I’ve had my real estate license for 30+ years and always dreaded working with Realtors because I know the (low) level of service most of them provide. When we decided to sell our house, we felt we were stuck so engaged several (5) realtors to come tell us how they would help us. The first 4 were all a bust – big promises, but they couldn’t convince me they would deliver.
We saw a listing in our neighborhood with Debe Maxwell’s name on it and it was priced pretty high – so we called her in to see what she would do for us (we had one of the larger/nicer houses in our subdivision).
She suggested a price much higher than anyone else, so I was skeptical. I asked her if that was her suggested asking price or our expected sale price, and she replied, “YES”, and showed us where her Ask to Sale prices were almost the same. Now, I’m interested. I then asked her how long it would take to get that price and she showed me where her average time to contract was less than 10 days. She then told us how she accomplished these impressive stats, and I was sold.
Her counsel on getting the house ready was realistic and the solutions were inexpensive. Her responsiveness was FAST. She listened, advised, took initiative – did all the right things to help a seller sell their house with minimal stress and cost. What more could you ask for?
We had a lot of action right away, and Debe brought in offers IN EXCESS of our asking price, within 5 days. And the deals were clean. She gave us sound advice on the negotiations (not always what we wanted to hear – but always “spot-on”), and left us thoroughly impressed. We found our Realtor!
BUT, because she sold our house so quickly, we were not ready to move, or look for another house! So, now you know why I took so much of your time to write this – when I think of Realtors, “it just doesn’t get any better than this.”
You won’t be disappointed!
