In all areas of life, Maria and Tessa have the work ethic, focus and determination to rise above challenges to achieve their goals. This approach is nowhere more apparent than in their success as renowned real estate professionals. For over 40 years combined experience, The Corley Team REALTORS® have proven to over 2,000 Buyers and Sellers that their goals are within reach. With their wealth of experience and unique insights, they are known for providing a higher level of real estate service.
Superior Market Knowledge
The Corley Team is now well into their third decade as licensed REALTORS® with the Calgary Real Estate Board (licensed since 1991 for Maria and 1999 for Tessa) and in that time have seen the market take dramatic shifts. Every change has resulted in finding new and innovative methods or creating the perfect backdrop for selling homes and negotiating contracts on behalf of their Buyers and Sellers. The Corley Team are constantly seeking out leading edge methods of marketing to get your home the exposure it deserves.
Home Pricing Expertise
Real Estate studies have shown that in a steady market 75% of properties for sale at an accurately calculated suggested listing price sell in 3 weeks or less. Moreover, 95% of houses priced at just 2% under the suggested listing price will sell within 2 weeks. But if a property is over-priced by just 5% and the listing price is not adjusted, chances are only 1 in 20 that it will sell in 12 weeks or less. The initial asking price of your listing is critical —you need a REALTOR® with the experience and expertise to determine fair market value in today's real estate market. The Corley Team has that experience and expertise.
Published books and guides to productive and profitable home-selling and buying
Tessa and Maria have collaborated to publish very specific guide books that explain the real estate selling and buying processes to their clients. These books are provided complimentary to their clients only and are invaluable tools for navigating the real estate transaction from start to finish.
World-class real estate website and marketing
The Corley Team is constantly striving to improve their marketing and on-line services to their clients by molding their social media and web presence to meet today's very innovative and changing technical world. That's why we have created one of Calgary's most beautiful, user friendly and informative websites for you to use. Here our listings will be featured for prospective buyers to view at their leisure, easy search tools to view all Calgary listings, free access to all of Calgary's community sales stats, buyer's and seller's information packages, evaluation forms, our blog, client testimonials and so much more.
The Corley Team are top-notch at preparing your home for the competitive Calgary market. We have seen thousands of homes and we know what buyers want. If your home already shows very well we may choose to tweak an area or two to make it even better. If your home requires a bit more work to make it show like a show home we will leave it to the experts and hire a professional stager (we pay for two hours of consultation) to help you turn your home into that buyer magnet! Remember, the better your home shows the quicker it will sell and result in more money in your pocket. Your home deserves the best!
Evolution turned revolution. Today, over 95% of homebuyers find their future home online. Moreover, the internet is where almost ALL potential homebuyers will see your property— and they will look at all the pictures before reading about all the great features of the home. Often, if they don't like the pictures, they won't even read the words let alone book a showing. Pictures are the most valuable component in marketing real estate, and that's why The Corley Team uses professional photographers (at our cost) to effectively captivate the imaginations of those consumers searching for Real Estate online. The internet has created a consumer that is used to going online to research products before taking psychological ownership and ultimately making the purchase. The Corley Team has the leading edge in creating the type of content that will allow Buyers to take this same psychological ownership of Real Estate. The quality of The Corley Team professional photography proves this time and again—which results in quicker offers for more money.
Professional virtual tours
The Open House is no longer the only way to show a property. With the invention of real estate virtual tours, potential Buyers can see every room of a house without ever leaving their computer, and has quickly become the epitome of marketing tools in the Real Estate industry. When marketing every property, The Corley Team provides both slide show tours to showcase individual rooms as well as top quality 360° panoramic tours (without the distortion often found in poor quality tours) providing greater visual accuracy, appeal and sales impact (again, at our cost). Buyers are often psychologically attached to the property before ever viewing it!
Professional full color brochures & marketing
All of The Corley Team's listings are provided with unlimited, beautiful full color brochure booklets (at our cost). This professionally created keepsake displays several photos, a fresh and enticing description of the home, and area information. Buyers always better remember what they can take away with them for viewing later.
Negotiation is the process of communication back and forth in order to reach a joint agreement. There is no 'one size fits all' strategy of negotiating a real estate contract. When you get an offer, you deserve the comfort of knowing that The Corley Team are well known and respected in the Real Estate community. The value of trust in a negotiation cannot be overstated, so knowing you have experienced, formidable negotiators on your side is essential.
