For a comprehensive Market Analysis please complete our Selling Evaluation Form.
Custom Market EvaluationWe develop a custom marketing evaluation to determine your most effective list price. Our analysis takes into account the most comparable active and recently sold properties throughout your neighborhood. We not only include the most recently sold comparable properties but also include any expired listing as it's important to take into account your competition when deciding to put your property on the market.
We will also provide a property evaluation from the Landcor Data Corporation. This evaluation combines multiple sources of data and creates, through the use of proprietary applications, a series of customized “value added” reports and property evaluation. Landcor works extensively with banks, credit unions, real estate professionals, and other professional services companies involved in the purchase or sale of real estate and has structured a long-term relationship with the British Columbia Assessment Authority (the provincial Crown corporation that assesses all properties in the province for taxation purposes) that guarantees access to a wide range of real estate data and sales transactions for the entire province.
Effective MarketingIn marketing your home, we also develop a listing that emphasizes its unique and sellable aspects. We help accomplish this goal by walking through your home for a pre-inspection to determine its current condition and explain the importance of “staging” and how it is a must to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar. We will be sure to highlight all renovations and upgrades that you may have added to increase your home’s value.Your home will be professionally photographed by Barn Owl Photography. A video and 3d floor plan will be produced highlighting the features of your home. A custom feature sheet will be created to ensure your home stands out from the pack.
We use our innovative and niche websites to make your listing highly visible with potential buyers specifically searching for homes in your neighbourhood. We then put your home in front of buyers, establishing it on the local MLS as well as broader ones, custom listing sheets, and real estate publications. Our wide network of professional real estate contacts and buyers will also have the opportunity to check out your listing. With more than 90% of buyers checking the web first when looking for a home, our primary marketing focus is online which includes advertising to over 10,000 realtors through the Multiple Listing Services on realtylink.org, mls.ca and a “featured listing” on one or more of the following sites: uchidarealestate.com, blurealty.com, www.vancitylofts.com, craigslist.com, youtube.com & facebook.com
Showings & FeedbackOur aggressive marketing program will bring in all potential buyers within the first few weeks your listing is posted. With your approval, we will conduct “open houses” for the general public and we will arrange a scheduled system to keep you updated with feedback from all showings.
Negotiating the Best DealWe will answer all your questions and point out potential advantages and disadvantages of any offer and clarify the choices available to you. To help make your decision we prepare an estimate of net proceeds based on the proposed price and terms. We negotiate through the buyer's agent; handle possible counteroffers, to reach a final agreement.
Closing the DealWork with the buyer's agent, and others to help coordinate to keep the transaction moving forward. We take care of providing the prospective buyers any documentation, monitor the progress of inspections, the buyer's financing and other contingencies as called for in the offer and resolve any questions or problems that might arise, in order to ensure a timely closing. We accompany the buyer and buyer's agent during their inspection and the final walk-through.
Follow Up after the Sale CompletesWe assist in handling all the details required for the completion of the transaction and confirm all your real estate-related needs have been met. If you will be purchasing a new home, we would be happy to work with you as a buyer’s agent. If you’re buying we will arrange the closing dates for the sale of your home to coincide with the closing dates on your new home purchase.

"Tracy is truly a phenomenal agent and trusted advisor throughout the real estate process. She has the flawless ability to take what can be a daunting and frightening first time experience and, with her confidence, positive attitude and charm turn it into an exciting and enjoyable event. We worked with Tracy on a condo purchase and sale, a loft purchase and sale and most recently she took us through the purchase of our first house! Without a doubt we will turn to Tracy, her creative negotiating skills and enthusiastic energy, when the time comes to sell this home."

"We just wanted to take this time to thank you for the work you've done both with selling my Cannery Row loft and the purchase of our new house. Throughout the process you have been available, extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. Your relaxed but thorough approach has made the experience of selling and buying stress and hassle-free, which, to us, is probably the most important thing."
