JOHN and DIEDREWe first listed our home with another realtor - after 8 months of showings (and all the hassle that goes with them) we took our house off the market. Before we listed again, we interviewed several different realtors and chose Stephanie because she understood our neighborhood, was realistic about the market, and offered to personally show the home. We now understand that it's not impossible to sell in a down market but it is critical to have your home looking its absolute best and price it correctly from the start. On both those counts, Stephanie was outstanding - she helped us de-clutter and suggested inexpensive modifications that would help the house show well and also helped us start with an opening price that was both realistic and had enough cushion for us to negotiate. After two weeks of listing we had an offer for more than we expected to get and as a result were able to buy our dream home in the suburbs.
