I run the HUD contract for our brokerage, in conjunction with another Vice President within the organization. That contract encompasses 35 counties in Ohio. I do reside in Delaware, OH.
In addition I have rehabbed homes, both as a contractor and assisting a large number of investors and homeowners who are looking for that "fixer-upper". I handle all types of clients, however I do have a lot of experience with distressed properties.
As Toby said, there are many great Realtors in the Delaware market.
In addition, if you need assistance selling a home in the Canton area, we do have a terrific team in the area who could assist you.
As far as helping you to know what area is "good and bad"... any licensed agent is precluded from passing such judgement. What may be a "good" area for one person, would be a "bad" area for someone else. Instead, a Realtor's role would be to take any lawful directions that you provide, and assist you to meet your personal goals.
Feel free to call me if I can be of assistance, and the best of luck in your search,
