Compass, the real estate technology company, announced today that The Mark Company, Pacific Union’s development division, will join forces with Compass Development to deliver premier sales and marketing services to luxury residential developers across the Western United States. With the most experienced new development professionals in the industry, the combined team’s research, planning and design, marketing and sales services will be enhanced by Compass’ national team of over 6,400 real estate professionals.

The Mark Company, founded in 1997, has represented more than 10,000 residences and generated over $5 billion in sales for some of the nation’s most notable and successful developments, including the Infinity in San Francisco, Evo in Los Angeles and The Martin in Las Vegas. The firm, a trusted partner to global leaders in residential development, recently set a record high watermark with a $4,500 per square foot sale at 181 Fremont, for the sale of the most expensive condominium in San Francisco.
“For over twenty years, The Mark Company has delivered record sales and extraordinary service to the West Coast development community,” said Justin D’Adamo, Head of New Development, Compass. “We are thrilled to welcome their team to Compass Development. Together, with our proprietary market intelligence, game-changing technology and expansive reach, we can counsel our developer clients on what to build while selling their properties faster and at a premium to the market.”

Compass currently has a presence in San Francisco, Marin, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Seattle, Aspen, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, Greenwich, Westchester, New York City, The Hamptons, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Naples and Miami.
“This merger creates an unbeatable team. The Mark Company’s outstanding track record with the nation’s leading developers, plus Compass’ dynamic market intelligence and technology, will win a seat at the table for every important development conversation going forward in the future.”
