I am beyond thrilled to share with you all that I have joined the Compass family and officially partnered with the Eighty8 Group. So excited and honored to be apart of such a creative, innovative and inspiring organization. Between our unsurpassed Compass technology and our highly esteemed, passionate and knowledgeable agents at the Eighty8 Group we are a full service, tailored organization dedicated to meeting each individual clients needs from first time home buyers to commercial investors.
A Technology driven Real Estate Start-up Compass combines exceptional agents with best in-class technology to make buying or selling your home, smart, seamless and efficient. It is my unyielding belief that Compass is the future of Real Estate. Founded in 2012 Compass has to date, raised nearly $1 Billion in funding backed by the same investors responsible for the launch and success of some of the most promising and influential start-ups and technology companies in the world. Some you may have heard of... Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Airbnb, WeWork and Lyft, to mention a few. As Amazon is to Retail, Apple to Technology, Compass is to Real Estate. If you don't know, you soon will.
Founded by Entrepreneurial giants Robert Refkin and Ori Allon in a New York space with 30 agents and one BIG vision, five years young and Compass has officially become the 6th largest Brokerage in the Country...and we're just getting started. Currently at a $2.2 Billion dollar valuation and climbing, Compass is primed to take the Number 1 spot in the Nation. Encompassing (pardon the pun) all of your housing and Real Estate related needs by revolutionizing the industry thru technology and exceptional agents. While founded on technology, agent empowerment is fundamental to the Compass mission. Enabling each and every agent to service our clients with cutting-edge inventiveness, exceptional integrity, care and enthusiasm. Now operating in every major city in the US our goal is to achieve 20% market share in 20% of U.S major cities by 2020. Has a nice ring to it...right?
"To be clear Brokerage firms as we currently know them will not exist within the next 10 years. Agent Teams will replace the Brokerage firm". - Robert Refkin at Inman...
