Helen has been my realtor for about 12 years and she is a real professional. Most recently she helped me sell a rental house that previously been my residence and had been in my family for almost 40 years.
We started about six months before our target listing date. She went through the house and gave me a very good idea of what things would need to be fixed/replaced and what items could be left alone. She really knows what things buyers focus on when looking at a property. Without her advice, I would have spent thousands of dollars replacing things unnecessarily.
Helen was also able to me the names of some excellent contractors to paint, install tile, make minor repairs, install new appliances, clean and do some light landscaping. I thought I was going to get a bill for double what I actually paid.
When it was time to list, this is where Helen really shined. She did a fantastic job staging the house. She placed items all around the house to give the place a homey feel She also had a photographer take some great pictures. The online listing looked excellent and captured all of the strong points of the house.
In the end, Helen sold my house in a day. It was a pleasure working with her. I would highly recommend her and will continue to use her for all my real estate needs.
