At a young age, Coleen Holt decided to build herself a house. After that initial success, she started looking into building homes to sell, and Coleen, an ICU nurse at the time, realized that she could learn how to buy land to build on. After taking real estate classes and getting her license, she was pleasantly surprised to find early success as a Realtor, and after 6 months she quit her nursing job to pursue a real estate career full-time. Now she owns her brokerage with her business partner, Bonnie Overbeck, called 3B Realty Group, and with 21 years of experience she is completely capable of solving any problem that real estate can throw at her.

As a Realtor with a background in nursing, helping people is a primary motivator for Coleen. She prioritizes excellent service as a pillar of her work, and makes it her aim to provide an enjoyable and comfortable experience for everyone she works with. Along with her team, she goes to great lengths to ensure each of her clients’ needs are met. “We try to go above and beyond to help our clients feel protected in the transaction, and that their best interests are kept at the forefront. We build trust and solve problems,” Coleen says. “If you can solve problems, you can succeed in real estate.” Coleen’s quality of service has made its mark on her career, as she gets 80% of her business through repeat customers and referrals from satisfied clients.

As a veteran of multiple fields within real estate, Coleen has expertise in every facet of the industry, from traditional sales to new construction to short sales to renovations to rentals, she is familiar with all of it. She works with everything, including property management and destressed properties, and as such offers versatility that many other agents simply don’t. “I’ve done so much in the field,” Coleen says. Her and her team aren’t afraid to tackle any side of real estate, and are capable of overcoming any obstacle they might find in a transaction. In 2020 Coleen was awarded the “Circle of Excellence” award from Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors for the 19th year in a row, and the Ohio Presidents Sales Club award for the top 10% of Agents in Ohio.

Coleen has used her skills and determination to build an immensely successful career. She closed 1000’s of transactions over the past 21 years, has managed over 500 rental properties, and built 59 newly constructed homes, serving all of Ohio. She uses phone calls, mailers, and web marketing to establish a wide sphere for her Group, and she’s made a name for herself as a Top Earning Agent.

Coleen is very involved with her local Cincinnati Realtor community, serving on the local Realtor board for Professional Standard and Grievance Advisory Groups. Her brokerage teaches free seminars to educate people about the ins and outs of real estate investing as well. In her free time, she loves to travel, spend time on the water, boating and swimming with her husband and 3 daughters at their lake house. For the future, Coleen hopes to continue growing and developing her business and brokerage while reaching out to as many like minded real estate adventurists as possible around Ohio and the rest of the country. If you’re in need of top tier real estate service in Ohio, don’t hesitate to reach out to Coleen today!
