OUR PROCESS EQUALS SOLD!!! WANT TO MAKE MORE $ WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME WITH NO HASSLE?
 
HIRE US TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY 

 

We got our seller's home in escrow in 4 days and SOLD for $27,000 over the asking price!
 
Let us tell you how. We worked with our seller to have repairs made, the entire home painted, professionally cleaned, and professionally staged so the property would make the best first impression and appeal to the largest possible audience. We also had our videographer produce an original video including aerial videography showcasing the home, location, and OB lifestyle to tell a story through incredible imagery. Utilizing the highest level of marketing, this home got maximum exposure to the market. We put this much extra effort into every home we sell to make our clients more money. Getting our clients home sold for top dollar in the quickest amount of time is the value we offer to them and this is what we will do for you. Who you choose to represent you matters!
