Ted Dahmus and his company, Petermann Properties, are no strangers to five-star reviews. And it has everything to do with Ted's hard work, marketing savvy, and responsiveness. He's one of the young stars in the city's real estate scene. / Image courtesy of Petermann Properties

Meet One Of The Young Stars In Cincinnati’s Real Estate Scene

Ted Dahmus’ Petermann Properties got its first online review in March 2015. The reviewer gave it five stars. As did the next one, and the next one, and the next one. A total of 42 reviews later, spread out over Facebook and rental site VRBO, Petermann Properties has only garnered one that wasn’t five stars.

It was a four-star review, from a tenant who described Dahmus as reliable and responsive and had no negative comments. (So there ya go.)

Those positive reviews are due largely to Dahmus’ commitment to hard work. His marketing savvy doesn’t hurt either. But most impactful has been his willingness to put himself in the shoes of his renters to ensure they’re satisfied.

You might have seen this coming from Dahmus had you been there when he first began renting property in 2012 -- to his friends, in the house where he also lived.

Now the operation is much larger. Petermann Properties is busy rehabbing and renting luxury units in neighborhoods like Oakley, Hyde Park, Mount Lookout, and Over-the-Rhine. It incorporates proven, professional techniques to retain a home’s character while giving it the feel of a new build. In total, its portfolio comprises 15 properties, including a vacation getaway at Norris Lake in Tennessee as well as a stunning building at 1537 Republic in OTR.

The VRBO reviews of the Norris Lake property are particularly glowing. Dawn B. complimented the spacious layout as well as the kitchen, saying it’s “very well appointed with high-quality appliances and plenty of everything to feed your crew.”

Keith A. vacationed at Norris Lake with a crew of two families and three young adults. “We had plenty of room,” he said. “The house is in fantastic shape, very clean, and wonderfully decorated.”

“Our accommodations were excellent,” noted Anita V. “The view of the lake from the docks and kitchen is just beautiful, especially the sunrise.”

“This pet-friendly home is the perfect Norris Lake destination!” Writes the ebullient Donna B. “Looking forward to a return visit!”

Emily highlighted the fun activities the house offers: “The kayaks, ping pong tables, and hot tub ensured there was always something to do! I highly recommend this house and look forward to visiting it again myself!”

We’ll close it off with the verbose stylings of Pam S., whose comments I’ve mercifully trimmed into the following bite-sized nuggets: The inside of the home is “lovely,” the kitchen is “amazing,” the view “takes your breath away,” and the location is “hard to beat.”

“Would def return!” Pam concludes.

She echoes the sentiments of many.
