The Grassroots Process
Site Visit (CMA)
First order of business is getting together at the property to ensure we have all the information on the home. This is usually 45 minutes and gives us a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other and everything you love about the home.
Home Selling Recommendations
Not sure whether to replace the tired flooring, paint, or to stage etc. We can make recommendations and connect you with the best professional contractors to get the most out of your home.
Once your home is show ready, the Marketing Lab starts to bubble with professional photos, filming videos, and measuring for 3D floorplans. Ideally this will take place one week prior to hitting the market. Then we input the data and start building all the material.
Our modern branding and eye catching “For Sale” sign is placed at your home. The whole neighborhood will be a buzz!
Once we have all the media ready to roll, we launch the listing on all our media outlets. The listing will be live on Matrix (for REALTORS only) right away and will take 24-48 hours to hit all the public sites.
After everything is online and we’ve tested all the links, we send you an email to preview. We then ask for your feedback or suggestions to make sure all info and spelling is correct… This is when it gets exciting!
Social Media Boost
Our strategy is time specific and cleverly laid out. Within 24 hours, your home should be going viral. This is the perfect opportunity for you to spread the word to your friends and family. The goal is to get your home to as many people that can see it online. The more the better!
Home Buying Offers

Now that we have a done deal, we need the lawyers to make it ocial. Bank documents and Title transfers are all done at this time. We have long standing relationships with established law firms we can refer you to, unless you have one you’ve worked with previously.
Now it’s time to start packing and preparing to move. Depending on the agreed upon possession date, we can help make sure you are ready and 100% prior to the possession date.
Once you are out and moved on, we will be there to do final walk through and collect all the keys from you. We will then facilitate a key hand o to the new buyers and make sure everyone is happy.
We did it!!! We have successfully helped you sell your home and made the process/experience something to remember. This was a full team effort and with every successful sale there is always a reason to celebrate.
This is another area we excel in!
Our Home Selling Competitive Market Analysis
Before putting a home on the market or listing with a real estate agent, savvy home sellers obtain a Comparative Market Analysis, also referred to in industry as a CMA.
Comparative Market Analysis reports contain the following data:
Active Listings, homes currently for sale. These listings matter only to the extent that “they agree” with your competition for buyers. They are not indicative of market value because sellers can ask whatever they want for their home. It doesn’t mean any of the prices are realistic.
Sold Listings, homes that have closed within the past six months. These are your comparable sales and what an appraiser will use when appraising your home for the buyer, along with the pending sales (which will likely have closed by the time your home is sold). Look long and hard at the comparable sales because those are your market value.
O-Market / Withdrawn / Canceled, these are properties that were taken o the market for a variety of reasons. Usually the reason homes are removed from the market is because the prices were too high.
