For over 30 years, I have helped buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, including residential,
commercial, and investment real estate. Real Estate can be a very overwhelming process, I find great joy
in walking my clients through each and every step to help alleviate the stress when making one of the
largest asset decisions in a lifetime.
I genuinely want the best for my client’s and believe finding the right property for them is much more
important to me than a quick decision and sale. My business has grown based on return clients and
referrals, which I find this to be the highest form of compliment from my past clients. I love my job and it
is truly a great privilege to help my client’s turn their dreams into realities.

My Selling Philosophy
DELIVERING EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE TO OUR CLIENTS
The home-selling process can be complex and stressful if not managed properly. While each transaction
is different, every homeowner wants the same thing - the best possible price with the least amount of
hassle. I committed exclusively to assisting homeowners through the home selling process and marketing
the property to get the highest possible price in the shortest period of time.

For a typical listing, the average agent spends $750 marketing a home. I invest on average $6,000-$10,000
in preparing and marketing each home. Below are some of the services that I offer to listing clients.

Selling a home can be a high-stress and time-consuming endeavor if you chose the wrong agent. To get
the best price for your home, the process includes knowing what cost-effective or no-cost improvements
to make in order to get the best return, recommending and overseeing the right vendors, preparing the
disclosures and other legal documents, effectively staging the home to get noticed and sold, correctly
pricing the home to attract buyers, marketing the home, negotiating the offers, and smoothly going
through escrow. Not just anybody can master all of these tasks. You need a great realtor.
To ease your burden, I have shifted much of the work relating to home improvement, marketing, negotiation,
and escrow to myself. I have a team of specialists (i.e. interior designers, licensed contractors, handymen,
graphic designers, copywriters, attorneys, a dedicated online and social media marketing specialist) all
devoted exclusively to assisting you through each step of the home-selling process.
It’s unlikely that another agent, no matter how good, can match my depth of resources or combined

The right marketing plan can significantly increase the value of your home. I do more marketing for our
properties than any other agent or team. Therefore, I have devised a strategic marketing plan with key
aspects that have proven effective for our clients.
I work closely with the best marketing team, with a background in luxury real estate locally and globally,
to craft a message that highlights all of the best features of your home and the neighborhood. Unlike
most other Realtors®, I do not outsource this important function to third-party providers of overused
templates utilized nationwide. My collateral is custom, and unique to your home.

I aggressively promote your open houses through eblasts, social media campaigns, postcard mailers, and

feel like the home is more desirable. This contributes directly to our strong sales statistics.

Steps To Selling Your Home
I will work with you to unleash your home’s value and work directly with vendors on cost-effective
improvements, ensuring the work is done beautifully, within budget, and on time. This service is FREE of
charge. I will engage the right staging company for your style of home, and work with them to enhance
the value of your home by providing the right decor to accentuate positive features.
Under California law, sellers face significant liability if they fail to disclose a material issue to a buyer.
Unfortunately, most other brokerages instruct their agents not to provide any legal advice related to
the disclosures. I have licensed California attorneys available to answer all of your disclosure related
questions and guide you through the forms.
My marketing team works with a professional photographer to showcase your home in prominent local
newspapers, in online marketing, and in beautiful custom brochures. Our team also will create and
launch a custom website of your home, featuring a photo gallery, a video tour, a 3D tour, and property
information. I bear ALL of these costs.
I organize broker tour and public open houses that are aggressively marketed for optimal attendance.
OFFERS AND SALE
I will work with you through the negotiation process to make sure you achieve the highest possible
price. I also will guide and keep you apprised of all steps during the escrow process.
CLOSE OF ESCROW AND KEY EXCHANGE
The sale of your house is official and has been recorded with the county. All keys will be provided to
the buyers. Congratulations!

Pricing strategy is an art, not a science. Experience matters! I assess accurate, up-to-date MLS data to
