Nicole helped us sell our home and purchase our new one. She went above and beyond to accommodate our schedules. She explained everything throughout the process making us feel at ease at a time that can be stressful. We would highly recommend Nicole and her team.

- Jim

- Stephanie D.

Thank you Nicole! You have been so kind to me. When I didn't understand things or got scared you knew exactly what to say. It really meant a lot to me. You have helped Jack and I get everything together so that this could happen. I am not sure how you did all of this and at the same time, moved your own family. I thank the Lord, He placed you in our path. 

- Jean W.

Moving to a new city and committing to house hunt right away was exciting and daunting. Fortunately, our relocation company paired us with Nicole Yoder-Barnhart at HER Realtors. Unbeknownst to us, we landed in THE BEST hands Ohio has to offer relocation clients undertaking the home buying process.

Our connection with Nicole was immediate and genuine. As a good listener and astute observer, Nicole showed us homes that could potentially work for each of us and cautioned us not to feel pressured to settle. Nicole was responsive, knowledgeable and encouraging from the onset. Given the specificity of our wishlist and timeline Nicole helped us find the perfect home - a new build that we were able to customize to our satisfaction. To top it off-(testimony to her expansive network)- Nicole extended the invitation for a casting call to one of our favorite shows-House Hunters! We are honored and humbled to share one of the largest and most emotional decisions as homeownership and our HGTV debut with Nicole. It has all been quite the adventure and we could not have had a better captain of the home searching ship than NYB!

Consistently throughout the process, Nicole demonstrated professionalism, shared thoughtful insights and was an absolute delight to work with. So blessed to have been partnered with Nicole to successfully find our perfect home. We have come to regard her as a friend and our forever realtor!

- Summa

Nicole is extremely knowledgable about all of the areas around Columbus. She knew it was the right time for us to sell and get the top dollar we could for our home. She then helped us get into our new dream house just a few miles away!

- Jennifer

Nicole is my go-to for real estate needs. She and her team have sold our old house and my condo, found our builder for our current home, and found my parents (who live 3 hours away) a condo here in Powell. When you need someone to take care of you for real estate... she’s the one! Happy to call you my friend Nicole!

- Molly

We had an excellent experience with Nicole and her team with both selling our home and building our dream home. She knew the perfect time to sell our home and we sold ok 3 days for over asking!


Penny Smith of the Nicole Yoder-Barnhart group is the most attentive realtor I know. She brings personal touch to each interaction and really takes the time to know and educate her clients. She was relentless in helping us find the right house, in the right neighborhood, in the right price range. We are first time buyers and she made the process seamless and fun. She is extremely knowledgeable of the industry and is informed on the market. We LOVE our house, but I look forward to the day when I can work with her again to sell my house and upgrade. Penny is amazing!


Darin was an invaluable partner in our home buying experience. He educated us through every step of the process and was consistently available for questions and showings. With the current state of the market for buyers, this kind of support meant so much. Our home buying process would not have been the same without him. Darin, thank you so much for helping us find our dream home.


Kathleen Hanna was the first agent to contact me from an area search for an agent to list a property in Marsyville. I live in Cincinnati and was searching somewhat blindly, but really hit the jackpot with Kathleen! She was precise and consistent with her follow-up and always very professional. The property we needed to sell was a flipper that we sold as-is, despite the need for considerable foundation work. Kathleen guided my family through the process and patiently answered all of our questions. When referencing or describing the property, she was always diplomatic, courteous, and professional. The closing was exactly one month from the listing date! Kathleen's team has the most efficient system for organizing the listing papers that I've seen from any team: a folder portfolio with a notepad of the papers, complete with carbons for ease in keeping materials together and in sequence. I'm very impressed! Kathleen was an excellent communicator throughout the whole process. We couldn't have been more pleased!


Nicole, I wanted to say thanks and let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you and your team. It was the smoothest deal I have had and I will be hard pressed to do better.

- Chuck

I want to thank you personally for all your efforts that resulted in our being able to close. Your attention to detail coupled with your honest, straightforward and professional approach helped bring this transaction to closing. Cooperation is the foundation of SUCCESS in our industry.

- Rosetta

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for helping in getting the property in Clifton Chase sold so that they could move into their new dream home. I know they are getting more and more excited and anxious to move in and they are relieved to have their existing home sold. 

- Milka

You guys are the greatest and we can't thank you enough for all you've done for us. Thanks again, we could not have sold our house without you!

- Jay and Tracy

Congratulations on your success and national recognition as someone who is outstanding in the real estate industry. You do a great job with your clients. Congrats Again!

- Mary

Thank you so much for the effort you made in helping us buy and sell our house. We appreciate everything from making us feel like your one and only client (which we knew you had more) to treating our every question like it was not a bother. You are both tremendously good at what you do and we won't hestitate to refer you to anyone we know.

