How much is my home worth?

The process of buying and selling a home does not have to be impersonal, full of drama, uncertainty or stress.

The poet, Maya Angelou, expressed my view best when she said  “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

My goal is for you to feel secure and confident in your decisions because I have kept you well informed of your options and the process each step of the way. My goal is that you will feel the peace of mind that you deserve throughout the transaction because of my systematic, organized approach to buying and selling a house.  My goal is that you will never forget how my commitment and support in helping you reach your goals on your timeline made you feel as opposed to being treated as a quota or merely a transaction.  My goal is that you will never forget how working with me made you feel.

Selling a home brings with it an array of emotions, decisions and expectations.  I am here to help you navigate each step of the process whether your circumstances are exciting, uncertain, easy or difficult.  I find that organization and communication are key in keeping the process running smoothly. Although there are some fundamental aspects to every listing, no two homes are alike, and no two seller’s needs are the exact same. I enjoy setting time aside to sit down and talk with you so I can learn what is most important to you in selling your house.  I make sure you are fully educated on the process so there are few, if any, surprises along the way.  I will work with you to put together a plan specific to your needs and timeline.  I will never hand you off to a closing coordinator or junior agent.  I personally service all of my listings from the initial consultation through the day of closing and continue to be a resource in the years to follow.

Although we will discuss each of these areas in greater detail when we meet, I want to take a moment to share the professional services I provide each of my clients and introduce you briefly to some of my partnering service providers.

Professional Photography

First impressions are everything and the difference between professional photos and those captured by an amateur or worse yet, on a cell phone, can be the difference between a home selling well or sitting on the market. Cat, of Cat Wilbourne Photography, photographs all of my residential real estate listings. In addition to being a lifestyle photographer, Cat holds a BA in photography and film and has focused on real estate and artecheterial photography since 2003. Not only does she have the ability to capture the essence of the space so it communicates at its best, she is just a wonderful person and is always well embraced by my clients. I attend all of the photography sessions so that Cat and I can collaborate on the end result.

Professional Staging

Because we live in and decorate our homes differently than when we sell them, I use the expertise of Julie Petrich to help with home staging. Julie is an additional set of eyes in determining the best placement of furniture and décor. She will always work with what the client has and if needed, will make recommendations for a few items to enhance the space. Julie carries with her years of experience in staging and design, having renovated and sold numerous houses of her own. You will find Julie very personable and will be surprised how slight changes can make a large transformation in appealing to the buyer.

Professional Measurements

The accuracy of reported square footage is an essential element in pricing the home. Because of this, I use Harmon Property Solutions. HPS employs licensed appraisers to perform all measurements to insure they are abiding by the strict code of measurement enforced by the NC Real Estate Commission. In addition, they provide room dimensions and a floorplan sketch that I use as an additional tool in marketing your home.

Professional Write-up

Buyers want to feel an emotional connection to the house before ever stepping through the front door. Every home has a story to tell and a message to share as to why the buyer should choose it above the others on the market. Great attention is given to writing and wordsmithing this seemingly small but highly important piece of the listing.

MLS & Social Media Marketing Campaigns

Most buyers begin their search on the internet, even before they secure an agent to work with. As a member of the local Triangle Multiple Listing Service, your listing will be marketed to all local member agents and firms in addition to 400+ nationwide listing sites including Realtor, Zillow, Facebook & Instagram.

Marketing Collateral & Professional Signage

Professionally created and printed marketing pieces are made available for showings and as informational pieces for when people drive by your house without ever coming in.

Consistent Communication

Based on your needs and preferred communication method, I provide on-going communication throughout the process so that you remain fully informed of the listing process, market conditions, showings, offers, and matters relating to the marketing and sell of your house.

Service Providers

Once under contract, it is not uncommon for buyers to request that the seller address areas that may be found on a home inspection. As we evaluate these requests, if you agree to the repairs but do not have a provider for those services, I maintain an extensive list of trades people and resources I will gladly make available.
