Founding team splash icon

At Roots, we believe that ANYONE should be able to invest in and build wealth through real estate… especially the Residents paying rent. Roots creates a unique investing ecosystem where commerce meets community. We see a world where those who have the resources to invest can make great returns while creating an opportunity for those traditionally left out to build wealth through the "Live In It Like You Own It ®" program. Today, American renters barely make enough to survive, much less save. Roots Residents can become owners and partners the day they move in with zero out-of-pocket costs. Roots is real-life proof that commercial endeavors can create positive community impact!
