Our clients’ interests—not corporate managers—drive our decisions, so we can offer some of the most client-friendly programs in the area.
In December of 2012 broker John Lasher had a decision to make. After 15 years with a large international brokerage his franchise agreement was coming to an end and the corporate managers were pressing for a renewal of the glorified “logo fee”.
At that same time his son Matt had just re-entered the real estate industry and was looking to do something a little different from the old-school/fancy car/fancy suit way of doing things. And so with zero hesitation the two decided to buck the traditional corporate model in favor of a new independent brokerage — High Point Real Estate Group.
Since making this transition, High Point has seen a tremendous amount of growth—more than quadrupling in size in our first five years—with even greater growth on the horizon. With the cut in corporate overhead and the freedom to run the business with a local focus we have been able utilize some of the most cutting-edge technology to help our clients achieve their real estate goals.
Much to the loss of High Point and the Northeast Ohio real estate community, John passed away in 2016. As both an outspoken critic of the industry’s shortcomings and booster of its service to the public he was thrilled to have been able to see the company find stable footing as a client-focused brokerage.
High Point Real Estate Group is a member of the NAR, OAR, CRIS, ACAR, SCAR, CBOR, MBOR.
