Testimonial from a happy client!

“Rachel recently guided us through the process of buying our first home, and her expertise, commitment, and tenacity were invaluable from start to finish. We came into this process with a lot of questions and very little knowledge of what to expect along the way; from our first meeting with Rachel, she provided us with a lot of clarity and communicated to us what each step of our home search and purchase would look like. With each house that we looked at, Rachel helped us not only define our priorities more clearly but also identify areas where we were willing to be more flexible. She was able to do this without ever being pushy or pressuring us into making decisions; she intuitively knows how to advise and guide while respecting buyers’ opinions and feelings.
Throughout our home purchasing experience, I have always felt confident in Rachel’s abilities and trusted her feedback. In addition to being first time homebuyers, we were looking for home with a budget that was at a competitive price point at a time when the housing market was not very favorable to buyers. Before purchasing what is now our home, we began the process of purchasing another house, which we had to back out of at the inspection stage. This was incredibly stressful and disappointing, but Rachel provided us with sound advice along with kind encouragement as we restarted the search process.
After this, Rachel helped us navigate the complexities of purchasing a foreclosure, which wasno small feat. She advocated for us to ensure that we were getting a fair deal and to get repairs done in the house before we moved in, and she communicated with us daily to make sure we were informed of every development. Without her, I truly don’t know how we would have made it to the home buying finish line.
Beyond her extensive knowledge and formidable skills, Rachel is generous, funny, and kind. Her positive spirit and determined attitude make her a pleasure to work with, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Selling your home at the peak price

home-167734__340

Here are three tips for selling your home for the best possible price in the shortest amount of time.

Be ready to sell. Prepare your home physically – and yourself mentally – to make the move. Have your home clean and ready for showings to boost the appeal and perceived value. Buyers want to see that a home is well-maintained and cared for. Make sure you’re emotionally ready to part with your home and embrace your move because the sale could happen at any time.

Be flexible. The timing of the sale and scheduling of the closing may not be at the most convenient times. Try to remain flexible and understand that your normal schedule may have to adjust. Be ready to spring into action and move on short notice.

Engage a real estate agent early. The third and most important step is to work with a real estate agent you trust.  To determine the best time to list your home, consult with your local agent. A knowledgeable professional will assist you in every possible way.

Client Review from Rachel P.

Thank you Rachel for taking the time to write this testimonial! i think your the best!

Rachel is nothing less than amazing. We sold our home during an emotionally difficult situation and she was immediately there to help and reassure us every step of the way. What seemed to start as a pretty cut and dry situation turned very difficult, she was patient with my weekly (probably more) melt downs, and she fought for our best interest. When dealing with people who were anything but professional she always stayed classy. I will definitely be calling Rachel the next time I need a realtor. Her years of experience and passion for people makes her the best around.

FALL CLEANING! WHAT A CONCEPT! TAKE A LOOK!

 

You have all heard of spring cleaning, but what about Fall cleaning? Here are a few goods ideas to get you ready for the fall and winder months. Fall is here!

1. Clean and Reverse Fans. Your ceiling fans have been hard at work all summer so they may have gathered more dust than you realize. Turn your fans off, and clean the sides, tops and bottoms of the blades. Reverse your fans so the blades send air upward to disrupt the warm air that collects near the ceiling and disperse it downward. This is particularly effective in rooms with high or vaulted ceilings and rooms with stoves or fireplaces.

2. Clean Window Treatments. Use a cordless hand-held vacuum to remove dust from hanging window treatments. If you have hanging curtains, take them down for a gentle launder. While they’re down, clean your windows and sills thoroughly.

3. Vacuum and Clean Furniture. Vacuum your upholstered furniture, and spot-clean the big stains as needed. Always test an inconspicuous area of your couch before applying any cleaning agent to a main area.

4. Seal the Air Leaks. Check your windows and doors for damaged weather stripping and cracked caulking, and make repairs as needed.

IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!
