Sports & Entertainment Division


Dedicated. Discreet. Driven.


Having worked with many celebrities and public figures in sports, entertainment, and media, I understand the level of professionalism required for such transactions. As a member of the exclusive Compass Sports and Entertainment division, I am able to bring my level of discretion and service to real estate transactions for professionals in these industries. Working alongside an impressive national network of like-minded agents, we are able to bring the services of Compass to this exceptional group of clients.


About This Elite Division

High-profile real estate decisions demand a consultant committed to a stress-free transaction. Created to service the distinct real estate needs of professional athletes and entertainers, Compass Sports and Entertainment is a national network of rigorously vetted, highly skilled agents, who offer the attention of a boutique firm with the marketing and tech prowess of a national brokerage.

  • Access to a database of luxury furnished rentals and off-market listings nationwide
  • Proprietary technology to inform and enhance the client experience
  • Targeted advertising to a discreet audience matched with person-to-person communications
  • An in-house press team to liaise with client publicists and facilitate property coverage in premier real estate and lifestyle outlets
