What is Radon?

What is radon? Simply, radon is a very common issue in Ohio home buying and selling. Radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas found in many homes, but it is often unchecked. According to the EPA, radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. I highly recommend that all my clients have a radon inspection during the home buying process in addition to a whole house and termite inspection. The EPA recommends having a radon mitigation system installed if the home radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher. Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced. Radon reduction systems are effective, not costly, and can reduce radon levels in the home by up to 99%. Radon comes from the natural decay of uranium found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air into the home through cracks in the foundation and water supply. The home traps radon where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem; new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. It is estimated 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. have high radon levels. Test today! Low cost Radon test kits are available to Ohio residents: www.ohio.radon.com

What Past Ohio Home Buyers and Miami Valley Home Sellers Said

What Past Ohio Home Buyers and Miami Valley Home Sellers Said

“Christina did a great job for us. We are very picky whom we
hire as many realtors add little value and do not want to put in the extra
effort to go above and beyond. Right after we fired one realtor, we went to an
open house and found Christina. We were very impressed, as she went the extra
mile for the seller and added real value for them. She was very warm and
engaging. We then asked her to represent us. She did an awesome job, even
though we were fairly demanding and helped us into the house of our dreams.
I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.” Jeremy Schans, Springboro Ohio Home Buyer

“Christina smoothed out what could have been a very bumpy ride purchasing our
new homestead. We knew so little about the geographic area. She is a true
professional, has an excellent network of colleagues and outside providers
(inspectors, bankers, etc.) and always has a positive but realistic outlook.
Christina receives my highest recommendation for real estate agents.” Gale
Kleven, Miami Valley Ohio Region Home Buyer

“Went house hunting during the winter with little faith that we
could find one in the short time frame to move. No matter what time of day or
evening, Christina was always available to make appointments work. We closed on
time and well within our budget. She is well connected with the community which
provided us with valuable resources (carpet cleaning, minor repairs, etc) to
help our new house become a home.” Miki Crane, Beavercreek Ohio Home Buyer

“Christina is an excellent real estate agent. She is friendly,
punctual and extremely knowledgeable about the Miami Valley real estate market.
Christina is also very attentive to her clients and consistently returns emails
and phone calls in a prompt manner. I highly recommend Christina whether you
are buying or selling a home.” Conrad Dillon, Oakwood Ohio Home Buyer

“Christina, Thank-you so much for the time you spent with us!
We really appreciate it. We absolutely love our new home!” Jason &
Jennifer Long and boys, Xenia Ohio Home Buyers

“Christina is one of the best agents I have ever met. She excels at every
facet of this profession. Any buyer or seller who chooses Christina as their
Realtor will be very pleased with their decision.” Clyde Corle, President
of Home Experts Realty

“Christina, Thanks…I just want to say so far I am very pleased with what
you are doing for us. It is a big difference to the service we received
previously.” Stacy Kibler, Centerville Ohio Home Seller

“Hi Mrs. Edwards!!! We will definitely tell everyone about you, you are
GREAT! Thanks!” Connie Miller, Centerville Ohio Home Buyer

“Hi Christina, Thanks again for meeting with us today. We really
appreciate all the great information that you provided to us and are looking
forward to working with you.” Matthew & Erin Smith, Xenia Ohio Home
Buyers

“I want to thank you for all of your hard work and commitment. It has been
a pleasure working with you and you are the best agent I have ever had.”
Danielle Owens, Xenia Ohio Home Seller
