Allison Van Wig
Van Wig and Assoc-KW
About Allison

When searching for a real estate agent, the first thing you need to consider as a seller is: how do they market their existing listings? As for me, you can Google my name - Allison Van Wig - to see some of the inventive ways that I market my properties. I have proudly served the Long Beach and Lakewood communities for over 30 years. I am passionate about finding new ways to serve my client’s needs. As a seller, you need to have your property exposed in the best possible way. I recognize how each home must be showcased in its own unique way. As a buyer, you need an agent that knows their territory like the back of their hand. An agent that will find you the best home possible; one that fits your specific budget and meets all of your expectations. In conclusion … your choice of who you hire is a very personal one. Selling and buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions that you will ever make. If you want to make the best move of your life, let me work for YOU!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Gardena?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Gardena?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Gardena 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 in Gardena 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.
