The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
  • We act like owners, not just employees

Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
