"We are all Dreamers" - Great message from our CEO Gary Beasley yesterday as we start the process of moving offices. Our team is expanding, our footprint is growing, and we continue our journey to building something great!
Innovation Built on Experience
The Single-Family Rental sector has stuck to the old way of doing things for far too long – it’s an industry ripe for disruption. Roofstock is leading the way.
Roofstock is the first online marketplace created exclusively for investing in leased Single-Family Rental homes that generate cash flow day one. Created by investors for investors, Roofstock provides research, analytics, and insights to evaluate and purchase independently certified properties.
Roofstock turns the old way of investing on its head, bringing transparency and efficiency to create a better way to transact. Buyers access vetted homes with current cash flow. Sellers market homes without lost income or disrupting tenants. Neighborhoods avoid signs in yards which could depress values. It’s win-win all around.
The most revolutionary aspect of the Roofstock marketplace is enabling investors to treat their real estate investments more like stock portfolios, focusing on asset allocation, rather than dealing with the hassles of researching and buying vacant homes that need to be repaired and leased. This creates significant time and cost savings for all parties.
The leadership team at Roofstock brings together some of the top players from the Single-Family Rental industry under one “roof” (pun intended), including a top principal investor, the CEO of one of the largest public Single-Family Rental companies, the leading investment banker in the space and one of the sector’s most active financiers. Add some of Silicon Valley’s top tech talent and investors, and you have Roofstock!

I have been working at Roofstock full-time (More than a year)
The leadership is inclusive and transparent. The team of very talented people are shear joy to work with. Work is focused and very goal oriented, so its easy to know how to be successful. The office is in an awesome location in Oakland with lots of parking for us commuters and you get to see everyone you with whom you work on a daily basis-- most of us are right here!
Its a start-up in the most essential sense, so check your big corporation way of thinking at the door. It doesn't work here. Many processes are not defined, but that is an opportunity to influence the future and define an idea set of processes. No too bad for "cons" huh?
Advice to Management
Keep the eye on the goals and opportunities being small and fast brings. Maintain the high level of emphasis on fit when hiring new people. You have done an awesome job so far!
I applied online. I interviewed at Roofstock (Oakland, CA) in June 2017.
Initial interview was a phone conversation with the VP of R&D. We had a good chat about the company, the goals of the position, and how my experience might relate. I greatly appreciated the direct contact from the hiring manager. The conversation was enjoyable. In the end, I was not a good fit for the position and was not given an offer. I agree with their decision and appreciate their timeliness and interview process.
