The Compass Advantage

Small to middle market businesses form the core of every local economy. And in every local market, business owners find their time consumed with tracking vendors, employee relations, expense management and daily promotions to generate additional revenue.

With all of these necessary tasks, there is little time to devote to structuring favorable lease terms, upgrading licenses, and the administrative challenges of a continuing enterprise.

Compass First developed out of a need to address these challenges, saving both time and energy for small business owners. We provide a guide to commercial transactions and management. Whether you are ready for a new acquisition, an exit strategy, or an upgrade to your current business model, we will help you every step of the way.

Our Mission

To expedite the financial goals of small to middle market business owners.

Our Inception

With over a decade of experience in commercial real estate and business development, Matt Olufs spearheaded the birth of Compass First while seeking representation for his own business, and finding few available options. Small business structures require expertise in a number of areas, and few professionals were available who could represent the many facets of small business transitions. Compass First was created to fill this void, and provide a tenant-focused niche in the brokerage industry. As our local economies depend on the success of small business, now business owners have someone to depend on as well.
