Who we are

We’re a two-person team based out of Los Angeles and San Francisco. We met snowboarding in Southern California back in 2008. Our shared passion for being outdoors led us to start a business centered around helping investors who prefer to pursue their hobbies or spend more time with their family – rather than thinking about real estate 24/7. We’re privileged to do what we do so we’ve pledged to donate 1% of our gross income annually. Chat with us to hear about the causes we donated to last year.

We partner exclusively with White Haven Capital on all of our investments. Our partners, Sam Grooms and Ben Leybovich, live in Phoenix so they manage daily operations and renovations while we support investor relationships, technology implementation, and acquisitions due diligence. Below is a picture of us closing our first property.
