- The Internet:-Real Estate has changed dramatically.
   

A few years ago the Internet had a minimal impact, now it has a MAJOR impact on the Real Estate Market.
    Your Realtor must be pro-active in this arena !

The 2011 profile of Home Buyers and Sellers completed by the National Association of Realtors showed 88% of buyers use the internet to search for a home and it has only grown since then.
Having a SUBSTANITIAL internet presence is a MUST in the Real Estate market of today!

  - Redding-Real-Estate.com
     

This TOP Performing web site is at, or near the top in search results for Google, Yahoo and Bing internet search engines for the most common search terms plus a large amount of "long tail" search terms.  Google, Yahoo and Bing are the three most powerful internet search engines in the world and Redding-Real-Estate.com is a prominent web site they trust and rank very well.

Featured Homes:
Properties listed by me will be prominently displayed on the front page as a "Featured Home".
      Redding-Real-Estate.com includes a large amount of local information, scenic pictures, MLS search capabilities, and area links. Neighborhoods with pictures and general pricing information are also prominent. This is a big help when people are looking to buy a home and why visitors keep coming back.
 
  - Realtor.com
      The largest Real Estate web site in the world is an important part of the marketing of your home.  The information is supplied via the MLS system and I can customize what is shown to best showcase your property.  Your Home will be on Realtor.com and it will be linked to ........ you guessed it,
-Redding-Real-Estate.com, where your home will also be featured.
 
  - One Redding.com
      A growing web site that has it's own fan base and has similar information to Redding-Real-Estate.com while directing some visitors right here to this page and similar ones.
 
  - Tierra Oaks.com
     

A web site that directs its focus on the TIerra Oaks Golf Community in Redding.  Information there looks into the neighborhood, the Golf Course as well as directs visitors to One Redding and Redding-Real-Estate for their Real Estate interests.  

 
  - Golf Redding.com
      A partnership is in place with Golf Redding.com which is the premier site for and golf in our region of Northern CA.  On every page of Golf Redding.com there is a link to ........ you guessed it,
     

Redding-Real-Estate.com, right where your home will be featured, as you know very few golfers live on a golf course and they will be seeing your home here very prominently.

Your Home being seen by more Buyers, that's the Goal, and that's the Result !!

- Multiple Listing Service
    This is a very important aspect of marketing your home. I provide for your exposure to all the agents and brokers in the local board of Realtors who will work with us as a group to get your home sold!
    The MLS is the source for the Realtor.com information and much of the internet based information. How your home is portrayed here is important, pictures that compliment your home are paramount !
    -Your home can, and will be overlooked if it is not presented well !
- Print Advertising
    While this is becoming a relic for the Real Estate industry it isn't dead yet.  I will place your home in local Real Estate publications.  The sources that still have some reasonable impact include the local paper, the Record Searchlight, and a monthly magazine style publication called The Real Estate Book.
- Negotiations
   

Time for a bit of fun, and stress. I will work in your best interest in getting the MOST amount possible.

- Escrow
    I have to admit a fault: I'm sometimes obsessed with details. The good news it really helps in the escrow process. Getting things done on time is important, a visit or a couple extra phone calls can make a difference.
- Selecting a Realtor
   

Looking for a Realtor to help you sell your Real Estate can be difficult for you, and some things have changed that you may not be aware of.  We all occasionally have choices to make that are a bit uncomfortable (me in this case) and I don't want the following to be anything other than informational.  The reason for this is that many people are unaware of how some Realtors have changed how they go about this process.

I prefer to provide personal service from beginning to end so that you can be represented by an experienced Realtor throughout the entire transaction, the same Realtor you started with.

There are many options available to you, and it is of course your choice on how to move forward.  In recent years the real estate "teams" have gained notoriety with their very personable Car Sales style "Closer" meeting with you initially.  They try to convince you that their "shuffle" system is best for you, I call it that because if you were to list with them you will often be shuffled from assistant to assistant throughout the transaction.

These "teams" sometimes include 5, 10, or more people working under one individuals name.   In past years when a real estate office had multiple Realtors working from within the office they were identified by their own names and helped people with their real estate goals personally.  Fortunately this is still the majority of how the marketplace works.  I am happy to say I have had an increasing number of clients who are becoming aware of these differences and choosing individual representation.

If choosing a team is right for you I understand and respect your choice.

Ultimately your Realtor is someone who you should be able to trust, who you can work with, and who can get the job done while working with your best interests at heart.  I hope that you will allow me to help you throughout this process.

- The Value of your Home
   

You should choose someone who gives you a realistic dollar value the market place will support.  Some will improperly inflate that number to get your listing and then come back later to get it reduced.  Look at this chart regarding on how long it takes to get a home sold.

Although it is difficult, try to be objective by reviewing the comparable sales. Assess your time frame, and motivation levels.

Choosing a Realtor solely on the value they tell you can lead to you being mislead, this has happened more often than you would believe.

WE will figure it out together based on the marketplace and the information I have available.

We will get it done !

 

Let's get going !

  We will sell your home with confidence, and integrity. I'll represent you honorably and you will come to know that ethics is an important consideration for me.  
  So why choose me? First and most important, I know I can offer you an unique experience with professionalism, honesty, and enthusiasm that is unbeatable! Meeting my client's needs and reaching their goals is what this is all about.
