Rock the House

Compass’ Jaymee Espinueva has a thing for shoes. But her empathetic leadership style has us head-over-heels.

IF THE SHOE FITS

Espinueva’s personal style features an expert mix of classic silhouettes, avant-garde separates, and delightful pops of color. So, whether she’s preparing to step into the office or partake in a night out in her swanky South Lake Union neighborhood, you will find her dressed to the nines in timeless — and oftentimes joyful — ensembles that reflect her natural charm and infectious optimism. But the secret to the Nordstrom alum’s eye-catching style? “I build my outfit starting with my shoes,” said Espinueva. “Once that is decided, the outfit can come together.”

THE PERFECT OFFER

As the Regional Marketing Lead for Washington state’s arm of Compass Real Estate, Espinueva leads a team of eight experts to ensure that the communication and branding needs of its agents are met. This includes the company’s Bellevue office — the largest in the state — with nearly 300 agents. Her team covers a lot of ground, utilizing the tech-forward tools that Compass has developed to offer a competitive customer service advantage.

WELL AND GOOD

It’s hard not to be in awe of Espinueva’s radiant complexion, which she attributes to a disciplined skin-care routine and focus on personal wellness. This passion also is at the core of her leadership style, and she takes her role as a mentor seriously. “It’s hard to compartmentalize at work if there is something affecting you at home,” she elaborated. “I encourage my team to be authentic and invest time in their mental health.”
