Since the formation of the DiFranco Team, each year we have represented at least 50 to 60 buyers and sellers in successful real estate transactions, in Philadelphia and the suburbs. We have extensive experience with the unique needs of a diverse range of clients, including:
- First-time homebuyers
- Growing families moving up to a bigger home
- Families and individuals relocating to the Philadelphia area
- Homeowners ready to downsize
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Our Team members pay close attention to the dozens of details that go into a successful real estate transaction. Among them are pricing, curb appeal, sellers disclosures, Internet marketing, showings, advertising, open houses, inspection negotiations, title review, and assistance with the mortgage process.
We send personalized letters to each client during the course of selling or buying, describing the numerous steps to be taken next and reminding clients of crucial deadlines as settlement grows near. And we stay in touch after the sale, making sure our clients’ needs continue to be met.
The Team uses state-of-the-art technology to help us keep track of all details and deadlines. We meet regularly as a Team to ensure that all the upcoming activities related to each transaction are noted, discussed and handled.
