JEN BENNETT
BROKER, SRES

I have a deep affection for the Roanoke Valley and its surrounding areas, which holds a special place in my heart as the home of my ancestors, some of the region’s first settlers. Giving back to our community and its people is a core value that drives me. I genuinely care for my customers and believe in providing them with the utmost level of customer service.

With over 14 years of experience in the real estate industry, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of our local market. I pride myself on being well-versed in the intricacies of our industry and the unique aspects of our area. Working with senior clients is one of my areas of expertise, and it is an honor for me to serve their specific needs.

I am dedicated to going above and beyond to achieve my clients’ goals. Whether it means helping them find a home they truly love or approaching sensitive situations, such as listing a property that has been cherished by a family for many years, I am committed to providing the support and guidance necessary.

My family and I reside in the picturesque Smith Mountain Lake Community. My husband Kyle is an IT Director and also owns a thriving Microgreens business. We are blessed with three wonderful boys. Our eldest is currently pursuing his education at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), our middle child has recently graduated from high school, and we homeschool our youngest. Exploring new destinations, embarking on spontaneous adventures, nurturing our garden, tending to our goats and chickens, and showering love on our four pups—Tori, Layla, Clover, and Poppy—are some of the joys that fill our lives.

The first step in listing your home begins with a comparable market analysis of your property. We research sold and pending comparable properties in our Multiple Listing Service. This information reveals sales activity on similar properties. Once we review this information, we schedule a meeting to view your home/property. This visit allows us to evaluate the condition of the property and aids with our pricing strategy.

Most homes can be sold “as is.” We recommend your property be empty or staged accordingly to assure the fastest sale. Our moving division can assist with liquidating valuable items through the consignment store or one of our monthly auctions. Unwanted items or items that have no resale value can be discarded.

Often homes have not been kept up to current market standards and may require updating to be sold competitively. For example, sometimes worn carpeting can be removed and hardwood floors polished or refinished to increase buyer appeal. Most often, undesirable odors can be eliminated with thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Overgrown trees and shrubs can be trimmed or removed to enhance curb appeal. If making improvements is not feasible, an adjustment can be made to the selling price to include an allowance for the new owner to make the necessary improvements themselves.

When you list your property with us, we will place an electronic lockbox on the property. This will only allow licensed agents access to the property. We can track who utilizes the lockboxes and follow up for feedback from all showings. We can also place a coded box for inspectors, contractors, and our moving division. Our cleaning teams can prepare the residence for sale, even taking items to the landfill or filling a dumpster if necessary.

When the house is ready to be listed, we have the home professionally photographed. These photos will be placed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and will be used for advertising. Every 30 days, activity is evaluated. Comments from potential buyers and real estate professionals are collected and shared. Our goal is to have the property sold in the shortest amount of time for the most amount of money.

We will coordinate agent/buyer showings, negotiate all offers, facilitate purchase contracts, secure financing as needed, and ensure that all necessary paperwork is routed to the settlement company.

We handle all of the required inspections as necessary to satisfy any and all lender requirements such as home inspections, termite inspections, water, sewer, septic inspections or well water tests. We obtain estimates from contractors, and, with your approval, oversee any and all necessary repairs.

Moving and selling a family home can be one of the most stressful experiences in one’s life. At Crowning Touch Realty, we are dedicated to providing the service you deserve and expect. We look forward to working with you!
