I’m Matt, I’m Shannon.
We’re from Salt Lake City, Utah and we decided to sell our house because Matt wanted to go back to school. So, initially looking at the comparables we decided to list our house at a certain price, and I wasn’t exactly sure it was going to sell at that price. So, day 1 we had, I don’t know, 6 showings day 1 and maybe 10 the next day. With that, all the showings, we had 6 offers within the first 2 days and 4 of them were above asking price. So we actually were able to get an offer almost $25,000 dollars more than our asking price, which was way more than we’d ever have hoped for. Inspection requests list, they had a whole long list of $10,000 worth of repairs and Joel negotiated things and was able to get the list down. We only ended up paying about $1,600 worth of credit towards the sellers. We didn’t even have to do the repairs.
I really, really liked the marketing side of it. I feel like, sometimes, that when you put it with other agents, or whatever, they just kind of half do things, but…
He came and did a video walk-through, and he had professionals take pictures of it. It was pretty much as easy as that! I liked the professional photos, it made the house look really nice.
Yeah! And they had our own personal website page, they posted it on Facebook, and had me post it on Facebook, and all my friends were posting it on Facebook! So, so many people saw the listing!
A big blurb about the house. And all avenues were covered! You could find it on Facebook, you could find it on YouTube, you could find it on Google, you can find it on wherever you look you would be able to find our listing! And it wouldn’t be the 5th or 6th down. It would be number 1! And so that helped, having a lot of people see it. And I think that’s the reason why we were able to get more than our asking price is because there was so much interest in the house. If there wasn’t that much interest in the house, there’s no way we could have gotten it. And multiple offers! Multiple offers!
Another reason why Joel and Ann are awesome, is all the updates! We knew exactly who was viewing the house, I knew exactly what they thought of it after they viewed the house, we knew exactly what was going on! Every week we got an update and we knew where we were in the process, and so we didn’t have to be like, “I wonder what’s going on?” We already knew. That’s true!
So, call Joel and Ann because they’re really easy going, and they’re really awesome. They get along. Hard working! They’re very hard working! They’ll work for you and you know that they’re working for you! That’s what I’ve noticed, a difference in our past experiences.

I was trying to get into a house that was bigger and so we had to rent this out and we were losing money and so this (selling the house) has been phenomenal for us.
Once we’ve found Joel & Ann, this has been awesome. We loved the attention to detail and just the communication with us.
You got two competing offers. You can’t do better than that. No, no. Multiple offers! We initially were just going to take one round and just go with it and then after talking to you and Joel , we decided to do a competition and ended up earning us our original asking price which has been huge. So your advice and counsel was great.
So the big difference between you guys and other agents for us was that it felt like that everyone else just threw us on the MLS. That’s all that they did. They put you on the MLS, throw you on Zillow and KSL and move on. You never talked to them; I mean we got no communication, no feedback.
Yeah, we noticed the difference I think immediately with Joel as he went through the presentation of how you would market the property, all the different points that you would use to try and find buyers. The communication is the key that we would able to see what was going on. What marketing was happening, how many hits we were getting. If you had talked to anyone I knew that immediately. I mean those were just huge helps.
I liked how many different things you could do to put our house out there so people could see it and want to look through it so I think that was the first step. Before It’s there but no one knew about it I guess.
Just the little details the Google docs, the aerial photo, and the video of the property. I saw the video and I wanted to buy it.
I think the fact that you’ve asked that question is just a testimony to how good of a realtor that you are. I don’t think that you guys could have done anything differently. I think it was wonderful. It was wonderful from the beginning to end.
I’d gotten to a point that we’ve been through enough realtors so in the beginning I was hesitant and leery of any realtor to be honest with you. I’d got to the point where I didn’t trust any of them. And so I think, as much as I liked the presentation I still had that bad taste in my mouth. Here we go again- Hopefully this is going to be different. Hopefully they’ll actually follow through on their promises. And now being on the back end of it, you guys lived up to every promise and exceeded. And we had yet to have a realtor even fulfill the basic promises.
Well, congratulations and enjoy your life without a condo to worry about. (Yeah!)

“Within 3 days there was 4 showings, one offer, and under contract the next day”

I’m Lindee and I’m Craig. And our house was in Huntsville Utah. When we listed our home with the previous REALTOR, the listing was the same or maybe even $5,000 dollars less. And the activity, there was less than a handful of showings in 10 months and within 3 days there was 4 showings, one offer, and within 5 days an accepted offer. The marketing that Joel and Ann did for us, was a lot different than what we’ve had with our other agent. They had aerial views of our house, which was really cool and took some good professional pictures. You did a lot of things that we didn’t knew we were doing.
I like the way that the video was put together. It was popping! To me it made sense and if I was looking for a home in the Ogden Valley I would definitely look into it. Yeah, that was cool, definitely, and the walk through video of the house.
It was a compliment that you and Ann work together, you knew each other’s roles. I have never met Ann, and you worked together to sell the home. I always saw correspondence with Ann on the email and I texted her little bit. You both know your role and worked really well as a team. Almost like you were married. You are! We’re satisfied customers and we appreciate all you’ve done to help us sell our home.

