Brandon, comes from a prominent Tennessee real estate family and possesses an innate flair for negotiating, customer service, and creatively strategizing to fulfill each client's needs. Remarkably passionate about his work, he sees real estate as a business of rare opportunity, recognizing endless possibility where it may not be obvious. Known for his keen eye for spotting potential, Brandon specializes in properties that are unique, that are not readily available, or are not yet on the market. He is an avid property investor who feels strongly about the inherent value in all NYC real estate. He is extremely knowledgeable of his market, and works intently to help his buyers and sellers achieve their every goal. "What you put into this business is what you get out of it, my clients know I'm with them every step of the way," says this self-professed workaholic. Prior to excelling in real estate, he travelled the world as a top supermodel for 10 years. He is also an advocate not only for his real estate clients, but for charitable organizations as well, a passion he exhibits in his service on various boards. Brandon founded and operates Hopehousehonduras.org an orphanage in Honduras. He also volunteers for Aids & MS Walks; is pictured on the NOH8 campaign and Marc Jacobs Skin Cancer t-shirts in return for his active involvement. His interests include the great outdoors, architecture, film, and dog rescue.
New York native Chris is one of those rare personalities that can enter a room full of people, be completely at ease and immediately relate to everyone he meets. It's a warm and empathetic approach that is the cornerstone of his more than 12 years of New York City real estate success. An intuitive and caring people person, he's able to thoroughly assess his clients' needs and leverage his extensive city knowledge and real estate expertise to exceed their expectations. An expert at high-end, luxury loft sales, Chris knows that no deal is too large or small to warrant his complete attention and workhorse-like devotion. Chris honed his elite client service skills during a successful 15-year career in the hospitality industry where he managed and founded well-known nightclubs. In addition to his real estate work, he's a passionate believer in giving back and a member of several of the city's most active charitable organizations. Chris was born and raised in Manhattan, attended Riverdale Country Day School and Wheaton College. He has resided all over the city and in the Hamptons, which makes him an ideal resource for those considering a relocation or second home. Today, Chris lives in the Flatiron District where he can frequently be found in Madison Square Park with his new puppy.
Stacy's unique approach to real estate focuses on educating clients rather than "selling" to them. She listens closely to their needs, provides them with the appropriate options and does everything she can to support their informed decision-making. With a broad base of professional experience, she's well-qualified for her role as educator. She started in the real estate industry as a recruiter for the building trades and has an unparalleled understanding of the entire lifecycle of a structure from design through construction. She owns her own search firm that fills positions in construction, interior design, architecture and engineering, so she knows a thing or two about how to assemble a great team and get the job done. And whether in public accounting — her first career — recruitment or real estate, customer service has always been at the forefront of everything Stacey does. She treats all of her clients as if they were a dear friend, which many become, and she's known for her tireless work ethic, enthusiasm and drive. Stacey earned her bachelor's degree in economics from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and she's New York State Certified Public Accountant. She's an avid figure skater and a SAG-AFTRA actress with many impressive film and television credits to her name.
As an in-demand model with a flair for business, Yoon brings a sophisticated global worldview and a passion for New York to every interaction. "I love working in an industry that is so synonymous with New York City, with some of the greatest architecture and homes in the world," she says. Yoon's enthusiasm fuels her real estate work, making each transaction a joy. Clients and peers alike praise her organized, diligent and hardworking approach, as well as her amiable and fun-loving personality. Prior to Compass, Yoon most recently worked on-site for TOWN New Development, and throughout her professional life, she's forged invaluable sales and marketing skills and the ability to connect with people to reach a common goal. Originally from Australia, Yoon had a long career as a successful model for premier brands and fashion magazines. An entrepreneur at heart, she also worked in luxury fashion/retail roles and later launched a first-of-its-kind partnership bringing western bridal fashions to Seoul's "Rodeo Drive."

A self- professed "Downtown Girl," she loves exploring with her son and seeing the wonder of Gotham through his eyes.
