Creating Lasting Connections: Compass’s Commitment to Incline Village’s Community and Real Estate Dreams

November 6, 2023 | Member Submitted

No one expected a dreadlocked fifteen-year-old who cared more about his DJ business than his homework to grow up to become one of the youngest-ever White House fellows, create multiple nonprofits, and found a multibillion-dollar company. But Robert Reffkin — raised by an Israeli immigrant single mother, disowned by his maternal grandparents for being Black, and abandoned by his father — has always defied the odds.

In 2012, Robert Reffkin co-founded the online real estate technology company Compass, Inc. with Ori Allon. The inspiration for his business came from his mother, who suffered hardships working as a real estate agent. Reffkin was inspired to use technology to improve the ability of agents to build their brand, analyze data, and conduct market research to make their business more efficient and profitable.

In a testament to Compass’s rapid growth, the renowned real estate brokerage has recently acquired a foothold in the stunning Lake Tahoe region. In 2021, the highly anticipated opening of the Incline Village office introduced cutting-edge technology to this market, all in pursuit of the shared mission to help individuals discover their perfect place in the world.

With the launch of the Compass office in Incline Village, a vibrant and close-knit community, our team is committed to providing unwavering support and expertise to residents seeking their dream homes. Tracy Cohn, an accomplished Sales Manager and Nevada Broker of Record, proudly leads this office and envisions a future where the local business flourishes, contributing to the overall prosperity of the Incline Village community.

At Compass, we believe that finding the right home is more than just a transaction – it’s an opportunity to create a lasting connection with the community. We are thrilled to be a part of Incline Village’s journey, assisting individuals and families with their real estate needs and actively engaging in community initiatives. Together, let’s build a brighter future, one home at a time.
