The Barron Team Joins The Real Brokerage in San Diego; Agent Network Surpasses 9,000 Across the U.S. and Canada

TORONTO & NEW YORK–The Real Brokerage Inc. (TSX: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced that The Barron Team, led by Emma Barron Lefkowitz and Brian Tague, has joined the company from Compass, Inc. The team’s addition brings the company’s agent count to more than 9,000.

Ranked in the top 1% of the 29,000 agents serving San Diego County, the 15-member team was Compass’ No. 1 producing team in the region for four consecutive years. The team closed more than 150 real estate transactions valued at more than $200 million in 2022. Since joining Real earlier this month, the team has signed seven new listings and has brought an additional eight transactions to escrow.

“Emma and Brian are two of the most respected agents in Southern California. They are true professionals and culture-carriers and their addition will fuel immense growth opportunities for The Real Brokerage,” said Sharran Srivatsaa, President of The Real Brokerage. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome them and the rest of the Barron team to the Real family.”

With nearly two decades of experience, Lefkowitz founded Barron Real Estate Group with her mother, long-time real estate broker Janice Barron, in 2014. Together, they ran a team of 20+ agents and sold over 800 homes totaling nearly $1 billion. After focusing in the foreclosure and short-sale market for a number of years, they became a household name in their local markets of Scripps Ranch and Auberge at Del Sur. The Barron Real Estate Group was acquired by Compass in 2018 at which time Lefkowitz and Tague partnered to form The Barron Team. For the past four years, the team has ranked in the top 10 in all of San Diego County, and Lefkowitz was named Realtor of the Year in 2022.

“The real estate industry is rapidly changing and agents deserve a brokerage that is investing in the technology and resources that allow us to best serve our clients. The Real Brokerage is that brokerage,” said Lefkowitz.

A former naval officer, Tague began his real estate career at the Barron Real Estate Group in 2016. Over the past six years, he has developed systems and strategies to help the team become the most organized and successful agents in San Diego.

“The culture of teamwork and collaboration at The Real Brokerage is unparalleled and will enable our team to bring a new level of service to our clients. We are excited to be a part of a growing organization that puts its agents first,” said Tague.
