This often-daunting question is one that can be softened by being represented by the person who will relentlessly pursue, and deliver, the results you are looking for. A person who will go over and above the status quo.
That someone, is me.
It is crucial for sellers to ensure that any potential buyer is pre-qualified or pre-approved, as there is a great deal of risk involved in accepting offers from a buyer who has not yet been deemed eligible. The risk presents itself in the event of the deal falling through due to the buyer not being able to attain a mortgage, as there would be a considerable amount of time lost. Not only could you have sold your house to someone who was in fact pre-approved, but you will have lost valuable time.
Evidently, a pre-qualified and pre-approved buyer is in a much stronger position to successfully purchase a home. Having said that, one must also be mindful of the fact that being pre-approved does not guarantee a mortgage, as there are additional factors that impact the final mortgage allocation, including (but not limited to) the following:

The Consultation - What's Your Motivation?
Selling a home is a big decision, and is often daunting when you consider the magnitude of the financial and emotional investment. For this reason, I am fully committed and invested in ensuring that my clients not only achieve their goals with selling, but also enjoy the experience of transitioning into a new chapter in their lives.
Beginning with the consultation, we will have an open discussion to gain an understanding of the motivation behind the decision to sell, which will directly translate into a customized plan of action.
I will then present you with my creative listing presentation, detailing the many ways I go above and beyond the industry standard here in Calgary.
The CMA - What are we working with
As a part of my boutique services, I provide a complimentary free Comparative Market Analysis to every client. Following a walk through of your home, we will have an additional discussion. This is where I go above and beyond.
By having the client highlight the unique features of their home that may be overlooked at first glance, paired with an explanation of how and why they became emotionally attached to the home, I can leverage these characteristics to get an exclusive perspective on their home. Furthermore, my extensive knowledge of the real estate market in Calgary will ensure the home is strategically placed to get the most desirable outcome.
The Marketing - Lets Get Creative
This is where one will notice the Sherrard Difference, and be exposed to innovative strategies that will not be found elsewhere.
The foundation of my marketing plan is to marry traditional and creative methods. Leveraging innovative strategies ensures my client’s home reaches the most potential buyers in a very targeted manner, driving unparalleled attention and results.
I am a firm believer in focusing on active marketing over passive marketing. The difference is significant, as my active marketing strategies will ensure your home is being marketed in a multitude of ways to potential buyers 24/7.
The Negotiation - Locking It Down
Once offers are placed, and you have decided on one that has the potential to fulfill the desired outcome, this is where I shine.
Combining my assertiveness and acute focus with my creative, powerful, and strategic negotiation skills, my goal is to negotiate the best offer and terms to the you the most out of your home.
