Carol Juntunen - Broker Associate & REALTOR®
These words can be scary to those facing real estate decisions. But I can help make these aspects of a real estate transaction less intimidating. Most important, you won't have to face these decisions alone. I'll be with you every step of the way, guiding you to make confident, informed real estate decisions.
I bring extensive negotiation, sales and management skills from more than 20 years’ experience working for a Schaumburg-based Fortune 500 company. Add to that my home improvement expertise and business acumen as the owner of a home repair and improvement business, and you’ve got an experienced advocate and real estate partner. I’ll make it easier for you to achieve your goal to sell your house or purchase a home.
How I make real estate easier:
Determining the value of your property in today’s fast moving market depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence. As a Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), I understand how a compelling price offers you the best chance to get the greatest return in the least amount of time.
Preparing your home for the market might mean moving furniture, clearing clutter and even making minor repairs and upgrades. With a background in art, home repairs and improvements and as a Certified Staging Consultant (CSC), I can help prepare and stage your house to get it photo and showing ready!
Your house is unique, so I’ll develop a customized plan designed to put the full power of Baird & Warner’s vast marketing resources to work for you! And as an internet marketing expert (e-PRO), I excel in social media marketing and I keep pace with the ever-growing technology landscape to promote your house on the internet.
There’s an art to negotiating in order to assure that both parties are satisfied with the outcome of the transaction. This expertise is essential and as a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), I will negotiate strategically on your behalf to ensure that you receive the best price, timing and terms possible.
Have you recently lost a loved one? Or perhaps you're the executor, administrator or trustee of an estate for which real estate needs to be sold? The death of a loved one is always difficult for the family...not only do you have to deal with the emotional turmoil of your loss, you also have to deal with the stress of selling their house.
What should you do with all the stuff in the house? Should you sell the house "as-is"? Or make a few repairs?
If you're overwhelmed trying to get your loved one's house ready to sell, you can turn that job over to me! I’m a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist, and as a part of the services that I offer, I can recommend professionals like consignment, estate sale, junk removal and cleaning companies that can help you with that and more! When you are ready, I hope you will consider contacting me.
Is it time for you to right-size? When life happens and you’ve got too much house, it might be time to think simpler. As a Seniors (50+) Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I understand how life stages, health and economic challenges can impact real estate choices. You may want to age in place, downsize, or sell your house to retire out of state. Let’s explore all your options.
Unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or short sales results. I’ve earned the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR) so I can help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales and foreclosures, as well as help buyers pursue short and foreclosure opportunities.
