Throughout the first half of 2021, Compass Illinois greatly expanded within the Chicagoland region. Founded in 2012, this real estate technology company offers software designed for handling all aspects of the industry: marketing, brokerage services and communication with clients. And those services are catching on. Compass Chicagoland has just announced a slate of growth accomplishments from the last six months.
During 2021 so far, 77 new agents have joined Compass Chicagoland: a 63% increase from 2020. With more than 1,400 agents working, the Compass fleet has already closed $4.13 billion in sales. Compass has also doubled its office count in the area and currently ranks at #2 for closed sales volume and market share. Year over year growth at Compass is now the highest in the MLS.
Rachael Rohn, the Compass Chicagoland Regional President, notes that the level of local growth is unparalleled. “Agents are joining us every day,” she said, “because they not only see the value in our proprietary programs and technologies, but they also share in our mission to help everyone find their place in the world. At the end of the day, we strongly value the connections we form, not just the contracts we sign.”
Compass Senior Managing Director Fran Broude agrees. “Despite the pandemic and resulting changes to the real estate market, our agents saw great success as they were able to quickly adapt and utilize Compass’s virtual tools and platforms to conduct business from anywhere,” Broude said. Thanks to Compass, “they did it all while remaining present and involved in their communities, giving back and offering support where needed.”
