All About Fred
While it is true that I am a multi-million dollar sales volume agent and a past recipient of the RE/MAX President's Award and the RE/MAX Executive Club, what matters more is that I offer truly outstanding guidance to my Buyers and Sellers. In addition to all of the expected services offered by real estate agents, my clients rate my counseling and negotiating skills, along with integrity, accessibility and sense of humor as the qualities that set me apart from other agents.

As my client, you will be encouraged to call my cell number any time you have a question, need guidance, want a clarification, or are stressed or confused about an issue and need some answers. If you get my voice mail, you will receive a timely call back. My clients tell me they are surprised when they get my voice mail because it rarely happens. Let me know if you would like references from my clients. They are my best promoters and I treasure them all.

I am energized by the beauty of Rhode Island and the diversity and open-mindedness of her people.

If you value what I have described as my strengths and values, we will make a great team for finding you a property or marketing the one you want to sell. So give me a call on my cell phone and let's get started.

10 Tips For First-Time Sellers
by: Peter G. Miller


At first the task seems daunting: You haven't sold a home before, the market looks complex, and what worked for owners 10 or 20 years ago seems inappropriate today.

What steps should you take? Here's a baseline list to get you started.


  1. You Can Do It.
    Some 5.25 million existing homes were sold in 2001, more than 14,000 a day. Other owners have done it and so can you.

  2. Define Your Goal.
    Do you want the highest sales price -- or the biggest check at closing? They're not necessarily the same. Imagine that two homes sell for $300,000, but one owner pays 2 points and agrees to replace the roof. The owner who sold without such costs got a bigger check at settlement. The bottom line: To have a successful sale you need to look at both price and terms -- you must have a strong negotiator in your corner.

  3. Times Have Changed.
    Today's real estate marketplace is radically different when compared with 10 years ago. Purchasers now use the Internet, receive seller disclosure forms, get home inspections, and are routinely represented by buyer brokers. The result is that buyers can be better prepared than in the past.

  4. Sparkle And Shine.
    Imagine going to a supermarket and seeing dusty fruit or aisles filled with old shelving and cans. It doesn't happen because the grocery store knows how to present its goods. Sellers must do the same. Get rid of things you don't want to move, organize closets and storage areas, and clean everywhere.

  5. Mechanics Count.
    Buyers expect everything to work. Home inspections are now entirely common and what buyers miss home inspectors will catch. Fix and paint things now and they won't be an issue in the future.

  6. Think Broadway.
    When buyers see your home, it's show-time. They want an environment where they can see themselves. Give them a show where everything is painted, arranged, and attractive? a home where the only issue is when to move in.

  7. How's The Market?
    Real estate is local. Your broker can explain current market trends in your community, including what's selling, what isn't selling, and why. This information is central to getting the best possible price and terms.

  8. Know Your Rivals.
    Your property will be competing with other homes for buyer attention. Ask your broker how to be competitive -- and how to have an edge.

  9. What Time Is It? Markets differ by location and time.
    When interest rates are low and the local job base is growing, it's great to be a seller. But when times are slack and mortgage rates are rising, homes also sell. In 1981, when the prime rate topped 20 percent and the population was smaller, 2.4 million existing homes were sold. The trick is to be realistic, to get as much as market conditions will allow.

  10. Understand The Plan.
    Real estate marketing involves far more than a sign in the yard and an ad in the paper. Successful brokers use a variety of methods to attract and qualify prospects, including the latest Internet and communication advances.
