In the past several years, she has become an expert in short sales, which requires a high level of negotiation and organizational skills. Even as short sales are becoming less common as the market recovers, the experience she gained during the downturn in this complex market has proven to be extremely useful even now as it recovers.
As a Listing Agent, it is important to accurately value property, prepare the property for showings and communicate effectively with the owner of the property, as well as other Agents who bring prospective Buyers.
"Staging" a property for sale means showing its best side, whether it is vacant or occupied (by the home owner or a tenant). Annie excels in this area, making cost-effective suggestions to Sellers before listing the property. She includes this advice, as well as many "props" she regularly utilizes to enhance the ambiance, in her brokerage fee- there is no extra charge.
With a strong background in commercial real estate, she is well-versed in assessing return value in investment properties (rental property). While primary residences and second homes are purchased with different goals, all real estate is, in a sense an investment. With that in mind, she works with Buyers to find the best value.
For owners of property who are not local, finding a good property manager is crucial. Over the years, Annie has identified reputable contractors and repairmen who charge fair prices and do good work, and she helps coordinate with tenants to make needed repairs or maintenance work. When looking for a tenant, she conducts thorough reference checks to minimize the risks of problems with rent collection and keeping the unit in good condition.
