There is a big difference between buying a home and selling a home. They require tailored duties and services at each stage of the process.

If you are selling a house I will:

  • Expertly market your home through channels like social media, websites, and multiple listing services
  • Conduct a comparative market analysis to demonstrate what other homes in your area have been sold for in the recent months
  • Secure the assistance of other professionals for completing the paperwork accurately and while meeting critical deadlines
  • Complete a property profile of your home, including current conditions, surroundings and special features

If you are buying a house I will:

  • Educate you about the current housing market conditions
  • Discuss and analyze best alternatives that best fit your budget and criteria
  • Resolve any challenges that may arise when purchasing a new home
  • Provide the highest quality of service so that you feel comfortable and confident in the process
