Focusing on Your Property

Compass Coming Soon Pre-Marketing Your Home Clients are consistently looking for ways to sell their home as fast as possible for the highest price. One of the best ways to do is to get a head start marketing the home before it’s time to go to the MLS. Compass Coming Soon listings present the perfect opportunity to pre-market your property on behalf of your clients. Premarketing your listings is a powerful way to build up interest and demand, gain more exposure and gather valuable feedback. Build Up Interest and Demand Pre-marketing is a powerful strategy that can help sell your home faster. Many industries use this tactic; think of how Hollywood released movie trailers, or how Tesla get thousands of people to sign up for a car two years ahead of time, or how a fashion brand mindset of a startup and the sophistication of a luxury brand, Compass is the future of real estate.

Get More Exposure By creating a Compass Coming Soon listing, you create two opportunities to launch your exposure. The listing garnet visibility first when it appears on, and when it goes live on the MLS and aggregators. This strategy, one that many successful agents across the country take advantage of, is a great way to make sure your listings are being seen by the largest number of agents and consumers. The result is that you are able to potentially sell the home quicker and for more money.

Gain Valuable Feedback Coming Soon allows agents and consumers to see the property before it goes live on the wider marketing. During that promotional period, we are able to gain valuable feedback on pricing, photos, and positioning of the home. One of the features of Coming Soon is that it allows us to test the marketplace and learn from it, all without ever actually putting a property on the MLS and aggregators. When it’s time to go live, the listing will be perfectly priced and positioned to sell quickly. By moving fast and learning from reality, we can create accuracy, impact and more overall success through this strategy.

Celebrity Rental: David Charvet and Brooke Burke-Charvet So goes the proverb- “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again,” and that’s exactly what handsome and semi-retired French actor and singer David Charvet (Baywatch, Melrose Place) and his former Baywatch babe turned Dancing With the Stars hostess wife Brooke Burke-Charvet have done with Chateau Charvet, their gated, 3.2 acre estate in the guard-gated and celebrity-friendly Serra Retreat. In 2011 they unsuccessfully attempted to sell the five-parcel estate with its custom-constructed six bedroom and four bathroom mini-mansion with an asking price of $12.5 million. They then tried to lease the gated estate at a rate of $75,000 per month and now, according to digital marketing materials, they’ve drastically lowered their asking price to a still tumescent $50,000 per month. Some of the highlights of the 6,769 square foot house include a formal living and dining room, a wood-paneled study, a 4,000 bottle wine cellar, a “woman’s offseason closet,” and a hidden screening room. The gated and mostly manicured grounded include a motor court and courtyard with an 18th-century fountain and gas lamps, formal gardens, a 200-bush rose garden, a citrus orchard, a freshwater swimming pool and spa, and a stone-walled poolside.

A nationally-recognized mentor and leader in the industry, he has led numerous national and local agent-training programs, appeared on television, radio and in print to discuss trending real estate topics, and has managed several local real estate offices. Recently, he launched a free real estate app also called The Radcliffe Group—available on the App Store and Google Play—which enables users to have direct access to multiple listing services. These days, Radcliffe—who has lived everywhere from Miami to San Francisco—calls Malibu’s Serra Retreat neighborhood his home. He actually found Serra Retreat during a drive to Malibu one afternoon when he saw a sign for an open house that one of his colleagues was hosting. Radcliffe decided to stop in and say hello, and the rest is history. “The moment I drove into the neighborhood my jaw dropped,” he explained. “I thought I was in a fairy tale. And 72 hours later, we were in escrow. That was 20 years ago. I love the chill vibe and energy of living in Malibu, as well as the immense beauty. I’m truly blessed.” Now married with three boys, Radcliffe enjoys spending time with his family and surfing at Second and Third Point in Malibu. He and his wife, Tara, also love hanging out at Malibu Country Mart and watching their kids play at the park while enjoying lunch at John’s Garden or Tra di Noi. “My favorite thing to do, other than spending time with the family or


Robert Radcliffe’s knowledge and passion for real estate has made him a top Realtor in Malibu.

ack when Robert Radcliffe was a college student in San Luis Obispo, California, he was visiting Los Angeles one summer and was immediately impressed by the beautiful homes of his friends’ parents. Out of curiosity, he asked what they did for a living, and upon discovering they were involved in the real estate industry, a spark of inspiration changed the course of his entire life. “At the time, I was studying small business management, and I went back to my career counselor in the fall and asked if there was anything I could study that involved real estate,” Radcliffe said. “As soon as he mentioned that I could get a degree in real estate, that was it for me.” Fast-forward almost three decades, and he is now ranked in the top one percent worldwide as a top-producing real estate agent. Radcliffe, who is with Compass in Malibu, specializes in residential real estate sales in Brentwood, Malibu, Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica. He leads The Radcliffe Group, which has consistently been ranked by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top 250 sales teams in America. I love Malibu and the Westside of Los Angeles, yet have favored Malibu because of the people and all that Malibu has to offer,” he said.

