Tips on Getting Your Home Ready to Sell

When conversing with real estate agents, you will often find that when they talk to you about buying real estate, they will refer to your purchase as a “home.” Yet if you are selling property, they will often refer to it as a “house.” There is a reason for this.

Testimonials

My wife and I have been investors in real estate for over 20 years. We have purchased property all over the country. Without a doubt Sam Francis has been the most professional reliable agent we've ever dealt with. She took care of details for us and made our purchases so smooth. Thank you,
~ Thanh D Lai
I met Sam in 1985 but did not buy a home from her until 1998 which was my first home. Her integrity resounds throughout both her personal as well as her professional life. I'm on my 3rd home with her. Seamless transactions.
~ Robert R
Sam Francis was referred to me by my agent in Cave Creek as she did not work in the Phoenix area. Sam helped me sell my mothers home. It was a difficult situation but Sam being the consummate optimist made the process fun & efficient. I would highly recommend Sam Francis.
~ Jack Davis
I had been working with another agent but after meeting Sam & seeing her quick response to my requests I decided to change agents. I have never been so happy. My dad needed a place right away but also wanted a deal! I'm a dentist so my time was limited but Sam took the time to look at everything for me and only brought me to the best homes. She made a stressful situation easy. We got the house we wanted for the price we wanted and were able to close in perfect time for Dad's arrival. I would highly recommend Sam Francis! Warmest Regards,
