Selling your Home is one of the biggest financial decisions you will make in a lifetime. Choosing the right agent can mean the difference between a smooth & easy process or a chaotic & stressful disaster.
The 3 most common questions I get asked by home sellers:
- What is the value of my home?
- How fast can you sell my home?
- How will you market my home to get it sold?
The answers to these questions vary from Realtor to Realtor. Which is why making sure you choose a real estate agent that KNOWS the local market your home is in and is not stuck in the old marketing ways of the past is so important. Many agent’s won’t even tell you what they will do for you until they step in your home. That is where I am different. Here are just a few of the things I do when you choose to list your home with me.
The first time a potential buyer sees your home will typically be online. Whether that is through Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia or some other site, it all starts with the MLS. I am committed to MLS Listing Quality. This means I make sure your property is entered into the MLS correctly the FIRST time. Done properly, you will have the possibility of many more buyers competing for your property. This includes proper pricing for the market, complete property information, professional property photos & more.
Setting the Stage
Did you know that it’s a proven fact that staged homes often sell faster & for more money? I offer staging services to all of my clients. I will go through your home with you and give you suggestions to help you prepare your home for sale and make adjustments inside & out that will create a buzz of interest around your home making it irresistible to potential buyers. I also work with professional staging experts that you can hire to stage your home to perfection.
Realtor.com reported almost 90% of buyers start their search online. That means your homes first impression is through pictures. When a buyer sees your home online, you want the photos to be clear & crisp and show off your homes best qualities. I offer photography services to every client with knowledgeable & experienced photographers who know how to showcase your home in the most pleasing way to attract more buyers and get more showings.
Virtual Tours are proven to bring buyers into your home and weed out potential looky-loos. Showings can be stressful and time consuming for your whole family. Using a virtual tour can save you time & money by giving potential buyers a pre-view of your home thereby weeding out people who would normally waste your time & efforts. My full motion virtual video tours create maximum interest to increase buyer curiosity drawing more showings by serious buyers.
Whether buying or selling your home, there are a ton of services you may need during the process. I can recommend House Cleaners, Pest Inspectors, Staging professionals, Well & Septic companies, Home Inspectors, Moving Companies and more. These are companies we know & trust and use all of the time. Ask me for my list of preferred vendors to get the best deals & customer service in town!
Did you know that networking is the fastest way to get your home in front of thousands of potential buyers? I actively network on all of the major social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Youtube & more. Once your property goes on the market, I announce it via these online venues and then keep marketing it to update the status & keep it fresh in the public eye.

Last year mobile searchers exceeded desktop users. In today’s market more than 70% of home buyers will view your home from their mobile phone. I am committed to keeping up with today’s changing technology. When listing with me, your property will be available in a mobile friendly format so that no matter whether a buyer is looking at it on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or on a mobile phone, they will be viewing it in a friendly responsive format that will be pleasing to the eye and easy to use.
Not every agent is willing to put forth the time and effort it takes to put on an open house. That’s where I am different. A successful Open house can attract attention from people searching nearby and create a buzz around your home often creating a potential bidding environment. I am trained on Open House tactics to increase interest and highlight your home’s best features while providing you with feedback on potential buyers.
Each property I list is syndicated to over 40 top real estate websites online including Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Homes.com, HomeFinder.com and on my local website. This means your listing will receive the maximum exposure online & will be visible to thousands of local buyers searching in your market.
