More than one seller noted they "could not recommend her more highly."
 

Buyers also praise Stephanie MacDonald for her patience, ability to show multiple properties, her skill in making deals that benefit both the buyer and seller, her professionalism, and wealth of experience in the real estate market for homes for sale in Bryn Mawr and other areas on the Main Line, in Center City, and Southern New Jersey.

Compass Concierge

As part of Compass, Stephanie MacDonald proudly offers Compass Concierge to her clients who have homes for sale in Bryn Mawr. But what is Compass Concierge? It’s a way for you to fund all the home improvements necessary to earn top dollar. You’re given the funds required for home improvements with no interest, which will be reimbursed after your successful sale. So, how does this process work?

First, you meet with Stephanie to discuss which upgrades can offer you the highest return on your investment when you list your property. Available upgrades include a deep cleaning of carpets, professional staging, decluttering and organization, repairs and cosmetic upgrades (new paint, shiny hardware, etc.), professional landscaping, upgraded HVAC, roof repair, electrical and plumbing fixes, upgrades to kitchen and bathrooms, and more.

During your discussion with Stephanie or a member of her team, be sure to bring up any known concerns with the property so they can be addressed. What are your current pain points? Does the water take too long to heat? Is it difficult to reach one of the fire alarms? Anything that you find a minor (or major) annoyance is open for improvement.

Popular upgrades to homes for sale in Bryn Mawr and other properties for sale include hardwood floors and professional staging. Sellers see a high return on investment when replacing carpet or laminate with hardwood floors. Studies show over half of homebuyers are willing to offer a higher purchase price for hardwood. As for professional staging, it is possible to earn $400 for every $100 spent on staging, which is a solid return on investment. Furthermore, over 50% of agents representing sellers have seen staging decrease the time a property remains listed.

After deciding on what upgrades you want to pursue, Stephanie MacDonald and her team will work with you to contact recommended contractors in your area. As soon as the upgrades are complete, Stephanie will list the property. Remember, you don't pay a single cent until your home sells, you end your listing agreement, or your home has remained on the market for 12 months from the start date of your Concierge service.

Sales portfolio

Stephanie MacDonald and her team have a solid history of successful sales. The majority of her recent sales history includes homes for $1 million or more, with several closings at well over $2 million. Looking specifically at successful homes sales in Bryn Mawr, Stephanie MacDonald and her team sold a property on Harriton Road in 2021 for $2,345,000. Her most recent sale on Lafayette Road in Gladwyne, PA, closed at nearly $3 million.

If you're in the market for a new home or plan to sell your current one, Stephanie MacDonald and her team are your best bet. With years of experience and an impressive sales portfolio, Stephanie knows what it takes to help buyers find the perfect property.
