I highly recommend the Tom and Joanne team of residential
realtors to represent you if you are considering listing your home for sale.Â I was very satisfied with their services in
selling my home at 715 Boston Post Road in Weston earlier this year.
I contacted them in mid-April 2010 at the recommendation of
a friend who had also used their services. I first met with Tom to discuss my
interest in a quick, clean sale of my property which I had owned for nearly 30
years.Â I later met with Joanne and
completed the necessary paperwork for listing the property.Â Though I certainly loved my home, I knew that
it had some draw backs (on a busy road and an unusual floor plan) that might
make it more difficult to sell.
Together, we worked out a strategy to price the house
aggressively and merchandise it creatively.Â
Tom recommended Saturday and Sunday open houses on the weekend it was
first listed - with any and all bids to be held for presentation to me at 6:00
pm the following Monday evening.Â
They created very attractive marketing materials on the web
and in their handouts and worked hard to create a lot of excitement around the
early showings.Â Â Within just 7 days of
activating the listing, they presented me with 5 offers, 3 of which were above
the full asking price.Â Â Given such an
attractive set of buyers, I was able to select the best all around offer and
close on the house within the next 30 days.
It is important to note that I was traveling on business
almost non-stop during the listing, negotiating, and closing activities.Â Tom and Joanne managed everything very
smoothly â€“ from faxing and emailing necessary documents, scheduling conference
calls, overseeing inspections, and getting documents to my attorney while I was
Throughout the process, they were very professional and
often went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything went
smoothly and came to a successful conclusion right on schedule.
I recommend them to you and hope that your selling
experience will be as successful.
