Our Mission
is Simple

Be useful to our
Neighbors & Partners

Connect to Better Living
Founded in 2018, we do this through technology-enabled services and tools that provide a radically improved experience, without sacrificing quality or trust. Our primary focus on multifamily (apartment) communities allows us to improve life for our neighbors at a fair price and provide living wages for our service partners.

Our Core Values

Be Useful
It all starts and ends with the neighbor and we can’t serve the neighbor without our service partners. That’s why our technology and services are designed to help both neighbor and partner.
Be Curious & Learn
We create an environment of continuous learning, professionally and personally, and use that gained knowledge to create better solutions for our neighbors and partners.
What You See is What You Get
We’re transparent in what we do, including how we handle privacy protection. We do this because we’re more comfortable working with people we trust, and we think our colleagues, partners, and neighbors are too.
Lazy is Efficient
We take the simplest path whenever possible and always look for ways to make processes run smoother while still delivering high quality to our neighbors and partners.
Play Nice in the Sandbox
Yes, we’re transparent and efficient. That’s not a license to be mean or disrespectful. It means that we’re even more responsible for being respectful to our colleagues, partners, and neighbors.
