Initial Phone Consultation

Prior to your first appointment, Joske suggests scheduling a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation.

On this call I will work with you to understand your expectations, establish your goals, and gather all of the relevant facts regarding your property. After our discussion I will determine the best buyers to target for your property. If your property needs some repairs prior to entering the market, I will discuss your options and provide reputable vendors so you will feel confident that your property will be exposed in its best light. 

 

During this call, I will review the following with you:

  • A comprehensive understanding of the Selling Process in San Francisco

  • A thorough explanation of the Time & Action Flow-chart

  • Repairs, Staging, Vendors and Expected Costs​

    • Discuss the need for any repairs or staging prior to the property photoshoot

    • Determining your "Seller's Cost" 

  • Explain the Inspection Process 

  • Explain the Escrow Process in San Francisco

    • ​Maintain momentum by staying in close contact with potential buyers and interested brokers so that your property will remain fresh in their minds.

    • ​Follow up phone calls to agents after showings to solicit their comments on the price, showing condition, and their clients reaction to the property.

    • Provide updated information on real estate activity in the area in which your property is located. This information may affect our marketing plan.

    • ​Review the above with you on a regular basis to see whether our strategy needs reappraisal, our pricing is in accord with the market and that the property remains positioned properly for the sale. We will recommend any adjustments which may be necessary during this review process. ​​​

  • Current market conditions and a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report for your home

  • Strategies for successful Sale

  • How to prepare your property for showing and what to expect during the showing phase

  • How to mitigate any inevitable bumps that may pop up

  • How we work together, and how a real estate professional is compensated
     

The expectations of both parties will also be discussed, as well as fiduciary responsibilities and how our clients formalize their relationship with an agreement designating myself as their Realtor. By the end of the meeting, it should be clear whether or not both parties are a good fit for each other.
