MY PREVIOUS SELLER SUCCESSES

You can read my reviews from past clients and I can tell you what I will do to get your home sold, but I also want to share with you some of my recent success stories for my home seller clients. Some of my past listings are highlighted below with details about how I helped my clients achieve their goals in different circumstances. I keep this page as updated as I can with new stories, but sometimes I am too busy helping my clients to update as often as I'd like. With that being said, while my most recent examples are from January 2022, I have helped many sellers since then and am looking forward to helping you sell your home, too! 

 

To see where else I have listed homes in the Tampa Bay area, check out the map on this page. Hopefully this information shows you that I will represent you professionally and get you the best possible price for your home while also making sure we get you a contract with the right terms to fit your goals. When you list and sell your home with me, getting to the closing table will go smoothly and easily.

SOLD & CLOSED

  • 3048 Esplanade Dr, New Port Richey, FL 34655

    • Sold January 2022

    • Listed for $250,000. Sold for $310,000.

    • There were 5 owners of this home as their brother had passed away and left it to 5 family members. I worked with the main point of contact to get the home listed and we agreed based on the comparable home sales that $250,000 is what the home likely could have appraised for and therefore the right price to start at. Via negotiation, I was able to get two cash buyers offering $310,000 (substantially higher than the other offers) and then used that multiple offer situation to get one of them to go to $315,000. The home inspection did turn up some issues so after discussing with the sellers what would be the right move for them (repair versus credit), they agreed to credit the buyers $5,000 for repairs so we ultimately ended up selling for $310,000, but the seller still got $60,000 more than they expected.

  • 11045 Rockledge View Dr, Riverview, FL 33579

    • Sold on January 2022

    • Listed for $340,000. Sold for $391,755.

    • When the owner and I met she disclosed that the roof was original and had been repaired before but she thought it would pass an inspection. Based on that information and the comparable home sales, we decided to list at $340,000 (thinking the highest it could appraise for may be between $350,000 and $360,000). We received several offers, most around $360,000 but a couple much higher. Ultimately we were able to get her under contract at $391,755. However, knowing that it wouldn’t appraise for that high, I made sure the buyer put in an appraisal gap contingency - they were willing to pay over the appraisal value so that the seller would still be guaranteed as much money as possible for her home. Unfortunately we discovered during the inspection process that the roof was leaking and needed to be replaced. I put the seller in touch with a roofer who would take payment at closing (so she didn’t need to come out of pocket up front for the expense). Additionally, when the appraiser reached out to appraise the home, I made the argument to them that with the new roof, this home was actually almost as valuable as a new construction home (as it was only 12 years old) and therefore should be compared to much newer homes that were selling at higher prices than the other homes like hers in the neighborhood. Thanks to that, the appraiser did end up appraising the home for the full contract price, so the seller got $50,000 more than they expected to. 

  • 4735 White Sanderling Ct, Tampa, FL 33619

    • Sold January 2022

    • Listed for $235,000. Sold for $240,000

    • Picking your real estate agent shouldn’t just be about the price they suggest you list at - you should hire someone with the experience to handle unexpected situations who can provide the best outcome regardless of how the process goes. This client listed with me after being referred to me by her sister (who’s home I had sold earlier this year). We looked at the comparable sales and saw none of the same floorplans in the community had recently sold for over $235,000 so we listed at $235,000. We got several offers, three of which all came in around $255,000. Via negotiation, I was able to get a cash buyer to increase their offer to $257,000 so the seller took that. However, it was discovered during the process that the community had an outstanding lawsuit it was party to (that the seller had not known about previously). At this point, the buyer either wanted a price reduction or was going to cancel the contract. So I reached out to all the other buyers who were interested previously and lined up several backup options for the seller. Ultimately though the seller personally chose to reduce the price and stay under contract with the current buyer (because that made more sense for her), but had she wanted to go under contract with a different buyer, I made sure there would be another good offer lined up for her to take so she wouldn’t have to relist the home.

  • 4232 Crestfield Avenue, Holiday, FL 34691

    • Sold on 10/7/2021

    • Listed for $155,000. Sold for $172,000.

    • The owner of this property had given her daughter a Power of Attorney to sell the home. Working with her daughter, I suggested ways to get the home ready for sale by removing everything, touching up paint, making a few repairs, etc. The seller and I agreed that based on the comparable home sales, $155,000 was a good price to start at. Via negotiation, I was able to get a conventional loan buyer to offer $185,000 and a cash buyer to offer $172,000. Ultimately as the seller felt the home would not appraise for $185,000 and that the cash buyer would be easier to work with, they took the $172,000 offer and we were able to close within 2 weeks.

  • 9737 Meadow Field Circle, Tampa, FL 33626

    • Sold on 10/7/2021

    • Listed for $260,000. Sold for $285,000.

    • In 2017 the owners of this home hired me to sell their home in Gibsonton and help them buy this home in Westchase. Then in 2021 they called me to help them resell this home as they were moving out of state. ​After reviewing the comparable home sales, both the sellers and I agreed that a $260,000 listing price would be a stretch but that we thought we could get it because of the neighborhood. We received 12 offers and I was able to get a cash buyer to agree to pay higher than our other offers, so the sellers were able to close within 2 weeks.

