"We listed our home with the Ed Finlan Group on 6/12/2015 and closed the sale on 7/15/2015. Our homes sold for 99.7 percent of ask. After an initial visit, Ed provided valuable professional advice regarding pricing along with an intelligent and thorough marketing proposal. We priced the home at a level that reflected the value of the property without slowing the pace of the sell. We had offers in three weeks.
Ed’s staff did an outstanding job projecting the property’s points of sales across the variety of real estate sites and social media. His staff was consistently friendly and helpful as they processed the necessary documentation that accompanied the sale. The document process with The Finlan group was very hi-tech and we were able to sign off approvals on line.
I highly recommend the Finlan group to anyone selling a home in the Northwest area."
