LIST Testimonial: Beau and Sarah Genelin
Meet two of our wonderful clients, Beau & Sarah Genelin. The Genelin’s chose Melvin Upchurch, Co-Owner and Broker for LIST Birmingham, to be their agent in 2015 when they bought their first home. This year they decided to put their Homewood home on the market and, of course, called Melvin!
We asked them about their home buying and selling experiences:
They shared that they never realized how much emotion went into your first home. For them, they shared a special memory of hosting a Christmas Party for their friends and neighbors that first year in their new home. But most importantly, it was where they started their family with the birth of their daughter, Lila.
For selling their home they stated they just trusted Melvin and the LIST Team. The LIST staging consultant and Melvin told them exactly what to do to prep the home for putting it on the market. The professional photographer helped showcase the best features of the home. Melvin’s detailed analysis provided them with the optimum list price to take full advantage of the current market.
The results were 22 showings, 6 offers, and a final contract for $25,000 over the list price – all on the first day on the market.
When we asked what they planned to do with the extra $6,000 they pocketed due to the LIST Birmingham Full Service/Flat Fee model, they both teared up and said put it in savings for Lila.
“We’re putting that in a savings account for our daughter!” – Sarah Genelin
Well, there you have it, tears of joy!! Another Happy Ending for a satisfied LIST Birmingham client. We really are a better way to SELL!!!
