We recently sold a house using Ellen as our listing agent. Having compared and used agents in the past, we found that Ellen was very thorough with details and very receptive to answering questions and being someone we could bounce ideas off of. She is an out of the box thinker who adds little techniques that will help drive people to the house. For me the important characteristics are integrity, attention to detail and communication and Ellen fit that mold. Thanks for all your help Ellen!!

Resources for Selling Your Home

Perfect resources for home sellers. (Buying a Home?  See our Resources for Buying a Home here.)

#1.  Find the current Market Value of Your Home.

One of the first things a home seller will have to come to terms with is the fact that neither the homeowner nor the Realtor sets the price of a home.  The Market determines your home’s value.  A good Realtor serves you best when he or she is able to determine what price the market will bear for your home.  A strategic Realtor will know how to get you the highest price the market will allow.  If you want to know what your home is worth today, go to our Market Evaluation page and get started.

#2.  Educate yourself on the Selling Process.

A Realtor’s job is to guide you through the sale process from beginning to end; but, you will always have questions.  The following collection of posts answer the most common questions clients have asked us during the listing process.  The more you know. . .

#3.  Find Good People to do repairs to your home.

HomeKeepr – This is my personal list of vendors and repair people. These are all people I have used, my clients have used or who have been recommended to me by someone I trust. Having said that, I am not personally responsible for these businesses and I can only say that they did good work for me or my client at the time of service.


#4.  More Education. . .

Here are some posts that answer questions many of my sellers have had.  Browse the entire Seller’s Knowledge Base on the blog here.

#5.  Ask for help when you need it.

The most knowledgeable people ask the most questions.  If you need an answer to a Real Estate question, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or contact me through the website.  I am always here to help!  (I don’t have all the answers either, but if I don’t know it, I will certainly find the answer!)
