Our Mission

The home-buying and selling process is broken

Buying a house is one of the most stressful experiences Americans will have in their lifetime. The process is confusing, time-consuming, and nerve-wracking. Unfortunately, it also often prioritizes wealthy corporations over honest, worthy people and their families.

It's more difficult than ever for agents to get their clients in the door and for real people to win. It doesn't have to be this way.

Buying and selling homes should be as enjoyable as living in them

We believe that buyers and their agents deserve more control and a better experience. We believe in homes, not houses. In real people, not institutions. In honesty, not black boxes and rules that say who is worthy.

We believe that this process should be inviting and exciting, not filled with roadblocks and mountains of paperwork. Lastly and most importantly, we believe that homes belong in the community. We’re here to help.

When a real estate investor purchases an owner-occupied home, the result is the drying up of supply. Through the past decade, this has resulted in a vicious cycle, with investors acquiring more than $1 trillion in real estate assets. This has put a lot of pressure on home supply and created a problem across the country.
