Listing Your Property

In Marketing... Image Is Everything

 Available to clients are property staging, architectural floor plans, jaw-dropping photography, professional videography & aerial film production, custom marketing pieces and social media. This is powered by technology, internet exposure, multi-state multiple listing service entries, international listing syndication and online transaction management. This provides The Designer Realty Group with the ultimate presentation of your asset garnering the highest price, best terms and most desirable offers in the quickest time frame possible. So when you decide to sell your property, please reach out and let’s get started!



You get one chance to make a first impression. Go professional only!  That's why photography done by professionals is vital. Camera phones with bad lighting, done  in 5 minutes to capture one of your most valuable assets just won't do. The more attractive your property appears from the very first time a buyer sees it either online or in print marketing the more they will have to have it! 


Buyers need as much visual help as possible. This includes options.  Layout options. Furniture options. Seeing if the king size bed will fit or even how to use the room besides a bedroom or office options. Sometimes this is crucial in determining if a home is right and can make the deal.


Both international and local buyers enjoy a teaser/virtual pre-view.  Even knowing ahead of time what's in your back yard or your neighbor's back yard can save time or help bring more people in to view a property depending on the setting.  For certain properties we offer this option if it helps garner more attention or will eliminate disappointments ahead of time to minimize objections.


There's nothing like a good old story to make someone feel welcome!  We need people raving about your home and being able to feel themselves living there. Sometimes a picture can tell a thousand words, however it won't make them feel like home and draw them in until you explain the other ways their life can benefit by the lifestyle they'll live there. We'll do it.

We also understand the importance of helping children in the community reach their potential, which is why E Patrice serves as a volunteer mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of Westchester.

Both have grown due to the program and involvement with each other and enriched one another’s lives through experiences that have been fun and educational.
