About Compass Estates—

Most real estate agents or teams highlight their background and why they got into real estate. But does that actually answer the question a potential client is asking? Isn’t the question, ‘why would I choose you to guide me in such an important decision?’ We believe we have a strong answer to that question.

With well over a thousand transactions under their belt, Katie and Dan haven’t lost focus on what makes them successful.

When you are going through a purchase or a sale, that is all that is on your mind. It’s a huge decision not to be taken lightly.

Katie and Dan recognize that and treat each client as though they were their only client. But what does that look like?

They pick up the phone when you call, they answer a text or an email promptly, they are available to talk through what’s going on and what next steps are. They provide updates on showings that have happened at your home, and detailed analytics of activity in the market.

Each client is a ‘million dollar’ client. Katie and Dan have built their business on over-delivering against expectations for their clients, and that not only leads to repeat transactions with clients, but referrals to friends and family as well. With very different skills, the team brings the ‘best of both worlds’ to your advantage.

With Katie, you get a seasoned professional who focusses on the emotional side of client relationships and transactions. Not just the ‘nuts and bolts’, but the feelings and emotions of transactions.

Dan brings the data and analytics, really the ‘yin’ to Katie’s ‘yang’. With decades of negotiating experience, and an advanced business degree, Dan’s ability to look outside of the box for solutions and outcomes brings a unique value to clients.

Both Katie and Dan are full time REALTORS® and are passionate about helping you navigate through the complexities of real estate, leveraging their vast experience of previous experiences to only serve you better.
