Just as buying a house includes the imagination to see it as a context for your future, selling one means providing that vision for others.

That’s why I put my artistic flare to work for clients who are selling their homes. I personally take on the processes of staging properties to maximize their appeal. Starting with a firm philosophy of never taking on a property I don’t like or believe in, I actively partner with clients to put their best feet forward and present their homes in the most favourable light.

Again, as with purchasing a home, the negotiations around the final transaction work best when they are approached with the professionalism, market knowledge and doggedness that I bring to the table. At the end of the day, my clients enjoy the confidence that comes from trusting that they have achieved the most from their sale that the current market will bear.
