When Buying or Selling Real Estate, there are many items to consider . It is important that you ‘The Customer’ have all the facts when making your decision on which company and agent to help you get to where you want to be. The Karie Parsons Team takes all this into consideration from the time that we first meet, to the closing process, and beyond. Karie is a SFR (Short Sale Foreclosure Realtor) and an ABR (Accredited Buyers Realtor).

Selling your home:

At the Listing Presentation, we will present to you the steps that we follow to market your home. Several of these are listed toward the bottom of the page. Some will be discussed in this document.

The first step to selling your home is scheduling an appointment to meet with us. Before the meeting we will preview homes for sale in your area. Knowing your competition is always valuable information.

In the initial meeting, we will do a walk through of your home and present a folder which we created with information from other homes that have sold or are listed in your neighborhood or area.

We will include items such as: the price of homes that have sold, are pending, and acitvely listed. We will review which homes impact your home’s selling price, average number of days the homes were on the market, what amenities the homes have; such are the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, type of floors and counter tops, finished basements, size of garage, lot size, plus many more items.

You will find that buyers are looking for homes with upgrades, or homes that need upgraded at a good price. But no matter where your home presents itself, we believe that a well staged home will sell faster and for more money. As a free service with your listings, we will walk through your home and make staging suggestions. These ideas do not always require money, and may be as simple as re-arranging furniture. In other situations, we may suggest painting a room, new carpet, or placing furniture and personal items in storage. We understand that budgets are tight, and selling a home is expensive. We will work with you to keep expenses down and to get the best return on your money.

At Reece and Nichols we have buyers and realtors that have registered on our web-site requesting homes like yours. We will email these individuals the first day of the listing and place the home on MLS. Next we will have other Realtors from Reece and Nichols tour your home, and give us professional suggestions for your listing.

Buying your home:

With buying a home several of the steps are similar to selling a home. In our first meeting we will discuss what it is you want in a home such as; preferred locations, purchase price, and loan approval process. Then we will set up an account for you on Reece and Nichols. is a web-site that will create and maintain a list of homes with your conditions.

Once we have narrowed down the search, we can schedule appointments, discuss and review homes in person, or by email. At this point we request a loan approval letter is complete and available. This will show listing agents that you are serious, and gives you more power during negotiations. Before making an offer we will do a market analysis to assess the sales for the area of the home. This will show what comparable homes are selling at. This will show the selling prices of comperable homes.


YOU are our priority. We believe that constant communication with you is imperative for a great working relationship. We work hard to keep you informed with the latest and most accurate information about your home and the real estate market in your area. At the same time we work hard to find the most effective ways to market your home to get it sold. Some of these tasks we perform include: listing your home with MLS and Reece and, constantly contacting other Realtors and Buyers, and reviewing the market in your area, informing you of the showings per home in your zip code, creating marketing materials for online and hard copy distribution.
