Buying or selling a home is also one of the largest purchases many people ever make. Keeping up with the changing regulatory landscape and the shifting sands of the real estate market is no small task. That’s why you need an expert on your side. The real estate market is all about connections. When you work with us, our network is yours. We’ve spent decades building relationships with brokers, clients, referrals, friends, and even family. We match you with your dream buyer so you can continue your story—wherever it takes you.

and complete extensive research so your home is priced right.


PRESENTATION— I’ll prepare your home to highlight its best attributes, inside and out. First impressions are crucial, so I help coordinate photography, landscaping, repairs, and house cleaning. Many buyers start shopping online, so I aim to make the best possible impression and spark as much interest as possible. Of course, you have final say on what I can and can’t do to prepare your property for sale, but it’s important to understand that my recommendations are drawn from my combined experiences in what works. PROMOTE— I will use a multi-faceted marketing campaign to attract the most potential buyers. Increasing the number of buyers who see your home in the first 10 days will result in higher and better offers to purchase. My marketing strategy is based on research, experience and innovation. I am statistically ahead of the curve in this department, and am always refining my methods to be more effective.

Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.

Using comparable properties to price your home can be complicated. We show you the ins and outs of comparables, going beyond bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage to include factors like condition, location, and proximity to amenities. Beyond knowing the market and comparable properties, pricing homes requires gut instinct. We give you the edge on pricing by sharing the lessons we’ve learned over decades of selling real estate—so you can price your home confidently.
