Meet The Salem Team


Brian Salem

Now, Brian leads a team of full-time agents whose success is based upon Brian’s philosophy of creating an amazing client experience and building life-long relationships. The Salem Team is ranked in the top half of 1% of licensed real estate agents nationally and has been consistently awarded The Pinnacle of Performance by The Ohio Association of Realtors.
