Let's Get Your House
First, A Little About Myself
I am very entrepreneurial, motivated, and results oriented. I have started several successful Internet-based businesses from scratch, and am familiar with all aspects of business management and sales. I am conscientious, highly reliable, and easy to get along with.
In 1994, I started an Internet company called InterWeb Connections Inc, which offered Internet marketing services to over 400 companies. I have 23 years of Internet marketing experience. Therefore, I know how to market your home online. Remember, 90% of Buyers start their search online and it is usually the Buyer who tells their REALTOR® what properties they want to view! This is why it is critical to have a strong online presence.
I became a REALTOR® in 2009, so if you are looking for an experienced REALTOR® who is dedicated to customer service with a solid track record of customer satisfaction, I would love to work with you to get your home SOLD!
It's really quite a simple equation:
You must first start out with the accurate pricing of your home. Then, once we have your home priced right, I will heavily market your home to both potential Buyers, as well as other REALTORS®. I will work hard to sell your home, but if your home is overpriced, all my extensive marketing efforts will go to waste.
As a REALTOR® I give your home full MLS® exposure on Realtor.ca and Private Client Services™ (PCS). I put up a highly-visible For Sale Sign, do Feature Sheets, and advertise your home in the local newspaper. Truth is, most REALTORS® do that. However, my value proposition includes much, much more!
I Write A Great Description
I am always surprised by how many properties have minimal or poorly written descriptions. Worse yet are listings with descriptions riddled with errors. I triple check to make sure all the information is complete and accurate. And I take the time to write a GREAT DESCRIPTION that will jump off the page and grab the Buyer.
I Pay For Gorgeous Photos
I hire a “Photo Pro” to take attractive photos. Everyone knows first impressions are important. GORGEOUS PHOTOS are vital to attract Buyers because 97% of homebuyers who searched for a home on the Internet found photos to be among the most useful features. Bad photos will diminish interest in even the greatest of properties.
I Pay For A Floor Plan
I also have a FLOOR PLAN done of your home, and post that online as one of the photos. Buyers love this!
I Pay For A Virtual Tour
FACT: An online listing with a VIRTUAL TOUR receives substantially more views than listings without a tour. Virtual tours add a “wow” factor to the property promotion and are an essential factor for property marketing.
I Pay For A Drone Aerial Video & Photography
Buyers want to learn about the area surrounding a property as much as they want to learn about the property itself. I use Rick Ward at RicksKopter to provide my clients with a high quality DRONE AERIAL VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY, which includes a 2-3 minute video with multiple clips and 3 HD resolution photos taken from a variety of angles and altitudes. Rick Ward is fully certified with Transport Canada.
Price! Price! Price!
It is the REALTORS® mantra: Location, location, location. But just as important when selling your home is PRICE! PRICE! PRICE! And while you can't do anything about the Location of your home, you are in total control of the Price you list it at. So now let's talk about price.
My Continued Marketing Effort
Many REALTORS® seem to turn invisible and disappear after they get a listing. I don’t! I will work hard to market your house and keep you informed.
