BARNES X Compass: A Global Luxury Referral Program

BARNES INTERNATIONAL REALTY continuously enhances its agents' abilities to provide optimal service to luxury clients.
This BARNES / COMPASS partnership is designed to meet the needs of our respective clients locally and internationally.
Our new referral program with the No.1 Broker in the U.S. with 300 offices spread over 39 states means BARNES agents can now access COMPASS’ exclusive listings across the United States.

When you work with BARNES, you partner with one of the most renowned and trusted international luxury real estate group and one of the local leaders in Miami in the Prime Segment.

BARNES became acquainted with Compass agents at an event at the French Embassy in Washington DC, during a presentation about Compass. Thibault de Saint Vincent, President of BARNES, and his Barnes colleagues were so impressed by Compass’ technologies and philosophies, they initiated next steps to align their flourishing business with Compass.

Through BARNES’ affiliate referral program with Compass, our agents now have direct access to their national ultra-high-net worth clientele, and vice versa for Compass, their agents have now access to our international ultra-high-net worth clientele. This means when an international BARNES client would like to purchase a home in certain markets across the United States, they will be directly referred to a Compass agent. The same holds true when Compass’ luxury clients wish to purchase a home overseas: the buyer and their Compass agent will be directly referred to a BARNES agent. This concierge-style networking tool is especially advantageous for American citizens buying abroad, where luxury and ultra-luxury properties are often exclusively shown by a single brokerage or simply off-market. Since BARNES is the #1 brokerage in France and a top brokerage in the most coveted luxury international markets, BARNES represents a high proportion of luxury inventory, giving Compass agents direct access to the most exclusive properties.
