Compass is a technology-driven real estate platform focused on seamless and intelligent home buying, selling and renting. “We are elated to be part of the upswing in one of the region’s most dynamic, high-end communities,” says Beth Butler, Compass Florida President, of the recent opening of their second Miami branch office on Bayshore Drive on iconic Dinner Key. “Compass sees Coconut Grove as not only the next great opportunity after Miami Beach, but hugely important to growing our brand organically throughout South Florida. This is a vibrant community marked by its affinity for the arts, cultural history and green spaces. It faces one of the region’s most prized natural treasures, Biscayne National Park. As part of Compass’ community approach, a partnership with key stakeholders to preserve and celebrate the park is being explored.” The new office will have 40-50 agents working the area from South Grove to Brickell; Compass.com.
