It was a Saturday afternoon in January when Sue first received a call from Cara. Cara had driven from New York to Delray Beach to evict a non-paying tenant and was anxious about the state of the house. Cara had already concluded that she would need to sell the property as she was not able to personally monitor from a distance.
Sue met with Cara at the premises to conduct a preliminary walkthrough. The house would require a lot of work to be prepared for showings. Sue prioritised tasks that would generate a return on investment and alerted Cara to matters that didn’t warrant the work. Sue provided contact details for trusted services including roofing, plumbing, termite control, blind installer, bathtub refinisher, deck builder, cleaners, handyman and junk removal.
Within about 6 days the house was nearly ready and Sue returned to stage the house and brought a professional photographer. Sue provided a full market analysis and discussed a marketing plan with Cara; as Cara was not local she relied on Sue to deal with every aspect of the transaction.
Showing requests came in immediately; within 12 days of the initial meeting an offer close to the listing price had been received and the transaction was pending. It only took a further week for the buyers to complete their due diligence and close the contract.
Cara stated about her experience “Sue Leonard is in a class all her own. Beyond knowledgeable, beyond professional, beyond responsive, beyond trustworthy. She sold our home when we needed to evict non-paying tenants in Delray Beach in less than two weeks and we will be asking her to help us sell another home there soon. We do not live in Florida so we trusted her to handle every aspect of the transaction. Truly awesome.”
