I know how important it is to have a good reputation in this business. What my past clients say about me paves the way for future business through referrals to their family, neighbors and friends. The quality of service I provide to every client speaks loudly about how well I am perceived and will be remembered.

As a Realtor, I need to be mindful that I must treat all clients the same. Having systems in place and checklists that I use for every transaction helps me keep on top of every step of the transaction from first meeting to contract to settlement and then follow up.

 

Here are some of the recent comments I’ve received that serve as a testimony for the service I provided to my clients.  

Barbara Michaluk Realtor

If you are thinking of selling your home in Leisure World of Maryland, I am an Authorized Leisure World Specialist and have all the resources to help you navigate your sale.

This wonderful Leisure World community located in Silver Spring, Maryland in the heart of Montgomery County is a desirable location for active seniors. My extensive marketing background works for you in reaching more potential buyers.

When you want to sell your Leisure World Maryland Home Call a Leisure World Specialist. 

I'm fully knowledgeable about all the details of this 55+ Leisure World community.  

When selling your home, I will give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace as well as the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. 
These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.

I can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of your property.

I market your property to other real estate agents and the public. 

In many markets across the country, over half of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. 
I act as the marketing coordinator, distributing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics requires REALTORS® to utilize these cooperative relationships when they benefit their clients.

I will know when, where and how to advertise your property. 

There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. NAR studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.

I can help you objectively evaluate every buyer's proposal without compromising your marketing position. 

This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing – and a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR® can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.

I can help close the sale of your home. 

Issues may arise between the initial sales agreement and closing (also called settlement or escrow), for example, unexpected repairs might be required to obtain financing or a title problem is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your REALTOR® is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing. 

 

When it comes to selling your home in Leisure World, I can make the process go faster and smoother. I will sell your Leisure World condo using personal attention and extensive knowledge in marketing.  My state-of-the art marketing strategies will expose your property to more potential buyers and generate more showings.

 

I Am With You Every Step of the Way!

Some units may be sold with indoor garage parking. Additionally, many condo units feature a glass-enclosed sunroom—another pleasant appeal that contributes to a cozy lifestyle.

Each building houses a community room with a kitchen (which is available for private use) and a lending library for residents to share books. Residents also benefit from a social calendar, which keeps them informed on upcoming socials, organized Bridge and Bingo games, and other events held each month.

How to Prevent a Fall - Senior Safety Tips
Barbara Michaluk, Top Producing REALTOR Montgomery County, Maryland (Weichert Realtors, 3816 International Dr, Silver Spring, MD)

How to Prevent a Fall - Senior Safety Tips

 Senior Real Estate Specialist Barbara Michaluk Realtor 240-506-2434

It’s important for seniors to be aware of the potential dangers present in the home and prepare accordingly. A fall could lead to serious bodily damage and pain.  It is best to be diligent and prepare your home to eliminate danger of a fall.

 

Here are some safety tips to do in your home:

  • Be aware of sudden changes in surfaces such as curbs or ramps that can cause a loss of balance and result in a fall.

  • When walking in the dark, a person's balance can be worse.  Use a nightlight or have a lamp near the bed to improve safety when getting up at night.

  • Install power failure lights to prevent walking in the dark. These simple devices can be installed in electrical outlets and are especially helpful near stairs.

  • One cause of dizziness results from sudden changes in position. Clench your hands and wiggle toes prior to standing will reduce this form of dizziness.

  • Remove throw rugs and damaged floor coverings to eliminate falls. 

  • Avoid tripping by removing clutter from all walkways.

  • Keep a phone close by to make it easier to answer the phone.

  • Rearrange furniture to provide a path for ease in walking. It’s best to have a straight walking path, with no furniture to walk around. 

  • Avoid use of extension cords by arranging furniture so that outlets are more easily available for lamps and appliances.

 

Bathroom Safety

  • Leave a light on in your bathroom at night.

  • Use recommended bath aids, securely installed on the walls of the bath/shower stall and on the sides of the toilet.

  • Use of a tub seat or shower chair along with a handheld shower massage with extra-long cord may help avoid slips.

  • If possible, bathe only when help is available.

 Senior safety by Barbara Michaluk Realtor 240-506-2434

Kitchen Safety

  • Keep floors clean and uncluttered.

  • Keep areas well lit.

Call Barbara Michaluk, Realtor at 240-506-2434 to discuss your real estate needs.

I will assist you in the sale of your home and help you locate your next home in Leisure World of Maryland.
