CHAMBER MEMBER HIGHLIGHT:

Compass Real Estate

We are excited to shine the spotlight on one of our esteemed members - Compass Real Estate in Baker City, OR! As a valued member of our Chamber, Compass Real Estate has been making waves in our community with their exceptional services and commitment to excellence.


Compass Real Estate opened its doors in 2013 with the goal to be the real estate company you turn to for honesty, experience, ingenuity, and a dedicated work ethic. Since then, Compass has gained a well-deserved reputation as a top real estate office. This longevity and confidence comes form assisting a great many buyers & sellers with their real estate needs, and their recommendations to others that result in repeat and referral business that keeps us productive and successful.


As a full service Baker City and La Grande real estate team, we work with buyers, sellers, and investors in real estate transactions spanning all of the price ranges and property types. Be sure to stop in and say hi to Amy Briels, Owner and Principal Broker.
