SELLING PRICE $70,000 DOLLARS OVER

I became the Successor Trustee to by mother and father-in-law’s estate. Ginette Skelton was referred to me by their lawyer. After interviewing her and other candidates as Realtor® for their home, I along with other family members decided she would best represent the family based on her knowledge of the area, her professionalism, her ideas for best preparing the home for the market, and the services she offered. The task of getting the home ready for market weighed heavily on my mind. With a reverse mortgage on the home things needed to move quickly, but there were many complications including the home being quick deeded out of the trust, home improvements needed to reflect current styles, repairs needed, and a huge number of items left behind that needed to be sold or disposed of. All of this while I was dealing with the multitude of people, organizations, and financial institutions that…

After interviewing her and other candidates as Realtor® for their home, I along with other family members decided she would best represent the family based on her knowledge of the area, her professionalism, her ideas for best preparing the home for the market, and the services she offered. The task of getting the home ready for market weighed heavily on my mind. With a reverse mortgage on the home things needed to move quickly, but there were many complications including the home being quick deeded out of the trust, home improvements needed to reflect current styles, repairs needed, and a huge number of items left behind that needed to be sold or disposed of. All of this while I was dealing with the multitude of people, organizations, and financial institutions that needed to be contacted/dealt with and very little time in my busy schedule to do so. Ms. Skelton provided referrals to local estate sale companies, painters, flooring experts, plumbers, and everything needed to keep to prep the home for sale. She handled all details such as scheduling appointments, taking estimates, supervising all work, and keeping me informed of all progress along the way. She was instrumental in getting work done for the best price, at a quick pace, and helping the trust realize a much higher profit than expected through the estate company she recommended. The large number of hours she put in coordinating was greatly appreciated, especially since I live at a distance from the home and would have spent countless hours commuting between locations. The suggestions she made for preparing the home for sell raised the selling price $70,000 dollars over what other Realtors® quoted after their recommendations for marketing, with less expense to the trust. Her efforts continued through open house and escrow, helping the home to sell in a timely manner. I also greatly appreciated that Ms. Skelton made herself easily accessible for any questions and worked diligently to make sure the interest of the family was considered at all times. Her warm demeanor makes her easy to approach and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home and would not hesitate to call on her services again.

When all was said and done, there was nothing for me to do – Ginette took care of absolutely everything.

ABOVE AND BEYOND

I consider myself very lucky to have been referred to Ginette and her partner. As an out-of-area Trustee, selling the family home could not have been handled with more professionalism and dedication. In what could have been a very stressful situation, requiring many, many hours of time and many miles of traveling back and forth, these real estate professionals were always willing to take the extra step to keep me informed and provide me with all of the needed resources, referrals, and information to sell this property for top dollar. I would highly recommend Ginette Skelton for any and all of your real estate service needs. I truly feel they went above and beyond, from handling all of the large details like multiple bids from estate salespeople, painters, handymen, and landscapers to marketing the property aggressively and ultimately a smooth sales transaction and coming in above the ask…

OUT-OF-STATE ADMINISTRATOR

I heartily and without reservation recommend Ginette Skelton for realty services, including probate and estate matters. I had the occasion to retain her services for the disposition of estate-owned real property in Long Beach, California in late 2013. Despite how problems might have arisen due to my location out of state, any such problems were avoided entirely by her sterling service, industry, and excellent communication skills. I found her responsiveness to matters as they arose to be both outstanding and timely. Ms. Skelton offered useful guidance and advice during the sale process and displayed honesty, loyalty, and meticulous organizational skills. As an out-of-state administrator (and attorney in my private life), I appreciated her professionalism and attention to detail. Her extensive contacts for necessary services, procedural knowledge, and knowledge of the market facilitated t…

She consistently performed at what I would consider an “above and beyond” level".

PROBATE SALE SUBJECT TO OVERBIDS

After looking at a ton of homes, as first-time buyers, we needed help and guidance in the process of buying a home and needed some extra insight to understand the legal documents and court proceedings as we choose to bid on and win a Probate sale that was subject to overbid. Ginette made herself available for any questions I had and walked me through the paperwork so I fully understood what we were signing and what the ramifications were of "going to court subject to court confirmation and overbid". She was with us every step of the way, including at the courthouse. She made sure we were comfortable and was always honest in her assessment of the value of properties when we asked. It was a tough market and I decided to buy at that time really paid off. We plan on working with Ginette in the future and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

EXCEPTIONALLY DETAIL-ORIENTED

Ginette Skelton assisted me with a difficult probate sale located in Pico Rivera. She was a very knowledgeable Realtor® and I appreciated her genuine interest, compassion, and desire to help through what we both recognized upfront would not be an ordinary sale, and one that could have ultimately been a trying ordeal. The property was sold quickly and for top dollar. In addition, she managed estate sale services, clean-out, and a tradesman for repairs. The beneficiaries of the estate were also very pleased with her results and regular communication. Throughout the process, Ginette and her team were exceptionally patient, professional, and detail-oriented. Ginette is blessed with a good sense of humor, which was especially appreciated with this transaction. I highly recommend Ginette Skelton if you are thinking of buying or selling real estate.
