Compass Realty and Construction Group is a nonprofit subsidiary of the Fort Smith Housing Authority operating as a fully licensed and bonded Realtor and construction contractor. We help individuals looking to buy or sell a home, just like any other real estate agency. Our project managers work with clients hoping to remodel an existing home or build a new home from the ground up.
Where Compass Realty differs from other real estate agents and builders is our desire to help those less fortunate in our community. Any profits Compass Realty earns on full value or market-rate transactions are used to supplement government funding to pay closing costs and/or provide a down payment to help low- and moderate-income families buy their first homes. In the last 180 days, we have brokered about 12 real estate deals, half of those being affordable housing deals where financial assistance was provided.
This goal keeps the dream of home ownership achievable for a larger percentage of the population in Sebastian and Crawford counties. That in turn benefits all residents of both counties by keeping an increasing number of people in affordable housing, contributing mortgage dollars to the local economy, buying groceries, partaking in entertainment venues, adding to the local workforce and more.
