  If you are seriously thinking about Selling your Home...          Wouldn't  you want to have a Realtor® with a   tremendous amount of Experience

"Always Working for You"..??  

I'm the most experienced Realtor® in Chestermere. Selling over 590 homes in only 14 years.....!!

   I Sold Over 430 of these Homes in Chestermere Alone.   

( Based on the number of sales since December 2003 to August 2017 in the MLS® system of CREB®)

Experience is NOT gained by the amount of years you have been in the business....

but, how much business you have done during those years.

 

 

 My Listings are Selling.....!!!       Why...???

I use a simple method. I give my clients an honest and up to date Market Evaluation. Not a 2007 or 2010 Market Evaluation just to get a Listing that may sit on the market for a few years.

Buyers always wonder why some properties are on the market for 1- 2 years or some even longer.....What's the problem....?? Why is this home not selling?? Does the home have a problem..?? or.... Is it over priced in this market...??

  

Believe me...! You do not want buyers to ask these type of questions about your home.


Having your home listed for that length of time will not be to your benefit, it serves no purpose.  When a home is priced according to actual market conditions it should sell within a short period of time. l wil not waste your time and energy of keeping your house 'show ready', telling you what is not true.

 

Always ask the person you are hiring about the amount of experience he or she has......How many Real Estate Transactions have they succesfully closed every year......None of them will be able to tell you they have SOLD more homes than I.... In Only 14 Years I have Sold over 590 homes....! With over 430 Sales in Chestermere Alone...!.....I can say it.....I can prove it....I know the Market...! " I SELL CHESTERMERE "    That is My Experience.

 

 Let my experience work for you every step of the way! My combination of skill, experience, and technology ensures that I can sell your home for the highest possible price and in the shortest period of time at the current market. I have the tools to meet the demands of a highly competitive, modern market.

Is it a good time to sell....??

It simply depends on your plans and when you are ready.

If you are selling your home to either upgrade to a new home within the same market, just remember that the home you are planning to purchase will also be affected by the same market conditions.

How much is it going to cost you to place your home on the market?

Well, the truth is that to place your home on the MLS® with me, will cost you nothing..! 

I will incur all expenses related to marketing your home and I provide full marketing service such as: MLS®, Professional photographer, SEO website marketing, Newspaper ads, Social Media Marketing etc.

When you list your home with me there are no "Up Front Fees" to pay.

What is the cost of commission?

This is probably one of the most important questions any one selling a home will ask. And yes, Commissions are negotiable, there is no "Fixed Fee".

 

 I like to compare this to buying a car. How much are you willing to pay for your new vehicle??

 

What is important? Do you want A/C..? Do you want Heated, Leather Seats..?? Rearview Camera..??.....4 wheel drive...?? and the list can go on and on.....

 

I provide Full Real Estate Service to all of my clients. If your home doesn't sell it will cost you nothing, not one penny..... I pay for everything out of my own pocket.


(Below there is a Ficticious Scenario of what commission costs could be)

For example, I could charge sellers an up front fee and then list their home at whatever price they may want to list it for, because in reality it then wouldn't make a difference to me if it the property sells or not, as I would have already received my "Up front Fee"!

Of course this would never be good for a homeowner...!

Or I could maybe say "If you list with me it will only cost 1/2 or 1/3 of the Commissions....(or any combination possible) and you will have to set up your own showings, have potential buyers contact you directly and then you still have to negotiate your final selling price.... or do your own Open Houses...!!  And what about marketing? Newspaper advertising etc?

Don't forget if another REALTOR® comes with an offer you will still have to pay him or her their portion of commission as well.

As you can see....You will still be paying commissions.....and what about the service..??

Or I could say to you "I will charge a Flat Fee", regardless of selling price.

As you can see, there are many possibilities on how you can cut the cost of commissions......Just remember, you will also be cutting the service you will receive.....

And of course as anything in life, You always get what you pay for.....!


So Yes, commissions are negotiable and I'll be happy to sit down with you to discuss what your future plans are and how I can help you get there.

If you are serious about selling your home within a reasonable time frame, call me and lets place your home on the market according to actual and up to date Market conditions.

2016 and 2017 has been what's called a "Buyer's Market".

 

It Simply means  there are more homes on the market than potential buyers. But I will sell your home..!

My Automated Internet Marketing System Online Presence: Available 24 hours a day!

My online marketing system allows me to make information accessible 24-hours a day, and to respond immediately and directly to each and every prospective buyer. From my website, prospective buyers can get information immediately about your home. They can access my site 24 hours a day and view your property listing! Through my Personal Home Search, your listing will be sent by e-mail to every prospective buyer in my database, where your home meets their criteria. Plus it will be e-mailed automatically to future prospective buyers as well. I also use Social Media to promote Chestermere to everyone....

Traditional Marketing

As soon as you list your home with me, I will enter your home in the Multiple Listing Service database. Other agents can immediately access your property information by computer. I also regularly publish in magazines and newspapers in the area and send out direct mail pieces to potential buyers.

Pricing Your Home

When you think about it, there are several other homes for sale competing with your home. I will help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. The way I do this is by generating a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report, which will show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area. You can complete my online form to get a feel for your home's market value.

Every Step Of The Way...

Remember, I will be working for you every step of the way to make sure that you get the highest possible price for your home in the shortest period of time.
