Gretchen Coley, with more than $1 billion in sales volume, is named President of the Southeast division of the Women of Compass initiative.
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA March 8, 2022 — Compass Real Estate, the leading agency in technology-enhanced residential real estate, announced today that Gretchen Coley of the Coley Group would lead the southeast region of Women of Compass. Gretchen is joined by Cassy Pierre of Compass Atlanta to serve as co-president of the new collaborative initiative.
“It’s such an honor to lead such an impressive group,” Coley said. “We are so excited to bring women together across the Atlanta, Charlotte, and Greater Raleigh regions to promote diversity, inclusion, and collaboration.”
The Women of Compass initiative was established in 2016 by three Compass women across various departments. Open to all agents, administrative, and supporting staff members, the program was started to establish a collaborative and inspiring environment within the company.
“It has always been a passion of mine to support female entrepreneurs,” Coley said. “As wives, mothers, employees, and business owners, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated. By surrounding ourselves with other women walking similar paths, we can find inspiration and motivation to accomplish our goals.”
Upon Compass' expansion into North Carolina just last year, Gretchen was honored with the title of Founding Agent. Driven by a passion for providing exceptional service, Gretchen has successfully closed over 1,800 homes and is among the top 1% of agents in the Greater Raleigh area. Licensed in North Carolina since 2000, Gretchen built her business on a foundation of concierge service and takes great pride in providing a comprehensive experience for both buyers and sellers. With over $1 Billion in sales, Gretchen has quickly achieved recognition as one of the top-producing Compass agents worldwide.
“I love being a part of the Compass community,” Coley said. “We really strive to collaborate rather than compete, and the relationships I’ve made on this journey have been such an important part of my business growth.”
The newly-formed southeastern division of Women of Compass aims to promote diversity and inclusion through continuous education, panels, workshops, and events. An emphasis on diverse professions, ethnicities, and ages is prioritized to ensure a well-rounded and supportive group.
“Cassy and I are dedicated to providing a safe and productive atmosphere for all team members throughout the southeast,” Coley said. “I’m so excited to begin this journey with the wonderful women of Compass.”
The mission of Women of Compass is to provide a supportive, collaborative, and inspiring environment within Compass for all women to discuss, learn, and teach one another valuable skills for personal and career success. The Women of Compass initiative aims to become an inclusive environment open to all ages, occupations, and ethnicities.
