After interviewing several highly recommended agents, I chose Cheryl and she was the single biggest factor in selling my home.
We had to overcome a market with virtually no turnover, depressed values from a recent distressed sale, cold feet buyers under contract, and last minute home repair issues. Through it all Cheryl did an excellent job.
Here are the main reasons I picked Cheryl and what I consider to be her biggest attributes:
Trustworthiness - From our first interaction until the end I always felt that Cheryl was honest, genuine, and shot me straight.
Loyalty - She fought for me every step of the way and carried out our plan with energy. She was on my side and she was as emotionally invested in closing the deal as I was.
Local Knowledge - Living in my community for 40+ years she was able to go toe to toe with any agent or appraiser on market value and historical analysis discussions to justify our price point with credibility and competency.
Responsiveness/Communication - Any day of the week and at all hours she was accessible. Given my work schedule and difficulty communicating during business hours this was a huge benefit. She kept me informed of all discussions and developments with all parties involved. She always followed up with Realtors who showed my home and got immediate feedback on what they thought of my property. This enabled me to constantly improve the staging of my property during listing.
Contingency Management - Our sale had a handful of unforeseen challenges and throughout each Cheryl was adaptive, positive, and provided valuable insight from her years of experience.
Most importantly - She Delivered Results. We had a tight timeline that we needed to meet for selling our home and she helped make it happen.
