We had our home on the market for over 6 months, thinking as most people do, it will be no problem to sell our home in a very seller favorable San Jose market. We had some activity; however, we were not getting our home sold.
We were referred to Heather by a close realtor friend who spoke very highly of her.
From the moment we met Heather, we knew we had a perfect fit. She carefully listened to our end goals, set expectations and designed a strategy to sell our home. Heather had the right experience, contacts and tools to map out our plan to get our home sold. She delivered what she committed to which was selling our home with NO surprises!
She recommended a professional stager who created the style that was needed to make our home more appealing to the current market. The stager and Heather came to our home and made the required recommendations to make our home the most appealing for the house to sell. Heather provided professionals to do the work that we did not have the skill to do (chimney inspector, roof inspector, termite fumigation professionals). Heather’s referrals to professionals was invaluable for us to meet our timeline for getting our house on the market. Heather quickly created a calendar for us to make sure there was clarity on what we needed to do and what she and others would be doing, again a great tool to meet the agreed upon timeline to sell our home.
Heather is an expert marketer and has outstanding market intelligence. She strategically reached out to other brokers; she researched our market area. Heather listened to our input about what makes our neighborhood great, took pictures of area hot spots (golf course, park, a local deli) and included this information/pictures in a professional marketing video of our home.
I remember our first meeting. She said, “My plans are for you and I to prepare your house for sale in March and put it on the market in April 1 and plan to be in contract by the 3rd week in April with multiple offers.” That exact thing happened!
Heather’s detailed follow up with everyone involved with the sale of our home was outstanding. We never had to worry about any detail being missed.
Heathe'rs confidence and knowledge were critical elements for a successful home sale. In a very competitive market, Her program management, organization, referrals to service professionals, and negotiation skills were what made the sale and made Heather the right realtor.
