Are you seeing fewer “For Sale” signs around the area now that summer is coming to a close? If you think you missed the boat on buying or selling your home this year, Amy Hoes, of Howard Hanna Real Estate, assures you to fear not.

“My third and fourth quarters are actually always strong,” she reports. “I think people are busy in the summer, and when the kids get back to school and things settle down, they get more serious.”

If you’re serious about selling your home for more money, in less time, Amy is the Realtor for you.

Her husband Kurt, who manages her stats, reports that in the first half of 2018, the average time on the market for homes in Medina County was 77 days. Amy’s average listing in Medina County sold much faster, with an average of 25 days on the market.

In terms of asking price, Amy’s listings sold for 99.55 percent of their asking price, while the average for Medina was 96.25 percent of asking price. Wondering how much just a couple of percentage points matters? The difference here translates into putting $6,600 more dollars in your pocket with an asking price of $200,000.

“Amy has consistently outsold 99 percent of Realtors in the country,” says Kurt, who is also a pilot and one of the few in Medina to offer FAA authorized drone photography for every listing.

Premium Service for Every Price Level
“No matter what your home value is, I offer the same level of service. That’s just who I am,” says Amy. “I negotiate just as hard for a $60,000 home as I do for a $2 million home.”

She reports that guiding home sellers to the best price is an integral part of her success.

“I do my research before ever stepping foot in someone’s home,” she says. “I have all of the comps and the numbers to set the price just right to sell.”

Of the many listings currently on the market, Amy says they each have an ideal buyer out there.

For instance, the home on 1587 Mattingly Road in Hinckley reflects all of the custom touches you’d expect from a $1,549,000 million estate, from inlaid marble flooring and spiral staircases to an exercise studio on the lower level and hand-painted Italian mosaic tiles along with rustic, hand-scraped hardwood floors. Nestled on seven acres, this 8,622-square-foot luxury estate appeals to a discriminating buyer.

People seeking peace and privacy should go through the 3,238 square-foot home for sale on 5619 View Point Drive in Medina. Located on a tree-lined two-acre lot at the end of a dead-end street, the home features boundless windows to bring in the verdant view and loads of natural light. It blends family-friendly amenities, like a spacious first-floor laundry and finished basement with rec room and full bath, with high-end touches such as hickory hardwood flooring and coffered ceilings. Listed at $499,900, this gem will not last on the market long.

A Tenacious Trio
Keeping her support team running like a well-oiled machine is one of the reasons Amy can take the time to communicate effectively with clients and prepare for negotiating the best deals.

Buyer specialists Deena Doran and Nicole Schmalz have much in common with Amy. Both women are busy working moms. Deena has three girls and Nicole has two boys.

Amy’s kiddos are Atalie, a cheerleader and junior at Medina High School, and Bryan, a seventh-grade baseball player and fan. The family supports local teams, local schools and a variety of local charities.

Though family comes first, Deena and Nicole also share Amy’s dedicated work ethic.

“People always tell me that Deena and Nicole seem like they are everywhere,” smiles Amy.
