The sellers were referred to me by their friend who had done business with me over the years. He told her “you two are a lot alike – you will get along great.” That statement ended up being very true!
Consultative Approach to Listing a San Jose Home for Sale
When a homeowner calls to discuss selling their San Jose home that triggers my consultation process. I ask a lot of questions. I see myself as a consultant first. When I understand what the seller’s goals are, and why they are selling, it helps me to create a plan and strategy for preparing the home, and the sellers, to put their home on the market. There is a lot involved in the process. There is far more involved than placing a sign in the yard and putting the property in the Multiple Listing Service. At least for me there is.
The sellers prepared their home for its photo shoot. A single property website was created with virtual tour of the property. Inspections were completed. All seller statutory disclosures were completed. Everything a buyer would need to make an informed decision was packaged together and made available for buyer agents to review and discuss with their clients prior to writing an offer.

This beautiful 4 bedroom – 2 bath room Santa Teresa home has a newly painted interior and new canned lighting throughout. The home is light and bright with lots of windows. The fireplace in the living room has a remote control gas starter.
The Master Bedroom has a sliding glass door leading to the backyard. The all new stunningly renovated Master Bathroom is complete with a skylight above the shower.
The lot size is over 11,000 square feet. There is a second detached garage completed with permits. Many referred to it as a “man cave”.
The sellers relocated out of the area and needed a 30 day rent-back while they waited for the new construction home to be completed.
All worked out according to plan and all contractual obligations and timelines were met. Sellers are very satisfied with my services and the buyers, who were represented by another agent, are very happy in their new home.
