      Staging

      When prospective buyers evaluate a home, they seek a space that they can make their own. A few simple shifts can dramatically impact your listing’s perceived appeal.

      Photography

      Proponents of powerful imagery, Compass invests in visuals editors, creative producers, and the industry’s most respected photographers to capture your home’s finest selling points.

      Pique interest during our “Coming Soon” phase, which affords prospective buyers a glimpse of your home before it officially comes on the market.

      Don't Just Take Our Word For It.

      Ican honestly say: Chris sets the standard for RE agents. He’s highly knowledgeable, patient, respectful and responsible, always quick to respond to calls and emails. Though young in years, he’s a “classic professional” in every way. I’ve dealt with many good RE agents in my life, but when it comes to “the total package,” Chris takes the prize. He truly is the RE agent who goes the extra mile. If you buy or sell a house through Chris, I guarantee that you too will welcome the opportunity to give him a glowing review and to highly recommend him to others”

      -Susan S
      Our family trust hired Chris to help us to sell my deceased mother’s property. Chris inspired confidence from the start and was exceptionally responsive to all communications. He listed our property at an aggressive price and helped us to acquire a selling price over 20K above the asking price with great negotiation skills and close communication with our family. We were greatly pleased with the service and excellent work ethic Chris displayed. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property”

      -Charles C
      Chris is the best real estate agent I know! He is personable, hardworking, organized and responsive and clearly knows the business. He helped me to sell my home quickly and for our asking price. He not only handled the complexities related to that sale, but when I had unexpected surgery and could not do some of the repairs needed to close the escrow, he rolled up his sleeves and helped with some of the repairs!! He also helped me to find a wonderful place to buy in Carlsbad, CA. His depth of knowledge will be saving me a ton in property taxes, as he made me aware of a CA proposition passed that will allow me to carry over the property tax basis of my old property to my new home!”
