When we received a call to discuss the sale of a home in La Habra, it was right up our alley. The seller was looking to sell his long-time family home and was very aware and direct about its need for a facelift. It had been advised, by another agent, that the seller spend upward of $60,000 to do a major renovation thereby increasing the potential asking price of the home. When this was explained to us we offered a different approach. Since the large scale and very expensive...

Realtor Redux: An Inspired Improvement in Tustin

When a past client from nearly 10 years ago contacted us to assist with the sale of his home in Tustin, we were thrilled to be trusted and for his loyalty.

Will the Realtor Redux method prevail? The outcome

We’re back at our Fullerton condo, now with unobstructed majestic mountain and golf course views. The unit is bright and modern, coated in fresh interior paint with carpets cleaned. This condo had languished on the market, as not one but TWO other agents lacked the right touch to move this property. Initially a lack of home staging held homebuyers back from seeing its potential. When that didn’t work, the second agent staged with the homeowner’s existing furnishings and...

A golden outcome: Key home improvements in short time span yield multiple offers, happy seller

With only a 12-day window in which to complete our latest project, we had our work cut out for us. We had a pretty significant list of items that needed a little TLC. We refinished the hardwood floors, which date back to the home’s construction in 1956. We also installed new tile in the master bathroom. A fresh coat of paint is one of the best things you can do to immediately give new life to a room. We repainted the interior including the kitchen cabinets. We also made...
