1. Negotiating the Offer
The fact is, the Beacon Hill real estate broker seller agent must be a better negotiator than the Buyer and the Buyer’s agent; simply put, you need a proven negotiator on your side.

2. The Purchase and Sale Contract
The Purchase and Sale Agreement (P&S) is a valid contract with the buyer for the sale of your home. It’s important that your agent fully reviews and scrutinizes the contract to ensure your best interests. Failure to do so may be costly. As a full-service agent with an analytical background, I’ll make sure the contract is solid and accurate.

3. The Home Inspection
You’ll need to understand the importance of the home inspection contingency, as this is the number one reason why Beacon Hill home sales fail. I will proactively work and communicate with the Buyer’s agent during this process. Also, I’ll help you to make your home “inspection friendly”.

4. Re-Negotiating the Offer Buyers
Beacon Hill condo buyers may try to re-negotiate large sums of money and new conditions as a result of the home inspection. Again, you need an agent who’ll go to bat for you to negotiate on your behalf.

5. Buyer’s Loan Application
You’ll need to understand the importance of the buyer’s loan contingency as this is the number two reason why home sales fail. I will proactively work and communicate with the Buyer’s agent to verify the buyer’s “good faith” in the loan application and approval process.

6. Appraisal
The appraisal is important as even a slight variance between the appraisal and purchase price can negatively affect the transaction. As a full-service agent, you can count on me to actively assist the appraiser.

7. Loan Commitment vs. Waiver of Financing Addendum
In many cases, a loan approval is conditional rather than fully committed prior to closing. It’s important to understand the buyer’s loan application status and to obtain a commitment when it comes time.

8. Closing Date / Recording Date
At times the buyer or the buyer’s lender may need to extend the closing date. By maintaining close participation with the buyer’s agent, I’ll be able to anticipate and negotiate on your behalf when this occurs.

9. Final Week of Closing
Issues can arise during the final week that can jeopardize the Beacon Hill condo for sale transaction. I’ll ensure that it’s a smooth week. Note, the signing date and closing date are different. Generally, closing occurs several days after signing, when the loan has been funded and recorded by the county.

10. Possession
You’ll need to understand the implications of the possession date and how best to structure it for your needs. 

11. First Week After Possession
At times Beacon Hill condo buyers will discover things they thought were supposed be left behind or something that isn’t in proper working condition. My proactive approach during the sale and prior to closing will help prevent these situations from arising.

12. The First Year After Closing
With solid representation & recommendations, we can help prevent other issues that can come up throughout the year.
As your Beacon Hill condo agent, I provide all these services to you prior to, and during, the closing of your sale. I will give your 100% of my commitment until we achieve your goals.


As your Beacon Hill condo real estate broker, I’ll provide all these services to you subsequent to, and during, the closing of your sale. I will give your 100% of my commitment until we achieve your goals.
