We came in contact with this seller who was frustrate and discourage after witnessing us sell their neighbor’s home in a multiple offer situation in only 48 HOURS. The sellers were curious how we did it. The short answer is our process. Specializing in re-marketing homes through the CK Creative, we were able to create excitement and renewed interest in the home even though its been sitting on the market for multiple months.

After about 2 weeks on the market, the seller commented: “We’ve had more showings in this short time period than we had the entire time the property was listed before.”
