So I recommend finding a well experienced appraiser that lives in the same neighborhood as the house you are selling (if possible). List about $5k above that price and then accept a few thousand less than the appraised value. Hire a professional cleaner weekly to insure the house is always fresh and clean. Hire a staging expert to help you declutter and give advise to show your house in the best light. Also make sure you have a lockbox for easy access by Realtors and allow showings at a moment's notice. Of course the landscaping needs to be fresh and tidy and also plant a few colorful flowers near the front door to give a great first impression.
Lastly, the appraisal is a value at that moment in time so if you do not get a contract within a month, you need an updated list of your competing properties and should also lower your price monthly until you get a contract.
If there is any way you can keep the property and use it as a rental for 3 years, that may be your best option in this "buyer's" market.
Good luck and I'm accepting a limited number of clients so call if you want my help.
All my best,

You should be able to pick up your local Real Estate Guide and see who is advertising in the Tampa area. Also look at the online presence a specific Realtor and or Company may have. Although I applaud you for looking for an agent that will be spending his or her large budget on you; big marketing money will not help you if your home is grossly over priced. A big marketing budget will not help you if you do not offer attractive incentives to Buyers. I hope you do not solely rely on the marketing budget for the sale of your home, please consider other factors such as an agents experience and track record.