Hi, my name is Paul Dickamore and we recently used Joel and Ann Zieve to sell a home.
For us initially had it listed with a flat fee realtor, the challenge that we faced is that we got no support. We received an offer that we accepted at full price. The underwriter found some difficulties in the application and they passed the closing date and so we pulled it and got talking and decided to engage with some realtors that would offer us all the services and Joel and Ann’s name was mentioned and they have a great reputation so we selected them.
They shared with us before we signed the paperwork what they would do in the way of marketing the property. We were very impressed. They shared with us a book that they authored. They made a lot of really neat suggestions and we actually raised the listing price from what it previously been listed at their suggestion by about five percent. We felt like we would end up with a bidding war with the house with the marketing that they were going to do.
We received seven offers. The offer that they suggested that we accept was substantially over the asking price by like fifteen percent. And we ended up netting more after all the fees than we would have getting full price prior to paying any fees on the first attempt to sell one home.
We have loved working with Joel and Ann. Their communication has been outstanding their professionalism is unbelievable and their marketing skills are incredible as well. I would highly recommend if you’re considering listing your home that you consider Joel and Ann Zieve as your real estate professionals and list with them.
The knowledge you had of the selling process and what you anticipated would happen was right on track and you brought forth points that we never would have thought of. Your service and your communication is just outstanding and your market knowledge and obviously your experience and buying selling numberless properties over your career was evident in everything that you did.

So, Ann contacted us and asked if she could list it and I, I’m leery about Real Estate Agents and so I said, well, I have a piece of property to sell. If you sell the property, then I’ll consider you to sell the house, cause I want a Real Estate Agent that’s serious about what he or she is selling. And Ann did. She took over and got all kinds of contacts, people giving us offers. And she sold it in a very short time, and I was impressed. We’re so happy that we chose her and her husband because all the way through the process she kept us informed constantly, on a weekly basis. It was just constant, bringing people through the home. And the other Real Estate Agents would, in the past, it was kinda like “List it with us, and we’ll hope that if somebody wants exactly that house, they’ll call us and sell it”. But, in this case, Ann sold it for us. I felt good enough about how we were treated that we referred a couple of other friends. She sold their houses too, so we’re very impressed. I don’t think you’ll ever find…
It’s the personal relationship we have.
I don’t think you’ll ever find another Real Estate Agent that would do better for you than Ann and her husband.
It was a very personal relationship. And I never felt pressured. An offer came through; I just so appreciated that she would give us all information that we needed to make an educated decision. And she was willing to talk it through. Sometimes it was a half a dozen times she would have to repeat the same thing over again because we had never been this route and it was new to us. And I think more than anything, I just enjoyed the association, the relationship.
She met with us numerous times, and every time she’d call up and say, “Ok, I’ll be there at 10:00,” “ I’ll be there at 11:30.” You could look at the clock and within 1 minute, one side or other the time she said she’d be there she would ring the doorbell! I’ve never seen anybody so punctual!

We ran out of space in the house, it’s too small for us. We have two kids and only two bedrooms so we needed more than that.
We went through three different Realtors before you guys and it didn’t work out. Because we also had planned on selling my house and then buying a new house. So with all three of them we had really bad experience. Like I mentioned to you before, one of them I look up houses online and they would just show me whatever they want, not what I wanted to see. And there was another person that was barely starting to help people in the Real Estate industry, so he would try to push us into buying something much bigger than what we needed and much expensive than what we can afford. And the last person, it was a really bad experience because he didn’t take care of us and our money. We lost two thousand dollars!
I like that it has been very easy to communicate with you guys. The thing that I like the most is the signing; yes, the electronic. I don’t have to be driving and like setting up times, especially with my work that I work a lot, 5 days a week. I don’t have that much time to meet up with people and then have these kind of meetings for signing. So, it has been really great to just sign online.
Yes, it was great because even my parents and some other people that I know have sold houses and it has been kind of frustrating. But with my house I could say you got it on Google, I can Google it and I will see the pictures, I had a website, I can find it pretty much everywhere! So it was real easy!
I feel like you listen to us, me and my husband, and what we like, you take notes. So that’s really important to me because you’re looking at houses for us, not for what you want to sell. That’s what I like the most!
Thank you so much, on behalf of my family too, thank you!