After years of knowing you and having you represent me with six transactions, your real estate expertise has been an enormous asset. —Ving Rhames Being a builder and real estate investor, my familiarity with the brokerage community is extensive. My dealings with you over the years, your representation, professionalism, knowledge, and real estate experience has proven to me that you are one of the most qualified agents in the business. —Steve Meepos Thank you for your professionalism as our agent. Because of your guidance and quickness, we have bought our dream home. We truly appreciate your role in our family’s move and consider you a trusted advisor. Additionally, your thoroughness in marketing was able to get our previous home sold in the time frame needed to make our family’s move as painless as possible. —Robert and Wendy Landes Being a commercial real estate broker, I have a lot of ties with other agents. It was because of your intensity representing your seller for the home that we purchased that Karina and I decided we wanted you to be on our side when we had to sell our previous home. The decision proved to be the right one, because of your “cross-marketing” you found our buyer with an ultimate sales price $4K under our asking. We will highly recommend your services to our friends and family. —Blake and Karina Mirkin One year ago we requested your advice to decide whether we should remodel, or sell our previous home. Much to our satisfaction, your answer was honest. I still remember when you tried to convince me to remodel and not to sell. My comment was,‘You are talking yourself out of a job.’ Your reply,‘I know, but it is truly what I would do [remodel].’ Since that meeting, we have bought, sold and referred you to our family and friends, all resulting in amazing service from you. We are sincerely thankful for your representation. —John and Kimbre Eichler You’re amazing! Well, even though I said we were going to name our next child after you and didn’t (joking aside), Stacy and I want to thank you for getting us more money than we expected for both of our home sales. Your confidence throughout all three of our transactions was incredibly valuable and allowed us to feel secure with your guidance. —Stacy and Andrew Messina You have gained my confidence 100%. Thank you for being there through the sale & purchase, from beginning to end, you have made our move extremely smooth. —Steve and Kristin Dark




As you know, Dana and I were immediately impressed when we first met you. Your thorough knowledge of the inventory and your ability to articulate the value in the marketplace is what we gravitated to, followed by your savvy negotiation skills. Our experience working with you has been an absolute pleasure. Lastly, your true character was shown when my sister needed real estate advice, even though she was, unfortunately, working with another agent, you took the time to give her guidance and explain values when you were not going to be compensated. All of your services have been very much appreciated. —- Steven and Dana Goodman The way you and your team walked us through our transaction proved to us that we definitely chose the perfect real estate professional. As you recall, when we met you years ago you had left a positive impression with us. It wasn’t until years later that we called you and had the pleasure to know why we remembered you so positively. Thank you so much for helping us and our dream home and we look forward to work with you in getting our existing home sold. —Chris Moore and Jenno Topping When I bought my home 5 years ago Rob represented the seller. I was impressed by his handling of the transaction from the other side of the table. When it came time to sell my home he was on the short list. After meeting to discuss his views on the market, the property and the pricing strategy I was convinced that he and his team were the right ones to sell my home. I was right. From the marketing strategy to the responsiveness, to working with third parties throughout the marketing and closing, they were perfect. I live on the other side of the country so that meant I needed trust, responsiveness, and clarity around all decisions we were making as a team. I never had a doubt that the info I was getting was spot on. We landed exactly where we thought we would and I credit that to Rob’s years of expertise in the area and his teams' diligence to make everything happen smoothly. Well done all around. —Greg Consiglio Rob, as the managing partner of a 25-lawyer litigation rm specializing in real estate matters, among other areas of practice, I am quite experienced with the intricacies in a real estate transaction. I want to share with you that Ilysia and I are incredibly grateful and impressed with you and your staff. Not only were you able to adeptly handle some difficult situations that arose with both the purchase and sale of our home in a truly professional manner, but you were also able to generate a sale for our home higher in price than most of the agents believed was warranted. Your experience and guidance throughout this process are very much appreciated and respected. —David Pierce Thank you for your patience and professionalism in representing us on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. You and your team were highly effective in making both transactions as easy as possible. Your knowledge of real estate is why we have chosen you above and beyond any other realtor. As we have in the past will continue to refer you to our friends. —Pam and Steve Beeks

Commissions Selling your home is a competition!

6% vs 5% Every smart business person understands that when selling any commodity, you need to create an advantage to outshine the competition. One of the strategic marketing techniques we use to create this advantage with the buyer’s agent is by offering a full compensation rate of 6% versus the average to lower than average commission rate of 5%. The 1% difference easily created the enthusiasm we want from every buyer’s agent; to introduce your home more passionately to their clients than all the rest of home in your price range. It is simple Business 101 Marketing. Enroll the sales force to be excited to sell your home versus the competition and with creating more excitement for your home, from our largest allies, the other agents, resulting in a higher sales and net price to you. Which is the ultimate goal. The commission rate is your choice; whether you choose 5% or 6%, I assure you my team and I will sell your home. Finally, this marketing technique is also used as another advantage during negotiations. Very important for us to discuss.

Robert Radcliffe Guarantee The biggest fear some homeowners may have is that the agent will not be doing what they are supposed to be doing. Most agents will lock you into a six month or one year contract for selling your home. When you think about it, why should a contract be needed anyway? If you don’t really want to sell, you can simply turn down all the offers that are presented to you. I am a trusting person, and I want to work with trusting homeowners. I know that I have to earn your trust and I will start by showing you that I trust you. I am confident that I can show you that I can earn my commission by doing everything in my power to sell you home for the maximum dollar. I want you to be in control and confident that I will be providing you with a level of service that is so exceptional that I can offer this type of agreement. When you list your home with me, you may at your discretion withdraw the listing from the MLS at any time, for any reason.*

This not does not void the terms stated in the contract for parties introduced to your home or any full price offers
