HOME SELLING DASHBOARD

While no two deals are ever the same, the process follows a somewhat predictable path. Most of this information will always be shared with you personally at the appropriate time, but because there is so much of it - and my goal is always to create simple and elegant systems that make my clients feel empowered and informed - I've created this checklist as a tool I hope you find helpful as we proceed through the home selling journey together. 

Pink will take you to forms or presentations I've created that offer deeper insight. 

Blue will take you to blank Colorado Commission of Real Estate approved forms.

Green takes you to other websites that I think might be helpful.

Orange allows you to email or make a call as appropriate throughout the process.
