Preparing Your Home

It is not an easy decision to sell your home. It takes great courage to pack up your life in an endless sea of boxes and move to a new home. With all the ongoing stresses of the move, it is my goal to have you sleep well at night knowing that the sale of your home is in good hands, and that all that could be possibly done to market the home is being done.

If anyone is looking for a great realtor, This is the guy to use. We sold our home with Michael, and bought our new home with him. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly he always got back to us, and set up appointments. He made what most people hate doing fun and enjoyable. It was a pleasure doing business with him!!! Thanks Michael, We Love our new House!! If we ever moved again, we would definitely use him again. From stranger to friend in one easy Move!!

Image is Everything: Creating a Positive First Impression is Key to Selling Your Home

“First impressions are key in real estate as buyers often make up their minds about a home within the first few minutes of entering the front door,” said Dianne Usher, senior manager, Royal LePage Real Estate Services. “As the real estate market begins to moderate in many markets across the country, the need to impress buyers becomes even more crucial. A combination of the right renovations with modern and tasteful décor is the best way to do that.”

Curb Appeal

How important is the exterior look of my property?

First impressions really do count. If the impact of your curb appeal is strong, people will want to see what is inside.
