We know this is a tough one, but it’s important.
We use a scheduling program called ShowingTime. We will set it to a required notice period; we recommend that period to be one hour. The buyer’s agent requests the appointment online, then the program sends a text to you with the agent’s name and contact information. You approve or deny the showing by answering Y or N. If you do not see this message 30 minutes prior to the showing, it gets escalated to your broker.
We recommend maintaining a 70-degree atmosphere and leaving most of the lights on. You may see a larger bill during this time.
Each time the MLS key box is accessed we will get an alert. We will contact the showing agent for feedback, but please note that often we are unable to get a response from the broker. We will inform you when feedback is received.
You can anticipate a call from us on Mondays and Fridays to review all activity. Please know that you are welcome to reach out to us at any time.

"This team was worth every penny. They gave us a short list of very minor, time-saving, and inexpensive improvements, such as painting three small walls a more neutral color, that would pay off big (they did). They coordinate with companies who do top-notch work without overcharging. Whenever I had trouble finding someone (e.g., a furnace inspection) to get out there in time for our list date, their Listing Coordinator found someone who could. Response times were immediate. The staging was amazing. We looked at comparable homes on Zillow compulsively and kept remarking on how the other homes' staging was inferior to ours. It made all the difference, too. Our broker knows the market and the target buyer and priced the house accordingly--we would have been more than happy with the list price, but we made tens of thousands of dollars more. We are so grateful that they made the process virtually painless. We felt like we were in good hands the whole time, and we were. We'll definitely recommend Design Realty to anyone who's looking."
"This three person team was a godsend during our house sale. Don't think we could have gotten through it without them! Efficient, responsive and highly effective, and always available. Very easy to work with - they saved me countless hours and did all the grunt work for me! And, got we a great price for our house. I would heartily recommend them to anyone thinking about selling/buying a home. Simply fantastic company!"
