As experienced home owners, we were hesitant to use a realtor for the sale of our home in Cary. We had experience with selling our previous homes ourselves and felt that we were equipped to do so again. HOWEVER...after much work and research on our part, we slowly came to realize that we were, indeed, ILL-EQUIPPED to sell our home ourselves in a market that was so extremely depressed. We had bought our home at the height of the bubble and over the course of 5 years, made well over $50,000 worth of improvements. The potential equity loss at stake was tremendous. With that in mind, we began exploring our options and interviewing realtors. Before signing with Kim Pappalardo, we met with her several times and had multiple correspondences via phone and email. With each interaction, Kim's knowledge, experience and expertise were abundantly clear and far surpassed her competition. (I know, because I interviewed them too.) This past summer, we were at risk of losing our up-front investments in upgrades and improvements PLUS $40,000 in equity, totaling a $90,000 loss because of current market comparisons. Kim's expertise, professional connections, and diligence resulted in a quick sale at FULL asking price. Let me make that clear...a QUICK sale at FULL ASKING PRICE. As previous skeptics and do-it-ourself-ers, we highly recommend The Pappalardo Group to friends, family, and anyone who expects knowledgeable, professional, and PERSONAL service when selling or buying a home.
