For a free-no obligation market analysis of your property just CLICK ON SELLING AND FILL OUT THE INFORMATION and I will email your market analysis directly to you. If you provide your phone # I can set up an appointment to see your property, and will provide you with a more comprehensive analysis as well as an estimated closing cost net sheet so you can see what you will come out with at the close of escrow. Remember, there is never any obligation when I provide you with my marketing analysis to list your property with me even if I come out to see the property. I just want to provide the best information to you and would always appreciate the opportunity to work for you if you feel it will be of benefit to you.
