The Approach

Ask Rebecca why she got into real estate and she'll tell you that she never wanted to be in sales..."I always thought you had to be pushy to be successful and I prefer to guide rather than push." Indeed, far from being pushy, Rebecca uses a consultative, educational approach to lay out every option that a client has and therefore help them to discover their best decisions for themselves. She says "...There are a zillion pieces besides 4 beds/2 baths/2 acres. My job is to constantly ask questions and listen with zeal in order to put all the pieces together. I don't believe in fluff, excuses, or wasting time. Like it or not, I'm going to tell you the truth about your situation. It may not be what you want to hear."

The Success
No wonder Rebecca enjoys such success in the real estate arena. She was selected to host a weekly real estate talk show on AM radio. She was in the top 20% nationwide while with Prudential Fox & Roach. Now at Keller Williams, she maintains a sales ratio of 100%. "That means that all of my listings sell. In 2005, only 60% of the homes listed were actually sold, so if you list with me, you're about 40% more likely to sell. It's not magic, it's committment and professionalism." Rebecca studies the current market's statistics in order to ascertain the most likely sales price for any home. With her reputation for accurate pricing, other Realtors are anxious to show her listings; a phenomenon that benefits Sellers by getting them maximum exposure. Buyers benefit too by learning what a "fair" price is for any home they're considering.

Negotiation

As a former paralegal at one of Philadelphia's Rebecca learned the art of negotiation. "I had many bosses, all of them super high-power individuals who wouldn't take no for an answer. My time and skills were in such demand that I had to learn to create win-win situations. These folks are the best negotiators you'd ever want to meet, so I copied their skills and did alot of reading on the subject. I didn't know it at the time, but it was the perfect training ground for my real estate career."

Personal

Rebecca has lived in 5 states, 2 countries, and, as a former opera singer, has traveled throughout the world. She still considers the Main Line her "stomping grounds". "I grew up playing tennis tournaments all over this area and taking lessons at the Upper Main Line YMCA and other clubs. Even as a teenager, I had a passion for architecture. I used to drive these streets admiring the beautiful houses; still one of my favorite pastimes. I know the area very well so it was the logical place in which to root my real estate practice. However, I've lived in Philadelphia for 15 years, so I also have a grip on what's going on in town. This area is one of the most dynamic in the country and I love the daily possibility of learning more about it while striving for excellence in helping people achieve their dreams. What a great job I have! I love it!"

She is always there for you and can deal with difficult situations. She can also deal with the important questions like what color to paint your house. Rebecca is bright and intelligent! She is a real gem. She can sell your house or Rebecca can find you the right house!!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Ardmore, PA.

When Rebecca showed us her presentation, we were duly impressed. She was very logical, thorough, and professional but she also had a smart approach to pricing that we had never seen before. She is wonderfully "tech savvy". She has fantastic tools at her disposal that highlighted our home to its best advantage. We got an offer within 45 days, and she negotiated assertively to get us a higher price. Even when we were satisfied with the agreed-upon price, she went the extra mile to get us a bit more. Whenever we had questions, she responded promptly, she guided as through the home inspection process with expertise, and got us to the settlement table earlier than we expected. If I rack my brain for any one negative thing to say, it would be.................. But all in all it was a tremendous experience for us especially since we had tried to sell before without success. We will definitely use her again and will recommend her to our circle of friends.  More Less

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Cobbs Creek, Philadelphia, PA.

Rebecca helped us buy our first home and kept in touch with us afterward. When we called on her to help us sell it, she was very upfront about the possibility that we might have to bring money to the table in order to sell. We had a different price in mind than she did, and she was open to listening to us and working with us to try and get that price. She made many helpful suggestions about staging and painting, particularly with respect to the placement of furniture that made our home look terrific. The first person that saw our house wanted to buy it at the price we had set! But then, Rebecca got us another offer and was able to use that to drive the price up even further. I'm sure some of that was the market, but without Rebecca's guidance and skill, it would not have gone as smoothly as it did. She helped us get our furniture sold, too. She's definitely a full-service Realtor, smart and also compassionate. We are thrilled with our results.  More Less
