Are there things we should do to our home to help ensure the maximum price?
Yes. There is a benefit to making sure your home looks its best prior to offering it for sale.
There are also small remodeling jobs that will pay off at resale. I can advise you about specific
improvements that will increase your home's marketability and value.

How often will you advertise our property?
I don't just list homes; I market them. I will make sure your home is marketed to potential buyers
around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I will customize a marketing plan to reach the
types of buyers most likely to purchase your home. I know how to maximize the power of the
Internet for my clients, while also using other traditional methods.

Will you be present at all showings?
At open houses I, or a member of my team, will be there. For showings, potential buyers will
bring their own agents to see your home. Most buyers prefer only their own agents be present when
evaluating a prospective new home. For some listings it makes more sense for me to be there. If this is a concern I would be more than happy to discuss it with you.

What if another agent tells us they can get us more for the house?
Some agents will quote a higher listing price just to get your business, but an overpriced house will
not sell. If you choose to work with me, I will conduct a comparative market analysis prior to
recommending an asking price for your home. I will explain how I arrived at the price, but ultimately
the decision is up to you. I will offer my professional opinion on how the market will
value your home.

Do we have any responsibilities during the marketing of our home?
Your primary job during the sale of your home is to keep it neat and clean for showings and open
houses. A large part of a home's appeal involves staging, which is everything from furniture
placement to home fragrance. I will advise you on how to stage your home well, giving you easy
tips and quick fixes to maximize your home's appeal.

What happens once we get an offer?
I will help you consider each offer and negotiate the best deal for you. Once you've
accepted an offer, I will guide you through the entire closing process and ensure everything
proceeds smoothly.
