In mid-September, I was finally ready to sell my house in Livermore. Unfortunately, it was after the summer buying rush when real estate sales seasonally slow. I was worried my house would either linger on the market for months or worse, would have to accept a lower selling price.
Thank goodness, my agent was Patti Smylie. The week after meeting Patti, I had to go on travel so I expected my trip would even further postpone getting my house on the market. I was pleasantly surprised that while I was gone, Patti had the home, pest and roof inspections completed, several repairs finished, yard cleared and the house cleaned. Fortunately, I listened to her recommendation of getting the house staged, because the house SOLD for ABOVE the listing price five days after the house was listed. I got three offers!
Patti not only knows the real estate business but she also put in a significant amount of “hands-on” time helping me prep my house for the sale. She not only presented me with data and statistics for picking the appropriate listing price but helped me improve the terms and conditions of my best offer.
Patti Smylie is very smart, personable, and dedicated to getting the best deals for her clients. She helped me sell my house for MORE than I thought I would get in a SHORTER period of time on the market. I highly recommend her services to anyone considering selling his or her home in the SF East Bay Area.
