We’re always delighted to welcome spring in Boston, even after this unusually mild winter. For many Bostonians, spring begins with the first pitch at Fenway Park. As the weather turns nice, you’ll see the shops on Newbury Street prop their doors open and the bars and restaurants set up their outdoor patios. The city’s green spaces will be vibrant with activity, the Charles River dotted withwhite sails and the paths along its banks lined with runners. The Public Garden’s cherry blossom trees and tulips will soon be in full bloom and the swan boats will be back on the pond. The Boston Marathon, our city’s signature event, is just a week away and the South End Open Market will open for its thirteenth season at its new Ink Block location on May 1st. I love this time of the year and the many great ways to experience springtime in our wonderful city.
As signs of spring emerge, I’m pleased to share with you the second edition of Compass Quarterly where you’ll get a glimpse of the Compass culture and people in our offices across the country. Not only has our own CEO run 50 marathons, but our real estate agents are enjoying their cities’ bike paths, yoga studios, and urban harbors—sometimes with clients and sometimes in between open houses—and regularly engaging with and exploring the distinct terrains of their communities. Join me as we celebrate spring and active lifestyles, and enjoy our magazine. You can read the complete issue here. Happy spring!
