Preparing To Sell Your Home
Let’s be honest. Selling a home can be stressful. The process involves uncertainty, allowing strangers in to your house, a complicated legal transaction and money. I can’t take away all of the stress and won’t promise to. But I can keep you ahead of the process so that you know what to expect, keep track of the many professionals involved in any sale and coordinate their efforts, keep you up to date on the local market, negotiate on your behalf and be a sounding board
Even if you are simply seeking an opinion about value and are not ready to sell just yet, I am happy to meet with you (free of charge!). I can provide an overview of recent sales and how your home might fit in the current market and give you a personal overview of how I work. I am also happy to connect you with past clients if you would like to interview them! My marketing expertise will ensure that you get the best value for your home in the shortest amount of time.
Here is a broad overview of my services:
- I will be your go-to researcher. I will provide you with market data on your home as well as comparable homes, keeping you updated throughout the process.

And I will let you walk away. If you are not happy with my service, just advise me in writing and I will terminate our agreement with no further obligation. Naturally, if the home you’re selling goes under contract, I will help you follow through to a successful closing per the terms of your contract.
