Meet Our Dedicated Team Of Luxury Real Estate Professionals

$2 Billion Sold | Over 1,500 Units | Manhattan | Brooklyn

Design Build at Compass, co-founded by Lyon Porter, Stephen McArdle, and Jonah Katz, blends award-winning design with encyclopedic knowledge of the market to deliver one of the most dynamic and creative teams in residential brokerage. The founders have represented over $2 Billion across 1,500 closed transactions encompassing every asset type: new development towers in Manhattan, pre-war lofts in Brooklyn, multi-million dollar development sites, and penthouses including the storied Puck Building and The Parc Imperial.

The founder’s expansive resume in design — having been featured in Architectural Digest and many other design and hospitality publications — allows for a unique approach through every step of a real estate transaction, whether it be the design and pre-development of a condo tower, overseeing the gut renovation of an individual owner’s property, or staging a resale property to position it to sell at the highest price. The ability to wear many hats — top producing broker, developer, designer, hotelier, and social media expert — has firmly placed Design Build at the forefront of New York City's real estate landscape.
