-- Paul & Donna reached out to Compass Home Group via the internet. They found an offer from out team to provide a Property Value Analysis for free and reached out to the team for that report. Compass Home Group happily provided the information yet also felt that with the features of their home, a tour was necessary. Paul & Donna were out of state so the conversation was tabled until they were ready to move. Compass Home Group stayed in contact with them, checking in from time to time, to see if they were ready for a visit. Finally, after outlining their calendars for a trip back to Maryland, they agreed!!
Michele visited the home and knew that it was a gem! Paul & Donna had maintained the all brick rancher style home so well, any buyer would be lucky to call it home. Focusing on the positioning of the home on the market to get them sold quickly, we knew we had to be strategic - what it would sell for versus what it would appraise for were two different things. Compass Home Group were determine to ensure Paul & Donna received the most money in the least amount of time getting that back to South Carolina, their new home state. Our goal was to educate Paul & Donna with the marketing approach as well as the processing approach in order to bulletproof their moving plans. The home was/is gorgeous and after touring, Michele knew that the atmosphere alone was worth more than money! You just can’t put a price on the togetherness of family and the opportunities to be together this home did provide.
The house listed and SOLD for more than FULL price in less than a week. The CHG team and the sellers worked through negotiations, inspections, and the processing to reach a very successful settlement. Paul & Donna were awesome clients and they will be dearly missed.
Paul & Donna's Perspective "We chose Compass Home Group because Michele liked our home. We did not get any “what you need to do!” outline from her. She was willing to work with our financial goal and was enthusiastic about listing. We would absolutely recommend the Compass Home Group. In fact, we already have. We feel Michele & Tim will enthusiastically promote the property and work to get the best offer. With two offers for more than list, we felt it was outstanding in just 4 days. We wish we could have changed the bank’s perspective. We felt the bank (or the process there) undercut us…not the buyer or our real estate agent."
