As an experienced salesman, Gary was confident that if he could find the right listing platform that offered support throughout the home sale process, he could handle showings and answer buyer questions. Gary found Home Bay and it was the perfect fit! Here’s his story.
Gary and his wife shared a beautiful family home with their two children in San Rafael for 15 years. When they became empty nesters earlier this year, they decided it was time to move into a smaller property that would be a better fit for their new lifestyle.
Gary decided to start the process by reaching out to a few listing agents in his area to see who would be the best fit to help him sell his property. He had previously sold a property through an agent, so it seemed like the most logical first step.
However, after conducting three seperate interviews, Gary started to second guess his approach. He didn’t feel like he was getting enough value from the agents he spoke with to justify the cost of the commission.
Determined to find a better way, Gary decided to pursue selling his property himself. With years of experience in sales and a high level of motivation, Gary was confident he could effectively market his property on his own with a little guidance.
That’s when he found Home Bay (or, as he says, Home Bay found him). Impressed by our simple, straightforward approach to home sales, he decided to give us a shot.
The Listing Process:
Right off the bat, Gary was impressed with how easy it was to get his home listed on the MLS. He was also thrilled to learn HomeBay automatically lists all properties added to the system on additional real estate sites like Redfin and Realtor.com.Going through the process once, rather than manually adding his property to site after site, was a huge time saver that allowed him to easily reach hundreds of local home shoppers.
Fast, Reliable Service:
When asked what he found to be the most valuable aspect of HomeBay, Gary immediately responded with “excellent service.” Gary knew he had access to a highly qualified team of real estate transaction professionals, but he was blown away when he realized he could ask questions at any time and he would get concise answers within minutes. “When you’re in the middle of the selling process, even just 24 hours can feel like an eternity – so having fast, reliable support is a life-saver when you have a question,” said Gary.
