Our 99-Step VIP Seller Program


According to the National Association of Realtors, the three major sources for buyers are:
1) Internet – according to the National Association of Realtors, 92% of home buyers use the Internet to begin their search. And each property has 3-5 seconds to grab their attention.
2) Realtors – although many buyers search for homes online, most still use a Realtor, who helps them find and buy the house.
3) Drive-bys – people still like to drive by and suss out neighborhoods when they are ready to buy a home.

Our Marketing Plan addresses these three segments to MAXIMIZE EXPOSURE and make sure your home is found and STANDS OUT from the competition. Our services include:

Professional Home Staging Advice
Since many buyers will compare your home with new construction model homes, it is crucial that your home presents like a showroom. Our professional stager will provide FREE advice on how to show its best features, appeal to a wider public and help people visualize your house as their future home. Realtor.com confirms that Home Staging can help sell a home for more.


Professional Photos

Since we only have 3-5 seconds to catch a buyer’s attention, a great photograph will help draw attention to your home and encourage a positive emotion to be associated with it. Inman.com provides 6 reasons why homes with professional pictures sell quicker and for a higher price. Professionally edited Visual Tours, Aerial Drone Videos and 3D Virtual Tours are some of the options we may use to highlight the best features of a home.

Social Media Blast
We are Internet savvy and exploit the best social media exposure, including Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, blogs and classified services like Craigslist and Backpage.

Open Houses
If the neighborhood allows it, we arrange for Open Houses as often as possible.

International Exposure
Because we have the Certified International Specialist (CIPS) designation, we have access to Proxio.com, an international real estate portal where realtors from many countries go look for properties for their clients.

Reverse Prospecting
Give that one of the major sources for buyers are busy Realtors, we make sure that when a property is first listed, we email all Realtors who have prospects registered in the MLS looking for a property with the same parameters. This way we make sure they don’t miss it inadvertently.

Pre-Marketing
Making the ‘biggest splash” is what will get the most buyer attention and increase the likelihood of enticing multiple offer situations, where interested buyers compete against each other to buy your home. This is “best case scenario” to get the highest selling price. So we start marketing our listings BEFORE they are publicly on MLS within our office or 350+ agents, and using signs and social media.

Strategic Pricing
We are experts at figuring out the “perceived value price band” for each of our listings, so your home gets the most visibility without leaving any money on the table. That’s why our listings sell quicker and for higher prices than average.
