What is a private exclusive listing?

A Private Exclusive listing is an off-market home that can be shared by a Compass agent directly with their colleagues and their buyers. Property details aren't disseminated widely and won't appear on public home search websites.

How do buyers find Private Exclusive listings?

Buyers can access Private Exclusives by working directly with John and Trevor. Once you are working with us, we reach out to our extensive network of agents, builders, and influential clientele to find off-market opportunities, including private exclusive listings. We can also set up a curated collection with email alerts to keep you at the leading edge of the current market. We proactively search for homes that no one else has access to, just for our clients.

Why might a seller choose to list their home as a private exclusive?