- Kenny and Jenny

I just wanted to say thanks for the great co-op. I am looking forward to working with you again, soon! 

- JP

Nicole, thank you for everything. We love our house! 

- Kevin and Gina

Nicole, I can't thank you enough for all of your professional advice over the phone the other night. You are terrific! Thank you for answering all of my questions so candidly. You gave me the confidence and information I needed to communicate more effectively with my realtor. Thank you.

- Pam

We would like you to continue to be our agent for future considerations. Out of all the agents we have been in contact with, we thank you were and are the most caring and helpful. We want to thank you for that. 

- Robert and Maria

Our property had been on the market for nearly 2 years before we signed with Nicole. She was our 4th realtor. After parting ways with the others due to (what we believe to have been) "unethical reasons," Nicole was like a breath of fresh air with her professional ethics. The real estate world would be a better place if all realtors had Nicole's personality and integrity. She is a very hard worker and she represented HER extremely well. Words could NEVER express appreciation for Nicole. She is a real gem! We highly recommend her to everyone! And we will definitely call her in the future!

- Lisa

We had an excellent experience with Nicole and her team with both selling our home and building our dream home. She knew the perfect time to sell our home and we sold in 3 days for over asking!


Amanda did a fantastic job helping my wife and I purchase our first home. She was patient, knowledgeable, honest, persistent, and caring. She helped to make the process as easy as possible for us, and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase.


Nicole and her team sold our home and the homes of other family members. We were very satisfied with the level of professionalism, knowledge and expertise we experienced.

- Jane

Our opinion of Nicole and her team hasn't changed in 4 years since Julie sold us our current home. Julie Barnhart found what we wanted at a fabulous price and worked with us the whole way. She felt like family! We are happy here and plan to stay the rest of our lives. Thanks, Yoder-Barnhart team!

- Ed and Gina

Nicole is very knowledgeable about all real estate needs. She helped my sell my home and buy a new one. She showed me several houses until I found the perfect one. She is a pleasure to work with and to be around. She's always professional, while wearing a smile.


We were extremely pleased with Kathleen Hanna as the realtor who sold our house. She is totally approachable which is great as she inspires trust with buyers. She is very knowledgeable, warm and friendly and above all, totally sincere in her dealings with both sellers and buyers. You feel you can put your trust in her without reservation and she works very hard to make the selling/buying experience easy.

- Brenda

Darin did an excellent job in assisting me with the purchase of my property and also with the selling of my property a few years later. Complete professionalism at its finest.

- Greg

My experience with Darin was beyond excellent. He is extremely thorough and informative about the entire home buying process. Much of my stress was relieved by his knowledge and experience. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a genuine, hard-working realtor.

- James

Nicole and her team were impressive with their local knowledge, and more importantly their abilities to market the property successfully. Please do not hesitate to utilize her team, could have not completed this sale/processes without her assistance/support!


We just sold our 4 - bedroom home in Dublin in under 30 days working with Kathleen Hanna as agent & The Nicole Yoder-Barnhart group. We were impressed with their knowledge and grateful for their advice. We were able to sell our home for top-dollar in January 2017.
We particularly enjoyed the fact that they were excited about our home and understood that selling it was emotional for us. The excellent photography highlighted the wonderful features of our home. The process of working with them was efficient and very businesslike. Kathleen is extremely personable and professional. We recommend this team and Kathleen without reservation.

- Fred

When we relocated to the Columbus Area, we selected HER Realty, Nicole Yoder-Barnhart's Agent Kathleen Hanna to help us find and purchase a home. She is knowledgeable, perceptive and especially patient -- we looked at 70 homes! So, it was a no brainer when we chose her to sell it in 2016. Our home sold in 3 days. I highly recommend selecting HER Realty, Team Nicole Yoder-Barnhart and specifically Agent Kathleen Hanna. The professionalism exhibited in selling our home was second to none. The photography was excellent. You can count on Kathleen all facets of the process! We strongly recommend Nicole Yoder-Barnhart and her Team!

- Todd

Kathleen was great!! Helped us every step of the way both selling and buying. We love our new house, great location in Hilliard 400k. Kathleen still follows up periodically with us to check our satisfaction.


We looked at over 50 houses before we finally purchased. Darin was patient, knowledgeable and helpful. He also helped to sell our home at a fair price. Highly recommend!


Understand your need, very cooperative. Help us to find good home for my family. Trusty people, local knowledge, negotiation skill, responsiveness and process expertise. Always ready to help.


Our first meeting with Nicole, she said she was going to make us homeless. She did. We did an open house the first week listed and had 2 offers that day!! Then, game on to find a new house. Nicole and her team helped us learn about buying a foreclosure and the in and outs of the experience. We did find a house and have been in it 9 years. Nicole and her team helped our friends sell and buy a new home and most recently helped my parents sell their home. Highly recommended.


