How to Sell Your Home Quickly and for Top Dollar

Over the past couple months, I’ve been working on building a marketing plan around how to sell homes quickly and for top dollar. Although I think I have a solid plan, because I’m a newer agent, I feel like people may be hesitant to list with me. I understand the hesitation—if I were in your shoes, I too would want an experienced agent to sell my home.

That’s why I’ve decided to assemble a complete home-selling team for all my listings, leveraging other people’s expertise to provide the very best service possible. I met with professionals with various specialties related to preparing homes to be sold and then put together a team consisting of a consultant, stager, and photographer. Our team’s ultimate goal is to sell your home as quickly as possible and for top dollar. This is done using their expertise to create the best possible impression for your home, which drives showings and offers. This team is here to serve you, and all their services are complimentary when you list with me.

Meet the team:

Team captains


Joe Adrian

I co-list all my listings with my father, Joe Adrian, owner of Adrian Realty. This way I’m able to fully leverage his experience to provide great service. He has 30 years of experience and was in the top 10% of agents when he worked at Remax.


Mark Adrian­

I’ve been selling real estate part-time for over 2 years and recently went full-time. I come from an analytical background as a financial analyst for a bank.  I approach real estate from a consultant’s perspective. My goal is to advise you by providing all the information you need make the best decision for you and your family.


Team members

Laurie and Melissa

Home Consulting

 Although I think I have good attention to detail, sometimes you just need a woman’s touch! That’s why I use Melissa and Laurie with Trend Staging for all my listings. They will tour your home and do a 1.5-hour consultation to help prepare your home for listing. At the very least they will be another set of eyes as experts specializing in the home-selling preparation field. And at the most, they will give you a completely different perspective of your home—a perspective that buyers will love! To quote their site: “At Trend Staging we will maximize the use of space by creating an inviting environment buyers can envision themselves living in.”



Staging can range from filling an entire vacant home with all kinds of furniture to simply bringing in an item to create a focal point a room. After the initial home consultation, Laurie and Melissa will help you determine if additional staging is recommended. Usually, they can work with the things you already have (the typical seller tends to have too much stuff already). However, if staging is recommended, they have a huge warehouse in Burnsville full of the latest and greatest staging items!

Photos are a big deal—they’re how the first impression is made. Nearly all buyers will be viewing your home online before they consider a showing. High-quality photos will make your home appeal to a wider pool of buyers, increasing the number of showings, which will lead to a competitive offer situation. Adrian Suarez is a professional photographer with a great eye for detail. His excellent photographs will give your home a strong first impression for all your potential buyers. Check out the photos below for some of his latest work!
