Selling Your Home

For most families, their home is their largest financial asset, and deciding to sell it is a big decision. When you're ready to sell it's important to have an experienced real estate professional handle the details involved in the successful sale of a home or summer lake house for top dollar. As an experienced professional who has helped many Southwestern Michigan residents sell their primary residence, as well as their summer vacation home, I know how to handle every aspect of the sales process - from strategically marketing and showcasing your home to making sure every obligation is met before the closing date.

Cressy & Everett is the only real estate company in the area to offer certain marketing tools:

  • Homes Magazine - are distributed throughout Southwestern Michigan.  No other home magazine offers every seller, every day exposure, and regional distribution like ours.  You home is featured every day, until sold.
  • Cressy & Everett is the only real estate company that will feature your home on The Cressy & Everett Real Estate Home Show.  We know the power of television and video.  This exclusive Home Show with You Tube gives buyers a new way to view homes. Weekend open houses will also be viewed here.
  • 92% of home buyers use the Internet in their home search.  That's why we offer a higher level of convenience with an ultra-fast format.  Additional national web sites such as,, Zillow, HGTV Frontdoor, and Trulia will also be used to market your home.
  • A Visual Tour of your home will be created and uploaded to all applicable web sites.  High definition, professional photos will be taken.  Panoramic stitched photos can be created.  It is a powerful marketing tool I will provide.
