We will follow up with you on client and realtor feedback from all showings of your home.
Organized Open Houses - We will hold open houses for your home when it is convenient with you and your schedule. When possible, we coordinate open houses with other Realtors who have homes for sale in your neighborhood to increase turnout and broaden your property's exposure.
