THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is different. Like Compass, Kevin Sneddon believes in doing things differently – not as things have been done, but as things should be done. In fact, he joined forces with Compass to elevate each client’s real estate experience to the next level by deploying a “high-touch meets high-tech” approach to luxury residential brokerage. The objective is to exceed client expectations in every possible way.
THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is experienced. We know luxury real estate – and we know the market. We are hard-working and accomplished professionals with high standards and endless drive. We use our extensive knowledge to help our clients successfully navigate the complex real estate landscape. We leverage our marketing, sales and financial services experience in concert with our deal-making prowess to deliver for our clients – each and every time.
THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is limitless. We believe in the power of a team - where complementing skill sets align to create an unparalleled level of service. This strategic method, where everyone plays to their strengths, consistently delivers the desired result. But our service goes way beyond the transaction. With a professional network that extends to architecture, design, construction, financing, legal representation and more, we are a full-service operation that is second to none.
THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is seamless. We recognize that real estate has become a global asset class - and that many of our core clients now own multiple properties in several markets. That’s why we’re positioned to deliver a seamless experience across our clients’ entire real estate portfolio, including strategic advice and consultation. Because real estate is so dynamic and hyper-local, we are building a unique nationwide team of high-performing and like-minded associates to service the needs of our clients – wherever they might be. We are presently in New York, Los Angeles, the Hamptons and Greenwich – and will be expanding to additional markets moving forward.
THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is at your service. Experience the difference.

Emily Bregman | Partner - Los Angeles
Emily Bregman is much more than a top-1%-producing agent—she’s a concierge, an advisor, and most notably, a connector. “My clients are for life,” she likes to say. “Our relationship doesn’t end because a transaction does; I’m always in place and ready to help with anything, from a specialty painter to a good area doctor. My goal is to match up dream homes and lifestyles, and that’s as exciting to me as the transaction itself.” A former successful stock broker known for her work ethic, Emily also has a key ace up her sleeve: Her husband, Merlin, an experienced builder, expert construction consultant and a licensed real estate agent. He’s an indispensable resource and advisor to her clients, and with her on point assistant, Bethany, is also a pivotal member of her team. Those two, alongside Emily’s extensive network gleaned from more than a decade spent living in Santa Monica—specializing in Westside properties from Venice to Beverly Hills—allows her to offer a keen market savvy and a down-to-the-studs understanding of each property. She’s a source for both pocket and “whisper” listings too, and her combination of discretion and discipline has won her both A-list and international clients.
