Sign-up to Receive Sheila's Tips for Selling Real Estate

Sheila put a seller's home live on a Good Friday and over the holiday weekend she had over 100 showings with 31 offers by Monday morning. Their home ended up selling for $50,000 over the asking price!

How to sell your house in a week, like we did: 1. Hire Sheila. We interviewed several agents, and as I closed the door behind Sheila, I said to my husband, "This woman can sell our house," and I was right! 2. Do what she says: nothing more, nothing less. We would have spent more time and money preparing the house for sale, but Sheila knew what was vital and what was not. Why would you hire a professional and NOT do what they said? Sheila was always available via text or phone, very communicative about what was happening, and a really pleasant human being. We're happily in our new house two states away. I'll miss her!

When working with an agent, what is the standard commission?

Most sellers are very concerned about the commission and lose sight of the list to sell ratio. Isn’t it more important to know what you will net.  I will prepare a net sheet for you so that you can understand all of the costs involved with selling.
