to answer any questions I had throughout our journey. He is extremely honest, and always gave me enough information to give me insight on things that i weren't so clear on. Overall Al is a professional and genuine guy! I highly recommend Mr. Waddell!!"
