Congratulations Homesellers!


Selling your home can be a very exciting event! Whether you’re selling to buy your next home, or you’re moving out of the area, or if home ownership simply no longer suits your needs, the goal is to sell your home quickly, easily, and for the most the market will bear. It takes much more than sticking a ‘for sale ‘ sign in your front yard, or entering information about your home in the multiple listing service. Selling your home can be a complex transaction. A Realtor who can help you prepare your home for sale, market your home, negotiate the sale for you, and manage the entire process from beginning to the day you hand over the keys is vital to your satisfaction and success. It’s so important to work with a Realtor who can do all this and much much more in a highly professional and ethical manner. Rest assured that I am by your side from beginning to end and beyond, offering you the following:


*Expert evaluation of your home in regards to location, condition, amenities, value, local market conditions, broader economic climate, and so much more 


*Guidance and management of any work to be done to prepare your home for market: repairs, sprucing up, staging, and more


*Referrals, scheduling, and management of key inspections prior to putting your home for sale


*Detailed, thorough discussion of the importance of completing seller disclosures in a straightforward, comprehensive way 


*Developing and executing an effective marketing strategy to ensure maximum ‘buzz’ and market exposure


*Continual updating to keep you abreast of anything and everything that could affect the interest, appeal, and ultimately, the salability of your home


*Guidance and management of the offer process to ensure that the offer you accept is the best one for you considering many factors: pricing, terms, ability of prospective buyers to perform, effectiveness of prospective buyers’ Realtor, and so much more 


*Expert ‘win-win’ negotiation, ensuring that you’re getting the most you can for your home


*Management of everyone and everything involved in the entire escrow process, making sure you’re aware of all events, timelines and important dates from the moment you accept an offer to well after you hand over the keys to the new owners


*A level-headed, intelligent, and calm approach (a sense of humor now and then never hurts either!) to handling any and all issues that may arise during the entire home selling process -- an approach that has been fine-tuned over a real estate career that spans 25 years!


And of course, a passion for what I do that leads to a never-ending commitment to ensuring your success and complete satisfaction with my services and results!


Simply contact me at your earliest convenience -- just click on my email address above -- so that I can begin working on your behalf. We'll make a great team, and I look forward to helping you move on!
