Sandie knows her stuff!
After my husband got a new job out of state, we had a very short timeline to sell our home in a relatively slow time of year and a down market (yikes!). We spoke with another Realtor who advised us to wait until fall and told us to expect a sale price in the $160s (for our 4bd, fully updated home). Our neighbors across the alley had recently sold their home with Sandie and highly recommended her. We decided to give her a call for a second opinion.
She arrived at the meeting very well prepared with comps to show what was on the market, what had sold, how fast and at what price. With that information we were able to decide on a price that was based on sales, not current listings. Lots of homes similar to ours were listed around $200K, but after looking at the closed deals, the sales were closer to $185K. Being short on time, we decided to list right at $185K.
We put a lot of work into making sure the house looked perfect, including filling up two small storage units to get rid of excess belongings. Sandie recommended a home stager who came for a 2 hour consultation. All together we got the house looking perfect! Sandie’s fabulous team also includes a professional photographer so the online listing looked sharp. We had 14 showings and two offers in two weeks and our home sold!
When it came time to negotiate with the buyers, Sandie took a collaborative approach making sure that everyone’s needs were met. She handled the post-offer process (inspections, etc) just as professionally and worked hard to make sure everything was settled on a tight deadline. We were already out of state for the last week and a half prior to closing, but Sandie kept in close contact with us as things progressed.
I cannot say enough good things about Sandie Hea. She is very organized and has a great business system and a great support team. But most importantly she knows the market and how to sell a home!
