My top 3 suggestions are:

  1. Pick me
  2. Choose Susan Emo
  3. Emo's Expertise wins the day!

PS - the other suggestions with regard to pricing, staging etc are not something I'd ever discuss prior to having the listing agreement signed!  Certainly not the time to discuss during a listing presentation.

Barbara Todaro said it very well.  If I could add a 4th, I'd say get a home inspection BEFORE putting it on the market.  This saves a lot of trouble and delay during a pending transaction.

Don't be "afraid" to show your experience, it is not bragging you need to convey that experience to the potential client.
Show them referrals and past work, they might know all your sucesses of the past.

Winston - Of course price is important, so I would have a long talk about that if needed. Secondly, I would discuss all the ways to de-clutter and mention things to fix in order for the home to sell faster. Lastly, I would discuss how important it is to have it always accessible to show.

I tell sellers you have to allow buyers into your house but I do not want to stress them any more than is necessary. I suggest they do not change anything in their lives but the house must be seen. I am not big on stagging unless the house is really special and vacant so I stress concerns the seller has about showings, like lock box and who will be showing the house
