About Ribbon

We help home buyers compete with investors and all-cash offers and win their dream home. We do this by enabling everyday home buyers and realtors with the technology, data science, and capital that only the largest investors have access to.

We also help home buyers who need to sell their previous home move stress-free. We buy and reserve their new home with a cash-offer, they move in and rent while they sell their previous home at maximum value.

Company Culture

Buying a home is the most important purchase of someone's life. We aim to build an experience worthy of the magnitude of the transaction.

We believe in radical candor - we challenge each other's ideas to make them better but we also deeply care about each other's growth and treat each other with respect.
