Working 7 days a week, Brian consistently exceeds client expectations and delivers incredible access, discretion and results for his buyers, sellers and developers alike.

Prior to joining Compass, Brian was a partner at Robert Paul Properties from 2014 until early 2019 when his interest in the business was acquired.

Prior to Millennium Partners, Brian was Director of North America Business Development for The Registry Collection, an international portfolio of luxury real estate properties available to members.
