Several months ago, we wrote about becoming founding members of Compass Lamorinda. Compass is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing the industry’s top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless. Compass is unique in that they are the only technology-based real estate brokerage that is not geared to removing human beings from the process. Compass embraces a culture of collaborativeness, kindness and professionalism.
Just last week three incredibly well known and respected real estate groups joined Compass Lamorinda. We recently opened a temporary office at 261 Lafayette Circle until we establish our permanent space in the near future. If you are in the neighborhood, please come by and say hello.
You may have already read or heard that Compass recently acquired Paragon Real Estate Group, a well-known and respected San Francisco brokerage. According to a recent press release, “With the addition of Paragon, Compass’ Bay Area team has grown to more than 500 agents representing more than $4.5 billion in sales volume last year. Compass is now the number one real estate company in San Francisco by sales volume and market share.” Compass founder Ori Allon stated, “as we began to look for ways to expand in San Francisco, the opportunity to pair Paragon and their agents’ expertise and close community ties across the entire Bay Area with the technology, marketing and support we provide to our agents at Compass, was an ideal one.”
One example of how Compass is changing real estate is their plan to introduce a new modernized real estate house sign. The new sign will be illuminated so that it is visible at night, customized for each home and embedded with Bluetooth technology that pops up home details and sales information on buyers’ phones as they approach. Compass aims to make the real estate sales process more efficient and effective by “Helping everyone find their place in the world”.
