Buying or selling a home is a huge deal. There are studies that buying or selling a home is in the top list of ultimate stressors in one’s life. The reality is, you don’t need studies to prove how stressful and complicated the process can become. You know from experience and from watching those around you.
I have been a Real Estate Agent since 1985. I have worked in almost every up and down market you can imagine in the Puget Sound (except I was too young for the “Seattle-turn out the lights” billboard). 1990/91 was the first tough recession I helped clients through. I used that experience to help our clients through the recent 5 year recession. It was not always easy, and there were many tough conversations, but it was worth it to be there for clients in good times and bad.
Today we are in a brisk sellers market and a tight buyers market. We experienced a similar market in the early 2000’s. This comes with its own need for expertise on how to not leave money on the table when you sell, and how to procure a home when 8 other buyers want the same one. I am fortunate to be at the place in my career where I am very good at what I do, and have a seasoned team that is right in step with our mission to serve our clients. Here is what clients can expect when they work with us.
Staging is a general term used to describe the physical preparation of your home for market. Increasing the visual appeal of your home will attract a wider range of buyers, potentially increasing the sale price and decreasing the amount of time spent on market.

This vacant home on Mercer Island felt a bit dated.
Fully staging the living room made the space feel modern and livable.
The comfortably staged family and dining rooms made potential buyers feel at home.
This listing ended up selling above the asking price in only a few days.
Why do I need professional photography?
The vast majority of buyers will first see your home online. Beautiful HDR images make a great first impression and help to generate interest in your home before buyers walk in the door!
What is HDR Photography?
An HDR photo is actually a combination of 3-9 photos taken at different exposure levels. These photos are then combined with software to create an amazingly realistic high definition image. Our professional photographer manipulates each photograph to showcase the natural light and color both inside and outside your home.
