This year I had the good fortune to be referred to Jill Giese & Associates to sell my rental house near Boise’s North End community.
I approached Jill with no idea of the value of the property, and because I live out of state, no real ability to be hands-on with the project; still, Jill was very enthusiastic to take it on. She invited me to a call for which she came prepared to introduce her agency and processes, understand my situation and objectives, and start working. She prepped a market evaluation for the property, opening my eyes to the potential, and offered solutions how we could work together to sell the property quickly and at a very good price.
Jill arranged renovation with contractors, getting my approval for all tasks and pricing, and providing regular updates. As an older house that had been a rental for several years, we did find a couple of surprises to be fixed, but were resolved quickly and at well managed costs.
The home was listed within just a few weeks, just as people were transitioning into self-isolation due to COVID-19, yet met immediate interest based on her virtual open house and prearranged site visits, with some offers even above asking price. We had a deal in less than two weeks. [editor’s note: 8 days!]
There was an obstacle with the initial appraisal value, but with her expertise in the market, specifically in the North End, Jill was able to submit a rebuttal to the appraisal which was accepted by the buyers’ financier.
The staff at Jill Giese & Associates supported the process, start to finish, with friendly efficiency; I met professionalism at every turn, with everyone I worked with on this sale. My highest recommendation, and gratitude to Jill and her team!