They were great and very knowledgable. Kathleen was our person. She was always available and still is if we need anything! We used her to sell our home and buy a new one!


Nicole sold our house in record time and saved us soooo much on our new build! She is so well-connected and knowledgeable. Everyone I recommend her to is thrilled with her work. Finally, a realtor who gets things done and goes above and beyond!


Excellent service and professionalism by Nicole. Nicole was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. Just the type of person you need when looking for your first home or which every one you are on. She was flexible with timings and availability when I requested to visit a property on the weekend. She gave us her honest view, which helped us in making informative decision. Would definitely recommend.

- Chris

Nicole and her team sold our home in less than 1 week AND helped us to buy our dream home! They are all very professional, knowledgable, and very quick to respond to any question that you have. Renee and Sharon helped make the closing process a breeze!! I would highly recommend Nicole and her team to anyone buying and/or selling a home!!!!


I have worked with both Nicole and Penny Smith. They are both professional and are very knowledgeable about the industry. Penny Smith has been amazing with us in our search for the perfect house.


We were referred to Nicole to help us locate a home to purchase after moving from PA to the central Ohio area. From my initial contact with her, she was responsive and very knowledgeable about the area. I always felt she was giving us her full attention even though I know we were not her only clients. I would definitely recommend.


Nicole and her team are great. They do a great job of getting your house information out on the market. When we sold our first house the first realtor barely had any buyers come through. We switched to Nicole and her team had multiple buyers in and had the house sold in no time. Same experience with the sell of our investment property. She will be our first call for any future realty needs.


Purchased a Condo in 2014 with them. The process went smoothly and the agent was responsive and assisted us in getting the information we needed to make our decision.


The Nicole- Yoder Barnhart Team helped us buy are first house. They helped us make sure that we bought a house that we were going to be able to afford. They then sold our first house when the housing market was at its low. We decided to buy land and build a home and The Nicole Yoder Barnhart team was there to help negotiate for our land and close on our new build. if and when we sell our current home we will have their team helps us do it.We recommend them to everyone especially on people who are buying their first home. Their team is patient, hardworking and trustworthy.

- Tabby

I was given a tour of multiple homes before settling on my final purchase in Canal Winchester. I was very happy with the entire process. I appreciate her hard work and dedication to my buying needs!

- Sarah

It has been almost 3 years since we bought our home through this agency but we still feel connected and part of their real estate family. We liked Julie Barnhart the second she greeted us at the first showing. She had the energy and enthusiasm that seemed to be lacking in previous agents from other agencies. Anyway, if we ever sell or know of a friend who wants to sell or buy, Julie would be the first person we contact.

As far as feeling connected is concerned, the Yoder-Barnhart team keeps us informed with email newsletters and the annual invitation to a movie event. This year we will be attending and bringing our 9 year-old daughter whom we will be adopting in the spring. Again, it is always a comfort knowing we have the support and friendship of the Yoder-Barnhart team!

- Ed and Gina

I would highly recommend Nicole and her team. We used them as both buyer and sellers agents several years ago and have recommended to others several times since. They have also been helpful over the years when I have had a general real estate question for myself and family members. I will not hesitate to use them again if the need arises.

- John

The Yoder-Barnhart Team have helped my family sell and purchase homes more than once. Their Motto should be we're not happy if you aren't happy.
People don't stay in homes for ever like in the past. So repeat customers are what makes a business successful. This team has always gone out of the way to help us make the best decisions when it comes to selling or purchasing a home.


The Yoder-Barnhart team is amazing! Extremely responsive and professional. They truly have been a source of knowledge during this process and have really cared about my needs in a property. They have worked tirelessly for me and my family and I'm so thankful for them.


I never take the time to fill out Review's but for Nicole and her team I wanted to do this. I've used Nicole for more than one Purchase for me and my family. I have referred several people to her and they all have nothing but great things to say. Not only is Nicole the very best Realtor in Ohio she's also the nicest and most genuine person I've ever met. I know Nicole has my best interest at heart and will continue to use her for all my real-estate needs.


I would highly recommend Nicole and her team! We were relocating from Florida to Ohio and relied greatly on her team to help us with our search. When we found a home we were interested in one of her team members were always available to go preview the home for us, take the time to facetime us so we could also view the home remotely and answer our multiple questions on the homes. Upon going into contract they were extremely helpful with us being so far away from working with our lender who was also in Ohio, explaining all phases of the contract process(home inspection, appraisal, warranties available, closing process etc). They helped make a very stressful move much less stressful and I highly recommend them!

