COMPASS CONCIERGE PROGRAM
Compass Concierge before and after .png

Earlier in the season, I listed a condo in South Boulder while it was still tenant occupied. There was no surprise that it did not show well or receive good feedback from the buyers. Once the tenant moved out, I presented the Compass Concierge program to the seller, and she decided to take advantage of some of its services, such as cleaning, fresh painting, staging, repairs and updates. In just under three weeks, the condo looked like new, and we have since received amazing feedback after showings. Compass Concierge not only enhances the listings, it also helps sellers by deferring the costs - and with no interest - to have their home ready for showings.

Once the necessary improvements have been determined, Compass will cover all upfront costs, collecting payment for the services rendered at the time of the property's closing

The Compass Concierge program has completed more than 1,000 projects nationwide since the program's launch one year ago. Compass Concierge covers all upfront costs for staging and cosmetic improvements. The cost of the improvements is then collected after the sale closes, and no interest is paid to Compass for setting up service with the vendors.

Some examples of Compass Concierge services include:

  • Cosmetic renovations

  • Decluttering

  • Landscaping

  • Interior + Exterior Painting

  • Staging

  • Custom Closet Work

  • Moving + Storage

  • Roofing Repair

  • Electrical Work

  • Plumbing Repair

  • and More!

Month of Modern House Tour Experience

Featuring Homes by Extraordinary Architect Tician Papachristou 

 
 

As a proud sponsor of Boulder's Month of Modern events, I'm thrilled to share the following details about our upcoming House Tour Experience, featuring homes by the extraordinary architect Tician Papachristou. 

***
In partnership with Historic Boulder and CU Boulder’s AIAS chapter, join Month of Modern for a one-of-a-kind House Tour experience in Boulder. See an awe-inspiring group of five select Papachristou houses that reflect the rich diversity of livable, innovative architecture and design found throughout his buildings.

Tician Papachristou (1928-2018) came to Boulder by Greyhound bus in 1954 after graduating from Princeton University. Like many of Boulder’s mid-century modern architects, he worked for James Hunter. Papachristou moved on to form his own practice which included brief associations with Charles Haertling and Daniel Havekost. He also taught design at the University of Colorado.

His body of work in Boulder, which includes a local historic landmark and several designated Structures of Merit, was influenced by the vernacular architecture of his native Greece as well modernists including Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.

Papachristou worked with clients who were young and at the beginning of their careers and therefore on a limited budget. The natural materials used were chosen for their low cost and sustainability such as wood, cinder block, concrete and glass, and furthermore he believed it was socially responsible to keep expenses to a minimum.

Many of his homes feature details with repeating geometric patterns. Dramatic ceilings and striking custom fireplaces are hallmarks of his structures as are the seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Papachristou’s influence on Boulder includes his participation in the NCAR site selection team with Dr. Walter Orr Roberts and architect I.M Pei. With encouragement by Pei, Papachristou left Boulder to work for the Marcel Breuer architecture firm in New York City in 1965 and became a partner in the firm in 1974.

For one day only, attendees will be given the rare chance to walk through the interiors of some of the most inspiring private homes in Boulder’s neighborhoods. This self-guided tour features five distinct residences chosen to inspire design professionals and enthusiasts alike.


Tour Date/Time: September 21, 10am-4pm. 

Admission: Space is limited so purchase your tickets in advance.
One Ticket $50; Two Tickets $80; Proceeds from the tour directly benefit Historic Boulder and AIAS.

For Compass’s inaugural Compass Cares event in Boulder, Compass agents, clients, staff, friends, and family are invited to plant 5,000 trees in Sunshine Canyon with One Tree Planted for Earth Day on Saturday, April 20th from 9am – 3pm.

In 2010, the Four Mile Canyon Fire transformed Boulder’s landscape, destroying 6,200 acres of land and 165 homes. Nine years later, the scars of this fire can still be seen in Boulder’s backyard. Compass aims to be a contributor in the ongoing restoration efforts to serve the community and its members. 

If you would like to participate in the One Tree Planted event with Compass this Earth Day, please contact Tamori Tristani at tamori.tristani@compass.com
