About Me

We are a team of full-time, full-service real estate professionals. We help our clients with all aspects of the home buying/selling process:

  • We work with a network of contractors; from painters, handymen and landscapers, to plumbers and electricians, to help prepare your home for the market.
  • We can recommend inspectors for TISH or mechanical certifications.
  • We can recommend a home warranty company to cover you financially while you are listed, and to offer peace-of-mind to you and the buyer after the sale.
  • We will bring in our professional stager and photographers to make sure your home looks amazing when potential buyers are introduced to your house online.
  • We can recommend a title company, and help coordinate the sale once you have accepted an offer, and recommend a mover to help you move.
  • We’ll be there to help with any of your house-related needs in the future, whenever you need us.

LISTING/SELLING PHILOSOPHY:
Paying attention to all of the details helps our sellers’ homes sell faster, for a higher price, and with a smooth transaction.

  • We help maximize your sale price by counseling you on how to prepare your home for the market. We will discuss the most cost effective approach regarding clean-up, repairs and updates. If needed, we’ll provide you with contractor referrals to call on for help with getting the work done.
  • Accurate pricing is essential. We will provide the most accurate and honest assessment of current pricing and market conditions possible to give you a pricing recommendation to best position you against the competition. We will continually update our analysis to keep you ahead of the competition, as well.
  • To sell your house, you first need to attract people’s attention online. We bring in a professional stager and photographer to create photographs and a virtual tour that will dazzle potential buyers, and put you ahead of the competition.
  • The exterior photos are updated with the change of season so it always looks fresh.
  • We recognize that the internet is where 95%+ of buyers are doing their searching for homes. Edinarealty.com dominates real estate internet traffic in Minnesota, and maintains a policy of being the technology leader in the industry. That includes leading the market in technology, like our real estate search aps for today’s buyers, and our “Sell My Home” and “NetworkONE” programs for sellers.
  • Your listing will be syndicated on List-Hub to increase your exposure on other real estate websites, as well.
  • Our marketing materials are professionally designed to enhance prospective buyer’s impressions of your home.
  • We think outside the box, and look for the best ways to reach your target market.
  • Communication with our clients is a priority. You will be informed promptly of showing feedback, ongoing marketing efforts, changing market conditions, and any other relevant information.
  • We will fight to negotiate the best possible price and terms for the sale of your house.
  • Every detail will be followed up on during the pending period to ensure an on-time and successful closing.
  • We will follow-up after the sale, and be there whenever you need us in the future.
