Robb Harpster


My name is Robb Harpster and I am a real estate broker, and the previous owner of Real Estate Technology Partners, a 60 agent, real estate brokerage located in Dublin Ohio. I was born and raised an hour outside of Columbus, and attended The Ohio State University, obtaining my degree in Real Estate in Urban Analysis in 2002.

Upon graduation I embarked on my real estate career and have never looked back. Assisting my clients in all facets of their real estate needs has been a passion from the onset of my career.  I have many years of experience in just about every area of real estate from first time home buying, to investments, to vacation properties, to custom building - including architectural design and review and advanced financing alternatives.

I welcome the opportunity to learn more about you and your needs, and how I may be of assistance in serving you. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my story.

Tera Barker


I was born and raised in a small suburb of Akron Ohio - the Portage Lakes!  After completing my undergrad, and Masters Program, I entered the corporate world where I spent 20 years honing my management and communication skills.  My calling to Real Estate came in 2017, and I haven't looked back!  I serve my clients with the same dedication and loyalty that I wanted when I bought my homes.  Beyond Real Estate, I find joy in spending time with my two boys and quiet time at the lake - quite frankly, any lake! 

Our team, the Harpster & Barker Group powered by Century 21 Excellence Realty specializes in working with both buyers and sellers! Sellers deserve the best marketing in the industry - not just a sign in the yard! And buyers deserve an agent that steps outside of the box to find the perfect home - not just a canned search! Buying your dream home, and selling your home full of memories is an emotional ride - but we've got you covered at every turn!
