Until we meet, here are some things to consider:

How much is your home worth?  Pricing a home is part art and part science.  It's a combination marrying analytical statistics to emotional appeal and market movement.  If you're a serious seller, you do not want to overprice your home or try to "test the market."  Not today.  The Gardner Team can show you the best marketability and pricing strategy that's working in today’s market. 

Realize that a good real estate agent can make or break your deal.  You want to hire the best real estate agent you can find, which means hiring an agent who will put your interests first, above his or her own. 

All agents are different.  They charge varying rates, specialize in certain areas, have their own marketing style and possess particular skill sets... All of which are examples of what sets them apart.  There are many things that set us apart, clearly reflected in the outcome of the results we continue to deliver to our clients.  Contact Jason to discover why working with the area’s top Realtor has its many advantages.
