THE DOWLING DIFFERENCE! Please call me for our “Monthly Market Report” on Vancouver, North Shore and Richmond. 2012 prices decreased 2.5% to 25%. The number of sales decreased 20-25% from record highs... yet there were still successful sales campaigns depending on your “Realtor’s Marketing Plan.” My team successfully sold 99% of our clients’ homes, and at 98% of asking price or higher, and many of our sales were multiple offers, over the asking price, placing us in the top 1.5% of all realtors in Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board in 2012. Fin out about our high end “Forensic Marketing System” perfected over 9 years and hundreds of sales. We “Target Market” our listings to “Identified Buyer Profiles” and we “Position” our properties to stand out from the rest of the competition. We keep our listing inventory low, and then sell your home as fast as possible and for the highest prices, through and extremely focussed “Shock and Awe”-type marketing campaign. Call us today!
