During this time your MARvelous agent will be executing our Marketing Plan ensuring your property has the maximum amount of exposure to ensure a successful sale, coordinating showings and updating you with feedback from agents and buyers.
Accepting an Offer
Once showings start rolling in and you have received an offer, your MARvelous agent will review the terms and contract details thoroughly and present to you for a decision. Your agent will be there to guide you to make a knowledgeable decision that best fits YOUR needs and goals. At this point, you can decide to accept, counter back with negotiations or reject the offer completely. You will be made aware of each option available to you.
Inspections, Repairs and Appraisals...oh, my!
These can all be very anxious steps in the sales process, and vary from each transaction to the next, but don't fear, your MARvelous agent will be able to guide in the right direction and connect you with the proper professionals that can complete items in a timely manner, if needed.
Once inspections, repairs and appraisal are complete, the biggest hurdle has passed. It's now time to pack up, move out, clean house and schedule utilities and property services to be disconnected, etc.
As a seller, you will sign closing documents before the buyer does. This can typically be a day or two before the buyer signs. Your MARvelous agent will ensure a smooth closing coordination with your settlement company so that all the buyer needs to do is sign and seal the deal!
Final walkthrough has been completed, the buyer attends their own separate closing appointment, sealing the deal and transferring keys! NOW is time to celebrate...you just SOLD your property!!!

I have always been a FSBO guy for selling my homes. However in my most recent purchase of a condo I worked with Loraine as my buyers agent and she was wonderful. Not only was she extremely responsive and advocating for us, she was a joy to be around ~ James Heyman
Tanesha is the best realtor that we have worked with...and our family has 20 military moves behind us. We interviewed 5 other agents from other companies. Tanesha was the most prepared in her pre sale analysis of our property. She had an aggressive marketing campaign. We had 2 full priced offers within 6 days and could not be happier with Tanesha's professionalism and attention to detail. She also showed a lot of sensitivity in working with my 85 year old father who needed extra help with understanding the details and follow up! Five stars! If you want your home sold...call Tanesha! - Yorktown Seller, 2018
After living in the area for over 2 years my wife and I were ready to buy. We called Heath on a Wednesday and had a signed and accepted contract by Friday. He got the deal we needed and went to great lengths to make the process easy. My wife and I would highly recommend Heath. ~ Seller, MFI24
Mary is a great agent and has been beyond helpful with the selling of our old home and buying our new one. She has been there every step of the way and was available whenever we had questions. I would highly recommend her and her company Mid-Atlantic to anyone that is buying or selling ~ Saundra Beltz
Heatherly is an absolute master of her craft. She was very attentive, and I could call her anytime with questions. With her extraordinary work ethic and real estate expertise, my home buying experience went very smoothly ~ Logan Bauder
Lorraine has assisted us with selling two homes and purchasing two homes. Her professionalism and personal care made a huge difference in ensuring this was a smooth process. During the course of several years, Lorraine has shown us dozens of homes until we finally settled into our forever home ~ Deb Vollmer
Lorraine helped me buy and sell a home. She is very professional, friendly, and informative. She's stays in very close contact through various formats. She know's most, if not all, of the Hampton Roads area. ~ Tyler Muraca
Lorraine has excellent attention to detail and does an extremely thorough job at researching all avenues to get the best price for your home, whether buying or selling. Her advice and guidance during the largest purchase of our lives was invaluable! She is not only our realtor for life but a friend for life. ~ Stewart Family
Lorraine was great to work with. She was always helpful, professional and prompt. I was very impressed with her area home comparisons and she was spot on the pricing. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of listing or buying a home. ~ C Horne
Lorraine has represented us for buying and selling a property. She is very professional and and keeps in close contact providing expert advice through the process. She grew up in the area and is very knowledgeable regarding the local markets and area. She understands the different cities and part of the cities that make up the Peninsula Area and how all the factors of location within cities affect market pricing of both the buying and selling of a home. The first house she sold for us had two full price offers in less than 24 hours. A great agent to work with, we highly recommend her. ~ Susan Gunter
The 3 Main Reasons a Property Sells:
The right price can only be determined by a well-researched market evaluation considering multiple factors. A Mid-Atlantic Residential Real Estate Professional will give you a written market analysis comparing your home to similar properties that have recently sold and that are currently on the market.
Your home’s condition is vital to a sale. Many sellers will elect to have a Professional Home Inspection conducted prior to listing their home to get a jumpstart on addressing any unknown conditions that may later surface in future inspections. A clean, well maintained home enjoys a competitive edge over all the other homes on the market. Your agent will suggest improvements that aid in the “showability” of your home. By accomplishing most of these suggestions, you will impress potential buyers as they tour your home. You’ll sell faster and at a higher price if you “Stage” your home to enhance its appeal. An Associate at Mid-Atlantic Residential will make staging recommendations to best showcase your home.
