VANDALIA – Real Living Petkus Realtors is celebrating 45 years of outstanding service and award-winning excellence in the real estate industry. In 1971, founder, Michael J. Petkus, Jr., and his wife, Molly, established their real estate company, Mike Petkus Associates in Dayton. They joined forces with the Real Living network in 2001 to become Real Living Petkus Realtors. Today, with 8 brokers and agents, Real Living Petkus Realtors shines as one of Dayton’s leading real estate firms.
Early on, Mike recognized the need to provide his clients with ancillary services to real estate sales, such as property management, appraisal and insurance. He pioneered the idea of a multiple service brokerage, being one of the first brokers to offer these real estate related services all under one roof. With Molly by his side as Director of Sales, their business quickly expanded. Molly has been an active member of the Dayton Area Board of Realtors, serving and chairing numerous committees (including urban revitalization projects), coordinating Home Buyer Fairs, working with various city neighborhood associations, and assisting in teaching home buyer classes through City Wide Development.
In 2001, as the industry evolved, Mike and Molly realized the need to expand their services and technology, and made the decision to team up with Real Living—one of the largest providers of integrated real estate services in the US. Through the most innovative technology and support tools in the industry, Real Living Petkus Realtors offers true, one-stop shopping including mortgage, title, property management, home warranty, insurance and relocation.
“Our goal is to make this important decision of home buying or selling easier, the process smoother, and the results spectacular,” said Molly. “Our company is built on family, innovation and results. Helping families realize their dreams for 45 years has been a dream come true for us, and we look forward to continuing to do so in the coming years.”
