8 Signs of a Good Agent Worth Selling Your Home

Not all real estate agents are equal. An analysis of 27 million transactions reveals that the top 5% of real estate agents sell homes for 10% more than the average agent.  That means that working with a subpar agent could lose you up to $25,000 on a $250,000 home deal — a considerable loss. With over 14,000 Agents in Las Vegas, there is no shortage to choose from.  But how do you know if a real estate agent is a top producer or an average Joe? Here are eight signs of a good real estate agent who can carry you

Is Listing Your Home During Holiday Season a Good Idea?

We have decided to sell our home. What comes next?

Once the decision is made to sell your home, the big question is – what now? Most homeowner’s are interviewing two or three Realtors to potentially list their home.  I would say that I get hired because of the answer to their first question:  “what do you want us to do?’  I have a reputation for breaking records in communities and I think its a direct reflection of how we present and market the house.

What I Love About Summerlin

Having moved to Las Vegas in 2002, I chose to reside in Summerlin, a master- planned community on the western slope of the Las Vegas valley.  I enjoy Summerlin very much – the amenities, restaurants, events and shopping.

Having grown up in the midwest, Summerlin seemed like a brand new world.  I fondly refer to it as the biosphere because you literally have everything you

Every time you go try to show a listing
