The Developer

An entrepreneur from a young age, Mark Palmero L'Boe
started his first business in 1973 that grew to one of the|
largest foreign-car automotive centers in the Midwest. It was here that his creative
marketing skills and ability to organize and systematize business processes took form.

Mark is now a 22-year veteran real estate sales entrepreneur. As the owner of
Realty-24 since 1987, his career has spanned three economic downturns and each time his business emerged better, stronger and more successful. He has become known as the "real estate marketing guru," working relentlessly to develop marketing tools designed to increase agent productivity.

Serving as a professional recruiter, trainer and co-manager for a Century 21 office, his marketing tools helped guide them to profitability through the recession of the early 1990's.

When he returned to personal sales production, armed with the many marketing tools he personally developed, he sold an average of two homes per week – one every two and a half business days – with a peak of 126 closings in a single year, more than 12 times the industry average of 10 per year. He achieved this feat working completely alone, without pooling the production of a team of assistants and buyers agents. To this day it remains the record for the highest per-person unit sales of any unassisted single agent in St. Louis – for single-family residential resales.

In 2005, he took a sabbatical from active real estate sales to redirect his experience and entrepreneurial creativity and take his career to the next level. Working as the chief architect and with a team of talented advisors for almost five years, culminated in the founding of a real estate brokerage business management company called Compass Realty Systems or “CRS” for short.

For more info visit or contact Realty Office Business Brokers offers brokerage owners a more profitable way to sell their business and/or retire; by turning over daily management to a professional third-party brokerage management company; and joining a network of brokers who participate in a Unified Exit Plan that maximizes net proceeds when selling their business.

The residential real estate office where the various CRS concepts were tested is now the prototype TREBB conversion office. The first goal is to build this office to 50 productive agents using a combination of individual agent recruiting and an open invitation to other like-minded small brokerage owners looking expand their potential using the CRS/TREBB business model. 

Private capital investors are invited to participate in the growth, profits, and Unified Exit Plan described in the examples below.

Compass Realty Systems will assist participating brokerage owners in the conversion of their  independent brokerage offices to the TREBB model. 

Any participating broker to the left and above (except Broker A)
will participate in the eventual CRS Unified Exit Plan.

The CRS TREBB business plan is to grow the St. Louis network
to 30+ locations and achieve a collective market share of 30% to 40% –– likely enough to attract a corporate buy-out offer that rivals the $62M Cendant/NRT paid for Gordon Gundaker's company in 2001. We call our plan "Chasing Gordon". (Visit for more information).

Broker-owners and potential investors should contact
Bob Vanderselt, an independent business broker
representing Realty Office Business Brokers of St. Louis.

Example D
Broker D utilizes a leap-frog approach to open several TREBB office locations:

When Broker D's TREBB is operating at full capacity, he sells 60 units for cash.

He uses the proceeds to open his TREBB #2 and when it reaches full pipeline, he sells another 60 units and opens TREBB #3.

Broker D continues opening additional TREBBs using the partial sale of TREBBs to open each new location.
