SELLER TIPS:

Hi, I am Dasha. My value to you is in Marketing and Negotiations. I have been doing this over 10 years.

There are only 2 reasons a house doesn't sell...

  • Marketing
  • Price

My job is to make sure that every buyer and every agent with a qualified buyer in your price range looking to buy a house within a 15 mile radius knows about your house. The more people that come through the door, the more offers we would get. The more offers we better chance we have at negotiating the highest possible price.  

What the home will sell for depends a lot on my Marketing and Negotiation skills:

NEGOTIATION 

When you're looking for a partner to help you negotiate the complexities of selling a home, you've come to the right place. The experience, dedication and strong communication you'll receive here will help ensure the successful and profitable sale of your home:

1. Create Win-win situation - We will create a win for ourselves by making sure the other side believes they won.

2. Ability to walk away - we have to go into a negotiation with an abundance mentality. There is always another buyer and another home to buy. We should never settle until we are absolutely satisfied. 

I will never let you sell your home unless we are sure we haven't given away any of your money. 

I will never let you buy a home unless you are absolutely sure you love it. I will make sure to negotiate the best price and the best terms to make sure we never give away any of your money. 

3. Education on the process - I will walk you through the process of negotiation before we enter into a negotiation. 

4. We always present in person - Anything we can do to stand out is always a plus. If we want to get a house sold or buy a home that we love we have to meet in person with all parties. 

 

PRICING

Whats drives price is competition. We will discuss how to create competition and drive buyers to pay the highest possible price in person.

IF YOU WORK WITH THE LISTING AGENT - YOU DON'T GET THE REPRESENTATION YOU NEED. 

LISTING AGENT

#1 BRINGS HOME TO MARKET - FIDUCIARY DUTY IS TO REPRESENT THE INTERESTS OF THE SELLER.

#2 SELLER INTEREST - HIGHEST POSSIBLE PRICE

#3 WORKS AGAINST THE BUYER'S INTEREST

#4 COMMUNICATES EVERYTHING ABOUT BUYERS TO SELLER.

#5 COMMUNICATES BOTTOM LINE OF THE BUYER TO THE SELLER.

#6 THE SELLER SHOULD NEVER KNOW THE BUYER BOTTOM LINE.

"Daria is a shining star! She has incredible insights. A highly creative visionary, she can connect and provides valuable insights for the greatest impact! Daria did a tremendous job.

I have been waiting years for someone to “get me”. I have abandoned earlier partners, in progress, as they just did not express who I am. Daria understood who I was, right from the start. She pushed me to move forward and find whats right for me . Together, Daria and I were able to find whats right for me in very little time. I am so grateful to her for her generosity of spirit and her extremely dedicated and hard work! Daria pushed me to move forward. To cut out the “committee in my head and follow my instincts. She has amazing dedication and determination to ensure her projects are all you could hope for. She thinks on her feet, resolves issues and finds creative solutions with an inner calm that is very reassuring. At the same time, she really pushed me through, to make sure that I got the most out of her contributions.

I highly recommend Daria and her creative expertise! I am sure we will do more together. I look forward to all she will continue to do.
