Matt Olufs (805) 886-2919
With over a decade of experience in commercial real estate and business development, Matt Olufs began 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, business owners now have someone to depend on as well.
