Introducing Brendan

Hey there, it’s nice to meet you. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have joined Compass, but more importantly, the Scholz Team! You’re probably wondering who I am, where I came from, and why I decided to join Compass and this team.

I currently live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with my boyfriend and the occasional foster dog. I grew up in Pittsburgh as the oldest of four boys, spent four amazing years at Lehigh University studying finance and real estate before making my way to New York City. My first apartment was actually across the Hudson in Jersey City for a short year, and since then I’ve been in the city: first in Sutton Place/Midtown East, then Chelsea, and now Williamsburg.

Prior to joining Compass I worked at PNC, most recently in real estate banking where I got to learn the New York City market while working on construction loans and commercial mortgages. After 5 ½ years, I was ready to say goodbye to spreadsheets and hello to the people and properties that give New York City its pulse.

When the time came to pick a brokerage firm, I knew Compass was where I wanted to be after friends who worked here raved about the culture. I had to experience it for myself. And when an agent friend introduced me to Cindy, he said, “I could really see the two of you vibing.” The rest is history!
