In 15 years, I've only worked at 2 brokerages. Sotheby's (which I loved) and Compass. I'm so proud of, and inspired by, the company that we are building at Compass. In the last few months, we have launched Compass Concierge; a program that lends clients funds to help prepare property for the market (repairs, painting, staging, etc). And now we're preparing to launch a bridge loan program, which in Los Angeles is astounding. If you find a house you want to buy, but would need to sell your house, we'll be able to lend our clients the funds necessary to finance new purchase - enabling a bridge to transition to the sale of the current house. That is a radical advantage in LA - a market that is so highly competitive and with such low inventory. Historically, this is almost an impossibility. It's an honor to be part of a brokerage that strives to offer real value to the people we work with.
It's snowing today in Vail CO (where I grew up)- Happy LA May.
REAL Trends, a ranking of real estate brokerages in the United States, has named Compass the #1 independent real estate brokerage and the #3 overall brokerage by sales volume in the US!
Experience the real estate sign, reimagined.
In a world built on connectivity, Compass is rethinking every aspect of the client journey. With design in our DNA and technology at our core, we’re proud to unveil our revolutionary take on an industry classic.
What makes our sign so different?
When activated by a motion sensor, the sign emits a soft, LED glow, inviting all within a 20-foot radius to engage.
By simply scanning the QR code, prospective buyers can view customized listing details, floor plans, and photography.
As a Compass agent, I can connect directly to the sign via Bluetooth, managing all content directly through the Compass Real Estate mobile app.
And it's got people talking.
Our new sign is already generating buzz. See what the press has to say below:

"It is the most visible, most effective, and most mundane marketing tool in all of real estate. And it hasn't changed in more than a century, until now."
