Action Plan for Sellers

I believe there are three primary factors in my successful representation of buyers and sellers. The first is smart strategy and massive effort. The second is my personal integrity. The third is the respect for my professionalism by other Realtors. My desire is not just to facilitate a transaction, but to establish a lasting trust so that buyers and sellers look to me for future advice and expertise.

Importance of the Internet for Selling a Home

For 1/3 of the buyers, the first step in the home buying process was looking online for properties.
Eighty-seven percent of all home buyers and 94 percent of buyers aged 25 to 44 years used the Internet to search for homes. Ninety percent of sellers reported that their home was listed or advertised on the Internet.
