Michele and Mara were a dream team during the entire process of my condo sale. From start to finish, they both served as advisors, friends, general contractors, problem solvers, and most importantly, decent and trustworthy professionals. In the beginning, when Michele recommended that I consider a higher-end (but economical) renovation, everything I read online and everything other people said steered me away from this. But Michele had a very good sense of what buyers expected in that part of Santa Monica. She and Mara also walked me through the process of finding a good and honest contractor, as well as a top-notch interior designer. Partnering two disparate contractors was a huge challenge, but Michele and Mara took it head on and bore the brunt of all of the materials discussions, trade-offs, and in-person meetings that have to happen in order to convert a makeover into a success. As we approached project completion, Michele and Mara helped me understand the selling strategy when we were just about to hit the Christmas Holidays. They commissioned the photo sessions, worked with the designer on staging, managed the inspection visits, and helped me navigate through the guts-ball final buyer negotiations. In the very first week of the listing, I had 4 offers in hand, including a backup that was even higher than the primary bid. The price I got for my place was more than $50K over asking, and it was 25% higher than what I had ever thought I’d get before the renovation. I can’t say enough about the extreme talent, professionalism, and positivity from these two – I know there is no way I would have ever sold my condo at anywhere close to this price without their leadership. Thank you.
