“On April 9, 2013 the sale of my condominium in West Hollywood closed, for a price well above the list price, due in no small part to the stellar work of my real estate agent, Hilary Stevens. At the moment Los Angeles and particularly West Hollywood is by many counts a seller’s market and many may think that makes the job of your selling agent easy, or at the very least just a quick buck since buyer’s will be lining up at your door. The truth couldn’t be further from the reality, which is this: a good agent will maximize your returns through a complete process that employs their skills and experience.
In my case, my condo needed some renovations: new paint, cabinet hardware, lights and other details that would make it a truly turn-key property for the new owner. Hilary consulted with me on this and was there for me when it came to time to making decisions on what to do that would appeal to a new owner and maximize my returns.
Hilary also contributed greatly to staging the property with an eye towards both photography and the actual open houses. Hilary’s combination of experience and good taste made it possible for me to have a property listed that typically garnered remarks similar to this: “It’s just perfect.”
