Are you considering selling your home without professional help?


What Every For Sale By Owner Needs to Know:

Real Estate Professionals have been helping sell homes for hundreds of years. In a free market, would the practice of charging a commission last this long if agents weren't bringing value to the client? Now that sellers have choices like Zillow, Trulia,, etc. to help sell homes the process appears to be easier than ever. IT'S NOT!!!

Selling a home is not like selling a car or a widget. Every home is different and people have many different personalities and emotions. Our job as realtors is to help guide buyers and sellers through an often complicated and emotionally challenging process.

In our experience, emotions play a significant role in the majority of real estate transactions. Good agents know how to handle the complexity and often chaotic nature of real estate purchases and help things run smoothly. The process can often be far more complicated than it appears.

Interview The McCarty Team and see what sets us apart. We offer pressure-free consultations and market analyses in Oakland and Macomb Counties.

Here are a few examples of sellers that either tried to sell "by owner" or considered doing so before hiring us:

"The McCartys just sold my family home after I wasted several months trying to sell it myself. Their expertise, market knowledge and sales skills demonstrated to me the value that professional realtors bring to this difficult task. Whether it was their extensive marketing efforts, dilligent follow-through or even the care and attention they paid to making sure the home was always secured (it was unoccupied) they consistently went above and beyond what I had expected. I can recommend The McCarty Team wholeheartedly and without reservation. These are the professionals you want in your corner to sell your home."

"The McCarty Team is real estate excellence! We had initially listed our house For Sale By Owner, but after a month of disappointing showings and constant bombardment of phone calls from pushy realtors wanting to list our house we decided that we needed help, so we chose to use a highly recommended local realtor. The McCarty Team made the entire selling process easy and painless. You can tell that Patti and Dan respect and care about their clients, besides getting us 3 great offers within the first few days it was listed they volunteered to come watch our dog during showings and the inspection so we didn't have to take time off work, or scramble to find someone to watch her last minute. Our house was listed and closed on in under a month, they are a wealth of knowledge, trustworthy, not pushy or just in it for the sale like other realtors. They treat everyone like family, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or by a home in the area!"

"Great team! We were going to try and sell "buy owner" but with all the stress of listing, showing and negotiating with potential buyers...well it seemed overwhelming for us. My husband suggested The McCarty Team since he had seen signs throughout the neighborhood. I called and Patti called me back within minutes. We spoke and set up a meeting I believe the next day. She and Dan both came to look over the house and told us specifically what their strategy would be to sell quickly at the best price. During this process I called and/or texted Patti a lot and never felt like a question or concern was a bother for her. We sold the house before the first open house. I cannot tell you enough how wonderful and caring yet professional these two are. They have the experience and knowledge to really make selling or buying a house a delightful process. Thanks again!"

"I just closed my my home sale today and had a great experience. We originally posted our home FSBO. We marketed the home every way imaginable and for several weeks we had multiple open houses and didn't have an offer. When we contacted the McCarty Team they had a photographer take amazing photos of our home and listed it the next day. By the second day we had multiple offers on the home. They were very helpful in talking us through the nuances of each offer and the deal points to take into consideration. They responded to every text phone call and email more quickly than I would expect, significantly exceeding my expectations. They have a very good understanding of the current market conditions and know the metro detroit area very well. I would highly recommend using them to friends and family without question."
