Episode 8: Smooth Operator

From my perspective, if you’re not making someone mad, you’re probably not doing the right thing.

Compass has been making waves since its inception in 2012. The company has been building a disruptive real estate platform that pairs top agents with cutting-edge technology, making the overall buying experience fast and seamless. On Episode 8, Emily chats with Compass’ Bill Fowler. As the company’s Senior Director of Industry Relations, he smooths the edges on the dynamics of launching a modern brokerage model by ensuring MLS partners are prepared to support their unique needs, in addition to serving as the face for both the agents and the tech staff. Listen to the two talk about everything from burning to bridges to beer (pro tip: go dark), and Compass’ secret sauce for recruiting rock star talent.
