The recent round of layoffs at Compass hasn’t meant across-the-board cuts in San Francisco, where the brokerage has hired Coldwell Banker Global Luxury’s Pacific Heights branch manager less than a year after he came aboard from a real estate legal practice.

Arthur Meirson will be a sales manager for Compass’ flagship San Francisco office near Ghirardelli Square, according to a press release.

Before coming to Coldwell last fall, Meirson was a real-estate attorney for 10 years at Goldstein, Gellman, Melbostad, Harris & McSparran. Meirson said during that time he got to know many of the agents he will be working with at Compass.
