Three Tools to Help You Find Your Home Sweet Home

Compass is building the first modern real estate platform...


In a changing industry, it’s thrilling to be a part of Compass⁠—a fabulous, innovative, growing community of top agents and business leaders. Compass has supported me and my business growth since the first day I joined and that has never changed, even as our footprint has grown exponentially in San Francisco over the past year.

​​​​​​​Compass is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing the industry’s top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless. Below are three cutting-edge services and tools built by the brightest minds across engineering, design, and strategy to help you navigate San Francisco’s competitive real estate market.

Compass Concierge

What if you could sell your home faster, at a higher price, without spending upfront on home improvements? The Compass Concierge program is the latest in a suite of services designed to prepare your home for the market. From deep-cleaning to cosmetic improvements to staging, we will work together to assess opportunities to elevate your home's value.

Compass Concierge will assist you with the execution of a tailored plan for updating and staging your home for prospective buyers. We will cover the upfront costs associated with home-selling improvements and collect a fee for the services rendered at the time of the property’s closing. House preparation services include staging, painting, deep cleaning, landscaping, and decluttering.

How It Works:

 

  • Our team will develop a tailored project plan with suggested home improvements and updates to prepare your home for the market.
  • You will contract directly with home improvement service providers.
  • Compass Concierge will pay the associated cost for home improvement work performed subject to your agreements with home service providers.
  • At the closing of the property, Compass Concierge will collect a fee that covers the cost of the work performed.

Compass Collections

With so many listings out there and so many different ways to communicate, it’s not easy to stay on the same page. That’s why Compass created Collections, a visual online workspace for us to organize the homes you want to see, get instant updates from each other, and make decisions together.

​​​​​​​With a Collection, you can easily access your saved homes at any time, fully customize your search experience, and access school district and transit information. It’s a brilliant tool exclusive to Compass. All of my buyer clients work with me using Collections. I routinely receive feedback that the tool is a pleasure to use, intuitive, helps them learn the market, and gives them another easy way to communicate with me during the search.
​​​​​​​
Here’s what you can do with Compass Collections:

Organize: Keep track of the homes you like and save them in one place.

Collaborate: Invite your spouse, parents, or friends to join your search.

Discuss: Share comments about the homes with me as your agent so all communication is centralized.

Monitor: Receive automated price and status updates about the homes in real time, and always keep track of the next scheduled open house.

Compass Coming Soon

A Coming Soon listing is a home that is not yet officially on the market but is initially displayed exclusively on Compass prior to going live on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Pre-marketing a listing is a powerful way to build up interest and demand, gain more exposure and gather valuable feedback. A Coming Soon will create excitement and anticipation for a property so when it officially comes to the market, you can expect multiple private showings and open house turnout.

During the Coming Soon period, sellers and their agents can gain valuable feedback from the market on elements like pricing, photos and positioning of the property. When it’s time to go live, your listing will be perfectly priced and positioned to sell quickly.
