About Us

Our mission is to build a better designed World where communities and groups can connect deeply...real estate is our medium. We are a team of experts across product, technology, AI, data, marketing, growth, legal, and finance...with one thing in common, a passion for real estate and a drive to make a product people love with a community we trust.
from john, our founder
“We’re disrupting Real Estate and resetting expectations around what the future of hospitality looks like.

We demand a world that doesn’t force us to choose between the experience we want and the one money can buy. A world of owners, explorers, and entrepreneurs taking advantage of opportunity. And we believe we can have it all.

We're building for those who can buy a home — and recognize the freedom of choosing not to. For those who want to do well, but also do good for their community.”
Join us today.
