1.                 First impressions are lasting.  The front door greets the prospect.  Make sure it is fresh and clean.  Keep the lawn trimmed and edged, and the yard free of refuse.  In winter, be sure snow and ice are removed from walkways and steps.

2.                Decorate for a quick sale.  Faded walls and worn woodwork reduce appeal.  Why try to tell a prospect how your home COULD look, when you can show by redecorating?  Neutral colors fit with any buy’s color scheme, and a new touch of paint will often result in a quick, profitable sale.

3.                Let the daylight shine in!  Open draperies and curtains and let the prospect see how cheerful your home can be (dark rooms do not appeal).

4.                Fix that faucet!  Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests faulty plumbing.

5.                Repairs can make a big difference.  Loose knobs, sticking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers and other minor flaws detract from home value.  Have them fixed.  (When prospects see things that need attention, they begin to worry about things they can’t see.)

6.                From top to bottom.  Display the full value of your attic, basement and other utility space by removing all unnecessary articles.

7.                Safety first.  Keep stairways clear.  Avoid a cluttered appearance and possible injuries.


8.                Make closets look bigger.  Neat, well-ordered closets show that the space is ample.

9.                Bathrooms help sell homes.  Check and repair caulking in bathtubs and showers.  Make this room sparkle.

10.              Arrange bedrooms neatly.  Remove excess furniture.  Use attractive bedspreads and freshly laundered curtains.

11.               Can you see the light?  Illumination is like a welcome sign.  The potential buyer will feel a flowing warmth when you turn on lights for an evening presentation.

12.              Clean, Fresh Coverings.  It isn’t uncommon to either clean or replace all carpeting and other floor covering to maximize interior appeal.



We’ve thought of Everything!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Homes of Distinction


  • DID YOU KNOW WE HAVE 30% FEWER HOMES ON THE MARKET TODAY THAN A YEAR AGO? This means less people are trying to sell a home right now yet buyers are still looking to buy. This means your house will have less competition. Allowing for better demand.
  • Many local communities are experiencing low inventory in fact in many price ranges and areas we are experiencing a shortage of good homes for sale.

Selling your home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life.

 How much is it REALLY worth? Who has the best negotiation skills to get me the best sold price for my home? How long will it take to sell? How do you handle buyers making undesirable offers?

As top producing Realtors in our office, with several years of management, relocation, lending and title experience, with many testimonials from past clients and a proven track record, it is our job to guide you through this complicated process from beginning to end. We want you to get the maximum value for your home in YOUR time frame. Here are just some of the things we will do when selling your home:

Buyers want to buy your home for as little as possible! Through detailed comparisons between your home and recently sold homes, and other properties currently on the market, together we can determine what your home is really worth in today's market. In the industry this is called a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA. We will do this for you, for free. Dan is an expert in determining market value by using a few different methods in his process.

Buyers have their own timelines, which might not be yours! We make sure they don't waste your time by qualifying them as to their real ability to afford your home.

  • More buyers interested in your home means more money in your pocket when it is sold. Our extensive marketing of your home assures you of maximum value. For example, this web site will market your property all across the web. It will appear on Realtor.Com, Yahoo Real Estate, Trulia, Google, Microsoft MSN HomeAdvisor, and other top national sites. We can place your home on our web site within a few minutes time!  We also constantly direct traffic to the web site for maximum exposure.

  • When we begin marketing your home, we will immediately notify all the buyers that our team and us are helping find their ideal home. We'll also notify all the REALTORS® in this area that we work with, who quickly tell their homebuyers. It is a powerful way to jump-start the sale of your home!

Contracts are complicated, and intimidating. You don't want to go to a closing with any doubts. You will have the full benefit of our real estate experience and knowledge for a smooth and successful closing. We recommend that you do not sign on any dotted lines without asking all and any questions you may have first.

  • We will walk through your home together with you, we will have our professional stager advise you how to present your property to maximize its selling price. Some improvements are worth it, and some are not! Be careful. Sometimes, just de-clutterizing and moving around some funiture, can make a huge difference.

  • You pay no up front costs for our services! So you can bet that we will work hard to get your home sold, for as much as this market will possibly bear. We will also work within your time frame and your needs. For example, sometimes it can be hard to sell and move out of your current home, and buy and move into a new home, all at the same time! We can help smooth this out. Sometimes, the dates of closing are more important than the actual selling price of the house.

Who says it is a bad market?  Hopefully not any Realtor your planning on hiring to help you sell your home.

Can the real estate market really be bad if we are having a record breaking year? There are agents out there who have given up on the market and believe it is "dead", and will tell you houses are not selling but we can show you statistics that tell a very different story. Homes are still selling. In fact more homes are selling in multiple offers right now than in the last several years. What do we do different? In today's real estate market it is more crucial than ever to have the right Realtor, or Realtors with the right marketing plan and an understanding of what it takes to get homes sold. We believe we are the rights Realtord for you, give us a call so we can discuss a plan and you can decide for yourself if we will work for you. CALL us TODAY AT 440-834-9800!
