P.S. Platinum Has Big News

P.S. Platinum Joins Compass

It has been a very exciting week for P.S. Platinum! We are pleased to announce that P.S. Platinum Real Estate has agreed to join Compass, the real estate technology company. P.S. Platinum will be apart of Compass’ launch into the San Diego market. Compass and P.S. Platinum have a shared vision for doing business: being service-driven for clients with a culture-first approach.

Compass is a real estate technology company that is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless. Founded in 2012 by Robert Reffkin and Ori Allon, Compass operates in 12 major markets across the country, has over 2,400 agents and 50+ offices. Current major Compass markets include: New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Miami, Orange County, The Hamptons, Santa Barbara, Montecito, and Aspen. Compass plans to continue growing to achieve their 20/20 vision of having 20% market share in the top 20 U.S. markets by 2020.

“I’m incredibly inspired by Compass’ focus on elevating the real estate experience for everyone by empowering their agents,” said Brett Combs, founder of P.S. Platinum. “When I started P.S. Platinum 17 years ago, I set out to be the best brokerage possible by bringing together San Diego’s most ethical, client-driven agents, even if it meant not being the biggest. Now, at Compass, I’m excited to watch our agents do both.”

“When we looked at our growth across Southern California, San Diego became a clear and natural priority in our national expansion.” said Rob Lehman, Chief Revenue Officer at Compass. “P.S. Platinum is a fantastic strategic addition to our team as we kick off Compass San Diego. We look forward to leveraging their local expertise alongside our founding team to grow our San Diego presence.”

With P.S. Platinum, Compass will be the number two brokerage in Del Mar and represent more than $300 million in 2017 sales volume. Over the next weeks and months, Compass will work with P.S. Platinum to deepen its San Diego presence -- particularly in Carmel Valley and North County -- with new agents, offices, and employees.

The existing P.S. Platinum signature lounge offices will remain, but keep an eye out for new signage over the next few months to include Compass branding. In addition, P.S. Platinum agents and staff will transition to Compass and continue providing clients with awesome customer service. For more information about Compass, visit compass.com.
