Selling your Home is one of the biggest financial decisions you will make in a lifetime. Making sure your home is exposed to the highest number of potential buyers right from the start can mean the difference between a slow and painful waiting game to a quick and profitable sale! Choosing an agent who uses the right tools and technology to market your home properly is essential to making sure your home is sold quickly and for the highest price.
Why choose me?
I don’t just put a sign in your yard and wait for the phone to ring. I use a variety of different tools to market your home correctly and quickly to get it maximum exposure and attention.
The 3 most common questions I get asked by home sellers:
- What is the value of my home?
- How fast can you sell my home?
- How will you market my home to get it sold?
The answers to these questions vary from REALTOR® to REALTOR®, which is why making sure you choose a real estate agent that KNOWS the local market your home is in and is not stuck in the old marketing ways of the past is so important. Many agents won’t even tell you what they will do for you until they step into your home. That is where I am different. Here are just a few of the things I can do when you choose to list your home with me.
Pricing Your Home & the MLS
Accurate pricing sells homes! Price your home too high and your home won’t sell. Drop your price and people wonder why your home isn’t selling and you look desperate. I am committed to making sure your home enters the market with the right price so you get MAXIMUM interest in your home from the start. This means more interest in your home from a larger number of buyers which could lead to multiple offers resulting in it selling faster and for more money!
NEW listings get tons of hits in the first few days meaning your home will be at its peak potential for selling from the minute it hits the MLS. List it with bad photos or inaccurate information and interest goes down. Entering it with complete information, a great description, and beautiful photos are essential to the success of selling your home. The first time a potential buyer sees your home will typically be online. Whether that is through my website, Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, or some other site, it all starts with the MLS. I am committed to MLS Listing Quality. This means I make sure your property is entered into the MLS correctly the FIRST time. Done properly, you will have the possibility of many more buyers competing for your property giving you more offers to choose from.
Setting the Stage
Did you know that it’s a proven fact that staged homes often sell faster & for more money? Staging your home right is essential to getting the price you want! I offer staging services to all of my clients. I will go through your home with you, room by room, and give you suggestions to help you prepare your home for sale and make adjustments inside & out that will create a buzz of interest around your home making it irresistible to potential buyers. I also work with professional staging experts that you can hire to stage your home to perfection.
Professional Photos & Drone Photography*
Realtor.com reported almost 90% of buyers start their search online. That means your home’s first impression is through pictures. Low-quality photos or photos that do not complement your home will turn off any potential buyers and result in fewer showings. When a buyer sees your home online, the photos should make them want to come and see your home in person. You want the photos to be professional, high quality / high resolution, clear and crisp and show off your home’s best qualities. I offer photography services to every client with knowledgeable and experienced photographers who know how to showcase your home in the most pleasing way to attract more buyers and get more showings.
Virtual Tours are proven to bring buyers into your home and weed out potential looky-loos. Showings can be stressful and time-consuming for your whole family. Using a virtual tour can save you time and money by giving potential buyers a preview of your home thereby weeding out buyers who would normally waste your time and efforts. Full motion virtual video tours create maximum interest to increase buyer curiosity drawing more showings by serious buyers.
Did you know that networking is the fastest way to get your home in front of thousands of potential buyers? Social media is important to getting your home maximum exposure. I actively network on all of the major social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Linkedin, Instagram, Youtube, and more. Once your property goes on the market, I announce it via these online venues and then keep marketing it to update the status and keep it fresh in the public eye.
Single Property Landing Pages
I offer my sellers Single Property Websites. This means your home gets its own web page so you can share it with your friends and on Social Media! This page is dedicated to showcasing your home’s best features and includes large high-quality photos, school information, maps & directions, additional details, and more. I also use this page to help market your home and get it out to the public so that potential buyers are dazzled with their first impression of your house!
Last year mobile searchers exceeded desktop users. In today’s market, more than 70% of home buyers will view your home from their mobile phones. I am committed to keeping up with today’s changing technology. When listing with me, your property will be available in a mobile-friendly format so that no matter whether a buyer is looking at it on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, they will be viewing it in a friendly responsive format that will be pleasing to the eye and easy to use.
