I love helping people make their dreams a reality!
I would love the opportunity to meet with you in person and to earn your business but for now I know you are likely doing your research online first. This is a major decision and you will want a Vancouver Island real estate agent who will work hard for you.
Part of my job as a trusted REALTOR® on the Island is to ensure qualified buyers see your property. Most serious buyers work with a real estate agent, so as a team of realty professionals we are able to match serious buyers with the right type of home. Unfortunately, some REALTORS® believe their job is done when you sign the listing agreement, whereas I know we are just at the beginning! I follow a step-by-step marketing program that will provide you with service that is both professional and courteous. It will constantly expose your home to qualified buyers. I use many different means of online marketing. My real estate website is available 24 hours a day from around the world, and this is just one method out of many I use. I am ever changing marketing in an ever changing world.
Why Hire Kari?
I understand the Victoria and surrounding area real estate market, and often the success of a sale is based on the simple law of supply and demand. Vancouver Island real estate is constantly fluctuating in price, just like any part of the economy. The real estate market and prices are determined by who is buying and selling at any given time. I deal with the Victoria and area real estate market every day therefore my knowledge of the market and its ups and downs helps me to promote your home effectively. I also work with a great team of professionals at Century 21 who are cooperative and who are also always there if we need another opinion. I am a team player and don’t hesitate to get ideas and recommendations from other Vancouver Island real estate agents if it is going to sell your property quicker and for a higher price.
I won’t pull a number out of thin air, and neither should you. Most sellers have an idea of what they would like for their house based on their knowledge of what their friend’s or neighbour’s houses are selling for, however I will show you the hard facts that will help you determine the best asking price in the Victoria and area real estate market. I am realistic and don’t want my sellers to overprice or undervalue. I will do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that will show you what similar properties in Victoria and the surrounding area have sold for in the most recent market as well as what your competition is and what they are pricing their homes at. This will help you make an informed decision about your listing price. You are in control and I am here to educate you and assist you in selling your home.
I will then give you pointers on how to enhance the marketability of your home. After your home is listed I will then provide you with regular progress reports and discuss comments I have received on your property when I call buyer’s agents to get their feedback. When an offer is received on your home I will help you with the negotiations and provide an estimate of your net sales proceeds prior to you accepting an offer. Upon accepting an offer on your home, I will assist you in all activities throughout the closing process and to help make the transaction as smooth as possible.
