Compass Quarterly

Summer 2016

The finer things in life.

A high-end real estate brokerage waxing lyrical about luxury is nothing new. Our hope for this edition was to, instead, use its pages to draft our own definition — luxury as the intersection of sophisticated design, seamless technology, and the unparalleled knowledge of our agents. These are the characteristics imbued in the homes we represent, the companies we admire, and the communities we serve. Welcome to the good life.
