San Francisco, CA - Monday, February 12, 2024 - Compass, the largest residential real estate brokerage in the United States by transaction volume1 , announces the return of Mollie Poe and Declan Hickey, founding members of Compass San Francisco, along with their four-person team. With more than 27 years of real estate experience, they have earned a reputation of success, claiming a top spot in RealTrends' 2023 America's Best list with an impressive $110 million in sales volume. This recognition placed them at 10th in San Francisco and 76th in California. Their return home comes at a time when Compass has continued to invest in enhancing its leading technology platform and unique agent programs.

"We are excited to welcome back this highly-accomplished and respected team," says Kevin Patsel, Compass Regional Vice President of Northern California. "They are wellliked and their presence adds to our collaborative culture. With an already exceptional roster of agents across the NorCal market, this reunion helps secure Compass’ position as the leading brokerage in the Bay Area.”

As nationally ranked industry leaders and long-standing residents of San Francisco, Poe and Hickey have amassed a wealth of knowledge and expertise with regards to economic trends at play throughout the city’s wide range of micro-neighborhoods.

Poe and Hickey join Compass from Side, where they led the Indigo Real Estate Team since 2020. Now, reunited with Compass, they regain access to the industry’s leading technology platform and a vast network of known colleagues.

Compass has continued to invest in strengthening its agent-focused tools and programs. Last fall, Compass AI, a machine learning tool that empowers agents to craft compelling listing descriptions and design effective marketing strategies, was introduced. Additionally, Compass recently announced an international referral program in partnership with Barnes International, a leading European brokerage.

"All roads lead to home,” says Poe. “After three years of supporting our Indigo brand, Compass leadership has brought us back. Working with Robert to build a company out of a WeWork space back in 2015 makes returning to the camaraderie of the Compass family incredibly heartfelt!”

“In a world defined by virtual meetings, and as we continue to adapt to the changing dynamics of real estate, we are returning to Compass, where our community and technology seamlessly intersect under the same roof,” said Hickey.

Joining Poe and Hickey is a deep team of real estate professionals, including Julie Reber, Shane Nugent, Tasmin Eboo, and Tasneem Karimbai.
