Westborough Massachusetts Realtor

Realtors Westborough MA If you’re thinking about selling your home, condo or other Westborough Massachusetts Real Estate, give me the opportunity to help make the sale a smooth and stress free experience.

When you go about hiring a Realtor there should be a number of important considerations, including the agents past track record of success,  important statistical data such as the list price to sale price ratios/average days on market, along with their communication and marketing skills. While putting a SOLD rider on your lawn is my #1 goal, I also expect to make you feel like selling your home was not an ordeal!

I would welcome the chance to discuss why I am a well respected Realtor servicing Westborough Real Estate owners and how I put my clients homes where buyers find them online.

There are no other Realtors in Westborough MA who are providing the type and level of online exposure found here through integration of social media and search engine optimized results! If you are planning on selling your home, internet marketing is vital and one of the foundations of my business plan.

Without question, internet marketing is one of my specialties. There are not many Realtors who do what it takes to make your home seem like it is “featured” everywhere.

Your home will be found in all the top places that most buyer’s would be searching for Westborough homes for sale, including Maximum real estate exposure which is highly indexed by Google and other search engines. The thought process of great real estate marketing goes well beyond putting a for sale sign in your yard and listing on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). These are the things every Realtor does.

I take great pride in preparing the marketing for my clients homes. When it comes to Real Estate advertising, you will find that I do things that other Realtors do not including spending time on social media and search engine optimization. Seeing your home featured in Facebook, Google Plus, Linkedin and Twitter to name a few are the norm not the exception. The marketing of your home actually takes days to complete!

Additional things that help us stand out include exceptional photography from a high end camera, vivid descriptions describing all the best features and amenities of your home, along with a video tour that will be found in Youtube, Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, and MLS.

If you are in the market to buy, you will find a variety of residential options to choose from to fit your lifestyle and budget needs. Whether you are looking to purchase an affordable in town village colonial or an executive home, let me be your guide to the Real Estate market as an educated buyer’s agent.
