Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Advantage III Realty in Lake Nona BK3059813


Following the incredible story of the amazing twin sisters on HGTV, we just completed the first ever UNSELLABLE HOUSE in Orlando FL.

Our seller was introduced to us by her sister-in-law, The Linda Green Team (kw.com) and she told us this very sweet widow had lost her husband and has some health issues and the family decided it was time for her to move on from her 1994 home she and her husband bought brand new and raised their family in.

We met with seller and she told with the 31 year old home and with the condition needing much deferred maintenance, she had received offers of $225,000 in its current condition.  

Being huge fans of the HGTV show, we decided this seller was the perfect fit to use this method on and introduce Orlando to just how this program can help home sellers to make the most money for their home and stop giving their profit away to investors who buy it cheap and remodel it and flip it for huge profit they keep.

Using this method, we spoke with seller and shared with her that if her home was completely renovated, she could expect about $450,000 for her same house she was being offered $225,000 and it would cost about $60,000 and she said I don't have any money to put into this.

We said if she wanted to partner with and trust us to do this for her and knowing this is her last major asset, we knew we had to get her top dollar for her house.

We both agreed and myself, my wife, and our team mate all took the bull by the horns and we put our own sweat, and money into this remodel, and just 3 ordinary Realtors, this was not our normal gig, but for this special lady we hired the best help for the parts we needed professionals for, and we put in our own sweat and within 46 days, we turned this 1994 house into a BRAND NEW 2023 Home for a new family.

This home has new roof, new plumbing, new water heater, new A/C, new ceiling fans, new electrical outlets and switches, new cabinets, new floors, new paint inside and out, all new lighting, 2 completely newly built bathrooms, all new doors, new garage opener, new landscaping, much old landscape and debris removed, completely removed all original tile, removed some walls and redesigned, and completely brand new LG appliances, and even new disposal.  

We met some amazing vendors and now future partners ready to do our next house for our new family that wants to sell their home for maximum price but may need some love in order to achieve top dollar.
