   RESULTS-ORIENTED NEGOTIATION

Negotiation begins before a contract is written. In fact, negotiation begins the moment a buyer considers a property or a seller becomes aware of an interested buyer. Milana's negotiation strategies customized to the deal or the agent on the flipside are a key element in the art of the deal. 

The relationship a Realtor holds with the Realtor on the flip side of the transaction is a key determining factor on whether the offer is accepted or whether the seller is willing to sell.

Milana has focused on her integrity and professionalism in every transaction to make sure that when she works with other agents her clients benefit. And that’s why in multiple offer situations, Milana has a high winning streak.

  EFFECTIVE MARKETING

Every property has a story to tell, a lifestyle to sell or an add-value opportunity to offer. That’s why Milana identifies the types of ideal buyers and targets them with data-driven smart and effective marketing strategies that demonstrates the property “experience” not only locally, but globally. Milana creates a custom strategy based on locating off-market property options for her clients. She has a team of experts and invests into marketing to achieve the ideal outcome.
