Caroline Van Straalen
Here are the things I can do for you:
Find your Next Perfect Home
I have lived in this beautiful area for many years, have had my kids go through local schools, and helped them get involved in local and varsity sports teams (go Lambert Longhorns!!) as well as a variety of local after-school activities. I have made a point of knowing this area inside and out! I will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter in retaining your homes' long term value. Unlike most agents, I choose to work with a limited number of buyers at one time which allows me to provide you with much more dedicated effort and support. I will spend time understanding the essential criteria you have for your ideal home, and will make the process of finding that home as easy and enjoyable as I can. I have moved several times, living in Canada, California and Georgia and I know the importance of a stress free home buying experience. I'll help you find your next perfect home and negotiate the best price for you.
Sell your Home Quickly for Top Dollar
When selling your home, you need someone who knows how to market it and how to negotiate a great price for you. I bring over 15 years of sales and marketing experience, experience running my own successful marketing company, working with some of the largest consumer companies in the world, along with extensive real estate training and expertise. I will provide you with an exceptional advertising plan to ensure we reach as broad a network of good quality buyers as possible, and I will apply strong negotiation skills to ensure we get the best price for your home. I’ll handle everything from getting your house listed, advertising your home, negotiating the purchase contract and supervising the inspection and closing. I chose to work with Coldwell Banker because they provide me with a strong network of partners and expertise. You don’t just get me, you get my entire team!. Coldwell Banker has the highest brand recognition in the market and our properties are shown on more websites than any other real estate company in the world. That gives you maximum exposure in a media that people turn to first when looking for their next home.
Consult on Proven Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. My team and I will make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
