Susie and I would like to thank you for the outstanding results in selling our Danville home. Since this was the third transaction you have completed with us, we were confident that it would go well, but you exceeded our expectations, seems you have aged very well! Our goal was to sell for the best bottom line realization, while executing the sale within a time frame that allowed for an expeditious move to our new home in Lake Tahoe, and both these objectives were delivered.
We appreciated your good direction in preparation for the sale, and counsel on a timeline that allowed us to get the property ready, but keeping the sale scheduled in a sweet spot for the market. We fixed the core things that did the majority of updating to the house, but did not sweat the minor issues. And your stager helped to tie our furnishings, which were not necessarily current items from the latest catalog. The house looked terrific , and we were very confident that it was competitive.
I liked your approach to pricing, where we waited to the week we put it up for sale, and the market had heated up since our initial meeting, so we went out $50k higher than originally discussed. This in turn did not push off buyers, where we received multiple offers on the first day. I credit this to good marking leading up to the sale date, your quality name in the business, the timing, and the great condition of the house.
This positioned us well for the final key steps, the primary reason we hired you, the negotiation and closing. With multiple offers, you worked the agents to get the buyers to increase their price, or back out of the game. In the end, we never needed to counter offer, accepted a much higher price than our original asking, and had a backup just in case. You made it very easy for us, while involving our opinion where needed. Then you held the sale together with very little in time or money needed from us to complete all the required closing steps. I know this was not easy, and there was a lot going on in the background that we never saw, but we want you to know that this was very apparent to us, and for that we are grateful.
Thanks for all the great work, and we would highly recommend you as a real estate agent to other-you are a true professional. We would welcome any calls if they would like to talk with us to help in their consideration.”
