Love it or list it?

We sell homes and we personally renovate homes. In fact, we’ve renovated a dozen homes in recent years. Because of this experience, we bring a truly holistic view to buying, staging and marketing a home. Every. Detail. Matters.

So when to sell? Every house has a buyer. Even with flaws, there is a buyer who will love it just like it is. You don't have to sell to a builder who will tear it down. In our market, risk is not as high as other areas. Buyers are extremely well-qualified and enjoy the process of expanding or improving homes themselves. The home you loved for 30 years is just waiting for the next owner, and we love playing matchmaker.

What do you love most about working in real estate right now?

The potential in older homes is awesome. Each neighborhood has its own aesthetic. We love highlighting the uniqueness and possibilities to our buyers. Funny thing is, we will meet with homeowners who are thinking of selling, talk through renovation ideas and boom – they decide they're going to stay and improve.
