Real Estate Philosophy:
We believe that a good agent should be knowledgeable and skilled to make the process of selling your home or finding your new home as efficient, interesting and stress free as possible. We also believe that the information the agent provides should be current, accurate and relative you the specific community and your situation to help you make an informed decision.
When buying a home it is essential to have an agent who knows the local market and will listen to you to understand your needs, concerns and goals for housing and lifestyle. A good agent should also take time to explain the process and give you a good idea of what to expect.
When selling a home it is important to have an experienced agent who does more than just list your home, put a lock box on the door and wait for someone to bring an offer. After all, you're hiring them to market your house and sell it in the shortest possible time for the best possible price and they need the appropriate skills and experience to do that job well..
Good exposure of your home is essential to achieving these goals. This includes creating the MLS listing and exposure on major websites such as Trulia, Realtor.com, Zillow.com and LongRealty.com. Scheduling and advertising open houses to get maximum traffic through the home will help. We will also provide good staging tips and take good pictures that set your property aside from the competition and, most importantly, we will communicate with you on a frequent and regular basis.
