The rapidly growing brokerage has acquired Central Coast Realty Group, bolstering its already formidable presence in California’s central coast.

Compass has acquired Central Coast Realty Group (CCRG), a central coast-based indie brokerage with 42 agents and five offices, the company announced Friday. With the acquisition, the New York City-founded Compass grows to more than 12,000 agents in 250 offices.

Eric Pinckert, the broker and co-owner of CCRG will stay on as the managing director of the northern central coast.

“By partnering with Compass, an innovator in the real estate industry, CCRG will be a part of the future of real estate alongside the best agents across the country,” Pinckert said in a statement.

Compass plans to retain all five of CCRG’s offices and all 42 agents and five staff members, a spokesperson for Compass told Inman. The spokesperson declined to share CCRG’s sales volume and transaction sides from 2018.

The acquisition is Compass’ second in California this year and fourth overall. In March, the Company announced the acquisition of Alain Pinel Realtors and last year, it acquired Pacific Union International and Paragon Real Estate Group.

Compass has grown precipitously on the backs of major acquisitions – including Stribling & Associates in New York, Avenue Properties in Seattle, Conlon Real Estate in Chicago and Wydler Brothers Real Estate in Washington D.C., in addition to the aforementioned California acquisitions.
