Veteran investment sales brokers Adelaide Polsinelli and Ronda Rogovin have joined new-tech real estate powerhouse Compass.
The former Eastern Consolidated executives will help the residential upstart build a New York investment sales team that will also include agents Mitchell Goldstick and Trystan Polsinelli.
“We are honored to partner with Compass on the forefront of this disruption of epic proportion. The real estate industry is ripe for change, which comes in the shape of new advances in technology, women having seats in every boardroom, and diversity being welcomed. Compass celebrates and values the uniqueness of talent and understands how to support brokers so they can excel in any cycle,” said Polsinelli.
Compass Commercial will focus on providing technology, marketing, support and community to help agents grow their business in the commercial real estate arena. With Compass Commercial, Compass is expanding its footprint beyond residential real estate. The official launch comes on the heels of Compass’ merger with Paragon Real Estate Group in San Francisco. “We are excited about Compass Commercial. Part of our decision to merge with Compass was the resources they offered and we are excited that those resources will extend across residential and commercial,” said Bob Dadurka, Founder of Paragon.“We are delighted to be a part of that success.”
With over 30 years of experience, Adelaide Polsinelli has sold over 1,400 properties valued at over $20 billion in every asset class. She called her move to Compass an “exciting opportunity” adding, “Ronda and I decided to collaborate on this venture and bring our experience and relationships to Compass where we believe we can help create a tech and talent based platform superior to any other.”
Rogovin has been a force in the New York sales market for nearly 40 years, selling over 1,000 properties in every asset class.
She said, “My commitment to being able to service my clients with the most advanced tools of the future, and the Compass platform to support me, was critical to my decision. I believe Compass has the potential to be the market leader in investment sales as they are in residential sales.”
Polsinelli and Rogovin are the latest high profile brokers to announce new roles following the news that Eastern Consolidated will close its doors after 40 years in business. The shutdown left 100 brokers looking for new firms, including retail rainmaker James Famularo, who has since set up shop at Meridian Capital.
Compass has committed to deepening its presence in its existing markets by opening 70 new offices in 2018. In addition to the Greater Boston Area, Compass has a presence in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Orange County, The Hamptons, Santa Barbara and Montecito, and Aspen.
