What We Do and The Results

As home prices rise, buyers get more picky about what they will buy.

They want homes that are move-in ready and here's the great news - they are willing to pay for it!


If you've been looking at homes online, you've seen the differences between those homes that are dialed in, and those that are not.  Do you give any attention to the ugly homes? No - you can't swipe fast enough!  It's the same reaction in person too.

To sell your home for top dollar, it needs to look sparkling new, and ready for move-in!


As listing agents, we assess each home and determine what needs to be done. Some homes are easy - all they need are a deep cleaning and some staging and we're ready to hit the market! But some need a bit more. Some common improvements we do are:


New flooring

Cabinet tune-ups

New light fixtures

Upgrade to LED lights

Window cleaning

Hauling and junk removal


Exterior pressure wash

New HVAC system

A/V repair

Screen replacement

Deep cleaning


And more!


We are experts at preparing homes for sale!  And Compass Concierge can provide the funds - for free - to assist with the preparation.

Whether it's painting, flooring, staging, moving, packing, storage, deep cleaning, or additional needs, we will work with you to assess every opportunity 

to elevate your home's value and improve your selling experience.


Once the necessary improvements have been completed, Compass will pay all upfront costs, and get reimbursed when escrow closes.

We are committed to provide a quicker and more profitable sale for you! To learn more about Compass Concierge, click here.
