Big news! We are thrilled to announce that we are joining the Compass team! It has been a wonderful 12 years at Coldwell Banker, but it was time for a change and we were fortunate enough to be handpicked by the Compass CEO to join the team. We are absolutely thrilled about the move!

We are moving for our clients
We chose Compass for one simple reason: Compass is the future of real estate. Our sellers will get access to the latest marketing technology and service. Our buyers will gain access to the most user-friendly, intuitive and results-driven mobile apps created to date. For example: so many of our buyers have such a hard time searching for homes within a certain school’s boundaries. Compass’ apps are set up with school searches from the get go!

Compass’ amazing and innovative new ways of working
For sellers, Compass is in the business of lifting barriers. To help ease the financial barriers around getting a home ready for the market, Compass will lend sellers a deposit of up to 3% of the projected sales price upfront to fund staging, painting, fixing up…whatever projects are necessary. For others, the barrier may be a desire or necessity to sell before buying a new home. In this case, Compass offers clients a one year interest-free bridge loan. Once our homes are listed, Compass’ marketing capacity is unparalleled. One of the coolest tools we use is their proprietary predictive algorithm that tracks people’s online real estate searches. These are just a few examples I am most excited about (call us for more details on how it all works!).

Compass is constantly innovating. One of my favorite tools is their Collections tool. Within the tool, I store all the comparable listings for properties, and status changes will update in real time. And, all of the tools look as amazing as they work. The marketing team at Compass is made up of designers, strategists and producers from brands like L’Oreal, Conde Nast, WeWork, Twitter and J. Walter Thompson.

An incredible foundation
All of the corporate team at Compass is incredible. Ori Allon and Robert Reffkin are the two founders. Ori was a Director of Engineering at Twitter after selling his company to the company in 2011. His first business was acquired by Google, making him the first to have companies acquired by both Twitter and Google. Before founding Compass, Robert worked at Goldman Sachs as Chief of Staff to the President following five years working in the firm’s private equity arm. In 2005, Robert served as a White House Fellow and special assistant to the Secretary of Treasury. Most recently, Joseph Sirosh, the former CTO of Microsoft, joined the team.

We are always looking for the next best way to maximize our client service, and I truly believe that joining Compass takes our business to the next level. It is going to be an exciting 2019!
