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."
