About Bolte Real Estate and Their Lasting Local Real Estate Heritage.

Change was in the air that morning in 1936. As Ann Bolte took her seat, she scanned the room to look at all of the other applicants. She couldn’t help but notice they were all men. That observation didn’t worry her, though. It only inspired her more. Ann not only passed that real estate exam, she had one of the highest scores of the group.

A Lasting Heritage
That’s how it all began. Almost eight decades and four generations later, the legacy of Bolte Real Estate is stronger than ever. Ann’s original vision of excellent real estate service has been continued over the years by her son, Gene, her brother, John Drusbacky and granddaughter Cindy. For most of these years it remained a small family business, known for their higher standard of personalized guidance and a deep commitment to their customers’ needs.

Today, Bolte Real Estate is owned and operated by Ann’s great grandchildren, Phillip Bolte and Renee Bolte-Stine. When they took ownership from Cindy in 2014 they began to enhance the existing company culture while building on a team approach to the business. Recruiting and handpicking top agents throughout the Northcoast area, they have built a state-of-the-art real estate company while maintaining the family heritage and providing a distinctive personal touch.

The Next Evolution 
“Our company grew to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve, but we never lost sight of Ann’s original vision,” Phillip says. “Our agents are the best of the best, measured not solely by lofty sales figures, but by character, integrity and passion for their clients’ success.” By staying independent and going against the cookie-cutter conventions of larger brokerages and franchises, the team at Bolte Real Estate is able to uphold a higher level of service to people buying and selling homes throughout North Central Ohio.
