Why Compass? Our Mission.

After 18+ years in New York luxury real estate – having worked at both one of the largest firms for my first 11 years and a boutique luxury firm for 7, I felt the need to grow and be inspired again. Looking forward to the future, I felt that as we move forward in the world, technology will be playing a bigger part in the real estate industry. Real estate is always going to be a person to person business, but how you search for your home and how we are able to put technology to work for you, in my mind will make all the difference in your success.

Here’s what Compass is all about…for you. If you have any questions, reach out. No obligations. I’m happy to answer any of your real estate questions. Connected from London to San Francisco, Hong Kong to Dubai, anywhere you go, I’m here to help advise you. – Tony Sargent, NYC
