Our client lived in Seattle and had to relocate to San Francisco for their job. Our client found us on Zillow. She was looking for realtors who specialized in the area and saw that Maynard's team had a lot of sales in the Madison Valley, Central District, and Capitol Hill areas. They reached out to our team saying they needed to sell their family home. 

We had a few obstacles, as anyone would during the process of selling their home. But that didn't stop us from helping our clients reach their goals!

The market had slowed significantly and homes in the area were suddenly taking a very long time to sell. The home was on a busy arterial with heavy traffic during rush hour. Another challenge was that the property had dated paint colors which made the home appear dark regardless of the many windows. The colors were also not consistent with today's trend of modern, brighter rooms.  They were concerned they would have to paint the entire interior which would have been quite costly. Instead of a costly paint job, we made other recommendations: 1) Ensure the home was in turn-key condition; 2) we provided professional staging that was light and bright offsetting and complementing the darker colors; 3) we replaced older, darker carpet, which brightened up the entire space without a costly paint project; and 4) we also made a pre-inspection report available for buyers and ensured all notable findings were addressed.    

They originally bought this property in 2013 for $875,000! Just 5 years later, we sold the property for $1,666,000, which was $171,000 over asking price, selling it quickly for a great price while other homes continued to stay on the market.

We are so happy for our sellers! Here are their kind words about us:

"I am so thankful to have Maynard as our agent. Although the real estate market is cooling off this summer, Maynard helped us adjust the price based on it and sell this house in a good price in three weeks.  Maynard knows the local market very well and sets up a good strategy for marketing. He is also very responsive. Maynard is good at solving problems and guiding us through the process. I appreciate the excellent service that Maynard provided to us. I strongly recommend him."
