Thank you so much for contacting me first. After seeing your home and walking through together, I just wanted to summarize my suggestions on items you should work on over the next 30 days to prepare your home for us to put on the market.
I am always trying to be cost conscious on these recommendations and am keeping in mind what will have the most impact on the buyer for the least amount of cost for you. If you need recommendations for vendors on anything you do not want to handle yourself please let me know so I can provide those as well.
Here is a list of my suggestions to improve your curb appeal, and I put in order or priority: 1. Replace front door hardware and repaint front door
Pressure wash sidewalks and driveways to increase curb appeal
2. Pressure wash sidewalks and driveway
3. Plant fresh flowers in the front and in the pots by the door to make front entrance as welcoming as possible
4. Wash windows
5. Take care of any wood rot (remove, repair and repaint) and paint trim
Prune any overgrown trees or bushes to improve curb appeal.
6. Prune overgrown trees
7. Remove screens from windows on front of the house
Add potted flowering plants to the deck.
8. Add some potted plants to the deck area
9. Water your grass the next 30 days to try and get it looking as good as possible
10. Replace pine straw with darker colored mulch and or freshen up pine straw
I know in this market if we stage the house, handle these items on the exterior, market aggressively and price it competitively we will get it sold!
Looking forward to working with you all again on the sale of this house.
Thank you so much for choosing to work with me.

2010 has been a great year for The Cueny Connection with sales increasing by more than 25%!

We attribute 2010 residential real estate success to the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, our powerful marketing program for sellers, and hard work and commitment to this business each and every day. Our success in this market is simple . . . knowledge of multiple markets in metro Atlanta residential real estate!
The experience and understanding of multiple markets is from working with clients relocating here from around the world for business. Buyers relocating to Atlanta and people who already live here often want to consider and explore real estate in the various pockets of Atlanta.
I feel fortunate to work and know many markets to help buyer and seller clients. Atlanta has so much to offer and so many areas for a buyer to consider!

Just as an example in 2010, sales for buyer and seller clients were in the following areas:
