It did not take Compass long to rise to the both the top of the Colorado real estate industry and the national market. After just a couple of years, Compass became the #1 brokerage in Metro Denver in sales volume surpassing established brokerages that had been known around Colorado for decades and has remained there for three consecutive years. In 2022, Compass also became the #1 brokerage in the country and was named a Fortune 500 Company. With those accomplishments, and built on the foundation of placing advanced technology and tools at the fingertips of its growing number of agents (now 25,000+ nationally) to serve their clients, it would come as no surprise that Compass now leads Douglas County in luxury real estate (home sales of $2,000,000+).
Douglas County currently has a population of nearly 375,000 (source U.S. Census 2021) and is among the healthiest and fastest-growing communities in the country and includes all or part of cities such as Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Castle Pines, Castle Rock, Lone Tree, Roxborough Park, Parker and more. According to a press release by Compass, their agents accounted for over $88,000,000+ in total closed volume in the luxury space in 2022, good for an impressive 13.3% market share.
The Schossow Group became one of the first in the state to make the switch to Compass in 2019 and has benefitted from its technology, network, tools and support. “Compass has given us access to resources that we could have only ever hoped for before and their continued dedication to our agents allows us to deliver the best possible solutions for our clients throughout all phases of a transaction and beyond. We’re proud to be a part of the Compass Denver team,” Nick Schossow says.
Among over 6000+ Douglas County home sales in 2022, The Schossow Group represented 4 of the top 50 transactions and 6 of the top 100.
Five of the Schossow Group’s top sales included beautiful homes at Ravenna in Littleton, where the team has been involved since the start of construction over 15 years ago. Of 243 original homes and homesites, the Schossow Group has represented the sale of more than 140 of them through the years and continues to feature a variety of inventory and new construction going into 2023.
7948 Dante Drive (also pictured above) at Ravenna, sold for $3,950,000 in 2022, is a 4 bed, 6 bath timeless contemporary masterpiece with over 6,000 finished square feet. The open floor plan features wall to wall windows capturing every view possible of Ravenna’s iconic red rocks and scenery including 16' according doors opening up to spacious outdoor living with a linear fire pit and custom outdoor kitchen.
7792 Raphael Lane, a new custom home sold for $3,300,000, is a mountain-modern home overlooking the 10th fairway at Ravenna. Designed by Chris Holzwart and built by Sterling Custom Homes, the home captures breathtaking views and provides a private, relaxed experience indoors and out – qualities that the Schossows say are paramount to what prospective home buyers are looking for in the area.
