One of the top questions I get from homeowners today is: “Should I put my home on the market if I don’t know where I am going to live yet?” My take, as it often is: “It depends”.
After a year where nearly all the articles written in every publication included the word unprecedented, many are ready for a more precedented year. In many respects, January has not delivered that, yet real estate on the Peninsula/Silicon Valley has been very consistent and those of us in the industry are as optimistic as ever about what the future holds.
Recently, one homeowner opted not to sell their home this year after we reviewed their specific goals and found a way convert the home to an income generator for them. That opened up the possibility of relocating out of the area to be closer to family. We were able to discover that opportunity by exploring their interests in detail. I’ve always believed the difference is in the details, and I am happy to go in a different direction if it is what is best for the client.
The reasons to sell a home are as varied as the personalities and dreams of the homeowners. I see it as my job to understand the needs and goals of my clients so that I can provide the right information at the right time to make the best decisions.
My passion is to be the difference maker for my clients. If you have asked yourself in the past month, “but where will I live?” then we should talk.

Real estate is nuanced in ways no one can imagine until they are in the middle of a transaction and what seemed like a tiny item on a long list of details becomes the difference in an offer being accepted or declined.
My take is the distinguishing factor has more to do with the relationships built from the moment the parties involved first meet. The old adage you never get a chance to make a first impression rings true, yet it is also important to nurture and deepen that relationship whether the offer is accepted in 3 days or in 3 months. Of course, in today's market it is much more likely to be closer to the 3 days.
Once again this month, I was able to obtain a home in a very competitive bid situation despite not having the highest bid. The home owner liked the buyer and the real estate agent. They loved their home and wanted it to go to someone that would love it like they did. It happens more often than you might think.
I see my job as making the difference for you. I love my job.
