First I would like to share that the sale of this property was not easy, or even typical. This house was held by my mother's Self-Directed IRA. After my mother passed away, my brother and I decided that selling the house was the best option for us. So this transaction was not a simple "Seller - Buyer" case. Gordana worked with me AND the company that managed the IRA to accomplish all of our goals. She was knowledgable about the nuances of working with the corporation and with me to make sure that all of the I's were dotted and the T's crossed. I don't know where I would have been without Gordana's kind help and services!
I am happy to give the most favorable review of my experience with Gordana. Prior to the listing, Gordana helped me to receive current information about the market in the area. This gave me the tools I needed to make an informed decision about list price. She helped to translate the listing agreement so that all of the legalities were understood by me who has limited experience in real estate. She couldn't have made it any easier.
She actively marketed the home, holding an open house and pursuing leads and other realtors to inform them about this listing. She showed the property and sought out feedback from the visiting realtors to make sure that I had the information I needed to make changes or hold my ground on the listing.
Because of her great advice as to the market in the area, we had a viable offer within two weeks of the listing. When this offer came in, she helped me to translate the contract. Because she had become so familiar with my needs and requirements, she helped me to identify the ways that it worked for me, and the ways that it did not. She advised ways that we could counter the offer and accomplish the goals of the buyer, all the while meeting mine.
She oversaw the transaction all the way to the closing, working closely with me and the title company to make sure that all of our needs were met. The closing went off without a hitch!
I would HIGHLY recommend Gordana to buyers and sellers. She provided information that was useful, and was careful not to give me false hopes. The information she gave was solid and accurate. Her delivery of information and advice was fact driven. She was not a salesperson who made pitches and promises, or other manipulations like a typical "hard sell salesperson". She gave facts and advice that made me feel both informed and confident in my decisions without feeling manipulated in any way. Very certainly, she had the hard sell technique, evidenced by our very short timeline, but I never felt ravaged by the sell. What a relief!
Ultimately, we closed our transaction and I feel no sellers remorse. I am certain that with Gordana's help, I was able to procure the sale price that was fair and profitable, a transaction that was seamless and accomplished the goals of our family.
gordana was wonderful and I am happy to tell you about it!
