Grateful for the exceptional service!

Dear Cambridge Neighbor,

We wanted to take a moment to share some exciting news about the exceptional service provided by our realtor, Sue Jennings of The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team at Keller Williams North Atlanta, who recently assisted us in selling our home at 5685 Millwick Drive. Sue was recommended by our neighbors.

Throughout the entire process, we were continually impressed with Sue's professionalism, dedication, and commitment to achieving outstanding results. From the initial consultation to the support and guidance provided during the closing phase to the closing process, Sue ensured that every step went smoothly and efficiently to secure the best outcome for us.

Sue provided us with guidance for staging our home so that our home stood out among the competition, expertly evaluated the market, and strategically priced our home, resulting in multiple offers and a final sale price that exceeded our expectations.

The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team did an outstanding job photographing and marketing our home. 

Sue skillfully negotiated on our behalf, ensuring that we received the best possible outcome while maintaining transparency throughout the entire process. She worked diligently through the paperwork, ensuring that all necessary documents were prepared accurately and promptly.

In summary, we are grateful for the exceptional service we received from Sue Jennings and The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team of Keller Williams North Atlanta. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking outstanding real estate professionals who consistently exceed expectations to deliver the best results.

If you or anyone you know is considering buying or selling a home, we encourage you to reach out to Sue Jennings.

Upbeat and professional

My husband and I worked with Mary Ellen and her team to buy our Forever Home.  They were always upbeat, professional, and made sure that we were informed of and included in all parts of the buying process.  They made everything easier.  Since our purchase, they have reached out to see if we needed other realtor services, shared real estate updates, and included us in their engagement activities.  We couldn’t be happier with Mary Ellen, her team, and their services.

Prepare Your Home For Showings

The 3 R's - Remodel, Re-stage, and Reprice!

If you’re going to spend money on costly upgrades, make sure that the changes you make have a high return on investment. Remember, some improvements may not be necessary to sell your home for top dollar, particularly if inventory levels are low in your area.

Here’s where a good real estate agent ( Me 😉) can help guide you.

🔸If local buyers aren’t looking for super skylights or a steam shower, then it doesn’t make sense to add them.

🔸A fresh coat of neutral paint, a new carpet, and a spruced-up landscape are typically low-cost ways to make a great first impression.

🔸In general, updates to the kitchen and bathrooms provide the highest return on investment.

🔸 If you have old cabinetry, you might be able to simply replace the doors and hardware for an updated look.

A good agent often knows what people expect in your area and can help you plan upgrades accordingly.
