Compass Quarterly

Winter 2017

Our vision — then and now.

Nothing forces reflection more than the dawn of a new year. As Compass confronted the arrival of 2017, we witnessed formerly futuristic fields — artificial intelligence, virtual reality, intergalactic travel — actualize around us, and observed the reinvention of neighborhoods nationwide. But just as we looked back, so, too, do we anticipate the achievements yet to come. From intelligent new infrastructure in Boston and Miami to landmark restoration in San Francisco and the Hamptons, every milestone represents another brick in the future of real estate.
