Why My Listings Sell for 20% Over Asking
Because my team knows marketing makes a difference.
When it comes to selling, my commitment to you is to get you the highest possible price, which we achieve through marketing and negotiation. I’m a fearless and effective negotiator, and to ensure marketing your home is equally unparalleled, I hired a marketing director. She’s my personal arsenal for bringing the story of your home to life.
She’s a smartie pants. Analise Smith-Hinkley is a UC Berkeley alumna with a decade of marketing experience, and a foundation in copywriting and communications. She brings a higher level of marketing psychology and creative strategy to my team. Together we customize and execute carefully targeted plans for marketing your home, driven by aspiration and grounded in analytics.
From the moment we look at your home, we’re strategizing (along with you) about the language we want to use, the way we’ll design the interior, our approach to photography—and how all of that together supports the specific story we tell to the people who want to hear it.
We don’t make buyers want to win, we make sure they can’t bear to lose. And it pays—every time.
And Compass Concierge shows your best side.
We are the first to offer a concierge service for renovating your home prior to sale. Does your kitchen or bathroom need a little love? How about landscaping your yard or painting the house? To unlock the full potential, my team and I start working: from fresh paint to revamped floors, new lighting to full counter remodels, to cultivating green space. We have one chance to showcase your home’s best features for an unparalleled premiere. This market moves fast, and first impressions are everything. So we move faster.
Compass Concierge fronts the entire cost with no interest with that cost repaid at the closing of the property sale. You don’t lift a finger managing or budgeting for house prep. We fully project manage all preparations, so you don’t worry about the logistics or the cost. This means less of a headache for you (all my preferred vendors are Concierge-compatible), and more time for us to focus on getting you the sale price you want.
Marketing customized to you + tailored renovations of your home is why my listings sell for 20% over asking.
Over $20 million sold in 2019 so far, THANK YOU!