Text Technology is fast becoming the best way to sell homes faster! Many agents are stuck in the old days of CRM’s and Email marketing, but I know better! Only 20% of emails get opened but 99% of text messages are opened and read! Your home should be easily accessible from a mobile phone for potential buyers driving by your home. I employ a text technology by adding a Sign Rider on your for sale sign offering more information by texting a phrase to a certain number. “EXAMPLE: Text SAM to 40691 and receive an instant text with more details on your home.” I then receive data on the inquiry including the phone number of the potential buyer so I can follow up with them and set up a showing.
Not every agent is willing to put forth the time and effort it takes to put on an open house. That’s where I am different. A successful Open House can attract attention from people searching nearby and create a buzz around your home often creating a potential bidding environment. I am trained on Open House tactics to increase interest and highlight your home’s best features while providing you with feedback on potential buyers.
Each property I list is syndicated to over 40 top real estate websites online including Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Homes.com, HomeFinder.com and on my local website. This means your listing will receive the maximum exposure online and will be visible to thousands of local buyers searching in your market.

See what my clients are saying:
Dee Dee was wonderful.
Very knowledgeable in all aspects. Highly recommend her.
We were extremely pleased to have selected Dee Dee Zor and her company for our real estate needs in listing our Fiddler’s Green condo.
She is courteous, kind, energetic, professional, extremely responsive and always represented our interests. Dee Dee is very knowledgeable of the Englewood area real estate market and prepared a first class listing for our property including the use of professional photography as promised. We listed in the Fall of 2019, but required a fairly late closing of mid-April 2020. Dee Dee was very accommodating of our late closing in spite of potentially missing out on the snowbirds wishing to buy who would want to take possession during the desirable Florida winter season. Having to work with us from a distance as we are Canadian residents as well as dealing with multiple owners, as we co-owned with my sister and brother-in-law did not deter Dee Dee. She was able to find us a buyer in November that would accept our closing date as well as negotiated a good selling price. Closing the sale was complicated due to the COVID-19 pandemic as we could not travel to Florida for a final walk through to remove some personal items and to sign closing documents, but Dee Dee was there for us. Dee Dee did a walk through of our condo with us, using Facebook video messenger and removed these items and helped us to complete all documents remotely. Without hesitation we very highly recommend choosing Dee Dee as your real estate agent.
Hi Dee Dee: It was such a pleasure working with you over the past couple of months.
You were always professional, considerate, and caring (to say nothing about fun). We had such a positive result too: Imagine selling the condo from the first open house. I hope all your other endeavors go as well. Keep in touch.
Although we have never met in person, phone calls, texts and emails were all wonderful experiences.
Dee Dee was recommended through a third party. Efficient, thorough, professional and above all patient. From listing to closing she kept me in the loop and made sure all went smoothly.
Dee Dee is a true professional in every sense of the word but she is also so much more.
She is knowledgeable, warm, courteous and will respond to your every need promptly. This woman knows about properties that haven’t even been listed yet. She will fight for the underdog or wow the most affluent clients. I will always remember the top-shelf customer service I received and would not recommend ANY other agent. I have bought and sold numerous properties in my lifetime but never enjoyed the process as I did with Ms. Zor. Thank you Dee Dee.
Because I was selling from out of state, it was a blessing to have Dee Dee there when I couldn’t be.
She kept me well informed and was always happy to answer any questions or concerns I had. After the recent hurricane, she went over to check if there was any damage and let me know that everything was fine. Because the power was out, she even opened my empty fridge and unplugged it to prevent mold. She was really a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her highly.
I trusted my Unit sales to Dee Dee because I have know her for several years.
She did not disappoint me in handling my 3 properties that I decided to sell. She sold two of my units through listing and then stepped up to assist in the paperwork of a third unit which I sold myself. This is going above and beyond for which I am grateful for her professionalism but even more so for her years of friendship. Thank you Dee Dee and hope to get with you on the Tennis Courts again next season.
Do you want to get it done right?
For the third time in a little more than a year Dee Dee has helped our family when we decided to sell a condo in Englewood, FL. Professional, fast, smart, honest and very much client focused.

It was a pleasure to work with Dee Dee!
It was very easy to communicate and every question was addressed quickly and we felt very comfortable and stress free. Thank you Dee Dee for your help!
This was our third experience in working with Dee Dee.
She was extremely helpful with this sale as we were out of state. The sale went smoothly and she was very helpful all along the way. Would most certainly recommend her.
