THE 2019 LEADING 100 BAY AREA TOP PRODUCERS
Now in its 4th year, and in partnership with Real Trends, we announce the 100 top producers in Bay Area real estate for Individual and Team sales.  The awards will be supported by a special supplement appearing in San Francisco and Silicon Valley magazines.

Luxury market

THE LUXURY MARKET: HOW IS IT DOING?

THE COMPASS EFFECT: IN CONVERSATION WITH FOUNDER & CEO, ROBERT REFFKIN
 
Having acquired, absorbed or merged with three Bay Area brokerages within the last 12 months (Paragon Real Estate, Pacific Union, Alain Pinel Realtors), COMPASS is making its mark in the Bay Area. We discuss the moves – past, present and contemplated – and the impact that this consolidation will have upon the marketplace and the realtors who service it.

Rising Star awards

 Mind probe research for wineries The 2019 Real Estate Boot Camp program

THE EEG NEVER LIES!
In partnership with the sensory experts, Senspoint and Thimus, an international leader in neuroscience and consumer biometrics, we strap on miniaturized mind probes, visit Bay Area open houses incognito, and capture instantaneous biometric feedback about the experiences without the reporting filters and mistaken conventional wisdom that accompany most open house feedback. The findings will leave you aghast!
