Why Choose Laura as Your Realtor®?


THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE MARKET

Oftentimes, sellers will determine what agent they will list their home with based upon the listing price the agent offers.  Of course you want to sell your home for the most money possible, but most likely you also want to sell it quickly.  Pricing a home above what the  market value is does not ensure a higher sales price.  In fact, you may end up selling for less than you could have if the home had been priced correctly from day one.  A thorough study of the market, using an approach similar to what a home appraiser may use, as well as my extensive knowledge of our market helps me determine the current market value of your home.   My goal is to help you sell your home for top dollar, as quickly as possible. 

  OVER 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Experience, exposure, and expertise means a higher probability of selling your home at the best price, more quickly, and with minimal hassle.   Having worked in the Tri-Cities for over 20 years also gives me the advantage of close ties with fellow Realtors® that I can directly market your property to. 

EXTENSIVE EDUCATION AND TRAINING

I strive to maintain a sophisticated level of marketing insight.  Through my alliance with Coldwell Banker as well as several elite designations you can rest assured that I am up-to-date with all of the current marketing trends, market studies of what marketing efforts work and which don’t as well as any recent real estate law changes that may affect your home sale. 

   THE TOP SELLING REAL ESTATE AGENT IN THE TRI-CITIES AREA

On average, the typical agent has seven transactions per year.  In 2013, I has 127 transactions, 106 in 2012, 151 in 2011 and a record setting 233 in 2010.  What does this mean for you?  By having worked with so many clients and agents, I have an extensive reach when marketing.  My past clients are very often return clients, or refer other clients to me, widening my pool of potential buyers for your home.  I also have been fortunate to work with many of the agents in the Tri-Cities area and have developed strong relationships that help me effectively market your home.  

 AGGRESSIVE MARKETING PLAN

While selecting an agent, you’re going to be presented with a list of how and where a Realtor® is going to market your home.  Let’s face it, there are only so many websites, print publications and other resources available to any agent.  What makes my marketing plan  different is the way I use these resources.  You and I will discuss my marketing plan in detail and I will explain how I maximize these opportunities to our best advantage. 

 HIGHLY SKILLED SUPPORT TEAM

When marketing your property my priority is to network until a buyer is found.   Because of this, I am often out in the “field” instead of at my desk.  With this in mind, I have put together a support team consisting of my office manager, Robin, transaction coordinator, Camilla and my husband/ Realtor®, Wes Hodges.  Should you call my office and I am unavailable,  please feel free to chat with any one of these skilled members of my support team.
