Allison Ziefert

After a dozen years in real estate I love my job more than ever. I am blessed to have a career that combines several of my passions– architecture and design, building community and helping people.

I am a founding agent of Compass NJ where I lead a top-producing team.

Before I became a realtor, I worked as a project manager for a large construction management firm, ran a downtown development organization and worked in local politics. I studied Art History at Barnard College and received a degree in Urban Planning and Historic Preservation from Columbia University. My educational background and work experience have given me a unique skill set that is an added value for my clients. I enjoy meeting and working with all kinds of people and I never get tired of looking at houses!

I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and have lived in Maplewood/South Orange since 1995. I have three children- two who are out on their own and one in high school. You’ll often see me out on long walks in my neighborhood with my dachshund, Archie. I also love fitness classes, cooking and antiquing.

Ask Allison Series Part 3: Sewer Scopes 🏡

This is a KEY part of the home inspection. A sewer scope is like a colonoscopy for your sewer line where a camera is run from inside the house all the way out to the end of the line where your sewer line would connect with the street.

Many sewer lines in our towns are older and made of clay, meaning they can potentially have cracks, breaks, or roots running through them. So, it is definitely something you want to have checked out, because if there is a serious problem, it can be expensive to repair (and you do NOT want a sewer backup in your basement).

Be sure to follow for more tips and answers to my most-asked questions from buyers and sellers! ✨

We are back with our "Ask Allison" Series! ✨ Today, we will be talking about radon gas.

A lot of people don't know what this is - it's a naturally occurring gas that is a biproduct of decaying uranium underground. This can be carcinogenic, it's colorless, and odorless, and it is something that most buyers will test for during the home inspection. 🔎

Be sure to us follow for more tips as we continue our "Ask Allison" series each week! 📱

Welcome to "Ask Allison" Series Part 1: Home Inspections ✨

We are starting a new series called "Ask Allison" where I will be answering the most-asked questions I get from buyers & sellers and the home buying and selling process!

Today, we are talking all things home inspections. One question I received from my seller was "Who actually attends home inspections?" Typically in our market, the buyers would be present with their agent, a general home inspector, and potentially a specialist inspector to look at specific areas of the home. On the sellers' side, we typically aren't there in person, but we do follow up with the buyers' agent and stop by to see how the inspection went!

Do you have any real estate questions that you want answered? If so, I'd love to answer them for you! Comment your questions below or send us a DM, and we will answer those for you in our "Ask Allison" series! 🏠

Home staging is the process of preparing a home to perform its best as a commodity in the marketplace. It allows a buyer to see your home in its best light and tends to help them easily see themselves living in it. That emotional connection also helps buyers overlook some of any of the home’s shortcomings! 🚪

Our team has a roster of professionals at the ready that we can recommend for staging and pre-market home prep. And we can help coordinate all the work and hold your hand throughout the process.

Even better, we can help you pay for all of this upfront work. Compass Concierge is our exclusive service for sellers wanting their home to look its best before hitting the market. From decor decisions to new paint colors, we’re able to cover the cost of this work upfront with no hidden fees or interest. It’s our way of investing in your home so that it sells faster and for more money!

We can talk you through the benefits, as well as consult with you about how to best position your home for this healthy, but changing real estate market. 📈

Thank you for choosing us to help navigate you in your real estate journey, and congrats on the sale of your home! Here's to new beginnings. ✨

"My husband and I sold our house in spring of 2022, and Allison made the process as easy as it could possibly be, even when facing the unexpected. She and her team were communicative, relentlessly responsive and supportive, and completely professional every step of the way. At no point did we feel as if we weren't her #1 priority. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Allison, for your hard work and great attitude!"

Real Estate Talk: The Current Market & Where We are Heading ✨

Despite all the talk of a recession, economists aren’t yet worried about a serious one starting this year. Some believe 2023 could paint a more grim financial picture.

Houses become more expensive to own as interest rates climb; however, they often become cheaper to buy. Higher rates equate to fewer buyers, meaning sellers must work harder to attract them. That tends to translate into lower prices.

It’ll be easier for qualified buyers to move back into the depths of the market. Yes, your interest rate will be higher, but 6 percent remains a respectable price for money. And since earning a return in real estate is about time, not timing, you should be ready to move when the right home comes along.

Fewer buyers also mean sellers can’t be as demanding. Inspections, for example, and offers with financing contingencies, will once again become the norm.

To the best of my knowledge, I’d say things are going to finally normalize. We won’t see 80 offers on a single listing or $100,000 offers above list. Buyers will have time to tour homes, talk to mortgage brokers, and make sound decisions out from under the pressure synonymous with the last two years.

Sounds good to us!

If you want to chat about the market, see some homes, find a mortgage professional or learn about life in our market, email me at [email protected] to arrange a time to talk!
