Our Story

When we say we’re the new standard in real estate back office and accounting, we mean it.

Everything we do here at Zipi is in search of a modern and
streamlined alternative to the old way of doing things.

Zipi’s team members are onboard because of their talent, not because of their proximity to an office. Why be in one location when you have the world at your fingertips? And maybe, just maybe, we prefer to work in our pajamas.

That’s why we chose to forgo the traditional office space to operate as a fully remote company.

We are on a Mission

Improve people's lives through real estate experiences.

And Have Big Goals

Going beyond just the broker and realtor. We aim to innovate and simplify the world around us while remaining committed to openness and transparency.

Think about it, do we really want our industry to be thought of as confusing and complicated?

No, and we’re finally the ones who will do something about it.

We are committed to our community and client success

Always do the right thing

Be optimistic

Committed to openness and transparency

Dedicated to 5-star service

Excellence in all things

Freedom to create

Global Kindness

Happiness above all else

Imagination

Meet The Team

Unique personalities, diverse skillsets, unified team.
