Outside of our extended expertise across all spectrums of real estate, we also cover the majority of the ski resorts in Colorado as well as the Denver Front range areas. This means that we do not care where you find your perfect property, because it is all the same to the team. You will not have to worry about feeling the pressure from a broker to buy in a specific area based on where the Broker works, because Top Dog operates as a team and not individual Brokers. Our goal is ensuring a stress and pressure free buying experience regardless of the where you decide to buy.
Do you have people you work with to help with staging or interior design?
We have a professional designer and stager on the team. If you want her to work with what you already have in your home, there is no cost for her services. If you need her to do full staging with new furnishings, there will be a separate charge for this service.
How do you price the homes you list?
We use a variety of techniques to ensure we are pricing our client’s property at the highest price point to ensure we get a contract as soon as possible. One advantage we have over other real estate teams and companies is that we have a licensed appraiser on the Top Dog team.
