How We Helped Jason Find a Home


Jason - Home Buyer: "It was good, he was always ready to show us whatever house we wanted. We looked at about 30 different houses and he was always right there just to give his expertise...just his honesty on what we were looking for. If we went to a house, he'd keep us on track of the things we wanted and if the house we were looking at didn't have it. He was straightforward and honest with trying to keep us on track."

Like most markets in the country, the Colorado Springs market has been pretty hot for awhile now. Prices and sales are up, but inventory and interest rates remain low. Because of this, most homes on the market sell pretty quickly. What if your house wasn’t one of those? What if it became an expired listing?

There are a few small adjustments you can make to help you sell it.

When a home doesn’t sell, the homeowner usually does one of three things. They either re-list with the same agent to get the same results, or they may decide to either rent it or keep it. If your home won’t sell and it’s frustrating you, you need to bring me out to take a look at it. Many times, all it takes is a small adjustment to the approach of selling it.

What happens if you’re a seller in a hot market but your house fails to sell? That’s where we come in as experts in listings that expire.

I specialize in helping homeowners sell homes that didn’t sell the first time. If you check out the video above, you can see some examples of houses that didn’t sell.

One sat on the market for 59 days with no offers. The photos of the home were a bit dark and made the rooms looks small. So, we came in with our professional photographer and also made some staging adjustments. The house, in turn, sold in four days for more than $2,000 above list price.

Even in the best markets, some homes just don’t sell. So let my team of experts take a look at it and help you go from a ‘shown’ to a ‘sold.’

If you have any questions, give us a call or send us an email soon. We look forward to helping you!

How We Helped Shirley Sell Her House



Shirley - House Seller "Excellent. He was always there for us, called us, communicated in the evening whenever necessary. Took care of us great. Just the mannerism where he would, we initially sat down with him to talk about that he really wasn't pressured, he was just so relaxed and calm. "Yes, if this is what you want to do, would this time-frame work for you, here would be your possible next step, how do you feel about that?" You know, just very informative but not pushy, do you know what I mean? Sometimes, when we had talked to a couple other Realtors, you almost felt like you were being pounced on so to speak. He was there to be serious about the business but no pressure. "Will this work for you?" "What do you think? "I'm here for you" kind of guy. "If you want me but hey."
