THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME? If you are like most people, you are excited or nervous, or perhaps a bit of both, at the prospect of selling your home! It is, after all, a significant milestone in your life. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and showing you all the wonderful tools, services and knowledge I possess to help you achieve your goals. Selling real estate is a complex business. Mistakes can be very expensive! Chances are you do not spend each day, every day, year in and year out, immersed in the real estate process, studying and working. This is what I do! Real estate agents come in all varieties with very different approaches and very different levels of experience, dedication, and quality of service. It is my pledge to you to bring you the highest level of professionalism, care, knowledge and integrity. My focus is you! I truly understand that when you are in the process of buying or selling real estate, one of the largest investments you will make, both an analytical and an intuitive understanding of the market is absolutely imperative. I have perfected my skills and knowledge in both of these areas! My understanding of the intricate details of home and community research, comparative market analysis, well-practiced negotiation, contract submission and time constraints, inspections and resolutions, title, survey and appraisal issues, all combine to give you better guidance and ultimately a stronger return on your investment.

THE PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME


WE START OUT BY LISTENING • Every home tells a story… what is your home’s story? How long have you been here? How did you find your home? What memories have you made here? • What do you feel are the most appealing features of your home and property? • What unique features does this property have that differentiate it from similar properties? What upgrades have you made? • What do you regard as the most attractive features of your neighborhood/location? What aspects of your current home do you most hope to find in your next home? • Do you have any special terms or conditions for the sale of your property? • Are you aware of any problems or concerns regarding your property or neighborhood?

Our time spent together will be all about ... YOU, your goals, what you want to accomplish, your needs, your timeframe. YOU and the SALE OF YOUR HOME! Help me to understand how I can best help you!

• What is your motivation and time frame for selling? • Do you have specific expectations as to the selling price of your property?

We Listen… We Understand… We Care…

• Are there specific activities you want to see included in the marketing of your home? • What were the most positive/negative aspects of your previous homeselling experiences? • What is the best way to communicate with you? What phone numbers and email addresses should I use?

THE PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME


Before we even list your home, I have already STARTED working hard to sell your home!

START OUT STRONG • Research ensures accurate assessment of the benefits and features of your home. This is crucial in the development of proper pricing and marketing strategies. • Analyzing the inventory of comparable active properties and recently sold homes, along with micro and macro economic trends, allows me to develop a strong, effective plan to list and sell your home. • Researching tax and title information on your home, as well as special assessment, loan and utility information, allows buyers to feel comfortable with the total cost of homeownership, and helps ensure we have no surprises at the eleventh hour. • Gathering and presenting buyer financing plans helps buyers easily move from dreaming of owning your home to actually placing an offer on your home. • Recommending improvements for listing your home can help you net the highest price. • Detailing the listing and showing process, as well as the selling process, helps you prepare for showings, negotiations, inspections, title, survey, appraisal, and closing, with no surprises. • Understanding your concerns allows me to address what is most important to you.

THE PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME


SELLING A HOME IS SELLING A LIFESTYLE It’s helping people as they decide where their children will go to school, where they will shop and eat, how they will spend their free time, how long they will spend in their cars… it is listening, learning, and promoting community amenities that will be exciting to them!

THE PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME

Our marketing starts out by promoting lifestyles that can be enjoyed in and around your home, along with your home’s wonderful amenities!

WHAT DOES AN ALLIANCE AGENT DO? Helps You Understand The Market... My ALLIANCE agent was very knowledgeable about the area, market values, schools and overall home quality. That put us at ease when buying. Helps You Prepare Your Home For Sale... My ALLIANCE agent started working with us a year before we sold our house. She came over and consulted with us on improvements and priorities and then checked back in over the following months to see what help we needed. She recommended contractors for the work that we could not do ourselves and gave us plenty of advice. She worked with us the weeks before we sold to get the house ready and then listed and sold our home for over list price in 36 hours. Helps You Navigate A Stressful Environment... My ALLIANCE agent was very professional and provided the expertise required to complete the closing without issues... easy to work with, keeps you well informed of the selling process and knows how to help clients navigate through this stressful environment. Helps You Find The Perfect Home... My ALLIANCE agents are true professionals and know the real estate market conditions. They are patient, especially if you are a fussy buyer and take better than a year to find a home that meets all your needs and wants. They are knowledgeable about the city and county locales and express the strengths and potential flaws of a property, yet allow you time and space to make an informed decision regarding your individual circumstances.

THE PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME

YOUR FOREVER AGENT.


TRUST EXPERIENCE WHAT ELSE DOES AN ALLIANCE AGENT DO? Helps You Understand Your Contract Offer... My ALLIANCE agent kept us informed throughout the entire process. She provided our family with helpful recommendations as we prepared for the showing of the house. She cheerfully and calmly navigated us through the details of the contract offer and provided us with much needed direction through the closing process. Helps You Maximize The Return On Your Investment... My ALLIANCE agent had excellent strategies and was clear on what would help us the most to maximize our return as far as staging options. We were living out of state and she was an amazing communicator - always kept us posted if something with the home needed attention, and let us know she was checking on it! Helps You Navigate Inspections... My ALLIANCE agent helped ensure that the inspection was prompt, pushed for and got the seller to agree to the major repairs, and then ensured that the contractors performed the work by closing. Helps Defend Your Interests... My ALLIANCE agent is not afraid to support and defend your interests. At the same time she can be very candid and honest with you if she believes you are not correct in your assumptions. Helps You Save Money... My ALLIANCE agent was there for us to calm our nerves with practical guidance. We ended up double closing very smoothly! Our ALLIANCE agent was well equipped to negotiate for us during the contract and inspection process and saved us tens of thousands of dollars!
