Compass Quarterly

Spring 2016

The heart of the matter.

At the heart of this edition is, well, the beating heart of our operation. Not only has Compass’ own CEO run 50 marathons, but our offices pulse with agents who frequent their cities’ bike paths, yoga studios, and urban harbors, regularly engaging with and exploring the distinct terrains. Join us as we celebrate our active agents and the vibrant communities they serve from coast to coast.
