You may be wondering: How can they do all this for less??
- We may ask you to help us show your home to potential buyers who do not have an agent. We save the time and expense of driving to your home and meeting the client to show the property. You save money!
- Some of our sellers run their own open houses. We lend you the signs, do the advertising, and coach you. We save the time and expense of holding the house open. You save money!
- We use outside services like our showing company, sign installers and marketing assistants to become very efficient. We ask our sellers to do some of the running to let appraisers in and meet us to review offers if possible. We save the time and expense. You save money!
We want to focus on where you need us most – marketing your property, negotiating in your favor and coaching you on handling those things you want to do yourself.
