We were relocating for work and didn’t know the area at all. We worked with David throughout the beginning of the process remotely (to which end he was very responsive in getting us information proactively), and then met us in person to show us around the areas and homes we singled out. David was very direct and honest, which we appreciated, and helped us negotiate the nuances of doing business in a new state. We were very demanding clients with tons of questions, but David was always responsive and got us swift answers because he was sensitive to the time crunch we were under to find and close on a home. Don’t let his young appearance fool you – he knows what he is doing! Highly recommended.

When I started looking for a home I didn’t know who to contact in the Columbus area to get the ball rolling on the search so I shot off an email to several different realator’s here on Zillow. Dave Fairman with Gold Key Experts was the only one to actually respond back with a real email, out of the approx. 10 relator’s I emailed the only other response I got was a form response. Dave was incredibly personable and helpfult throughout the process. I’m picky and a first time homebuyer so it took a while to find the right place and throughout the process Dave was very helpful, patient, and always quick to respond to any questions. I would highly recommend working with him, it was a great experience and when I sell in several years I plan on going through Gold Key Experts.

My wife and I were both first time home buyers. We had no idea where to begin so we decided to do some research on a good reliable buying agent. After doing several hours of googling, we kept coming across amazing reviews for “The Gold Key Experts”, specifically David Fairman, so we decided to give him a call. That was one of the best calls I have ever made. From day one Dave was a delight to work with. He always returned our calls and emails no matter what time it was. He was personable, knowledgeable, and timely which all made our first time home buying experience wonderful. Dave spent so much time with us and he never gave up on our needs/wants in a house. He actually encouraged us to hang on to them and not settle, and we our so glad he did! We are now two very happy newlyweds in our dream home. If you are still reading this review and have not called Dave yet, let me leave you with this. Dave excels the most at buying/selling contracts. He is a wealth of knowledge and spent hours going though our contract to make sure we were fully protected and received everything we wanted with our new home. This is something that we can not overstate.

I worked directly with David Fairman. David had actually been a previous owner in the development in which I purchased and was very knowledgeable regarding the development as well as surrounding area. All of the paperwork was completed/submitted electronically and was a very efficient process. Closing was also easy and quick – thanks to Charlene and her team!!

I actually worked with David Fairman. He was fantastic for us. We had bigger demands than our budget really allowed and his search gave us the right direction to finding a great house for a good price. I went into house buying completely clueless, David helped me understand how the entire thing would go right off the bat. He explained it in a way that I could understand and relate to. We had a stressful mortgage process and he backed us up when we needed it. I only hope that I can move up and buy another house to work with David again

Dave was resilient and made sure we got what we were looking for. We started with fairly lofty goals and realized we were a bit outside of our element. Instead of showing us mediocre places because we seemed unsure about the high price, Dave handled it as if we were going to buy all of them. We were first-time homebuyers and I can’t imagine having an easier experience. Dave stood up for us when the developer was slowing down the finalization of our home and we appreciated that.

I am new physician, I had never bought a house and was short on time and resources – David was exactly what I needed. He was organized and on top of the properties, locations, and in the negotiations he was so helpful. I feel fortunate that he was recommended to me.

We relocated from Philadelphia so had no knowledge of the Columbus area. Katrina Judd with Gold Key Experts was our realitor and was very knowledgable and showed us around many different areas until we found the perfect house which we love. She was great, personable and knowledgable of all the areas and gave us the pros and cons of each area. It was a pleasure to work with her as she made the process easy especially since we were dealing with being in another state. It was nice make a new friend in an area we know nobody.

Working with Katrina Judd and ERA Real Solutions Realty was the best choice me and my wife could have made. Katrina was on point with every house we looked at. She gave us her personal opinion which is something we desperately needed. And she stuck with us even when we stopped looking for a while so that we could get more finances together. All in all, she is everything I could ever ask for in a realtor!


We have worked with Katrina Judd through two home purchases and one sale. We highly recommend her services. She was attentive, thoughtful and diligent. We couldn’t be happier!


I was buying a home in Columbus while I still lived in Northeast Ohio. We discussed what I wanted in a house. Katrina kept me updated on all houses that matched what I wanted. She was available when I was able to come to view potential houses. When I found the house I wanted to buy Katrina helped with every step of the process. She helped my make a reasonable order, helped my negotiate, referred me to inspectors and helped my find contractors to help make my move smooth. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a house.
