Sherwood Score! $75k under original list price

By Sophia Rosenberg, September 17, 2019

The market has been softening, homes have been sitting and prices have been dropping. But, some are still nervous to write under ask (the list price). This Sherwood cottage is a lesson in always writing! If the Seller is eager, they will often counter. Especially in this market.

My clients loved this Sherwood cottage. It had been renovated after a recent fire and the finishes were STUNNING. Especially for a star baker (like my client!).

So what started out as a $530,000 house, ended up theirs for $455,000. $75,000 under the original list price! All because of great communication between both agents and a willingness to negotiate.

See below for some photos of this beauty and learn more about me (Sophia) here!

Home, hospitality and community have long been signposts to Sophia’s heart, and they also happen to represent key stages of her life so far. As a young, up-and-coming designer, she put an interior architecture degree from the University of California to work managing the design and styling of new openings for the popular Kimpton Hotels brand. After completing Babson’s renowned entrepreneurial MBA program, Sophia began creating the marketing and branding plans for a host of new luxury hotels — including Joie de Vivre’s beloved boutique hotels — as director of branding for a hospitality group founded by the Hyatt scion John Pritzker. But amid all the travel and excitement, she began to feel a desire to be closer to “a community I’m proud to call home while helping families find their perfect place.” Her first home was a 1938 English cottage that she successfully renovated, decorated and sold. And as she turned from creating homes away from home, to home sweet home, it turns out that real estate brings it all together for her: Nimble management skills. A passion for design. Love of community. An accredited Earth Advantage Real Estate Broker and ADU Specialist, she offers clients an abundance of green home expertise with hands-on experience creating backyard cottages (check out her charming loft on AirBnB). Among clients and colleagues alike, she’s known as much for her tenacity and enthusiasm for negotiating and navigating multiple offers as she is for nurturing and maintaining relationships long after her deals are closed.
When she’s not helping her clients, you’ll find her renovating her 1911 Four Square, shopping vintage and spending time outdoors with Maya, Archie and Danny — her young daughter, son and sneaker obsessed husband.
