A TIP FOR SELLERS

September 17, 2020 | By Chuck

I was recently looking at a home for myself and made an appointment to view a home that looked like a good fit. When we arrived the seller was very happy to show me around, he was very friendly and we were happy to have his playful dog there, and even discouraged the seller from putting the dog outside when he offered while we looked around. We enjoyed our visit and were grateful for the seller’s time and my daughter just loved the puppy!

When we finally had a moment to discuss the home in the front yard without the seller at our side, I realized that I did not recall the style of countertops and asked the other two that were with me. Neither my wife nor my daughter were able to indicate anything about the countertops. We were each amazed at how all three of us were unable to indicate one of the most focal points of the home-the kitchen counters in our visit within the last two minutes! Two of us are full-time Realtors and the other loves nothing more than to spend her time in a kitchen, yet we had not a clue of the color or style of them, although one of us was able to note the style of the cabinets.

It is possible (and even likely) that none of us have good memories, but it is surely a good reminder of the importance to get the sellers out of the buyer’s way regardless of either of their desires for the best interest of both the buyer AND the seller. We viewed this home and did not even realize it, but the seller cheated himself by his pleasantries and willingness to show us his beautiful home. This shows clearly the importance of sellers being absent from the home for all showings.

Kyla helped me find my perfect home. She was helpful, knowledgeable, and most importantly, she listened to my wants and needs! We searched until we found my perfect home. She stayed on top of the inspections and mortgage broker requirements until closing day. I could not have chosen a better  partner for my home search. Thank you, Kyla! You are a rock star and I could not be happier.

Chuck is just the best! So friendly, helpful and quite the funny guy 🙂 we loved him ?? and after all of our shenanigans, house to house to house to house……he was so patient and would even tell us if he thought we were in over our head. Sometimes we saw “a little fix here and there” but chuck  saw a headache! He’s not in it for a quick sale! That’s why, we’re going to buy another house! We purchased our house a little over a year ago but we’re ready to move on….I’ll be call you soon Chuck!

Words can never express how much I enjoyed and loved working with Kyla. For me, I never wanted to work with a realtor due to fears of them scamming me and just “talking a good game”. Kyla eased that fear the very first time we met. She was personable and she answered questions in a way that made  you actually answer your own questions in order for you to be the sole driver of the process while she copiloted and snatched the wheel when need be. Lol. She was available when needed most and very understanding when questions came up in the wee hours of the night. Would I recommend her, ABSOLUTELY!! Kyla thank you again for all that you’ve done for my family and I! YOU ROCK!

Kyla was excellent. She was very kind & understanding. The closing on my home was a mess! Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Kayla sat with me the entire day at the closing office waiting for a wire transfer. She made a difficult day much easier for me. The purchase of my new home was  swift & easy bc of her. She also made sure that I won the bid on my new home with a secret she uses, as there were 5 offers!! I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

Chuck was everything you could ask for in a realtor – smart, responsive, thorough and genuinely kind and honest. After meeting with other realtors, we were so happy we went with Chuck. He really listened to us, gave us sage advice and made the selling process a breeze. Doesn’t get better than that!
