Extremely positive experience working with Julie and Dave Butler! We sold a house and their part of the process was smooth from beginning to end. We met with David who gave a very detailed informal presentation helping us make our decision to use them as our selling agent. Little did he know our decision was already 95% made based on our previous experience using Steve Gore to buy & sell two other properties in the past. The presentation did highlight for us things that have changed as the market has evolved and online tools have become more available and matured. One huge benefit offered by David and Julie was staging the home included in their fee! I’m certain the staging resulted in extra dollars in sale price. They also provided great ideas about how to prepare the house for sale and the final result was stunning. The house showed incredibly well and generated enormous interest from buyers. I was a bit concerned when David introduced their pricing strategy for our property. It was fairly aggressive and somewhat counterintuitive – but it paid off (literally!) with a sales price 6.5% higher than list! We listed on Friday, open house on Sunday and 18 valid offers by Monday night! The negotiation process whittled the pool down to a few serious offers and we accepted one of those – the actual decision on which to accept was challenging because there were many excellent offers. One hiccup that occurred was our first buyers backed out shortly after establishing an accepted offer. Not a problem though since David immediately went to work and secured an accepted offer from one of the other potential buyers. Had it not been for David’s quick action, this setback may have been much more significant than the non-event it became. Progressing to close was smooth with the exception of the escrow company who seemed to be challenged with timely replies and communication of information. David spoke to them and their responsiveness improved dramatically and they eventually performed their service acceptably. Again, I believe David was instrumental in making this work to our favor instead of becoming a major issue. I would absolutely use David and Julie again and would recommend their services to anyone interested in selling or buying a property!
