Compass has made a meteoric rise in its 10 years in the real estate business across the United States and its impact in Colorado is as evident as anywhere. Built on a vision of dreaming big, supporting the entrepreneur agent and bringing innovative technology and tools at the hands of its agents on behalf of their clients, Compass recently became the #1 brokerage in the country, was named a Fortune 500 Company and it took just two years for Compass to rise to the top of all Denver brokerages in sales volume, supplanting brokerages that have been established for decades throughout the state. In fact, Compass ranks #1 in both Denver and Boulder for total sales volume as well as in the distinct category of luxury sales ($2M+).
Furthered by more top sales in 2022, Compass also can add Douglas County to its list of accolades as the #1 brokerage for luxury sales in the county. With over $88,000,000+ in total closed volume in the luxury space in 2022, Compass accounts for 13.3% market share. Douglas County - located about 30 minutes south of downtown Denver - consists of either all or part of the following cities: Littleton (including Highlands Ranch), Castle Rock, Castle Pines, Parker, Lone Tree, Roxborough Park and Sedalia among others.
It’s also no surprise that among those luxury sales, Compass agents listed the top three sales in Douglas County in 2022:

In total, Compass boasts over 1050 agents statewide (72 principal agents joined in 2022) and over 700 in the Denver Metro area. Founding Agent of Compass Denver Jessica Northrop made the switch and has helped lead the charge, ranking as the #1 Individual Agent each of the past two years. “This is further proof that Compass delivers what they promise to agents: unmatched tools, support and a vision in how a brokerage can change the game. We’re continuing to dream big on what we provide for our clients and how we can help them to accomplish their real estate goals." says Jessica.
“Dreaming big” is one of eight entrepreneurial principles Compass features as core values and they serve as a roadmap for the company and its agents. These include:
Douglas County currently has a population of nearly 375,000 (source U.S. Census 2021) and was the fastest growing ‘exurb’ in the 30-year period from 1990-2019 experiencing 481% population growth. An “exurb” is generally used to refer to communities that exist beyond the traditional suburban areas but are still economically connected to a large metropolitan area. It was also recently ranked by U.S. News as the #1 Healthiest Community in America in 2019 (it ranked as #3 in 2022).
With a vibrant community, strong real estate market and the power of the nation’s top brokerage leading the way, Douglas County has made its mark in Colorado…as has Compass.
