Coley Laffoon is the Director of Residential Sales & New Development at Compass. Coley's experience in Los Angeles real estate is varied and comprehensive, from partnering with investors and developers to shepherding first-time buyers into new homes. In all cases, Coley's focus is on the process, serving equal parts co-pilot and consigliere. "Buying and selling is complicated, so having a competent, reassuring presence at their side makes for comfortable decisions and positive outcomes." Playing the role of steady hand is his strength: "Most clients don't buy or sell real estate regularly, but they know what they want and what works for their life. Turning their hopes, dreams and needs into reality is where the rubber hits the road, and it's the most valuable work I do as an agent."
