Case Studies

Seller in Nor Esta Manor

A single mother with two small boys needed to downsize. Her home had been on the market for six months with few showings and no offers. When her contract was up with the other broker, she asked us to represent her. We went in and readied her home for sale. Patching holes, painting, decluttering, rehanging artwork, and staging her home. She also had two huge dogs that became friendly with us, so if she was unable to come home and remove them for a showing, one of us could assist with them. Because the home had been on the market for such a long time, we used a specific marketing strategy, and the house sold in a “buyer’s market in just 45 days.” Getting her the best possible price in the least amount of days on market.

Seller in Glenwood Hills

The owner’s daughter came to us, anxious and concerned. An only child and alone, she lived in the Mid-west. She asked us to assist her father with the sale of the family home. She had just moved her mother in with her due to her failing mental condition. Having difficulty letting go, the father decided he would stay in the family home of forty years until it sold. He was experiencing the onset of early dementia, and due to the stress, his mental capacity was diminishing daily. Although the circumstances were challenging, our experienced and highly trained staff of Senior Real Estate Specialists navigated the transaction with expertise, compassion and understanding, and professionalism. Communicating sometimes several times a day with the daughter, checking in on her father, assisting him with selling or disposing of his personal effects and packing. During this period, the mother suffered a tragic and untimely passing. Once again, our team stepped in to assist the daughter in obtaining all the legal documents needed to continue with the transaction and helped get her father back east in time for the funeral. With our strategic marketing plan, the perfect buyer was found, and the home sold for the best price in the least amount of time on market. The transaction was seamless and as stress-free for the father and daughter as possible. The father moved in with his daughter, and both were able to move forward with their lives. Getting the best possible ROI their investment and relieved of the burden of this large home and property.

La Cueva Oeste

The owners of this home enjoyed living there for eighteen years. The husband had designed the house, and it had several buyer-specific features. Their daughter had graduated from college, married and move East. It was time to downsize. When it came time to put the home on the market, they were hesitant to make any cosmetic changes. I had found them their perfect retirement home. Once they had moved to their new home, I convinced them to proceed with an aggressive interior painting job, make necessary repairs, change the appliances to all one color, and install a new light fixture in the dining area. In this rapid, seller’s market, to save them time and money I virtually staged the home. I knew by pricing the property right and presenting the house in a more updated and modern feel that represented what today’s buyers are seeking; it would sell quickly. It sold in eleven days for the highest and best price!

Frankly, you’re parting with a special place that holds both emotional AND financial equity, so you’re right to want to approach this carefully.
