It is our job to either find that perfect home for you and your family or to help you sell your current home quickly, smoothly and at market value or above. To accomplish those goals we need to first understand your dreams and goals. Next, we need to develop the right marketing plan if you are selling your home, or define the perfect home if you seek your dream home.
For Sellers, we will design the perfect marketing strategy to meet your financial and schedule goals. We will then implement the plan for the successful completion of the sale of your home. Once the home is in contract, we and our extended support associates will work hard to keep the escrow on track and running smoothly. After Escrow closes we will be there for any further questions or assistance you may have.
For Buyers, we will meet and discuss your vision of the perfect dream home for you that meets your budget. Once we know what you are looking for we then discuss the ‘where’ aspect of the search. Once we are all in agreement on Features, Price, and Location, the hunt begins! We will be there to guide you through the possibilities until we find the perfect home. Once in escrow, we will fight for you to make sure the escrow goes smoothly and cost-effectively as practical until the day we hand you the keys to your new dream home.
Please call us at 805-260-1455 to begin the journey together!
