Nick Motz

Cincinnati native, graduate of St. Xavier High School and University of Cincinnati’s School of Design Industrial Design program.  With a strong German, family-business work ethic, and a sincere interest in real estate, Nick began purchasing, remodeling and managing his own residential and commercial properties in the early 90’s.

Nick has since broadened his real estate umbrella – now a 20-year real estate sales practitioner – licensed in both Ohio and Kentucky.  Today, Motz offers cross-spectrum services for his clients – from sales/leasing to remodel/construction to property development.


Shane Kelly

Cincinnati “lifer” and Construction Team Leader at Motz, Shane is here to serve our client’s needs. Every sale demands repairs/prep before going to market, and the same (or more) after purchase – Shane makes that happen, seamlessly. When not attending to our active sales clients, you’ll find Shane: revitalizing high-end loft apartments and retail spaces in the Garden District of the East End of Cincinnati. Eli’s BBQ, The HiMark, EMMA’s Wine Bar (and more) are all reshaping the area…



The Office
Home of Motz Real Estate, the Adenine Building is a unique, co-working office. Originally built by Barney Kroger in 1935 as a prototype Kroger Store, and refurbished in 2007, this building has been the location of many types of businesses – from butcher shop to laundry to home of Iron Horseman bikers to cabinet shop – before today’s reincarnation. Today, several companies share this space, collaboratively – Motz Real Estate, eXp Realty Columbia Tusculum Branch Office, Wilker Design & Marketing.

Most recently, the building has been up-fitted with a complete solar production facility that effectively takes the space “off the grid.” Come down and visit us!
