About


We, Rick and Donna Hamblen, are a full-time full-service husband and wife team with Platinum Real Estate Professionals. We are certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialists. Together with Mark & Denise Zervos we help clients list and purchase fine homes and luxury estates. Whether you are looking to buy or sell -- or both -- we can help! Over 90% of our business comes from repeat customers or customer and business partner referrals. We take an honest consultative approach to the business and we focus on YOU and YOUR goals, your lifestyle, your needs by listening intently and tailoring your home search or your home selling process to your specific needs and situation.

We started our Real Estate career with Howard Hanna Smythe Cramer, moved to Century 21, then on to Keller Williams Realty, and finally Platinum Real Estate Professionals. Besides providing our clients with outstanding service, we spend a large part of our time analyzing the local marketplace, researching current and future real estate trends, and educating ourselves on an ongoing basis to ensure we stay tops in our field.

Prior to Real Estate, we worked for ABB (Asea Brown Boveri) formerly known here in Cleveland as Bailey Controls. In our former roles, we traveled the world extensively, managed multi-million dollar customer training and global marketing activities for the service industry. We also set up and participated in technical trade shows and other promotional events across the USA. Throughout our careers at ABB, we both negotiated multi-million dollar technical training and service contracts with decision makers at manufacturing plants around the world.

While Cleveland Ohio is now our home, Donna is originally from Rochester, New York. Rick was born in Ankara Turkey; was raised in Paris, Tennessee; joined the US Navy; and settled in San Francisco, California before relocating to Cleveland.
Together, we have six (6) children and three (3) grand children.

We'd love an opportunity to help you buy or sell a home. You won't be disappointed and you owe it to yourself to find out how we compare to the rest.
