Step 1: Let’s Talk

Meet with your me to discuss your plans and goals, trends in the current marketplace, and assess your property’s qualities and characteristics. I will analyze comparable property sales, assess the competition, work with you to determine pricing strategy, and outline a strategic plan to achieve the best possible result for you as a seller.


Step 2: Setting the Stage

To prepare your home for potential buyers, go the extra mile. Most homeowners don't maintain showroom condition, so stand out by making sure your home is impeccable. Eliminate clutter, depersonalize the space, make minor repairs, and deep clean. Curb appeal is crucial, so we'll strategize with skilled vendors for improvements, staging, photography, and video. Impress buyers within seconds by making a lasting first impression.


Step 3: Market

Our marketing team produces beautiful print collateral to strategically showcase your property. We develop and execute an intelligent, effective paid marketing plan in relevant publications. Eye catching property signs are produced and placed outside your property.


Step 4: Going Live

The listing is broadcast on and sent across our 100+ partner sites for the duration of the selling process. We continuously leverage professional contacts and the Compass Network Tool to find ideal buyer brokers. Open houses are hosted for both brokers and clients on an ongoing basis.


Step 5: Offer(s)

Once we receive an offer, I will contact you to review the terms of the offer and analyze the pros and cons. Together you will decide how to respond to the buyer in one of several ways: by accepting the offer, rejecting the offer, or making a counter offer.


Step 6: Escrow

Once a contract has been agreed to and signed by all parties, an escrow will be opened and the buyer’s contingency period will begin. Timelines for the completion of buyer and seller responsibilities will be listed in the purchase contract and adhered to in the escrow. We will keep a close eye on the timelines and ensure that you are in compliance with your responsibilities, while also holding the buyer’s side to task to keep the process moving.


Step 7: Closing

We will monitor and coordinate all the details necessary to get you to the finish line. Once the buyer has performed their inspections, removed their contingencies, and the loan (if any) is ready to fund, your agent will arrange the final walk through. At or near this time the escrow will close, payment will be made, and the keys will be handed over to the buyer.


Once you have sold your home, you’re free to take the next step on your journey. Whether this is relocating to a new city, moving into a larger home, or downsizing and enjoying your life as empty-nesters, knowing all your selling responsibilities have been taken care of will help you achieve peace of mind for your new path.
