  • The biggest obstacles sellers have to obtaining top dollar for their homes are: Other homes in their price range look better. People drive up and leave without stopping to go inside. Potential buyers are embarrassed when entering the home. The home has a flaw that is scaring potential buyers from offering
  • How do you overcome such obstacles? Very simply, address the issues before putting your home on the market. Professional inspections will calm the jitters in #4. Making sure your home is scrubbed and staged will prevent #3. Taking a critical look at the exterior and painting &/or landscaping can alleviate #2. Convert your home from a 'home you live in' into a model home exciting to explore. A home exciting to explore is a home exciting to buy.

  • Home is where the heart is. Because your feelings and home are connected. Not only is it most likely the biggest personal investment you'll ever make; the process of obtaining it or leaving it is highly emotional. What I offer both my buyers and sellers to navigate these rough waters is guidance. Knowledge is power and if you know what lies ahead, you will be much stronger and able to handle what is to come. Together, we develop a customized plan (and backup) and negotiate 'till it's right. For sellers: We convert your family home filled with memories into a showplace exciting to the senses and ready for eager buyers to covet. For buyers: We discuss what is important to you, prioritize and find as much as possible of your fantasy home within your reality budget.
