How I Can Help

Not all homes necessitate updates or enhancements. Financial constraints may hinder such endeavors, particularly in divorce situations. Acknowledging these limitations, I specialize in offering diverse strategies to sellers, aiming to minimize cost and maximize return on investments.

I possess resources to assist in securing funding for anything from small, cosmetic improvements to larger renovations or updates. This includes addressing unforeseen issues identified on inspection reports. I assist the sellers in assessing whether the return on investment justifies the expenditure of money, time, or effort. Leveraging my network and experience in divorce cases helps alleviate client anxiety and ensures optimal decision making tailored to their needs.

A Commitment to Service

Enhancing a property through strategic improvements can significantly increase its selling price and expedite the sales process. With my expertise and resources, I assist clients as they choose the optimal approach for their situation. Recognizing the urgency in situations such as divorce or probate, I prioritize maximizing returns on investments in a timely manner.

Prioritize Improvements:

Guide the clients on which improvements or repairs are most likely to increase their home’s value. Often, minor cosmetic updates can make a substantial difference.

Cost vs. Benefit Analysis:

Help clients understand which improvements are worth the investment by comparing the potential increase in home value to the cost of the improvements.

Professional Consultation:

For more significant renovations, it may be beneficial to consult with designers or contractors who can provide expert advice and cost estimates.

Market Trends:

Keep abreast of current market trends in home features and technology to advise clients on the most sought-after updates that could boost their return on investment.


Recommend professional staging services to showcase the home’s potential and help buyers envision themselves living in the space.

Pre-Listing Inspection:

Advise on getting a prelisting inspection to uncover any issues that could impede the sale or negotiation process.
