The level of agent support and technology integration at Compass is second to none and I will improve the way I serve my own clients. I am excited to take my business to a new level.

In mid-August, Compass announced that it had ended its stock and cash incentives as a recruiting tool for new agents, and that new agents would be required to use the standard commission split. used by the brokerage in their specific market. Agents entering the company with a better allocation will be able to retain their allocation for one year before moving to the Compass allocation model.

Some in the industry have speculated that such drastic changes to its agent compensation may or may not dampen the brokerage’s otherwise rapid growth in recent years.
