EXPECT MORE FROM YOUR SELLING EXPERIENCE
We are taking a fresh approach to selling properties by making client service our first priority and ensuring you get the best experience possible.
WE WORK HARD TO RISE ABOVE THE STATUS QUO
We love to hear that our listing presentation stands out from the crowd. We take the time to ask our clients what their goals are, how they wish to be served, and what they hope to achieve with enlisting our help. Knowing exactly what your needs and wants are allows us to tailor the selling experience to you. No two clients and properties are the same, so having one approach just won’t do. It takes a lot more than a lawn sign to sell a house, so don’t settle for less.
We’ll also help you stage your home with little or no cost to you. This is where we shine! The Parkhill Team has a collection of classic and complementary homegoods to stage homes to success for as little as $0 to the client. See what keen eyes and savvy spenders can do to ensure your listing is showed to it’s full potential. It’s what sets us apart. See our blog for more examples of our complementary or ultra low-cost home staging – exclusively for our listing clients.
Total honesty, professionalism, integrity and the unvarnished truth. That’s what you can expect from the Parkhill Team of Realtors.
MAKE YOUR HOME THE BUYER’S FIRST CHOICE
Asking a Buyer to use their imagination rarely works. Most buyers don’t see a home’s potential when it’s tailored to the family who lives there. Buyers don’t imagine, they feel. What they feel when they step in will decide if they buy the house, or move on to the next one. It’s your listing agent’s job to craft that positive feeling for the buyer, ensuring they can picture themselves in your home. This job is made easier without clutter to distract them. Staging your home doesn’t have to mean taking your possessions out and moving showroom furniture in. It’s crafting a feeling – creating an inviting space where people immediately have positive reaction, and not one they want to let go.

WE HAVE YOUR BACK 100%
We are in the service business and a big part of what we do day-to-day is craft memorable client experiences. If you aren’t happy, neither are we. It’s not complicated. It’s good, old-fashioned customer service.
The process of preparing your home for sale can seem daunting, but it’s easy with us on your side. Our goal is to make buyers fall in love with your home. We will work with you on your homes presentation because we know what buyers like to see.
WHAT IS MY PROPERTY WORTH?
HOW DOES YOUR LISTING STACK UP?
Buyers will likely be viewing every home in their price range either online or in person before making a decision to buy. Look at your home through buyers eyes. You’re used to your surroundings and overlook awkward things about how you live. Stage every room for its natural purpose, and ask friends to walk through and pretend they’re a buyer. They and your agent will point out the things you take for granted. Commit to not smoking or cooking odorous foods in the home while listed. Remove as much pet evidence as you can, especially smells! Your listing agent should be prepared to show you details of every other home for sale in your category and give an honest opinion on how you stack up to the competition. A fair price is the best marketing your home can have.
MARIE KONDO YOUR STUFF
Before a buyer will view your property as their future home, you have to depersonalize and clear the space. We will walk you through what it will take to get your home ready to show, such as painting, cleaning, organizing and staging, but the sorting of your possessions is up to you. Clear out closets and donate items you don’t use. Buyers will open cupboards and judge you. Consider packing up and moving off site any seasonal or unnecessary items that will only be distracting, or make your home appear to be busting at the seams. If you don’t need it here for the next few weeks, move it out. You’ll pack soon anyway.
ALL THE SMALL THINGS
We know you’re busy, but a little preparation goes a long way. That’s why we will work with you to see your home is presented the best it can be with the time and budget you have. Everyone has a few tasks they’ve been meaning to take care of. If you can’t complete them yourself, we can spearhead co-ordinating a crew to help you prepare your home. A handyman hired for one day can give the impression that your home has been well maintained over years. A fresh coat of paint can modernize a room. Let’s roll up our sleeves and tackle this.
INNER BEAUTY ISN’T ENOUGH THIS TIME
More than once we’ve brought buyers to a property they were interested in, only to have them turn around and leave instead. Street view isn’t just for google. How a home looks from the outside – the porch, the siding, the door, walkway, gardens and mailbox – will set the tone for how a buyer feels about your home. First impressions are lasting impressions. Make the entrance inviting and as attractive on the outside as it is on the inside. Mowed grass, cleared walkways, inviting flowers or gardens, a painted door and a cozy chair can make the house feel like a home. And don’t forget to clean windows inside and out.
We will consult with you on how we can best present your home. Sometimes its as simple as putting beds in the bedrooms and re-arranging what you already have, with items we bring in to pull it all together. Once we arrange items in the home making it livable for you, and inviting for buyers, it should look the same way for every showing and open house. It may not be fun to be out of the house for a week but it will sell faster, and for more money. Once we have it looking perfect make a promise not to use the new fluffy towels and keep dirty dishes out of the sink. It’s worth it, and essential to you getting top dollar. If you need a night off, that’s okay too. No matter what, we want you to have a great experience selling your home.
We believe you deserve our best, and we’re prepared to make some promises. It’s our hope that we will set the new standard of what’s expected of a Realtor, and we want to ensure you can hold us accountable if we ever leave you feeling like you didn’t get the service we promised. Here’s our commitment to you…
