Excellence Since 1993
The Case Bowen Company was founded in 1993 when Bob Bowen and Jim Case put their two companies together.  Bob has devoted his career to the practice of real estate since graduating from The Ohio State University with a major in Real Estate in 1974.  Bob is a past-President of the Central Ohio Chapter of the Community Association Institute (CAI) and Jim was also the chapter President in 2001 and served as the Treasurer through 2003. Jim is currently one of nine committee members throughout the state of Ohio for the CAI Ohio Legislative Action Committee. This committee was instrumental in the drafting of House Bill 135, which became effective in July of 2004. This legislation revised section 5311 of the Ohio Revised Code that governs condominiums in the State of Ohio.
In 1989 Bob founded Bowen & Company, Inc., and as President of his own company, Bob flourished and became one of the top leasing and brokerage agents in Columbus.  Bob has been personally involved in leasing over two million square feet of both office and retail space.  Mr. Bowen is a licensed Real Estate Broker, a member of the Columbus Board of Realtors, and a graduate of the Realtors Institute. Bob and Jim share equally in the day-to-day operations of The Case Bowen Company. 
Jim has a wide array of expertise in commercial real estate management, leasing, finance, rehab and development.  A graduate of St. Olaf College, in Northfield, Minnesota he has been involved in the real estate profession for over 25 years.  Jim represents the third generation of Cases to be involved in the commercial real estate business in Columbus.  His grandfather founded W. Lyman Case & Company in 1919 which was eventually taken over by his two sons Ward (Butch) Case, Jim’s father, and Bill Case. The company was eventually sold in the early1980’s.  At W. Lyman Case, he was involved in property management, leasing and originating as well as underwriting commercial loans. Mr. Case, along with Mr. Bowen, is responsible for all day–to–day operations of The Case Bowen Company.  His main involvement is overseeing the day to day operations with Bob and concentrating on the property management division.
