My primary goal when marketing a property for sale is to ensure maximum repeat exposure to the target market to achieve the highest price possible in the shortest amount of time.
In addition to the typical tools used by the average real estate company (like listing on our MLS® system, for sale signage, brochures, etc.), I go a few steps further.
Below are a few of the other services I offer. This will give you a little taste of what you can expect.
- Accurate market analysis. To make sure your home is priced correctly, I provide a detailed comparative market analysis with guidance on the optimum pricing strategy for today’s market.
- Professional photography. Beautiful high-quality photos and a video tour of your property are critical to ensure a successful sale at the highest possible price. I use highly skilled professional photographers to capture the beauty and true essence of your home.
- Floor plans. Buyers love floor plans. All the properties I list are professionally measured and marketed with a floor plan.
- Guidance, not pressure. I will guide you through the selling process and will respond to your questions in a timely manner. I will advise you but never pressure you. All final decisions are YOURS.
To ensure you are receiving the best possible real estate service, I will be with you every step of the way, including:
- During my initial meeting with you, assist you in determining the look, features and location of your new home.
- Provide you with up-to-the-minute detailed property information via email on researched homes that match your buying criteria.
