The Offerpad experience has been more than a decade in the making.
It all started with Brian Bair and Jerry Coleman, two real estate professionals who had a vision for making a better home selling experience. In 2009 they joined forces and began buying and selling thousands of homes across the country.
Over the course of the next six years, Brian and Jerry gained a deep understanding of the challenges people face trying to sell their home. They found that even successful sellers were overwhelmed by the stress of selling - trying to guess what their home would sell for, prepping for showings, negotiating a deal, finding movers, and waiting for the closing. Why wasn’t there a better way?
So, the pioneering duo set out to offer something new to the industry. They had a clear goal: to reinvent the home sale process by providing sellers with convenience, control and certainty. In 2015, Offerpad was born. Using on-demand technology, along with their industry experience, they created a platform where sellers could come and get a fair and fast purchase offer for their home, contract and close, all without a number of the hassles associated with traditional real estate selling.
