Step 4: Strong Negotiating Skills:
It is an interesting dynamic – Buyers want to pay the lowest price for your property while you want to achieve the highest possible price. We prepare comparables and other data for buyers in order to support and justify the highest possible sale price. Also there is far more to negotiation than merely price. The terms in the contract are also very important. The Lewis Team manages all aspects of the negotiations to best protect you and achieve the best result for you!

If you would like to receive market analysis information comparing your home’s value to other similar houses in your area that are currently available or recently sold, please provide the information requested below.
We’re providing this information to you “sight unseen”, our estimate of your property’s value must be understood to be approximate. Factors such as the home’s location, condition, your financial needs and motivation for selling all influence your asking price. We hope this information is helpful. If you wish, we can meet with you to discuss our comprehensive services to help you to buy or sell a home.
I consider Diane to be the best agent in Northern Virginia. She is calm, careful, extremely knowledgeable, and has a keen eye and understanding of value that makes her the best. Buying or selling homes is trying and stressful, and Diane saves you far more than the broker fee in my experience. When it gets down to the most crucial moments, and it always does get that way, she's the counselor you want and need. I've done two deals with her in the last few years, both very successful. I know almost every agent in the area from extensive interaction at open houses across the region, and I wouldn't work with anyone else. Ask any agent in town and they all know and like Diane, and they like to work with her because she's so nice and such a professional, and that helps too in any deal.
We are so glad we chose The Lewis Team to sell our house. They did an excellent job on marketing materials, publicity, and open houses, but they truly exceeded our expectations in ways we hadn't thought about when we chose a listing agent.

The Lewis Team patiently worked with us for almost 18 months as we searched with very specific criteria for the home of our dreams. They knew our neighborhoods, our likes and dislikes, even when and where to find us when there was a "must see now" home.
