About Fred

I’ve been an agent for over 20 years in Marin/Sonoma Counties and I still LOVE working with the incredible people in my community. Originally from New Orleans, I moved to the Bay Area in 1980 and have loved California since the first day I stepped on this special ground. I jumped into the Tech business in the 80’/90’s, working with Apple and Microsoft then built a 100+ person consulting business in San Francisco focusing on database analytics and data mining. I have two wonderful kids, one living in Marin and one living in Germany and the greatest most supportive wife anyone could ask for. LIFE IS GREAT!


Testimonials

Compass Real Estate is a natural fit for my marketing, networking, and data skills. We are changing the face of Real Estate! Here is what a few of my friends say...

  • "We have experienced both buying and selling homes with Fred and I can say with confidence that he puts 150% into his transactions; professionally and personally.  He posses astonishing energy to get the job done but yet he is flexible and understanding of client needs. He is confident and passionate about his work and it shows. Fred guided us through the sale of our home with meticulous preparation; it was no surprise that we had two offers before the open house. We would certainly recommend Fred Kusin for any real estate transaction and we congratulate him on achieving such positive outcomes." – Bob and Cathy Weber
  • "Fred is the greatest. I started to look for a new home with another realtor at another company and got so depressed I started looking on my own. Then I met Freddie at an open house and got so excited again about finding the right home. Fred called me to follow up on some information I requested on the current real estate market. I found Fred to be so up beat, honest, and enthusiastic, it rubbed off on me. I switched to Fred and found a perfect home in my price range.  I consider Freddie my "new best friend". I highly recommend Fred Kusin." – Carol Wiederhoeft
  • "We tried selling our property with another agent before hiring Fred and wasted our time. Our property sat on the market for seasons without a purchase offer. When we handed the job over to Fred, he not only raised the price, but got multiple offers within a very short period of time. We even ended up selling the property for over the asking price. The reason was the hard work, determination, and expert marketing that Freddie attributed to our project. I highly recommend Fred Kusin to anyone buying or selling their property. His integrity and hosesty cannot be matched." – Rick Decarli
  • "Fred simultaneously handled two transactions for me. The first was my Aunt and Uncle’s home in Fairfax and the second was a duplex for my nonprofit organization. He sold the duplex before there was even an open house. The closing was seamless. My Aunt and Uncle’s home was a challenging sale because the condition of the property needed significant attention prior to the sale. Fred almost single-handedly arranged for the work that needed to be completed before the property went on the market. His recommendations proved to be exactly what was needed to maximize the selling price. Not only did he have exceptional recommendations for companies that performed the necessary work, he handled most of the details of getting the work scheduled, keeping subcontractors on task, etc. He did a stellar job at marketing the property and was able to get a front page article in the Marin Independent Journal and coverage by ABC on Channel 7. Under his leadership, the property was transformed in a short period of time. In this market, selling property can be challenging. With Fred’s expertise and contacts in the trades, we were able to close on the property in a short period of time while maximizing the sales price. Again, the closing was seamless. In all of the real estate transactions I have been involved in over the years, I can’t think of another transaction that was as flawless as this was. Fred’s thoughtful, professional approach really paid off in the successful closings of both properties.” – Mary Stompe
