Through all of the market’s ups and downs, there is always a real estate success story.
It started with a referral
Earlier this year, the photographer that I depend on to show my listings in their best light was preparing to work his magic. While at one of my listings, my photographer met Eva, a neighbor who mentioned that she was thinking about selling her home. Having worked with me for some time, he passed along the referral.
My new client
Following the successful closing of my listing, I knocked on Eva’s door. She was absolutely wonderful and shared the story of her home with me. The house was originally owned by her parents, who ultimately passed it along to her. Although Eva loved the home and her beautiful garden, being near her daughter and family in Tucson were now her priority. Eva wanted to sell.
Selling ‘AS IS’
As with many homeowners that have been in their home for a long period of time – and especially for those who are deeply rooted in their family home – it can be overwhelming. To simplify things, Eva wanted to sell in ‘AS IS’ condition but wasn’t sure if it was possible. I told her it would be possible, but we would need to price the home correctly. And of course, I assured Eva that I would do all I could to get her the highest price possible. Eva and I agreed on a price and I started to market the home in ‘Coming Soon’ status.
A happy ending
We had strong demand almost immediately and received multiple offers! I’m happy to report we sold the home for $25,000 over the asking price, and Eva didn’t have to make any repairs. It was a tremendous win for her, and Eva is now enjoying her new home in Tucson.
It was a double success story!
I feel like there are actually two parts to this success story. First, referrals truly are the highest compliment a Realtor can receive, and my photographer knows that myself and my team always go above and beyond for our clients. And I know he always does the same, so I send photography referrals to him also. Second, we were able to achieve Eva’s real estate goals by selling her home quickly and above asking price. Eva was a wonderful client and I’m so pleased that everything worked out well for her!
