Homes by Email
Be the first to see new listings as soon as they hit the market!
Entrusting the marketing and eventual sale of your home to a Realtor® in the Quad Cities can be a big decision. So what makes one Realtor® better than the next? Is it because they are your cousin? Is it because you went to school with them? Is it because you drive past their billboard on a daily basis? Although I hear these reasons frequently, it should not be your sole factor for choosing a Realtor®.
Since selling your home can be a life changing decision it is in your best interest to work with a Realtor® who has a great track record of selling homes in the Quad Cities market. Since most agents don’t voluntarily offer up their personal statistics – the ones in which I am about to share with you – you need to ask. And if they don’t know them, they either don’t care what they are or they are so poor that the Realtor® simply doesn’t want to share them.
For most sellers, the equity they have in their current home will be used for a down payment on a new one. Part of my job as your Iowa Quad Cities Realtor® is to make sure you have as much money for your next down payment as possible. To illustrate this I am including a few key personal statistics taken directly from the Quad City Board of Realtors® Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

I feel that my professional selling statistics speak volumes for what type of a sellers agent I am. Since choosing the right Realtor® in the Quad Cities is so important I hope that you will seriously consider myself for the job.
