What I Do
Free Consultation. I will inspect your property and we can interview each other to see if we want to work together. Your goals will be clarified and questions answered.
Comparative Market Analysis. I will prepare a detailed computer analysis of the market value of your property based on recent comparables to assist in determining a reasonable list price.
Combined Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS). Your property will appear in the 32,000-agent CRMLS and be seen by agents from San Diego to Santa Barbara and from Palm Springs to the Beach. They will earn ½ the commission if they sell it.
Pictures and Video. Using a wide-angle, digital HD camera, I will take up to 35 carefully composed pictures or video of your property and area to display online.
Internet Exposure. Your property will be featured on BlackHorseRealty.biz and over 100 websites to which it is linked.
Interactive State-Of-The-Art For Sale Sign includes 2 QR codes (square barcodes). Buyers who scan it with their smartphone will instantly access your property details, pictures, and video WHILE THEY ARE STILL THERE! Or they can send a text to get the same instant information. Either way, I capture their contract information, enabling my follow-up with them and feedback to you!
Social Networking. The second QR code on the sign takes viewers to the BlackHorseRealty.biz website where they can also view your property, contact me, follow me on Twitter, view pictures and videos of your property on Facebook or YouTube, and use other tools.
Negotiations. My experience will serve you well in my negotiations for you regarding price, terms, repair requests, and other issues that may arise.
Disclosures. I will assist you in obtaining and completing all required disclosure statements. These voluminous documents usually make up the bulk of the paperwork in the whole transaction.
CD of Your Whole Transaction. At closing, I will give you a CD of all the documents of your file for your records.

Electronic Signatures. I use a service called Digital Ink which enables all documents in the transaction to be signed online electronically. You simply “click to sign.” It’s very cool!
Inspections. In addition to my own visual inspection, I will be there for all inspections.
Termite. I will coordinate termite inspections, reports, and work.
Advertise. I will promote your property to the public and other agents via print and electronic ads.
Assist the Buyer’s Lender’s Appraiser. I will meet the appraiser at the property and give them comps to support the sold price.
Lockbox. I use a Supra electronic lockbox which immediately notifies me by text and email when an agent opens the box, giving me their name, company, time showed, and comments they may make. I will share this with you.
Escrow Coordination. Once under contract, I will be the “captain of your team” of pros in coordinating every detail of the closing process.
Communication. I am easily accessible via phone, email, or text. I promise to give you regular updates.
Open Houses. At your option, I will host broker’s and public open houses.
Staging and Fix-Up Advice. I will offer suggestions on ways to enhance the appeal of your home by offering fix-up tips and staging ideas. Referrals to professional staging services are available.
