Selling a Home on Chicago's North Shore | The Oertel Group

Thinking about selling a home on Chicago's North Shore but interested in selling it faster, and hassle-free?

The Oertel Group is about to introduce you to a program for sellers that decreases the amount of time your property is on the market, while potentially increasing your property value up to 20%!

Sounds like a seller's dream right? Especially in an area like Chicago’s North Shore that is a thriving market all its own!

It’s a program that the Oertel Group offers exclusively to its clients called Compass Concierge. Compass Concierge helps you sell your home faster and at a higher rate, by covering the cost of services to prepare your home for the market. Services covered in the program include staging to home improvements and more! By now you might be wondering how much it would cost to use Compass Concierge to benefit your next listing but you're worried about the price tag. There are no hidden fees or interest charged, ever!

John Oertel grew up with an appreciation for carpentry and construction. John’s dad was a carpenter and he was surrounded by a family full of skilled tradesmen. This allowed him to develop an impeccable eye for detail, and a high level of workmanship. However, John’s true calling was in his ability to easily speak and relate to people, hospitality, and his affinity for sales. So making the segue into Real Estate was the perfect career path for him.

Nicole Oertel has a love for design and the eye to match. She enjoys following along with the latest trends for homes while working to find local vendors, such as Calia Stone Boutique to work side by side with. Nicole’s affinity is in selecting finishes! From cabinets to countertops, faucets, and lighting, Nicole is your go-to girl for a flawless finish on your home!

When Compass introduced the Concierge program to John and Nicole, they immediately noticed the potential in using the program to help their clients and potential sellers!

It takes a high level of work and effort to put the most value on your property while enjoying the process it takes to get there. It’s not a process that every seller's agent is prepared for and it’s not a concept that is easily grasped by most. But it can be, through Compass Concierge!

John and Nicole’s experience brings to the table their ability to take Compass Concierge under their wing for their clients. They are involved in every aspect of the process from start to finish. While Compass Concierge is a bonus to their clients, they also take the extra steps to make the experience one of enjoyable ease. They are involved in sourcing contractors, painters, and vendors. They guide you each and every step of the way all while staying within the parameters of your budget. And you only pay for the services used under Compass Concierge after your sale closes! Once all of the necessary improvements have been determined, Compass will cover all upfront costs and later collect payment for the services rendered at the time of the closing!
