I am honored and excited to join The Scholz Team, one of the founding teams at Compass! After 11 successful years at Sotheby's International Realty, I was recruited in September to join Compass, and can genuinely say that I could not be happier with this decision. Upon first meeting with Cindy, I learned very quickly that her personality, experience, mindset, and forward-looking goals for her growing team were a natural fit for me. The momentum since joining has been swift and I'm primed and ready to enjoy the ride! I feel empowered to harness the deep experience I gained while at Sotheby's with the best platform in the business at Compass with a well-balanced team of dynamic professionals, led by Cindy!
Compass is a revolutionary company and can be equated to the Google of real estate. Revolutionary both for the innovative proprietary tools which are making selling and buying real estate better than ever before, but also for the core mission that the company was built upon: "To help everyone find their place in the world". In 6 short months with Compass, it's very clear to me that this mission rings true on every level: indeed as a broker, my mission is to help my clients find or sell their home, and I am better positioned than ever to do so. But what is equally as impressive and important to me, and something that the public may not see, is that these values permeate the fabric of the culture within the company - top to bottom, left to right, from the CEO / Founder and senior management to the staff that builds, designs, markets and supports us, agents, down to folks that clean and keep the buildings beautiful and safe. Each person is valued and given the same opportunity to work hard and elevate.
12 years a NYC resident, my life, and real estate expertise are split between Brooklyn and Manhattan. I've lived in many of the Brooklyn neighborhoods, play a host of racquet games at the Racquet & Tennis Club in midtown (of the top US amateurs in Court Tennis). Working out of Upper East Side Sotheby's office, I gained experience doing business in all locations of Manhattan, and all price-points. My faith is central to me - Christian in practice, but broad and open. I'm on the Vestry of The Church of the Ascension, an Episcopal church in Greenwich Village (2 blocks south of Compass :), where I volunteer at the Food Pantry and Homeless Shelter. There is a bi-coastal history too; I have family roots in Los Angeles and significant time spent there throughout my life, and a newer found appreciation for the Bay Area, having spent a harvest season in 2014 working on a wine vineyard (Alysian - run by a prep-school friend) in Sonoma County California.
I look forward to harnessing my own personal real estate expertise within the fabulous and multi-dimensional team Cindy has built, under her good leadership! Youth combined with years of experience doing deals in all parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, I believe Team Scholz is positioned perfectly to service our client base and refer you to local experts in all of our markets here and abroad.
