They created their team just 5 years ago and finished in the top 20% of all Realtors in their first year in the business. They have quickly escalated to consistent top 1% producers in San Francisco. In 2019, Aaron and Michael collectively sold over 62 properties and $86m in sales volume and continue to raise the bar for themselves every year.

Aaron is a Bay Area native, born and raised in both San Francisco and Marin County. He has loved everything Bay Area for as long as he can remember. Attending Giants games at Candlestick Park (and now at AT&T Park), watching the Blue Angels on the Marina Green, and sampling the local cuisine in the eclectic neighborhoods San Francisco has to offer are just a few of his favorite past times. He also enjoys skiing in Tahoe, photography, and basketball. Although Aaron loves to travel, the best city in the world is right in his backyard and he can’t imagine living or working anywhere else.
After graduating with honors from St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco’s Sunset district, Aaron graduated Cum Laude from Santa Clara University while receiving his BS in Finance and minor in Operations Management. Upon graduation, Aaron joined AT&T as a manager and thrived as a sales leader, mentor, and motivator for the entire Bay Area. He consistently ranked in the Top 10 in Northern California for sales achievement and goal attainment while breaking records in nearly every metric at multiple locations. Despite this, Aaron wanted to take his career to the next level.
Utilizing his love of sales, background in Finance, and desire to be the best in real estate, he has teamed up with his brother Michael to join the ranks of some of the city’s finest real estate professionals at Compass.

As a San Francisco native, he knew that the city by the bay would be the ultimate destination point to embark on his Real Estate career. Growing up in San Francisco and Marin County, Michael brings knowledge, expertise, and an unbridled passion for both sides of the bay. Whether it is eating at a cafe in Sausalito overlooking the skyline, attending a Giants game at AT&T Park, or taking a walk through Golden Gate Park, you will never meet anyone who is more enthusiastic about all things Bay Area.
After graduating with honors from St. Ignatius College Preparatory in the Sunset District of San Francisco, Michael excelled at Business Marketing and Communication while graduating Magna Cum Laude in the top 10 percent of his class at the University of Southern California (USC).
Michael accepted a job at the Target Corporation at the West Coast headquarters in Pasadena, CA and became one of the youngest executive managers.

Although he knew that the Target Corporation was only a temporary destination before entering into the Real Estate field, his experiences provided him with the consummate meaning of what it takes to work hard and put in the long hours necessary for success.
Michael left the corporate world deciding it was time to pursue his dreams of starting in the real estate industry and creating a collaborative team with his brother, Aaron.

Ken genuinely cares about his clients and it shows. His attention-to-detail helps him deeply understand their specific needs and his strong negotiation skills ensure that those specific needs are met. He is with his clients every step of the way and, when the process is over, they are thrilled with their results.
Importantly, Ken knows what it’s like to wear his clients’ shoes. He has shopped at the Ferry Building, marched in the gay pride parade, played tennis in Golden Gate Park, and shared San Francisco residents’ experiences for nearly 30 years. His career in San Francisco includes sales and marketing for top firms, such as Cisco and Chase, where he honed his fluency with the Bay Area’s unique economic cycles.
Ken distinguishes himself amongst his peers by approaching real estate with the novel belief that all parties to a transaction are partners, not adversaries. This positively-charged approach helps Ken create a negotiating environment in which buyers and sellers alike can comfortably express their needs and reach an agreement that feels like a victory for all involved. This approach requires a great deal of communication and, for that reason, Ken purposefully limits the number of clients he will handle at a given time to make sure that no one gets any less than his best.