My wife and I are exceptionally pleased to add this testimonial to Dee’s growing list of well deserved accolades.
She handled a difficult sale with speed, professionalism, and financial success for the sellers (us). It was refreshing to have someone take care of the myriad of details, keep us informed at every decision point, and close the deal without us having to worry about the pitfalls of real estate sales and/or transfers of title. She is a true professional in every sense of the word, and we would highly recommend her services to anyone and everyone.
When we had decided to list our unit we first looked at realtor reviews and testimonials.
We were impressed with the rave reviews for Dee Dee. Heeding the reviews and going with her was the best thing we could have done. From the minute we began the process to the closing Dee Dee was very informed, terrific to work with, and incredibly professional. Her response to every question or concern was immediate. She brought in qualified buyers with reasonable offers. We can’t say enough about our experience with Dee Dee. If we could give 10 stars we would!!
We asked Dee Dee to sell our condo because she so impressed us when she was the agent for the seller when we bought the condo.
She was amazingly fair and supportive to all concerned. This time, Dee Dee promptly responded to our request and expertly put together the contract, making sure we understood all the particulars of the contract to sell our condo. She expertly worked with us to set the best price and went to work immediately and we had a full asking price offer in two days! Dee Dee stayed with us to complete the sale and keep us informed and represent us expertly throughout the entire process. We were reflecting on our history with real estate agents over the years and truly find her at the top as the very best, for service, knowledge, and personal attributes of impressive people skills.
I highly recommend Dee Dee for anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.
Dee Dee is extremely knowledgeable and has lots of experience in Florida real estate and makes the process go smoothly. Thank you for all your wonderful advice and continued help throughout this process!!
DeeDee Zor, What perfect agent, she sold our home in two says.
DeeDee know we wanted to sell at some future time and keep abreast of the market and suggested we sell now base on supply and demand. She was so right!! During the course of the process Dee was covering our back. She always answered the phone, if not immediate within a very short period of time. My wife and I really appreciated her counseling and area knowledge. I have both bought and sold six homes and DeeDee is the best agent I’ve ever dealt with.
Under difficult circumstances we has to make a decision on our property in Englewood Fl. We contacted Dee Zor and she helped us begin the process. From the very beginning we felt complete trust with Dee. She answered all our questions and was an enormous help with paper work and was always available to us. Dee went above and beyond our expectations and things were handled smoothly and efficiently from 1500 miles away. Thank you Dee for your knowledge and expertise.

Dee Dee is just as confident and focused as an agent as she was when I played doubles with her on the tennis courts!
She was the first one I thought of when selling my parents’ home in Punta Gorda. She came to the house, assessed and understood our situation in short order, and made a plan of action. Throughout the process she communicated with me each step of the way, taking care of every detail. Very professional, responsible and went the extra mile. Thank you Dee Dee. Hope to see you on the courts! FIVE STARS!
Dee Dee was instrumental in helping my family sell my parents house in Placida.
She navigated us through a complex situation with a can-do attitude. During the process, my father passed away and we had to move my mother back to Massachusetts. Dee Dee was able handle the process of finding and hiring contractors, dealing with the mountains of paperwork, and just handling everything for us so we could concentrate on my mother’s life-changing situation. We couldn’t have done it without her! She is very professional with a great attitude. I would highly recommend Dee Dee to anyone.

We first worked with Dee Dee from 1500 miles away and she made it feel like we were right next door.
She sent a great appraisal which it made our decision very easy. Once we decided she was the one, the house was listed and sold in less than 24 hours for full price. Being far away, Dee Dee continued to work with us in helping us with storage units and even finding two young men to help us move. Still continuing to work with we, she sent us many pictures of house through email making it easy for us narrow the search for a new house when we arrived in Florida. Buying the next house was done in 48 hours. She was outstanding.
Dee Dee was an outstanding agent to work with.
She provided many services that we as absentee owners could not do. These included staging, excellent marketing material, knowledge concerning price and competition. Tile work was required before closing and Dee Dee provided access to an excellent contractor work was able to complete the work in time. She and husband Jeff even helped us empty items in the condo. If you want a knowledgeable, honest, personable and hard working agent, I suggest you use Dee Dee Zor.
Selling in Florida and living in Canada we expected a few hurdles due to covid and differences in how offers are done.
