DJ was extremely helpful to me throughout the whole process. I am very satisfied with his handling of my home purchase and even though I live in a different time zone, he made himself available to answer or handle any questions I had. Charlene P.
Super professional, knowledgeable and stand up guy! DJ answered all of our questions throughout the process and we would highly recommend him to anyone selling their home! Tracy S.
DJ was absolutely amazing to work with. His experience and knowledge of Colorado real Estate was second to none. He made buying a house easy and fun, we are so thankful we found him. Chris & Tana W.
DJ is an exceptional agent! He worked with me and always offered great advice to my benefit. As a first time buyer I was a bit scared but DJ eased that tension and did his magic and got me my house! I will most definitely recommend DJ to everyone I know!!! Thank you Redfin and DJ for making this experience great! Carlos Z.
I was a first time home buyer and my experience buying with DJ was flawless. The process from start to finish was easy and stress-free. DJ has great knowledge of the market in the Denver-Metro area, including Highlands Ranch. He will go above and beyond and will make it seem like you're the only client he has. I can't express how grateful I am to have had an amazing experience in the buying process and would highly suggest using DJ to buy or sell your house. Ciara H.

For Sale By Owner - A Good Idea?

FSBO (pronounced fizz-bo), or For Sale By Owner, is a way of selling your home without the use of a professional real estate agent or broker. The idea behind FSBO is that by selling your home yourself, you save the approximate 6% that would be the agents’ commission.

6% may not sound like a lot, but it can add up, especially on more expensive homes. But before you run off and decide to sell your home FSBO, you must remember that to get a savings like that, there must be a cost. So what’s the catch? Selling FSBO is hard. A lot harder.

Only about 10% of sellers that decide to do FSBO are successful at it. And not all of them end up saving themselves money. FSBO sellers often end up accepting a lower price for their home than they would with an agent.

There are of course other issues as well. Can you afford to make selling your home your full-time job? Because for a lot of FSBO sellers, that’s exactly what it is. Do you have the time and capital to spend on the marketing, advertising, inspections, paperwork, phone calls, showings, and problems that come up when any home is sold?

Selling with a professional agent also has other advantages. An agent can get your home listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and other popular websites where not only homebuyers but also other agents can easily find it. Professional real estate agents also have an extensive network that allows them to more easily find a buyer.

So before you decide to sell your home yourself, thoughtfully consider just how much time and effort you can spare for selling your home, as well as how important it is that your home sell sooner rather than later.
