A typical real estate transaction is comprised of over 300 distinct
activities and 15-20 participants. It is one that can involve over 100
separate forms and documents. Finding a suitable buyer and negotiating
an offer is only the beginning.
Our commitment is not only to market your property so as to maximize
return, but also act as your enthusiastic advocate, capable negotiator,
source of wisdom and coordinate the entire selling process. We advise
you of your rights and obligations under the contract and help you
respond to offers and counteroffers.
Perhaps the most important stage in the listing of a property is an
in-depth meeting with you so we can fully understand your wants and
needs. This will help us prepare a detailed analysis of the value of
your property and an estimated seller net sheet. We will also prepare a
detailed marketing plan and explain the various options for showing,
advertising, and other means of exposing the property to the market.
This culminates in a listing agreement, which allows us to move forward
with presenting your home to the marketplace.
Upon acceptance of an offer by both parties the next phase begins. This is
the most complicated and stressful part of the process and our goal here
is to move you to a successful closing as smoothly as possible. This is
where the strength of our negotiating skills comes into play. We will
promptly present all offers with our analysis of their strengths and
weaknesses. We will advise you how to accept, reject or counter the
offers and prepare all documents for your signature. We will also
prepare a revised seller net sheet to show you the exact breakdown of

the cooperating broker, loan officers, title officers, inspectors and
pest control companies to help insure all work is done properly, all
time frames are met and any outstanding contingencies are removed. At
closing, we review all closing documentation and instructions and
accompany you to the title company for signatures and to answer any
questions or offer remaining explanations.
The myriad details that make up the selling process are all vitally
important. An oversight can expose you to a situation that may impact
you years later. Our step-by-step system of checks and balances helps
make certain things are done thoroughly, correctly and in a timely
manner for your benefit and protection. Homeowners entrust the sale of a
major financial asset to their real estate firm. We commit ourselves to
only the highest standards of service to earn that trust.
