Compass Quarterly

Summer 2017

Like every trip, this issue starts and ends at home.

As we welcome summer, the cities Compass serves stir and come alive. Through the pages of our Destinations issue, be transported to new places, guided by the locals who know them best. Meet our globetrotting agents and discover how travel enriches their real estate practice. Be inspired by wanderlust-fueled Instagrammers to bring new stories and souvenirs within your own four walls. Above all, it is our hope that the season’s experiences will linger long after the final suitcase is unpacked. Because for all the countless destinations to which we go, there is only one to which we always return: home.
