Your Central Ky Realtor! Homes for sale in Central, Ky!
What is my value I bring to you?
I use the 3-Step Formula!
Three basic things I do as a good agent to succeed where other agents may fail.
1) Improve the Marketing!
b)Write better descriptions
c)Perform an in-dept "Marketing Analysis" this helps identify marketing opportunities other agents may miss.
2) Solve any problems holding back a sale. Good agents are problem solvers.
3) Improving the showing condition of a home!
a)A staged home will sell for 10 to 15% more
b)Spotless and getting rid of clutter is the name of the game
Even a great home can't sell itself without proper marketing!
1) I follow the principle, buyers will focus on 20 percent of your home's features. The other 80 percent are probably common to other homes.
2) For advertising, I will hire a professional to photograph your home in a way that emphasizes its best unique features.
3) I help with staging your home to look visually appealing and that can be the secret to selling a home for more money.
4) I can't emphasize enough that spotless and getting rid of clutter is the name of the game!
5) Potential buyers want appliances included and will pay more for them, especially if they are new or at least in excellent condition.
6) Buyers establish interest in the first eight seconds.
7) Give buyers great storage and you've won their hearts.
Using me as your Listing Agent my gift to you is "I will purchase a 1st year "Home Warranty" for your buyers to help sell your home. (excludes FSBO Flat Fee Listings)
I want you to have a great experience in listing your home and using me as your agent. My goal is to be your realtor for life!
Recommendations and Referrals are the core of my business and
always greatly appreciated.

Putting it Together
Plum Tree Realty is a premier real estate marketing company focused on helping buyers and sellers get the highest level of real estate services. We help home owners, for instance, who have homes for sale in Mason, Ohio to price their homes in a competitive way since the market is growing in such a fast rate in that area. When a buyer is looking for West Chester, Ohio real estate for sale, we can guide them to the very best deals that are available, and we can give them expert advice as they make such a huge purchase. We cover all of the major real estate markets of the Greater Cincinnati including the following hot markets:
Cincinnati, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
West Chester, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Madeira, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Monroe, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Indian Hill, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Hyde Park, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Blue Ash, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Lebanon, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Loveland, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Fairfield, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Hamilton, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Liberty Township, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Kenwood, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
Mount Adams, OH Real Estate (homes for sale)
While some people search for homes according to the suburb names, others are very interested in the top school districts in the area such as homes for sale in Mason School District, homes for sale in the Lakota School District, homes for sale in the Wyoming school district, homes for sale in the Sycamore school district, homes for sale in the Monroe School District, and more. Our agents are highly-skilled in placing families in the best school districts in Cincinnati according to the desires of each family involved.
Of course, we also have great skill in helping buyers and investors find foreclosures, short sales, bank owned homes, and other great investment properties in the Greater Cincinnati Metro Area as well. Many of our agents are investors themselves, so they are great at helping other investors be the first one to the "golden egg."
We also have agents who specialize in helping families who are relocating to Cincinnati, Mason, West Chester, Blue Ash, Madeira, and any of the other regions in Southwest Ohio. It's great to have "feet on the ground" when you are looking to make such a move.
Plum Tree Realty has also become quite a favorite company for those who like to try to sell their home as a For Sale By Owner in Cincinnati as well. The reason for this is that we offer a $500 flat-fee listing to home owners who would like to sell as a FSBO, but they would also like to have a presence on the Cincinnati MLS search for homes for sale. Most FSBOs miss that exposure, but for just $500, we can help them get listed on the Cincinnati MLS and find buyers at the speed of ... the internet!
While most brokerages feel they have the best agents in Cincinnati, we truly believe that we are at the top. Many larger companies like Sibcy Cline, Remax (RE/MAX), Coldwell Banker West Shell, Comey & Shepherd, and others are at a size that makes it difficult for them to react to the markets and changing times at a great speed. Since Plum Tree is smaller, we are able to respond to market conditions rapidly and efficiently which gives us a disting market advantage. Remember: "It's not the big who eat the small; it's the FAST who eat the SLOW!"
