For The Buying & Selling Process.

Let us put our real estate selling and marketing experience to work for you. Here are a few of the benefits that we can provide to you to help your selling experience be an enjoyable one.

Selling Your Home?

When selling your home, we can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the Northern Arizona marketplace. The price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
We market your property to other real estate agents and the public. Often, we can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the saleability of your property. We act as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics requires REALTORS® to utilize these cooperative relationships when they benefit their clients.
We know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with our help, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. We will generally pre-screen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
We can help you objectively evaluate every buyer's proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing -- a lot of possible pitfalls. We can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.
We can help close the sale of your home. Between the initial sales agreement and closing (or settlement), questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing, or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. We are the best persons to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing (or settlement).

From Our Wonderful Clients
  • "Jean was not just our real estate agent but someone that I felt comfortable with and knew that I could rely on for her honesty and expertise. She genuinely cared about us and what we wanted in a new home. Buying a home for the first time can be quite scary but Jean was there for us every step of the way to explain the process and answer all of our questions. I feel very fortunate that we had Jean by our side, and all of the time she spent with us in finding the perfect home. Thank you Jean! :)" - Jessica R.
