To Utilize Extensive Knowledge About Summit County

Henry has extensive knowledge and history about property here in Summit County and also the years of experience necessary to ensure that the sale is carefully handled with attention to detail. We will do our best to make sure that any related issues such as survey issues, inspection issues, and unexpected issues related to the property are discovered and dealt with properly to ensure a smooth and informed transfer at sale.

To Handle The Detail Work

Such as inspection, title work, surveys, appraisal and lender follow up. There are approximately 60-200 coordinating phone calls between the time a property goes under contract and closing of the property.

To Help Maintain The Property

With names of appropriate service providers such as security, snow removal, etc., especially if your property is vacant and you don’t live in the area.

To Stay In Touch With You

Our listing coordinators can tailor the amount of contact to meet individual needs so that you will know what is going on and where we are in the marketing process. We have a personalized marketing plan to suite your individual needs. We will e-mail you showing responses immediately as we receive them. We will also call or e-mail with any critical updates.

To Show You Consideration

Because I know if you are living in your home, it’s difficult to have it ready to show all the time, I will try to work with you on a showing schedule that is realistic. We can help you with things like animal control, if your pets are home and you are not.

To give advice to help your home sell quickly

Not only will you get a printed handout describing how to prepare your property so that it will show its best, but I’ll give you specific suggestions to improve the impression it will make to buyers.

To Advertise Your Property Where It Fits Best

Traditional Advertising

Our advertising program is second to none in Summit County. We utilize local newspaper photo classified ads, full page ads in our local real estate section of the paper; Real Estate magazine ads and Cable TV ads carefully placed during high viewing times in both our local market and Denver areas. Each property has a custom color brochure created and available on site at all times.

Online Marketing

This website is professionally developed and in constant review to ensure search engine placement in the top four results for the most common searches made by buyers looking for real estate in our community. Your property will be presented to potential buyers with multiple photos and descriptive text on this web site. We receive regular requests for more information about our listings from this web site.

Our listings are also presented on, the local RE/MAX and national RE/MAX web sites, Mountain Homes Illustrated, The Real Estate Book websites, Trulia, Zillow and others.

To Ensure Maximum Exposure

We try to hold open houses for the public at strategic times to ensure maximum exposure (with sellers’ approval). One of the most effective ways to expose the Property is to have as many local Realtors as possible preview the property. If they know the property they are more likely to be able to sell it. To achieve this, we take 15-20 RE/MAX brokers through on our office tours within the first week of listing, and we also hold broker luncheons for 30-40 outside brokers inviting the real estate community to visit and provide feedback for us and the seller to help with the sale. We advise our Sellers on the best way to present the property to put it in the most marketable condition to maximize value. This way, such items as paint, carpet, cleaning, clutter, and condition can be addressed to increase appeal.

To Cover Your Property With A Home Warranty

Each property will be covered by a 14 month home warranty from the date of closing from Blue Ribbon Home Warranty. We have found that buyers appreciate this peace of mind.

To Explain Pros & Cons Of Contract Proposals

When I bring contract proposals for your consideration, I’ll explain them as well as answer any questions you may have.

To Explain The Process of Selling A Home

I’ll explain the entire selling process so there won’t be any surprises along the way.
