About Us

Our Mission is to assist people in improving and enriching their lives through the ownership of a home that supports their life, goals and dreams

John Lubinsky,  Licensed Realtor

John Lubinsky graduated with Highest Honors from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in 1999 and went on to have a successful career as a Senior Photographer and Director of Photography, as well as an instructor at Columbus State. In 2001, John bought his first home just outside of Bexley and spent 6 years renovating and remodeling it. It is here that he learned the impact of home ownership on people’s lives and how critical the “right” home is to one’s lifestyle and personal goals. John took his proceeds from his first home and put it toward an even larger project home in Westerville, where he grew up. In 2009 John became a licensed Realtor® and started helping others enjoy the benefits of home ownership. John’s passion, positive energy, and eye for details have proven beneficial to his clients.

Jim Lubinsky,  Licensed Assitant and Founder of The Lubinsky Team

Jim completed his undergraduate studies in marketing at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio, and received his MBA in management from Cleveland State University.  His eighteen years of banking experience provides him with a well-rounded financial background and experience in organizational planning and marketing skills.  Jim’s introduction to real estate came in 1988 when he joined a friend in residential land development to market new, upscale subdivision lots and architectural services to home builders and individuals.  After obtaining a real estate license in 1989, Jim began to focus his marketing and management skills on real estate and obtained the distinction of Columbus Board of Realtor’s $1 million club in 1991, $5 million club in 1994, $10 million club in 1998 and $25 million club in 1999.

Thatsany Say, Licensed Assistant

Thatsany Say spent 15 years in Mortgage Banking where she learned a lot about Deeds, Promissory Notes, Escrow Accounts, etc.  In 2014, Thatsany decided she wanted to put her experience toward something that was much more meaningful to her and to the community.  Since she is naturally a compassionate person, loves home decorating and design, has mortgage knowledge, and knows the meaning of hard work, Real Estate seemed a perfect fit.  Thatsany was licensed in May of 2014 and immediately joined the Lubinsky Team.  Thatsany lives in Westerville with her husband and daughter.

Michele Bell, Licensed Assistant

Michele graduated from Ohio University in 2002 with a degree in elementary education.  She moved to Colorado shortly thereafter, and started teaching elementary school.  In 2006, while on summer break, she got her real estate license.  Working with people to find their perfect home, and building lifelong relationships, is her true passion.  She sold real estate for several years in the Denver area before relocating to Upper Arlington with her husband and two boys.  Michele became a licensed real estate agent in Ohio in 2016 and joined the Lubinsky Team.  She is excited to bring her passion and knowledge to her home state of Ohio.
