Gahanna Area Realty Association
The mission of this organization was and still is to share information and ideas among our members and community concerning the local Real Estate market.

Vice President - Amy Nitzschke, Realtor® CRT Realtors

I am honored to be returning to the Gahanna Area Realty Association Board, this time as Vice President for 2017. Without a doubt, this is one of the finest realty associations in Central Ohio. We're excited to offer a wonderful environment for Realtors and Affiliate members to come together for networking, charitable causes and fun personal and business relationships!

After spending over 15 years in corporate Sales and Project Management, I was fortunate to transition into full-time real estate.. and haven't looked back. I'm beyond blessed to spend days with grateful, excited clients as well as to work alongside some of the best Realtors and Affiliate friends in the industry.

A Gahanna graduate and proud University of Dayton Flyer, I currently live in Westerville with my three little blessings, Drew (11), Ava (9) and Carter (6). They are my ONE thing and keep me busy, humble and happier than I ever thought possible.

For those Realtors and Affiliates unfamiliar with this group, or for those who haven't attended in some time, I invite you to check us out! We meet every Thursday morning at the Rusty Bucket on Polaris Parkway, 8:45a. See you there!
