It's a great time to Sell in the Comox Valley! 

After the significant market changes in 2022, we are now seeing a more balanced real estate market. Inventory levels have risen to pre-Covid levels and home prices have stabilized. While Buyers and Sellers have the opportunity to negotiate their terms and conditions, it is not uncommon for reasonably priced properties in desirable locations to receive multiple offers.     

I am an award-winning, full-time Listing Specialist.  I work hard for my clients to ensure the process is simple, carefree and rewarding.   My business has grown primarily by referrals from happy clients, and my results have consistenly ranked me among the top 20% of Realtors in the Comox Valley for several years. 

Please contact me for a No cost, No obligation Home Valuation detailing what your home or real estate holding is currently worth and why.  I also provide professional staging tips and outline a Business Plan for the sale of your home, with progressive marketing strategies to ensure it stands out from the crowd and achieves its full market value.   It is no surprise that my listings consistently sell significantly quicker and with a higher list/sell ratio than the market average.    

The Home Selling Process

Home Preparation and Staging

Each home and location is unique.  I work with you to create and manage a home staging action plan that is efficient, cost effective and produces the best results.  Visit a list of Home Staging Tips  and call me for a complimentary home staging plan.  

Pricing Your Home Correctly

The Comox Valley is a competitive real estate market. I help you price your home correctly to get the full market value of your real estate holding.  My Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report,  provides you with a range of prices being paid for similar homes in your area (if applicable).  I also look at current market trends, the condition of your home and various other factors to ensure my forecast is accurate and up to date.  

Marketing Your Home 

I have over 25 years of senior marketing and business management experience - including many years focused directly on real estate marketing.  I prepare a personalized marketing plan for each real estate holding I bring to market. I finalize this plan with your valuable input on timing, and other goals to ensure the best results.

Offer Receipt and Negotiation

Once we put your home on the market and put the marketing plan into action, you should expect to receive an offer.  If the offer is for the asking price or more, and if the offer is agreeable to you, acceptance likely follows. My team and I will help you through the various post acceptance steps leading up to and beyond the closing date.

Sometimes the offer is for less than asking price, or has terms, conditions or dates that require negotiation. Working with you to make well informed decisions is central to what I do.  I have successfully negotiated thousands of business transactions for clients and I work tirelessly to ensure your needs are met. Once the counter offer decision is decided upon, I present that to the buyers for their acceptance or counter.  This process may continue until an agreement is reached.

Post Acceptance

Once an agreement is reached, there are still many details to be worked through. To name just a few: helping arrange suitable times for building and other inspections by the prospective buyers, receiving the deposit money, helping Buyers get title and other information needed, arranging for all documents to be transferred to your legal representative, etc. As your Professional REALTOR®, I work with you to ensure that all the follow-up deadlines are met; including deposits, building inspections, subject removals, conveyancing, and more. 

Every Step Of The Way...

You can rest assured our business dealings are confidential and that I am working for you every step of the way to make sure that your selling experience is stress free, efficient and rewarding.
