AS SELLERS’ AGENTS

Interviewing Realtors Interviewing Realtors is the most important decision you will make in your real estate transaction. This decision could cost many tens of thousands of dollars in profit or loss, or could cost you the sale completely. Please see feedback statements from actual clients concerning just this question. By Shawn and Kelly J. If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I strongly suggest that you list your home with Jill Aldineh. While it might not seem that the listing agent choice matters… let me tell you – IT DOES! My wife and I have bought and sold 5 homes in the past 13 years. I have had the opportunity to work with several agents from many agencies all over the United States. None of them understood our unique situation and family needs like Jill. By Angela W. Jill worked with us to get us the best possible offer. We previously had the house on the market with another Realtor who did nothing. She had us redo the 1950’s bathroom and helped us to remove the items that we did not want when we moved. Also, was able to get us repairmen we needed. By Don and Donna P. Jill and her team are fantastic! Jill and Lisa took care of everything to get it ready, from getting it painted to picking out new appliances and countertops. No other Realtor has offered to do this. They kept me informed on progress and offered suggestions where needed. I can’t thank them enough! Jill, your staff (Lisa and Kathryn) help you provide excellent service. We appreciated your attention to all our questions and prompt answers! Thanks for making the selling process easier...and successful. By Tom and Carolyn N. Jill and her team were great. She was supportive and looked out for our interest throughout the process. She insisted on a re-appraisal for a faulty appraisal that saved us significant $. She kept us informed throughout the tumultuous negotiations. We would recommend her without reservation. When picking a Real Estate Agent (U.S.News/Money/Forbes) * Pass on agents who are family members and those who have never bought or sold in your neighborhood. The agent is a relative. Unless your relative is a crackerjack, full-time agent who specializes in your neighborhood, he or she is unlikely to do as good of a job as another agent. That can breed resentment, as well as derail your transaction. (U.S.News/Money) * The agent is a poor negotiator or fails to keep up with details of the transaction. In many cases, the most important work of an agent is not to find the home but to make sure the sale closes. That includes making sure the buyer is pre-approved for a mortgage, the home is free of liens before it goes on the market, the appraisal is accurate and issues raised by the home inspection are resolved.(U.S.News/Money) * Don’t be afraid to ask questions about how many listings the agent has, how many homes she has sold in your area, how often she will communicate with you – and in what format – and who she will represent in the transaction. (U.S.News/Money) * The agent does real estate on the side, part time. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you want to choose an agent who is actively following the market every day. If you’re buying, you want an agent who can jump on new listings and show them to you immediately. If you’re the seller, you want an agent who is always available to show your home to prospective buyers. (U.S.News/Money) * Make sure they offer adequate support. Be sure to do your research first. Are they supported by a team? An agent who has support is able to offer a high level of customer service to every customer. Most agents work with several clients at a time. The logistics of buying/selling a home are complicated, and it’s easy to miss something or fall short without a support staff. (Forbes) Pricing Your Home Pricing your home correctly is very important. Pricing your home too high or too low, could end up costing you money. Many people like the idea of pricing their home too high and they get attached to the price they are asking for. Sometimes this strategy works, but if there is no buyer willing to pay the price, the time keeps ticking and the days on the market gets longer and longer. A home price is what a buyer is willing to pay for the house at that time. and not what the seller is asking for. The home value changes constantly depending on the market condition. Having the right agent, is important to keep you from making mistakes and be able to get the maximum amount at a particular time. Working With Our Team Working with our team means you are working with several specialized team members. Please see below some of our clients feedback. By Kristin and Robert A. My husband and I initially had Jill over for an interview to access our home and she asked why we wanted to wait until March. She explained that we were in a prime time to sell now and if we waited until March, she couldn’t say if it would be the same opportunity... so we decided to move forward and sell... from start to finish it was 1-day shy of 7 weeks! We never thought that our home would sell that fast and we never imagined that we would have such an amazing experience in selling our home! Jill and her entire team, from Jason (handyman), to Brenda, to Lisa, to Kathryn, to Kevin/Jeremiah (movers) and back to Jill at closing we had the best home selling experience EVER!!! THANK YOU Team Jill By David B. Jill provided easy access to the resources necessary to get our house ready for going on the market. This was incredibly valuable as we were in the process of moving to the West Coast on very short notice and were overwhelmed with working out all of the logistics. Having help getting the house ready to show was instrumental to getting the house sold quickly. By William W. Jill, I said from the beginning, you bring to real estate the transparency homeowners need-not knowing they need it. Selling a home is about the “buyer not the seller. Most homeowners think their home is perfect and ready to be marketed. This often doesn’t match reality and you address that up front in order to achieve what the homeowner wants, a transaction that yields the highest value possible in the time table they desire. By Jonathan H. Jill had helpful expertise on where to set the pricing on our house, and did a great job advertising well. I was particularly impressed with the photography, so the house showed well online. But it was the support Jill was able to facilitate cleaning the house out (donation and trash pick-up) and to make some minor repairs (quickly, done well, and cost effectively) that really set her apart. Jill knew what needed to be done and helped us get the house into the best possible shape. By Linda S. The help with all the preparations to get the house ready, and the very fast results, three weeks from the listing date and it was sold!!! Showings Following the right steps will help sell your home faster and the best price possible. 1- Make the Most of that First Impression. A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and clutter-free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted - or at least freshly scrubbed - front door. If It's Autumn, rake leaves. If it's winter time, shovel the walkways. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home, the better. 2- Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends. Here's your chance to clean up in real estate. Clean up in the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen. If woodwork is scuffed or paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Fresh wallpaper adds charm and value to your property. Prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than how great it could look, "with a little work." 3- Check the Faucets and Bulbs. Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolor sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs leave prospects in the dark. Don't let little problems detract from what's right with your home. 4- Don't shut out a Sale. If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect's mind. Don't try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily plane them away. A little effort on your part can smooth away toward a closing. 5- Think Safety. Homeowners learn to live with all kind of self-set booby traps: roller-skates on the stairs, loose extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low hanging overhead lights. Make the residence a non-perilous as possible for uninitiated visitors. 6- Make room for Space. Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. They're looking for storage space, too. Make sure the attic and basement are clean and free of unnecessary items. 7- Consider Your Closets. The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now is the time to box up the unwanted clothes and donate them to charity. 8- Make Your Bathroom Sparkle. Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the bathtubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower curtains. 9- Create Dream Bedrooms. Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For spacious look get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must. 10- Open up in Daytime. Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how right and cheery your home is 11- Light up at Night. Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights both inside and outside when showing your home in the evening. Lights add color. 12- Avoid Crowd Scenes. Potential buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they're likely to hurry through. Keep the company present to a minimum. 13- Watch Your Pets. Dogs and Cats are great companions, but not when you're showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way. 14- Think Volume. Rock and roll will never die. But it might kill a real estate transaction. When it's time to show your home, it's time to turn down the stereo or TV. 15- Relax. Be friendly, but don't try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with minimal distraction. 16- Don't Apologize. No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. If prospect volunteers a derogatory comment about your home's appearance, let your experienced Realtor associate handle this situation. 17- Keep a Low Profile. Nobody knows your home as well as you do. But a Realtor associate know buyers - what they need and what they want. The Realtor will have an easier time to articulate virtues of your home if you stay in the background. 18- Don't Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store. When prospects come to your home, don't distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all. 19- Defer to Experience. When prospects want to talk price, terms or other real estate matters, let them speak to an expert - Your Realtor. 20- Help your agent. Your Realtor will have an easier time selling your home if showings are scheduled through the showing service. You'll appreciate the result.

Make the residence a non-perilous as possible for uninitiated visitors. 6- Make room for Space. Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. They're looking for storage space, too. Make sure the attic and basement are clean and free of unnecessary items. 7- Consider Your Closets. The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now is the time to box up the unwanted clothes and donate them to charity. 8- Make Your Bathroom Sparkle. Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the bathtubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower curtains. 9- Create Dream Bedrooms. Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For spacious look get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must. 10- Open up in Daytime. Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how right and cheery your home is 11- Light up at Night. Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights both inside and outside when showing your home in the evening. Lights add color. 12- Avoid Crowd Scenes. Potential buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they're likely to hurry through. Keep the company present to a minimum. 13- Watch Your Pets. Dogs and Cats are great companions, but not when you're showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way. 14- Think Volume. Rock and roll will never die. But it might kill a real estate transaction. When it's time to show your home, it's time to turn down the stereo or TV. 15- Relax. Be friendly, but don't try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with minimal distraction. 16- Don't Apologize. No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. If prospect volunteers a derogatory comment about your home's appearance, let your experienced Realtor associate handle this situation. 17- Keep a Low Profile. Nobody knows your home as well as you do. But a Realtor associate know buyers - what they need and what they want. The Realtor will have an easier time to articulate virtues of your home if you stay in the background. 18- Don't Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store. When prospects come to your home, don't distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all. 19- Defer to Experience. When prospects want to talk price, terms or other real estate matters, let them speak to an expert - Your Realtor. 20- Help your agent. Your Realtor will have an easier time selling your home if showings are scheduled through the showing service. You'll appreciate the result. The Selling Process Working with our team means you are working with several specialized team members. Please see below some of our clients feedback. By Kristin and Robert A. My husband and I initially had Jill over for an interview to access our home and she asked why we wanted to wait until March. She explained that we were in a prime time to sell now and if we waited until March, she couldn’t say if it would be the same opportunity... so we decided to move forward and sell... from start to finish it was 1-day shy of 7 weeks! We never thought that our home would sell that fast and we never imagined that we would have such an amazing experience in selling our home! Jill and her entire team, from Jason (handyman), to Brenda, to Lisa, to Kathryn, to Kevin/Jeremiah (movers) and back to Jill at closing we had the best home selling experience EVER!!! THANK YOU Team Jill By David B. Jill provided easy access to the resources necessary to get our house ready for going on the market. This was incredibly valuable as we were in the process of moving to the West Coast on very short notice and were overwhelmed with working out all of the logistics. Having help getting the house ready to show was instrumental to getting the house sold quickly. By William W. Jill, I said from the beginning, you bring to real estate the transparency homeowners need-not knowing they need it. Selling a home is about the “buyer not the seller. Most homeowners think their home is perfect and ready to be marketed. This often doesn’t match reality and you address that up front in order to achieve what the homeowner wants, a transaction that yields the highest value possible in the time table they desire. By Jonathan H. Jill had helpful expertise on where to set the pricing on our house, and did a great job advertising well. I was particularly impressed with the photography, so the house showed well online. But it was the support Jill was able to facilitate cleaning the house out (donation and trash pick-up) and to make some minor repairs (quickly, done well, and cost effectively) that really set her apart. Jill knew what needed to be done and helped us get the house into the best possible shape. By Linda S. The help with all the preparations to get the house ready, and the very fast results, three weeks from the listing date and it was sold!!!

