Most of us don’t purchase or sell a home very many times during our lifetimes. That means the whole process can easily seem a bit overwhelming—determining a realistic selling price, negotiating between buyers and sellers, all those escrow details.
If you simply want to get it done, you couldn’t do better than working with Doug Speicher, Jr.. Yes, we’ve sold and purchased through other agents—and we’ve even done a few “by owner” deals ourselves. Using Doug as your real estate professional, though, means you’re getting the best service, the most-up-to-date info and the highest chance of making the whole thing as smooth as possible.
We worked with Doug in May 2017 to sell a home in Magalia. Before listing he gave us not only comps to help us determine the optimal listing price, but he outlined possible strategies for pricing, offered practical suggestions for prepping the home for listing and provided us with the various media and channels he’d use to give this listing the best exposure to buyers. While “your mileage may vary,” our home listed, Doug held an open house that same day and within six hours we had our first offer—a cash price with a 10-day escrow. While Doug certainly can’t guarantee that to everyone, we’re confident that his pre-listing preparations optimized our chances to sell this home quickly for $15,000 more than we’d planned. Wow!
Doug may be one of the Ridge’s “newer” agents, but that doesn’t mean he’s missing anything you’d get from a more “experienced” agent. In fact, Doug’s sheer exuberance and enthusiasm—combined with his depth of knowledge—demonstrated to us he really cared about selling our home and that it wasn’t just another listing. He followed through with everything he promised—and more. Doug’s communication skills are excellent; he kept us informed through every step of the process.
Whether buying or selling, we recommend Doug Speicher, Jr. wholeheartedly.
