When BUYING AND SELLING Real Estate in Van Wert or Paulding County … you’d make no better choice than STRALEY REALTY & AUCTIONEERS.

Our humble beginnings started in 1976 from a small real estate shop in Paulding. Encouraged by our steady success, four years later we branched out to Van Wert.

Today, our size and reach is much larger and more advanced with all of the latest high-speed technologies – but, we assure you – we will never forget our family-owned roots and local business attitude.

Our day-to-day philosophy is the same today as it was when our Father opened Straley Realty & Auctioneers many years ago…

“Our clients come first. Always!”

Welcome! Have a look around.

    Very happy with my experience with Straley’s and especially with Jane Germann. She is the sweetest person and made selling our house so easy. Very thankful for her and for Straley’s. 10/10 would recommend.

    My wife Samantha and I worked with Warren to sell our previous home and buy our new home. After having done so we could not recommend him enough. When you work with Warren you not only get an extremely competent realtor, but you also get all his knowledge on home repairs. He can also put you in contact with quality contractors if you need them. Throughout the process he was able to provide tips on repairs to make to sell our house, as well as what to look for in a new house. He took calls on nights and weekends and was never unreachable. He went above and beyond what we expected for a realtor and kept us in the loop through every part of the process. We had a long buying process due to some contingencies and things outside of our control, but he did his best to alleviate any worries or fears and ultimately he closed the deal. We couldn’t be in our forever home without Warren

    Chet is a great realtor! He is so patient and stayed with us through all the homes we looked at until we found the perfect one. He then was able to sell our house in less than 2 weeks and continues to check in to see how our new home is treating us. We couldn’t ask for a better realtor.
