FishHawk Ranch Sold HomeSelling Your Home

Selling your FishHawk Ranch or Tampa Bay area home can be an intimidating and emotional process.

The real estate market has changed considerably over the last few years. Long gone are the days where a real estate agent can just stick a for sale sign in the yard, put a home listing in the MLS, place an ad in the local newspaper and expect to get the best possible offer for your home. Today, having a comprehensive marketing plan is a must!

When selling your FishHawk home you need to have a top producing REALTOR® that will get the job done! I am a longtime FishHawk Ranch resident and have been selling homes in and around the Tampa Bay area for over 10 years. In addition to that, I have been involved in real estate as either an investor or a REALTOR® for over 30 years! Having someone in your corner with all those years of real estate experience is priceless!

One of most important aspects to selling a home for top dollar in today’s connected world is by creating a dominant online presence. At best, there are a handful of agents in the Tampa Bay area that truly understand and use the power and reach of the Internet to get homes sold! If you really want to sell your FishHawk Ranch or Tampa Bay area home for top dollar it pays to hire a savvy Internet marketing specialist that is an expert FishHawk REALTOR®. Look no further, here is what sets me apart from the rest of the pack!

8 Week Marketing Campaign

You only have one chance to make a first impression with any potential buyer. This 8 week marketing campaign rests on the buyer’s ability to find your property online and to find it with the right information.

The campaign includes pre-launch activities that are designed to seed the marketplace and position your property for the best possible impression right from the start.

Launch activities build on the pre-launch phase by announcing your property using a combination of online and offline channels.

Throughout the campaign cycle I will be analyzing the effectiveness of the campaign and make any modifications as needed.

This campaign is amazing in getting your property seen by every potential buyer for your home. During our listing appointment and interview I will be happy to go over this campaign in full detail with you.

The Maximum Exposure Power Marketing System

Selling your FishHawk home for top dollar in the shortest amount of time is really what sets me apart from the crowd. How do I do it? It’s called the Maximum Exposure Power Marketing System. This unique system gets homes sold! Your home will receive the maximum exposure possible ensuring that you will receive the absolute highest possible offer for your home!

The Maximum Exposure Power Marketing System consists of:

  • Price
  • Marketing
  • Quality
  • Local Knowledge
  • Experience and Expertise
  • Safety


Pricing your home is one of the most critical factors in getting your home sold for top dollar! The most common mistake that causes sellers to get less money than they hoped for is listing the home for too much money to start with. Listings reach the greatest number of potential buyers right after they are listed for sale. If a home is dismissed as being overpriced early on, it can result in multiple price reductions later.

I personally analyze and determine home values in FishHawk every day. As your FishHawk real estate market expert, I will help you determine what price your home is likely to sell for and more importantly the exact price to strategically list your home so it sells for top dollar.

When you hire me to sell your FishHawk home I will complete an in-depth Strategic Market Analysis just for you. This proprietary property analysis is more detailed and focused on your specific home than a normal Comparative Market Analysis. The Strategic Market Analysis will not only determine how your home compares to the other homes on the market in your area but it will strategically and accurately pinpoint the perfect price to list your home so it will sell for the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.


Over 90% of home buyers are using the Internet to search for homes. These home buyers use a variety of real estate websites to search for and find homes. I ensure that your listing will be there to greet each and every one of them. Your home will be aggressively marketed not only locally, but on a global scale.  Your listing will be placed on the most prominent real estate websites in the industry like, Trulia, Zillow and Additionally your home will be placed on over 350 more of the real estate industries top websites. Need more? Your home will get special care and attention on this website, my FishHawk Realtor Twitter page with over 5500 followers, my FishHawk Ranch Real Estate Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, Pinterest, Google Plus and its own individual website. Combined, all of these sites attract over 1,600,000 potential home buyers each and every day!

Let’s look at the power and reach of the Internet. Here is an example of one of the properties I marketed online. Please look at the number of people the property reached.

example of an online marketed property

An impressive 14,488 people saw this property. I guarantee you that a local newspaper ad could never reach that many potential buyers! The Internet has some other very powerful advantages that a newspaper ad does not. It is immediate. Placing ad in the newspaper has deadlines and a waiting period before the ad shows up. Potentially you may have to wait 30 days for your ad to be in the local newspaper. It is editable. If you have a price change or status change on your home it can be updated on the Internet. It is sharable! This is the true power of online marketing. A newspaper reaches only the person that is reading it at that specific time. Items online can be shared and liked with others.

I get asked a lot about where the listing will be seen. The chart below shows you a small sampling of some of the real estate and social media websites where your listing will be seen.

So, where will your listing be seen? Simply, everywhere! There is no other FishHawk area REALTOR® that offers the same level of real estate marketing and property exposure that I provide to ALL of my sellers!


If you are looking to sell your home for the highest possible price only the best will do! That is why I hire only the best to produce the highest quality video tours, photographs and the new state-of-art 3D home walk through. It is really a great tool for out of the area buyers.

  • Photos – The photos of the home tell a story and in today’s online visual society only the highest quality, large, beautiful pictures will get a potential buyers attention!
  • Video – High quality video is going to be the next big revolution in real estate. YouTube is now the third most visited Internet website after Google and Facebook and its presence is growing every day. Video if done correctly can create an environment where a potential buyer thousands of miles away can get the experience and feel of actually viewing your home.
  • 3D Home Walk Through – This is really amazing technology. Out of area buyers can do a full walk through of your home with actually being here.

I am a proud longtime FishHawk Ranch resident and full-time FishHawk area REALTOR®. Being a longtime resident I know the local FishHawk area very well. Understanding the local neighborhoods, schools, amenities, events and activities allows me to highlight local aspects of your home and effectively market and expose your home to the most qualified buyers.

When I list and sell your home you will be represented by someone who is passionate about FishHawk and understands why people love to live here. If you look around this website I hope you will find that I am a local FishHawk Ranch Real Estate expert. Selling FishHawk area homes is my specialty and I will use this local knowledge to get your home sold, for the absolute best possible price, in the shortest amount of time!

Experience and Expertise

I’ve been involved in the real estate industry since the 1980’s. Originally from New Jersey, I was partners in a real estate investment company called Real Investors. We bought, sold and built investment properties. I learned a lot about the real estate market, investing, home renovations and ugh, 18% interest rates! It was a great experience and still drives my passion for real estate today.

I really don’t want to seem like I am bragging because that is not my style. Trust me, I’d rather be talking about your house than about me! Here is a screen shot from my Trulia page. Notice the 71 recent sold homes? It is now over 125 closed sides worth over $25,000,000. Why do I show this? Because something comes up with each and every home sale and without question experience really matters when selling something as important as your home!

Please, please, please do not let anyone that you list your home with use a combination lock to secure your home. Insist on the latest Supra iBox technology that can only be accessed using an electronic key coded to that agent. When using the Supra lockbox the listing agent can see exactly who and at what times the lockbox is accessed. Trust me with a combination lockbox the potential buyer can simply look over the agent’s shoulder and get the combination code. After everyone leaves they use that code to go back to the house and break in. Please protect yourself, your family and your assets, insist on a Supra lockbox. They are not cheap but I use one on every listing. Your safety is too important not to use one!
