“Due to relocation for work we made the decision to sell our home. We were full of uncertainty, including whether or not to use a realtor. We had a couple of off market offers which seemed tempting. Simpler and quicker maybe, and quite possibly resulting in a higher profit due to lower fees. After thinking it through for some time and interviewing a few realtors, we turned down the off market offers and took a “chance” and listed with Michelle and Sarah. We absolutely made the best choice. We could not have asked for better realtors than Sarah and Michelle. They are honest, down to earth and highly skilled. We have worked with a few other realtors in the past through the process of buying and selling other homes. None of them gave us the professionalism or results of Michelle and Sarah. They aren’t simply sales people like some realtors, they were the perfect mix of professional yet personable from beginning to end. They helped us price our home correctly in a complicated and often challenging market and then advised and helped in staging for a seamless weekend of scheduled showings and an open house. They take care of the details that matter in a low stress but thorough way. Most importantly to us, when we received an overwhelming 30 offers, they advised us and guided us through the process of negotiations and counter offers in order to secure the best price and terms for our sale. Not only did we receive more than 25% over our asking price, they negotiated an extended free rent back period for our family. We happily used this time to plan the details of our move and say goodbye to our home. We would absolutely seek their services again for any of our future real estate needs.” - Ryan & Francie Bankhead
“From start to finish, Sarah and Michelle consistently went above and beyond to make the sale of my home effortless. I so appreciated their professionalism and attention to detail while I was busy managing a cross country move. I highly recommend this team to anyone looking to buy or sell in this highly competitive market.” - Debbie Dawson
“The Compass A-Team, Michelle Williams and Sarah Slaughter are top-notch and deliver results with their unified real estate business approach! They did a phenomenal job in helping us sell our old home and simultaneously purchase our new one. We were super impressed with their professionalism, ultimate expertise, and ability to always be on point with their enthusiastic approach. They did a wonderful job showcasing our home through online photos and an interactive virtual tour experience. Their extreme knowledge of the market helped us to sell in less than a week with multiple offers and over asking price! They made the process seamless, balancing the sale and purchase of both our homes, making it extremely fluid and easy. They worked effectively as a team, answered all of our questions, addressed our concerns, and kept us informed every step of the way with calm collect. We are grateful, truly happy with our experience and outcome, and highly recommend this dynamic duo!” - Eric and Summer
“Sarah Slaughter and Michelle Williams make a stellar Real Estate team in North County San Diego! I recently worked with them to purchase a home and couldn't have been happier with their service and the experience overall. Buying a home in the intensely competitive 2021 market certainly wasn't easy, so that's saying a lot! To complicate matters, we were living in the Bay Area while house hunting, so we had to navigate the buying process remotely with their help leading the way from Encinitas. Sarah & Michelle went above and beyond to make the experience as convenient and easy for us as possible with that in mind.
For every house we expressed interest in, they made sure to get early access to the home and sent us detailed video walk-throughs of every room, all exterior features, and even the surrounding neighborhood. It felt like we were there with them. When we did fly down for a weekend to see particular homes in person, they made sure to pack in as many appointments as possible so that our time in town was maximized and pre-arranged. We didn't have to do a thing except follow these knowledgeable real estate tour guides around! Once we decided a particular home was worth bidding on, Sarah & Michelle used their combined years of transactional experience, and extensive best-practice knowledge, to make our bids as competitive as possible without tipping the scales too far that we felt uncomfortable in our offers. That was such a fine line to master in the intensely competitive environment, and they mastered it.
Sarah & Michelle really taught us how to trust gut instinct and navigate the murky waters of each home's pros and cons as they related to our wish list (and deal breaker list!). Ultimately, it wasn't an MLS or Zillow alert that matched us to our new home. It was Sarah & Michelle's network of agent relationships that allowed us to purchase our dream home off-market, something we never thought possible in the current market. The negotiation process was tough, and they represented our interests with the right amount of firmness needed while still keeping the sellers happy, since they could have been swayed at any point to jump ship and put the house on the market. We got it! We are now living in a home that checks every box and more, and we couldn't have done it without Sarah & Michelle's expert guidance. I would use them again and refer them to others without hesitation.” - Smith Family
“My husband and I are extremely grateful for Sarah and Michelle and the stellar team they are. In such a crazy market, we still can't believe our good luck. We sold our home in one weekend with 18 offers at $258,000 over asking and then turned around two months later and bought a fully remodeled home for under market value. But luck really had only a small part to play in it. Sarah and Michelle worked tirelessly to get us exactly what we had hoped for and more, providing excellent advice along the way. They are charismatic, professional, and have truly made this such an easy, stress-free experience. We are clients for life!” - Mason Family
