Ooltewah’s Listing Team

You should not decide on an agency until you have given us a call and heard what we do for all our clients.

TD Team Strengths

Here are some ways Team Darmody can help you sell your home.

Market Analysis of Your Propery

You set your sale price, but having a proper maket analysys in your hand is an absolute must. We will compare your home – to those who have sold recently, within close proximity and that have the same size, configuratrion and age. This is the only way to get a clear assessment of the range of value the market places on your home. Setting your price within this market range is the difference between showings, offers and a quick sale. Without it you are only guessing what the market will bear and what buyers will pay for your home. You want a real live skilled person doing the research.

Home Preparation & Staging Help

When you’re ready to sell, staging puts your home’s best foot forward. De-cluttering and de-personalizing common rooms ins imprtant to the process. Steve will walk you through the benefits of staging and show you techniques that will attract the right buyer for your home.
Remember the 60-second rule: That’s all the time you have to create a winning first impression. Having Steve’s insights can put you ahead of the game.

Marketing Your Home

This is where some agents stand tall among a host of hobby agents who won’t or can’t do the level of marketing Team Darmody does for every home. Few have the the skills package that allows TD to shape and polish your online presents. TD is responsible to see that all those who begin their search online for a new home will find yours popping up EVERYWHERE. Professional Photography, a landing website, social media and google search ads, printed brocures hand delivered in your community, mass emails to agents as well as to the TD local database and even a highway billboard.


Designed to capture the maximum exposure for your home in the shortest period of time, Team Darmody will implement a proven marketing plan.

  • Price your home strategically so you’re competitive with the current market and price trends.
  • Advise you on the best ways to stage your home to cast a positive light on the features most important to buyers: uncluttered rooms and closets, fresh paint, and terrific curb appeal.
  • Provide Professional Photography that captures the emotion of what it will be like living in your home.
  • Produce a virtual walk-thru video tour of your home, placing it on multiple websites to attract both local and out-of-town buyers.
  • Provide a pre-listing Vital Components Home Inspection.  If needed, recommend contractors and vendors to help prepare the home for showing.
  • Create a customized website exclusively for your listing. Giving potential home buyers an intimate in-depth look at the hidden features and lovely attributes of your home that MLS can’t convey.
  • Place a personalized “FOR SALE” sign with Steve’s picture and cell phone number for drive-by prospects.
  • Distribute “just listed” notices to neighbors, encouraging them to tell family and friends about your home.
  • Optimize your home’s Internet presence by posting information in the Keller Williams Listing System (KWLS), as well as in local and global MLS systems.

  • Advertise your home in the local real estate magazine, email campaigns, and social media which target active buyers and investors.
  • Use the latest technology to optimize the online presence of your listing and move you to the top of searches.

There are many facets to a listing agent’s job. We work closely with the seller and provide a bevy of services. However, not every agent works the same way. Our Marketing Plan is designed to capture the maximum exposure for your home in the shortest period of time and get it SOLD!  But the bulk of our work that affects you the most is what happens from the time you sign a contract to when you sit at the closing table.

This is our pledge:

  • Provide you with weekly updates detailing my marketing efforts, including comments from the prospective buyers and agents who have visited your home.
  • Present and advise sellers of all offers
  • Negotiate the highest possible selling price
  • Coordinate the purchase process with inspectors, attorneys, appraisers, title company agents, and others.
  • Verify buyer eligibility to purchase

In short, Team Darmody will make the home selling process as easy for the seller as possible.


Here’s a brief look at what we do.

We do what others can’t or won’t do.

360-degree Virtual Tour

A 3-D virtual tour helps potential buyers get a feel for your home.  So instead of a crowd of looky-loos pushing you out of your home every evening, when we schedule a showing it’s a good bet that the buyers are actually interested and ready to take the next step.

Custom Signage

A custom designed yard signs gives your home the look of quality and attracts attention.

Depending on the location we often use reflective signs or solar powered lights to bring attention to your sign at night.

Our Open House signes are used in a half mile radius to give people a chance to think about attending before they pass the turn for the open house.

Our signs also have customized toppers.
