Why choose DeFourny Realtors to Sell Your Home?

Each Agent at DeFourny Realtors must concentrate on selling their listings, your property. Complete direct involvement. Setting up appointments, Open House Marketing, everything. Under current market conditions, every listing agent should be directly setting the appointments for their listings and directly promoting their clients’ listings. Every phone call regarding a home for sale is a chance to tout the home to prospective buyers and their agents. It is also a key opportunity to find out pertinent information about the buyers. Other Realtors outsource this critical step to save their time! Hiring DeFourny Realtors means direct fulltime service. No third party or out-of-state appointment service companies, no assistants, no part-timers. We personally field every phone call regarding your home and personally set all showing appointments.

A Sign in the Yard!

Any simple real estate ‘for sale’ sign in the yard is still the best, #1 and most important tool to sell a house or property. John DeFourny is the proud owner of the largest personal fleet of real estate signs in Ohio with over 8,000 signs available to the task of selling your property.

Open House Specialists!

DeFourny Realtors sell a lot of properties through Open House. Over 80% SOLD as a direct result of Open House Marketing, Strategy & Promotion. Rarely does a Buyer walk into an Open House and proclaim “they want to buy it.” Most Buyers attend the Open and then set up an appointment to come back later either with their or a DeFourny Realtors agent. Featuring your house Open is our best direct opportunity to personally promote to buyers your house and your neighborhood. Most buyers and neighbors who visit an Open House tend to tell at least one other person about the house.

John DeFourny holds more Open houses than any other agent in Central Ohio. Our Open House Marketing & Strategy yield the highest possible visibility by coordinating our Sunday ads with a wide and sweeping net of signage. DeFourny Realtors averages 5+ signs for each Open House. Our signs lead prospects to Open Houses from different routes, depending on the location. Each Open House also provides the Sellers important information for future strategy and price reduction consideration.

Vacant House?

Our personal touches make our vacant listings glow. We bring low-watt energy efficient lighting to capture the best selling details. Lighting eliminates the appearance of desolation & vacancy from the curb. It restores the charm of curb appeal. Lighting improves security to a property with a sense of occupancy. Most importantly, the lighting improves presentation of the rooms and floor plan when Realtors show the house.
