The concierge-level service that Hilton-Pardee offers, means there’s no handoff to a TC. Agents are given support by listing managers who help make the process more seamless, and uphold the VIP experience. Positioning the home in its most positive light is one of the most important parts of the service, and that means putting in the effort and resources to make this possible for clients without putting the extra burden of executing on them.
