Our Process for Your Success

1 - Consultation

We begin by connecting with you - ideally in person, and at your property. We consult with you about your needs: Why you are moving; when you are aiming to close on the sale; what you are looking for in a real estate agent and company. We listen to you and learn about your situation and your expectations.

2 - Pricing

Together we will review the valuation analysis of your property. As a top broker, I have a deep knowledge of the market, as well as a clear understanding of current market conditions. Having listed and sold hundreds of homes in Cambridge and Somerville, I am also able to call upon my wealth of experience to help with pricing for your home sale success.

3 - Home Prep Guidance

We will help orchestrate any prep work that your property requires prior to coming on the market. Typically, this might include any or all of the following: painting; home repairs; window cleaning; house cleaning; professional staging.
The scope of work is different for each property, as is each seller's budget. We will guide and assist you in creating a prep work plan, so that you can hire experienced professionals to complete the work you decide to do.

Compass Concierge allows Compass to completely fund the cosmetic improvements that will increase the value of your home — staging, repairs, cleaning, landscaping and more. Compass Concierge covers the upfront costs and when your home sells, Compass Concierge will collect the amount that covers the cost of the work performed.

4 - Comprehensive Marketing

Compass is also running digital media campaigns on a regular basis.

Personal Touch

We are fully engaged in the sales process on your behalf, hosting showings and open houses by appointment. We connect with interested parties and their agents and present your property in a personable and professional manner.

5 - Negotiation Advice and Counsel

We will field all offers; review them with you as our client, and advise you on how to negotiate the best terms. As a top agent with 20+ years of experience, I have consistently helped seller clients achieve outstanding results.

6 - Transaction Management & Communication

We advise you regarding all aspects of the sale of your home. We also manage the deal through the transactional process: from listing to offer to signed purchase & sale - and all the way to the closing. Every step of the way, you can count on us to solve problems and get the job done. And throughout the whole process, we are in regular communication, constantly updating you on what is happening. The end result is your success in selling for the best price!
