Compass announced that top producer Toni Haber has joined the company along with her four-member team.
A 30-year industry veteran with more than $1 billion in domestic and international sales, Ms. Haber is one of the most sought-after brokers in the country well-known for her innovative use of technology combined with personal attention to drive optimal results for her clients.
Ms. Haber joins Compass from Douglas Elliman where for the past 27 years her team was ranked among the firm’s most prolific. The Haber Team has also consistently been named to REAL Trends/ The Wall Street Journal’s prestigious list of the top thousand real estate teams in the country, as well as REAL Trend’s Best Agents in America. The team also was named as one of The Real Deal’s top 75 NYC brokers in 2016. She has set numerous penthouse sale and price-per-square-foot records across Manhattan, and has a vast portfolio of clientele in New York City, the Hamptons, Aspen, Connecticut, Florida, California, as well as Europe.
“I’m truly grateful for my experience at Douglas Elliman and all of the support during the nearly three decades spent building my business there, but moving to Compass is the right step for me at this point in my career,” said Ms. Haber. “Through Compass’ fresh approach to technology and culture, I saw an opportunity to help build something that will not only change the industry but most importantly improve the client experience.”
While Ms. Haber has achieved enviable success in both resales and new development, she is committed to helping other agents build their own careers by leading talks and seminars across the country.
Joining Ms. Haber at Compass from Elliman will be her wife Carol Burns, a 25-year finance industry veteran with both not-for-profit and private sector experience; Victoria Frost, a seasoned real estate professional with 10 years of combined experience in both New York City and Los Angeles; and Jared Brown who has 12 years of industry sales experience in both New York City and Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled to welcome Toni and her team to Compass. I am confident that their business will achieve further success through our broad marketing reach and technology resources in luxury markets across the country,” said Robert Reffkin, Compass Founder & CEO.
Compass was launched in 2013 by Ori Allon, who sold two previous companies to Google and Twitter, and business partner Reffkin, a former Chief of Staff to Goldman Sachs’ President & COO. The Company began its national expansion last year, opening offices in Washington, D.C., Miami, Boston, the Hamptons, Los Angeles, and Aspen.
In total, Compass has raised $135 million in investor funding, more than any other residential brokerage in the country, from key investors including Institutional Venture Partners, Thrive Capital, Founders Fund, 406 Ventures, Advance Publications, Inc., Kenneth Chenault, CEO of American Express and Marc Benioff, Founder and CEO of Salesforce.com.
