Achieving Record-Breaking Results

Selling a home is a big task, but getting record-breaking results is a true achievement. Our loft-style townhouse at 64 Iron Horse Lane in Walnut Creek CA was listed in just 7 days and sold in only 9 days. Despite some unexpected challenges, our careful planning and quick action made this possible. The property’s soaring ceilings, elegant hardwood floors, and updated bathrooms quickly attracted buyers. Our dedicated teamwork ensured a smooth 20-day closing process.

Preparation: Key to Success

On April 1st, I met with the seller to tour the property. We discussed potential repairs, updates, and pricing strategy. The property was vacant and in good condition, so we moved quickly. I contacted my trusted stager, adjusted schedules, and had the property staged within two days. This quick action set us on the path to success in this Walnut Creek Home Sale.


Enhancing with Compass Concierge

Using Compass Concierge, we improved the property’s appeal without adding financial stress to the seller. This program can front up to $50,000 for pre-listing improvements. While the bathrooms were already updated, Compass Concierge covered pre-listing inspections and staging costs, easing the seller’s burden and boosting the property’s market value.


Creating an Attractive Narrative

64 Iron Horse Lane had unique features that needed to stand out. Located near the BART station and Iron Horse Trail, it had a modern charm similar to Brooklyn townhomes. With its two-bedroom layout and steps inside, we targeted younger buyers. We highlighted the new bathrooms, open kitchen/living space, and high ceilings to appeal to this audience.

Strategic Staging and Presentation

Staging was essential. We arranged furniture to show off the spacious, open living area. Every photo was carefully planned to grab attention online. I was there on photo day to make sure the photographer captured my vision. We had just 3-5 seconds to make a strong first impression.


Innovative Marketing

Our marketing included a professional website, www.64ironhorse.com, and a pre-market campaign to generate interest. These efforts helped us attract buyers quickly and secure a record-breaking sale.


Overcoming Challenges

We faced a major challenge with new HOA management, which delayed the lender’s questionnaire. Clear communication was key. We kept everyone informed, responded quickly, and found solutions. The buyer eventually switched to a lender familiar with the HOA, allowing the sale to proceed smoothly.


Seller's Praise: Efficient and Reliable

The seller, Yiming Hu, praised our team’s efficiency and dedication:


"Judy is the most efficient person I have ever worked with. We met on 4/1, and the house was on the market within a week. The listing was pending in another week. The process would not have been as smooth without her and her team's effort."
"During a minor incident at closing, the new HOA management failed to provide clear answers, causing funding issues and delays. Judy and her team worked non-stop to resolve the problems. It was a stressful time, and I feel very lucky to have such a responsible and reliable person working with me."
