Selling your home may very well be stressful, no matter how smoothly it goes. We’ve been there, and even as experienced real estate professionals, when it came to our home, we were stressed. It’s the nature of things when we move on, and few of us are wired to look forward to any major change in our lives; less so to boxes and moving trucks and storage arrangements. Both of us come from a counseling background, so we are experts at listening well, and at paying attention to what’s truly important to our clients. Whatever your reasons for selling may be, we’ll work with you closely to make sure that YOUR priorities are taken care of.
Of course in addition to that, we’ll handle all the details, large and small. We’ll make sure your home sparkles in print and on the web. We are always full service, and we treat your property’s presentation and marketability as an extension of our reputations. So you’ll get all the perks of people who listen well, who execute on your best interests, and who happen to be rather great at marketing homes.
