ANTIQUE STORES ARE KEY TO SMALL-TOWN REVIVAL SAYS MIDWEST REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER, SMALL NATION
Travel & Tourism writer Bill Flood visited downtown Bellefontaine to write about its resurgence and the importance of antique and specialty retail stores to benefit small towns.
Five generations of the Abraham Family have made Bellefontaine home for their families and businesses. Scott Abraham, owner of Cardinal Appraisals, is continuing that tradition as the fifth generation. A 34-year member of the Logan County Chamber, we are honored to recognize Cardinal Appraisals as our first Business of the Month in 2022.
A graduate of Bellefontaine High School, Scott returned to his hometown after obtaining his Business Degree in Accountancy from Miami University. He joined his father, Richard Abraham, in January 1988 in their appraisal business and real estate company, RHA Group Realty, Inc. Shortly after, the Abrahams added RHA Homes, a home construction company, and in 1995 acquired a Century 21 franchise. Scott's father Richard retired at the end of 2012, at which time they closed the real estate company. Since 2013, Scott has primarily focused on appraisal work. He is a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser focusing most of his business on conventional loan appraisals with area lenders. He also does estate and private party appraisals as requested.
