Tech-focused real estate brokerage Compass has nabbed several more top-producers from Coldwell Banker for its new Pasadena office.

It has poached mother and son team Linda and Brent Chang, who make up San Marino’s number one team by gross commission income, and Sabrina Wu, another of Coldwell’s top-producing agents, it said.

“Their incredible knowledge of the local market will add even more talent to our amazing West Coast team, and contribute to our long-term growth in Southern California,” said Robert Reffkin, Compass’ founder and CEO.

Linda Chang had been at Coldwell since starting her career there in 1979 and has been ranked the firm’s top producer in San Marino 20 times. Her son Brent joined her there in 2005. He is ranked in the top 1 percent of Coldwell agents nationwide.

The pair specializes in dealing with Asian homebuyers and investors, who have moved into the wildly affluent San Marino area in droves in recent years.

Wu has also been ranked in the top 1 percent of Coldwell agents nationwide.

Compass launched its first California office in Beverly Hills in November and has already recruited more than 70 brokers to join its ranks, including Stan Richman, Leah Sternberg and Jay Rubenstein.
