1. THE LISTING PROCESS

c. Complete and review the listing agreement with you.
d. Prepare your home for sale. I will spend as much time as needed going over the entire property with you, both inside and outside. I will make a list, with you, of suggestions and recommendations about your home so that it will be seen at its highest perceived value while competing in the marketplace.
e. Install lockbox, brochure box, and our exclusive “For Sale” sign.

3. MY COMMUNICATION WITH YOU
a. Keep my communication with you honest and will not tell you something just because you want to hear it.

d. Be available when contacted, to present any offer that is written on your property.
e. Qualify all purchasers to the best of my ability.

4. CLOSING YOUR TRANSACTION
a. Constantly keep you informed as to the progress of your sale from the time of signing until t he closing.
b. Work hard to handle any situation that may arise with mortgage companies, title companies, appraisers, underwriters, inspectors, purchasers and other agents during the time your property is under contract.
c. Be present at your closing. This is what we’ve worked to achieve and you’d better believe I’ll be there!
5. MY FOLLOW UP
a. Be available during those post-closing days when you’ll be having questions and concerns.
b. Be following up on your transaction after you’ve moved on. This includes being on my exclusive mailing list, not to mention an occasional phone call just to see how it’s going.
