About Success Stories

One of the biggest decisions someone can make is choosing which real estate agent to sell their home. The majority of transactions always have a seller's agent and there’s a reason for that. Usually, it’s the largest asset someone has so maximizing the sale and ensuring the process is smooth is vital. What makes The Hay and Holt Team different is shown in our success stories. We’ve sold apartments when other brokers couldn’t, and the testimonials with the before and after photos demonstrate our success.
About Success Stories

200 E 94th St, Unit 904

Two other agents failed to sell two separate times | Our strategic digital marketing led to multiple offers - Sold

"In selling our condo we found Nicole Hay a step above other real estate agents in NYC. Nicole was always prompt and prepared. She listened and offered honest advice. The unique technology used by Nicole and her team to find the right buyers for our property was a plus. Her photos and description captured the unique quality of our home and her organized showings resulted in multiple offers from qualified buyers in just a few weeks. Nicole was able to negotiate an acceptable offer where two previous agents could not. Her level of service made the difference. In addition, Nicole went out of her way to connect us to Oz Moving Movers to ease our concerns of our moving back to West coast. We would definitely use Nicole again for future real estate opportunities.”

Client Review


Selling your home? Listing it early as a Coming Soon property on compass.com gives buyers and their agents a heads up that your home is about to hit the market. Drive interest with exclusive marketing and gain insights before officially launching.

What Can Compass Coming Soon Do for Your Listing?

Increase Exposure

Positioned on the Compass homepage and prioritized in search results, Compass Coming Soon listings are the first homes buyers see when they visit compass.com. Not only are these listings promoted site-wide, but they may be featured in both national and regional marketing campaigns at no extra cost to you.

Generate Buzz

Compass Coming Soon allows you to bring your home to market sooner with differentiated print, digital, and social media marketing materials designed to pique buyers' interest. When it's ready to go live on the broader market, you'll have the opportunity to launch your listing for the second time, attracting even more attention.

Deliver Market Insights

Take advantage of the pre-marketing period by previewing your home to a high-interest audience as a Compass Coming Soon. It's the perfect time to assess pricing and gather buyer feedback - in most places, without accumulating days on market.

How Does Compass Coming Soon Work?

  1. While your home is being prepped for market, your Compass agent will preview your property to buyers on compass.com
  2. Your agent will develop a Compass Coming Soon marketing campaign featuring social media, emails, print materials, and more to drive the most traffic possible to your listing
  3. Based on these efforts, your agent can identify the right audience for your listing and gain pricing insights
  4. Then, once your listing prep is complete, your agent will create an official launch on the broader market designed for a faster, more profitable sale
