Our goal is to sell your house as quickly as possible for the maximum amount of money and to ensure the transaction goes smoothly from start to finish. Selling a home is a big deal. Most people don’t sell more than two homes in their lifetime, so it’s not something they develop expertise in. There are ever-changing laws, ethical practices and practical considerations and we are here to help you every step of the way. It is our job to streamline the process for you, ensuring everything is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
For more information on each step of the home selling process, refer to one of the sections below or contact us today.

HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED OR WANT TO MAKE?
The first answer is always, “as much as possible”. If you end up making a $2,000 profit is that enough? Are you willing and able to put $10,000 into improvements in order to sell it for $20,000 more? Everyone has different needs and wants for selling. Those personal reasons determine how much you are willing to do concerning the sale of your property. An added value when you sign a listing agreement with us is that we will review improvement and staging options, current market, best time to sell, and your net estimate.
We go beyond just putting your house on the basic websites. We update them on a regular basis in order to “refresh” their status. We also place your house on automatic weekly schedules so they are continually in front of social media groups. Your home will get the exposure it deserves. Our marketing systems maximize your property’s exposure to buyers. Neighborhood tracking tools and automated buyer calling systems allow us to reach active buyers who want to know about your listing. When we sign the listing agreement we will provide you with a detailed list of our unique marketing strategies.
OFFER AND CLOSING – WE WILL ENSURE:
- All potential buyers will be pre-qualified, so valuable time isn’t wasted.
- Each offer will be presented and discussed with you.
- We will negotiate the details of your transaction with the other agent.
