Filling out the paperwork to list your home is only the first step in the long, long list of steps that we will take before sitting right beside you at the attorney's office as you finalize the sale of your home.  Using our years of real estate experience, combined with years of background experience in the the following fields: legal; radio & TV commercial copy writing; home construction; property investment & renovation; customer service; and computer technology, we will also competently and efficiently be performing most if not all of these other 40 important tasks and more:

  1. Data is collected from a number of real estate sources, analyzed, then shared with you.  We want to familiarize you with the current economic conditions, the recent sales history of the real estate market for your area, the history of those homes that did NOT sell (and had to be re-listed), and the currently active listings that will be your competition for buyers.  After this, we will help you sift through all this information to determine how your home compares to help you decide your most effective list price.
