Over the years, I have learned that certain steps ensure a more gratifying journey in the real estate process. If you are thinking of selling your property, read on to find out what you can expect as my client.


People sell homes for many reasons, and each situation transforms the process and the feel of the transaction. No matter what your situation, I will educate you on the reality of the market and build a strategy to make your home attractive to the market.


Thank you once again for the most seamless "no-hassle" house sale ever, Your high quality workers got our house ready in less than a month, start to finish, which ultimately sold immediately and for over the asking price.

My promise is to make the process as smooth and as rewarding as possible, from the earliest stages of evaluating your home to that moment when escrow closes.


In four broad steps, here's how I prepare my sellers to list their home:

  1. Comparative Market Analysis - Pricing your home with a customized Comparative Market Analysis.
  2. Listing Alerts - Leveraging technology to keep you updated and informed on like properties in your area.
  3. Inspections -- Typically sellers will at least do a pest, foundation and property inspection (and maybe other inspections, such as pool, roof, and/or chimney) before listing their home. These will be included in the disclosure packets that potential buyers will review.
  4. Suggested Improvements - Advising you on how to get your home ready for the market based on years of experience and industry knowledge of what buyers are looking for in a home.
  5. Refer Resources - Using my trusted network of home maintenance and home improvement professionals to make your home shine.

[Doug] is on top of every detail, he educates us on the market, he is always concerned with our interests, he deals well with all kinds of people, he is unfailingly friendly and polite... you can understand why every transaction has been very smooth for us.

Once your home is ready for the market, I will lead you through the fancy footwork of actually selling it. Here's how:

  1. Complimentary Marketing - Sit back and relax, I will handle all the marketing of the property, from full color brochures and flyers, to online marketing and virtual tours... and more.
  2. Networking  - The Beauty of 20+ years in the same business. I know Realtors, past clients, friends of clients, and clients of clients who are looking for homes - maybe one just like yours.
  3. Negotiating Offers: Sale contracts, addendums, ratification, contingencies... scary words, but take a breath! You're in good hands.
  4. Escrow Coordination - Escrow will never be smoother! It's all in the details and I got you covered right up to the moment that check is placed in your hands!
