You should interview a variety of agents. I wouldn't necessarily just pick one that has the most experience in your neighborhood (specifically). Who's going to expose your home to ENTIRE market, including here on Trulia and other sites, who's going to present the home in the best light, ect...
The other part of the equation is negotations. What's the track record of the agent? Are they really going to get you top dollar?
If you're like most sellers, you won't do these things, which is why you see so many homes on the market, still. There's buyer's out there buying homes but they are savvy and they're starting to interview agents too!
Would love to help you as well.

While I agree with most of the comments here, the first thing you need to do is get a competent real estate agent to come to your home and complete a thorough market analysis of your home and other homes currently on the market and those that have sold in the past three to six months in either Neely Farm or within no more than one mile of your house.
Find at least two agents that have the experience in the market to help you price your home properly and then move forward from there. What you will find is that you either are in a position to try and sell or you are not. If you are great, put it on the market as soon as possible. If the pricing is not conducive to selling at this point then it sounds like you have a great home to live in with numerous upgrades unitl the market is where you need it to be.
Make it a great day!
I can give you a free comprehensive appraisal. This report will show you long you may have to wait for a buyer and will give you an opinion of value. The only thiing that I ask is to consider me for the job of selling your home. I do recommend you interview at least 3 agents.
