I had a delightful lunch in Palm Beach with Ari Afshar, my great friend and top broker from L.A. and Patrick Lafferty, who is now at Compass Palm Beach. We talked of all the high tech “invasion” of our real estate and whether it is “good or bad.” When Patrick told us the story of a young and newly licensed broker in Palm Beach, I decided that our personal relationships, genuine caring and interest in our clients is worth far more than more tech.


The new broker was invited by one of his old friends to join him for lunch at his Nana’s home. It turned out to be one of the estates on the ocean just south of the famous Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. A huge rainstorm blew in and water came pouring through the ceiling above their lunch table. Grandma declared that it must be time to sell, because it was just getting too difficult to maintain such a large home at her late age (in her 90’s).This lunch guest was so concerned he asked if there was any way he could help and she invited him back a few more times to just get to know him. He continued to check on her with genuine concern. She asked him to be her broker and he knew there was no way he could do this alone. So with the help of his office manager, they surrounded him 

with a team of 4 experienced brokers from his new office, and they sold it to the neighbor for $110,000,000-REALLY. 

 My point is this: the reason many of us are in this business, especially at COMPASS, is because we really are interested in your story and how we can help you. I believe in honest and caring relationships, so that I can find you the best property for the best price OR help you sell quickly and for the most money. 

I really rely on my Compass top brokers around the country so you get the same service from me no matter where you live!

The Aspen Real Estate Market continues to be strong and is ahead of 2018. All stock market indicators hit the highest numbers in history. It is time to convert some of your winnings to Aspen real estate! My girlfriend at lunch today in Palm Beach told me she converted some of her gains in the stock market and bought herself a brand new Rolls-Royce for several hundred thousands dollars.  Buyers know there are still reasonable deals if you buy a property that needs updating and is at least a mile from the center of town. And, sellers are figuring out that if you want top dollar, the property must be newly updated and even staged. 

 Please let us help you on either side of that coin and that is where COMPASS CONCIERGE is invaluable. As your broker, we establish a team of local experts to get your home ready for market. Compass does not charge any interest, pays for this update and even yard work or a deep clean. When you sell FASTER AND FOR 

A HIGHER DOLLAR AMOUNT, Compass deducts the expense at closing-again with no interest!!
