Selling Your Orange County Home
We know the process of selling a home can be a stressful time for our clients. That's why we work hard to sell our clients' homes quickly and for the best price possible. It's our goal to surpass expectations and to provide outstanding service to every one of our valued clients.
The extensive marketing plan we execute for our home sellers is not a plan your typical real estate agent carries out. In fact, hardly any agents do what we do! The effectiveness of traditional, passive marketing such as print ads and open houses is progressively declining. Over 90% of buyers search for their home on the internet. To successfully reach this increasing segment of buyers we utilize cutting edge technology and strategies...
Our Extensive Services & Marketing Plan Include:
1. Performing a thorough comparative market analysis to determine the most appropriate listing price for your home.
2. Offering a FREE Interior Decorator Consultation for expert home staging advice to get your home seen in its best light.
3. Professional photography including sunset lighting and pictures to optimize the appearance of your home in all aspects of our marketing and the Multiple Listing Service.
