An Overview: How I Approach Selling A Home—While Recognizing Each Situation Is Unique.

I understand that for most people, your home is the biggest investment you’ll ever make, both financially and emotionally. There is so much riding on the sale of your house. The proceeds from its sale will continue to provide shelter and opportunity for you and your loved ones as you move forward. That’s why maximizing your investment is so critical. And to determine what the ideal sales price is takes vigilant market research and analysis. Estes is an ever-evolving and fluid market and I pledge to stay on top of it for you, so you have the information and insights you need to make the best possible decisions at every step of the process.

As three-time Realtor® of the Year in Estes Park, I will focus all of my experience and expertise on helping you efficiently achieve your goals. I will provide you:

  • Current Market Trends
    • I'll share detailed and up-to-the-minute market analysis so you can be an informed and active participant in setting the listing price, the likely time-frame and the most effective ways to reach the buyers most interested in your property. And then, throughout the process, I will keep you informed of any shifts that may necessitate a change in strategy or tactics that will provide an opportunity for you.
  • Experience
    • I have been helping people meet their goals in this unique and ever-changing Estes market since 2003. My approach often allows me to provide insights that may not be apparent to others as we move together through your unique situation towards your goals; from helping you determine a price-to-time-frame ratio you’re comfortable with to constantly analyzing the market, to doing research so that, for example, we’re sure your neighbor’s fence isn’t encroaching on your property (which can be a tricky thing to climb over right before closing), to negotiating the best price based on market realities, not opinions. I and my Coldwell Banker teammates have experience and resources to share that will benefit you. We have been helping people meet their real estate goals since 1985. We have seen many of the interesting “quirks” that can arise in a beautiful, rural place that people have loved coming to and owning a piece of for a very long time. (Note: Codes and surveying technology have evolved, but some of the “creative” things that have occasionally been “grandfathered” in over the lifespan of Estes Park can take some skillful detective work to uncover, and that only can be acquired with experience—coupled with a passion for making sure people are treated fairly. I have the experience to, shall we say, prevent the past from derailing (or at least complicating) your future and your dreams.) My goal is to use my experience and resources to make the sale of your property almost as easy as it was for you to fall in love with Estes. I will cover the details and communicate clearly with you every step of the way throughout your process.
    • I’ll work with you to set and get the best sales price possible, within the realities of market conditions and your timing goals. I will make recommendations based on my experience and those of my teammates, and explain the rationale behind those recommendations in terms that are understandable. (Please let me know if they’re ever not clear.) I like to work as a team, each of us adding to the other’s strengths. I also respect that you have the final say on what you'd like to list your house for; I realize it’s your home that you are selling.
  • Customized Customer Service
    • Some people want all of the details and some lean towards highlights. Whichever you prefer, I’ll have all of the pertinent facts and deliver them to you in the way that suits you best. Either way, I will make sure you feel comfortable that you have the information you need to make the decisions you can feel good about, each step of the way.
  • Local Market Expertise, Global Resources
    • Based on up-to-the minute market analysis, my team and I will develop a marketing strategy that is unique to your property and your goals, and then implement a communications campaign that will most effectively reach the people who will be most interested in your property’s unique combination of attributes, utilizing all of my networks and resources, locally and regionally as well as globally. (Because—more than in many markets—people are moving to the Estes Valley from all around the globe. Coldwell Banker’s worldwide network increases the number of associates available to market your home, as well as the pool of potential buyers. Additionally, we belong to the Coldwell Banker Vacation Home Program, which all 113,000 Coldwell Banker agents can access. These are excellent, far-reaching ways to connect buyer and seller.)
    • We also have a large network of real estate agents up and down the Front Range and market extensively to all Estes Valley agents, making them aware of the unique attributes of your property early and often.
    • We screen buyers to ensure they are financially pre-qualified, so that your process can move forward responsibly and efficiently.
    • When you’re selling your home, I recognize you have a lot invested there, both economically and emotionally. I work hard to price your home to help you meet your timing and pricing goals, and then I will market it strategically to the audiences that will most likely find your property most appealing. And I will screen potential buyers to ensure they are financially pre-qualified, so that your process can move forward responsibly and efficiently.

During negotiations, I will utilize my experience and knowledge — the experience and knowledge that got me voted Estes Park Realtor of the Year in 2011, 2015, and 2016 (not mentioned here to brag, but offered to provide you a sense of reassurance)—to get you the best sales price possible and help you reach your goals.

Let me show you the benefits of putting my expertise and the resources of the entire Coldwell Banker network to work for you. Please contact me when you're ready.
