Why Sellers Choose Me

The Benefits Of Working With Steve To Sell Your Home

Selling a home should be a pretty straightforward process and in the best of all worlds, it is. 
In the real world, however, challenges arise during all transactions.
This will not change.
What sets realtors apart are the solutions to the challenges.
Among real estate agents you will find a vast difference in the level of experience, expertise and commitment to quality of service.

Preperation Pays

I've been preparing to meet with you for many years.
My knowledge of my market and my experience through hundreds of transactions enables me to assess both your circumstances and your property expediently and efficiently. As a fourth generation Oak Park/River Forest resident raising my family here, I know and love my community and enjoy helping others make it their community too!

Before our first meeting I will prepare a preliminary market analysis.
That analysis is fine tuned after I view your home and talk with you.
Thereafter, it is my responsibility to prepare you and your home for the marketplace. I will advise you how to present your property to maximize its selling price. Some improvements are worth it, and some are not!
These efforts will have your home up for a shorter period of time on the market and more after sale dollars to you.

An Educated Seller is My Best Client
My goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions at each step of the selling process.  In addition to review of all documents, we are always available for questions. Each seller receives a detailed marketing and pricing plan.

Continuous Communication
My staff is always here for you...from initial planning for the sale of your home...through marketing, sale and settlement...  and there after whenever you need me for advice or counsel.
After each showing of your property I will contact the showing agent for feedback that is then shared with you by phone, e-mail and bi-weekly reports. Marketing reports and progress reports are part of my bi-weekly communication as well. 
 
Maximum Market Exposure when you list with Steve

I understand the importance of a marketing strategy and develop a custom plan for each listing. My first, and most valuable “target” market are the agents who work with me. Your home information and photos are entered into our Intranet immediately and in less than 24 hours into the regional Multi List System. As the property description is entered into my advertising program, the complete property information and photos are being uploaded onto about 20 other websites.

Expert Negotiation Skills
Each year I help hundreds of family members make happy, stress-free moves around town and around the world. My level of success is a testament to my negotiating skills. Just as importantly, my clients appreciate the better bottom line that I help them to achieve! 
 
“MY LISTINGS DON’T LAST”
