Having decided to sell our family home, like most others we initially approached local real estate agents to discuss the process. After initial discussions, and learning that the commission based charging would result in close to $30,000 commission being paid to the agent, we thought that there must be a better way, a way to keep more money in our pockets.
We researched the idea of selling our property privately and subsequently approached Emphasis Real Estate to assist us in selling our home privately.
We were fortunate to meet Mike Van Wagoner from Emphasis real estate. Mike negotiated with interested parties and ran the auction process for us. Throughout, we found Mike to be professional, thorough and always acted with our best interests in mind. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mike and Emphasis real estate to others looking for a very cost effective and professional means to sell their home.
On auction day we achieved a sale price well in excess of what we’re expecting, and a price hundreds of thousands of dollars higher than the local real estate agents had told us that they could achieve for us. For us, the results which Mike was able to provide us with were outstanding and we cannot thank him enough for making the sale process so easy and so profitable.
