About Compass

A Real Estate Company with a Purpose.

Our mission is to help everyone find their place in the world.

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.

Guiding you from coast to coast

Since our launch in 2012, we’ve aimed to simplify the real estate process, one market at a time. With agents and teams serving vibrant communities coast to coast, Compass is now the country’s largest independent real estate brokerage.

On the radar

From our early days as Urban Compass, 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.

Fast-Company“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.”
Business Insider“While Compass functions likes 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.”
