Selling a home from 3,000 miles away
"Selling a home from 3,000 miles away seemed a daunting task until we talked to David Pitney. In the last 16 years we’ve worked with several REALTORS® and this was far and away the best working relationship and the best outcome we have experienced. The entire process, from deciding to sell to closing was completely seamless. As we were not present for any of the process, we had to trust that David was on top of everything and in fact he was. He was always available by email or phone, and kept us up to date, literally, sometimes hour-by-hour. After he sent us photos of the unit, we utilized his recommendations for demolition of a wall, painters, carpeting, and cleaning services to get our home sale-ready and each vendor recommended was efficient and professional. Throughout this process, David sent pictures of the progress. David staged our home and it looked lovely – he has an incredible eye for detail, and even took note of small things such as finding a replacement tray for the microwave when he noted it was broken. When we received the photo tour of the property he put together after the work was done, we were so pleased, all the work that was done was top notch and the place looked beautiful. David helped us to decide on a sale price, which was right in line with the current market. It was clear that he knows the market well, and is quite familiar with trends and assets in various neighborhoods. He was patient and kind in answering our many questions and was through in finding comps in our neighborhood. He also took care of all the Internet advertising, production of flyers, and hosting of the open houses. The price was right, and we were able to sell the house in only a few days to an eager buyer. In fact, we had multiple parties interested in buying our place after just the first open house! Finally, from the home inspection to escrow, to settlement, David took the responsibly for all the details so we didn’t have to. We were able to close from our home almost 3,000 miles away without a hitch. We were 100% pleased with our experience and it couldn’t have been easier. We stand ready to recommend David Pitney in the highest possible terms to fulfill a home buyer or seller’s needs."
