Passion is What Sets Us Apart

I’m passionate about what I do. And it shows in the level of perfection I bring to the table in marketing your home. When you are ready to sell your home, I want to be your broker of choice. These five ingredients of a successful real estate transaction are what sets me and my team apart from the rest:

1.  Setting the right price. I will never compete for your listing by offering a “high sales number.

Why it matters to you: When agents compete by offering sales numbers, the main objective is to get a signed listing agreement. This competition often results in overpricing and later price reductions. The delay in pricing correctly from the start means the home gets fewer showings, and can sit until the seller price reduces. Ultimately, the delay means a lower price and less money for the seller.

A better approach is to hire your agent based on their knowledge, credibility, and likability. Then, have a conversation about how to price your home.

2.  Having an agent understand your needs and goals. I take the time to listen.

Why it matters to you: An agent needs to understand your “why” and have an understanding of the big picture to truly guide you. Why are you moving, what are your goals, aspirations, and “must-haves?

3. Experienced, strategic representation. I have 20 years of experience in selling every kind of home in every kind of real estate market good, bad, and ugly.

Why it matters to you: When I represent you, you'll benefit from my wealth of real estate experience and being able to always make deals come together. I’ve represented clients through every kind of scenario, from suburban downsizers and first-time and move-up buyers to taking care of the needs of my client’s children or their parents, including managing their parent’s estates, and transition moves, to short sales, job loss, divorce, short sales, and foreclosures.

4. An eye for beauty and design. This ability is something you can’t teach. It’s innate. An artistic eye allows me to create compelling marketing for your home, from staging to photography.

Why it matters to you: The marketing of your home should draw buyers in and allow them to feel what it would be like to live there. It's’ so much more than a vanilla laundry list of the finishes. The photography, videos, and written words combine with the pricing and description to create a compelling first impression, tell a story, and establish urgency and demand for the home.

5. Exceptional teamwork. It takes years to put together a great team. I've created a team of top-notch professionals who come together to service your real estate needs. Whether it is administration, staging, photography, marketing or finance, legal representation, inspectors, estate planners, or financial planning side, you can expect only the best service.

Why it matters to you: To have a successful real estate experience requires the coordination of a lot of moving parts and a group of professionals who work together to get to the closing table.
