When it comes time to sell the house you’ve created memories in, you want trustworthy realtors who will find good prospective buyers. We’ll guide you through the process so you can get the best market value for your house. Benefit from our experience and service to get national reach with a local touch.

Selling Process

  1. Choose a reputable agent.
    It’s important to choose an established agent with a good reputation. Agents with poor reputations can affect the sale of your home, discouraging other agents from bringing in buyers. Working with experienced agents will give you more insider knowledge. We know of buyers that others don’t.
  2. Understand the market.
    Know the current value of comparable houses in your neighborhood so you have reasonable expectations. Our pricing strategy will help you secure the best market price for your house as quickly and easily as possible. Decades of combined real estate experience have taught us how to sell your house for 5–15% more, and in a shorter time.
  3. Price it right.
    The price of a property is critical to its sale, affecting how long it will be on the market. Pricing it too low means a quick sale but not the best return for the seller. Pricing it too high means fewer prospects and risks losing the initial surge of buyer interest. We know the sweet spot to seize that critical period when buyers should be most interested in your house.
  4. Develop a competent listing strategy.
    Almost 90% of home buyers begin their search on the Internet. We’ll make sure your house is well represented on the multiple list services and in print. Don’t be fooled by the claims of national high end realtors—we all use the same multiple list services. Leverage our years of local knowledge and expertise in the Baltimore Metro area.
  5. Prepare your house.
    Learn from our expertise on how to best declutter and stage your house to get it ready for the market. Make it easy for prospective buyers to imagine themselves happily living in your house.
  6. Insist on professional photography.
    We hire professional photographers who specialize in real estate. They’ll capture the best features of your house and present them attractively to prospective buyers. The first impression is the most powerful impression.

Testimonials

Dear Mr. Street,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism in selling our home on Selkirk Court. We attribute our quick sale (9 days) to an exceptional photo presentation, as well as an honest sincere description of our property. We had over twenty showings in the first week, and all with positive feedback. Not only did you sell in 9 days but we also received our full price! Once again, thanks for a great job. We certainly would recommend potential sellers or buyers to enlist your services.
Sincerely,
Peter and Barbara Frostead
Chris Streett has been our realtor in three different transactions. Chris is honest, thorough, and relentless. His best demonstration of this was most recently in the sale of our Forrest Hill home. The transaction was not as smooth as we had hoped, and through Chris’s tireless hours and connections it finally came to a close. We are so thankful for all of his assistance and highly recommend him.

Tim Hopkins handled the sale of my family’s farm with energy and skill and with complete integrity. He negotiated every stage of what could have been a complicated transaction with a sureness and tact that all of us greatly appreciated.
It is with pleasure that we share about our experience with Chris Streett in the sale of our home. Mr. Streett’s extensive knowledge of the area’s realty market—along with his recognized professionalism and forthright cooperation—was paramount to the timely and smooth process of the sale. His straightforward ideology of real estate and personal commitment cultured a strong sense of professional assurance in us from the beginning. With constant contact between us, Chris was always honest and upfront with assessments and advice, which was notably lacking in other realtors that we had tried in the past.

Above all, we believe that growing up within a prominent local family and living his entire life in this area has not only given Chris Streett an innate sense of the nuances of this realty market, but also enabled him to develop a vast network of contacts, putting him at a distinct advantage as a realtor. We would be very happy to give Chris Streett our highest recommendation for anyone looking to sell or buy property. Chris Streett is in a class by himself, and his local family history, past and present clients success stories speak for themselves.
—Dr. & Mrs. Steven Fountain

I bought my first house from Tim’s father, Harry Hopkins, in 1989. It was the first time I ever bought real estate. Harry sat me down and explained to me in very direct terms that you should never sign a contract without having an “out” clause for yourself, because you never know what is going to happen. I’ll never forget that—a realtor that would help you get out of a contract? Unheard of.

It’s been 26 years since I bought my first property, and since then I’ve had multiple deals with Tim Hopkins. We have worked together on many transactions, including commercial and residential properties and rental agreements. Harry unfortunately isn’t here anymore, but his legacy of treating people right by being fair and honest (even when you don’t want to hear it) has shown up in every dimension with Tim. His candor and honesty in dealing with people is rare in the industry—you won’t find any better.
