“Compass is a visionary company,” Adelaide Polsinelli told Commercial Property Executive. “With Compass Commercial, the successful, technology-led platform that the company has used in residential brokerage will now be unleashed in the investment sales world. I’m thrilled to be on the ground floor of this opportunity.”
