A Couple Words from Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate Members

“Open up the floor plan to create more open space (remove walls) for a large open floor plan. Open living is hot right now and it’s a top selling point. Less walls the better.”

- Michael Chez, Rodeo Realty Fine Estates

Remodel“Today’s buyers seem to have more money than time to invest in their homes. In many families, both spouses work, or one spouse is busy raising the family and they want turn-key properties. For today’s buyers it’s all about lifestyle. People want places to gather with family and friends, beautiful outdoor living areas, great working chef’s kitchens and luxurious baths to relax in. Buyers value hardwood floors, closet systems and above all, improvements that speak to quality.”

- Jane R. Poppelreiter, Compass San Francisco

“Install an A/C system, as this isn’t common in Germany due to general weather conditions, but over the past five years it has become more sought after to have one. A garage upgrade as well, perhaps more parking space or a fast loading station for electronic cars.”

- Peter Rabitz, Koch & Friends Immobilien
