1. How will you find the buyer for my property?

Most agents spent the least amount of money on advertising and get very lackluster results, throwing the property on the MLS without spending a dime over their MLS dues.

Christina Dwight has an extensive network of buyers and her advertising budget is over $100,000 per year. She commits to ensuring that your property stands out from the crowd with cutting-edge, comprehensive marketing and the best exposure possible for your property.

5. Do you have to put a sign on my property?

Selling an apartment building requires sensitivity to tenants and their assumptions about what will happen when the building is for sale.

Christina Dwight will discuss your unique situation with you so you can make sure your concerns are addressed and you are making the best decision for your income and your tenants.

6. Are you a member of the Board of Realtors?

Your agent should adhere to the highest level of ethics and represent only your interests in the marketplace. Christina Dwight will never be a dual agent and will do things the right way. She holds a seat as a board member of the Professional Standards Committee since 2019, and you can rest assure that her advice will protect you even after the transaction closed.
