Stephanie Smith is a top agent at Scott Brokers in Calabasas, CA. She provides her elite clientele with both the personal and professional attention required while maintaining and respecting your privacy.
Selling your home requires a strategy, marketing plan, and commitment.
Selling your home which is often your largest asset can cause financial turmoil and stress. It is our job to help you through the process, to help you to achieve the maximum price in the least amount of time with the least amount of hassle.
Getting the word out that your property is available for purchase to the right people is our first objective. Designing a targeted marketing campaign, unique to your property is how we achieve that.
The MLS (Multiple Listing Service): This is the most important service for active Real Estate agents keeping up to the minute data of every listed, pending and sold property in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Internet Marketing: We work to obtain maximum exposure for your property through multiple internet outlets including but not limited to Yahoo, Trulia, Realtor.com and Zillow. Statistics from the National Association of Realtors finds that over 80% of prospective buyers utilize the Internet during the purchasing.
Social Media: This is where we will put your social media copy once I write something.
For Sale Sign (optional): It is very important to have a for sale sign on the property. Buyers are actively tracking the market and are out driving through neighborhoods they plan to purchase in.
Personal property web sites: We have every property professionally photographed and build individual web sites for each of our listings.
Newspaper Ads: Advertising in the local papers exposes your home to the surrounding community attracting neighbors who might be looking to move up or who have friends and family looking to move into the area.
Color Media: We advertise in various color magazines, The Robb Report, Homes and Land, Distinctive Homes and Malibu Magazine. Our very exclusive properties photograph very well and we strive to create the image of a lifestyle that buyers are searching for.
Color Brochures: Incorporating beautiful photography into a color brochure, then distributing it to our extensive client email lists and to our colleagues, sets your property apart.
Broker’s Caravan: This is the time to show the home off, turn on the fireplaces, serve breakfast or lunch and leave the agents with a lasting impression. We only have a few minutes to make a lasting impression so it is important that everything in the home is ready for this preview.
Showings: Although we work as a team I consider it my primary job to personally show your home to all prospective buyers.
