If you are thinking about interviewing a real estate agent to sell your home, I want to talk to you about a guy named Jim.
Jim found me on the internet, read my reviews, and trusted me to sell his home after he had a lot of experience with a top-rated market expert and company in New York City.
I was selling a property similar to Jim’s in the West Village. It had been on the market for some time. We took some excellent pictures and were seeking a record price.
Jim called me up and said, “I’ve done a lot of work on this home and no property in this co-op has ever sold for more than $1.3 million, and I think my place is worth much more than that.”
I told him that I knew this market really well and that it would be difficult to get $1.5 million in this co-op. He then clarified that he needed to get at least $1.44 million or $1.45 million, otherwise he wouldn’t sell.
"We got Jim $1,496,000 in cash."
I said, “Okay, here’s what we have to do: We have to look at the presentation of the property, create an effective strategy, and get the cooperation from the tenants that currently live there.”
He told me it would be no problem, that the place looked great, and the tenants were wonderful. I went over there and he was right. The place was immaculately staged and the tenants were going out of town at a key time.
We held eight open houses in two weeks and brought 200 people through the property. We priced the home below what he wanted and fielded multiple offers.
Ultimately, we got Jim a sales price of $1,496,000 in cash.
You might think that any agent with the right property can get that kind of price, but you’re wrong. We were able to get 10 offers. People say they don’t want to be in a bidding war, but if you really want a home and you can afford it, then you will do what it takes to get it. That is what I have learned in my 12 years of experience.
We put massive energy, positive and consistent messaging, skill, and know-how into this sale, and our power team was able to get Jim a record price.
Jim gave me a five-star review that I would be happy to send to you.
If you have any questions about how we can help sell your home or you would like to learn more about our current market, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
