Brennen Clouse


Brennen Clouse joined Avenue Properties in 2016, which merged with Compass in 2018, bringing with him a keen sense of community and an unmatched commitment for cultivating relationships, in-depth education and client satisfaction.


Brennen has been recognized as a cover story in Washington’s Top Agent Magazine for his exceptional client relationships and also as part of America’s Top 100 Real Estate Agents based on closed sales & volume, both awarded in 2019. Brennen is one of select agents featured as the “Best of Zillow” and consistently ranks in Yelp’s Top 15 agents in Seattle. Brennen has been a featured speaker for the local real estate Young Professional’s Network and for Compass’s event Compass Collaborates.


Brennen is highly regarded by his clients and peers for putting

collaboration and trust first, always working to have the most up-to-date market knowledge, and helping others achieve their goals with integrity. He brings his Midwestern values to the business of real estate with a refreshingly genuine, earnest and honest work ethic. Brennen’s mission is to build strong and lasting relationships with clients throughout the process of buying and selling one of the largest assets of their lives.

He believes a home is not only an investment, but is part of a person's identity, and therefore, should be treated with care, precision and a dutiful responsibility.


Brennen fell in love with the West Coast when he moved to attend Stanford University in Silicon Valley, California. Since calling Seattle home, he has spent several years working for Microsoft as a Relationship Marketer, where he built stronger customer relationships to encourage product love and engagement. Brennen uses the skills he learned in process and customer care to advocate for his real estate clients in a way that ensures they have an enjoyable and streamlined home sale or purchase.


Brennen decided to leave the corporate world because he was eager to work with customers face-to-face in a way that would leave a lasting impact on their lives. He brings a uniquely analytical mind to real estate from his work in the corporate world and leverages that know-how to help his customers make data-driven decisions about buying and selling.


In his spare time, Brennen volunteers as the President for the Stanford in Washington Alumni Board, works on his podcast “Close to Home,” and spend times with his Shiba Inu puppy, Mascha.
