Strategic Growth Partner
At Compass, our mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. Founded in 2012, we’re revolutionizing the real estate industry with our end-to-end platform that empowers residential real estate agents to deliver exceptional service to seller and buyer clients.
Our Strategic Growth team is the face of the company and the engine of our market expansion. As a Strategic Growth Partner, you are directly responsible for driving net-new pipeline for our Strategic Growth Team.
In its simplest form, the SGP’s role is to educate the Compass Agent Community on the benefits and importance of contributing to the Strategic Growth of Compass. Successful SGPs partner with Compass Agents to identify who in their network of Prospective Agents should be introduced to a Strategic Growth Manager. The Strategic Growth Manager then meets with the Prospective Agent to discuss the Compass value proposition (technology, marketing, culture and growth). SGPs are the future of the Strategic Growth organization. In addition to the direct impact this role has as a partner to the SGMs in the market, you will ultimately be working toward the goal of becoming an SGM yourself. From onboarding all the way through a formal SGP-to-SGM training program, your focus will be on developing the skills and knowledge that line a direct path into the closing sales position.
