About Us

Compass Development Group (CDG) is a family real estate development and investment firm located in Salt Lake City, Utah.  CDG was formed in 1986 when Steve decided to leave his position as president of a national real estate syndication, development and private equity firm in order to spend more time with his young family and take on the challenge of starting a new business. His son Ben joined the family business in 2007 after leaving his position with the Trammel Crow Company in Southern California.

During its 27 year history, CDG has delivered exceptionally strong returns to its investors through a rigorous screening and due diligence process coupled with incredibly detailed operational oversight.  We are passionate about our communities and continually strive to offer the highest quality product to the residents who call one of our communities “home.”

CDG is continually expanding its presence through both new construction and acquisition of existing communities.  The development arm of CDG is focused on multifamily development along the Wasatch Front and currently has over 500 residential units under development and construction. The other half of CDG’s business, its private equity arm, invests in multifamily properties and other strategic assets throughout the United States.
