The tech company, redefined
Now more than ever, brokerages are looking for technological advances to gain an advantage over the competition. Consider the rapid rise of Compass, a startup brokerage with a focus on developing cutting-edge technology, which has led to a nearly $2 billion valuation and the signing of 2,000 agents since 2016.
Compass has committed to cutting down on the inefficiencies in the real estate industry so that its agents have access to an easy-to-use platform that houses all the tools agents need to make more sales and advance their career, says founder and CEO Robert Reffkin.
