The trick to get the most money for your home is to get multiple offers and have them bid the price up. This is called an auction effect.
You can create an auction by offering the most value on the market and driving competition between buyers, rather than pricing high so that buyer are negotiating against you.
To be successful, it is critical to price the home properly. We look at real buyers who have purchased similar properties to yours which leads us to our price recommendation.

Katie is extremely knowledgeable in the local market and does very thorough research for the home being sold. She also listens to her clients and works to bring them to see homes they have given details for. She especially goes above and beyond on getting buyers in the new home expeditiously.
Katie always has the most recent information on local real estate, the trends, cost per square foot, what is selling etc. She is great at staging the homes she has listed. She is also friendly and professional in dealing with clients, even the "just lookers"!
We have used Katie on two different occasions. She was so good the first time around that we asked her to help us with our second home. If we ever wanted to move there is no question we would call upon her again.
We worked with Katie in 2015-2016 when we were buying our new home. We were new to the area, but she made us feel comfortable, like we were old friends. She is hard working, professional and very accessible most all the time. I know we must have called her over and over and over just to pick her brain or to find some comfort in our journey. She was also very patient in working with us when we hit a few "bumps in the road." I would recommend anyone in our area to use her when buying or selling a home! She will get the job done and done right and she'll help you feel confident while doing so. We will definitely use her again, the next time we buy a home!
Can you help prepare my home for sale?
Yes we can coordinate vendors for you.
Many of our clients are not located in the local area, and we help them by coordinating different repairmen for routine maintenance.
Can I buy and sell a home at the same time?
Yes, you can handle this through a simultaneous close, which means you close both transactions at the same time. We have extensive experience in this type of transaction.
It is our pleasure to coordinate your experience to make it as smooth as possible.
I don’t want to host an open house, is that okay?
Absolutely. If you prefer not to have an open house, that is totally fine.
That said, we have had success hosting launch events, so if you can stomach an open house, we do recommend it.
Is your commission negotiable?
We offer 3 commission levels, with different services attached to each one. You can pick the level of service / commission based on your needs.
Keep in mind, we work for free until your property sells, so there is no cost until your home is sold!
