Why Taunee and her Lions Realty Group Team?

Her Team's Motto is: "Catch a Passion for helping others and a richer life will come back to you!" William H. Danforth, Founder of Ralston Purina
We would never do you the disservice of taking pricing lightly - correct pricing is too important. Your home is special and unique. Your home represents a certain lifestyle and we will market accordingly in order to reach the best prospective buyers. We carefully review recent relevant property sales, evaluate other homes with which your house will be competing, analyse current market statistics, and then our Team come back to you to discuss the recommended Strategic Marketing Price. 

Her Team's Approach: We tell our Listing's Stories with Numbers. Taunee had the highest sold price per square foot for the 1st part of 2019 in Venice of LAC2 - Single Family use andd has a consistent record of selling properties above comps at the time of sale, by using Pricing Psychologu and Price Branding.
