A brokerage of unparalleled agents

As an innovative residential real estate firm, we empower our agents so they have more time for advising their clients. With the solutions-driven mindset of a startup and the sophistication of a luxury brand, Compass is the future of real estate.

A tech company reinventing the space

To lead the industry requires the smartest tools built by the brightest minds across engineering, design, and strategy. Through our proprietary platform, Compass is changing how agents and clients navigate the process of finding or selling a home.


national reach


“The real estate industry is a $217 trillion-plus global asset class, yet it has been largely untouched by technology. Buying and selling decisions are among the most important a person can make in life, but today, the majority of those decisions are based on gut instincts or outdated information. At Compass, we believe that agents—and their clients—deserve better.

By combining the solutions-driven mindset of a startup and the sophistication of a luxury brand, we’re building the operating system for real estate. We empower agents from start to finish by developing innovative digital tools and customized marketing strategies. Why? Because we know that when agents can spend more time building relationships with clients, everyone wins.”
