We Want to Be Your Realtor for Life

Eaton is truly a full-service realtor, aiding home buyers, sellers, and renters, as well as managing properties and assisting with property investments. Yet Eaton Realty is also a family business—not only in the literal sense, or even among the employees, but in how the company’s leadership and staff regard the surrounding community. For the principles by which Eaton conducts business are also those that make for strong families: trust, loyalty, honesty and a willingness to serve the interest of others.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF EATON REALTY

While working toward a degree in Business and Finance at Kent State University in 1970, Craig Eaton began his real estate career as a branch manager and collections officer servicing home loans at Midland Buckeye Federal Savings and Loan in Alliance, Ohio. Then in 1973, he bought his first investment home for $22,500. One year later Craig founded the Eaton Construction Company, building single and multi-family homes in a master-planned community.
The experience Craig has gained—and now shared with his son Shawn, son-in-law Daniel and the rest of the Eaton Realty family—is constantly being put to use on behalf of clients. As Craig explains, “I am well positioned to guide people – I’ve lived through three major market cycles – from the super high interest rates of the 80's, to the construction crunch, to the housing crunch.”
