If you’re thinking of selling your home in the English Hill area, Tony Meier is the first person you should meet with. As you then meet with other brokers, you’ll quickly realize that no one is as in-touch with the English Hill real estate market as Tony is. Tony recently guided us through the sale of our home and we couldn’t be more pleased. Tony’s thorough knowledge of the English Hill real estate market helped him to recommend the optimal listing price. Sure, other brokers might have recommended a higher listing price, but Tony priced the house at a fair price that attracted a lot of interest and multiple offers. Ultimately, our house sold for $30K over the listing price and at a time of year when the market was beginning to slow for the summer. We have friends who also sold their English Hill home recently. They decided to go with another broker who recommended a top-dollar listing price. The property had very little action until they lowered the asking price to a level very close to what Tony had recommended, after which the house sold. The point is, no one knows the English Hill market better than Tony and he will get you results that you’ll be pleased with.
In addition, Tony’s help through the entire process was invaluable. He helped us to identify what changes needed to be made to ready the home for sale. He was available to meet with us any time we had questions. He even accompanied my wife to a cabinet store in Tukwila to check out some cabinets and counter tops. His recommendations were invaluable. When we were ready to list, Tony prepared marketing materials (photos, videos, flyers, etc.) that presented the home in its best light. He held a neighborhood open house the first Saturday after the home went on the market. As a result of his efforts, offers began pouring in. Tony kept us informed every step of the way. In less than a week, we were meeting with him to review the multiple offers received. Again, Tony’s knowledge and experience were invaluable in reviewing the offers and selecting the winning bid. Tony’s work didn’t stop after offer acceptance. Instead, he shepherded the sale through closing, keeping us informed at every step.
As stated earlier, we couldn’t be more pleased with the results that Tony achieved. We were moving out of state (in fact, I had already started a new job) so it was important that we complete our sale as quickly as possible. No one likes to pay a $40K commission, but Tony really earns his commission! I’m confident that if we had tried to sell the home ourselves or listed with a discount broker, we would not have achieved the results that Tony delivered. Thank you, Tony!
