We love working with home sellers. Our primary focus is to ensure that our real estate clients look back on the transaction with a feeling of confidence that they sold their home quickly and painlessly for a great price.
As your seller’s agency, we start our process by ensuring that the home is put on the market in the best possible condition. This includes a pre-listing inspection by us to determine if anything needs immediate attention (such as faulty plumbing, moldy baseboards or a leaky roof), along with recommended contractors to handle anything that comes up that needs attention. Additionally, we will market the listing with beautiful photos, a virtual tour video, a custom listing page and mailings to local buyers, getting your home as many eyeballs as possible, as quickly as possible.
Below you’ll find a list of resources we’ve created for home sellers, outlining the home selling experience from start to finish.
