  • I’m looking to buy or sell my home. Why should I hire Property Collective?
    Working with a traditional real estate brokerage is a process that can sometimes feel more autopilot than authentic. Homes listed with Property Collective benefit from the exposure of the brand behind a nationally-syndicated television series, multiple best-selling books, and a massive social media following. Bespoke marketing plans highlight each property’s best features through the lens of good design and market expertise. Our buyers enjoy unprecedented access to design resources that create potential where others may not see it. Once the right buyer or property is identified, an expert negotiator with the finest customer support team in the business handles all the transaction details so our clients can focus on the things they value most.
