I am pleased to provide this very high rating for Reed Allen. As estate trustees, my sister and I were in charge with the sale of my mom's home. My sister had a worked with reed previously. I interviewed two top performing agents for the commission and, as expected, they were both very similar in their marketing approach, knowledge of local neighbourhood context, current market conditions, and negotiation strategies. What differentiated Reed was his knowledge of probate requirements. He provided a written real estate valuation for probate purposes the same day, before he was awarded the commission. His opinion of value enabled us to apply for probate immediately.
Reed is a very good communicator. He was available to consult with us throughout the process and provided detailed answers to our questions. While we were waiting for probate, and prior hiring Reed, we received a private sale offer of $570,000 for the property. We asked Reed for his thoughts. It had been a couple of months since his probate evaluation. He offered to review any changes in the market since his preliminary evaluation. His recommendation was that, even with real estate fees, he could hit a home run, if not a grand slam, and realize a better price for mom's home!
As we prepared to go to market, Reed was very precise in laying out our options. During the sale period, Reed skillfully negotiated a preemptive offer, and the eight offers we received on closing day for a grand slam sale price of $715,000. We chose the right agent to represent us. No regrets. Thanks Reed
