Over 95% of buyers look first online before they'll visit your property - that's where years of professional marketing experience benefit you. For each home, I develop an individualized marketing plan based on your needs - are you patient and willing to wait for the right buyer? Do you need to sell right away to get into your next home? Is your home going to be vacant and needs some extra attention? We'll sit down and talk about you, your home, your desires and your needs and I'll customize a plan for you.
