Seller's Guide

Selling a home can be an exciting, and potentially overwhelming, time in your life. We understand that there are many factors in this life-changing event. Our goal is provide a high level of professional and personal service to ensure that you have a smooth and stress-free home selling experience. Who you work with matters. Most people think real estate agents are basically all the same. Unfortunately, they are often right, and we find that unacceptable. After over 30 years of experience, we have developed a proprietary system that consistently delivers the best possible results for our clients.

Most real estate agents are still using old traditional methods of selling homes. Although this strategy can sometimes work, sellers will miss out on maximum market exposure because they are not receiving a targeted and comprehensive marketing plan. Therefore, they are not getting the best buyer and possible outcome.

In 2005, Mary reverse-engineered the home sale process to address the common problems that occur in the sale of a home by creating The Ultimate Home Selling Success System™.  This system is designed to increase demand for your home, attract more buyers and generate a higher sales price.

The Ultimate Home Selling Success System™ creates a ‘Seller’s Market’ regardless of market conditions which gives sellers their choice of buyers, price, and terms. Our exclusive home selling process removes the normal buyer contingencies including the problematic home inspection contingency. We have been successfully selling our listings without a buyer’s home inspection contingency since 2005. This strategy has resulted in our listings selling in a shorter time frame, with a higher sales price and often with multiple offers. The extra profit we create for our clients can truly be life changing!

In our exclusive guide, Preparing for a Successful Sale, we will walk you through our process and explain how a top-performing real estate broker can produce the results you are looking for.

Downsizing Strategies

Many factors motivate sellers to consider downsizing – the kids have left home, you are retired, you want to relax more and not spend your weekends taking care of the yard, or you want to travel and not worry about your home being secure while you are gone.

When looking for a real estate professional that will respond to your specific, 55+ real estate needs, look for a Seniors Real Estate Specialist®. As an SRES ® Designee, Mary Lee has received extensive education on topics such as tax laws, probate, estate planning, equity conversion strategies, and can offer you relevant information on current market trends as well as valuable resources regarding real estate transactions. By partnering with an SRES® like Mary during your lifestyle transition, you’ll gain the help and experience of a REALTOR® specialized in meeting the needs of home buyers and sellers who are 55+.

WHAT QUALITIES MAKE AN SRES® DIFFERENT? An SRES® will support you in a multitude of ways:

  • With knowledge, experience and compassion to navigate issues for those 55+.
  • Suggesting housing alternatives, including ones that may allow an aging parent to remain in the home instead of selling it.
  • Through a no-pressure approach to the transaction and a strong service orientation.
  • Taking the time needed to make a client feel comfortable with the complex selling process.
  • Understanding the emotional demands a sale can make on a client that is 55+ and doing our best to minimize them.
  • Interacting easily with all generations, including adult children and caretakers.
  • Offering a wide network of other senior-focused professionals who can assist in tax counseling, financial and estate planning, and other aspects of the sale and move.

Tips for a Stress-Free Move

Moving is never easy. But if you haven’t done it in a while there are a number of services, organizations and individuals who can make your move easier, including:

Space Organizers

Professional organizers, aging-in-place specialists, and staging professionals can be very helpful in determining how to best utilize your new space before you move. They’ll reduce your overall workload by only moving the items that work best in your new home, and help you make your new space organized, safe, and more enjoyable. We recommend Eliminate Chaos®, www.eliminatechaos.com.

Downsizing Specialist

If you’re moving into smaller quarters, downsizing first can greatly reduce the hassle associated with your move. If you don’t need it or want it, it’s best to make that determination before packing the first box. Family and friends may be able to help with this, but sometimes exacerbate the situation. A downsizing specialist is sensitive to the emotional aspects of eliminating personal items, while also making valuable recommendations on how to best dispose of what’s no longer needed or wanted.

​​​​​​​Senior Move Managers

Members of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM.org) are “individuals who assist older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/ or aging in place.” They offer one-stop shopping for downsizing, organizing and coordinating your move.
