Kristen earned her CNE and has extensive knowledge of many negotiation techniques and understands the psychology of buying and the process of how people make purchase decisions. All with the intention of achieving the best outcome for you!
  • CMA- Kristen and Nick met in their previous careers as public accounts that background combined with two decades of local real estate experience, create the foundation of accuracy in our competitive market analyses or “CMAs”. Foundationally, we approach valuation like an appraiser would do, but we are not constrained by regulation that inhibits making certain subjective adjustments. We identify the most similar sales based on market knowledge. We adjust parameters for which sales we choose based on the circumstances. Sometimes we may go back further in time, sometimes we will limit the geographical scope more narrowly, or make other qualitative decisions in selecting comparable sales (“comps”). Once we select the highest quality comps (quality meaning most similar or most informing of value), we break down each sale mathematically much like an appraiser would do. Once we’ve removed furnishing value from the sales, adjusted for marginal square footage, and have established a same size comparison, we then complete more subjective adjustments. At face value some of the adjustments may sound arbitrary but it’s the experience with buyers and knowing what drives value in this market that informs our adjustments. If your home is close to a trail system for example while a comp was not in an area well served by trails, this has value and deserves to be not only added, but quantified as most prospective buyers would value this element. We will make adjustments for factors like view, age, quality of construction, floorplan, garage differences, unfinished space, proximity to amenities, finishes, and any other factors we know impacts a property’s value.
  • We then average all of the adjusted sales to come up with a suggested unfurnished value which often sets the stage for internal debate and final adjustments to the conclusion. The value yielded from this process is a guiding data point, but we then provide a narrative analysis of the market, its trends, and eventually we provide thoughts on pricing strategy. A number of factors including your own situation come into play, and we typically provide two or three pricing scenarios and describe the merits and shortcomings of each. Other components of our analysis include a high level summary of our marketing systems, fee structure, company information and if necessary additional information about our team. We deliver this analysis package via email and allow our potential listing clients the chance to read, review and then discuss the analysis with us in any level of detail you want. We’ve then provided our opinion and our clients can use this information for decision making, whether that is to move forward with listing and marketing, waiting for a more opportune time of year, or waiting for market dynamics to align.
  • Our approach is one of trying to be as accurate as absolutely possible so that our clients can make the most informed decisions about their real estate asset. Our analyses are typically 3-5 pages of narrative plus a quant matrix with our analysis math. We will not adjust our analysis or inflate our conclusion with the intention of landing a listing or provided a higher number than a competitor. This compromises our credibility, our trust from our clients, and can often result in frustration and not reaching our client’s goals for a sale. We approach property analysis as a trusted advisor with fiduciary responsibilities and have found that by advising our clients based on the knowledge we’ve gained over the years, treating you like a partner, that we will have a much higher chance of success and will achieve a higher sales price in the process.