Interviewing Realtors Interviewing Realtors is the most important decision you will make in your real estate transaction. This decision could cost many tens of thousands of dollars in profit or loss, or could cost you the sale completely. Please see feedback statements from actual clients concerning just this question. By Shawn and Kelly J. If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I strongly suggest that you list your home with Jill Aldineh. While it might not seem that the listing agent choice matters… let me tell you – IT DOES! My wife and I have bought and sold 5 homes in the past 13 years. I have had the opportunity to work with several agents from many agencies all over the United States. None of them understood our unique situation and family needs like Jill. By Angela W. Jill worked with us to get us the best possible offer. We previously had the house on the market with another Realtor who did nothing. She had us redo the 1950’s bathroom and helped us to remove the items that we did not want when we moved. Also, was able to get us repairmen we needed. By Don and Donna P. Jill and her team are fantastic! Jill and Lisa took care of everything to get it ready, from getting it painted to picking out new appliances and countertops. No other Realtor has offered to do this. They kept me informed on progress and offered suggestions where needed. I can’t thank them enough! Jill, your staff (Lisa and Kathryn) help you provide excellent service. We appreciated your attention to all our questions and prompt answers! Thanks for making the selling process easier...and successful. By Tom and Carolyn N. Jill and her team were great. She was supportive and looked out for our interest throughout the process. She insisted on a re-appraisal for a faulty appraisal that saved us significant $. She kept us informed throughout the tumultuous negotiations. We would recommend her without reservation. When picking a Real Estate Agent (U.S.News/Money/Forbes) * Pass on agents who are family members and those who have never bought or sold in your neighborhood. The agent is a relative. Unless your relative is a crackerjack, full-time agent who specializes in your neighborhood, he or she is unlikely to do as good of a job as another agent. That can breed resentment, as well as derail your transaction. (U.S.News/Money) * The agent is a poor negotiator or fails to keep up with details of the transaction. In many cases, the most important work of an agent is not to find the home but to make sure the sale closes. That includes making sure the buyer is pre-approved for a mortgage, the home is free of liens before it goes on the market, the appraisal is accurate and issues raised by the home inspection are resolved.(U.S.News/Money) * Don’t be afraid to ask questions about how many listings the agent has, how many homes she has sold in your area, how often she will communicate with you – and in what format – and who she will represent in the transaction. (U.S.News/Money) * The agent does real estate on the side, part time. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you want to choose an agent who is actively following the market every day. If you’re buying, you want an agent who can jump on new listings and show them to you immediately. If you’re the seller, you want an agent who is always available to show your home to prospective buyers. (U.S.News/Money) * Make sure they offer adequate support. Be sure to do your research first. Are they supported by a team? An agent who has support is able to offer a high level of customer service to every customer. Most agents work with several clients at a time. The logistics of buying/selling a home are complicated, and it’s easy to miss something or fall short without a support staff. (Forbes) Pricing Your Home Pricing your home correctly is very important. Pricing your home too high or too low, could end up costing you money. Many people like the idea of pricing their home too high and they get attached to the price they are asking for. Sometimes this strategy works, but if there is no buyer willing to pay the price, the time keeps ticking and the days on the market gets longer and longer. A home price is what a buyer is willing to pay for the house at that time. and not what the seller is asking for. The home value changes constantly depending on the market condition. Having the right agent, is important to keep you from making mistakes and be able to get the maximum amount at a particular time.

Showings Following the right steps will help sell your home faster and the best price possible. 1- Make the Most of that First Impression. A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and clutter-free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted - or at least freshly scrubbed - front door. If It's Autumn, rake leaves. If it's winter time, shovel the walkways. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home, the better. 2- Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends. Here's your chance to clean up in real estate. Clean up in the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen. If woodwork is scuffed or paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Fresh wallpaper adds charm and value to your property. Prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than how great it could look, "with a little work." 3- Check the Faucets and Bulbs. Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolor sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs leave prospects in the dark. Don't let little problems detract from what's right with your home. 4- Don't shut out a Sale. If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect's mind. Don't try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily plane them away. A little effort on your part can smooth away toward a closing. 5- Think Safety. Homeowners learn to live with all kind of self-set booby traps: roller-skates on the stairs, loose extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low hanging overhead lights. Make the residence a non-perilous as possible for uninitiated visitors. 6- Make room for Space. Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space.
