You deserve a unique SELLING SUCCESS STRATEGY, customized to fit your home's condition, your timeline, your family's needs and your financial concerns. Together we will create your personalized, home selling success strategy. It doesn't cost you a dime, but it can easily gain you thousands more.


Absolutely not. You deserve a selling strategy customized to fit your needs.  There are many reasons to sell a home. Those reasons impact you, your family and your finances. Here's how...

If you are being forced to sell your home due to divorce, job loss, forced relocation, foreclosure or a death, you may require a faster sale, over waiting for the highest offer. You want to generate massive interest and close fast, without giving away all of your hard-earned equity. 

If your home is not in great condition, I have a network of wholesale buyers, flippers and investors that are always looking for properties to buy. If privacy is a concern, I can discretely promote your home without a yard sign. Never stress over your home's poor condition, I have potential cash buyers for you already and they typically pay more than an iBuyer online but just to be sure, we will look at all options to find the one that fits your needs best. 

Does your home need work? Do you have time to make repairs before it goes on the market? I can help you with contractors who will get paid at closing, which means no money out of your pocket until your home sells. You simply pay for the repairs at the closing table. Let's evaluate whether those repairs will net you more money once they are completed. Not all repairs will bring you higher offers.

If you are considering selling your investment properties, downsizing or upsizing, this may find you utilizing a 1031 exchange, buying a home under your 401K, or utilizing a reverse mortgage, so your strategy will require a team of experts and strategic financial planning before your home ever hits the market. I am an investor friendly agent, working with short-term rental owners who wish to add to their portfolio or sell one of their short-term rental properties. My network of vacation rental owners may help find you the perfect buyer when you sell. 

Do you have zoning questions regarding short-term rentals or other real estate related ventures in North Georgia? I can help. 

Are you out of state? Long-distance clients are not a problem. We can typically handle business by phone, video calls and e-sign.

Let's talk about your specific 1031 exchange or investment strategy.

For the traditional home sale, you will be selling and buying. You need a seamless transition. Let's discuss how that will happen. Do you want to load your personal belongings into a POD or storage unit while you rent in between buying and selling? Do you need extra time in your current home after the sale? Answering these questions is part of your selling success strategy. I will make sure your sale and purchase come together to meet your needs. Not only that, but I do also have programs, which may be a perfect fit for your situation. These programs give sellers the ability to find and buy their dream home first, then sell the first house after they move out. Sure, there are minimal fees for this benefit, but what an amazing load of stress it takes off your shoulders with no showings, cleaning up the house over and over or worrying about pets when selling your home.

If you have time to do repairs to attract the top dollar sale of your home that's great. Your selling success strategy would consist of discussing which projects will net you the highest return on your investment as well as which projects are unnecessary? My goal is to keep as much of your equity in your pocket as possible. 

Let's talk so we can discuss your timeline.


It may still be considered a seller's market in most areas of North GA (May 2023 at the time of writing this) but we are trending into a neutral market giving buyers more leverage and trust me they will use it. Homes are staying on the market a bit longer and the number of buyers willing to make a quick, over asking price offer is becoming a thing of the past. Buyers are starting to ask for seller paid closing costs for the first time in years.  It will take buyers a little time to shift their mindset. The expectation is still "there must be something wrong if a house doesn't go under contract within the first week". It is more important than ever to devise a great selling strategy, so your home captures a buyer fast without giving away your equity. I will equip you with the statistics and metrics for your area, so you know what you are up against. Preventing your listing from sitting on the market too long by finding that sweet spot, to draw in the highest number of buyers within the first week is the name of the game in most areas at this time. 

Having an agent to negotiate with the buyers and the buyer's agents, removes you from the direct contact and allows you to make objective, sometimes difficult choices without the personal connection to the buyers. All of the phone calls and emails are only coming to you from one source (your agent). I will filter through the communications bringing you all offers, provide professional input and manage the entire process on your behalf, so you can sleep well and focus on what is most important for you and your family.
