Stace was awesome! We had tried to sell our home the year before and had NO OFFERS at all. Then we tried going FSBO and weren’t able to get firm offers that stuck, so we met with Stace and Jackie and they gave us realistic input about our home. A huge draw was that Stace brought in an interior designer to give me very specific input on what was worth doing or not bothering with to prep our house for showing—not just “update the hardware in the kitchen” but “here is the store and item number for the hardware you should get for the kitchen.” Everything on the list was from Home Depot, Target or Ikea, that's it! I had a to-do list and shopping list that was simplified, specific, and geared to get the most effect for the least effort and expense. This perk, along with her genuine, no-hard-sell, sincerely friendly demeanor, is why we chose to sign with her over four other realtors we had met with. During pictures, Stace and Jackie worked for hours to move things around and stage with an amazing eye for detail. The year before we’d spent thousands making recommended improvements and got no offers in six months. With Stace, the visual appeal of the house improved dramatically and even though we went on the market late in the spring season, we had competing offers after the first open house. When the first accepted offer fell through, she went to the other potential buyers immediately and got us under contract with them within 24 hours. But that was just the start—Stace was extremely helpful, proactive and responsive the whole time we were under contract. She was in frequent communication with us, our lawyer, the buyer’s realtor, communicated with the town to take care of scheduling CO inspections, etc. She took care of being at the house for appraisals and CO inspections so I could just take my kids out and not worry about it. She gave us her take after the inspection and helped us stay calm about the whole process—and as a result the final purchase price was over asking and $40K higher than other realtors had predicted we’d get for the house! She ran the process smoothly and kept everything together and moving, she was reassuring, and no matter what we bugged her with she was pleasant and calm and ALWAYS RESPONDED! I recommend her to everyone!
