We’ve been selling homes in the Washington, DC area for 30 years, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that there’s always a lot to learn.
Whether you’re moving from your starter home to upsize, or selling your long time family home to downsize, we’re working with you every step of the way.
How We Do Things Differently
We always aim to make this tough process as easy as possible, allowing you to smoothly transition into the next stage of your life.
Our work has allowed us to sell over 1,500 homes through our local expertise in Alexandria and the D.C. area, dedicated team members, and unique marketing ideas. You can only enjoy these benefits when you work with an experienced team like us.
Here’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose to sell your home with our team:
Compass Coming Soon
Compass Coming Soon allows us to pre-market your home to thousands of potential buyers both in the DC area and across the country to other Compass agents. That way, when it comes onto the market, we already have a list of interested buyers to tour your home. The results of using the Compass Coming Soon strategy have been incredible. Since it allows us to confidentiality price your property and build early excitement, we have found that it’s the fastest way to secure the best possible offer. It’s also a great way to expose your property to potential buyers if you would prefer a private, off-market sale.
The Compass Concierge Program
Discover how you can maximize the value of your home with Compass Concierge, the hassle-free way to increase the value of your property. From painting to ﬂooring and everything in between, Compass Concierge helps you easily prepare your home for the market by advancing the funds (up to five percent of the list price) for home improvement services.
First, we’ll work together to determine which services can increase your home’s value the most and set an estimated budget for the work. From there, we’ll be by your side throughout the Concierge process so that you can make the most out of your sale.
After determining which services will bring the most value to your home, we will work with you to select the best vendors for the job. You’ll contract directly with vendors without paying out-of-pocket costs. Once your home sells, simply pay back the funds that the program provided – and nothing more.
From top listing agents to trusted professionals in the community, our specialized team is available seven days a week. Featuring decades of industry experience and community insight, you’ll always receive solid advice you can trust.
We’ve built relationships with other local real estate agents in the Alexandria and D.C. area to create an extensive network of industry professionals across the country. When we’re listing your home, we reach out to these agents to match your home with the ideal buyer.
Innovative Marketing Strategies
Once your house is looking its best, we use our unique real estate marketing ideas that are proven to get the job done. We envision the ideal buyer that would best suit the home, and target our marketing specifically to them.
Selling your home is about more than just listing and hoping. It requires constant communication and honesty. We continually provide you with feedback from potential buyers and agents, and give you weekly updates on the state of the market and an action plan to sell your home.
