Avoiding the #1 Cause of Seller Stress

Do you know what causes the most common source of stress when selling your home? Is it scheduling buyer viewings? Is it the length of time it takes for your property to sell? Is it an offer that falls through?

Those things can, indeed, cause some worry! But, the number one source of stress is actually simple to avoid. It’s not understanding the process. 

Even if you’re no stranger to moving, you should review the process involved in selling your current home before you list it. If you don’t, you might end up exposing yourself to anxiety that could have been easily avoided.

Say, for example, you’re concerned that your home has been listed for too long. It’s been a week and no good offers have come in. Well, if you knew, in advance, how long a home like yours typically takes to sell, then you probably would know not to worry.

It’s important that you start the process by understanding what to expect. What happens when your home is first listed? How are buyers scheduled to see your property? What happens when an offer comes in?

That’s why we will always review the selling process before you list and make sure all your questions are answered.

CONGRATULATIONS to my Buyers who have been looking for over a year for the perfect place. They knew what they wanted and when this one came on the market we were 1st on the scene at 9am & got our offer in QUICK.

I’m SO happy for them and THEY are happy.

I love this “Job”. 🙂

December 2020 Newsletter

Thank you for opening my monthly email and allowing me to stay in touch and share business and personal information with you throughout the year.

Going into our last month of 2020, I want to express my gratitude to the individuals and families who trusted me this year to help them with buying, selling and many of them, BOTH buying and selling at the same time!

Buying and selling a home is an emotional & detailed experience.  It’s deeper than just sticking a sign in the yard and/or driving around looking at houses. My gratitude for my clients that trusted me to advise them properly, walk with them through the process, negotiate and be their advocate from beginning to end (and beyond the closing) leaves me with a loss of words to explain how honored I feel.


Our relationship does not end after the closing. Please know that I am here for my clients to help them in ANY way at ANY time. Even if you’re not a client of mine (yet 😉), please utilize my professional training, experience and expertise any time you have a real estate question. If you have questions about the market in general or about a particular neighborhood; or you’re considering making some home improvements and wonder what the return on your investment may be – I’d be thrilled to hear from you.

Many say, “Let me know how I can help”, but I MEAN it.  Let me be a resource for you!  I’m happy to do it!

On a personal note, my kids are home e-learning so I’m seeing a lot of them these days. Thankfully they are old enough now that I can still be out with clients and attend meetings and training when offered in person but I am enjoying the time we’re all home. I’ve always been a “go-getter” and the kids have always been involved in many activities so this “slower” pace has been nice most of the time. Can you tell I’m a glass half full person? 😊

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you! I wish you and your family a safe and healthy Holiday season.

All my best,
