Cristi Ulrich is a partner at The Smith Group. She’s our Huntington Beach specialist with an emphasis in Huntington Harbour. With over twenty-one years of real estate experience and a unique zest for life—you will find her personality contagious. She believes that even if you’re having a bad moment, like moving down in life because you cannot financially afford where you are living, why would you not focus on making your next move fabulous.
Four years ago Cristi sold her personal home:
“I had never been a seller before. Well, that’s not entirely true, I sold a little condo that I never lived in, but I had never sold my home of twenty six years. The home where all my children were born and raised. I learned how extremely personal and difficult it is to make such a decision and to actually follow through with it. The experience gave me a valuable perspective on sellers. It gave me a heart and soul about the process.
For anyone in a situation where you are giving up something you have loved and cherished, moving on, whether it’s by choice, through hardship, or because you are stepping on to something better; regardless the reason, I know how difficult it is to let go of something you love.
It’s interesting to observe life’s circumstances and how they push people to move. Your husband died. Your house is too big and feels empty. You lost your job. You bought a bigger boat and need a bigger boat dock. Perhaps you’re tired of your house. Your life is begging for a change. Your family is expanding, you’re pregnant, and expecting a baby.
I made the choice to let go because my family decreased in size and I wanted a smaller environment. After a couple weeks I never looked back. Because I was happy about where I landed. This is the key. Even if it’s a terribly bad situation, you need to relocate in a manner that makes you feel good. If it’s an apartment, a brand new home, on the water, smaller, or bigger. Whatever the story, it’s important to hire an agent and team that can help you through your transition.
When you find the courage to let go, the next step is to make a commitment to the entire process.
Who you choose to help you and how you choose to let them matters. The direction you are coming from and the one in which you’re headed, transitions much easier if you make a commitment. When you’re wishy-washy you are never going to find that next fabulous home.
Once your’e committed and partnered with The Smith Group, we will prepare your house to ensure it sells as quick as possible. It can be tedious and invasive to have your house listed. And we don’t want to put you through an experience where you’re sitting on the market for six months.
In order to move it we need to make your home the most beautiful it can be. To make it feel so good when people walk in they never want to leave. We might move around your furniture or hire our preferred staging company to work their magic.
Once your home is listed and dressed at it’s best, your brain begins to wrap itself around where you’re going to land next. And this becomes a perfect opportunity to get excited. To define the specifics of what you want. It’s actually helpful to sit down and begin making a list.
You ask the difference between me and my competition? When you list with me I work with you every step of the way. You are my number one priority. And I will get you 98 percent of your list price. The Smith Group is excellent in defining where you should be on the market, how we put you there, and how quickly we sell. We will maximize your dollars.”
If you are looking to move to Huntington Beach, CA, or find the courage to list your home, let go, and pursue a fabulous new adventure. Please call me. We can begin our exciting partnership in possibility.
