MARSHALL — At Marshall Area Homes, the real estate agents are working under a new name, but they are anything but inexperienced.

Broker and business owner DuWayne Johnson, along his crew of real estate agents, are all a part of the new business called Marshall Area Homes. However, they have plenty of experience under their belt.

“I have been working in real estate for 32 years. I have been a broker for 18 years,” Johnson said. He also was a part of two different franchise companies during his business career.

“There is always a need for helping buyers and sellers with their home needs,” Johnson said.

“From first-time home buyers to experienced home buyers, we are here for them, whatever their selling or purchasing needs may be,” broker associate Charles B. Holland said.

With constant demand comes constant competition, though.

“There are 34 licensed Realtors within four agencies in Marshall, so I would say it is a fairly competitive field,” Johnson said.

He also said serving a wide variety of clients is their specialty, and it is what sets it apart from the competition.

“The most unique thing about our business is us — we have great customer service and we really push the importance and value of that,” Holland said.

“Whether sellers just need to make a change or buyers need a new home, we are here to assist them,” Johnson said.

“We are both fortunate and happy to be in this town and to be helping serve the people of Marshall as well as the surrounding communities,” Holland said.
