Real Estate in the News
Compass Concierge is the hassle-free way to sell your home faster and for a higher price with services like staging, flooring, painting and more.
How It Works
1. You and I will work together to decide which services can increase your home’s value the most and set an estimated budget for the work.
2. When you’re ready to start, I will be by your side as you engage vendors and commission work.
3. Once the transformation is complete, your home will go on the market.
4. You’ll pay for the services when one of the following happens — your home sells, you terminate your listing agreement with Compass, or 12 months pass from your Concierge start date.
Get ahead of the new year by reading more about the Compass Concierge program here or contact me directly.
