Who is Landed?

We are former teachers, organizers, real estate agents, consultants, and investors working together to serve essential professionals. We're on a mission to help education and healthcare professionals build financial security.

We founded Landed in 2015 to uphold those who uphold us. In expensive cities, high home prices make it difficult for these individuals to become the long-term residents our communities depend on. If we want stronger schools and safer communities, we need to support those who make it possible. 

The first place we tackled was our own backyard, the San Francisco Bay Area, where we created our shared equity down payment program. Since then, we’ve expanded to help essential professionals navigate all of their different options for buying a home in the communities where they work. Because having essential professional living in the communities they serve is beneficial to all, our down payment program is financially supported by organizations like the DRK Foundation and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Since our founding, we’ve been able to expand our reach across Seattle, Portland, Denver, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C and Hawaiʻi. Recent press coverage of our work can be found in The New York Times, Forbes, NPR, and The Wall Street Journal.
