Using a Listing AGENT

Are you ready to sell your house?  Selling the house that has been your home for some time can be an emotional and stressful process.  Additionally, it's one of the most significant financial moves many of us will make.  This is why it is so important to work with a full time agent with whom you are comfortable with and who brings experience and knowledge to your transaction.

In today's real estate market, it takes much more than a sign in the front yard to sell a house.  A more successful, timely sale will be the result of using available technology, marketing experience and knowledge of the current real estate market.

Once you have decided to sell your house, the next step is to turn the task over to a Listing Agent.  So I'd like to invite you to talk about your selling options and how I can market and sell your home for top dollar.
