"Real estate is not confusing – it’s understandable. Real estate is not scary – it should be fun. It just depends on the agent you choose.”

If you’re thinking about selling your home, it needs to be priced to sell for the most money in the shortest time.  I can give you a no cost, no obligation market analysis of your home - and my Pricing Strategy Advisor certification will assure it’s professional and accurate.

You’ll get proactive marketing from me.  Many real estate companies just list your home on the MLS and wait for it to sell. That’s not the effort you deserve.  I will:

  • Make sure your home looks it’s best to a potential buyer
  • Tell you honestly what’s important and what’s not regarding your home
  • Post your home on #1 rated shorewest.com, social media and all major real estate websites
  • Put up a large, attention-getting sign to attract passers-by
  • Share the new listing with 700 other Shorewest agents, most of whom have 5-8 active buyers
  • Hold open houses, if you desire
  • Hand-deliver flyers to neighbors, who often know someone who wants to move into the area
  • Mail postcards to 300 homes surrounding yours to announce your home for sale
  • Mail flyers to targeted neighborhoods since 90% of buyers move within 7-9 miles and spend 30-50% more than they did on their current home
  • Help you get the best financing, if needed
  • Help with whatever you need – cleanup, repairs, estate sale, service provider referrals

If you want to buy a home, with no cost or obligation, I will pinpoint homes that meet your specific wants and needs – all homes, not just those being sold by Shorewest – and you will know about them within two hours of them being listed.  And I’ll get you in to see them immediately, or when it’s convenient for you.  We often have access to homes not even on the market yet.  I will let you know every step we will be taking, and why, and what comes next.  I will save you money by finding you the best financing available, and negotiating the best price and terms when you finally find that perfect home.
