Best Performing Real Estate Team In The Area

I found The Poltrock Team doing an internet search when I decided to sell my home in Andrews, NC. I found John and his team to be very friendly, positive and cooperative. My home sold in 2 days with closing on time and without issues! I would definitely do business with them again.

We recently purchased land in Murphy, NC. Our agent was Donna was great to work with. Donna gave me all the information we needed e.g. bank contacts and closing attorney. In addition, if I had any questions she answered them immediately. She walked us through the processes and contracts so we did not have any unexpected issues. I would highly recommend Donna.

Wayne Cofer Helped us Find the Perfect Home

We found out about The Poltrock Team while searching properties on the Internet. After Wayne Cofer called about one of our inquiries, we decided to work with the team. During our real estate transaction, Wayne Cofer’s services were most helpful. We spent several days with him, and his guidance and questions made us really “think.” We feel that Wayne is a true asset! We are very pleased to have found the perfect home, in the perfect location!

Also, The Poltrock Team’s business relationships with attorneys and insurance companies definitely made the legal end of our purchase seem flawless. Overall, we rate the level of service received as a “10.” We would absolutely work with The Poltrock Team again.

The Poltrock Team is the Real Estate Team to Call in Murphy, NC

We found out about The Poltrock Team through a Craigslist ad. After Wayne’s return call, we learned that the home was sold. Then, Wayne asked me, “What would you like in a home?” I gave him a list of interests I want in a home, and three days later he forwarded four specs with pictures to follow. We then decided to work with The Poltrock Team. The team put forth an excellent effort to help us find and purchase our house.

During our real estate transaction, The Poltrock Team was most helpful in providing knowledge on the home inspection, termites, etc. Wayne talked to me like I was a family member, being honest and downright informative. He helped us with our mortgage questions, as well as information he had from being in Murphy.

Overall, we are 100% satisfied with our real estate experience with The Poltrock Team. We are very happy with Wayne, and we would definitely recommend him to friends. We are also very pleased with the team’s professionalism, and we rate the level of service received as a “10.” We would absolutely work with The Poltrock Team again.

First Class Service

John Poltrock and his team at ReMax in Murphy, NC were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They kept us constantly informed on their efforts to sell our vacation house. Within only three months after listing with John, we signed a contract to sell.

After signing the contract, there were several things that needed to be done to the house to meet the seller’s requirements. Because we live hundreds of miles away, this could have been difficult for us. However, The Poltrock Team completely relieved us of that burden. Whatever needed to be done – they did, cheerfully and efficiently.

Here is the best example of that. After we closed on the sale in Murphy, we were driving back to our home in Florida. While underway, we called Dish Network to discontinue our service. We found out that we were required to box up the TV receiver and other components, and ship them back to Dish.

However, we were well away from Murphy, and the new owners were already moving in. It could have posed a serious dilemma for us, but it was no problem for John. We called John, and informed him of the situation. Remember, we had already closed on the house, and John’s formal responsibilities could have ended there.

But John is not that kind of person. He quickly said “Have them (Dish) send the return box to me, and I will box things up and send them back.” Another problem solved quickly, cheerfully, and efficiently.

Thank you, John, and your staff!

Going from Stink To Sold – Make it Smell Good to Sell Your House

Selling a house in Murphy, North Carolina, or any area for that matter, is really hard when it stinks. Both literally and figuratively! If a buyer’s nose is negatively assaulted by a strong smell when they arrive in a house, they’ll often leave with a bad impression no matter how perfect everything else is. I’ve literally shown houses where the buyer took two steps inside, then turned around and left over stench.

There are all kinds of offensive odors which stand out in buyer’s minds. Something you may have become completely desensitized to will stick out like a red flag and cause buyer not to purchase your nose-knows-a-smell-when-selling-your-househouse. Common foul odors are:

  • Pets
  • Smoke
  • Staleness and must, especially when caused by excessive moisture
  • Mold or mildew
  • Trash
  • Sewer or septic odor

Some smells can be particularly challenging to destroy, and for those, we have vendors who can take care of the worst of the worst. However there are easy things you can do to make a world of difference and ultimately contribute to hanging a SOLD sign in your yard.

Febreeze works miracles! This is one of our top secrets to make your home smell fresh and inviting to a buyer. Don’t get any “fancy” sprays or scents that particularly stand out (many folks think you’re trying to hide something if its too strong), but rather the original Febreeze seems to work the best. It doesn’t particularly standout nor is it overpowering. It makes for a fresh, clean house worthy of buying. I would encourage you not to use anything that smells stronger than Fresh Baked Cookies.

Get rid of the perpetrator! If you have a pet bed Fido has been using for the last 15 years, it may be time to go shopping for a new one. If you have covers on sofas, curtains, soiled rugs or carpeting, or any other fabric needing to be washed, now is the time! Then, maintain it with Febreeze.

As part of our service to you, we won’t sugarcoat smells! If something stands out to us, we will tell you so you can identify and take action. The nose is a sympathetic organ and can omit alerting you to a smell, especially if it has been around a while. Don’t take offense! Rather, as constructive feedback. Our goal is selling your house for the most money in the shortest period of time, and bad smells can definitely cause the opposite if you’re unaware of an issue.

Please give us a call or contact us here and let us help stage your house so you can get the best results and ultimately get your real estate sold!

The Simplest Thing That Will Make Your House Sell

When we bought our first house here in Murphy NC, it was a foreclosure and there was maybe one light bulb in every room that actually worked. It made showing it miserable and difficult. In fact, I tried to sell it no less than three times to different buyers before I made an offer on it, and no one would buy it! I decided it worked wonderfully for my family, so Jessica and I purchased it. 

Perhaps I’m wrong; I suspect a major reason it didn’t sell is because of how poorly it showed. There were obvious things wrong with it: disgusting carpet, it needed staining outside desperately, the basement wasn’t completely finished, and a few other things. It was all cosmetic. The location was prime, repairs were reasonable, and the price was right. I, to this day, believed it didn’t sell for one simple reason – light bulbs.

This bathroom vanity is a perfect example of what you don't want!
This bathroom vanity is a perfect example of what you don’t want!

Too simplistic? Perhaps; perhaps not. Lightbulbs are one of the most overlooked yet effective tools in showing a property. In fact, anyone who has ever had their house listed for sale with me has probably heard me say, “When you have a showing, turn on every lightbulb in the house. I want it to look like the house is on fire!”

If you’re selling your house here in Murphy NC and surrounding, or anywhere for that matter, make sure that every light bulb in the house works. It may sound like a no brainer, yet you’d be amazed how many houses we show where there’s no light working in the stairwell, the kitchen, bathroom, you name it. Switch broken and that’s why the light won’t turn on? Replace it. This is simple, yet important.

The lightbulb itself matters. You want something in 3000k range of light. The “old fashioned” incandescent light bulb is the standard, yet is getting hard to find. It turns on to peak output instantly and provides a comforting, warm light. You do not want the “spaceship blue” lights as I call it (I believe the industry calls it Cool Blue or something of that nature). You also do not want the curlicue fluorescent light bulbs… unless you set the stage for each showing. The light itself is fine in terms of output and color, however they tend to take a significant period of time to warm up and reach maximum output. By then, your prospective buyer is gone and on to the next room and didn’t get the best impression, whether they realized it or not. LED’s work great – instant on, easy to find color temperature, however can be cost prohibitive. When it comes to selling, or not selling your house, a light bulb is certainly worth the cost.

Don’t overlook the little things: lightbulbs go a long way. Want to know what else it takes to sell your house? That’s what we are here for! Call us on the number below or contact us by clicking here and we will guide you on what it takes to get it sold!
