About Our Team
Serving: Wells, Adams, Grant, Blackford, Jay, Madison, Delaware, Randolph, Henry & Wayne Counties since 2011
When Paul Starr opened Starr Real Estate, May 11th, 2011, he was one of the top brokers in our region and had grown into being one of the most successful REO/Foreclosure Property agents in our area.
With the assistance of Bryce Conyers as his 'right hand man', they were able to grow the REO side of our business tremendously & decided to move to their own office & that is when Starr Real Estate was born🎉
Not long after opening (within 2 months) they were blessed to have Heather Clemmons join them. Heather brought with her a lot of knowledge as not only a listing agent and buyer agent, but also as an investor/property manager. Heather has been KILLING it for her clients and for our business. She is & will always be known as our 'SuperStarr'
Paul got his real estate license in 1998 & his hard work has paid off ten-fold as he's been able to grow this business to what it is today.
As SRE began to grow even further beyond the REO realm, we began searching for agents to join us. We've seen a few come & go, as is the nature of real estate. We were blessed beyond measure when Robert Ping joined us in 2016. His degree in Computer Information Systems has helped us all to navigate the more technology driven market successfully. He is in the office most days, not only assisting Bryce with REO tasks, but also handling buyers & sellers like a pro!
In 2018, Paul passed the reigns to the REO side of our business to Bryce; where he has been selected as this regions 'Fannie Mae HomePath Pro'. In addition to the many private clients Bryce serves as a listing and buyer agent, he is also chosen as the listing agent & property manager for multiple different REO & Foreclosed properties in 10 different counties.
Also in 2018, Bob Zirkle brought his 10 years of real estate experience to SRE as a part-time agent. He's taken pride in helping hard working friends and neighbors achieve success in buying & selling homes. Bob is currently employed outside the RE realm, but hopes to retire sometime soon, where he will spend more time as an in-house agent.
Paul is now semi-retired and no longer working with buyers or sellers directly but is fully committed to continuing to make SRE a great place for agents, staff & clients.
This year, 2022, We're Moving On Up! * WELCOME TO THE TEAM*
