How Long Have You Been A Realtor, And What Is Your Experience Outside Of Real Estate?

Experience should be a key factor when selecting a real estate agent, but experience as a Realtor should not be the only factor. Experience in organization, planning, marketing, and technology will assist in the buying and selling processes. This experience makes an agent better equipped to handle any issues that arise during a real estate transaction. Our team has provided solutions to over 10,000 families and to the real estate industry for 18 years. My expertise in marketing, estate management, and liquidations go hand in hand with home sales — guiding you through every step of the process, from organizing your home prior to listing, staging your property, liquidating personal belongings, and ultimately facilitating the sale of your home. Whether you are buying or selling, I’d love to help you. Feel free to contact me at [email protected]

What Is Your Area Of Expertise?

Some agents specialize in specific types of properties, such as luxury homes or investment properties, while others may focus on a particular geographic area, in estates or senior transitions. Understanding an agent’s expertise can help you determine if they are the right fit for your needs. I specialize in assisting individuals in all aspects of downsizing, moving, estate management, and home sales.

How Do You Help Sellers Market Their Property And How Do You Help Buyers Find Properties?

More than 90% of buyers begin their initial home search on the internet. We maximize the online presence of your property across multiple platforms, locally, nationally, and globally. We take if further and use social media (including Facebook, Facebook Lives, Reels, and Instagram), open houses, email marketing and SMS texting to help you achieve your goals.

What Sets You Apart From Other Real Estate Agents?

We provide a broader base of services called C.A.R.E.S. Our services include Consignment – selling furniture, home décor, artwork, lighting, jewelry, and even designer handbags through our consignment retail store – StillGoode Home Consignments. Auction – selling all remaining personal property via online auction – StillGoode Auctions. Auction items might include vehicles, tools, appliances, and any items that might not be sold in the consignment store. Real Estate – we offer additional layers beyond the traditional marketing that everyone else uses to get the message out about your house hitting the market. Staging – when you select the StillGoode Realty Team you receive the added benefit of an in-house stager that will provide a project plan on preparing your house for listing. In addition to the above services, StillGoode has project managers that will orchestrate the packing and moving of your items to our consignment store and auction facility.

How Do You Communicate With Your Clients?

Clear communication is critical when working with a real estate agent. Preferred communication style should be discussed and agreed upon from the first meeting, as no one solution fits all. Some agents prefer to communicate primarily by email or text, while others prefer phone calls or in-person meetings. Understanding an agent’s communication style can help you determine if you will be a good fit working together.
