Home

Many years ago when I was interviewing Realtors to sell my home in Tennessee, I asked each of them a question. One of the Realtors, told me she could not answer that question. Another Realtor gave me an answer, but I felt it was a weak answer. The Realtor I selected was the one who gave the strongest answer, and we sold my home very quickly in 2007 while others were starting to have problems selling their homes.

80% of homes sell because they are listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and a few others because someone saw a sign in the front yard. Virtually any Realtor will put a sign in your yard and list your home for sale in MLS. I use a list of proprietary techniques to get homes sold quicker and for a higher price.

Any Realtor can put a sign in your front yard and enter your home in MLS - I pledge to offer your something different, something more - which other Realtors can't or won't do. Let's talk!

Success Stories

This is not intended to solicit any listing from homes that are currently listed. If you have questions or concerns with your current Realtor, I suggest you openly discuss your questions and concerns with your Realtor; after all, you are working as a team to sell your home.

Sold 2 homes on the same street

I listed a home across the street from a larger, less expensive home that had been listed for 6 months. My listing sold in 2 months. After I put the sold sign up, the owners of the home across the street, that had been listed longer, asked their agent to call me to find out what I had done to sell my listing so quickly. Naturally, I don't like giving away my propriety techniques, but I provided a couple of tips to help out. After 2 more months, the home owners across the street decided to make a change in Realtors because they were looking at the very real possibility of having to live in different states until their home sold.

When I sat down with my new clients to develop our strategy for selling their home, the home owner said - "so, I guess you want to lower the price" and I responded, "Actually, no. I believe your home is priced well, but I'm not sure how well your property has been marketed. With your permission, I feel we should leave your home priced as it is and see if we can find the right buyer."

We sold their home in about 2 months without lowering the listing price.

Listed and sold a home for more...

One of my former clients contacted me about selling her home. I stopped by and walked through her home with her and sat down to discuss her thoughts. We quickly found that although she would be satisfied with $155,000, I felt that based on the condition of her home and the current market that we could sell her home for around $164,900.

We ended up selling her home in 33 days for full list price of $164,900.
