What’s new at Compass
As a real estate professional, I pride myself on being aligned with the interests of my clients. As such, I’m honored to be a part of a company that is designing its business model to adapt to consumer needs, changes, and objectives. Compass knows every client transaction is different, which is why the company recently announced four new initiatives designed to directly impact each and every client:
- Concierge Service
- Bridge Loans
- Vendor Services Marketplace
- Compass Cares
Here are detailed explanations of each program:
Investing in physical improvements to a home can increase its sale price dramatically, but coordinating those efforts takes time. Time some of you, I know, don’t have the luxury to spare. With Compass Concierge, I can create a tailored plan of services and upgrades that will increase the value of your property – staging, repairing, cleaning, landscaping. You name it! When your home sells, which will probably be very quickly, you’ll simply add the amount invested into the improvements to the commission.
“What we’re building collectively at Compass isn’t just a business; it’s a movement, borne from a common belief that we can elevate this industry together.”
-Rob Lehman, CGO
How many more people would sell their home if they knew they had a new one – and the necessary capital to buy it – waiting? Compass’ Bridge Loan Program will allow you to confidently buy your future home while waiting to sell your current one. The best part? Not only do well-staged, empty homes sell for more, but your family will be spared the inconvenience of having to show the listing while you’re still living in it.
“The idea: a marketplace where agents can connect to best-in-class vendors, curated by other Compass agents; a source they can trust and recommend to clients. In 2019, we are going to build that marketplace.”
-Maëlle Gavet, COO
Vendor Services Marketplace
When I take on a new client, I’m proud to also become their local lifeline for all things home, including – architects, interior designs, contractors, gardeners, cleaners, lawyers, accountants. But I’ m dedicated to providing my clients with unparalleled service and top-notch professionals, which is why I only recommend vendors I know and trust. With the Compass Vendor Service Marketplace, an agent-to-agent referral network, I’ll be able to provide you with a range of reputable vendors that I know have been vetted by a discerning audience.
“Inspiration is the fuel behind everything good in my life. And I feel an obligation to give it back.”
-Robert Reffkin, CEO
Compass Cares is our new, locally-directed community philanthropic program. One hundred percent of our transactions will result in a donation from Compass to a local, well-deserving organization. As agents, we’ll take on the responsibility of researching, nominating, and voting for the community organizations that will receive the funds. Just how generous do we plan on being, you ask? Over the next decade, we are challenging ourselves to work together to give back $1 billion to the community!
As the global community continues to evolve, so does my role as a representative of Compass. I’m confident that providing these ongoing, useful initiatives will establish the same long-lasting relationship with my future clients that I have with my current and past ones. If you have any questions about the programs highlighted above, or are curious about how to make them applicable to your circumstances, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
