Newcastle home sold for $27,000 over asking! Olympia WA

This beautiful home in the Newcastle neighborhood in the Olympia, WA school district was a hot property!  With multiple bids and even a back-up offer, this home sold for $27,000 over the asking price!

These sellers were experienced sellers and knew how important cleaning, staging and decluttering were in presenting a home to the market.  I didn’t even need to give them my speech about these three topics!

One secret the seller shared with me is she used baby oil on the stainless steel appliances to make them pop!  See the photo above – they look brand new.

The sellers also appreciated the work I did for them.  They would send me these positive text messages throughout the transaction like,

“Whoohooo!  Thank you, Super Woman!”


“Francine is a genius!”  (Okay, that one was about how the whole-house fan works, but I’ll still take that compliment!)


“You just made my day even better!! Thank you so much for helping me out!!”

Although this was an exciting process, the sellers knew this took a lot of work on everyone’s part to get this not only closed, but closed successfully with minimal issues.

This is what differentiates Realtors from each other.  Any realtor may be able to close a transaction but HOW that is accomplished is the difference.  Do you want a great experience?  Or do you want a hair-pulling-not-getting-any-sleep experience?  This is why it MATTERS who you choose to represent YOU in your home sale.  

Call me today and let’s chat about how you can have a great sales experience, too!
