An “Independent Locally-Owned Brokerage”
Personally Serving Your Real Estate Needs
Real Estate Marketing & Services
My marketing sells homes and commercial properties. My marketing plan gives your listing wide and comprehensive exposure to ensure that it sells faster and for the highest price possible.
Although my plan works well for the majority of properties for sale in the northern Dutchess area, I tailor-fit a marketing plan specific to each property with each individual customer.
To contact me regarding a special marketing plan for your property, the value of your home, or to discuss Dutchess County real estate, in general, contact me at one of the numbers above.
Real Estate Marketing
I will arrange for a color photo and a description of your property to be placed on at least 3 web sites – including my own.
Benefits: Many buyers, who are without professional representation, surf the Web to initially find a property.
Real Estate Advertising
I will place an advertisement in the real estate magazine that best serves your area.
Benefits: Many potential buyers like to browse through real estate magazines when beginning their search.
I will mail flyers to all the neighbors on your block (with your permission).
Benefits: Your neighbors might know people who would like to live close to them. Even if they do not, often times, they will help us to ‘get the word out’
When, and if, it is appropriate, I will arrange for an Open House to be conducted by myself, or in conjunction with an associate of the office.
Benefits: Open Houses allow prospective buyers to tour your home while a professional realtor is there to answer questions and point out special features.
Property Feature Cards:
I will prepare and post feature cards that indicate special items and features of your home, business, or other property
Benefits: Prospective buyers generally spend only 2-10 minutes inside your home, or business. Feature cards will point out positive aspects of your listing that they might otherwise miss.
Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
I will promptly submit a complete and accurate data sheet to the Multiple Listing Service for quick appearance in the Multiple Listing Books and computer database system.
Benefits: All realtors, with qualified buyers, have access to the MLS. It is estimated that approximately 92% of all homes listed with realtors sell through the MLS.
Office Marketing Session
I will actively campaign your property to my associates and brokers.
Benefits: Teamwork is the “KEY” to success in our office. All associates and brokers in my office strive to sell in-house listings first and foremost.
Real Estate Yard Sign
With your permission, a “For Sale” sign will be placed on your property.
Benefits: A “For Sale” sign will notify neighbors and people who are simply driving by that your property is being offered for sale, along with telephone numbers to call and obtain more information.
Marketing to Other Offices
I will design and deliver professional flyers to other real estate offices doing a large volume of business in your area.
Benefits: Agents in these specific target areas will often have qualified buyers who are looking for properties just like yours.
I will follow-up with prospective buyers and/or their agents in order to obtain feedback on how your property showed, as well as their impressions regarding price, location and condition.
Benefits: By knowing what prospective buyers think, we can make any necessary changes or improvements that will enhance the appeal of your home and ensure a more expedient sale.

Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)
In estimating the fair market value of your property, I carefully consider all relevant factors. My Market Analysis uses the same variables that a professional fee appraiser utilizes: a combination of current market condition; square footage; locations; taxes; acreage; property conditions & features, along with comparable sales in the area.
Benefits: A CMA provides an accurate estimate of what buyers are currently willing to pay for your property in today’s market.
I will provide “tips” on how to enhance the appearance and salability of your home.
Benefits: “Curb appeal” leads buyers to your door; a fresh and tidy interior will help in selling your home.
After taking the listing, I will contact you on a regular basis to advise you with regard to:
- Reaction of potential buyers after showing
- New listings in the area
- Recent sales in the area
- General market conditions
- Loan market
- Comments from other realtors who show your property
I will always be available to you to answer your questions and field your concerns.
Benefits: Buying or selling a home or business can be stressful. I'm here to help. You will always be apprised of the progress of your home sale along with the current market changes.
Your Opinion Matters
I will candidly discuss any comments or suggestions you have which you believe would help us to sell your property.
Benefits: No one knows your property as you do. Your suggestions and input can help sell your house more quickly and at a higher price.
Monitor the Listing and Sales Activity
I will keep your informed of how the market is changing in your area.
Benefits: When you know your market, it is helpful in maintaining a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Screening Your Showings
I will arrange for all agents requesting to see your property to adhere to our office screening procedures prior to arriving at your home.
We will schedule every appointment to show your home with you directly. You will be apprised of the agent showing your home and timing, ensuring successful follow-up and security of your home.
Screening Prospective Buyers
I will screen all prospective buyers, determine their financial status and ability, thereby controlling insincere offers.
Benefits: We will identify buyers who are ready, willing, and able to purchase your home.
I will review, explain and assist you with all offers we receive on your property, as well as any counterproposals we receive or need to prepare.
Benefits: You will know exactly what the price and terms of the sale are – no surprises.
I will receive, explain and assist you with all correspondence between you and the buyers and/or their agents.
