Everything sells, right? How I helped my clients get $125,000 more than their neighbor.

Townhouse Full of Upgrades

3 BED I 2.5 BATH I 1390 Sq Ft.

4210 S. Greenbelt Station Drive, Seattle WA 98118


Why did this townhome sell for $125,000 more than a nearly identical home in the community?

In this HOT sellers' market, sometimes sellers wonder why it's necessary to hire a strong and experienced listing agent to represent them. I mean, everything sells, right?

Take this home sale for instance. Another townhome on the same street, with nearly identical square footage and lot size, and with a backyard view just sold for $585,000

This is where I come in. My sellers hire me to achieve the very best results when I help them sell their greatest asset, their home. My work starts from the very first day I meet my sellers and view their home, giving them advice as to how we should position their home for sale. The pace quickly picks up while preparing the marketing. Once the home hits the market, I am literally on the phone constantly, talking to buyers' agents until offers are reviewed and negotiated. The work continues on till the transaction ends with a smooth closing.

With strategic planning, quality marketing, and expert negotiations, we received 16 offers and I was able to negotiate a final sales price of $710,000 for my sellers. That's $125,000 over the comparable sale that closed just a few days before we listed! My sellers were ecstatic with the results.

So, yes, experience, skills and passion do matter when selecting the listing agent, unless you don't mind walking away from an extra 25% profit from the sale of your home.
