Selling A Property in Probate (Why You Should Choose Us)

We understand that it’s not easy to sell a property in probate. That’s why we want to come alongside you in the process, and make it as easy as possible. We’ve put together this list of 5 Reasons Why You Should Choose RISE Homes to Sell Your Property in Probate. We strive for excellence in everything we do and we are confident that you will recognize this when you choose to hire us.

Project Management

As part of our service, we manage the entire pre-sale preparation of your property in probate. Usually, this involves painting, refinishing, or replacing flooring material, staging, and some minor handyman repairs. There are a couple of things that really separate us – we’re quick and we’re efficient. Most of our projects take two weeks to, at most, a month and a half. We have established relationships with the same contractors which ensures trust and discounted rates.

Additionally, all of our contractors are licensed, bonded, and insured. You can rest assured that there’s not going to be any issues with who we hire for the preparation work.

Concierge Program

We provide this program where we advance all of the funds and pay the contractors out of our pocket. Reimbursement happens when the house sells so that the estate doesn’t actually have to come out of pocket to invest in this work.
This is at no additional cost to you and there is no interest charge. We don’t begin any work without your approval. Contractors are paid once the job is completed and approved by you.

Specialized Team

Most real estate agents take the “jack of all trades and a master of none” approach. They try to handle the preparation of the property, putting together documents and contracts, listing and selling the home, open houses, showings, negotiation, and more.
Working with our team, for the same price, you get a team of specialists. Our approach to selling real estate has solid systems and organization.
As the Lead Agent of RISE Homes, I handle the communication with potential buyers and other agents, showings and open houses, negotiation, and managing the rest of the team to make sure your sale is always being handled at a high level.

We also have a Listing Coordinator. She is responsible for scheduling and coordinating contractors and vendors; painters, flooring contractors, plumbers, electricians, handymen, photographers, stagers, inspectors, and more. She visits the house daily to check on progress. She sends you regular status updates with pictures and video so you are in the loop the entire time.

Our Transaction Coordinator is responsible for sending out documents and contracts for signature and triple checking everything to ensure all is in order.

Extensive Experience in Probate

I have been a realtor for over 10 years, and early on I saw a need for probate specialization. I decided to make properties in probate my niche and have made this my primary focus ever since. Many people who become an executor or administrator of an estate generally have a lot on their plate. Usually, the largest asset they have to sell is the house that the decedent owned. There is a lot going on and the responsibility of doing this can get very overwhelming. Sometimes they might choose to hire a realtor who is convenient; a friend or a recommendation from someone they know, without going through a more rigorous interview process. It’s critical that you hire someone who knows this process backward and forwards.

If you work with our team you can be confident that you are working with someone who is an expert with a property in probate. I am a certified Probate expert with the California Association of Realtors (CAR). I also sell at least two to three probate listings every month, and we are very knowledgeable with all of the documentation, and processes involved with the probate court.

Customer Service

Our values include integrity, continuous improvement, and client-focus. It’s always vitally important to us that our clients are happy with the service we provide and the results we achieve for them and their families. You can contact me directly on my cell phone anytime, or anyone else on our team for that matter. We strive for excellence in everything we do and we are confident that you will recognize this when you choose to hire us.
