Atlanta's Best Neighborhoods to Own a Home

Another Seller surprises me!

Yesterday, I went on a listing appointment that I thought would take 15 minutes. I figured I would politely decline listing the over-priced home and go on my merry way. Boy, was I surprised! The seller not only wanted me to market and list the home at the price I recommended (almost $100K below what they originally paid), he agreed to spend money replacing the carpet, rebuffing the hardwood floors and re-painting the interior and exterior portions of the home to make it shine!

Agents have been saying to Sellers for four years, that price sells a home in this market. But up until yesterday, I didn't realize they were starting to listen. It just goes to show that even experienced Realtors can still be shocked! Thank you, my new-sellers!
