    About Us

    Honest Buildings is setting a new standard for how to manage construction projects and portfolios. Our software empowers commercial real estate owners to work smarter, faster, cheaper and make better decisions. To quote one of our larger clients, "Honest Buildings brings order to the chaos of commercial real estate."

    Launched in 2012, Honest Buildings’ platform has originated over $15 billion (!) in projects and has partnered with many of the leading owners and developers in New York City, Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago, Dallas and LA.

    We are building a tool for a huge trillion+ dollar industry that has been completely offline until now, ushering them into a new era with technology and data to provide powerful insights they’ve never had access to before. This industry is deeply important to us because buildings are something each of us interact with every single day, and those buildings add up to the cities in which we live. It’s an industry with some of the most interesting, complex problems, and we need the best people to solve them.
