Selling Your Home:  Where to Begin?


As experienced real estate professionals we help our clients navigate through every step of the

sales process, before, during and after closing.



First Impression

Remember what first attracted you to your house when you bought it?  And what was so exciting about that particular home?  

Now that you're selling your home, you'll need to look at it as if you were buying it all over again.  Let us help you create a marketing plan that best

fits your needs and your situations.

A spruced up house makes a great first impression on potential buyers.

An attractive property grabs their attention and makes them excited about finding a house that looks and feels well cared for.

So if you prepare your home correctly, you'll save time selling it when it's on the market.

A good first impression makes an impact on a number of levels. It's not just the way your house looks to potential buyers, but how it feels and

smells to them. How their friends and family will react.  How they imagine it would be to live there!

With simple improvements throughout your house, you can grab the attention of potential buyers and help them see why your house is right for them!

Understanding the return on investment for an updating project is an integral part of preparing a property for sale.  We help you through every step of this process. 


Here is a recent example of a home renovation.  The before & after photos really show the potiental in any home. The seller received multiple offers & $87,000 over the asking price!

If you are thinking of selling your home, we are your best choice!! Serving Walnut Creek, Lamorinda Area, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Martinez.





Plan Ahead!

We are happy to meet with you to prepare a free home evaluation of your home!

We will prepare a property market analysis, create a marketing plan that will net you top dollar for your home, plus help support you

through every step, until closing. 

Consider what your property looks like to people driving by or walking through your door.

What will they like or dislike?  What needs fixing, painting, cleaning?  What can you improve?

Whether you paint your house or fix up the yard, your efforts don't need to be costly; even inexpensive improvements and minor repairs go far

toward attracting serious buyers.




Our role is making sure your home is presented “For Sale” rather than “On Sale!”

Staging costs are an investment, not an expense.  If you’re feeling leery about the value of staging, according to the

National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of the home’s asking price, which generates a return of 8 to 10%!

For most people their home is their largest asset, so maximizing the profit by having your home

professionally staged is a very smart decision. It is proven that investing in staging decreases your days on the market and substantially

increases the prices buyers are willing to pay for your home. Statistics show that staged homes netted 3 to 10% more on average than their un‐staged competition.

We can say with confidence that 98% of our homes are able to list for higher once staging is completed and sell for well over asking.

This is because looks do matter! Our stager knows how to ensure that the first impression of every buyer who walks into your home is “Wow!”


Staging is truly a game‐changer, and most good Realtors know this. For additional “before & after photos” check out the Staging Photos tab above.


If we are the right fit for you, contact us anytime to discuss your options.

We look forward to meeting with you.

Thank you,
