A strategic partnership with Compass, the leader in property transactions in the United States

In the press


The luxury division of Compass, the number 1 real estate company in the United States in terms of sales, specialising in transactions and marketing and listed on the NYSE, with a network of more than 28,000 real estate agents and the largest real estate database in the country, and BARNES, a highend international real estate company, officially announced a partnership at the Compass Summit in New York.

This partnership between BARNES and Compass is in response to numerous requests from the respective clients of these two companies renowned for their expertise.

On the one hand, Compass offices will pass on all real estate investment requests relating to the non US market to the 130 BARNES offices around the world. In particular, this partnership will enable the American unicorn to direct its American clients to the appropriate BARNES contacts in order to direct them to the most sought-after properties in many prestigious international destinations such as Paris, Geneva, London and Dubai, as well as in highly sought-after holiday destinations such as Saint-Tropez, Cannes and Monaco.

On the other hand, the BARNES network will redirect its clients looking to buy orsell a property in the United States in one of the states where it does not have a presence, to one ofthe 300 Compass offices in the country.

'Like Compass, BARNES has built its leadership position and reputation on solid entrepreneurial principles. Passion, optimism, tailor-made solutions and the flexibility to reinvent ourselves are also values rooted in its culture. BARNES understands that the buying and selling of luxury and ultra-luxury properties are not simply commercial transactions, but must be a complete experience through which the relationship of trust between agent and client is built'

says Thibault de Saint Vincent, Chairman of BARNES

'Driven by a shared desire to collaborate and open up to new opportunities, this innovative partnership opens the door to the global market for Compass,'

comments Felipe Hernandez Smith, Director ofLuxury at Compass


The collaboration between Compass and BARNES was born out of a meeting between Thibault de Saint Vincent and Robert Reffkin, CEO and founder of Compass. Inspired by Compass' innovative technologies, BARNES seized the opportunity to get closer to Compass.

With this partnership, BARNES will support the needs of American buyers looking to purchase properties abroad, where luxury and ultra-luxury properties are often presented exclusively by a single real estate agent or remain off the market.
