How we represent your property
As soon as you enlist us to exclusively represent your property to the market we'll start to put our marketing team to work. At Compass all our design and marketing assets are designed and produced in house which gives us an immediate hands-on approach to building your listing and executing an intelligent and dynamic marketing plan.
We'll arrange a professional photo shoot, have floor plans created and craft copy to tell the story of your home. We will design beautiful brochures and other print collateral to strategically showcase your property.
In an instant, your home is presented on a robust page on the Compass.com website as a Coming Soon listing so we can gather valuable feedback before going live with the property listing. When all our materials are ready, your listing is launched to the web and sent across to 100+ national and global partner sites, and to the country’s fastest-growing agent-to-agent network, all to reach the ideal luxury buyer.
At the forefront of modern marketing, Compass takes a multi-pronged approach to the digital promotion of your property. We engage brokers and buyers every day across various dynamic platforms. With a suite of promotional opportunities, your home will be spotlighted in a real-time, relatable, and quantifiable way.
Our SHB Team Instagram Page, along with our individual Instagram and Facebook pages drives buyers to our listings through consistent campaigns. We analyse the browsing characteristics of your potential buyer and then deploy paid digital listing campaigns, targeting users based on these characteristics.
We represent the Hamptons region in a nationwide network of elite agents and brokers to distribute your listing within the other regions that share similar buyers looking for a weekend or summer home or a compelling investment property. The Coast To Coast Network showcases our listings on a beautifully designed dedicated website.

5. Craft an offer to purchase
As we draft a Purchase Agreement, we will discuss protective contingencies, customary practices, and local regulations.
At this time, you will need to provide proof of funds for the down payment, a lender pre-approval, and earnest money of 3% of the purchase price.
(This deposit is not cashed; it is placed in escrow until your offer has been accepted by the seller)
6. Present the offer
I will present your offer to the seller and the seller’s agent.
My personal knowledge of your needs and qualifications will enable me to represent you in the best way possible.
At this time, the seller has three options: they can accept your offer, reject your offer, or make a counter offer.
7. Evaluate the seller’s response
We will review the seller’s response with you. By weighing your needs and those of the seller, we can determine our best response. My negotiating skills and knowledge will benefit you in reaching a final agreement.
8. Open the escrow
When the Purchase Agreement is accepted and signed by all parties, I will open escrow for you.
At this time, your earnest money will be deposited. The escrow or title company, acting as the neutral entity, will receive, hold and disburse all funds associated with your transaction.
9. Contingency periods
We will discuss contingency periods and how to utilize them to strengthen your offer. Dependent upon the current market, we may decide to review these before we submit your offer. Typical contingencies include:
10. Obtaining homeowner’s insurance
Your lender will require you to secure property insurance. You will need to provide proof of insurance to the Escrow Officer.
11. Down payment funds
You will need a cashier’s check or money transfer several days prior to the closing date of escrow. These funds are deposited into the escrow account.
12. Signing of documents
When all of the conditions of the Purchase Agreement have been met, we will meet at the Title office where you will sign your loan documents and closing papers.
You will deposit the balance of the purchase price. (This usually is scheduled a few days before the close of escrow).
13. Close of escrow, receiving the keys to your property
Once the payoff has been made to the seller’s loan, and your lender has received their funds, the Deed will be recorded at the County Recorder’s office, and you will take ownership of your home.
Our dynamic drive comes through in every transaction leaving no stone unturned and working tirelessly to negotiate the best possible deal for her clients.
