Each home and each seller is unique. Together, we will take many factors into consideration when planning our selling strategies for your home. Below are the high level steps that begin to outline the process of my Full Service Listings.

CMA: Comparable Market Analysis

No doubt, setting the price "right" is one of the most important first steps. Prior to our first meeting, I will spend a significant amount of time ringling museum sculpturestudying the market value of your home against other homes recently sold in your immediate area. I will also review those under contract and currently on the market as well. Depending on your home's location and activity in the area, I will span outside the immediate area to gather further statistics.

Listing Agreement: Review and Sign

I will discuss and completely explain our listing agreement with you. You will be given estimated net sheets outlining all the costs involved with selling. I have extremely competitive real estate commissions that I will discuss with you.

Getting the Home Ready

I understand that it is not easy for you to put your home on the market. There's a lot of work to do: cleaning, decluttering, organizing, even staging. If you are not moving out of the home while it's on the market, it's harder still. Yet, it is so important to have your home look it's best. There is just too much competition out there today to ignore this important step. I can help you with this. I do this everyday! I know what buyers want and expect. Ask me for suggestions!


Marketing Program: What Works

In a word: EXPOSURE. This is my forte. I get your home out there with many different forms of media. Most importantly, I have one of the strongest Internet presences in the area, which is probably how you found me. I also have a real estate blog and utilize many different Internet websites to showcase your listing. I also employ some of the traditional selling techniques such as putting your home on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service),, Google,, Facebook creating full color brochures, yard signs, virtual tours, brokers open, and periodic open houses. Here is a recent sample of some online marketing I created: Siesta Key Condo Virtual Tour I will communicate our weekly progress with you, keeping you in the loop and informed of activity and feedback about your home.

Negotiation: It's a Skill

Another important strong point of mine is expert negotiation. My experiences in real estate as well as in my former business careers in the public finance and corporate financial analysis fields allows me to succeed at the negotiating stage of the transaction; knowing when to talk and when to listen is crucial, but having and developing the numbers to back up your argument is one of my strongest suits.


Follow Through: Close the Home!

The details along the way to the closing table don't just fall into place. So much can go wrong. If this is not your first home purchase, you know exactly what I am talking about. There's so much to do in a short amount of time and there is no room for error. Inspections, possible repairs, appraisals, financing, insurance, and more. You can count on me to be involved every step of the way, leaving no detail to chance.
