"I have worked with Jeremy and Jennifer for years as a home inspector. When I was in need of an agent I had the pick of literally dozens of agents and I chose Holmes and Holmes to help me sell a rental. Their professionalism and knowledge impressed me and the home was sold quickly for my asked price. Holmes and Holmes made the process painless." -Mike B.

 

Selling a home can be one of life's most stressful events but it doesn't have to be!

Unfortunately, selling a home is usually accompanied by other stressors such as; Divorce, Relocation, Death of a Family Member or a Job Change. At Holmes & Holmes, our goal is to work with you to minimize the stress and hopefully make it as pleasant an experience as possible!  

For most of us, our home is the single most expensive asset we own. We want to protect that asset and realize the maximum return on our investment. Selecting how to proceed with the sale of real estate will determine the success or failure of this important life event.

Whether a seasoned veteran of real estate or a first time home seller these are some of the important factors to consider in determining who will represent you with this financial transaction:
