Selling Your Home
Michele tells every seller, "Real estate is a commodity, not a product." Demand and market conditions directly affect the value, and subsequently the pricing of the property. Michele will walk through the current market conditions with you so that you feel confident you are listing at a price that will incite your home to sell and not sit. She will go through the home and help you to prepare and stage it to highlight its best attributes. In addition, she feels that listening to you and your expectations from the start is very important. Michele is upfront and honest with you and often compares preparing to sell your home to Lamaze breathing class- if you know what you're going to encounter it won't be as painful. She truly does not want it to be a painful process and will identify any areas of anxiety you might have in order to assuage your concerns and help you to start and complete your sale with the confidence that you were well represented. She is fervently committed to the sale of your home. She utilizes the vast marketing tools of the International Brand, Coldwell Banker to provide your home with maximum exposure to the greatest number of potential buyers. If you have not sold a home in many years, you may or may not be aware that marketing strategies have changed. In today's market an aggressive internet marketing campaign is key to a successful and expedient sale. Your home will appear on over 60 major search and news websites including (but not limited to): Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, Yahoo, Chicago Tribune/Homefinder, Coldwell Banker National and Local (the latter of which receives over double the online views of any competitive brokerage). Michele looks forward to discussing the sale of your home and invites sellers to request a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis of their home anytime.
Working with Buyers
Michele enjoys working with buyers, both first time and experienced, to find the ideal next home that fits their needs and lifestyle. She will set you up on an mls access search to ensure that you are always the first to receive a notification of a new property in your area of interest or a price change of a property you may be keeping an eye on. She also feels that it helps you to be knowledgeable about value in the market and to feel confident that when you do find the right home you are paying the right price. Michele is an ideal fit for any relocating buyer because she loves this community and finds it an absolute pleasure to tour clients, who are unfamiliar with its resources, through the North Shore.
