Marketing your home
I am a listing specialist. I focus on my strengths and what I have really enjoyed about the past 22 years selling Whistler real estate. I have honed my negotiation skills. I am continuously adding to my marketing program to reach prospective buyers. I have long, reliable relationships with local experts to do small or large property updates if needed. Your home will be professional photography ready when it goes on the market to achieve the highest sales price in the shortest time frame with terms favourable to you.
I have a database of over 5,500 people and market your property proactively to my them. I refer new buyers to a qualified Realtor in my office. My area of expertise is marketing homes for sale and working with sellers to achieve their goals.
A list of marketing that I do on each property is added to the Multiple Listing Contract when we put your property on the market. I am always adding to what I offer. The current list is below.
