How do I get the highest price per square foot for my home?
I have developed a strategic system to make sure that everything that impacts your sale price is covered and there are no loose ends. I outline this process in my consultation with sellers. Also, many agents spend more time marketing themselves than marketing your home. I have two important priorities i.e. #1) to take care of you and your home; and #2) to attract and manage the strongest buyer team through to the closing.
