As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
See what clients are saying about Meral -
I recently sold my home in Palm Beach Gardens through Meral Ibrahim. I can't say enough for her professionalism. I have benefitted from using her for both buying and selling real estate. Meral found a previous home for me in 2005 and also worked arduously to find my last home in 2009. In 2017, I listed that home to sell with Meral. I was presented with an acceptable offer just two days after it was listed. It closed harmoniously in less than a month. All three transactions were handled with the highest degree of professionalism. If you want to sell your home or buy a new one, I highly recommend Meral.
My husband and I worked with Meral to purchase our home in West Palm Beach, Florida, and really can't say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months.) She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home can be very challenging, but working with Meral made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend her.
