SELLING PRICE $70,000 DOLLARS OVER In March I became the Successor Trustee to by mother and father-in-law’s estate. Ginette Skelton of Berkshire Hathaway H. S. 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 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…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.
