Not All Agents Are Alike



Many people assume that all Agents offer the same level of service and produce similar results. This assumption is not only false, it can end up costing a home seller a lot of money and time if they choose to work with the wrong Agent.

I have always prided myself on an aggressive marketing plan that gets the home sellers that I work with top dollar for their home in the shortest time possible.  I can actually document the difference that my marketing strategy makes:

According to the Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Service for the four year period between 2011-2014:
