You can rely on my experience to help you find the perfect property at the Portage Lakes or Greater Akron area

Tom McCombs, Realtor

Century 21 HomeStar





 In over forty years of investing in real estate I have owned everything from large apartment buildings to single family homes, to land, to commercial and mixed use buildings. Ever watchful of new opportunities, I have undertaken many fun projects including converting an apartment complex into single family condos, to developing land, and owning and managing one of the first corporate suites residence complexes in the area. My hands on experience in remodeling, property maintenance, and new construction will serve you in evaluating properties to fit your needs.

I have  designed my website with an emphasis on the Portage Lakes Area because I think it is a tremendous area asset with year round recreational opportunities. Living lakefront on the main chain of lakes gives me an intimate view of all of the happenings in the lakefront real estate market. Plus my buyers have the advantage of viewing waterfront listings from the water.

I am also very familiar with most areas of Summit County as well as the greater Canton area in Stark County. My Real Estate Services will help you find the perfect property.

I can be reached at 330-644-2413 or by email at Tom@TomMcCombs.com 



My real estate and Portage Lakes Living blogsite has entries on various happenings in the real estate market along with valuable information on making an informed choice when purchasing property. Lakefront buyers should check out my series on "How to Buy Waterfront Property."

personal information

Born in New Jersey, I grew up in Silver Lake, Ohio, and have lived in Bath, and Jackson Township in Stark County. For the past 32 years I have enjoyed living lakefront on the Portage Lakes. My wife and I have two cats, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We love to snow ski, travel, read, swim, fish, and of course take our pontoon boat out on the lakes.
