I get it: it's your home...
for now and it's a journey. I will make staging, pricing and process suggestions but it's YOUR call.
Using my past project management experience with Price Waterhouse, I've customize my worksheets/checklist of the process of who does what by starting/due dates. I feel like I am the process consultant to make sure it's all going smoothly and y'all make the decisions. Goals: get the best price for your house with the least amount of drama. I'm an experienced realtor and understand the "in's and out's" and I want you to sleep nights.
I don't do "dual agency" when listing your house. This means if a potential buyer calls to see your house, I'll refer it out to another agent. I don't talk out of both sides of my mouth.
I also follow up on EACH and EVERY showing, email or interest in your listing. This takes time but pays off. I will make a spreadsheet of all showings, feedback received (or not... and email/text and/or call showing buying agents till I get a "no" OR an offer :) If you took the time to leave your house for a showing, it's a potential lead and it will be pursued till an offer is received. Even once under contract, I love getting back-up offers for Plan B! Again, a little more work but that's my job.
The adage "you get what you pay for" is SO true when using the Berkshire Hathaway Home Service team from experts in lending, title, warranties, my BIC's boss is an attorney (who is a great reference to make sure all are coloring in between the lines) and my own BIC is a pro in new home construction. In the best case scenario, one would hope all transactions go smoothly but it's when they don't, that it's best to have a qualified and trustworthy team on your side.
>>> It is all about trust. Berkshire Hathaway is about the 3rd most trusted name in the nation and I'd like to be your trusted agent.
