Thank you for considering us in the marketing of your home.  We bring over

15 years of experience to you.  There have been many changes to our industry, but the Sellers goal has never changed.  If you are like most sellers, you want to SELL your house for the most amount of MONEY, in the shortest amount of TIME and Pay the smallest amount of commission!


If this is true, please read on….


We have discovered that there are THREE key reasons why any home will or will not sell.  There are called the THREE  P’S!


v    Price – The number one reason why a house will or will not sell is price!  We will show you what buyers have been willing to pay for homes similar to yours.  Most buyers will have a mortgage, so we will discuss what the appraiser will write about your home.  Is it a buyers or sellers market?  Are prices going up? What is your time frame? We will discuss it in detail.

v    Product – Every home becomes a product the moment a For Sale sign is place on the lawn.  We will help you stage your home so that it shows its best.  It is hard to be objective when it’s your own home.  Let us help you shine from the beginning.

v    Promotion – We will show you how we will expose your home to the widest group of buyers in the marketplace.  A variety of sources will be used to promote your home, from 2 multiple listing services, to print ads, to a strong internet presence.


Selling a home is always a TEAM effort.  There are many players and just like a good baseball team or football team you need a good manager to bring it all together.  We are successful in helping people to assess their needs and reach there goals quickly.  We want to help you Sell your house quickly and Net the most amount of money!
