JUST SOLD ~ 1117 Sawmill Gulch Road, Pebble Beach, CA

I love happy sellers!!  I recently represented the sellers of 1117 Sawmill Gulch Road in Pebble Beach.  The sellers were ecstatic with multiple offers and a full price offer.   Congratulations, Leonora and Sam!

This is what Leonora had to say . . .

Over the years I have bought and sold a number of houses in Maryland, California, Texas and Colorado. The real estate agents I have worked with have been knowledgeable and professional. And I have been satisfied with all of them. But Susan Clark stands out for qualities that are above and beyond normal agents.
In her sales pitch Susan Clark explained up front what she would do as our selling agent. Her promises were clear and compelling. Communication was at the top of the list. We would always know what was going on – good news or bad. Her follow up after every open house and every viewing was thorough and valuable. It wasn’t just a “not interested” comment but useful information.
Advertising was also near the top of the list. We appreciated how she used current technology to gain the greatest exposure from websites, professional photography, video complete with drone fly-over, social media to name just a few. The presentation and content were stunning. But advertising was not just passive. It was active, too, with weekly open houses and broker open houses.
Susan Clark’s professional appearance was complimented by her professional manner. She maintained an attitude of confidence and commitment to details that earned the best possible relationship between possible buyers and this seller.
Susan assisted us with decisions we made and guided us through the complex process of setting an asking price, handled offers and counter offers, and advised us during negotiations. After receiving three offers at once and after we accepted one of them (at full price) she urged us to accept a back-up offer which we did. Susan also continued to hold open houses. That led to the buyer removing contingencies without making too many demands for repairs.
To summarize, Susan Clark is the very essence of a great real estate agent whom I highly recommend.

#Remodeling your kitchen in your #Carmel or #Pebble Beach home

One of the most important things you can do to improve the value of your home is to remodel your kitchen.  How do you decide how to start?  First look at the many kitchen design ideas to find out what appeals to you and if you are planning to sell you’ll want to also consider what will appeal to most buyers.

There should be a common theme throughout your home so it all flows and looks like it belongs together.  Does your home have a cottage feel or is it traditional or contemporary?

Now plan the layout of your kitchen.  Picture yourself cooking a meal in the kitchen and be sure you place the range, the prep area, and the refrigerator so it will be convenient to create that fantastic meal!

What type of materials will you use?  Butcher block counters or maybe granite, quartz, concrete or even carrara marble.


Other decisions to make . . .  storage, lighting, appliances, and even the kitchen sink!  Good luck!  Set a budget before you begin and have fun creating a special place in your home.
