Selling: A Step by Step Guide


Whether you’re planning to downsize, trade up or relocate out of the area, when you choose to work with me, I realize that you are entrusting me to list and sell one of your most valuable assets.

Selling your property is a big decision. What determines how much you will get from your home will be a function of the Housing Market, the Condition of your house and the Agent you partner with. How your home is priced, how it shows and how it’s marketed makes all the difference, so it’s important to work with an agent you can trust to get the job done perfectly.

With me as your agent, you're not just getting a professional who uses the best tools and technology to sell your property for the maximum return on your investment, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of stress to you. You're getting transparency and instant communication throughout the entire process, so you can relax knowing every detail is taken care of.

Marketing Your Home Successfully


Pre-Market Networking

In addition to exposing your property to my own pool of qualified buyers, my affiliation with Sereno Group means I have the advantage of access to a large professional network of some of the highest producing buyers’ agents in Silicon Valley. I regularly share my coming soon listings with them and they in turn market those properties to their clients to generate demand for your home before it even hits the market.

Whether it’s through an online search, word of mouth, print ad, open house, broker tour, or private showing, my mission is to get every qualified buyer and agent in your price range to come see your home. The more places your property is marketed, the more buyers see your property, the faster it sells.
