Our mission is to reinvent real estate in the consumer’s favor.

Redfin got its start inventing map-based search. 

Everyone told us the easy money was in running ads for traditional brokers, but we couldn’t stop thinking about how different real estate would be if it were designed from the ground up, using technology and totally different values, to put customers first. 

So we joined forces with agents who wanted to be customer advocates, not salesmen. 
Since these were our own agents, we could survey each customer on our service and pay a bonus based on the review.  We deepened our technology beyond the initial search to make the home tour, the listing debut, the escrow process, the whole process, faster, easier and worry-free. And we gave customers more value, not just by saving each thousands in fees, but by investing in every home we sell, by measuring our performance and improving constantly. 

This is how real estate would be if it were designed just for you, because, well, it was.

A Different Kind of Startup

We're using technology to shake up a $60 billion industry and revolutionize the way people buy and sell homes. Are you in?

A Different Kind of Brokerage

We believe real estate should be built on exceptional client service and advocacy, and we need passionate agents like you to advance our vision.

And go all in at our Hackathon, a full-throttle throw-down in which engineers dream up new site features and code them to life within hours.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Redfin (Seattle, WA).


    I had an in depth phone interview with the recruiter. They asked behavioral/situational based questions about my current position and experience. From that, I was invited onsite to interview with 6-7 people for 30 min each. I heard back 2-3 days later.
