How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. That old line came to mind when I first was introduced to this Lincoln Village home that recently sold.
We listed this home at the end of 2019, but the story started a little over a year ago. We were working on another home in Stockton a few blocks away doing estate sales and cleaning it up (This Longview house). A friend from high school saw the work we were doing on a Facebook post and reached out to me to see if I was interested in helping their family with their estate home sale. This home was in better shape than the home on Longveiw ave., but there would still be a lot to do.
They were ready to move forward in October. The first time we met, everything seemed a little overwhelming. The house was full of furniture and decades worth of belongings to straighten out or sell before we could get the house on the market. Both of my clients, my wife and I all worked together. We made a great team! After the family went through and picked out all of their keepsakes, we sorted through everything else together and then had a series of estate sales. After the first couple of sales, we dropped prices considerably and by the last day, there was not much left. We were able to donate most of the remaining items to charity. The rest was relatively easy. We put the home on the market and it sold quickly.
Here is what my new friends had to say:
Raymond Henson helped us prepare my mother-in-law’s home for sale. He and his wife, Mary Margaret, helped us clean out the house and helped us with the estate sale. Tom and I did not no where or how to start so Ray’s experience and help made us feel less overwhelmed. Ray helped sell the house in less than three months! He gave us a time line of what to expect next and explained if we did not understand. An awesome Realtor!!!
Ray did a fantastic job job in selling my mothers house for me and my wife. i would recommend him for anything related to the sale of your home.I think he and his wife went far beyond what he was hired for, to help us sell and get through all the paper work. I would recommend him for any job that he does.
If you have a house that you are ready to sell, I would be glad to help. .It is a big job so reach out a few months before you are ready to sell. It makes the process less stressful.
