As a Realtor, I can be a resource for you in many ways.
When you are selling your home, I can help in preparing comparative market analyses that assist you in determining the selling price for your house. Then when it's time to bring your house to market and you've readied it for showing so that it's in just the right condition, I prepare and implement a marketing plan so that it is made available to the widest possible audience. You can have a great house that's priced correctly but if no one knows about it, it’s counter-productive and time-wasting. One of the main reasons why I am at Alain Pinel is that we specialize in marketing residential real estate, using print, the Internet and in-person advertising such as at Open Houses. Statistically, we are one of the most successful agencies in the country and on an agent-by-agent basis, we are the best. Our print advertising has tremendous impact and our Internet presence is innovative and broad in its appeal. Go to www.apr-carmel.com and see for yourself. We are the largest privately-owned real estate agency in the US and 6th overall and there is a reason for that.
When you are buying, I can assist in determining what you can afford so we can maximize your purchase. Then we can begin the search in earnest, looking at houses in the areas that you like (location, location, location) and that are best suited to your needs in terms of size, style, features, and topography and all the things that will make that house special for you. A unique feature of the Peninsula is that it is a heterogeneous market with a wide range of prices and styles from block-to-block, to neighborhood-to-neighborhood to city-to-city and, most critically, from house-to-house. Carmel-by-the-Sea is the embodiment of that type of market. It makes real estate endlessly fascinating and-in a good way- complicated. Knowing the local market is so critically important for me so I can deal effectively on your behalf.
I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you with your real estate needs whether you are buying or selling, or even just looking!
