Compass continues to make waves in the Dallas market. The technology-centric firm that merged with The Collective Residential in January now boasts an impressive roster of 51 local agents who have represented more than $600 million in sales.
“We’ve been absolutely thrilled with the local traction and the enthusiasm we have scene on the ground in Dallas,” Compass Chief Revenue Officer Rob Lehman said.
“What was so exciting to me about Compass and why I feel it’s so revolutionary is that they are creating a completely different platform where my clients and I can exist in the same place, collaborate on the search, and communicate more effectively with each other,” Provenzano said.
She believes that technology is changing the entire industry, and that the successful agents of the future will be the ones who are willing to embrace it. Provenzano said moving to Compass was her opportunity to accept that challenge and evolve with the market.
According to Lehman, part of Compass’s strategy is creating a business platform that treats agents more like CEOs than sales people. The company’s goal is to have a 20 percent market share in the 20 largest US cities over the next two years.
“Dallas is the sixth largest real estate market in the US, and it is a massive priority for us,” he said. “It is truly one of the core markets that we want to build that expansion around.”
Compass also plans to set up shop in Houston and Austin before the end of the year.
“We’ve found that there’s been an incredible amount of organic interest in what we are dong,” Lehman said. “We want to be the market leader in every market we operate in.”
