Look: Keep it simple. Have your wife interview and select a Realtor in the U.S. Let the Realtor handle it for you. If it's necessary, your Realtor can suggest a lawyer.
Hope that helps.
It would be my pleasure to help your wife to sell her home in Englewood as I have lived in Englewood, Tenafly and Cresskill almost all of my life.
Please contact me if I can be of further assistance to you.
All the best!

Check with attorney but as a married couple who have lived in the house there is no way for you to avoid being available to sign for the sale of your home. There is no way to transfer the home to your spouse when you have both lived in it unless there is a divorce.
It is very easy for you to sell it even though you are in the Philippines. Your attorney can fed Ex you documents to sign once you are near closing. I just did a closing for some one that was overseas.
Contact me and I can help your wife sell the house even though you are overseas.
For one thing, transferring ownership in the USA often creates tax events, which is a heck of a complication. You should be consulting with your attorney and accountant on whether to sell the home, and how to go about it.
With modern communications, selling real estate from overseas is not really difficult or complicated.
All the best,
