If I’m ready to sell my home, what’s the next step?

Let’s schedule a meeting at your home. At that time, we’ll be able to discuss our approach for getting your home on the market. We’ll tell you how much comparable homes in the area are selling for and what we think we can get for your house. And, of course, we’ll answer any questions you have about the selling process.

There’s no obligation for this first meeting. You’ll get no hard-sell from us; that’s not our style. It’s just an opportunity for us to get together and discuss all of your options.

When you come to town, we’ll schedule showings in a way that makes the best use of your time. Once you’ve chosen a property, we’ll handle most of the paperwork and details to make things easy for you and ensure a hassle-free transaction.
