Frequently asked questions
Are there things we should do to our home to help ensure the maximum price?
Yes. There is a benefit to making sure your home looks its best prior to offering it for sale.
There are also small remodeling jobs that will pay off at resale. We can advise you about specific
improvements that will increase your home's marketability and value.
How often will you advertise our property?
We don't just list homes; We market them. We will make sure your home is marketed to potential buyers
around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will customize a marketing plan to reach the
types of buyers most likely to purchase your home. We know how to maximize the power of the
Internet for my clients, while also using traditional methods including newspaper ads, brochures,
yard signs and direct mail.
Will you be present at all showings?
At open houses we, or a member of our team, will be there. For showings, potential buyers will
bring their own agents to see your home. Most buyers prefer only their own agents be present when evaluating a prospective new home.
What if another agent tells us they can get us more for the house?
Some agents will quote a higher listing price just to get your business, but an overpriced house will
not sell. If you choose to work with us, we will conduct a comparative market analysis prior to
recommending an asking price for your home. We will explain how we arrived at the price, but ultimately
the decision is up to you. We will offer our professional opinion on how the market will
value your home.

Clients for Life
A great many of our customers are repeats. We also have a high rate of referrals. Our goal is to keep you as a client for life!
If you want to compete, be competitive.
We want to generate offers before the market moves on to newer listings.
To get your home sold for the most money in the least time, we have to price it "in the market".
Pricing your property competitively will generate the most activity from agents and buyers.
Pricing your property too high may make it necessary to drop the price below market value to compete with new, well-priced listings.
The right price is important.
Many homes that start high end up selling below market value.
