Open Listings "Take Big Risks" Scholarship

-- Our scholarship has been discontinued as a result of being acquired by and merging businesses. Thanks to all who participated.

Who are we

Open Listings is an all-in-one homebuying app that gives users the knowledge, tools and support to confidently buy any home and get a commission refund of up to 50%, which can cover up to half of a buyer's down payment. We let buyers find, tour and buy homes using an entirely online process that's been optimized for buyers in competitive markets.

We currently have just over 30 employees and are based in Los Angeles, CA.

Our purpose

We allow people to make big moves.

By building confidence & giving buyers more power, we enable people to make
big moves in their lives. We do this because we aren’t afraid to make our own big moves — like completely changing the way people buy homes.

Our Mission

At Open Listings, our mission is to make homebuying simple and affordable, by giving everyone the confidence to own their future. Our company is filled with college grads from all over the country and we know how valuable that experience was in preparing us for our daily work. We couldn’t have graduated without a little help along the way, and we want to give back to outstanding students.
