He was easily accessible during the entire sales process and was an absolute pleasure to work with.” - Steve Hoberman Seller Working with Patrick Parker was a great experience.

Time on market Since mortgages are based on fair market value, not the sale price, more buyers will be able to consider your property when it is priced competitively. $If your property is pricedright, more buyers will be interested when it first hits the market.
