How Jill gets your home sold

“It’s not important whether the home matches the way you live, but that it matches the way your buyers want to live!”

Selling your home is stressful enough, so you need someone on your team who understands what you're going through and goes the extra mile to make the process as easy and smooth as possible.

The power of presentation

First, Jill gets you started by ensuring that your home looks as great as possible, so that potential buyers see it at its very best. Jill starts your sales experience by offering 2 hours with a stager. It's not important whether the home matches the way you live, but that it matches the way your buyers want to live! Your stagers are professionals at helping to capture the buyer's interest from the moment they park their car.

The stager will walk through your home with you and suggest steps you can take to maximize the sales appearance of the home, including repositioning furniture. They may even offer to bring in some colourful large art pieces to optimize the presentation.

Next, a professional photographer comes in to photograph your home with still and video cameras. Quality photography is critical in an Internet world where first impressions are generally made online.

Jill arranges for professional cleaners and window washers to get everything from the mirrors to the windows sparkling for your first Open House.

On the day of the Open House, Jill arrives early to create ambience. She turns on just the right lights, adjusts the blinds, temperature, gas fireplace and anything else that needs to be perfect for the presentation. She has routinely made beds, stacked dishwashers, sprayed crawl spaces to get rid of any musty smell, oiled squeaky doors. She has even walked the dog while the buyers with their agent have been in the home.

In Jill's professional, experienced hands everything looks perfect. She makes sure the lawns are mowed and walkways power washed when necessary. In one case, she even visited the neighbors and asked them, if possible, if they could move their cars before the open house which they all did -- the sellers enjoyed 5 offers and the home sold for $120,000 over the asking price! She then dropped off a bottle of wine to each neighbor as a thank you for their help.

For condominiums, Jill routinely recycles all the newspapers in the lobby and has even brought in trees and plants to warm up a lobby. She brings a broom to sweep leaves out of the lobby, has painted the wall beside the elevator to remove ugly hand prints and routinely wipes fingerprints off elevator floor directories.

Jill has changed light bulbs in the lobby to brighten the initial impression when buyers enter the building. She once hired a pressure washer to softly wash the green slime off the front of a building.

Representing you alone

While real estate rules allow an agent to represent both the buyer and seller, Jill makes a point of never representing both parties. With Jill, you can be assured that all her efforts are on your behalf, to get you the highest possible price for your home.
