Caroline dinsmore top real estate expert

1. Innovative resources

The heart of what I do is help you find a place in the world. So I’m happy to offer the Compass Concierge Home Improvement Service and the innovative Compass Bridge Loan Service to help you achieve your home goals. 

2. Local expertise

I guide my buyers to the right neighborhood that best meets their needs and advocate for them so that they get their offers accepted with the best possible price and terms. Conversely, I use my carefully honed negotiation skills to get my sellers the highest possible price with the best possible terms.

3. Advocacy and Education

I’m relentless in my pursuit of the best deal for you, as a buyer or a seller. I will always ensure that your interests and investment are protected. That may even mean telling you when to walk away from an overvalued property or to wait to sell your home to get the best ROI.

4. Powerful network

I use my powerful local and national network to bring qualified buyers to my seller’s homes, well before any open house. And I have access to listings before they’re available to the general public, giving my buyers a clear advantage.

5. Supportive partnership

Buying or selling a home can be an emotional experience — a home represents your biggest investment and your future. I’m there to ensure that your stress is reduced, you’re well-informed, and you feel fully supported throughout the process.
