The biggest question you should be asking is what sets me apart from other realtors. I believe it is my hands-on, customer oriented approach and my commitment to high quality:
- First impressions are of utmost importance when selling a home. I will work closely with you to get your home looking its best and staged well.
- 92% of buyers search online for a home, so I pay particularly close attention to how your listing will look online. I create an internet marketing strategy for each of our listings. The first step is getting high quality, clear photographs of all the areas of your house, and including the maximum allowable photos with the listing.
- I know the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area. I am a 20+ year residents who understands the local housing market. I live, shop, and am raising my families here. I am accessible from 8 am to 9 pm to answer your questions and provide assistance.
- I make it a priority to schedule our own listing appointments, and personally follow-up with other agents after the showing. This keeps the lines of communication open and allows me to get the most feedback from showings, which will help me better market your home.
I use a comprehensive marketing plan to get your house listed, under contract and closed as quickly as possible:
