About Lara
Lara Shuqom is Co-Founder and Principal of The Collective, a top-producing team based out of Compass' Back Bay office. As one of the first agents to open Compass in Boston, Lara and her business partner launched The Collective to arm individuals, families, organizations, and investors with strong, ethical, discreet, sophisticated, and solutions-oriented real estate advice. Since its inception, The Collective has provided more sellers in New England with the services of Compass's signature program: Compass Concierge.

Lara hails from one of the original families of Massachusetts that includes an author of the Commonwealth’s First Constitution of 1780. Born abroad in the Middle East and raised in Atlanta, Lara returned to her New England roots for business and art education at Simmons University before quickly ascending in Boston as one of the top agents in both residential and commercial real estate.

Her extensive market knowledge, excellent reputation, and unparalleled service empowers her clients with the ultimate high-touch experience. Her global perspective combined with her skills in the art of communication and negotiation, enables her to act as a liaison for her clients as they navigate the marketplace.
