Attention home sellers: Let me help you make the best first impression. I bring a keen eye for detail when assessing your home. I will provide an honest evaluation to help you prepare for successful listings. Nobody beats our marketing lead by Max Brown, a professional photographer who takes aerial pictures and develops 360o virtual tours of your home. These virtual tours allow buyers to step inside and seamlessly navigate through every room, viewing the property from every angle with hundreds of high-resolution photographs. It’s like being there in person, exploring every detail of your home from the comfort of their own living room. This is the first step to getting feet in the door. Our team’s expertise in digital marketing ensures your home receives the attention it deserves. Trust us to make every moment count. Remember, “MARKETING MATTERS”
Looking for a successful real estate transaction from beginning to end? Look no further. Here are a few reasons why you should hire me.
Customer service is often overlooked. I am quick to respond, ensuring you never feel left in the dark.
I am customer service-driven and dedicated, reliable, and motivated to exceed your expectations at every turn. Your satisfaction is my top priority. I am committed to providing you with the attentive and personalized service you deserve.
Whether you’re selling or buying, leverage my extensive housing expertise to ensure your home is perfectly primed for listing or purchase. I’ll navigate the nuances of various loan types like VA, FHA, or USDA, ensuring your property qualifies to capture 100% of your viewing audience. As a seller, I’ll strategize solutions to maximize your home’s appeal, while as a buyer, I’ll guide you through the process to secure your dream home with ease.
For each transaction there is a team involved, such as lenders, appraisers, closing attorneys, home inspectors, pest company, septic companies, etc. Effective communication is paramount, and I ensure timely updates and coordination to keep the process moving forward. By proactively managing every aspect, I minimize the frustration for all parties involved.
To make things go a little quicker I have the means and ability to use electronics for contracts. For the other half of us that would choose to sit down and use paper and a pen! This is a choice you will make. Whatever you are most comfortable with. I want to make sure you know what you are signing.
For almost every single loan, a house will be appraised. Partner with me a seasoned realtor who processes extensive experience handling all types of loans to streamline the appraisal process and eliminate costly delays by avoiding the need for multiple visits from the appraiser, saving you time and money.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. Coldwell Banker Select Properties will donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital upon any closing of property. I’m looking forward to working with you.