My name is Steven Clarke and Linda, my wife, and I decided to sell we concluded that we would move to Florida. We have had a dear friend who was a realtor he did many good things we appreciated his service a great deal but the house didn’t sell. So that listing expired and when we were looking for the next step forward we interviewed a half a dozen of the best realtor outfits that we knew and the best realtors we had heard of. And we selected the Zieve’s because we felt that the marketing that they do in terms of positioning the house and promoting that position with the video walkthroughs, the feedback to us was important because we hadn’t had as good of feedback form the last experience. They knew the internet and it was clear to us that they were focused on internet marketing. And we had become convinced that internet marketing was the way that most people see their home, their new home for the first time. They really prepared good material including the Ariel photography, including the narrated walkthrough, including the description of the property. We had 800 square feet of the house tied up in an art studio and that was the portion that stumped most people they weren’t creative enough to see how they could use that. But, Zieve’s marketed it as a house with a studio right up front and so when the folks started showing up to come through the house they were qualified. The 3 weeks it took to get a contract on the house was all productive. It was excellent work on their part, we are very happy, a successful marketing plan in every regard. But we wish we had found Zieve’s first instead of second. It would have saved us 6 months. We are very appreciative of the professional way they performed their job. We are very appreciative of the feedback that we received each week we received feedback, that was in detail but not personal. They employed all the right tools it seemed to us, advanced tools, better than any that we had seen earlier in our experiences in buying and selling houses.

I’m very happy, and very excited, I thought the process was pretty easy. You know once we picked out the house and started going we had it done really quick. That was the best part, you know, getting that out of the way and being able to move on to my live, you know, move into the house and make it my own. The process was great, you know, I felt that sometimes I was picky at what I wanted, you know, there was a lot of different things that I wanted in a home and we were able to find all of them. I am really happy about that. Every time I think about the house I get a smile on my face. You did a great job.
You know you are going to be the first name that pops up because; you were very patient with me, you know, you were always there giving me updates, letting me know what was going on, following up on homes, you know. It made the process a lot easier, and as a first time home buyer you go in not knowing a lot and so working with somebody who is patient with you, kind of lets you understand there are going to be bumps in the road and works with you like that. It’s been great.
I learned a lot through you. I learned a lot through the lender. It’s been interesting; you grow up learning about, hearing about people having hard times with their houses, hard times with their loans, or the search. When you get there and you find out its easy, it’s pretty great. A lot about the process you don’t understand, and there are a lot of things that you have been able to help me with. I know, you know, the amount of documentation I get sent I just stare at it like ohm, you know, what is this so… It helped with that.

My name is Chris Iverson and we are moving from the beautiful Ogden Valley. I work for the government and I got a reassignment and promotion.
Yep, and I am Barb Iverson. We hired Ann and Joel Zieve to be our realtor because I saw their houses being sold within 3 months and I thought, wow that’s great, because I’ve seen a lot of houses stay on the market here in the valley. It is always better to get your real estate transaction completed in a timely fashion.
The best part about the marketing plan: the first image we saw was the aerial footage. The realization that how important the aerial view of the residence is for a successful sale and when we first saw the video that was pretty phenomenal.
Yeah, I agree I think the drone footage I think was wonderful as well as Ann’s video. I thought that was great and the way everything was put together, and presented, and the professional photos. I thought all of that added up to being an excellent marketing tool.
We really appreciated Ann’s time where she came in and she went from room to room and helped us – what we needed to do to present it for showing. She really helped us present the house in a very marketable fashion. We were a little hesitant being mid-winter, boy were we surprised! We put it on the market on Thursday and by Sunday night, 3 days after, we had 5 offers.
I think we had 6 total.
So we were ready to work one on one with the highest offer and not counter with a single offer, but with the highest, we asked them what is their best and highest offer.
It was an amazing experience; I had never done anything like that before.
And the folks that wanted the property the worst, they countered with $11,000 over our asking price and we were shocked again!
You said you came from an investment background and I think that really has helped with the negotiating and the knowledge of marketing.

We wanted to move to a warmer climate. My body doesn’t seem to agree with the weather, and cold is not fun for me so we’ve decided to move to Florida.
Speed wise was great too! We only showed for, what, a month. Felt like we always knew what was going on, and that we would know what the next steps were.
It was awesome! It was nice that it was very social media friendly and so we were able to share it online, and stuff. We did get a couple people come to look at it from social media. And I loved that when we arranged the showings and stuff it was all like, I would get a text, or phone call, or whatever and so I always knew what was going on and could be prepared.
We’ve been telling people that you’re awesome! That Ann is awesome, and Joel is awesome! And that you guys made our house look really great online and everything!
That’s one thing we heard from our friends was that, how cool the aerial shots were of the home and going through the home tour was really neat. And it had a nice layout of the house available for people to see, instead of just wondering how everything lined up with pictures and stuff.
Well, with us looking at new homes in Florida it’s so hard to figure out what the house really looks like, and the layout and everything. It was so nice that our home, to sell, was great that way. I didn’t like having to be there when the people were coming to see the house. Because they always have, like, negative comments or whatever, and I don’t want to hear that about my house. So, it was way better to have just a Realtor come and show them and us not to have to worry about it. It was a really good experience.
Good experience!
