Remodeling to Sell | Before & After | Divakar



We’re so excited to start 2024 off with a new designation for J&J Real Estate.

We are now Residential Remodeling Specialists® RRS® 

One of the most impactful things this new designation does for our seller clients is to show them how much home improvements will add to their final sales price and decrease their time to sell!

The before & after below is from our friends, the Divakar’s. We helped sell their mid-century home last year and the remodeling transformation was dramatic.

The Divakar’s story

We started a few months before they went on the market with a walkthrough evaluation of the current condition of their home.

We helped them identify the areas of their home that would benefit most from remodeling & updating and offer them the most return on their investment. The kitchen was mostly original so we showed them examples of how painting cabinets & walls as well as new floors & lighting would increase their final sales price. We also researched the cost of these improvements and connected them to local contractors to get the work done quickly.

Cosmetic changes like these (no structural changes needed) are more affordable than most clients realize and offer a huge improvement in that important first impression. We think you’ll agree that this kitchen’s before & after is stunning!

Our process for sellers includes:

  • Pre & post home valuation, how much will remodeling increase your home’s value
  • Thorough home evaluation with remodeling suggestions (RVA – Remodeling Value Analysis)
  • Remodeling cost estimates, accurate costs with our RRStimate tool
  • Connection to local contractors to complete the work
  • Total marketing campaign to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar
