How the Grove Team Works for you

The Grove Team with Keller Williams Realty would love the opportunity to work with you to market your property. In order for us to effectively market your home, we must work together. This information guide familiarizes you with how your personal real estate team works with you to get your home sold quickly!

Photos - Our listing coordinator takes photos for printed brochures and electronic marketing. Internet photo galleries are used to promote properties on the Grove Team website ( and other websites in order to give 24-hour exposure to your property. Because pictures attract buyers, it is important that your home looks its best on photo day.

Internet entry – Your listing’s entry to our local Multiple Listing Service is normally completed within 24 hours after photos are taken. Please allow ten days for your information to be available for viewing on, the Keller Williams site, the Grove Team site, and others.

Graphics - A full color flyer of your home will be provided by the Grove Team. This flyer includes upgrades, improvements, and specific information regarding your property. If there are details that you would like to be featured, please be sure to inform us right away. We initially order 25 copies; please notify our office when you need more.

Feedback from showings – Comments from agents showing your property are requested daily. Agent feedback helps measure the market’s response to your property. This feedback is available to you through email reports, on the Centralized Showing Service website, or when we call you each Friday.

Lead tracking – Members of the Grove Team are licensed real estate agents and respond immediately to inquiries. Each member aggressively tracks prospects using our follow-up system.

Stealth marketing – When appropriate, the Grove Team employs a professional staging service to offer recommendations on preparing your home for sale. This service includes a written report for your review. Our staging service offers tips on how to make your property show more effectively by highlighting the property’s features rather than personal belongings. This gives your property an edge over your competition-essential in today’s market!

Utilities – Utilities must be available and in working order even on vacant properties. Showings, home inspections, and the final walk-through must be conducted with functioning utilities.

Agent showings – Showings help us sell your home! Please make every effort to make your home ready and available to show at reasonable times. An electronic lockbox will be placed on your door to make your home more accessible and to electronically track showings. This box will remain on your home until after closing to accommodate home inspections and the final walk-through. Please let us know if other parties have access to your property.

Offers – We present offers as soon as possible. Our aggressive negotiating skills help you obtain the best terms and conditions. As appropriate, the Grove Team utilizes the latest technology and obtains electronic signatures. Fax and email are used when necessary.

Inspections – When your property goes under contract an inspection is usually required. Home inspections can take up to three hours. Often the buyers and their agents will accompany the inspector during that time. Please plan to be away from your property while the inspection is in process.

Public open houses – It is our policy to hold open houses on an individual basis, subject to the area and opportunity.

Concierge services – Any service provider recommendation made by us is offered strictly as a convenience to you. Our recommendations are based on our previous positive experiences or referrals from past clients. Our team does not receive any compensation for referrals. We are always interested in your feedback and comments.

Appointment service – We work directly with Centralized Showing Systems to schedule all showing appointments. They will contact you according to your instruction.
