I Manage The Process, You Control The Decisions
Here’s a step-by-step walkthrough of what to expect during the selling process:
Our initial meeting will begin with me asking you a lot of questions about your expectations, needs, and goals associated with selling your home. By listening to your answers, I will develop a plan to meet your needs and deliver the results you are hoping for.
Whether this is the first time or the fourth time you are selling a home, I find that most sellers tend to have the same set of concerns and questions in the initial stage of the process. When will my home sell? What is a competitive price for my home in this market? Should I make any improvements to my home to maximize my return on investment (ROI)?
I will answer all of these questions and any others you will have throughout the process.
After our initial consultation, I will put together a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) which will analyze the housing data for your neighborhood and surrounding areas, as well as the condition of your home, to create a value range and expected sale price.
PREPARING THE PROPERTY
Based on the market analysis, I will provide you with recommendations for repairs you may want to make to leverage your ROI. This could range from fresh paint to more involved upgrades like countertops or flooring. I have extensive experience helping my sellers attract the right buyer as well as a vendor list to refer you to experienced contractors (painters, roofers, flooring, crawlspace, etc) in order to get the job done. I will be here to guide you every step of the way!
Once your home is prepared for sale, we will begin marketing it. We don’t passively market your home, we pay attention and do everything it takes to market your home as much as possible. This process will include;
- Determining staging requirements and options for your home.
- Bringing in professional real estate photographers/videographers to showcase the interior and exterior of your home with high quality photos.
- Syndication of listing to all major real estate websites (Windermere, Trulia, Zillow, Redfin, Realtor)
- Customized print materials
- Community/lifestyle focused blog post.
- Unique property video.
- Social media campaign – Facebook, YouTube, IG
- Open House.
- Targeted online advertising.
- Broker’s Open (where tour applies).
Yay! You received an offer. Now what? At this point, I will help you measure the pros and cons of an offer including which aspects are reliable vs. unreliable. I will walk you through the offer(s) to determine possible negotiations and to ensure the buyer could close on time. Once you are happy with the terms, we will officially accept the offer.
ESCROW & CLOSING
Once we accept an offer, we will begin working with a third-party escrow officer and your transaction will be managed daily from here on out to ensure a smooth closing. I will walk you through every step and keep you in the loop with any updates or changes as closing progresses. Once completed, I am happy to help refer you to resources and support with the moving process. Congratulations!

WINDERMERE BRIDGE LOAN
You can buy before you sell with the Windermere Bridge Loan. This is an exclusive tool that I can use to help you buy real estate when you find it.
You can make a non-contingent offer, which makes your offer more attractive to sellers, and you don’t have to risk losing your new home while waiting for your own property to sell.
The amount you owe on your home, plus the bridge loan, cannot be more than 75 percent of the value of your current home. The approval process takes only a few days.
The loan fee is just one percent of the loan amount, due upon disbursement of the loan. No payments are necessary on the loan before your home closes unless you choose to make a payment. The principal and interest are due when the home closes, or six months following disbursement, whichever comes first.
The Windermere Bridge Loan. It’s fast. It’s easy. And it’s at my fingertips, ready to help you get into your new home.
