Jeff Houlihan Luxury Real Estate

Meet Jeff Houlihan

Coming from a family full of successful realtors, real estate was a natural career choice for me. Soon after high school I started working in sales at Fraserway RV. While working there, I loved the job and the amazing people I worked with, however I always felt like my heart was somewhere else. My background in RVs has been a great asset and led to an easy transition into my real estate career. Most importantly, it has given me experience in providing a very high level of service that I continue to apply to my relationships with current clients. 

I believe in treating people fairly and honestly, and that my success comes only by acting in the best interests of my clients. Whether it is your first purchase, a vacation home, or an investment property, I want your experience to be smooth and enjoyable from start to finish.

Our Approach To Luxury Marketing

I am committed to providing a new energy to Luxury marketing in Abbotsford and to change how Luxury residences are being represented. I have been fortunate enough be mentored by one of the best Real Estate Agents in West Vancouver, and have received a hands on education on how Luxury homes should be presented.  


I believe that the Luxury market in Abbotsford is missing something and that it is not being represented to it's full potential. 


I am committed to being at your home for every individual showing to welcome buyers the moment they walk in the door. There will be ambient lighting, appropriate background music will be playing, and a personal tour will be given which will show off all the unique attributes of your residence. This will give the buyer a lasting impression of your property! 

I believe you and your home deserve the absolute best.

An important aspect of selling your home is to identify how it is unique and distinctive from others. Features like ceiling heights, finishings, views, high-end appliances are important pieces to highlight to buyers.

Getting Ready To Sell Your Home

Remove clutter


Having your things nearby may be near and dear to you, but a buyer might be distracted by it, and I can affect the way they see the home. Shelves, countertops, closets, garages, etc. are all spaces that will need to be cleaned out.


You’ll want to create a lot of open space, even in the nooks you think no one can see. Clearing the clutter means tackling:


You’ll want to create a lot of open space, even in the nooks you think no one can see. Clearing the clutter means tackling:


Kitchen: Get rid of the “junk drawer,” clean under the sink and clear the pantry.


Closet: Figure out what items you can do without for a few months and put them in a box. Even if everything fits, you don’t want a closet to look tidy and spacious, not like everything is crammed inside.


Extra furniture: You want to create the illusion of space, and that could require taking out some of the furniture to create more room in your home.


Storage spaces: Even thought they are serving their purpose, areas like the basement, garage, attic or shed need to be cleared as well. Buyers should be able to envision what they would do with the space, and hoarding all of your extra things probably isn’t part of that vision

Fix up the interior

This shouldn’t include any major repairs, but you will want to address potentially noticeable issues, including:


Plumbing and fixtures: Clean or replace fixtures so they are shiny and new-looking; ensure that knobs turn and do not leak; check water pressure; remove water stains


Ceiling, walls and painting: Check for water stains; repair any leaks; consider painting (a shade of white), which can be one of the best investments when selling your home


Carpet and flooring: Unless your carpet is in dire shape, springing for a good carpet cleaning should do the trick. For hard floors, repair or replace broken floor tiles, but remember that the goal is to make the place look presentable, not to spend a ton of money on a space you will no longer live in.


Windows and doors: Ensure windows and doors open easily; replace cracks or broken windowpanes; polish doorknobs


Odor control: If you’re a smoker, you will want to limit smoking indoors while your home is on the market. Pet smells should also be minimized by cleaning litter boxes, keeping dogs outside and using carpet freshener

Fixing up the exterior

Once you’ve tackled the (relatively easier) interior fixes, move on to the outside of the house, which is most important. This is going to be a potential buyer’s first impression, after all. To get a good look, take a stroll across the street and try to take an objective look at the house. See how it compares to the neighbors and the rest of the block. Then get to work on:


Landscaping: Make sure your foliage is on par with the rest of your neighborhood. If it’s not, invest in a few bushes but not trees. Cut the lawn and eliminate any dry or brown spots.


Rake up loose leaves and grass cuttings as needed. In certain times of the year, this could be daily.


Could your house use a paint job? This could be a worthwhile investment on the exterior as well to spruce up the appearance of a house and market it as freshly painted. Make sure you choose a neutral color that fits in with the ones around it.


Focus on the front door. Polish the fixture, refinish or repaint it as needed, spring for a new doormat and make sure the lock works without any trouble.

Testimonials

"I recently bought a house on Eagle Mountain from Jeff Houlihan. Jeff showed me 3 properties and was very knowledgeable about the area. He went out of his way to accommodate my busy schedule and made the process easy and convenient. He worked really hard to get me the house I wanted and was amazing at getting all my questions about the property answered. After the sale Jeff was kind enough to put me in touch with all sorts of local professionals that I was looking for. Jeff really did go above and beyond for me and I would highly recommend him for anyone buying or selling their home. Thanks Jeff!"
