Work with me to sell your home as a Compass Private Exclusive

Listing your home as a private exclusive allows you to control what information is shared about you and your home while still getting exposure to top agents at Compass.

What to Expect

A private exclusive listing is an off-market home that can be shared by a Compass agent directly with their colleagues and their buyers. Property details aren’t disseminated widely and won’t appear on public home search websites.


Privacy is the ultimate commodity and the decision to sell your home is a personal one.


Decide when to share details about your home, including price, more broadly on your own timing.


Retain exposure to Compass agents, including premium placement on our agent facing platform.


Get the best offer by testing the market privately to gather key insights without your listing getting stale.

Success Story

“I can’t say enough good things about Sam after our experience with him as our realtor for our first home purchase. He searched persistently for us for a long time, and he used his connections to find us an off-market home in the exact area we wanted. He also worked very hard to negotiate a fair price for everyone involved. He is very responsive and present as a realtor, and he supports you through the emotional roller coaster that is buying a home with patient guidance and humor. I’ve already recommended him to others, and I will continue to do so.”

Reasons why you might choose to sell your home as a private exclusive:

    • New job or relocation
    • Family changes like marriage or divorce
    • Evolving financial circumstances.
      • Health issues
      • Valuable belongings like art or furniture
      • Opposition to holding open houses

      The Compass Private Exclusive program is not available in all markets including the Greater Seattle area and in some markets, agents may not be able to see all Private Exclusives. Where the program is available, pre-marketing and listing strategies are independently determined by the client. Compass does not recommend one particular strategy or guarantee results. In New York City, agents cannot promote the program, however, the option is available if sellers independently inquire.
