Audra Loccisano
RE/MAX Select
About Audra

I understand how stressful it can be when it is time to move. Saying goodbye to the place where you have lived for years and have so many memories, getting comfortable within your new surroundings and meeting all new people can be difficult. Leaving Long Island and moving to Rahway has personally helped me relate to the people that I come into contact with on a daily basis. Having gone through those trials and tribulations has helped me become the agent I am today. It has helped me take away a lot of the anxiety that most homeowners and homebuyers experience. I strongly believe that it's not only my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability but to also educate them before, and during the process so they're equipped with the information they need to make the best decisions possible. I am a candidly polite, dedicated and motivated full time real estate agent. Making my clients happy is my top priority and I always have their best interest in mind.

During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Cranford?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
