Selling, especially long-distance, can be complicated - and full of risks

  • selling too low because of an inaccurate valuation of your home (and possibly its contents)
  • wasting money on misguided "improvements"
  • coordinating the moving parts to get your house market-ready
  • security vulnerabilities during preparation and showings without someone in town looking out and locking up
  • interrupting and disturbing guests at your vacation rental - impacting reviews

But this transition shouldn’t disrupt your life.

Every Good Relationship Starts with a Conversation

Whether you’re moving up or moving on, get full value from your home and your agent.

When it's time to shift your Upper Keys equity into something new, you want to come out ahead and hassle-free. For many, this investment has both financial and personal impact. Walking away with a solid return and beautiful memories matters to you and your family. But without the right guide working on your behalf, the departure and be risky and stressful.
 
I understand how complicated it can feel when making big decisions from a distance. After all, the stakes are high. That's why I guide sellers through the transaction with comprehensive service and skillful negotiation. My clients let go of concerns, make informed financial calls, and move forward sooner.  
 
Here's how to get started:
 
  1. Call or text me.
    Fill me in on your home and your plans & timeline

  2. I'll get to work.
    Giving you an idea of where you stand and sharing strategies designed to maximize your selling price.

  3. Relax into your full-service experience.
    You'll never be in the dark or wonder if things are handled. Your success is my success - on every front.
 
There are many returns on this investment - financial and personal. Don't let a stressful, chaotic departure shadow this sun-filled chapter. Instead, let's start with a conversation. I'd love to offer my expert guidance so you can step into what's next with rich memories and the greatest financial advantage.
