Meet Sara Riesen and Fran Andersons, owners of Select Realty Group, located at 23 S. Washington St. in Tiffin. Sara and Fran started their own business in 2012 and bring a combined 42 years of experience in real estate to the table.
Both owners are Tiffin natives. “I just like the small town community,” Fran said. “It’s a very warm and welcoming town. I like being downtown where we’re growing and improving.”
“It’s such a supportive community!” Sara said. “I love walking downtown and seeing everyone. We can walk across the bridge and get a glass of wine at Ralph’s, cheesecake next door, the best cup of coffee on the corner and now we have a nice view of the river.”
“We do things a little differently and do our own thing,” Fran said of their approach to realty. In fact, when they opened, they were the only realty office in town not to require “floor time,” instead, letting their agents come and go as needed.
They are also rolled out their own app earlier this month. “We like experimenting with new technology and social media,” Sara said.
Select Realty is composed of 12 agents, including Sara and Fran. “We have fun and we have a great group that works very hard and is very caring,” Sara said of the staff. “They are community conscious so they are out there.”
Select belongs to the Firelands Association of REALTORS. Both Fran and Sara serve on the Firelands board of directors, with Sara serving as president. Sara also recently won the Heidelberg School of Business – HSB Women’s Established Entrepreneur Award!
