Compass, the SoftBank-backed residential real estate brokerage, said Wednesday that it has added new features to its customer-facing website and app. 

Compass, founded in 2012, was last valued at $6.4 billion after a late July round of funding led by SoftBank. The company has raised a total of $1.5 billion, including three separate funding rounds. It has grown rapidly through acquisition of other brokerages, and was the sixth-largest US brokerage by transactions in 2018.

Compass, which is a high-profile name among a wave of companies looking to put a tech spin on real estate transactions, has had an eventful few weeks.

A number of top execs left the company in September, including head of communications Jason Post and chief operating officer Maelle Gavet. Gavet had told the Wall Street Journal in April that the company was "not yet at a stage where I have a very clear monetization strategy because we haven't really talked about it."