- Sharon

The Yoder-Barnhart Team is excellent to work with from start to finish. They immediate provide you with "comparables" and help you determine a price that will sell your home but also factor in your goals. I had a great experience as my home sold two days after being listed. I would highly recommend the Yoder-Barnhart Team as they are very professional, responsive and also very caring about helping you whether it be the sale of your home or finding the home that is perfect for you.

- Richard

We worked with Nicole Yoder-Barnhart and her team on a new build. She was great to work with, extremely knowledgeable made for a stress free transition into our new home!!

- Jayson

We had a wonderful experience working with Nicole and her team. She sold our house quickly and got a great price. If we ever move again, we will most definitely work with Nicole!

- Becky

Nicole is very professional and one of the top agents in the area. She coordinated each showing and made the entire experience painless. I would have no problem using her services again.

- Howard

Nicole and her team is outstanding. Their knowledge is second to none. She had our house sold in 8 days of being on the market a few years back. Since then we have referred Nicole and her team to many of our friends and clients. Everyone always thanks us for getting them in touch with her. She is and always will be our realtor of choice. If you are selling a home, buying a home or relocating, I highly recommend using Nicole Yoder-Barnhart for any of your real estate needs.

- Randy

The Yoder-Barnhart Team is excellent to work with, they have the experience and the expertise to assist with any and all real estate needs. I recommend them to all of my clients/acquaintances when they have a real estate need. They do a great job helping you with the valuation and marketing of your home, so that you get the most from the sale of your home!! They helped a mutual client sell a rental home.

- Ricki

While I normally dont write reviews until I have purchased a product, I felt the need to do so in this case. Nicole and her team is truly top notch. Within a very short time of reaching out to them, I was contacted back after work hours. I didnt expect a call until the next day. She was able to immediately set me up on a search and review situation to make sure i am fully ready to go. We have been on several showings at the drop of a hat. In our market currently homes are flying off the shelf and its a sellers market for sure. Having Nicole has truly given me a leg up on other buyers and I am confident i will be in contract soon. If you are going to choose a real estate agent, choose Nicole!!

- John

We originally planned to list our home with another realtor since we knew him from our neighborhood, however, due to requirements by our relocation company, we met with an additional two realtors, and one of those was Nicole. We were so impressed by her, that we immediately decided that she was the agent for us. And, did she ever deliver!! We had about 10 showings the very first weekend, received three offers, two which were full-price, and were in contract after the first weekend. She listed our home for a higher amount than the original realtor, and assured us that it would sell the first weekend. She was absolutely right! We would highly recommend Nicole for anyone interested in selling their home!


Nicole is top notch. Not many realtors provide the level of service I get from Nicole and HER. She's sells 200+ houses a year. I've referred friends and family and she's helped everyone accomplish their goals between buying and selling. Anytime I need to see a new MLS listing, she's on it getting my wife and I in the house promptly. I'm picky and hard to please, but Nicole continues to put up with me. I would highly recommend Nicole to any buyer, from a novice to any old pro. Put her to the test, she'll get things done for you too!

- Michael

During this whole process they really work with you. I like the fact you were educated about certain homes if they had previous issues. The team was very helpful and prompt with showings. If I were to do it all over again I would definitely choose Nicole Yoder-Barnhart team

- Keshia

Nicole and Sharon sold our condo during the WORST market conditions. Sharon spent so much time with us and was so patient in helping us to find the right house. We had to back out of one at the last minute due to mold and find something else quickly, and she made it work, got us our earnest money back, and got us in to the right house for us in record time! Lori Love is also exceptional, the whole team was fantastic for us and if we ever move again we will absolutely call Sharon/Nicole first.


I worked with Nicole and Kathleen in 2007 when I moved from Scottsdale, Arizona. They were very professional and a delight to work with. They both had many years of experience and were very knowledgeable about the home buying process.
Although my situation changed and I had to move further north to Alliance, OH due to family concerns, I look forward to working with them in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking about buying or selling a home.

- Cindy

When we started looking for a home it was in Janurary 2011. We didn't know the first thing about it but a friend said check out Nicole Barnhart Team with Her. So we called. We talked with Lori and she helpped get the ball rolling. She took our applacation and put us in contact with Brenee. Anytime weneeded anything on the phone or at the office everyone was very nice and helpful. We told them what we wanted in our dream home. Where we wanted to live . After setting up appointment with Lori and Brenee we found out our financing and then went looking on thier website. Then we would go out and look at homes with Brenee. If we didn't find one Brenee would cheer us up by saying you will know it when you see it and it will feel like home. On March 9th we found Our dream home. It was eveything we wanted and more. We were so excitied . On April 22,2011 we signed the papers on OUR DREAM HOME !!! We just spent our First Holiday Season at our home. It was fantastic. Our families and friends all love it and are so happy for us !! I would recomend Nicole and Her Team to anyone and everyone I know.
