How To Sell Your Home

Are you thinking of selling your home in the Kansas City MO area? There is much work to do and things to consider before hammering the real estate sign in your front yard. The first step being preparing your home to put on the market. Once your home is ready, it's time to interview prospective realtors. Most people don't know how to properly interview a realtor, and what questions to ask to point you to the realtor who is most qualified and likely to sell your home in the fastest time possible for the best price possible.

Nearly all realtors will put a sign in your yard and submit your listing to the Kansas City MLS. They might even hold an open house and place an ad in the local newspaper. What do I offer that sets me apart?

Marketing - Let's face it...nobody buys a home out of the Springfield NewsLeader these days. It's all internet. If your agent is not heavy on internet advertising, your chances of selling are greatly diminished. Your home will be featured on my website, . I will syndicate your listing across the internet to various real estate websites, including, but not limited to,,, Trulia, Zillow, HotPads, Oodle, Yahoo!, GoogleBase, Craigslist, DotHomes, FrontDoor, Vast, BackPage, Enormo, Point2Homes, Homefinder, SecondSpace, Cyberhomes, Facebook and more.

Lina Robertson - RE/MAX Solutions - RealtorReporting - I will provide you with weekly reports showing how much activity you've received on the various websites, including how many views your listing has received, and how many people "clicked" on your listing for more information. In addition, you will be allowed full access to your listing on, and be able to add your own marketing comments, and special features you love about your home.

Showing Feedback - Electronic lockboxes allow realtors to monitor the showings on their listings. Each morning I check my showings for the previous day and send feedback reports via The showing agent will be asked to answer questions regarding your home such as how the home showed, whether the price is above market, below market, or just right, what their buyer's thoughts were of the home, and any suggestions they may have regarding your home. The agent's feedback is automatically e-mailed to you so you're getting fresh, unfiltered feedback straight from the source.Lina Robertson - RE/MAX Solutions - Realtor

Customer Service - Real estate is my full-time job. By full-time, I don't mean that I only work 40 hours per week. I work each time my phone rings. The phone number on the sign in your yard is my personal cell phone number. Prospective buyers will not have to be routed through my office or answering service, or be connected to an office voicemail that is only checked once a day. Their call comes straight to me. And yes....I answer my phone. :)
