Find the agent who has a very aggressive marketing campaign geared for historic homes. (Ex: Advertise at Thisoldhouse.com and the periodical of the same name, the local historic clubs/societies, etc.). The reason that any house sells is because the right person saw it. Advertise, Advertise, Advertise!
How is the sale of your home coming along? Has it sold? Looking at the photos, it is a very nice home.
Were you able to find an agent that is knowledgeable about historic homes? I am quite familiar with that area. There are very many historic homes there and it is a very nice area.
If you need assistance, contact me. I will be happy to assist you.
Good luck in your future endeavors

I would love to take a look at it for you. I am a specialist in your area and have experience in historic homes and homes of value.

I agree, you need an agent and real estate office that has knowledge and experience in selling historic homes.
Our office is known for the sale of farms and country properties for over 30 years. We are located on the Berks/Lehigh/Montgomery Co. line. I have listed and sold numerous historic farm homes, in fact I have one currently listed that is stucco over stone on 14 acres. Because you do not have enough acreage to attract someone with horses, marketing needs to be directed to the homes amenities and character. I would be happy to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me.
