Showings and Offers- is your home helping sell the competition?

April 23rd, 2012

Pricing is one of the most important aspects when selling your home!

Fantastic photos are a must as well as intriguing marketing pieces and plenty of information on the home, but beyond that, you want to bring buyers to who know your home is a value and are ready to make an offer.

Are you priced “in the market”?  Here is a great video to watch on the importance of pricing and how it affects not only your home but your competition.


If you are interested in selling your home this season we should talk.

Inventory is at the lowest it’s been since before 2009.  This means there is a smaller amount of homes for buyers to choose from.  Have you made improvements that make yours shine over others in your neighborhood?

Buyers are looking for homes just like yours in tip-top condition today.  Priced correctly you could easily be moving up in just a few weeks.

The Fish That Sold the House

July 14th, 2011

This is a great story, one for the record books, at least for me.

A little background first, a couple of months ago I got a call from Kathleen of Jeremey and Kathleen. Rachel went to design school at OU with her and she said she and her husband were looking for an investment/rental close to OCU.  Rolling up in high style on their Vespa to view houses was definitely cool.   So we found them a great place and they had a tenants beating down their door offering top dollar they day they listed it for rent.

Shortly after Kathleen called again, this time with a different request.  She and her sister had finally talked her parents into moving from Hall Park/Norman area up to Oklahoma City if they could find exactly the right house.  Her dad, Scott, had one minor requirement.  He wanted to be able to through a fishing line in a lake from the back porch of his house.  Because of the gorgeous listing I have in Briarcreek at I knew exactly where to take them.  I sent them a listing on the lake in the neighborhood and soon received a call that they wanted to take a look.

When I pulled up to meet them for the first time in front of the house, I could tell they were kind of excited.  They had already wondered around to the back to see the outstanding view and steps down to the water.  Scott walked up and said, this is pretty close to what we have been dreaming about for years.  The inside of the home was nicely updated and spacious with outstanding views of the water from almost every room.  While his wife Wanda and their daughter were ooing and awwing inside, Scott looked at me and said there is one final test!

He walked out to the car, pulled out a fishing pole and proceeded to the back porch and through a line in.  I kid you not, wthin a minute, HE HAD A BITE from a 3 lb bass.  He turned at me and said, we’re sold, how much is this place again.  And the rest was history, well almost.

Oh yeah, we listed their current home in Norman and had an offer in 1 day!

I will never forget the fishing pole and I want to thank that fish for showing Scott some love, at just the right moment.

That is what I absolutely love the most about this business, not the money, or the awards and accolades.  Knowing that I was able to help Scott & Wanda find the dream home they had been looking for nearly 20 years is why I do what I do.  There is no better feeling than knowing you helped someone put their finger on the thing they needed a little direction finding.

Scott & Wanda, enjoy your dream home.  And let me know when you catch the big one that got away!

Symphony Show House 2011

May 10th, 2011

Growing up, I frequently attended the annual Orchestra League Symphony Showhouse, and it was inspiring to see the architecture and creativity of the designers over the years.  Of particular interest to me was catching a glimpse into some of the greatest homes  that Oklahoma City has to offer.  Undoubtedly I feel this has helped to form my initial interest to eventual career in real estate.

As a volunteer at last year’s showhouse on Lake Overholser, I enjoyed the experience of meeting so many people and I decided I wanted to offer myself  this year to help.

Thousands of volunteers come together for this one event that brings in attendance from all over the state. It’s exciting to see that everyone from schoolchildren to senior citizens come out to support.

Months of work would not have been possible without my design cochairman Karen Smith, who is an accomplished event organizer for international museums and also World Cup Soccer.  As a sort of freshman to the Orchestra League, I am grateful to have been teamed up with such an accomplished Co-Chair; we have worked well together and I have learned so much from her great experience in the field.

Karen Smith, my Design Co-Chair on left and Cindy Raby, Show House Co-Chair on right.

From busted pipes and floods, to blizzards, and all the logistics and inner workings of a 15,000+ Sq. Ft. home, it has been an education to say the least!

Events such as the Preview Party, the first viewing of the empty house by the public, to the Gala Black Tie Event held prior to opening day have helped the momentum to build as we prepared to open the doors to the public.  The designers this year both new and seasoned have done an outstanding job again this year in the transformation of this jaw-dropping estate.

Table Setting at Black Tie Gala

I can’t wait to tour all my friends and family through the house, enjoy lunch in the Corner Bistro and share some of the memories I’ve made while volunteering for the 2011 Symphony Show House.  My membership to the Oklahoma City Orchestra League was the first step in getting involved.  I hope you will join me in supporting the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and music education by attending the show house, shopping in the boutique or perhaps buying any of the many furnishings available in the home.


Sold in Just 2 Days- Another Historic Linwood Charmer

April 19th, 2011

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago from a seller who said she new who I was but I didn’t know her.  She had taken a new job out of state and moved a months back leaving her home to be sold.  Her parents and in-laws had done all the right things to put the package together it just wasn’t being marketed.  It turns out her house is next door to a house I sold in Linwood Place a couple of months back.  She went with the referral of a friend of a friend who listed the home at a discount rate commission.  After being on the market a couple of months, the agent agreed to get some professional pictures taken of the house.

After having numerous showings, a price reduction and no offers, these Seller’s were looking for some direction on what it would take to get their home sold.   She politely asked the agent to hold the house open since it was staged and they hadn’t had any offers.  The agent politely in not so many words said he wasn’t getting paid enough to do so and that is when she looked up my number and gave me a call.

Long story short, she asked for a release and asked it was willing to take on her listing.  Absolutely!  I knew this house should have already been sold!  Working with her mom, who bent over backwards to complete each item in the list I recommended adding some fresh flowers, rearranging the staged furniture, and planting a few more flowers in the back we were primed and ready for one of my professional photographers, Justin Voight, to work his magic on this charming house.

Within 48 hours I had an offer from one of the first buyers who toured it.  It was a really good feeling getting to take down my open house sign and put a SOLD sign in the yard.  I enjoyed the rest of the afternoon negotiating another contract for another listing.  For all of you who ask about the Oklahoma City Real Estate market, it is going well when you are priced right, staged to perfection and can present your house and such a polished way!

I tell every seller I talk to, the PHOTOS POSTED ONLINE and the marketing promoted throughout all the outlets I use IS THE FIRST SHOWING FOR ANY POTENTIAL BUYER!  If your photos don’t bring them in, nothing will.

Tell me what you think, see all the virtual tour pics here:

I couldn’t be more pleased with our results, and my seller’s couldn’t either!
