Real Estate Services
Nicole provides her clients with excellent service, before and after a sale has closed escrow, creating lasting relationships. Whether you are considering buying, selling or exchanging, Nicole's experience and proven methods will ensure you net the highest amount possible with best terms. Here’s How:
We underwrite the details of your property with as much information as you provide ensuring our pricing is correct to begin with and obtain a loan quote as well. Proper due diligence on my end is key to effectively pricing your property before aggressively marketing to active investors. Having our finger on the pulse of the market and knowing the intricacies of the neighborhood gives us insight as to what pricing strategy will work best for your property to achieve multiple offers which creates an environment where buyers put their best foot forward.
Effective Marketing Plan
Each listing has professional photos taken and a website dedicated to your listing. We then mail postcards to local owners (on average over 3,500) and make phone calls to all local owners letting them know we have a fantastic listing for them to take a look at. 1031 exchange buyers are aggressively targeted and an email blast is sent to nearly 1,000 local investment property owners with all of the data on your property. Concurrently we upload your listing to the Loopnet, CoStar, MLS, Zillow, Trulia and all of the top real estate sites and cooperate with other brokers starting DAY ONE (if seller permits). This is very unique and gets your listing in front of more than just our own clients. Your Property is placed on KW Commercial internal website and presented in office meetings. Depending on the specifics of your property it may be submitted to CurbedLA.com (we have had listing featured in the past) or for online marketing on the Eastsider.com, TheRealDeal.com etc. For more information on our aggressive marketing plan, inquire today!
Using these methods I have an established track record of closing properties within 9_% of list price!
During the listing period we give bi-weekly feedback from the market on how your listing is doing; how many calls we have received, showings, offers etc. and make recommendations based on how the market is responding.
Prior to presenting offers we confirm the buyer’s have driven to the property and reviewed all information. Once we field offers we vet the buyers to make sure they are well qualified with verification of funds and schedule of real estate. We then extract the most important deal terms from the 15+ page contracts and bullet point them for you with counter recommendations to make your decision making process as easy as possible. Then the negotiating begins!
Throughout our listing period we will be there to conduct property tours, put together due diligence packages for buyers, and generally act a liaison on your behalf for your property management, tenants, vendors, buyers etc. This may include posting notices to tenants, managing the estoppel certificate process, meeting with vendors, picking up keys from management, coordinating retrofitting, being present for any inspections and or repairs, etc. and report back to you any pertinent information. Our goal is to make the transition out of owning your property as seamless and with as little burden to you as possible. When we are hired to sell your property we try to eliminate any details falling on your shoulders.
Once escrow is open we are there to direct and help with the process which includes:
Reviewing escrow instructions
Making sure deposit is in
Coordinating signatures if need be
Making sure reports are ordered
Keeping the Close of Escrow Date a top priority
An experienced transaction coordinator manages files from list phase to close of Escrow and beyond ensuring all documents have been reviewed, initialed, signed and deadlines are met.
Whether you need a referral for a retrofitting company, termite inspection, or a multifamily lender, I have existing relationships with various vendors who provide excellent service, fair pricing and aide in successful and smooth transactions.
1031 Exchange Expertise
Many of our clients are looking to capitalize on their equity and/or minimize management hassle and choose to defer their capital gains with a 1031 exchange. I've successfully navigated clients through 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges for dozens of clients, and can help you too!
Hiring an agent for the sale of your investment property is equivalent of hiring one person to manage many different tasks and details. Making sure you work with someone with experience to navigate through the incredible amount of details and a team to help accomplish all of your real estate goals is the most important thing. Getting your price and terms is of utmost importance and working with someone who has deal experience to minimize any liability or stress on your part is of paramount importance as well.
