There are more people today attempting to sell their own homes. Many go this route because they do not believe that a Realtor (R) Brings any more value to them than what they achieve on their own.

The key to retaining the services of the right Realtorto sell your home is to ask the right questions. It is important to ask the Realtor what types of marketing and advertising they do, prior to handing over your most valuable asset for sale.

"Our experience in working with David was one in that we felt like we were dealing with family. David was always available when we needed him. He provided solid and accurate advice based on his years of experience. David clearly explained the process along the way, outlined available options and left the final decision to us. His refrain of, "There are no wrong answers", helped us to relax and to make an informed decision. David's true talent shines during a purchase. His negotiating skills allowed us to secure our dream heritage home at an excellent price. He truly does thrive on what others may consider an enervating situation. David's jovial nature was entertaining; he made what could be a stressful time much easier". Dr. P. Rankin
