Getting Ready to Sell
The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and I will give you an idea of what to expect during the selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing and house preparations. I will provide you with a complete Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA) for your property. Once you have decided you are ready, we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. We will also help you complete all of the mandatory disclosure forms and will arrange any necessary inspections.
Preparing The Property
Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it is most attractive to potential buyers. Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expense, is at the core of what I do. I will provide you with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers. If staging is necessary, I will share some options based on your property.
Determining The Price
Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among brokers and buyers and lead to a more successful sale.
Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity.
Processing the Sale and Closing
The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through my continuous guidance and communication. I will review all offers and terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your bests interests.
Congratulations, you have now sold your home! I will provide you with helpful moving hints and also be there to answer any questions. I am always available to help you should a question arise after the close of escrow and I want to ensure that you are 100% satisfied.
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Cristina. She was introduced to me by my manicurist of all people. After meeting I expressed to Cristina what we were looking for in a 2nd home. Cristina has gone above and beyond her scope of practice while being brutally honest and transparent. Cristina is not only our realtor, but has also become our friend. Her personality is so infectious and full of positivity. We just love her vibe!!!
Cristina is friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and the consummate professional in real estate matters. I highly recommend seeking her advice if you’re interested in having the best there is as your advocate.

Cristina is a true Smyrna girl and knows this area intimately. She has been a wonderful resource for me and my husband in discovering this area, while we search for our new home here. She is passionate about finding the perfect home for our family and she’s an integral part of our “home finding team!” I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate.
It was a truly a pleasure working with Cristina. I had no idea I would find a home in my price range that exceeded my expectations. However, Cristina’s determination and commitment to meeting my unique living needs led to the purchase of my dream home. I’ve since recommended Cristina to anyone looking for a home and will continue to do so
