I was extremely pleased with the service provided by to me by Libby Salamone (and her husband Ron) after recently choosing them to list my condo at Dolphin Cay. I spoke with several RE agents in the St. Peter area about the state of the local RE condo market in late 2010 (including some agents who had listings already in Dolphin Cay that were not selling after several months on the market). It became quite clear to me that Libby and Ron had the most comprehensive and realistic view on what it would take to get a quick sale of the condo at a fair and reasonable price.
Libby's honest, detailed recommendations for how to prepare the unit for listing, and what would be the right price to list it at for the current market conditions were absolutely spot on. She also recommended I use a professional "stager" to make the unit as attractive as possible to current buyers, and she covered the costs of the professional staging as part her listing services.
The result speaks for itself - I received an offer for 99.4% of the listing price within 3 weeks of listing the unit after the staging was completed! She and Ron were very skillful in negotiating the final terms and conditions of the purchase contract on my behalf, and Ron arranged for some local contractors to make some minor repairs to the unit for me after inspections since I did not live in the area. They suggested a closing attorney and title company that were reasonably priced, competent and efficient, and they made sure that everything was taken care of for me before I came back to town prior to the closing, which they held at their offices to make it more convenient for me.
I have bought and sold numerous properties in several states over the past 30 years, and I would rate Ron and Libby at the top of my list of RE agents for their knowledge of local market conditions and professional approach to me as their client. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the St. Peter area who is looking for a great agent to represent them, and I am grateful to them for their help in achieving my goal of a quick sale at essentially full asking price.
Many thanks to Ron and Libby - you were terrific!
