Eric and Christina lived in their home for twenty years and wanted something bigger and better. After putting a deposit down on a nearby home soon to be built, they started to game plan on the sale of their home. They had never sold a home before, so the home selling process was unfamiliar territory for them. A friend of theirs suggested that they speak to the Realtor® that sold her home - so they did.

They invited the agent over and both became uncomfortable within the first three minutes. You know that feeling when you pull up to a used car lot, get out of your car, and you just know you're going to be hounded by the wolves? Well, that's exactly how they felt. They got the aggressive sales pitch from the get go and were asked numerous times to sign the listing agreement right then and there. Eric has been in sales his entire life, so the "sales pitch" wasn't anything new to him - but the overly aggressive approach was something him and Christina didn't like.

After seeing a video online about SoldNest, they decided to fill out their information on our website and requested a market analysis of their property. After meeting with their SoldNest agent at their home, the feeling they had about him was the opposite of what they had with the previous agent they met with. They were impressed by the marketing approach that would be used to peak buyer's interest - specifically the 3-D video. The amount they would save by paying lower commissions was a big plus for their home, and overall they felt very comfortable when meeting with their SoldNest agent. Before leaving their home, their agent left the listing agreement with them and told them to think it over. This caught Eric and Christina off guard, as they were expecting a sales pitch. After thinking about it for about fifteen seconds, they decided to sign the agreement right then and there.

Their home was put on the market on a Wednesday and had 4 offers by the following Wednesday. The list price was $81,000 over the asking price - a number that Eric and Christina thought was not attainable. In addition to the higher sales price, they put an extra $19,600 in their pocket by selling with us.


Eric and Christina of San Jose sold their home with SoldNest and saved $19,600 in real estate commissions.

As a first time seller, we were looking for a very knowledgeable and trustworthy agent to sell our long-time home. We interviewed 2 other agents and from the minute we met with Joseph, we knew we would be in good hands.

He is very honest and sets clear expectations. He is not only very knowledgeable about real estate, he excels at his communications and negotiations. Joseph made sure we were well informed and understood our options throughout the entire process giving us constant updates. His commission is also lower than other agents and more than fair for the amount and quality of marketing which he provides.

We are extremely pleased with Joseph's services and high quality representation. If you are looking for an expert real estate agent who will go the extra mile to exceed your expectations and goals, we would highly recommend Joseph and SoldNest.
