Despite its $1 billion valuation, startup brokerage Compass is having trouble retaining some of its Los Angeles-based recruits. 

The firm took the L.A. scene by storm when it launched in 2015, poaching some of the West Coast’s top talent, but it has now seen a crop of recent hires return to their former firms. In one exodus, three brokers left last September. More recently, Brent Watson defected back to Coldwell Banker. So far, at least seven agents have left Compass after being at the firm for a year or less.

To see a rundown of brokers who’ve jumped ship, watch the video above.
