Elizabeth Convery is founder of VERY Real Estate, a boutique residential real estate firm specializing in sales and advisory based in Philadelphia, that she partnered with Compass RE in 2019. She believes homebuyers deserve a commitment to transparency and trust from their real estate agent and that home ownership is a path to building wealth over time.  Elizabeth has particular expertise in working with first-time home buyers and is passionate about raising the homeownership rate among her Millennial peers.

Elizabeth spent the first half of her career in commercial real estate. After a Graduate Degree from Cornell University in Hospitality and Real Estate Finance, she sold luxury hotels in New York. Over time, she felt unsatisfied with ‘making people very rich’ on the commercial side and wanted to use her knowledge of property to do something more impactful. Elizabeth also partnered her firm with Compass RE, the preeminent real estate technology company in the US to help boost the brokerage’s annual revenue.
