One of the largest agent teams in Florida has joined Compass.
With 40 associates led by principal agents Chris Franciosa and Jared Ringel, The Atlas Team will operate out of Compass Florida’s newly opened Boca Raton branch, serving the greater Florida area with a focus on South Florida and Orlando.
“We’re thrilled to join Compass,” said Franciosa in a press release. “For us, there’s never been a better time to start this new journey. My partner Jared Ringel and I have been working together for nearly a decade and have assembled a team of diversified real estate experts who are incredibly passionate about what they do.”
Skilled in navigating complex debt and financial transactions associated with high-end residential and commercial sales and developments, Franciosa began his real estate career in the mortgage industry in Philadelphia. After the market turned in 2008, he founded MAPG, LLC, a real estate private equity firm that sourced, negotiated and executed on countless multimillion-dollar secured mortgage debt portfolio acquisitions. After acquiring a real estate brokerage in Orlando, Franciosa found a renewed passion for interacting directly with buyers and sellers of real estate.
With nearly two decades of industry experience, Ringel specializes in single-family and condominium sales throughout Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties. Ringel got his start as a commercial leasing agent after college, working on high-producing teams in New York and New Jersey. After successfully founding and running his own business for seven years, he sold his online platform and relocated with his family to South Florida, where he hit the ground running in the residential sales market. Ringel’s clientele includes high-profile celebrities, athletes and other high-net-worth professionals.
“The Atlas Team represents a culmination of years of hard work and the multitude of relationships my partner Chris Franciosa and I have created,” said Ringel. “We have extensive experience … finding and selling luxury properties for clients across the country. We are eager to bring this level of service to the Florida market.”
