Your family is growing… You got a great promotion… The value of your current home has skyrocketed… They’re all good reasons for making a move. Maybe the kids have left home—or you just want to try someplace different.
No matter why you’re thinking about moving, you’ll want to start by talking with a professional real estate agent, who can give you an idea of what your current home might be worth and any changes that might make your home more marketable. Staging your home—adding a fresh coat of paint, cleaning out clutter and arranging furnishings to show each room at its best—can often help you get a better price. So can sprucing up landscaping to add “curb appeal”.
When you list your home with an agent, that individual works on your behalf to market your home to potential buyers—so it’s a very important relationship. Be sure to select someone with a track record of success in your area—and a solid knowledge of pricing in your local market. Real estate agents who are affiliated with larger firms can promote your property to colleagues or peers in their organization who might have clients who are looking for a home just like the one you want to sell.
It’s also a good idea to get prequalified for a mortgage, so you know how much you’ll have to spend when you start looking for you next home. The agent who is selling your home can help you find just the right place, or you may want to work with someone who specializes as a buyer’s agent.

~ J. Z.
I just wanted to share my amazing experience with buying a condominium with some incredible people at Prudential Fox & Roach/Trident Mortgage. During a life transition, I found the perfect place for me to live with Johanna Erwin and Kathryn Behm's help. From the beginning, they were so kind and accommodating and catered to my life circumstance to help me achieve my goal of buying a new home. Johanna moved with such speed and persistence in helping me get everything ready, that it was easy. After I placed a bid on the condominium, they gave me a calendar of all the upcoming events with a day-by-day activity list of things that needed to be achieved for the transaction to be completed in a timely manner.
It was about one month from the time that Dennis Kinslow helped accurately analyze my financial situation and Linda Brautigam started my credit check until the time that settlement occurred. How fast was that? Never heard of such speed in the mortgage industry before. Then the settlement finished in about an hour, since I had already completed a walk through.
I can't say enough praises about Johanna, Kathryn, Dennis and Linda. They have been so fabulous!!! They are a dream team that moves like a well-oiled machine.
I especially thank Linda in her diligence in following up with all the many, many last minute details in the final preparations moving towards settlement.
It's amazing seeing perfection in action when all the steps to conclusions are not fixed, but moving.
Well, thank you again for having a superb team of highly talented people who work with tireless effort and precision in your company.
Their hard work changed my life for the better.
