Why Compass?

Compass is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing the industry’s top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless.


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.

Compass: Our Company Mission

We're a real estate company with a purpose. Want to join us on this mission?

Whether you know us as Urban Compass or just Compass, since our launch in 2012 we've aimed to
​​​​​​​simplify the real estate process, one market at a time.

Guiding you from coast to coast

With more than 17,000 agents serving vibrant communities across the U.S., Compass is now
​​​​​​​the country's largest independent real estate brokerage.

CONCIERGE

Get fronted for the cost of home improvement services with no interest — ever.

Compass Concierge is the hassle-free way to sell your home faster and for a higher price with services like staging, flooring, painting, and more.

BRIDGE LOAN SERVICES

A simple solution to bridge the gap between the home you have and the home you want.​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​Compass Bridge Loan Services gets you access to competitive rates and dedicated support from industry-leading lenders, with the exclusive option to get up to six months of your loan payments fronted when you sell your home with a Compass agent.

CARES

As we work to help everyone find their place in the world, Compass Cares empowers agents and employees alike to support meaningful causes right where it counts most: at home.

"With Compass Cares, our people will give their time and donations locally in ways that are personally meaningful to them — because no one knows a community better than the agents and employees who serve it."

Robert Reffkin
Founder and CEO

A National Network of Local Experts

Our agents are trusted advisors, helping everyone from the first-time buyer to the seasoned seller make better, more informed decisions.

A Diverse Team With a Single Vision

We’re bringing together the world’s sharpest, most creative professionals across real estate, engineering, business, marketing, and design.

On the Radar

From our early days with a single downtown Manhattan office, through our evolution into the national force
we are today, the press has been covering our rapid growth — our entrepreneurial people and our
​​​​​​​integrated platform.

“And it’s no wonder Compass has shaken things up: As anyone who’s ever tried to rent or buy property in New York knows, the experience is loaded with pain points — exactly the type of stuff that turns mere ideas into thriving startups.”

“While Compass functions like a traditional broker, the company's promise is using technology to reduce the time and friction of buying and selling a house or apartment... last month Compass released an app designed to replace ‘stale’ quarterly market reports with more dynamic information."

"You might think of Compass as the equivalent of the launch of the first iPhone to the various other smartphones that preceded it."

Work with Kathy

What's my "Why?" I became a real estate agent because I believe that each sale or purchase of a home is more than a transaction. It's a life event. Through a consultative and modern approach, I uniquely guide my clients in the next move of their story.
