Cannot recommend her highly enough!

Along with her professionalism, she was extremely knowledgeable throughout the sale process and timely in returning all of my texts, emails, and phone calls. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you, Petra!

Found us a home and sold our home in record time

Petra is great to work with and helped us find our perfect home and sell our current home at the same time. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.

Short sales are not fun as they usually come from a "bad thing that has happened". In my case, it was a lay-off. Petra made the process "not" bad at all. She always has a smile, she is upbeat and just a wonderful person to be around. She is professional and gets the job done.

Incredibly knowledgeable and professional!

Petra is everything I looked for in a realtor and, due to her work, I was able to sell my home within the time frame I wanted. I believe that would not have been possible without her.

Exceeded our Expectations

She makes every effort to walk her clients through the process of selling a home beginning with a detailed market analysis to price a home accordingly, to the photography and mostly importantly getting qualified buyers for showings.

She helped us sell our investment property within 10 days. She offered sound advice and recommendations throughout. We followed those recommendations and as a result, wound up selling this property for more than we expected. Petra provided personalized attention and service. We never felt like she had forgotten about us. We never felt disappointed during any step of the process. We hope to purchase another home soon, and we'll definitely enlist her services once again. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Update: Petra helped us purchase another home earlier this year. Once again, the service she provided was excellent. We recommend her to everyone.

You really made the process very easy for us – from making us aware of all the necessary paperwork to providing a drop box so we could easily upload the documents to you. We also appreciate the way you were on top of correspondence with the bank and other realtors.

Listened to us, worked with us, gave great advice!

Her photographs -- available online -- illustrated the house's best features in a style far superior to anyone other. The accompanying prose concisely stated salient information about the home and surrounding neighborhood, all key facts that a sincere buyer needs.

How we do it:

We are small and as such agile enough to change our marketing or improvements strategy at any point in this process, if needed. That’s how we ensure that our clients expectations are not just met, but exceeded. Our marketing savvy and flexibility allow us to cater to the ever-changing desires of the homebuyer and to quickly adopt new tools and technologies.

Our Process:

  • We start with an honest and open conversation about your needs, so that we can craft a plan that will be most likely to get your the results YOU want. Each situation is unique and we approach it as such.
  • We provide a home valuation report that is not sugarcoated – honest opinion that is backed up by hard core facts along with reality based pricing strategies.
  • We craft a plan of action together to get you the results you want. From there, we handle everything else in a way that causes minimal disruption to your life.
  • We use technology to stay in touch with you no matter where in the world you may be while your home is on the market. We make sure you can sign any paperwork you might need to digitally. And we communicate with you in a manner and on a timeline that YOU are comfortable with, whether by phone, email, text or over a cup of coffee in a local cafe.
  • We craft a marketing plan geared specifically towards getting your home sold.
  • We recommend any improvements that might help you achieve a higher price and shorter time on the market. Sometimes, it could be something as simple as a few minor landscaping touches. Or your property could benefit from staging and even remodeling. We’ll give you our unbiased opinion on what we think those improvements should be and help get them done.
  • We photograph your home, highlighting the very best features, as well as take multiple photos of the neighborhood, so that potential buyers can truly picture themselves living there.
  • We create a beautiful website dedicated to marketing your home that we will promote on social media, blog posts, and in print materials.
  • Throughout the process, you’ll receive royal customer service. We will keep you posted through every step of selling your home, so you know what’s going on.
