I just had the best experience I ever had with a Realtor--even though I expected it!
I've had the pleasure of seeing Lisa and her team perform on over a dozen home sales where they represented friends of ours. At first, I was just observing the work Lisa and her team did for my friends. But after a while I started recommending her based on what I saw.
Lisa is the consummate professional as both a seller's and buyer's agent. They are not the same. For example, a seller's Realtor needs to have a team of professionals that can effect all kinds of home inspections, repairs, and home staging. They have to be really, really good at what they do and available at a moments notice. Not so with a buyer's agent. But a buyer's agent needs skills on how to match the buyer to the right home and know how to protect and represent the buyer in various ways that are different than a seller's agent. The skill set is different and yet, Lisa has an excellent team for representing buyers or sellers.
Whether you are buying or selling your home this is important to you. Oftentimes, the agent on the other side is not that skilled or experienced. When you have Lisa, she knows what is supposed to happen on both sides. I've seen her pull off sales and purchases that could have very easily fallen apart due to the other agent's inexperience or lack of skill.
My recent experience with Lisa and her team involved the sale of a single-family home that was owned by two-parties (joint tenants in common). In a volatile and quickly changing market, she had multiple strategies in mind that she explained well to all parties early on that allowed us to move quickly on the best one for the current market conditions when the time came to list the home. We ended with over a dozen families making offers and sold at over $100K above asking price, closing in under 30 days. As Lisa kept reminding us, every home sale has its own wrinkles along the way. Some of ours were built-in, such as the two-owner arrangement. Yet, every wrinkle was handled professionally, promptly, and correctly resulting in two very happy sellers and one very happy family that bought the home.
In past years I've worked in this industry helping Realtors grow their practice. So, I know what separates the good from the bad and the top Realtors from the good ones. Lisa's the best I know. That's why I recommend her to my friends and use her myself. She always comes through.