  • 1888 Del Robles Terrace, Clearwater, FL 33764

    • Sold on 8/31/2021

    • Listed for $525,000. Sold for $600,000.

    • ​I used my “four days on market” strategy and negotiated multiple offers to get the sellers the highest price possible. Knowing the home would not appraise for the contract price, I also got the Buyer to agree to include an appraisal gap contingency, two escrow deposits, and a “good as cash” clause to make sure the sellers will still get the agreed upon price even if the home does not appraise.

  • ​9303 Knightsbridge Court, Tampa, FL 333647

    • Sold on 8/24/2021

    • Listed for $400,000. Sold for $450,000.

    • I negotiated multiple offers and made it so that one of the offer's escalation clauses would kick in so we could get the highest amount the Buyers were willing to pay. The first buyer’s escalation clause was for $40,000 over list and we got another (cash) offer at that price. So I told the cash buyer if they wanted to set themselves apart they needed to go to $50,000 above list and they did. I also suggested we go with the cash buyer’s offer because we know it won't appraise for the price it’s under contract at.​

  • 8904 Cameron Crest Drive, Tampa, FL 33626

    • Sold on 8/2/2021

    • Listed for $450,000. Sold for $482,000.

    • I negotiated multiple offers so that one of the offer's escalation clauses would kick and we could get the highest amount those buyers were willing to pay. I also got the buyers to include a $20,000 appraisal gap contingency. I sent the appraiser the best comps I could, knowing it wouldn’t appraise for the full price. The home did appraise low, but the sellers still got the full price because the Buyers agreed to pay the appraisal gap.

  • 4324 Rustic Pine Place, Wesley Chapel, FL 33544

    • Sold on 7/30/2021

    • Listed for $485,000. Sold for $520,000.

    • I suggested we list at an aggressive start price ($500,000), but the Sellers wanted to list at $485,000 lower than my recommendation (as they wanted it sold fast) so we did. I negotiated multiple offers, and actually got it under contract for $520,000 over what I had suggested (so $35,000 over list price). Unfortunately, the next day the buyer backed out! However, I immediately contacted the second highest offer and got them to come up to the price we had it under contract at before. That meant the Sellers wouldn't have to take a lower offer even though the first buyer backed out. I also got the Buyers to agree to a $7,500 appraisal gap so if the home didn’t appraise for the full price the Sellers will at least be getting more than the appraised value.

  • 1736 N Martin Luther King Jr, Clearwater, 33755

    • Sold on 7/23/2021

    • Listed for $270,000. Sold for $302,000.

    • The seller had interviewed two other agents and both suggested a lower list price than I did. The seller and I did not expect it to appraise for more than $270,000, but out of three offers I was able to get one buyer to go up to $302,000 AND include an appraisal gap of $10,000, so even if the home didn't appraise for the contract price, the Seller would still get at least $10k more than the home was worth (based on the appraisal). I then met with the appraiser, gave him specific comps, and in doing so the house ended up appraising at $302,000. The Seller never expected to get $302,000 and was shocked and obviously happy with the outcome.

  • 32847 Woodthrush Way, Wesley Chapel, FL 33545

    • Sold on 8/20/2021​

    • Listed for $265,000. Sold for $274,000.

    • Initially I was able to get this under contact at $25,000 over the asking price. The buyers backed out after 6 days (for personal reasons) and I went back to the previous offers we had and was able to salvage a deal for the sellers. I know we could have gotten a higher second offer but the Sellers didn't want to show the home anymore, so we took a backup offer and still got them $9,000 over asking price.

  • 2475 39th Ave N, St Petersburg, 33714

    • Sold on 7/12/2021

    • Listed for $150,000. Sold for $190,000.

    • Based on comparable home sales, the seller and I both agreed $150,000 would be a comfortable place to list at. He had inherited the home so wanted to get as much money as possible from it, but knew it needed a lot of work. We received multiple offers and over the course of two days I was able to keep negotiating and pushing the offers higher so that we finally got a $190,000 cash offer.                      

  • 9213 Hillcroft Dr, Riverview, 33578

    • Sold on 6/28/2021

    • Listed for $215,000. Sold for $235,000.

    • Nothing in the community had sold for as high as we got it under contract for, and this home did not appraise for the $253,000 contract price, but I had negotiated an appraisal gap so the Seller still walked away with the $235,000 the Buyer had offered. I also negotiated this deal while on vacation, so I never take a day off from working for my clients!

  • 1609 Winchester Rd N, St Petersburg, 33710

    • Sold on 6/10/2021

    • Listed for $225,000. Sold for $241,000.

    • The Sellers wanted to price aggressively knowing that they had some time to drop the price if needed. I suggested $225,000 as a good combination of higher pricing but still in a range that would get us the traffic we needed to sell the home for the best price and terms. We had multiple offers and I was able to get the Buyers to go $1,000 higher than the second highest offer. I also advised the Sellers to pick this offer as they were cash so we would not have a problem with appraisal.  

  • 23838 Coral Ridge Ln, Land O Lakes, 34639

    • Sold on 6/2/2021

    • Listed for $240,000. Sold for $260,000.

    • We had a lot of showings on this property but only a few offers that materialized. Regardless, I was able to negotiate a substantially higher offer than the Sellers expected.
